Memories of 50 Super Bowls and how the game was named

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Norma Hunt was buying some gifts for her young children in a Dallas toy store when she came across some balls that bounced so high they could go over a small house.

Super Bowl Cheat Sheet: Enough about the QBs, these defenses rock

The NFL's modern era has always been about the quarterbacks. Whether it was Johnny Unitas, Joe Namath and Len Dawson, or Joe Montana, John Elway, and Dan Marino -- it's been about the guys under center. Troy Aikman, Steve Young, and Warren Moon led to Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Ben Roethlisberger. And now, it's Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, and Andrew Luck. After them, it'll be...

The Week That Was In Mostly Terrible Sports Fashion

Sports and fashion are two explosive worlds that have increasingly embraced one another with each passing week. The budding bond is akin to the unbreakable friendship of Beavis and Butt-Head.

Jets UK Chronicles – New York Jets and the Pro Bowl

This weekend features the biggest non event of the football year; the Pro Bowl.
