    Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman addressed the Kenny Pickett conundrum at the opening of Monday night's broadcast, and he was never more accurate. "These are uncharted waters for Mike Tomlin," Aikman said. "And I think if they can get through this season, regardless of what the record is, and they can say Kenny Pickett is their starter and their franchise quarterback, then I believe it ...

      ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Threatening to overshadow an intoxicating weekend in the NFL that began with a trio of Thanksgiving classics and included two successful do-or-die 2-point conversions was all the drama that happened off the field in Week 12.

        Qatar's World Cup is the most compact in history, with all eight stadiums radiating from the capital city in a country smaller than the U.S. state of Connecticut and the two farthest stadiums barely 41 miles (66 kilometers) apart.

          The last remaining sign of A.J. Brown’s rough week was a bright red blotch spreading across the sclera of his right eye, as if a drop of paint had splashed against a tiny canvas. A mysterious illness — could have been food poisoning, could have been a virus — had ruined Brown’s Thanksgiving, had started him vomiting so violently that he lost seven pounds in a single day and a blood vessel in ...

          Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks wasted no time naming Sam Darnold the team’s starting quarterback following Sunday’s 23-10 victory against the Denver Broncos. On Monday — the eve of the Panthers’ Week 13 bye — Wilks explained why anointing Darnold was a no-brainer. “It is not so much a quick decision. It was more like a quick announcement,” Wilks said. “There were a lot of times that ...

          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 ...

          South Florida sports fans awakened on Sunday with a Hurricanes hangover — that pain you feel when your college football team just finished its worst season in 15 years as a colossal disappointment in Year 1 of new coach Mario Cristobal.

          SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Nick Bosa got a hero’s welcome as he arrived at the 49ers’ sideline in the final minutes of Sunday’s eventual win over the New Orleans Saints. Their first shutout in three years was intact, courtesy of his fourth-and-goal sack. Minutes earlier, Dre Greenlaw and Talanoa Hufanga were the 49ers’ defensive heroes, with Greenlaw recovering a fumble at the 1-yard line after a ...

          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 ...

          CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Quarterback Sam Darnold, making his first start of the season under center, and the Carolina Panthers capitalized on an under-achieving Denver Broncos team at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday. In a 23-10 victory, Darnold protected the football well and led the Panthers to a home win — Steve Wilks’ third in as many tries as interim head coach — in a stadium draped in orange. ...

          PHILADELPHIA — Do people still care about Matt Rhule in Philadelphia? Yes, let’s argue. His Temple Owls football era was too historic, his name still resonates around here, even as Rhule officially becomes the new head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Great hire, by the way. If Rhule, now 47 years old, scratched his NFL head-coaching itch and found out life in the pros isn’t that grand ...

          CHICAGO — Don’t worry, Cole Kmet said, Trevor Siemian will not take it as an insult if you say he is unlikely to keep the ball on a zone read and motor 60 yards through the New York Jets defense Sunday at MetLife Stadium. “Definitely more of a drop-back guy, get the ball out, timing,” Kmet said. “We’re not going to be running QB power with Trevor.” The Chicago Bears offense figures to take on ...

          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 ...

          CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Former Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule is headed back to the college game. On Saturday, the University of Nebraska named Rhule as the program’s permanent replacement for Scott Frost.
