--In that Chargers-Buffalo game, Bills defensive back Vontae Davis quit on his team at halftime.  With L-A leading 28-6 at the half, Davis said he is retiring and did not come back for the second half. "This isn't how I pictured retiring from the NFL," he wrote on the NFL's Twitter account "But today on the field, reality hit me and hard. I shouldn't be out there anymore." Davis said he meant no disrespect to Bills players and coaches.

--Josh Morrissey is back in Winnipeg. The Jets signed the former PA Raider to a two-year, 6.3 million dollar deal.

--Alex Rodriguez is still hoping for the chance to enter Cooperstown. The former superstar, who now works as a commentator for ESPN, was candid about the possibility of not being elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. A career of controversy, including a long suspension for his role in a performance-enhancing drug scandal, has tainted Rodriguez's otherwise all-time great run in the major leagues.
