The Seattle Seahawks running back had 15 carries for 39 rushing yards and three catches for 43 receiving yards in his team’s 19-3 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Lynch was fined $50,000 for refusing to speak to reporters after last weekend’s game, so this...

Brad Stevens Sees Reasons For Optimism In Celtics’ Loss To Trail Blazers

BOSTON — Brad Stevens wasn’t hanging his head Sunday after his Celtics dropped their fifth game in six tries. Because although Boston ultimately unraveled in a 94-88 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, its head coach saw something from his team that has been conspicuously absent this season: actual, real, NBA-quality defense. For the better part of three quarters, the Celtics...

Celtics’ Defense Needs Major Work, But Loss To Blazers Offers Encouragement

BOSTON — The guards pressured the ball. The big men rotated perfectly to cut off penetration. The wing players contested and closed out on 3-point shooters. In other words, the Celtics were everything they haven’t been all season. It was funny to hear coach Brad Stevens praise his team’s defense so thoroughly Sunday, not just because the Celtics had...

Peyton Manning Booed At Home During Broncos’ Early Struggles (Video)

Exactly one month ago, Peyton Manning was leading the Denver Broncos to their fourth straight win. Now he’s getting booed at his own stadium. You’d think one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history would be safe from reproach, especially if that player’s team has a 7-3 record through Week 11. But Denver’s offense got off to a slow start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday...

Devin McCourty: Patriots’ Cornerbacks Might Be Playing Best In The NFL

FOXBORO, Mass. — There was some rare self-praise coming from inside the New England Patriots’ locker room Sunday. The Patriots trounced the Detroit Lions 34-9 and held quarterback Matthew Stafford’s completion percentage to 39.2 percent, so it was well-deserved. “I don’t know if there’s a group of corners playing better than our group right now,” McCourty said Sunday...

LeGarrette Blount The Latest Cast-Off To Shine For Patriots In Return

FOXBORO, Mass. — Less than a week ago, LeGarrette Blount was walking off LP Field in the middle of a game, upset at a lack of playing time on the 7-4 Pittsburgh Steelers. He was the starting workhorse running back for the 9-2 New England Patriots on Sunday.
