    Both the New Orleans Saints and the Carolina Panthers suffered painful, last-minute defeats on Sunday, but neither has time to dwell as they meet on Thursday night. Pepe Jersey . The Saints scored a last-minute touchdown to draw level with the Denver Broncos, with just the extra point needed to take the lead. However, the kick was blocked and Will Parks ran the ball 85 yards for a two point score, securing Denvers 25-23 win.  After Brandin Cooks 32 yard touchdown, Will Parks stole the game for Denver with a two point defensive score Carolina led Kansas City 17-3 going into the fourth quarter but the Chiefs rallied late, and Eric Berrys 42-yard interception return TD set up an opportunity for Cairo Santos to score a 38-yard field goal as time expired to complete a 20-17 comeback win.  The teams met last in week six, where Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw for almost 500 yards as New Orleans top ranked offence ran riot in a 41-38 home win. The Atlanta Falcons loss to Philadelphia on Sunday means that the NFC South is still in the balance, and both the Saints and Panthers are clinging on to hopes of a play-off appearance. A divisional loss for either side would almost certainly end those hopes. Join our studio audience for Thanksgiving! Sky Sports is opening its doors for a live Thanksgiving show on Thursday, November 24. After an 0-3 start it has been steady improvement from New Orleans (4-5), who sit just two games behind the divisional leading Falcons. The defence put up its best performance this season against the Broncos, and defensive end Cameron Jordan will view this game as an opportunity to add to his four sacks so far. Wide receiver Brandin Cooks will look to build on his 98 yards in week 10, which included a 32-yard touchdown under pressure. Rookie Michael Thomas has impressed with five scores so far this year, and it will be up to Brees to utilise him and Cooks, to move the offence downfield. Brandin Cooks added a touchdown to a 98 yard performance against Denver It has been a frustrating season for Carolina (3-6), who opened with four losses in their first five weeks. A two game winning streak was snapped by the Chiefs in week 10, and they must get back to winning ways against the Saints to have any chance of progressing to the post season.The Panthers defence is much improved since losing to New Orleans, and Brees and co. should face a tougher test this time around, away from the Superdome. Though they still rank 23rd in pass defence, the Panthers are beginning to show last years form, having registered 15 sacks in the last three games.  Despite complaints of a lack of protection, Cam Newton has looked more confident in recent weeks and will be crucial for the Panthers slim play-off hopes This is a huge game for both teams, but it is Carolinas to lose. Cam Newton looks to be getting back to MVP form, and the defence is growing in confidence after a shaky start. But if theres a quarterback to pile on the pressure and expose a teams frailties, it will be Brees. You can watch the Saints @ Panthers on Friday November 18 from 12:30am live on Sky Sports 1.

Mateo Kovacic Real Madrid Jersey . -- Michigan coach John Beilein is willing to give Nik Stauskas a little leeway when it comes to shot selection. LONDON -- A decade after kicking a boot at David Beckhams head, Alex Ferguson used his autobiography to criticize the stars apparent pre-occupation with fame. At Manchester United, Ferguson developed Beckham into one of the worlds most recognizable sportsmen, but the midfielder left United in 2003 for Real Madrid under a cloud after his relationship with the manager broke down. "David was the only player I managed who chose to be famous, who made it his mission to be known outside the game," the 71-year-old Ferguson wrote in his autobiography, which will be released on Thursday. "I felt uncomfortable with the celebrity aspect of his life." By moving to the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007 after four years at Madrid, Ferguson said Beckham "surrendered a part of his career." In the 2002-03 season, Ferguson had concerns that Beckhams "application level had dropped" and his "work-rate was dropping." There was no way back after the February 2003 match against Arsenal. Ferguson was unhappy that Beckham neglected to track back when Arsenal scored its second goal in a 2-0 win. "As usual, with David at that time, he was dismissive of my criticism," Ferguson wrote. "Its possible that he was starting to think he was no longer needed to track back and chase." In the dressing room, Ferguson recalls Beckham swearing nearby before the boot flew. "I moved towards him, and as I approached I kicked a boot. It hit him right above the eye," Ferguson recalled. "Of course he rose to have a go at me and the players stopped him." After that, Ferguson told the board that Beckham had to leave. "The big problem for me -- and Im a football man -- he fell in love with (former Spice Girl) Victoria and that changed everything," Ferguson said Tuesday at his book launch. In the book, Ferguson detailed Beckhams insubordination, despairing when he refused to remove a beanie hat at a team dinner. By that time, Ferguson said, Beckham had been "swallowed up" by publicity agents. "David thought he was bigger than Alex Ferguson," Ferguson wrote. "You cannot have a player taking over the dressing room. Many tried. ... The focus of authority at Manchester United is the managers office. That was the death knell for him." Beckham was sold to Real Madrid in 2003, and made the surprise move away from Europe to the Los Angeles Galaxy. "I imagine he also had his eyes on Hollywood and the impact it would have on the next phase of his career," Ferguson wrote. "There was no footballing reason to go to America." Beckham ended his stint in LA last year, then spent five months at Paris Saint-Germain before retiring. "He is an icon to every kid in the world," Ferguson said Tuesday, stressing that he admired Beckham. Ferguson retired in May after winning his 13th Premier League title, bringing an end to the most successful managerial ccareer in British football history. Sergio Ramos Jersey. Among the 38 trophies won between 1986 and 2013 were two Champions League titles. Here are other highlights from Fergusons new autobiography, following up the first published in 1999. ------ WAYNE ROONEY The final days of Fergusons reign were overshadowed by Rooney asking to leave United due to his lack of playing time. The transfer request was refused by successor David Moyes. Rooney, who joined United from Everton in 2004, first stunned Ferguson in 2010 by asking to leave, complaining about the apparent lack of stars in the team. In the book, Ferguson recalled Rooney telling him United should have signed Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil in 2010 before he joined Real Madrid from Werder Bremen. "My reply was that it was none of his business who we should have gone for," Ferguson wrote. Ferguson told reporters on Tuesday that Ozil, who joined Arsenal in September, was "not on our radar" in 2010. As for Rooney, Ferguson, who remains at United as a director, is delighted with how the striker has performed this season. "Do you think I would drop Wayne Rooney if he was playing the way he is now? Absolutely no way," Ferguson said at the Institute of Directors in London. ------ ENGLAND JOB As a Scotsman who briefly coached his country at the 1986 World Cup, Ferguson was never going to take charge of rival England. The English Football Association tried -- twice. First, in 1999 before Kevin Keegan took charge, and again the following year before Sven-Goran Eriksson was hired. "It wasnt a bed of nails I was ever tempted to lie on," Ferguson wrote. Later on, Ferguson was irritated by Englands medical staff turning up at Uniteds training ground to check on players. "Often I felt that this was an insult to us," Ferguson wrote. "I wondered whether my Scottishness was a factor, a reason not to trust me." ------ ROY KEANE In the book Ferguson criticizes the "savage tongue" of former captain Roy Keane, who was forced out of United in 2005 after the Irishmans rant against his teammates and assistant coach Carlos Queiroz on Uniteds television channel. The interview has never been aired. "I just couldnt lose my control in this situation," Ferguson said Tuesday. "If I had let it pass and allowed it to happen the players would have viewed me differently ... throughout my career I have been strong enough to deal with important issues like that. Roy overstepped his mark. There was no other thing we could do." Keane accused Ferguson of bringing his dispute with shareholder John Magnier over a racehorse into the club. The legal battle before the club was sold to the Glazer family in 2005 is one issue Ferguson doesnt go into detail on in his memoirs. Similarly, Ferguson only has praise for the American owners despite fans criticizing the cost of servicing the debt resulting from their leveraged takeover.
