      The Vikings took a 20-6 lead into halftime on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium, and with the second-half kickoff coming their way, they seemed in position to pull away from the Jets and get their first comfortable victory since Week 1 against the Packers. They ended the day doing everything they could to contain a frantic Jets rally in a 27-22 win, holding New York to 10 points on four ...

        Two weeks ago, following the Jets’ 10-3 loss against the Patriots, Jets coach Robert Saleh declined to commit to Zach Wilson as the starting quarterback. Days later, Saleh benched Wilson for backup quarterback Mike White. On Wednesday, Saleh had an opportunity to declare White the starter moving forward, but he declined to do so as he continued to say the intent is to get Wilson back on the ...

          The Carolina Panthers and Baker Mayfield got a quickie divorce Monday. The marriage lasted only five months, which was time for Mayfield and the Panthers to progress through an extremely brief honeymoon phase (training camp) to their first spat (a Week 1 loss) to more serious problems (Mayfield’s ankle injury) to irreconcilable differences (Mayfield’s 1-5 record as a Panther starter). By ...

          ROSHARON, Texas — On the very first two Carolina Panthers teams, in 1995 and 1996, Lamar Lathon was my favorite defensive player to watch. Sam Mills was steadier. Kevin Greene, once he got there in 1996, was a purer pass rusher. Those two both ended up as Pro Football Hall of Famers. But Lathon? He was more explosive than either of them. My gosh, what a player. A 6-foot-3, 265-pound Adonis of ...

          DENVER — Colorado football is ready to go Prime Time again.

          ALLEN PARK, Mich. — After the Lions suggested it would be a long shot for rookie receiver Jameson Williams or defensive end Romeo Okwara to see the field this Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team has activated both players off the injured list a day ahead of the matchup. That paves the way for Williams to make his season debut, nearly 11 months after he tore his ACL in the College ...

          Devising the perfect Daily Fantasy Sports strategy for the NFL can be a challenge, which is why I'm here to assist. On DraftKings, it's important to remember you're playing full-point PPR with bonuses if a player surpasses 300 passing yards, 100 rushing yards or 100 receiving yards. Here is my optimal lineup for Sunday's $3 million Fantasy Football Millionaire contest, but can be utilized as a ...

          DENVER — A contract for a new Colorado football coach — who’s expected to be NFL icon Deion Sanders — is now officially up for discussion by the Board of Regents on Sunday morning. The board announced Saturday that it has scheduled a special meeting for 10 a.m. Sunday to discuss, according to the public agenda, a “Personnel matter at CU-Boulder — athletics.” The announcement confirms that the ...

          KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The week begins with some film of the most recently played game, and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes often embarks on that process on the flight home. It allows him to more quickly move to tape of the upcoming opponent, which amounts to a collection of five or six relevant games. If that includes a recent matchup with the Chiefs, hey, even better. Usually. On occasion, ...

          There are a lot of important NFL games this weekend, with the season winding down and the playoff races starting to shape up. This time of year seems to be when the games become more interesting, as there is far more of a sense of urgency. The one game that is rather meaningless in the grand scheme of things is Browns-Texans, as neither team is in the playoff hunt. I guess I should qualify ...

          CHICAGO — Perhaps it would be in the Green Bay Packers’ best interest to put their four-time MVP quarterback on the shelf for the rest of 2022, to let Aaron Rodgers rest his battered ribs and take care of his broken right thumb. The Packers then could take a longer look at young Jordan Love and begin to make a more informed evaluation of their possible quarterback succession plan. Always good ...

          PHILADELPHIA — On the night of April 28, moments after he heard about his trade from the Tennessee Titans to the Eagles, star wide receiver A.J. Brown hit the football field and went through what he described as one of the “most intense workouts of his life.” “I thought, ‘If they’re going to trade me, it’s going to be one of the biggest mistakes they’re ever going to make,’ ” Brown recalled. ...

          PITTSBURGH — When Ben Roethlisberger retired after 18 seasons, it did more than bring to an end the longest chapter of one of the greatest players in Steelers history. It created what quietly was a landmark moment for the franchise. For the first time since even before Terry Bradshaw was drafted in 1970, the Steelers entered the 2022 season with two quarterbacks at the top of their depth chart ...
