LOS ANGELES — Eli Manning has some important family history that took place at the Rose Bowl, but he had never set foot in the historic venue until recently, when shooting an episode of "Eli's Places" that's focused on the epic national championship showdown between USC and Texas. "It's different being from the South and growing up in New Orleans," Manning said. "The Rose Bowl wasn't as big or ...

Each week I'll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football — I define "widely available" as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues — and some guys who are probably better off in the free agent pool than collecting dust on your roster. Follow me on Twitter @UTEddieBrown if you have questions throughout the week. Here are my best bets off the waiver wire for ...

Mac Jones pleaded the fifth. The Patriots quarterback met with the media on a video conference late Monday afternoon and wouldn’t divulge much of anything about the injury he suffered against the Ravens. He was asked numerous questions about the left ankle injury, which tests confirmed was a high ankle sprain, according to a source. An NFL Network report further classified the sprain as being ...

LANDOVER, Md. – DeVonta Smith turned his head and noticed the football coming his way. He quickly twisted his body, catapulted himself from his spot in the corner of the end zone, and leaped over Commanders cornerback Kendall Fuller. At the peak of his jump, Smith hauled in the ball from quarterback Jalen Hurts, utilizing his midnight green gloves like a sticky magnet. Smith tumbled hard to ...

LOS ANGELES — Jimmy Garoppolo is the NFL's most photogenic quarterback this side of Tom Brady. But for at least the last couple seasons, when they looked at Garoppolo, the San Francisco 49ers only saw the photo negative. Their focus wasn't what Garoppolo could do, but what he couldn't. He doesn't have a Juggs machine for a right arm, and his passes don't leave vapor trails. He'd prefer to ...

TAMPA, Fla. — They are the two oldest starting quarterbacks in the NFL. They also have won the most games among active players. And lately, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers share another distinction. Their chase of perfection is really trying their patience. Both the Bucs and the Packers head into Sunday’s game at Raymond James Stadium trying to play the best they can with receivers who are injured ...

Each evening, on his 40-minute drive home, Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Josh Boyer calls his father, Jeff, back in Ohio. The son was on a football sideline before he could walk or talk and grew up in the game through the prism of his father, a high school coach for four decades. So there are two conversational topics on those nightly phone calls: Family and football. That means this ...

Carson Wentz has been a hot topic of discussion at the NovaCare Complex. The chatter about the Washington Commanders quarterback’s first game against his former team isn’t limited to the auditorium that holds news conferences or the locker room. Eagles coach Nick Sirianni has been searching for an edge by polling Wentz’s former teammates and members of the organization familiar with his ...

CHICAGO — Ninety seconds into his postgame news conference Sunday night at Lambeau Field, Justin Fields was thrown a slow-breaking curveball, one he wasn’t quite prepared for as he continued digesting the Chicago Bears’ 27-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers. — Reporter: Losing against this team, does it sting more because of the rivalry and you know how much Bears fans want to win this game? — ...

Mitch Trubisky will make his debut in the Steelers-Browns rivalry. At this point, his second appearance isn't so certain. Given the job as Pittsburgh's starting quarterback in training camp over rookie Kenny Pickett mostly because of his experience, Trubisky isn't making enough plays. He has struggled to connect with Pittsburgh’s receivers through two games and is ranked No. 32 in yards per attempt. He'll now take aim at a Browns secondary plagued by communication breakdowns that have resulted in big plays. Cleveland's trying to bounce back on a short week after an epic collapse at home Sunday, when the Browns gave up 14 points in the final two minutes and lost to the New York Jets 31-30.

PHILADELPHIA — Jalen Hurts has had 21 games now as the Eagles’ starting quarterback, and their 24-7 victory over the Vikings on Monday night was his finest hour in those 21. He threw for 333 yards and a touchdown, ran for 57 yards and two more TDs, was sharp and commanding in every regard. It was a brilliant performance, and it was almost enough to make you forget that he wasn’t supposed to be ...

ORLANDO, Fla. — Billy Napier certainly knows much more about coaching quarterbacks and motivating players than some old, bald sportswriter who hasn’t played football since his glory days at Interlachen High School a hundred years ago. But if I may make a suggestion to the Florida Gators first-year head coach, I think I might have a solution for how Napier can get his extraordinarily talented ...

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Thank goodness no other team in the NFL wanted Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers needed him Sunday. They’ll need him for the next 15 games, too. They might need him for another few seasons beyond that. Trey Lance’s first season as the 49ers’ starting quarterback is over after five quarters, as he broke his right ankle on a first-quarter running play during a 27-7 win over the ...

PHILADELPHIA — Perhaps my greatest regret as a sportswriter is expecting too much too soon from Donovan McNabb. Now, I find myself doing the same with Jalen Hurts. As my father used to say: Wise men make mistakes. Fools repeat them. We should try not to repeat the mistakes we made with McNabb. Hurts is a third-year, second-round pick who has started just 21 NFL games. He has a passable arm, ...

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Entering his first football game since Nov. 29, 2019, Nate Yarnell knew he didn't need to be perfect. Coming off an overtime loss the previous week where No. 23 Pitt saw its top two quarterbacks on the depth chart suffer injuries, Pat Narduzzi formulated a game plan behind the redshirt freshman that would be just enough to squeak out a road victory — and it was successful. ...

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Thank goodness that’s over. Michigan’s noncompetitive nonconference ended mercifully Saturday against no-contest UConn. The Big Ten schedule is next, and the 3-0 Wolverines might muster one concern: Don’t fall for the con. They beat Connecticut 59-0 at Michigan Stadium, again showing they can dominate a lesser foe without flexing, or barely sweating. With previous victories ...
