If it wasn’t for a missed extra point, the Eagles would have beaten the Packers, 41-33, on Sunday night, which, of course, was their winning score in Super Bowl LII. While it may be a reach to connect the two games in many ways, the Eagles’ offensive performance against Green Bay brought back memories of the 2017 team that could produce yards and points at will, no more impressive than in that ...

More than a decade has come and gone since he last blasted a shoulder pad into anyone, last crumpled some luckless defender to the floor of an NFL stadium, last carried his helmet into that Hall of Fame sunset. You won't be surprised, but they are still putting Alan Faneca back together again. We were going over his surgeries on the phone the other day from Virginia Beach, where the great ...

LOS ANGELES — He danced. He darted. He dodged. He defied. He defined. During one hot moment on a chilly Saturday night in downtown Los Angeles, this city’s newest sports superstar ran around the Coliseum grass for what seemed like an eternity while avoiding desperate hulks, lunging helmets, flailing arms. Then it happened. Whoa. Wow. Just like that. Just like it previously happened for every ...

Here's a look back at Week 11's action, and fantasy advice for the week ahead: WEEK 11 RECAP Titans 27, Packers 17: Treylon Burks has barely played over half of Tennessee’s snaps, but has still received 14 targets in two games since returning from injured reserve following his foot injury.

Following the Jets' 10-3 loss to the Patriots on Sunday, Wilson failed to take any responsibility for the team’s lack of offensive output in the postgame press conference. Then the next day, Jets coach Robert Saleh said he was considering a change at the starting quarterback position. When the Jets entered the ...

NEW YORK — On Monday, Jets coach Robert Saleh hinted at a quarterback change. Two days later, he made it official during his morning press conference. Mike White will start against the Bears with veteran Joe Flacco as his backup. Not only will Wilson not be under center against Chicago, but he won’t even be active. “Zach’s career here is not over,” Saleh said. “I know that’s going to be the ...

If you hold Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens to 13 points, you really should win the football game. All you need is a halfway decent offense to make that happen. The Carolina Panthers proved again Sunday, however, in a 13-3 road loss to Baltimore that they don’t have one of those — at least not with Baker Mayfield under center. Which brings us to one of the points of this column: It’s ...

CHICAGO — How does a record-setting quarterback who finished his college career with minus-137 rushing yards become the architect of one of the NFL’s most successful ground attacks in decades? The answer, if you ask J.D. Brookhart — the coach at Akron when Luke Getsy set 24 school passing records in 2005-06 — is simpler than you might think. “Luke is the most sensible, pragmatic guy,” ...

LOS ANGELES — Vince Evans remembers the crosstown rivalry for its unrivaled terror. Before the 1976 game, Evans received a letter that contained the N-word with a warning: "If you go out there against UCLA, we're going to blow your brains out." Such was the life of a Black quarterback. "Imagine being a young kid playing under that kind of duress and pressure," Evans remembered. "It was tough." ...

LOS ANGELES — The NFL scouts will arrive at the Rose Bowl on Saturday with their binoculars and notepads at the ready. They will watch from the press box with great interest, not because they're pulling for USC or UCLA but because millions of dollars could be at stake. Both rosters are filled with Saturday players who dream of playing on Sundays, and many of those prospects will wind up in NFL ...
