NFL draft order 2018: Tracking where picks change each week

It’s never too early to think about the 2018 NFL draft — especially if you’re a fan of one of the winless teams in the NFL. After six weeks of the 2017 season, that’s the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers. For now, it’s the Browns that are in line to pick first in April, […]

this is the definition of a bipartisan approach

Jay Cutler escaped the bulk of the permanent wrath of Miami fans last week with that game-winning drive to beat an equally-inept Titans team led by Matt Cassel. The Dolphins now find out whether Chris Foerster, who put the “offensive” in offensive line coach, was integral enough to that unit to cause a drop-off with […]

Penguins follow up White House visit with game vs. Caps

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said earlier Monday that he hadn’t yet discussed Jones’ postgame comments with the owner. “Again, I believe our team believes in the approach that we take in regards to the anthem and showing respect for the flag and for the national anthem prior to the game,” Garrett said.

Week 6 NFL picks against spread: Chiefs outlast Steelers; Patriots outclass Jets

Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season is already here, and things are starting to feel normal, like we actually know how good or bad certain teams are. Just when we start to feel comfortable, however, is when injuries and other adverse developments can shake teams’ identities. This week’s schedule is short on marquee games […]

The turnovers are so uncharacteristic that coach Marvin Lewis wondered if he was hurt.

Miami’s only TD in the first three periods was scored by safety Reshad Jones on a 38-yard fumble return when the other players on both teams apparently thought the play had ended with an incomplete pass. The Titans didn’t chase Jones, and the officials didn’t initially signal a score. The Dolphins won despite totaling just […]

Cutler silences boos with late TD as Dolphins beat Titans

Adam Gase stubbornly stuck with Jay Cutler until his quarterback finally silenced the boobirds. Cutler drew jeers while struggling through much of the Miami Dolphins’ 2017 home debut, but his fourth-quarter touchdown pass helped them overcome another dismal offensive showing Sunday to beat the Tennessee Titans 16-10. The crowd chanted repeatedly for backup quarterback Matt […]

Wentz’s TD pass to Ertz came on third-and-6 to make it 14-0.

The Eagles entered with the NFL’s second-best third-down offense and converted their first four chances, including two of Wentz’s early TDs. We got ourselves into some winnable downs and we weren’t able to get off the field, Peterson said. On the opening drive, Wentz tossed a 12 yard pass to Ertz on third-and-11 and a […]

Illness and injury leave Bucs shorthanded defensively

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without three top names on defense Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Starting defensive tackle Chris Baker and defensive end Jacquies Smith did not make the trip to Minneapolis because of the flu, according to Bucs team officials. Both players missed practice all week due to the bug, which has […]

Touchdown-less Bengals (0-2) fire offensive coordinator

The Bengals, held without a touchdown in their first two regular-season games, fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese on Friday and replaced him with quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor, the team announced. “Ken Zampese has done a tremendous job for us for my 15 years here, and I have the utmost respect for Ken as a person […]
