The report stated that the deal was signed “months ago,” but was not immediately disclosed. Caldwell, who has coached the Lions since 2014, […]

Cousins believes proper execution will overcome it.

“We were trying to leave enough time where if he made it, we could run another play. [Chargers quarterback] Philip [Rivers] was stopping all those guys trying to run off the field. He was going to clock it with two seconds left. We tried to call it with 12 seconds left, we got 10. So […]

The 6 best moments from the NFL’s Week 2 action

Sam Bradford was inactive for the Vikings’ game against the Steelers on Sunday. They were stuck with Case Keenum, who threw for just 167 yards in a 26-9 loss. When asked about Bradford after the game, Zimmer said he was “fine” while offering a wide range of dates for him to return: “Sam is fine. […]

It’s difficult for any quarterback to succeed if he takes six sacks in one half.

In last year’s NFC Championship Game, the Falcons’ league-best offense blew the doors off the Packers’ defense and sent Atlanta to the Super Bowl, 44-21. That was the last Falcons game ever at the Georgia Dome, the team’s home since 1992. The story was similar enough on Sunday, with Matt Ryan’s offense racking up 6.3 […]

Sergio Dipp’s ESPN job appears safe after viral moment on ‘Monday Night Football’

As a minority himself, the Mexico native said he was trying to show “respect” to the African-American head coaches on the sidelines, Vance Joseph of the Broncos and Anthony Lynn of the Chargers.

Saints’ injured offensive line stifling exciting RB trio

When the Saints marched into Minnesota Monday night, all eyes were on the exciting running back trio of Mark Ingram, Adrian Peterson and Alvin Kamara. Peterson, especially, garnered attention because he was returning to the team that had dropped him after accumulating a Hall of Fame career. But it became evident early that the talented […]

I’m excited to get started on another season of daily fantasy football

My projections for the rest of the AFC North are inflated by across-the-board sweeps of the Browns, on the theory that if DeShone Kizer does ultimately elevate Cleveland, it probably won’t be as a rookie still finding his way. As things stand, I have Cleveland beating teams with Josh McCown and Blake Bortles behind center. […]

I like the Vikings’ rookie to make a big splash en route to a possible Rookie of the Year campaign.

How much do you really know about Henne? Probably not much! A career as a backup QB for two of Florida’s most hapless NFL franchises has a way of putting a person in the shadows. Struggling to find their way back from the glory days of the Jay Fielder era, Miami pinned its hope on […]

Patriots reward fan who found Tom Brady’s missing jerseys with front row seats to season opener

The Patriots didn’t hold back when it came time to reward the man who helped find Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey.
