Football: Newsome 57, Leto 8

TAMPA — Leto scored its first points of the season, but the Falcons still fell way short of picking up their first win as Newsome rolled 57-8 Friday night.

The Wolves were spectacular on the ground, rolling up 342 yards rushing and six touchdowns. Conner Powers led the way with 167 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 9.8 yards a carry.

Though Newsome only threw seven times, completing three passes, the Wolves controlled the clock.

Leto's lone score came on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Robinson to David McPherson.

Special teams played a big part in Newsome's victory. Jorge Thompson ran back a 61-yard punt return for a touchdown. And Royce Easley had a 75-yard kickoff return.

  1. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.

  5. 'Hard Knocks' star Riley Bullough still not a lock for Bucs

    Bucs

    TAMPA — Bucs undrafted rookie LB Riley Bullough is perhaps the surprise star of HBO's Hard Knocks and has been productive in two preseason games, but Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said Tuesday that he's caught in a numbers game competing for a backup spot on the Tampa Bay roster.

    Riley Bullough has made a good impression on Hard Knocks and on coach Dirk Koetter, but he isn’t guaranteed a job.
