Sources: Rajon Rondo trade to Mavericks a 'done deal'

DALLAS - The Mavericks started knocking on the Rajon Rondo door 15 months ago, with a call from Dallas general manager Donnie Nelson to Celtics general manager Anny Ainge.

Thunder's Westbrook 'Ready to Fly' in Foot Locker commercial

Russell Westbrook snarls and scoffs when he's playing, but in his most-recent commercial advertising for Foot Locker, Westbrook is just funny. In a sports commercial that pokes fun at every other sports commercial, Westbrook teases a young, wanna-be star who thinks he's ready for the NBA. Westbrook scored 32 points in 24 minutes against the Knicks on Nov. 28, but this commercial...

Cowboys' flaws exposed in NFC East showdown with Eagles

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Hold off on those playoff tickets until further notice. In what was billed as an NFC East showdown, only one team bothered to make an appearance. The Philadelphia Eagles manhandled the Dallas Cowboys from the opening snap. It was a 33-10 score that could've been so much worse. The Cowboys (8-4) are now effectively two games behind the Eagles (9-3), with a game...

Texans' Watt meets J.J. Watt... the horse

Now here's something you don't see everyday. Houston Texans' star J.J. Watt riding a horse - in full pads and helmet - also named J.J. Watt. Thursday, after practice, a member of the Houston Police Department's Mounted Patrol brought his four-legged partner to NRG Stadium so Watt could meet the horse named in his honor.

Cowboys still effective without Romo at full-strength

The sight of Tony Romo carving up the Jacksonville Jaguars was so pleasing to Jason Garrett's eye that he foolishly let him play well into the fourth quarter of a 31-17 win Sunday. Romo completed six passes to Dez Bryant for 158 yards and two touchdowns…in the second quarter alone. It was the type of dominant win the Cowboys desperately needed to convince themselves (and others...

Could the NFC East really come down to backup quarterbacks?

By Monday evening, both the Washington Redskins and New York Giants had bowed out of the NFC East race. The Redskins may have rallied from a 3-6 start two years ago, but that was a much different Robert Griffin III leading that team. The Eagles (6-2) and Cowboys (6-3) will slug it out for NFC East supremacy. The Cowboys have fallen from NFC grace rapidly after a 6-1 start. Back-to...

TCU has another chance to make national impression

FORT WORTH, Texas -- In typical Gary Patterson fashion, the TCU head coach started off his time at the podium for Tuesday's media day by saying that the Frogs were back home for Week 9 of the college football season. While Patterson would never admit it, this is so much more than just Week 9 for the Frogs. Saturday's prime-time game against Kansas State at Amon G. Carter Stadium...

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Matt Kenseth will be on the pole for Sunday's AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway but it was a qualifying lap by Tony Stewart that stole the show.

West Virginia president says 'sorry' to TCU in College GameDay sign

Before TCU joined the Big 12, the Horned Frogs were an annual threat to bust the BCS.  When they earned a berth in the Fiesta Bowl in 2010 against Boise State, then-Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee took a shot at the mid-major football teams.  "Well, I don't know enough about the X's and O's of college football," Gee told the Associated Press in 2010. "I do know, having been...

Saints defense playing best football of the season

The Saints' win over the Carolina Panthers on the road Thursday did more than move the team into the division lead and prove that the Black and Gold can win away from the Superdome: it also marked the best game so far for what's been a floundering defensive unit. "I feel like we definitely came out that way," defensive end Akiem Hicks said. "We were firing on all cylinders. As a...

Cowboys downplay Dez Bryant's practice squabble with Joseph Randle

The early portion of Cowboys practice was far more entertaining than usual on Friday morning.

Media members were treated to a rare show Friday, though, when veteran tight end Jason Witten berated Joseph...
