49ers End Preseason On Winning Note, Defeat Texans

Originally posted on CBS San Francisco:

HOUSTON (CBS / AP) — Rookie linebacker Chris Borland returned an interception 34 yards for a touchdown, third-string quarterback Josh Johnson threw three TD passes and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Houston Texans 40-13 on Thursday night.

Borland, a third-round draft pick out of Wisconsin, has been trying to move into the rotation to help fill the void left by NaVorro Bowman, who’s expected to miss half the season with a left knee injury.

Colin Kaepernick did not play for the 49ers. Blaine Gabbert played the first half and went 4 for 11 for 60 yards, then Johnson took over.

Houston quarterbacks Case Keenum and Tom Savage both threw interceptions as they compete for the backup job behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Broncos Top Cowboys 27-3 In Preseason Finale

Originally posted on CBS Denver:

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Brock Osweiler is ready for a third season as Peyton Manning’s backup in Denver.

Dallas has to hope Brandon Weeden can be a solid insurance policy with Tony Romo coming off back surgery.

Osweiler led four scoring drives in the final tuneup for another year behind Manning, and the Broncos beat the Cowboys 27-3 Thursday night, sending Dallas to the fifth winless preseason in franchise history.

With Manning and Romo watching in uniform from the sidelines, Osweiler played three efficient quarters, completing nine of 13 for 190 yards without an interception.

Romo’s backup, Weeden, came out before halftime of his second ragged game in four preseason outings. He was 6 of 12 for 75 yards with an interception that set up Denver’s first touchdown.

Extra Public School Funding May Come From Taxpayers

Originally posted on CBS Dallas / Fort Worth:

IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – State district Judge John Dietz of Austin ruled Thursday the state’s funding of public schools is unconstitutional. His ruling states Texas isn’t adequately funding public education or distributing funds evenly among its students.

The ruling will affect how much money is pumped into student’s classrooms. It’s positive news for school districts but the questions remains – will taxpayers foot the bill?

“Hopefully, we’ll get more money from more money coming into the system – and also more of it being distributed to a property poor district,” said Debbie Cabrera with the Irving Independent School District.

She is used to crunching numbers to make the most of a tight budget every year.

“The state has put in less over the course of time,” said Cabrera.

Three years ago, a $12 million dollar cut forced the district to eliminate more than 300 positions and increase class sizes. But…

Charlotte McKinney In A Bubble Bath For Those Of You Stuck At Work On 3rd Shift

Originally posted on Sports Gossip, Sexy WAGs, NFL and Hot Cheerleaders: BustedCoverage:


Charlotte McKinney has now uploaded just six Instagram photos during August and that was after an eight photo month in July. We still barely know anything about the Next Kate Upton as McKinney has just gone about her modeling business without advancing her social career as we thought would happen early this summer.

She has only tweeted (@Char_mck) 16 times since opening a Twitter account in May with this message: “I don’t know how to work this : (”

So you should feel special that Guess Girl posted this bubble bath tonight. It’s rare. I’m not sure whether McKinney is shy or if she’s just not sure how the social scene works in New York, but if she wanted to dominate Page Six, TMZ and every gossip site in the U.S., she could. It’s her call at this point. We’ll just be over here waiting.

RG III, Cousins Sit, Redskins Beat Bucs 24-10

Originally posted on CBS Tampa:

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Kirk Cousins didn’t get a chance to add any fuel to the idea that there is an unlikely quarterback controversy brewing in Washington.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden rested both struggling Robert Griffin III and backup Cousins in Thursday night’s 24-10 preseason-ending victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Third-stringer Colt McCoy played the entire game for Washington (3-1), throwing for 321 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of end-zone interceptions that stopped promising drives.

Ryan Grant scored on a 2-yard reception for the Redskins, and Lache Seastrunk turned a short pass into an 80-yard TD that gave Washington a 17-3 lead in the fourth quarter.

McCoy finished 22 of 29 and was sacked once.

Mike Kafka played most of the game for Tampa Bay, throwing for 86 yards and one TD — a 25-yarder to Solomon Patton in the fourth quarter.

Griffin has labored this preseason as…
