    LONDON – A palace rose into the sky out of a working class neighborhood in north London on Thursday, the home of the English Premier League’s Tottenham Hotspur F.C., temporarily adorned with photos of Saquon Barkley and Aaron Rodgers. Local pubs like The Bricklayers on High Road were teeming with NFL fans after last weekend’s Vikings-Saints game inside this London Academy of Excellence, as ...

      If N.C. State thought going down to Clemson was tough, that was nothing compared to what the Wolfpack faces this week. This is suddenly the hardest game of N.C. State’s schedule, and it wouldn’t matter if it were a decent opponent, although it is, at home or on the road. Beating resurgent Florida State will be hard enough, physically, although the Wolfpack is a 3 1/2-point favorite. It’s the ...

        In a world where the backup quarterback is sometimes the most popular guy in town, Dolphins quarterback Skylar Thompson, the rookie seventh-round pick from Kansas State who dazzled in preseason, is trying to stay low key. It’s been fairly easy so far. We’ll see whether it lasts. “Fans, media, coaches, everybody in football, your favorite player is the backup quarterback,” Dolphins coach Mike ...

          TAMPA, Fla. ― Tom Brady has operated from the highest perch in the NFL for 23 seasons, so when he gazes upon the landscape you have to give great weight to his point of view. “I think there’s a lot of bad football, from what I’ve watched,” Brady said Thursday. “That’s what I’ve watched. There’s a lot of bad football. Poor quality football is what I see.” Through four games, NFL teams are ...

            ALLEN PARK, Mich. — After more than 25 years of marriage, Devaney Glenn knew the drill. Sunday evening, she was having dinner at a restaurant with her husband, Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn, and after a disastrous showing by Detroit’s defense in a 48-45 home loss to Seattle that afternoon, he was more than a little worked up. “I’m just bitching about everything,” Aaron Glenn recalled ...

              Numbers don’t matter, Justin Fields said after Sunday’s 20-12 road loss to the New York Giants, explaining that the Chicago Bears’ 2-2 record is the only figure that counts. That’s hard to dispute, and as the sample size grows it’s becoming increasingly difficult to say anything is working well on offense outside of the running game. For the longest time, coaches divided seasons into quarters, ...

              Here's a look back at Week 4's action, and fantasy advice for the week ahead: WEEK 4 RECAP Bengals 27, Dolphins 15: Raheem Mostert has been Miami’s clear leader on early downs for three straight games. Despite Chase Edmonds scoring three times in the last two games, Mostert is looking like the running back with the highest upside going forward. Vikings 28, Saints 25: The Justin Jefferson panic ...

              The Los Angeles Times will highlight the top college football games worth watching each week. Here's a rundown of six games in Week 6 of the 2022 season that should be worth your viewing time. All times are Pacific. No. 17 Texas Christian (4-0) at No. 19 Kansas (5-0) In this Big 12 encounter, the Horned Frogs bring the best offense in the country (8.33 yards per play directed by quarterback ...

              NEW YORK — Mike Batesole records every Yankee game. He prefers to watch each at-bat by his former player, Aaron Judge, live and in the moment, but Batesole’s pretty busy as the head baseball coach at Judge’s alma mater, Fresno State. “I can always rewind,” Batesole says, laughing. As a result, he’s seen all of Judge’s home runs this magnificent season. In fact, he probably hasn’t missed a ...

              LOS ANGELES — All together, let's sing the birthday song: "Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, dear MaxPreps…" Yes, this is MaxPreps' 20th year of existence, and few organizations have been more important in helping bring high school sports into the digital era. You'll have to remember what it was like before MaxPreps was created by California-based Andy Beal in 2002 ...

              How loudly would Rocky Mountain thunder shake Broncos Country if Phillip Lindsay and Melvin Gordon didn’t wait until after the game to do the traditional uniform swap and decided to switch teams prior to kickoff between the Broncos and Colts? Would you trade Gordon for Lindsay right now? Look who’s back in this dusty old cowtown. The favorite son returns home for Thursday Night Football. ...

              LOS ANGELES — Rams linebacker Bobby Wagner said he was just trying to help when he tackled a man who ran onto the field with a smoke bomb during a “Monday Night Football” game against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium. The next day, the man filed a report with the Santa Clara Police Department, which has an active investigation, the Associated Press confirmed Wednesday. “It is what it ...

              All eyes will be on quarterback Teddy Bridgewater when the Dolphins visit the New York Jets this Sunday. But the focus should be elsewhere. The focus should be on getting the running game going. The Dolphins (3-1) are 29th in rushing at 69.3 yards per game. They rank 28th in yards per carry (3.5), and have the league’s fewest rushing attempts (80). The running game is practically a rumor. It ...

              CHICAGO — Former Chicago Bears executive Jerry Vainisi, the general manager when the team won Super Bowl XX in January 1986, died Tuesday at age 80. Vainisi served as Bears GM for four seasons, promoted to that post by franchise founder and owner George Halas in summer 1983. The team confirmed Vainisi’s death Wednesday evening. Vainisi remained in that role through the end of the 1986 season, ...

              COLUMBIA, S.C. — Two Clemson football players were racing each other in the moments before a crash that severely injured a postal worker in July 2021, according to a civil court lawsuit filed Wednesday. A lawsuit filed on behalf of crash victim Karen Lorraine Alvarez accused Clemson defensive backs Fred Davis II and Malcolm Greene of “racing their vehicles” prior to Davis’ car colliding with ...

              For Kentucky football, the main goal remains attainable. Get to Atlanta. Win the SEC East. Play in the conference championship game. Short of that, the goal is to make that Nov. 19 matchup with Georgia at Kroger Field mean something. Or everything, actually. Last Saturday’s loss at Ole Miss did nothing to change any of that. Mark Stoops’ Wildcats are now 4-1 overall and 1-1 in the SEC. They ...

              The Detroit Lions’ marriage with Matt Patricia ended the way most team/coach unions do in the NFL — in divorce. But unlike most long-term relationships, there are no good times worth remembering. The pairing was toxic almost from the start through its bitter finish, which probably came a year later than it should have. There's a football game to be played Sunday, between the Lions and New ...

              TAMPA, Fla. — Veteran receiver Cole Beasley’s tenure with the Bucs is ending after two games. The team confirmed Wednesday that Beasley, 33, has opted to retire — effective immediately — reportedly to devote more time to his family. NFL Network first reported Beasley’s departure. Following his Tampa Bay debut two Sundays ago against the Packers, Beasley — a married dad of three — spoke of the ...

              Aaron Judge has hit his 62nd home run of the season to break Roger Maris’ American League record. Judge hit a 1-1 slider from Texas right-hander Jesús Tinoco into the first row of seats in left field when leading off the second game of New York’s day-night doubleheader on Tuesday.
