  • Jaguars hold off Titans late, win 21-13 in home finale

    18 Dec 2014 | 9:07 pm
    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Blake Bortles revived a stagnant offense. Jordan Todman provided some cushion. And Sen'Derrick Marks sealed it with the most rewarding sack of his career. The trio provided all the highlights in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 21-13 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. In a matchup that was widely billed as unwatchable, Bortles, Todman and Marks offered some compelling moments in a relatively meaningless game. "The neat thing about this was different guys stood up at different times," Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said. Bortles completed 13 of 26 passes for 115…
  • 49ers' Harbaugh mum on reported offer

    18 Dec 2014 | 3:25 pm
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is declining to respond to reports that he is weighing an offer from Michigan to become the new football coach at his alma mater.

  • Bears bench QB Jay Cutler for Clausen

    18 Dec 2014 | 2:49 pm
    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The thought crossed Jay Cutler's mind as soon as he found out he was being benched: He might have played his final game for Chicago. The Bears announced Thursday that they will start Jimmy Clausen against the Detroit Lions on Sunday instead of the man who signed a massive, seven-year deal at the end of last season. Coach Marc Trestman said Cutler will be available as the backup at Soldier Field, where boos have rained down on a punchless, porous team that is now 5-9 and playing out the string after starting the season with legitimate hopes of a playoff run. They will…
  • Adrian Peterson's appeal denied, suspension upheld

    12 Dec 2014 | 9:24 pm
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The NFL's hard line on Adrian Peterson held up. The league-appointed arbitrator for Peterson's appeal affirmed the unpaid suspension until at least next spring, the final result of the child-abuse case that kept the Minnesota running back out of all but one game this season and widened the rift between the NFL and its players over the fairness of the disciplinary process. The decision by Harold Henderson, a former league official, was announced Friday. That means Peterson, though he avoided jail time and a felony conviction, has been fined more than $4.1 million as part of…
