Patriots 31 Unanswered To Win SB51

By Barry Wilner – HOUSTON (AP) — Tom Brady led one of the greatest comebacks in sports history highlighted by an unbelievable Julian Edelman catch that helped lift New England from a 25-point hole against the Atlanta Falcons to the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl victory, the first ever in overtime. The Patriots scored 19 points in the final quarter, including a pair of 2-point conversions, then marched relentlessly to James White’s 2 yard touchdown run in overtime to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 Sunday night. Brady, the first quarterback with five Super Bowl rings, guided the Patriots (17-2) through a…

2017 Pro Football HOF Class Named

By Eddie Pells – HOUSTON (AP) — The running backs were known simply by their initials: LT and TD. The quarterback served as ringmaster for “The Greatest Show on Turf.” All unstoppable in their own way, LaDainian Tomlinson, Terrell Davis and Kurt Warner earned their spots in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Joining them are sackmaster Jason Taylor – in on his first ballot, the same as Tomlinson – and Morten Andersen, the NFL’s all-time leading scorer, who joins Jan Stenerud as the second pure placekicker to make the hall. Seahawks safety Kenny Easley made it as…

Steelers Kick Out Kansas City

By Barry Wilner – KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chris Boswell’s pinpoint right leg and Le’Veon Bell’s two dancing feet. They do call it football, after all. Indeed, Bell spent much of Sunday watching the film “Happy Feet.” “I wasn’t nervous about the game,” Bell said. “I don’t watch ESPN or NFL Live, because I know they’ll talk about the game. I don’t necessarily want to think about the game. “I watch stuff like ‘Happy Feet.’” Who needs to reach the end zone when you have Bell chewing up yards and the clock, and Boswell setting an NFL playoff record…

Chargers Bolt To LA

By Ryan Wilson (CBS Sports) – The Chargers, who began their NFL existence in Los Angeles 57 years ago before moving to San Diego after their inaugural season, are headed back up Interstate 5 to join the Rams in the City of Angels.

It will…

Robbie Gould Signs With Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Josh Brown’s future with the New York Giants and possibly the NFL is in jeopardy after police released journal entries and emails in which the place-kicker admitted that he repeatedly verbally and physically abused his former wife. The league reacted Thursday by re-opening its investigation into a 2015 domestic abuse complaint made by Brown’s former wife, though prosecutors said they were closing the criminal case without filing charges because they could not secure key testimony from the woman and other key witnesses. Meanwhile, the Giants announced before traveling to London that Brown wouldn’t make the…
