Usually touchdowns scored in a football game that's already 34-7 don't get much attention, but one scored by Chief's defensive back Husain Abdullah has done just that. The refs threw a flag because it's illegal for a player to go to their knees to celebrate a score. Today, the NFL issued an apology and said the flag should never have been thrown. Todd Tumminia talked to some local Muslims and will have their reaction to the controversy, coming up on Heartland News at 10.

When "Gone Girl" finally hits theaters later this week, people across the country will see Cape Girardeau on the big screen. Nichole Cartmell caught up with the owner of Arena Golf where on of the scenes was shot. She'll have that story on Heartland News at 9 and 10.
