NFL weighs protesting players’ passion against Trump rebukes

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

An NFL spokesman has said the president may not see an outright ban on the act soon, if ever.

Monday, October 9th, 2017

The Jets have an opportunity to claim sole possession of first place in the AFC East on Sunday, and to do that they'll need to beat the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. And though the Patriots, which entered the season with the belief they could run the table and go undefeated, share a 3-2 record with the Jets (and Buffalo Bills), Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he knows what his team will be up against despite New England's slow start. "They are still the same Patriots," Bowles said on Monday. "You have to knock them off the ladder. They are kings of the division right now, they won the Super Bowl.

Redskins vs. Chiefs: Monday Night Football Injury News for Fantasy Owners

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

In an NFL season where it seems that anyone really can beat anyone (OK, not the Browns), the Kansas City Chiefs stand alone in front of the pack.
