  • Steelers rally past stunned Texans 30-23

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:47 pm
    PITTSBURGH (AP) The deluge started with a desperation third-down heave, a trickle that turned into a downpour and led to another abrupt turn in the Pittsburgh Steelers' confounding season. Good one week and lousy the next, Pittsburgh managed to be both in a 30-23 victory over the mistake-prone Houston Texans on Monday night. Ben Roethlisberger passed for two touchdowns and wide receiver Antonio Brown added another on a gadget play during a decisive 73-second stretch late in the first half that moved the Steelers from down 10 to an 11-point lead.

  • Harvin not 'perfect,' happy for chance with Jets

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:49 pm
    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Percy Harvin has been called lots of things during his NFL career. Talented but injury prone. Explosive on the field and combustible off. A playmaker but a troublemaker.

But I'm moving forward. I'm learning from those lessons.

General manager John Idzik called Harvin a "dynamic player who has been productive on offense and special teams." Seahawks…

  • AP source: Decision soon on Goodell Rice testimony

    16 Oct 2014 | 1:27 pm
    A neutral arbiter is expected to decide early next week whether NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should testify during an appeal of Ray Rice's indefinite suspension, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Thursday. Goodell said last week he'd leave the decision to former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones. She was picked by the commissioner and the players' union to hear Rice's appeal earlier this month.
