Colts punter asks Antonio Brown not to kick him in face

Pat McAfee doesn't want the Spencer Lanning treatment. On Monday, the Colts' punter tweeted at Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, hoping to avoid the same cleat that Lanning ate in Week 1. https://twitter.com/PatMcAfeeShow/status/524293650033811456 Lanning later joked about the meme-spawning incident, saying it was "pretty funny." McAfee, seemingly, doesn't share...

NFL Power Rankings Week 7

Week 7 in the 2014 NFL season is in the books. With no undefeated teams, it is certainly interesting trying to pick out the best one loss or two loss teams. Five teams in the NFC have one or two losses, but six teams in the AFC have accomplished the same feat through seven weeks. The Bengals technically count at 3-2-1. Does not mean the balance of power between the two conferences...

Five most surprising NFL players through seven weeks

A couple weeks ago, we focused on the five-most surprising players in the NFL after about the first month of the season. In what can’t be considered a shocker, some of these players have fallen completely off the map since.  Now that we are inching towards the midway point of the year, the landscape of the league has started to clear up a bit more. And we figured it made sense...

Bill O’Brien fuming following loss to Steelers

Everything was going right for the Houston Texans against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.

Percy Harvin speaks out: 'I'm not a perfect person'

The (1-6) New York Jets can use all the help they can get on offense. The team ranks 27th in yards per game (320.3) and 28th in points per game (17.3).

Red Sox may be ready to move Yoenis Cespedes

Cespedes finished the season with 22 home runs and 100 RBIs, while Lester was decent for the A’s and will now hit free agency. Meanwhile, Cespedes has a year left on his contract. That...

News station congratulates Gary Payton for breaking TD record

All this time I thought Peyton Manning broke the TD record, turns out it was Gary PAYTON! Who knew?! #PeytonRecord pic.twitter.com/KlIcFRtZ8V — Ashoka Moore (@AshokaESPN) October 20, 2014 In fairness to KOMO in Seattle, the Broncos probably would have been equally as better off with Gary Payton at quarterback during last year’s Super Bowl.

WATCH: Tennessee coach tried to trip Ole Miss player?

It was a frustrating Saturday for Tennessee and its fans. The Volunteers turned the ball over four times and gained just 191 yards of offense in an ugly 34-3 loss to Ole Miss. And if we’re to believe what we see in the below video, it looks like at least one member of UT’s coaching staff might have a little something to regret in the aftermath. After an interception by Ole Miss’...
