Zach Miller has epic touchdown taken away with bogus review after injury
Alvin Kamara continued his red-hot rookie campaign with another touchdown, this one coming from eight yards out to make it 7-0. What seemed to be a touchdown catch for Miller was overturned on the field and ruled an incomplete pass.


Morten stressed that Blizzard isn't adding any secondary currencies or additional microtransactions to StarCraft 2 in order to support the game's new free-to-play model.

Blizzard has been receiving that kind of input from players and partners "almost incidentally since the launch of StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void", the game's second expansion, Morten said. Be aware however that you need to log in and claim it before December 8. Several challenge-mode mini-games will also be included, with focused goals created to ease players into the basics of multiplayer strategies. But Blizzard's generosity doesn't stop there, as everyone will have free access to Unranked and Versus AI modes, and Ranked will be unlocked after 10 First Wins of the Day in Unranked and Versus AI. "With the massive Wings of Liberty single-player campaign, endlessly replayable co-op mode, prestigious ranked ladder, comprehensive map-making tools, and more, StarCraft II now delivers the ultimate real-time strategy experience completely free". Choose from iconic characters like Alarak and Nova who break the rules of StarCraft II and provide gameplay that can suits your style. If you have purchased all three campaigns as of October 31, Blizzard will be sending you an exclusive Ghost skin and three new portraits, as a thank you. This also includes all units from the expansion campaigns.
