Sep. 17, 2020 6:28 PM EDT

Mike McCarthy got the sentimental stuff out of the way before his first home game as coach of the Dallas Cowboys, in the stadium where he won his Super Bowl with Green Bay a decade ago.

Sep. 10, 2020 5:31 PM EDT

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Before Stan Kroenke became the driving force behind the NFL's return to Los Angeles, Jerry Jones had a leading role in the years of political maneuvering, hard work and massive construction that led to the inaugural game at SoFi Stadium. So it's only fitting that when Kroenke's Los...
