So with just a few tweaks to the...

Jaguars hoping to halt 4-year streak of NFL futility

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have shown few, if any, signs of progress over the past four years. They are an NFL-worst 14-50 since 2010, the most dreadful stretch in the franchise's 20-year history and one of the least productive spans since the NFL moved to a 16-game schedule in 1978. Only Tampa Bay (1983-86), Detroit (2006-09) and St. Louis (2007-10) lost more...

Expect 'Deflategate' to motivate Patriots for 2015 season

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The last time the NFL punished the New England Patriots for cheating, they ran through the regular season with a perfect 16-0 record. Expect that same fury in 2015.

Tom Brady must end the silent treatment and provide answers

No more silence. No more lawyer speak. No more statements from agents. It's time to hear from Tom Brady.

Brady went from having the benefit of the doubt in the...

New era under way for Jets under Todd Bowles

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Todd Bowles has made no bold statements, outrageous guarantees or back-page headlines in his first few months with the New York Jets.
