Vikings shock Eagles with a 24-14 win

By Andrew Perloff
December 29, 2010


Things we learned from the Vikings' shocking win over the Eagles on Tuesday night ...

1. If a team comes into an NFL game not ready to play, it's going to lose -- no matter how lopsided the matchup looks on paper. The Eagles were still high off last week's win over the Giants and were already game-planning for next Sunday's game against the Cowboys. They didn't think they needed their best effort against a Vikings club that had lost its last two games by a combined score of 61-7 and hadn't beaten a winning team all season.

By Sam Farmer
December 29, 2010


In another testament to how strange this NFL season has been, the most interesting and high-stakes finale is between St. Louis and Seattle.

Both are losing teams.

Sunday's game analysis: Bears feast on Jets, Chiefs in playoffs

By Andrew Perloff
December 27, 2010


Bears 38, Jets 34

If you were willing to overlook New York's 45-3 loss to the Patriots three weeks ago, the Bears put to rest any notion this is the same Jets defense as last season. Jay Cutler recovered from a rough start to throw three touchdowns in the third quarter and Matt Forte ran for 113 yards to help Chicago come a step closer to getting a first-round bye.

Manning's 3 TDs lead Colts past Raiders 31-26

By The Associated Press
December, 27, 2010


Oakland, CA — Peyton Manning put Indianapolis in the lead with his arm and sealed the game with his legs. No matter what happened against the Oakland Raiders , Manning knew he'd need one more big game to get the Colts back into the postseason.

Manning threw three touchdown passes and iced the game with a 27-yard keeper to help the Colts beat the Oakland Raiders 31-26 Sunday in a game that turned out to have little playoff meaning.

Slow, steady paid off for Abraham and Atlanta,
plus 10 things to watch for Sunday


By Peter King
December 24, 2010


The more I learn about Atlanta coach Mike Smith, the more impressed with him I am. When he first got to Atlanta in 2008, Smith saw he had a strong pass-rusher in John Abraham who tailed off late in games and late in seasons. So he instituted a sort of pitch-count plan for Abraham, playing him, at most, about two-thirds of the plays instead of his customary full games. The result: Abraham...

NFLPA too focused on posturing in NFL's CBA battle

Sports business expert Marc Ganis said Thursday that the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) appears more focused on strategies involving legal, political and public relations rather than resolving substantive issues at the collective bargaining table to avoid a lockout in 10 weeks.

Pittsburgh, PA — Sanchez stood up to the pressure created by the Steelers' defense and his team's two-game losing streak, scrambling for the Jets' first offensive touchdown in 12 quarters and leading a decisive field-goal drive as New York beat Pittsburgh 22-17 on Sunday.

Patriots use fourth-quarter rally to put down resilient Packers

By Gary Graves
December 20, 2010


Foxborough, MA — Tom Brady remained interception free and the New England Patriots moved closer to home-field advantage on Sunday night, but only because hefty lineman Dan Connolly was light on his feet while defensive back Kyle Arrington came up light-fingered against the Green Bay Packers.

New England Patriots are the title favorites

By Don Banks
December 13, 2010


Chicago, IL — After this one, you could almost hear the collective uh-oh starting to echo around the rest of the NFL. These Patriots are serious. They're on a mission. And we all know what that means, because it hasn't been all that long since we've seen it before.

The Patriots' 36-7 dismantling of the Bears on a snowy and blustery Sunday at Soldier Field was just New England's latest statement-game win, but they're coming so fast and furious these days that it's starting to resemble one long, continuous speech. Delivered at the top of their lungs.

DeSean Jackson’s big plays lift Eagles over Cowboys 30-27

By Jaime Aron, AP
December 13, 2010


Arlington, TX — DeSean Jackson stopped at the edge of the goal line, turned to face the defense and tipped over backward into the end zone.

No, he wasn’t worn out from running 91 yards. He just wanted to add a finishing splash to this game-changing play.

Jackson’s go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter was among many big plays for him and the Philadelphia Eagles, sending them to a 30-27 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.

New York, NY — The showdown is set, and Rex and the Jets are ready.

Immediately after New York topped Cincinnati 26-10 on Thursday night - with no overtime or last-minute heroics needed this time - the Jets turned their attention to their next opponent.

Yep, those pesky New England Patriots.

Steelers play takeaway in 13-10 victory over the Ravens

By Sam Farmer
December 6, 2010


Baltimore, MD — The Pittsburgh Steelers' locker room was empty but for one last player, safety Troy Polamalu. He walked gingerly from the training room to the showers Sunday night, long after his teammates had dressed and boarded the team bus.

Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin, borderline giddy after the 13-10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens, came looking for him.

5 bold predictions for the final five weeks of the NFL season

By Don Banks
November 30, 2010


With five weeks left in the NFL's regular season, we confidently submit five bold predictions for the rest of the way. Crystal ball time...

1. The San Diego Chargers are running the table. Not only will they continue their late-season surge to a fifth consecutive playoff berth, but also they'll hit the postseason with a nine-game winning streak, an 11-5 record and the franchise's sixth AFC West title in the past seven years. And then they'll lose in the playoffs.

Bryant's 47-yarder leads Falcons over Packers 20-17

By The Associated Press
November 29, 2010


Atlanta, GA — Don't even mention a third straight winning season to the Atlanta Falcons.

Their goals are so much bigger than that.

The Falcons stayed atop the NFC when Matt Bryant kicked a 47-yard field goal with 9 seconds remaining Sunday for a 20-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers , one of the teams trying to chase down Atlanta in the conference standings.

Turnovers help Chargers turn back Colts 36-14

November 29, 2010


Indianapolis, IN — San Diego’s defense gave Peyton Manning another night to forget.

The Chargers picked off the four-time league MVP four times, returning two for scores, as they handed Indianapolis its most lopsided home loss in the Manning era on Sunday night. The last time the Colts lost by this much at home was Sept. 14, 1997, when Seattle won 31-3.

Miami, FL — The Chicago Bears had a ready response for Brandon Marshall's taunting.

Julius Peppers and a swarming defense allowed only 187 yards and a single third-down conversion Thursday night, and the Bears won 16-0 to send the injury-ravaged Miami Dolphins to their second home shutout in 40 years.

Alameda, CA — Even after seven consecutive seasons of at least 11 losses, the Oakland Raiders' multitude of slogans — "Commitment to excellence," "Team of the Decades," "the Silver and Black" — remains a presence at the Oakland Coliseum and the club's practice facility in Alameda.

Patriots knock out Favre, Vikings and grab control of division

By Judy Battista
November 1, 2010


Foxborough, MA. — If that was how it was going to end for Brett Favre, it would have been appropriately dramatic. His chin bloodied, his eyes closed, Favre lay on a cart as it took him in to the locker room for stitches, the quarterback looking more like a punch-drunk boxer than the iron man of the NFL who kept his streak of starts alive Sunday. It is now at 292 straight despite fractures in his left ankle that had turned much of the football universe into amateur orthopedists.

Cowboys' freefall, mistakes haunt Jets

By Andrew Perloff
October 31, 2010


Quick-hitting insights from the slate of 1 p.m. games...

Jaguars 35, Cowboys 17

This was supposed to be the game the Cowboys showed up, even with Jon Kitna filling in for an injured Tony Romo, considering the Jags have been inconsistent and all of Dallas' five losses had come by seven points or less. But the wheels fell off completely against Jacksonville in front of a comatose Cowboy Stadium crowd.

Bad luck or just bad? Cowboys may learn vs. Giants

By Jaime Aron, AP

Arlington, TX — Tony Roma is floating a new theory about what’s wrong with the Dallas Cowboys: They’re not bad, just having bad luck.

Such as five of his seven interceptions being tipped balls. Or some of the costliest of their 49 penalties being borderline calls that went against them.

Not much trash talk between Cowboys, Giants

By Ralph Vacchiano
October 25 2010,


Arlington, TX — There was a noticeable lack of trash talk this week from both sides of this heated rivalry. Of course, the Cowboys couldn't say much while they're struggling at 1-4 and on the brink of losing their grip on the season.

But the Giants didn't say much either about the opponent they love to hate. After all, why risk reviving Dallas by stating the obvious?

Are suspensions the only way to lessen vicious hits in the NFL?

By Dan Wetzel
October 18, 2010


Perhaps the image of Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson needing two people to help him off the field Sunday was enough. Maybe it’s the information that keeps pouring in on the long-term danger of concussions and head injuries.

Or it could just be the realization that fining defensive players for head-to-head hits hasn’t worked as a deterrent.

Do Eagles start Kevin Kolb or Michael Vick?

By Sean Leahy
October 18, 2010


Will the Eagles turn back to Kevin Kolb as starter?

Philadelphia coach Andy Reid calls it a good problem that Kevin Kolb has thrust his way back into the starting QB conversation with strong performances the past two weeks. Publicly, he says that Michael Vick will remain the starter when his rib injury has healed. But Kolb's play the past two weeks -- which includes completing more than 73% of his passes and and a QB rating of 118.7 -- has raised questions about whether he'll give back the job that Vick briefly earned after Kolb's Week 1 concussion.

Dallas and Minnesota spent the week on the brink after their home losses to the Bears and Dolphins last Sunday, but both have reason to exhale after avoiding the mayhem and carnage that would have ensued at 0-3.

Everyone truly has a chance to win every year in the NFC South, where for seven years in a row the last-place team from the year before has made the playoffs the following season, and there has not been a single repeat playoff qualifier yet in the eight-year history of the division (2002-2009).

By Don Banks
August 21, 2010


Minneapolis, MN — Somewhere around the third or fourth time Brad Childress was asked Wednesday about his general level of discomfort in what it took to lure Brett Favre out of his Hattiesburg, Miss., barcalounger and back for another season, the Vikings head coach said a pretty revealing thing.

Miami Dolphins need Marshall’s game, not baggage

By Jason Cole
August 21, 2010


Davie, FL — Welcome to the dichotomy that is the Dolphins, an organization trying desperately to bring excitement back to their fans after suffering the worst decade in team history. This once-proud organization has had three playoff appearances since Dan Marino retired after the 1999 season and those moments were about as raging as the pool at the placid Delano Hotel.

Manning's hit underscores need for NFL's helmetless rule

By Don Banks
August 18, 2010


New Meadowlands Stadium, NJ — When that nasty head gash was opened on one of the NFL's headline players Monday night at New Meadowlands Stadium, the league's ex-VP of officiating, Mike Pereira, instantly realized that the sight of a bloodied Eli Manning was the kind of unfortunate but instructive teaching moment that illustrated why the NFL changed its rule this spring to protect the exposure level of a helmetless ballcarrier.

By Joe Silver
August 18, 2010


East Rutherford, NJ — Of all the indignities the New York Giants’ once-mighty defensive line endured last season, from insult to injury to ineffectiveness, Barry Cofield believes he and his linemates saved the worst for last.

Kolb now starting quarterback for Philadelphia Eagles

By Michael Silver
August 16, 2010


Bethlehem, PA — Kevin Kolb was spending Easter Sunday alone in his Philadelphia-area home, watching a fishing show on his DVR and staring at an uncertain future, when he heard his cell phone ring and saw Eagles coach Andy Reid’s number pop up on the screen.

This is it, the young quarterback thought to himself. Either I just got handed the keys to Andy’s offense, or I might as well call the movers and start packing.

Jets vs. Giants, fun until someone gets hurt

By Toni Monkovic
August 16, 2010


New York, NY — The opening of their stadium for the first NFL game makes Monday night special for the Giants and the Jets.

But in a football sense, despite the talk, this preseason game won’t mean much — unless there’s a serious injury. Fans of both teams know the history.

By Doug Farrar
August 13, 2010


San Francisco, CA — It's not often that a third-round pick retires from the NFL in just his second season, but that's the story of Alabama running back Glen Coffee, who announced Friday that he was leaving the game of football. Coffee explained his decision in a statement released through the team.

Roethlisberger changes hometown after criticism

By Chris Chase
August 13, 2010


Corey Rawson, OH — Ben Roethlisberger is proving that, indeed, you can't go home again.

In the current Pittsburgh Steelers media guide, the embattled quarterback lists his hometown as Corey Rawson, Ohio instead of Findlay, Ohio, the place of his birth and the city he's identified as such during his NFL career. Strangely, Corey Rawson doesn't exist. Roethlisberger may have been referring to his high school, which was named Cory Rawson High School.

Renton, WA – T.J. Houshmandzadeh caught 79 balls last season, but if you’re looking for the moment that encapsulates the high-priced wideout’s first season with the Seattle Seahawks, you should know about a throw he made in the second game of a frustrating campaign.

Vikings' Favre will suit up in ‘10, count on it

By Michael Silver
August 3, 2010


Verizon Vikings Training Camp — Tuesday’s reports of Favre’s retirement notwithstanding, I close my eyes and see the NFL’s most conspicuous Drama Queen suiting up again in purple-and-gold, either for the Minnesota Vikings’ Sept. 9 regular season opener against the Saints at the Superdome (an NFC championship game rematch), or perhaps as late as their Oct. 11 Monday night road matchup with his other former team, the New York Jets.

Jets, Revis in dispute over career security

By Mark Cannizzaro
August 3, 2010


Cortland, NY — The Darrelle Revis saga -- and it has officially morphed into a saga -- is quickly spiraling into a he-said/she-said battle of semantics.

Jets owner Woody Johnson yesterday weighed in on the Revis training-camp holdout for the first time, and insisted the primary issue between the sides is not the fully guaranteed money that Revis is seeking for career security.

By Jason Cole
July 31, 2010


With four prominent players (WR Vincent Jackson, RB Ryan Mathews, LT Marcus McNeill and LB Shawne Merriman) not here, there is a huge question about whether the San Diego Chargers will be competitive. In the past, that may not have been as big an issue because the Chargers of the previous two or three years were loaded with talent throughout the roster.

Strange to see the Panthers without Jake Delhomme and Julius Peppers. If Carolina is going to be a playoff contender, there's no question the two players that need to produce at a big-level are quarterback Matt Moore and defensive end Everette Brown.

NFL POWER RANKINGS

By Don Banks
July 27, 2010


When you do your first set of NFL power rankings as training camps open, the tendency is to make it an exercise in looking backward, at the season that wrapped up almost six months ago. After all, what else do we have to judge by other than the most recent games and results?

By Alan Schwarz
July 24, 2010

The Redskins’ Haynesworth diet plan

By Doug Farrar
July 18, 2010


Well, here's the latest on the ongoing Albert Haynesworth vs. the Washington Redskins saga: Haynesworth personal trainer Tripp Smith says that the defensive lineman has dropped 32 pounds since he started working out with Smith in April. "Albert, he's the type of person that doesn't want to disappoint anybody, but he's very business-minded. I think it has motivated him quite a bit, just seeing what his teammates are saying about him and seeing what everybody in the press is saying about him,"

Biggest problem in 2009: A one-dimensional offense unfit for shootouts

New York Jets first-year head coach Rex Ryan got his team to within 30 minutes of the Super Bowl by playing a type of football that his father, Buddy, would appreciate. Using a brutally effective running game behind a dominant offensive line and the best defense in the NFL, Ryan’s Jets established a tough, swaggering identity that was very old school.

Throwing the Rule Book at the NFL

By The New York Times
July 1, 2010


The National Football League does not condone gambling, but it lost a giant bet this week when the Supreme Court firmly rejected its contention that it is not subject to the nation’s antitrust laws. The court’s unanimous decision sends a conspicuous message to other sports leagues — except Major League Baseball — that when it comes to selling merchandise, charging for parking and paying players, they have to play by the rules.

Boston, MA — Tom Brady is back in Boston this week, participating in offseason training activities for the New England Patriots and preparing for what he hopes will be another Super Bowl run. While most of the region’s sports fans are immersing themselves in the NBA Finals and chanting “Beat L.A.,” New England’s most beloved sports hero will be a fixture at the Pats’ training facility in Foxborough, planning to hang around at least through the team’s June 15-17 minicamp.

New Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is laying down the law at Redskins Park. The traffic law, that is.

Dan Steinberg of the DC Sports Bog writes that parking regulations were among a list of rules Shanahan read to the team during minicamp. Players are not to double park or park their cars in handicapped spaces in the lot at Redskins Park lest they face punishment in the form of extra running at practice.

The Atlanta Falcons went 9-7 last season and didn't make the playoffs. After their surprisingly hot season the year before, this disappointment didn't sit well with the team. To change up their fortune, they've turned to MMA training.

Jay Glazer, a fixture on the fight scene and football reporter for Fox, teamed up with UFC Hall-of-Famer Randy Couture and UFC veteran Frank Trigg to create MMAthletics, a group that helps professional athletes incorporate MMA training. They've worked with individual athletes, but now they're working with the entire Falcons franchise.

McNabb to Redskins trade impacts the rest of the NFL draft

By Peter King

This is what the most interesting trade in the NFL since Eric Dickerson to the Colts in 1987 came down to...

From Washington's perspective, Mike Shanahan looked at Donovan McNabb and saw John Elway. In 1995, Shanahan took the Denver coaching job and inherited a quarterback who couldn't win the big one, who'd gotten stale, who'd lost the faith of the locals in Denver to deliver a Super Bowl.

Van Nuys, CA — The five paper-clipped sheets slipped into a wire basket at the Van Nuys State Office Building, looking no different from the other workers’ compensation claims filed by welders and cashiers.
