You would figure the Toronto Maple Leafs would be skating with heavy legs, after opening their season with an emotionally draining victory in Montreal the previous night. And for most of the Flyers’ season opener against the Maple Leafs Wednesday night, that’s the way it looked.
The Phillies finished what was expected to be a promising season losing 89 games and finishing 23 games behind first-place Atlanta. The Eagles were just throttled by the Denver Broncos, giving up the most points in a game since 1972, and don’t seem to be heading toward the post-season (though the NFC East could make it interesting). We know what the Sixers will bring and the theme of their season—losing on their way to [Andrew] Wiggins.
Chip Kelly began picking up the pieces on Monday after the disastrous 52-20 thumping the Eagles absorbed against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos did what was expected they would do to the woeful Eagles’ secondary and slice them up for a 52-20 victory.

The loss wasted an amazing effort by LeSean McCoy, who rushed for a game-high 158 yards rushing on 20 carries, including a 41-yard fourth quarter touchdown that put the Eagles within a score of tying the Chiefs.
It’s a perfunctory boxing ritual that can’t be helped. Danny Garcia’s victory over Lucas Matthysse was barely an hour old when talk of his next opponent was broached.
Chip Kelly addressed a number of things, after the Eagles’ last-second 33-30 loss on Sunday to the San Diego Chargers. Kelly admitted there is still a learning process. With him, with his team and the defensive schemes instituted by coordinator Bill Davis.
From the opening moments it was apparent Saul “Canelo” Alvarez could not stay with the faster, quicker, more-accurate punching Floyd Mayweather.
The Mayweather-Canelo fight could possibly exceed the record-breaking 2.5 million pay-per-view buys that Mayweather-De La Hoya attracted in 2007.
36-year-old Floyd Mayweather (44-0) will be facing undefeated 23-year-old Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, the WBC/WBA world champ (42-0-1) Saturday night in “The One,” from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
