NFL football is back! The Middle East could become an even more volatile region if the United Nations general assembly approves a resolution recognizing the state of Palestine with a capital of East Jerusalem.

Two Jewish boys from Montgomery County recently shared the set on SportsCenter. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
