Reliant may get face lift for Super Bowl LI bid

HOUSTON -- If you thought Reliant Stadium was nice, well, you're right. It's just not nice enough to host the Super Bowl. That was the takeaway from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's visit to Houston on Tuesday. Goodell spoke to civic leaders in the city about the possibility of Houston hosting Super Bowl 51 in 2017, and he said Reliant Stadium would need some minor upgrades...

Rodgers leads Packers to road win

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers made themselves right at home in St. Louis.

11-year-old Donte Cano gave NFL idea to use pink flags for Dolphins-Jets game

With this weekend marking the final round of games during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the NFL has decided to do something it has never done before.

Can the Pack Get Back to the Super Bowl

The Green Bay Packers have had a very interesting start to their season. The opening day loss to the 49ers at Lambeau wasn't too crazy but fans expected a lot more from reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers and company.  The following week it was the Bears offensive line that allowed Clay Matthews to sack the Pack to victory.  After that was the "Fail Mary" game where Green...

Rodgers, Cobb help Packers separate in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS -- Another week, another weapon emerges for the Green Bay Packers. Wide receiver Randall Cobb continued his breakout second season Sunday at Edward Jones Dome.

Tailgating 2012: Miami Fans Show Up With Beer Bong Mannequin For FSU

  Miami has been playing to empty football stadiums all season and the apathy from the Hurricane fans is well documented. Remember the mid-September game against Bethune-Cookman? Embarrassing.

NFL Rumors: Sticky Situation Brewing For San Diego Chargers?

The San Diego Chargers may find themselves in a sticky situation, and it has nothing to do with the fact that they blew a 24-0 halftime lead at home in a disappointing loss to the Denver Broncos last Monday night.
