Dak Prescott is on a roll leading the Cowboys. Even if he keeps it up, there will be plenty to prove FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott is on one of the best three-game stretches of his career.Even if the star quarterback keeps it up and his Dallas Cowboys keep winning through the rest of November, there will be plenty left to prove.After all, a rematch with the Philadelphia Eagles looms in a difficult December.The Cowboys completed the most lopsided sweep of an NFC East rival in franchise history with a 49-17 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday. The combined margin in two victories over New York was 72 points after a 40-0 win in the opener.It’s the division-leading and defending NFC champion Eagles who are the problem for the Cowboys. Dallas (6-3) trails Philadelphia by two games because of a 28-23 loss two weeks ago.Another second-place finish would mean more road games in January if the Cowboys make the playoffs, and they lost in San Francisco last season, again finishing short of the NFC championship game.It will be tough to catch the Eagles in the division — virtua...

Donald Trump Jr. lauds dad’s real estate exploits as ex-president’s civil fraud trial begins defense NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump Jr. returned to court Monday as something of a character witness for his father’s real estate empire, waxing exuberantly about the former president’s “incredible vision” and portfolio of “great, iconic projects” at the New York civil fraud trial now threatening his company’s future.The namesake son made an encore appearance at the Manhattan trial as defense lawyers started calling their own witnesses. Trump Jr. first testified two weeks ago, called in by New York State Attorney General Letitia James’ office, which is suing the Trump family business. “I’d say it’s good to be here, your honor, but I have a feeling that the attorney general would sue me for perjury if I said that,” he joked Monday before embarking on a detailed and rosy history of the family’s Trump Organization. James, a Democrat, alleges Donald Trump, his company and top executives, including sons Eric and Donald Trump Jr., exaggerated his wealth by billions of dol...

CeeDee Lamb was near NFL receiving history with Cowboys blowing out Giants. Coaches let him get it FRISCO, Texas (AP) — CeeDee Lamb’s chance at making NFL receiving history was news to Dallas offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer when the Cowboys were blowing out the New York Giants in the fourth quarter.The coaching staff was sorting through lineup changes with a five-touchdown lead in Dallas’ 49-17 victory Sunday when Schottenheimer got word that Lamb needed one catch and 8 yards receiving to become the first in league history with at least 10 catches and 150 yards in three consecutive games.Cooper Rush already had replaced star quarterback Dak Prescott, and the coaches weren’t going to reverse that move.But Schottenheimer went to coach Mike McCarthy to see if he wanted to give Lamb a shot at an NFL first.“That’s got to come from the head coach,” Schottenheimer said Monday. “And he’s like, ‘Let’s do it.’”The Cowboys made sure Rush was aware, and his first two plays were throws of 5 yards and 4 yards to Lamb, who finished with 11 catches ...

4 things we learned as the Craig Counsell era began for the Chicago Cubs, including hiring a coaching staff and the impact on free agency A grin broke across Craig Counsell’s face while putting on his pinstriped Chicago Cubs home jersey for the first time.“It feels good,” Counsell said Monday at Wrigley Field.The Counsell era is officially underway for the Cubs, who closed the book on David Ross’ tenure. Ross texted Counsell before the news broke last week of Counsell’s five-year, $40 million deal, prompting Counsell to immediately call Ross.“I’ve always had great respect for David,” Counsell said. “That gave me the ultimate respect for David the way he handled the conversation. Part of this business is really difficult, it’s really cutthroat. And as a player I’ve lived it, David’s lived it, every player lives it every day. But I respect the heck out of David Ross.”Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts spoke to Ross on Nov. 6 after President Jed Hoyer delivered the news at Ross’ home in Tallahassee, Fla.“These decisions aren’t ever ea...

Andover teachers strike: Massachusetts judge orders $50,000 fine for educator union; Andover Public Schools battles union on social media The Andover teachers union is facing a $50,000 fine for continuing its strike while classrooms remain empty, as the school district on Monday started to go after the educator union on social media to “clear up inaccurate information.”An Essex Superior Court judge has ordered that the Andover Education Association pay a $50,000 fine to the state for failing to end its strike by Monday evening. In Massachusetts, teachers strikes are illegal.If the Andover teachers continue to strike after 3 p.m. on Tuesday, the union will pay an additional $60,000 fine. The next fine would be $70,000 if the union keeps striking after 3 p.m. on Wednesday — for a total fine of $180,000 after three days. The fine would keep going up $10,000 each day until the strike ends.“These fines will completely deplete the AEA’s cash reserves, which are built through membership dues,” the Andover Education Association posted on Facebook. “However, we anticipated these fines....
