49ers vs. Bills live score, updates, highlights from NFL 'Monday Night Football' game

The 49ers (5-6) still have a path to the NFL playoffs, but they’ll need a win Monday night against a tough Bills team to keep their pursuit of that destination realistic.

It’s a testament to San Francisco’s coaching staff that the team remains in the hunt without first-choice quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle), star tight end George Kittle (foot) and second-year defensive end Nick Bosa (ACL). Kyle Shanahan’s staff has maintained an above-average defense and kept its Nick Mullens-led offense from complete self-destruction. Last weekend, the team beat the division rival Rams.

But the Bills (8-3) hold one of the most comprehensive set of scoring threats the 49ers will encounter through the remainder of the season. Josh Allen’s dual-threat ability and connection with offseason acquisition Stefon Diggs could threaten to turn Monday’s contest into a shootout San Francisco can’t handle.

Auburn’s Sharife Cooper continues incredible college start with first-half double-double vs. South Carolina

Auburn's Sharife Cooper continues incredible college start with first-half double-double vs. South Carolina

He has only played in five games this season, but Auburn guard Sharife Cooper is making a strong case as the top freshman in college basketball for the 2020-21 season.

Cooper, a five-star recruit in the class of 2020 and its No. 24 overall player, missed the Tigers’ first 12 games — and 78 practices — as the NCAA investigated his eligibility. He was declared eligible on Jan. 9, the same day Auburn played rival Alabama. Cooper suited up for the first time this season and, despite playing in a losing effort, immediately showed why he was a consensus top-25 player among recruiting boards.

Cooper shot 8 of 19 from the field (42.1 percent) for 26 points, adding nine assists, four rebounds and three steals in the loss. And he hasn’t slowed down since.

For the season, Cooper has averaged 22.5 points, 8.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. He has scored in the double digits in all five contests, including three games in which he scored at least 25 points. He also has two double-doubles, against Georgia and South Carolina. Auburn is 3-2 since Cooper began playing.

Cooper’s latest performance came in Saturday’s 109-86 win against the Gamecocks, against whom he shot 4 of 10 from the field (2 of 3 from 3-point range), earning 16 points, 12 assists and six rebounds. He had earned his double-double at halftime, dropping 10 points and 11 assists.

Auburn has nothing to play for in the way of postseason tournaments; the team announced a self-imposed postseason ban on Nov. 22 as part of bribery charges brought against former basketball assistant Chuck Person. Were it eligible, however, it’s possible Cooper could help lead the team (9-7, 3-5 SEC) back into NCAA Tournament contention.

Even so, the Tigers are still a team worth watching — if for no other reason than Cooper’s incredible play.

What channel is Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 2 on tonight? How to watch, buy UFC 257 on pay-per-view

What channel is Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 2 on tonight? How to watch, buy UFC 257 on pay-per-view

Conor McGregor is coming out of retirement (again) to face off against Dustin Poirier (again) at UFC 257.

McGregor (22-4) first met Poirier (26-6-1) in the Octagon in 2014, securing a first-round TKO to improve his record to 16-2 at the time. That said, this will be McGregor’s first fight in over a year after securing a TKO victory over Donald Cerrone on Jan. 18, 2020. Prior to that, his last UFC match came two years earlier: a defeat via submission to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018. Will that relative time off have any effect on the fight?

Poirier has been slightly more active recently, going 2-1 in his last three fights in 2019 and ’20. Curiously, his only loss — and second-to-last fight — was also a defeat to Nurmagomedov, also via submission.

Speaking of which: There’s a slim chance Nurmagomedov could come out of retirement if he sees “something spectacular” out of McGregor or Poirier in their rematch. Something to consider as the fighters face off for the second time in the Octagon.

In all, 11 fights will take place before McGregor and Poirier face off in their rematch. With that, here’s everything you need to know to watch McGregor vs. Poirier 2, as well as the rest of the UFC 257 card:

What channel is UFC 257 on tonight?

What time does Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier 2 start?

With that in mind, it’s likely the two won’t begin their rematch till midnight or later.
