The Boston Red Sox prepare to face off against the Houston Astros in the American League Divisional round of the MLB playoffs. The Sox look to redeem themselves after being swept in last year's ALDS against the Cleveland Indians.

Tom Brady is leading the NFL in passing yards and hasn't thrown an interception all year. While the team's star is having one of the greatest season starts of his legendary career, the Patriots' defense has them struggling to remain competitive. They look to bounce back from Sunday's loss with a game against the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay tomorrow night.

Team USA looks to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. They are currently tied with Honduras in the CONCACAF standings and will face Panama on Friday.
