Ousted Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera reveals his biggest regret

Thursday, December 5th, 2019

Longtime Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera was fired from his position on Tuesday, and there's something he wishes he could have accomplished before his time at Bank of America Stadium was up. The Panthers appeared in one big game during Rivera's tenure, losing Super Bowl 50 to the Denver Broncos. Carolina clinched a postseason berth four total times during Rivera's nine years as head coach.

Drew Lock brings swag if not stats to Denver Broncos

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

Drew Lock didn't light up the scoreboard, stack the stat sheet or thrill many fantasy football owners during his NFL debut last weekend. ''I knew Drew had a little swag in him,'' receiver Courtland Sutton said after catching two touchdown passes and drawing a crucial last-second pass interference flag in Denver's 23-20 win over the Chargers. Lock's saunter was on display even though he threw for just 134 yards, including 11 after halftime and 33 on a meaningless final throw before the half when the safeties were guarding the goal line and not Sutton's crossing route.

Derek Wolfe's career year is finished, and his eight-season stay in Denver might be over, too. The Broncos placed Wolfe on injured reserve Tuesday, 48 hours after the defensive end dislocated his left elbow in a 23-20 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Struggling Panthers fire head coach Rivera

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019

The Carolina Panthers have fired head coach Ron Rivera following a run of one win in six games. Rivera led the Panthers to Super Bowl 50 in the 2015 campaign, but a team who went 15-1 in the regular season were stymied by the Denver Broncos in a 24-10 defeat. The Panthers have not won a playoff game since, though there were signs of life this year after they recovered from an 0-2 start to win their next four games despite the absence of injured quarterback Cam Newton, who has not played since the Week 2 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a Lisfranc fracture.
