With the passing of the NBA and NHL trade deadlines, along with the NFL’s new league year, here are ten trades that changed the sports’ landscape.
In true Tom Brady fashion, the New England Patriots staged a historic comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI on Sunday night. Brady led the charge with 466 passing yards and 2 touchdowns, finding an unlikely target in running back James White for 14 receptions.
After a seven-year hiatus, the NFL Pro Bowl skills competition–contested between the best players in the AFC and NFC–returned on Jan. 26 with a new and improved format.
