Four Downs: Falcons' defense shredded in loss to Vikings

The Atlanta Falcons gave up 41 points to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, and that wasn't even one of their biggest problems. Minnesota scored 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to win by 13, and romped down the field at will on Atlanta's defense, racking up 558 total yards of offense.

Three Cuts: Braves end season with win over Phillies

A disappointing season that sparked a front office rearrangement and could lead to wholesale changes this winter is, perhaps mercifully, over for the Atlanta Braves.

Gurley's Heisman run hits new heights in UGA's win over Vols

ATHENS, Ga. -- The waiting is often the hardest part, whether it involves an epic Tom Petty song, or a Heisman Trophy frontrunner biding his time on a crucial fourth-quarter carry.

Kentucky stops SEC losing streak at 17 games

It sounded bad enough at 17 games. Consider there were two years, 10 months and two days (1,036 days) in between conference wins, and the thought is downright harrowing.
