Washington loses thriller in Detroit, 30-27, as penalty helps foil Alex Smith’s career game

What he experienced a few hours later surely had to come close to the thrill he envisioned. But it again failed to produce the result he wanted.

Washington tied the game at 27-27 to give Detroit 16 seconds to try to win it before the game went into overtime, and the Lions nearly did on a deep pass along the left sideline. Matthew Stafford overthrew Quintez Cephus, just before he was pushed to the ground by Young, who maneuvered his way to the quarterback on a pass rush. The roughing-the-passer penalty gave Detroit a free first down and 15 yards to move Detroit closer to field goal range.

After a quick completion to Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones, Matt Prater nailed the long kick for the win as the clock expired.

The loss is crushing for Washington’s playoff hopes, minimal as they may have been, but it showed the resolve

Virgin Galactic Loses More Money, Plans to Sell More Tickets

Shares of space tourism company Virgin Galactic (NYSE: SPCE) are up a strong 13% since reporting earnings last Thursday. This must mean that the company’s results were great, right?

Virgin Galactic Loses More Money, Plans to Sell More Tickets

Well, no. As my fellow Fool Lou Whiteman pointed out at the time, Virgin Galactic actually fell quite a bit short of even Wall Street’s rather low expectations for Q3. Analysts had forecast that Virgin would lose $0.26 per share. It actually lost $0.34 per share — and reported zero revenue for its second straight quarter.

But if “earnings” aren’t the reason that Virgin Galactic stock is rising after earnings, then what is? Let’s dig into the report and see if we can find out.

Teenager loses college fund over ‘unhinged’ family conflict: ‘That’s unacceptable’

A Reddit user is withholding their niece’s college fund after she tried to steal their dog.

The person went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” and shared the bizarre incident. When the user’s sister and niece found out the poster fed their dog vegan food, the women tried to steal it. 

“I have a college fund set up for my 16-year-old niece, which currently has about $60,000 in it,” the user explained. “My sister (her mom) was visiting the house yesterday with my niece. At one point I was feeding Jupiter, who is my dog. My niece started interrogating me when she saw the bag of dog food and noticed that it was vegan. I do in fact feed him vegan dog food with the full blessing of the veterinarian and under the supervision of a veterinary nutritionist. My sister then joined in on this interrogation, so I just asked

Jaylen Waddle injury: Alabama football loses its brightest star

Good injury luck is a big factor in every football season, and Alabama has gotten none of it the last two.

Last year, the Crimson Tide lost linebacker Dylan Moses before the season and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa during it, with the latter injury contributing directly to an Iron Bowl loss that ended any hope of reaching the College Football Playoff. This year, the injured party is receiver Jaylen Waddle—merely the most explosive player in the college game.

Waddle broke his right ankle being tackled while returning the opening kickoff of Alabama’s 48–17 rout of Tennessee Saturday. You knew the injury was bad right away, when Waddle was taken to the locker room without putting any weight on his leg. Later in the half, he was loaded on an ambulance and left the stadium. Before the second half kickoff, CBS reported that coach Nick Saban said Waddle is done for the
