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.

Bucs Lose Vita Vea For Season

The bad news for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is very, very bad: Defensive lineman Vita Vea is headed to injured reserve, ending what was shaping up as a potential Pro Bowl season. Vea, who is at the heart of a Buccaneers defense that currently ranks fourth overall, second against the rush and seventh in points allowed, suffered what Head Coach Bruce Arians termed a broken leg during Thursday night’s 20-19 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Vea was injured while making a tackle for a loss of one yard on running back David Montgomery on what proved to be Chicago’s game-winning field goal drive in the fourth quarter. That was one of Vea’s three tackles in the game and he also recorded one of Tampa Bay’s three sacks. The Buccaneers held the Bears to 35 rushing yards, marking the third straight game in which they held an opponent below 50 yards

10 Ideas to De-Clutter Your Home Pre-Festive Season

Every year before the festive season arrives, we commit ourselves to deep cleaning our homes. It’s a bittersweet task which includes us sorting through some prized and not so prized possessions. We almost always tend to keep more than we need. The lockdown has made us take a hard look at ourselves and nudged us to question our hoarding patterns- not only to enhance the aesthetics but also to de-clutter our mental space.

Pritika Singh, founder of Mohh, a design-first furnishing venture, said, “De-cluttering is an essential way to prepare and cleanse your home for the upcoming festive season. It’s a two-pronged approach: to identify the items you no longer need/use and procuring fuss-free storage solutions to tidy up all the messy nooks and corners. The simple act of de-cluttering can breathe new life into your home, make it seem more open and even afford you greater mental peace when

‘Dancing with the Stars’ season 29 recap: Anne Heche goes home, Skai Jackson shines

“It’s been a blessing to be on this show,” Heche gushed.

It was a fight to the finish on the ballroom floor as “Dancing with the Stars” whittled the list of competitors down to the top 12 Monday night. Despite a series of breakout performances where a barrage of celebrity dancers finally hit their stride, actress Anne Heche was sent home.

Heche appeared to have an inkling that her “DWTS” journey was about to end, choosing to share her truth on Monday about how she “moved the needle for equal rights forward” when she openly dated Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to 2000.

The 51-year-old “Psycho” star proudly danced the Paso Doble to Katy Perry’s “Rise” and even pulled a Tyra Banks mid-dance by switching up her outfit that paid homage to the

FAU coach Willie Taggart watches his team play Charlotte on Saturday.

Despite having several first-time starters, FAU’s defense was stout and held down the fort for significant stretches of the game after the Owls went scoreless in the first half.

Outside linebacker Leighton McCarthy won Conference USA defensive player of the week Monday after having 10 tackles (five solo), three sacks and a forced fumble against Charlotte. The Owls had six sacks and 12 tackles for losses in the game.

“When I walked into the locker room [at halftime], I heard the defense fired up, and telling the offense ‘we got your back,’ ” Taggart said. “I told the offense we needed to match the defense’s energy

Will Flu Season Help Work From Home Stocks?

The Coronavirus has forced people to increasingly work and learn from home, causing surging demand for connectivity, collaboration, and cybersecurity-related software. Our indicative theme on Work And Learn From Home Stocks is up by 210% year-to-date, compared to the S&P 500 which is up a mere 4%. Most of these stocks have fared well over the last few weeks as well, as investors bet that the fall flu season could see Covid-19 cases rise in the U.S., calling for greater restrictions and stay-home orders.

To be sure, valuations are high for many of these stocks, but it’s quite possible that the pandemic will result in a structural shift of sorts, benefiting these companies in

Tekken 7 Season 4 adding online improvements, cites chat with Smash Bros.’ Sakurai

Tekken 7’s Season 4 is coming later this fall with improvements to online play, new character moves, and the returning Kunimitsu.

The team at Bandai Namco has had a lot to say and a lot to reveal through the weekend’s Tokyo Game Show. Among the items on the agenda is the future of Tekken 7, which has grand plans for its upcoming Season 4 of content. Tekken 7 players have a lot to look forward to, including all-new moves, a new character, and heavily-requested online improvements.

One of Tekken 7’s biggest criticisms to this point has been its netcode. With COVID-19 forcing many people to stay home, good online play will only become more essential going forward. Series Producer Katsuhiro Harada initially became aware of this back when Season 4 was first revealed. Over the weekend, he went into more details on how the Tekken team is looking

Home insurance pitfalls to avoid during hurricane season – Lifestyle – providencejournal.com

For homeowners in coastal states, the 2020 hurricane season could mean financial disaster. Named storms are rolling in at a record pace, with as many as 25 expected in the Atlantic this season — twice the average number. After battering the Louisiana coast in late August, Hurricane Laura alone may account for as much as $12 billion in insured losses.

Even if you think you’re prepared, you may discover that your homeowners insurance doesn’t fully cover damage from a hurricane. To make sure you’re protected, avoid these four costly pitfalls.

Skipping flood insurance

Flood insurance is optional, and only 15% of American households buy it, says Mark Friedlander, spokesperson for the Insurance Information Institute.

But when a hurricane or storm hits, flooding causes more residential losses than high winds, according to a 2019 report from the U.S. Congressional Budget Office. That means most homeowners, even those with hurricane or wind
