Sunday, January 5th, 2020

Antonio Brown said he only wants to play with New England Patriots star Tom Brady next season. Brown has been without an NFL team since his release by the Patriots in September last year amid allegations of sexual assault and rape. The seven-time Pro Bowler only made one appearance for the Patriots following his arrival from the Oakland Raiders, where he never played a game after being dealt by the Pittsburgh Steelers in March 2019.

Patriots vs. Titans: Will Ryan Tannehill finally earn first win at Gillette Stadium?

Friday, January 3rd, 2020

He completed the regular season with a 70.6 completion percentage, 2,742 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and only six interceptions.

Grading 2019 NFL first-round draft picks after rookie year

Thursday, January 2nd, 2020

When the dawn rose on April 26, every NFL team that possessed a first-round likely would have self-applied a grade of A with their initial choices in the 2019 NFL draft. It's hard not to be impressed with what Murray did to liven up one of the NFL's worst offenses from 2018. Murray took too many sacks (a league-high 48), but he has made strides through the second half of the season, hasn't lost a fumble and is ahead of where Lamar Jackson was as a rookie passer in 2018.

Wednesday, January 1st, 2020

From the moment two officials failed to throw a flag for obvious pass interference on a play that helped decide the NFC championship - stunning the players, coaches and millions of fans - officiating and replay became a constant theme in 2019. No matter the sport, fans and competitors were frustrated by inconsistent standards and rules that prevent some obvious mistakes from being changed. ''I don't want any instant replay in my life personally, but if we are going to have it, let's use it properly,'' Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden said after getting an apology for a blown call that led to a loss.
