Robert Griffin III hoping for a call from Texans, or anyone

Bills coach Sean McDermott better be right about benching his QB

The new Buffalo Bills’ regime has been all about unconventional moves, which isn’t a bad thing. They traded Sammy Watkins before the season, which led some to wonder if they were tanking. During the season, Buffalo  dealt defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, and their run defense immediately gave up 194 and 298 yards without him. Show More Summary

Buffalo streaker honored with T-shirt for charity

Sometimes, you’ve got to let it all hang out for charity.

Jerry Jones continues to rant, this time saying Thursday night games are fine for players

Jerry Jones, who never played NFL football and presumably didn’t play any games on three days rest at Arkansas, said players shouldn’t have any complaints about “Thursday Night Football.” We’ve finally reached Peak Jerry.

Vikings don't want Panthers TE Greg Olsen in broadcast booth for their game
