Could an All-Alabama team win the Super Bowl?

Indianapolis Colts receiver and Miami product Andre Johnson recently suggested that a team comprised only of Miami Hurricane alumni could win a Super Bowl, which seemed far-fetched considering that there isn’t a quarterback in the NFL from “The U.” But Johnson gave us a nice idea, so here’s our first look at a potential alumni all-star NFL team that might be able to compete...

Watch: Marshawn Lynch goes Beast Mode on Cardinals' defense

Marshawn Lynch's upset stomach might have sidelined him for the first quarter of Sunday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals. It didn't prevent him from putting together a sick touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Lynch, running up the sideline, broke a Patrick Peterson and Rashad Johnson tackle and raced upfield for the score. It's a touchdown reminiscent of the legendary...

Win over Seahawks last season set table for Arizona's 2014 run

TEMPE, Ariz. -- In the big picture, the Cardinals' 17-10 win over the Seahawks on Dec. 22 in Seattle didn't mean much to the Seahawks. Seattle won the Super Bowl. Arizona didn't make the playoffs.  Through that lens, Sunday's rematch -- the first time these teams have seen each other since Arizona ended Seattle's 14-game home winning streak -- shouldn't have any residual effects...
