October 11th, 2021 was highlighted by Lamar Jackson’s all-time performance to spark an unprecedented comeback in Indianapolis as he set NFL records en route to handing the Colts their first loss when leading by 16+ points in the 4th Qtr since moving to Indy. The Boston Red Sox walked off the Rays again, this time to clinch their spot in the ALCS while Jon Gruden shockingly resigned after disrespectful comments were revealed from old emails. Evan Longoria & Joc Pederson provided the only Runs in their team’s NLDS Game 3 Wins. 

See what happened in sports on October 11th last year, headlined by LeBron James winning his fourth career NBA Championship and first with the Los Angeles Lakers plus Tampa Bay beat Houston in ALCS Game 1, and the Raiders upset the Chiefs during NFL Sunday Week 5 as well as what happened in sports on October 11th, 2019 ft. Anibal Sanchez‘s near no-hitter in NLCS Game 1. 

WHAT HAPPENED IN SPORTS OVERVIEW: This daily sports post includes real headlines only (no clickbait rumors), all of the best highlights, interesting facts from around the NFL, NBA, & MLB, the main games to watch, notable birthdays, and a quick recap of significant events on this day in sports history.

October 8th, 2021 was highlighted by the Red Sox’s remarkable win over the Rays where they set MLB and franchise postseason records thanks to their dominant offensive display. Every other division series had a game on Friday as well with the Astros’ 7th inning avalanche leading to a 2-0 series lead over Chicago. Logan Webb’s outstanding postseason debut along with Buster Posey’s big night helped the Giants take a 1-0 lead over LAD and Rowdy Tellez’s GW-HR lifted Milwaukee over the Braves in Game 1. 

See what happened in sports on October 8th last year, headlined by Nick Foles‘ Bears taking down Tom Brady‘s Bucs as TB12 seemingly forgot it was fourth down after the game-sealing turnover on downs and the Astros, Dodgers, and Braves all clinching a spot in the Championship Series as well as what happened in sports on October 8th, 2019 ft. the Rays running a hot Justin Verlander out of town thanks to an outstanding offensive output. 

WHAT HAPPENED IN SPORTS OVERVIEW: This daily sports post includes real headlines only (no clickbait rumors), all of the best highlights, interesting facts from around the NFL, NBA, & MLB, the main games to watch, notable birthdays, and a quick recap of significant events on this day in sports history.
