WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Sept. 24, 2020

Starting off 0-2 is no way for a NFL team to get through a season if it intends to make the playoffs. For WISE Sports Radio‘s NFL segment, we picked the teams that can possibly turn their season around and those that are riding the downward spiral.

Also among our topics were Mike Gore’s Buffalo Bills, off to a 2-0 start with Josh Allen putting up huge passing numbers in his first two games. Is the artificial turf at MetLife Stadium dangerous for NFL players? And should Justin Herbert be the Los Angeles Chargers’ starting quarterback?

WISE Sports Radio MLB update: July 27, 2020

Playing a Major League Baseball season amid the COVID-19 pandemic was always going to be risky. Yet it only took four days for the virus to break out among one MLB team, causing the postponement of two games and maybe more to come.

Naturally, the COVID-19 outbreak among the Miami Marlins was the main topic on WISE Sports Radio‘s baseball segment. Eleven players and two coaches tested positive for the virus a day after the Marlins played the Philadelphia Phillies. Should that game have been played on Sunday? Can MLB really expect to play a season?
