  • Free tickets for Bills-Jets game in Detroit

    21 Nov 2014 | 7:48 pm
    DETROIT (AP) Are you ready for some free football at Ford Field? Fans are being offered free tickets to the NFL game between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets on Monday night that was moved to Detroit from snow-plagued western New York. The game was originally scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, but the league relocated it to the Lions' indoor stadium after a lake-effect storm dumped about 7 feet of snow on the Buffalo area since Monday.

  • Peterson says 'fresh start' might be best

    20 Nov 2014 | 11:42 pm
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Adrian Peterson says he realizes moving on from the Minnesota Vikings might be best for both him and the team.

He pleaded no contest Nov. 4 to misdemeanor reckless assault. "I know who loves me. The coaches and the players, it's not going to be a problem. I've felt so much…
  • Disappointed Vikings drop hope of Peterson return

    19 Nov 2014 | 3:52 pm
    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Adrian Peterson's last appearance in the Minnesota locker room was nearly 10 weeks ago. The Vikings have played all but one game this season without his swift and strong running ability. Optimism for his return remained among Peterson's teammates, particularly following his plea agreement earlier this month that freed him from the court system with only a misdemeanor charge and probation requirements. The hope, now, has vanished. "We know now he's not coming through those doors and coming back this year to be on our team," cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said Wednesday, the day…

  • NHL teams slowly embracing advance statistics

    21 Nov 2014 | 2:21 pm
    Far removed from punishing hits on the ice, the real crunching in the NHL these days is being done in front offices around the league with the numbers involved in the complex, lengthy calculations of analytics. The "Moneyball" approach popularized in baseball has slowly become as much a part of the NHL as the breakaway. More and more teams are turning to the same kind of analytics that have taken over Major League Baseball when they assess talent, players and performance. Never heard of Corsi and Fenwick statistics? And you call yourself a fan? It's a new era in the NHL and - much like in…
