        TAMPA, Fla. — Make the call. Bend the knee. Open the vault. Do whatever it takes, but for goodness’ sake, find a way to get these crazy kids together again. Promise midweek vacations. Tease with more endorsements. Make it clear that he, alone, can rescue the Bucs. Just find a way to get Rob Gronkowski back in Tom Brady’s huddle. You can see it, right?

        EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said what he said even if he didn’t really mean it the way it was it interpreted.

        N.C. State coach Dave Doeren was asked Monday if the game against Clemson this week would be the biggest in school history.
