Drake and 21 Savage Grace the Cover of Vogue

Drake and 21 Savage have new music dropping this Friday. However, in advance of their collab album Her Loss, the two are teaming up for the cover of Vogue. The leaked cover shows 21 Savage with his hand in front of his face and Drake looking directly at the camera, both wearing all black, with a quote from 21 Savage that states, “You have to be political.” The album is slated to come out on Friday, Nov. 4 after being pushed back a week after  Noah “40” Shebib got Covid while mixing the final project. It marks the first Vogue cover for both stars.

*Editor’s note (11/2): This was debunked as the cover was part of the elaborate rollout for the album, which also included a fake NPR Tiny Desk Concert and appearance on Howard Stern.

Bill Belichick Cruises to Second Place on All-time Winningest Coach List

Bill Belichick doesn’t care much about records. However, the tight-lipped, six-time Super Bowl champion has accumulated quite a few throughout his legendary coaching career.

With the W, he took sole ownership of second place of the all-time winningest coaches with 325, moving past Bears great George Halas. He is now 22 wins shy of the all-time record, held by Dolphins legend Don Shula

Christian McCaffrey quieted any doubt that a cross-country move may impact his game. The 49ers running back made his presence known on his new team as he became the first player to throw, run, and catch a touchdown since LaDainian Tomlinson posted the trifecta in 2005. The rare accomplishment led the 49ers to victory over the struggling Rams, 31-14.

Tennessee Keeps Climbing, Takes No. 2 Spot Alongside Ohio State in AP Poll

Things are heating up in Knoxville. After a long series of disappointing seasons, second year coach Josh Heupel and the Vols are having a really good time. Tennessee moved into the second spot on the AP Poll, which they share with 8-0 Ohio State. Georgia maintained its sole place in first. Michigan and Clemson round out the top five. This week’s rankings are particularly important as tomorrow debuts the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season.

Lions Unveil Plans to Honor Barry Sanders with New Statue

It is rare these days that a legendary NFL star remains with one team for his entire career. But Barry Sanders was never like everyone else. Now, he’ll be honored for years to come as the team announced that it will erect an eight-foot statue outside of Ford Field, which will be revealed prior to next season. The Lions legend played 10 seasons for the blue and silver, posting 15,269 yards and 99 touchdowns. The team revealed renderings during yesterday’s game against the Dolphins, and the crowd responded with deafening chants of “Barry! Barry!”
