  • NFL's modern-day gladiators pay the price as the crowd roars

    NFL's modern-day gladiators pay the price as the crowd roars
    On a cloudless, gentle Sunday afternoon in America's newest football palace, fans gathered on a patio behind the San Francisco 49ers bench to compare jewelry and sip margaritas. Ten yards away, helmets collided with a sickening thwack and a giant body...
  • New England Patriots will steal Super Bowl XLIX

    New England Patriots will steal Super Bowl XLIX
    Football pumps will cringe in fear. Ragged hoodies will run and hide. "Cheaters" can start making plans for an Emmy. I hate writing this as much as I hate Tom Brady's smug grin under that silly ski cap, but I have no choice. Super Bowl XLIX —...
  • NFL Week 13: Philip Rivers helps Left Coast get it right in Baltimore

    NFL Week 13: Philip Rivers helps Left Coast get it right in Baltimore
    On a Sunday when Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady squared off for the first time in their illustrious NFL careers, and Johnny Manziel scored for the first time in his less-than-illustrious rookie season, it was another first that kept the San Diego Chargers in...
  • Carson Palmer out for year, but Arizona's season a long way from over

    Carson Palmer out for year, but Arizona's season a long way from over
    Carson Palmer didn't need an X-ray or an MRI exam. The Arizona Cardinals quarterback knew as he writhed on the turf that the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee was shot. He said as much Monday, still coming to grips with the fact he's done...
  • NFL Week 10: Arizona Cardinals are 8-1, but Carson Palmer may be done

    NFL Week 10: Arizona Cardinals are 8-1, but Carson Palmer may be done
    The last time the Arizona Cardinals were 8-1? They were the Chicago Cardinals. NFL-leading Arizona achieved that feat again Sunday, matching the club's starts in 1925 and 1948, with a 31-14 victory over the visiting St. Louis Rams. On a day when the...
  • NFL Week 10: Predictably, another season defies prediction

    NFL Week 10: Predictably, another season defies prediction
    Not many people would have predicted that Sunday's game between Miami and Detroit would be the kind of splashy matchup it is, between two erstwhile also-rans riding three-game winning streaks. And who could have guessed San Francisco at New Orleans...
  • Huddle up: Bears playoff hopes hinge on beating Packers

    Huddle up: Bears playoff hopes hinge on beating Packers
    The Bears (3-5) need a victory Sunday night to maintain a realistic chance of qualifying for the playoffs. They have to get it at Lambeau Field against the 5-3 Packers, who outlasted them early and whipped them late in a 38-17 victory at Soldier Field...
  • Bears eliminated from playoff contention

    Bears eliminated from playoff contention
    The Chicago Bears were officially eliminated from postseason contention Sunday, a fate that had been expected for weeks. The Bears (5-8) have now missed the playoffs in each of the last four seasons. They have qualified only once since their Super...
  • McCoy finds Eagles career rushing record to be bittersweet

    McCoy finds Eagles career rushing record to be bittersweet
    — LeSean McCoy would have traded some yards for a win. The Philadelphia Eagles running back certainly has enough of them — a franchise-best 6,451 for his career, in fact. Alas, he surpassed the previous leader, Wilbert Montgomery, during a...
  • Seattle slows down the Eagles offense and big expectations

    Seattle slows down the Eagles offense and big expectations
    Exactly 44 Sundays after they won the Super Bowl, the Seattle Seahawks showed they're still probably the best team in football. Just as they did 10 months earlier about 96 miles north on I-95, the Seahawks proved on Sunday in a not-as-close-as-it-...
  • Jim Harbaugh, once the 49ers' rescuer, now seems viewed as expendable

     Jim Harbaugh, once the 49ers' rescuer, now seems viewed as expendable
    Jim Harbaugh rescued the San Francisco 49ers from the muck of mediocrity and turned them back into a winning franchise, leading them to three consecutive NFC title games and a Super Bowl. But by all indications, the 49ers now see him as expendable....
