The good, bad and weird of the NFL season

The Associated Press will hand out its individual NFL awards on the night before the Super Bowl in Houston. Until then, here are some off-the-beaten track honors to consider. BEST GAME: The beginning of the end for the defending champions came in Week 12 in a frigid classic. The Broncos blew an eight-point lead over Kansas City and lost 30- 27 when Cairo Santos banked a field goal as overtime expired. Denver’s Brandon McManus hooked a 62-yard attempt with a minute left in OT. Earlier, Trevor Siemian threw a 76-yard touchdown pass to Bennie Fowler that made it 24-16,...

Did the Giants expose the Cowboys in sweep of Dallas?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Maybe instead of looking at what the Cowboys have been doing to the rest of the league, NFL teams should look at what the Giants did to the Cowboys this season. And who knows, maybe what New York could do again should they meet in the playoffs. Dallas’ offense ripped through nearly every opponent during an 11-game winning streak that began after a 20-19 home loss to New York in the season opener. That string ended under the powerful pressure the Giants applied on defense Sunday night: a strong pass rush; sticky coverage of...

NFL HALFWAY: All seem to agree NFL officiating is appalling

In a divided nation, NFL officials are a unifying factor, because everyone seems to disagree with them. Quarterbacks say they take too many dirty hits. Receivers complain they are targeted. Defensive backs say they can’t touch anyone without getting a flag. And coaches say their teams never catch a break. Fans want games to move along without endless reviews and flags. The league’s head of officiating even found himself tweeting during Monday night’s Bills-Seahawks game when the crew bungled a series of calls at the end of the first half on a field goal try that would prove crucial...

Charter captain Jack Carlson tells The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/2awxnI0 ) Sapp was bit while reaching for a lobster the shark was also going after. He says Sapp is OK, but might need stitches. The captain says someone who saw the fish thought it might have been a nurse...

Tom Brady’s ‘Deflategate’ Appeal Rejected By Federal Court

NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court has rejected Tom Brady’s attempt to get a new hearing on his “Deflategate” suspension. Brady was asking for the full 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to hear the case. In April, a three-judge panel said that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was within his powers when he suspended the star quarterback four games for his role in a scheme to doctor the footballs used in a Jan. 18, 2015, playoff game. The decision Wednesday affirms the wide-ranging powers given to the commissioner by the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement and was a...

Monkey bars alert: Playground concussions are on the rise

CHICAGO (AP) — Playground concussions are on the rise, according to a new government study, and monkey bars and swings are most often involved. Most injuries studied were mild, but all concussions are potentially serious and the researchers say the trend raises public health and safety concerns. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study examined national 2001-2013 data on playground injuries to kids aged 14 and younger who received emergency-room treatment. Of almost 215,000 kids on average treated yearly, almost 10 percent — about 21,000 annually — had traumatic brain injuries including concussions. Only nonfatal injuries were...

NFL DRAFT: Key to first round lies in 3rd pick with Chargers

CHICAGO (AP) — For once, the key to the first round of the NFL draft doesn’t belong to the team picking first. Or second. With the Rams and Eagles having traded up to secure the top two spots, where they have said they will take quarterbacks, it’s San Diego that likely will determine the flow on Thursday night. What will the Chargers do with the third selection? Perhaps defensive back Jalen Ramsey of Florida State, considered one of the best athletes and most NFL-ready players available. Maybe Laremy Tunsil, the Ole Miss offensive tackle who can pile-drive blockers into...

Prince and sports: Music in blood, basketball in his heart

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prince had music in his blood. Basketball was in his heart. “I really believe that was his first love,” said Al Nuness, his coach at Minneapolis Central High School. When news of the death of one of modern music’s most influential performers reached Nuness on Thursday through a call from his wife, his thoughts went straight to 1973. That’s when Prince and his precocious ninth-grade friends were promoted to the sophomore team by Nuness. “He was very small,” Nuness said. “But he was quick. He could handle the ball and he could penetrate and he could...

RG3 with Browns: ‘I have a massive chip on my shoulder’

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — As Robert Griffin III vacated the podium following a poised and polished news conference, the quarterback tapped his fingers on the dais and made clear the mantra for his new opportunity. “No pressure, no diamonds,” he said. Though RG3 will face high expectations with the Browns — blending in with a new city, team, coach and offensive system — the former Redskins QB plans to handle all issues with a motivation stemming from numerous problems in Washington. “I’m not trying to let any baggage hold me down from the past,” Griffin said, “but I do...
