- November 01, 2016

Never mind a wet midweek test at Stoke City, this was a Halloween which ended with Swansea City given the lasting fright of a defeat that leaves them second-bottom and five points from safety.

- November 01, 2016

He was talking to his wife. The turnover, the running back was chasing the ball. To be fair, all the girls were dressed in costume to celebrate Halloween in Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers, but this dino stuck out. The Broncos defensive coordinator is OK but should at least get a helmet sticker - if he had a helmet. As he ran up the Broncos sideline during the return, Chargers running back Melvin Gordon was blocked into Phillips, who was standing several feet back from the ... (more...)

- November 01, 2016

Penn State defeated Purdue 62-24. However, Penn State players insist a letdown against Purdue is hardly likely considering the team's one-game-at-a-time approach.

Rivers reaches milestone as Chargers tame Broncos Rivers reaches milestone as Chargers tame Broncos
- October 27, 2016

Cowboys Rack Up $54000 Tab at Rookie Dinner Cowboys Rack Up $54000 Tab at Rookie Dinner
- October 26, 2016

After just a few wins, though, people want Tony Romo gone, they want Dez Bryant traded, and they think the defense is completely fixed. This round of rest gave them the chance to get some of their injured players back. That will most certainly change as the season goes on. Prescott has thrown for 200-plus yards in every game he has played this season. In 2010, Bryant got stuck paying a rookie bill of almost $55,000. (more...)
