Chiefs stunned at home by Raiders for first loss of season

Patrick Mahomes lost to the Las Vegas Raiders for the first time in his NFL career, and the Kansas City Chiefs’ five-game win streak against the Raiders was snapped after a 40-32 loss Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Raiders had lost seven straight at Arrowhead before Sunday, last winning there in 2012. It was also the Chiefs’ first loss since Week 10 of the 2019 season.

The last time the Raiders scored 40 or more points against the Chiefs? It was on Nov. 5, 2000 — and yes, Jon Gruden was in his first Raiders coaching tenure then. He was 0-4 against them since returning to the team prior to the 2018 season.

Return home not so sweet for 49ers in loss to Eagles – San Francisco 49ers Blog

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — After a successful 10-day trip to New Jersey and West Virginia, the San Francisco 49ers returned home Sunday night and looked like a team that left its juice on the East Coast.

The Niners struggled from the start in a disappointing 25-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The defeat dropped the Niners to 2-2 on the season and 0-2 at Levi’s Stadium.

Perhaps of more concern is that this is the latest and, perhaps, costliest in a series of sluggish performances for the Niners after they have had an extended stay back East.

LSU Football Quarterback Myles Brennan “Motivated” to Show Improvements After Week One Loss

The critiques on Myles Brennan and his first performance as a starter for LSU were varied. While the Tigers’ quarterback looked uncomfortable at times in the pocket and missed a few receivers down field, coach Ed Orgeron saw many positives in the performance as well. 

Brennan threw for 345 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the loss to the Bulldogs. On the surface those numbers aren’t bad but what the program and it’s fans have come to expect from the quarterback position has changed drastically in the last year.

When meeting with SEC media reporters on Wednesday, Orgeron said that Brennan flashed his immense potential against the Bulldogs and now it’s about getting that consistency on the right track.

“Myles made some big plays, he made some big throws down the field, scored 27 on offense,” Orgeron said. “But there are some things he can get better at. We’re

Consumer lender Home Credit posts 619 million euro first-half loss, says business turned corner

PRAGUE (Reuters) – Consumer lender Home Credit Group posted on Friday a 619 million euro loss for the first half on provisioning to cover loan losses as the coronavirus pandemic hit consumers.

The lender whose operations include China, India and other markets in South-east Asia, Russia or the Czech Republic, said it had shrunk its lending book by 20% in response to the crisis but said business had started recovering.

Vikings Fall After Blowout Home Loss

Things could’ve gone better for the Vikings in Week 1. 

Mike Zimmer’s revamped defense surrendered 43 points and 522 yards to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, and a late surge from the Vikings’ offense wasn’t enough to ever truly threaten a comeback (the 43-34 final score suggests the game was much closer than it really was). This team has more than enough talent to bounce back and go on to a successful season, but they have to make improvements and do so quickly.

After ranking between seventh and 19th in national pre-Week 1 power rankings, let’s take a look at how far the Vikings fell in the ranks this week.

SI.com MMQB: No. 15 (Down 2 spots)

Last week, SI’s six voters ranked the Vikings between No. 6 and No. 19, with an average of 13th. This week, Mitch Goldich handled the power ranks by himself and put the Vikings

Cleveland Indians swept by Minnesota as Twins hitters slug four more home runs in 7-5 loss

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Indians headed out of Minnesota on Sunday bashed and battered after a weekend-long home run assault by Twins hitters that resulted in a three-game sweep. Powered by the long ball, Minnesota rallied from an early three-run deficit in the series finale for a 7-5 win at Target Field.

Cleveland’s losing streak now stands at six games, the most consecutive losses for the club since July 23-28 in 2015.

Despite the loss, the Indians remain in playoff position, occupying the seventh spot in the American League race, one game ahead of the eighth-place Yankees. The Indians fell 3 1/2 games behind Minnesota for second place in the AL Central Division and 4 1/2 games behind the division-leading White Sox.

Minnesota slugged four home runs Sunday, upping their total to 11 in the three-game weekend sweep of Cleveland. All but one of the Twins’ 18 runs scored since
