Sports 101: Five lessons from last week

Daniel Murphy of the Mets has homered in six consecutive postseason games. The streak is the longest in major-league history. Here he celebrates after hitting a two-run home run in the eighth inning of Game 4 of the National League Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs, Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015, in Chicago.

In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪ Daniel Murphy of the Mets will not get out-storied by Carlos Beltran of the Astros - or likely anyone else for awhile.

▪ That drawing board the 49ers need to go back to seems to be misplaced.

▪ Lance Austin of Georgia Tech will not get out-storied by Jalen Watts-Jackson of Michigan State.

▪ Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Denny Hamlin treat losing differently.

▪ The Cowboys need Tony Romo more than they need Greg Hardy.
