How to Make NFL Preseason More Exciting

After a rousing few weeks, the 2016 Summer Olympics came to an end on Sunday, but not after gracing us with a few final events including boxing, diving and rhythmic gymnastics. The United States finished the games with a total of 121 medals -- 46 of which were gold.

Elsewhere in the world of sports, we watched another week of preseason football games as we prepare for the return of the NFL.

In baseball, major league teams are continuing to scratch and claw their way towards the postseason, and teams from around the globe are competing in the Little League World Series.

Check out the slideshow below to see the best shots from all of these events and more, and be sure to check back next weekend to see our selection of the best photos from the week in sports.
