    Brian Daboll wasn’t in a sharing mood on Monday. He would not explain what his analytics team’s math was telling him about how Sunday’s 20-20 tie with Washington impacted the Giants’ playoff chances. “We tied the game. We obviously would like to win the game,” Daboll said, one day after coaching for a tie in overtime. He would not give details on why his offense’s second half was so much worse ...

      The Vikings took a 20-6 lead into halftime on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium, and with the second-half kickoff coming their way, they seemed in position to pull away from the Jets and get their first comfortable victory since Week 1 against the Packers. They ended the day doing everything they could to contain a frantic Jets rally in a 27-22 win, holding New York to 10 points on four ...

        Two weeks ago, following the Jets’ 10-3 loss against the Patriots, Jets coach Robert Saleh declined to commit to Zach Wilson as the starting quarterback. Days later, Saleh benched Wilson for backup quarterback Mike White. On Wednesday, Saleh had an opportunity to declare White the starter moving forward, but he declined to do so as he continued to say the intent is to get Wilson back on the ...

          The Carolina Panthers and Baker Mayfield got a quickie divorce Monday. The marriage lasted only five months, which was time for Mayfield and the Panthers to progress through an extremely brief honeymoon phase (training camp) to their first spat (a Week 1 loss) to more serious problems (Mayfield’s ankle injury) to irreconcilable differences (Mayfield’s 1-5 record as a Panther starter). By ...

          ROSHARON, Texas — On the very first two Carolina Panthers teams, in 1995 and 1996, Lamar Lathon was my favorite defensive player to watch. Sam Mills was steadier. Kevin Greene, once he got there in 1996, was a purer pass rusher. Those two both ended up as Pro Football Hall of Famers. But Lathon? He was more explosive than either of them. My gosh, what a player. A 6-foot-3, 265-pound Adonis of ...

          DENVER — Colorado football is ready to go Prime Time again.
