    COSTA MESA — Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen knows the importance of surpassing Hall of Famer Charlie Joiner for second place on the team’s all-time receptions leaderboard.
    Allen strives to be one of the greatest Chargers of all time, but Monday afternoon wasn’t the time for reflection on his latest accomplishment.

    How is holiday shopping going to look this year? How will brick and mortar stores entice shoppers during the time of COVID-19? And is Black Friday even happening, or what?

    With a bystander pumping on his little chest, 7-year-old Ver’shad Raggins lay dying in August 2019 on the 241 Toll Road, an accident victim desperately in need of air transport to the nearest emergency room.

    Tampa Bay was up 20-17 on Carolina, uncomfortably so, in the third quarter. The Bucs had the ball on their own 2-yard-line. They were coming off a Monday Night embarrassment at the hands of New Orleans.
    “This is the time of the year when good teams take care of business and bad teams tank,” said tight end Rob Gronkowski, who has been in this time of year all his professional life. Tampa Bay has spent 10 seasons in the tank, without a playoff game since 2007.
