RG3 will not be the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins in the 2015 NFL season.

Washington head coach Jay Gruden made the announcement earlier today stating that “Kirk Cousins has earned the right to be the starting quarterback in 2015.”

The moves comes as a bit of a surprise, as the Redskins staff had named Robert Griffin the teams starting pivot earlier this offseason.

Regardless, it is clear that Washington is moving forward with Cousins:

“Kirk has done an outstanding job,” said Gruden. “Robert has done some great things no question, we have total faith in all three QB’s. But moving forward, with all the things we’ve studied over the course of training camp and OTA’s, we just feel Kirk is the best man for the job.”

Jay Gruden insisted that naming Cousins the starter had nothing to do with RG3’s recent concussion and that Washington had no plans of dealing or cutting their former #1 pick (RG3).

Bills name Tyrod Taylor as starting quarterback!

Rex Ryan has finally made his quarterback-decision and announced that Tyrod Taylor will be leading the Buffalo Bills under center in Week 1.

Tyrod Taylor was clearly the most consistent quarterback for the Bills during the preseason.

The 26-year-old spent his first four seasons in Baltimore backing-up Ravens starting signal caller Joe Flacco.

Taylor completed 24 of 31 passes during this 2015 preseason and also ran for 108 yards and a touchdown.

With Taylor being named the teams starting QB, it seems like only a matter of time before Buffalo releases one of their other quarterbacks, E.J. Manuel or Matt Cassel.

The Buffalo Bills will play the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 of the 2015 NFL regular season.

Shortly after news broke that Robbie Lawler had suffered a thumb injury which would force him out of his UFC 193 headlining bout with Carlos Condit, UFC president Dana White took to ESPN’s Sports Center to announce that a women’s bantamweight championship fight between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm would now headline the November event (UFC 193).

Ronda Rousey (12-0 MMA) is coming off a first-round knockout victory over the previously undefeated Bethe Correia, which took place in the headlining bout of this month’s UFC 190 event. “Rowdy” has now won her last three fights in an astonishing combined time of 64-seconds. The only opponent to ever get out of the first-round with Ronda Rousey was the aforementioned Miesha Tate, who suffered a third-round submission loss to “Rowdy” in the pairs second encounter at UFC 168.

Rousey now meets former Boxing world champion Holly Holm (9-0 MMA), who has gone 2-0 since joining the UFC ranks. “The Preacher’s Daughter” was last seen in action at July’s UFC Fight Night 71 event, where she earned a unanimous decision victory over Marion Reneau. Six of Holm’s nine career mixed martial arts victories have come by way of knockout.

UFC 193 goes down November 15 live from Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
