Cowboys look to solve road puzzle with trip to Washington

October 17th, 2018

Well more than half of Dak Prescott's sacks and all four of the Dallas Cowboys quarterback's interceptions have come on the road. There are plenty of other numbers to illustrate the stark contrast between the Cowboys at home and away from AT&T Stadium, starting with the symmetrical records of 3-0 and 0-3. While a visit to NFC East-leading Washington on Sunday is a chance for at least a tie for first place along with their first winning record this season, the Cowboys would probably view it as a road breakthrough more than anything.

Cowboys vs. Redskins Betting Preview: Will Road Games Continue to Haunt Dallas?

October 17th, 2018

1. Although Dallas is coming off a 40-7 home win over Jacksonville in Week 6, the road has been a different story in 2018. Not only are the Cowboys winless away from Jerry's World (0-2-1 against the spread), but the team has averaged a meager 12.3 points per game over three defeats at Carolina, Seattle and Houston.

Panthers get rematch with Eagles

October 17th, 2018

The Carolina Panthers had a chance to beat the Philadelphia Eagles last season at home but couldn't get it done, and on Sunday they will get a rematch on the road, where they are 0-2 this season. The eventual Super Bowl champions defeated the Panthers 28-23 lastseason, thanks to intercepting three of quarterback Cam Newton's passes and turning them into points on short fields. Newton knows it won't be any easier this season, even though the Eagles are off to a 3-3 start and sit one-half game behind the NFL East-leading Washington Redskins.

October 17th, 2018

The Chicago Bears could be without star defensive weapon Khalil Mack for their NFL showdown with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

Belichick: Don’t compare Bears’ Mack to LT just yet

October 17th, 2018

No matter how dominant Chicago Bears star pass rusher Khalil Mack is, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick wanted to make one thing clear. ''Wait a minute, we're talking about Lawrence Taylor now,'' Belichick said Wednesday. The Patriots visit the Bears this week and that means Belichick will get an up-close look at one of the game's top outside linebackers, assuming Mack is ready to play after injuring his ankle last week.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph fighting for his job vs. Cardinals, on the Yahoo Sports app

October 17th, 2018

The Broncos general manager used the term “we” before that but he might as well have singled out coach Vance Joseph. If the Broncos lose Thursday night to a 1-5 Arizona Cardinals team — a game that can be livestreamed on the Yahoo Sports mobile app (IOS and Android) — Elway isn’t going to send off Von Miller, Emmanuel Sanders or even Case Keenum. Elway is not going to be the one to take the fall, though his poor personnel decisions are a major reason the Broncos are 2-4.

Bill Belichick and Lawrence Taylor agree: Khalil Mack’s not as good as LT

October 17th, 2018

There’s a high-profile Super Bowl-winning coach who thinks we all need to slow down on the Khalil Mack hype. With the New England Patriots preparing to play the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Bill Belichick was asked if Mack ranks up there with Lawrence Taylor as “one of the better” pass rushers he’s seen. Belichick, the defensive coordinator for the New York Giants through Taylor’s ’80s prime, took the question as a personal affront.
