    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes spoke for seven and a half minutes Wednesday, spread across 15 sets of media questions and his answers. He was accommodating and expansive for the most part, but there was one exception. In response to an inquiry late in the conversation, he provided a terse, six-second reply, more than twice as short as any other. The relevant backdrop: ...

      DENVER — The nondescript one-story warehouse sits just off a busy street south of downtown. Motorists pass by the thousands and seemingly no one gives the place a second glance. If only they knew what happens on the other side of those corrugated metal walls. Not only is the 10,000-square-foot building home to a private collection of 18 lacquered muscle cars, but it's also where another No. 18 ...

        PITTSBURGH — Michael Irvin's assertion the Steelers should be playing Kenny Pickett right now to "see what everything else happens" and comparing it to Troy Aikman's rookie season with the Dallas Cowboys is as baseless and ridiculous as his "playing offensive line is as easy as anything" comment. Irvin said the Cowboys learned a lot about Aikman — his toughness, his character — even though the ...

          SEATTLE — In January 2020, ski mountaineer Hilaree Nelson broke trail on the last few hundred steps to the summit of Mount Vinson, the tallest mountain in Antarctica, on a previously unclimbed route. Nelson, The North Face athlete team captain, led the final push in a team that included her predecessor and the only other person to hold that role, renowned climber Conrad Anker. Garrett Madison, ...

            This is Amazon’s first year broadcasting NFL games, so you’d expect a couple of bumps along the way. But the tech giant’s Thursday Night Football broadcast received a healthy dose of criticism over its coverage of Tua Tagovailoa’s injury. During the second quarter of the Cincinnati Bengals’ 27-15 win over the Miami Dolphins, Tagovailoa was taken off the field on a stretcher and hospitalized ...

              MIAMI — Imagine how we would all be seeing the positive and defiantly doubling down on our optimism about the Miami Dolphins and this season had the game been simply a 27-15 road loss to a Cincinnati Bengals team that made the Super Bowl last season. The Dolphins stand 3-1 at roughly the NFL season’s quarter mark, against the toughest four-game gauntlet on the NFL schedule. In succession they ...

              We’ll never believe the Miami Dolphins or the NFL again. Not after what happened with Tua. On Sunday, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered a concussion, obvious to anyone with eyes: He hit his head on the turf, rose, staggered, and left for examination. One of those sets of eyes belonged to Dr. Kester J. Nedd, a neurologist and the former team physician for the University of Miami’s ...

              ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions have racked up 1,227 yards of offense through three games. On Sunday, they're going to be without two players responsible for nearly half that production, ruling out wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and running back D'Andre Swift on Friday. St. Brown suffered an ankle injury in last Sunday's game against Minnesota. Despite finishing the contest after ...

              Chris Nowinski was in New York City giving a talk and raising $20,000 for the Concussion Legacy Foundation on Thursday night when he looked down at his phone and saw 50 messages. Many came with the video of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa being spun hard to the ground by Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Chris Tupou and smacking the back of his helmet hard on the ground for the ...

              MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — While starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is out indefinitely with a concussion, veteran Teddy Bridgewater will start for the Dolphins, coach Mike McDaniel said Friday. “It’s one of the strengths of our football team, and I think that guys rely on that,” McDaniel said. “Tua, Teddy and Skylar [Thompson] have formed a great working group, and our guys believe in all three ...

              CINCINNATI — Miami Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel firmly defended the team’s decision to play quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the 27-15 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night that resulted in Tagovailoa getting carted away on a stretcher due to a concussion, among his head and neck injuries. McDaniel was asked postgame if he would’ve done anything differently given what transpired with ...

              LOS ANGELES — A former tight end with the Dallas Cowboys was one of two hikers killed while rock climbing in Riverside County, California, authorities said Thursday. Gavin Escobar, 31, and Chelsea Walsh, 33, both of Huntington Beach, died Wednesday afternoon in Tahquitz Rock near Idyllwild, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said. Escobar was a Long Beach firefighter who previously ...

              BALTIMORE — As the Ravens continue to tinker and revamp their team, the offensive line remains perhaps the biggest question mark. Right now, the unit is a revolving door, even though it seemed to find some rhythm in Sunday’s 37-26 win over the New England Patriots. The Buffalo Bills will be a much bigger challenge because they have the No. 2 ranked run defense in the NFL led by Von Miller, ...

              Joe Burrow tossed a late 2-yard touchdown pass to Hayden Hurst to seal a 27-15 win for the Cincinnati Bengals over Miami. The game was marred by the horrific sight of Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa being taken off on a stretcher. Tagovailoa was chased down and slammed to the turf by Cincinnati’s Josh Tupou with about six minutes left in the first half. He was taken to a hospital with reported head and neck injuries. Vonn Bell’s interception of backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with three minutes left in the game set up the Bengals’ final drive.

              LOS ANGELES — Matthew Stafford will not go into a "Monday Night Football" matchup against the San Francisco 49ers riding an obvious wave of production. The Rams quarterback did not throw a touchdown pass in last Sunday's victory over the Arizona Cardinals, the first time since the 2020 season — when Stafford played for the Detroit Lions — that the 14th-year pro was shut out. But Stafford and ...
