The Los Angeles Rams found the perfect remedy for their struggling offensive attack last Sunday. That remedy was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who had their issues on defense, and the Rams took advantage in a 37-32 victory. Case Keenum was able to...

This kind of matchup is probably not what NBC had in mind when they were going through the early NFL schedule and saw this one penciled in for “Sunday Night Football.” While the game involves two big markets and historically...

The Carolina Panthers may have kicked off their season on a sour note, losing to the Broncos for the second time in as many games, but it did not take Cam Newton and company long to get back on track with a dominant 46-27 victory over the 49ers...

One of football's oldest, feistiest rivalries packs a little extra punch this weekend down in the nation's capital. Both the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins, each still smarting from a rough Week 1, are trying to avoid the ruin of...
