HANGING ON BY A LEG September 9, 2019 • Oakland, California Raiders safety Lamarcus Joyner got just enough of Broncos wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton to hold him to a seven-yard gain in the second quarter of the teams’ Week 1 matchup. Joyner was second on the team in tackles, with six, as Oakland held Denver to 334 yards and won 24–16. ON THE EDGE OF GLORY September 7, 2019 • Salt Lake City, Utah Japan’s 17-year-old Mami Tezuka, the 10th-ranked female teen in the world, did a 50-50 grind on the wall en route to a third-place finish at the Vans Park Series world championships.

why risk a comeback?

SOME FORMER ATHLETES are more retired than others. Michael Jordan retired for the first time in 1993 and played baseball, unretired 17 months later, re-retired in 1999, then came back to the NBA again in 2001 to play for the Wizards—a team he managed and had partly owned. Brett Favre hung up his pads as a lifelong Packer in March 2008, changed his mind four months later, then stuck around for three more seasons on other teams. Marshawn Lynch, Michael Phelps, and Jason Witten are all recent examples of stars who were drawn back to the bright lights. Add Kim Clijsters, who plans to play in 2020, to that list. You might not even know who Clijsters is, as she retired from tennis in 2012. But like Jordan, her comeback is made less…

WOW FACTOR In Week 4 of the college football season, these teams used trick plays to stump their opponents—and win big. TULANE Vs. HOUSTON “Knee” With the score tied and 18 seconds left, Tulane lined up to take a knee. That’s what Houston thought, at least. QB Justin McMillan (above) deserved an Oscar nomination for best actor, handing the ball off without the D noticing. First down, Green Wave! One play later, McMillan threw a 53-yard TD pass. TEXAS Vs. OKLAHOMA STATE “Reverse flea-flicker” Trailing OSU 23–21 in the third quarter, UT used a fast-paced play that ended when Cade Brewer (above), the fourth Longhorn to touch the ball, scored. PITTSBURGH Vs. UCF “Pitt Special” QB Kenny Pickett (8) channeled his inner Nick Foles with Pitt’s version of the Eagles’ famed Philly Special play. Pickett’s TD catch snapped UCF’s 27-game…

On July 1, while most rising 10th-graders were in the middle of summer vacation, 15-year-old Cori Gauff was beating former world No. 1 Venus Williams in the first round at Wimbledon. It was only the start of the teenager’s historic summer. From there, the youngest player to qualify for that Grand Slam in the Open era won two more matches at the tournament. By the time she lost to seventh-seeded Simona Halep in the round of 16, Gauff, who goes by Coco, had gained a worldwide fan base. She followed her breakout performance in England with an appearance at the Citi Open in Washington, D.C. Although she didn’t progress far in the singles bracket, she cemented her status as a rising star by winning the doubles tournament with 17-year-old Caty McNally. The…
