Much of the focus after Monday night’s game was on doling out blame for the play of the hapless Giants offense, but they weren’t playing against air.

L.A. mayor Eric Garcetti said that embracing just one NFL team -- the Rams -- might have been better for the city.
The Chargers’ return to L.A. isn’t going well, in more than a few ways.

The Los Angeles Chargers have left San Diego behind, but San Diego most certainly hasn’t forgotten them.

A report on Monday indicated Falcons pass rusher Vic Beasley will miss about a month after hurting his hamstring in Sunday night’s win over the Packers, but coach Dan Quinn didn’t go that far while discussing Beasley’s condition. Quinn confirmed that Beasley won’t play against the Lions this week and that was enough to lead [more]
The Chargers’ first two games have ended in similar fashion. An attempt to tie the Broncos in the opener fizzled when Younghoe Koo had a 44-yard field goal try blocked and an attempt to beat the Dolphins Sunday went up in smoke when Koo missed from 44 yards. It was the second miss of the [more]
