BOSTON (CBS) — Sunday was a great day for the Baltimore Ravens, who strengthened their hold on the No. 1 seed in the AFC with a 24-17 win in Buffalo. Add in a Patriots loss to the Chiefs, and the Ravens now own a full game lead over New England in the AFC standings. Barring a three-game collapse against inferior opponents by the Ravens, the road to Super Bowl LIV will go through Baltimore. New England would have to win out and the Ravens would need to lose two of their next three in order for the Patriots to jump back into the No. 1 seed, and the chances of both of those happening are pretty slim. More concerning after Sunday’s loss to Kansas City is that New England’s first-round bye is in jeopardy should they stumble over the next three weeks. The Chiefs are just a game back at the moment, so hanging on to that much-needed bye should be New England’s focus going forward. It’s also remains pretty tight in the AFC East, with the Buffalo Bills just one game … [Read more...] about AFC Playoff Picture: Could Patriots Lose Their First-Round Bye?

Good morning, Bay Area. It’s Monday, Dec. 9, and Francoise Peschon’s approach to her work is why we believe she is the top vintner of 2019. And our region’s housing woes continue to bring attention to themselves in myriad ways. Here’s what you need to know to start your day. ‘Respectful of the classics, but subtly subversive’ Napa Valley is America’s preeminent wine region, but lately that preeminence has looked vulnerable. Wine prices are astronomical, no one but enormous corporations can afford to buy vineyards. Millennials aren’t interested in visiting. Not to mention the ongoing threats of water scarcity, rising temperatures and wildfires. The Napa Valley machine is still running. But within a generation, could it break? In her profile of Francoise Peschon, The Chronicle’s 2019 Winemaker of the Year, Esther Mobley argues the winemaker represents the best chance Napa’s got at remaining vibrant.

(CNN)Saturday night, in one of the year's more deliciously awkward celebrity moments, singer Linda Ronstadt went head to head with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Pompeo's own turf. At a State Department event celebrating the year's Kennedy Center honorees, of which Ronstadt is one, she did away with niceties and politesse and instead told Pompeo, the evening's host and the country's most senior diplomat, exactly what she thought of him, which is not very much. Pompeo never saw it coming — although he set up the jab quite well. During his pre-dinner address, Pompeo referenced Ronstadt's 1975 hit "When Will I Be Loved." … [Read more...] about Linda Ronstadt’s delicious takedown of Mike Pompeo
