It was another wild week in the world of sports -- especially in the NFL, as top teams continue to struggle and players continue their protests against social injustices despite comments from President Trump.

The MLB playoffs also began this week, with the Yankees taking on the Twins in the American League Wild Card game and the Diamondbacks hosting the Rockies in the National League. 

Elsewhere in the world, FC Barcelona played a game before an empty stadium after electing not to allow fans inside as a form of political protest.
