ATLANTA (AP) — As the ball spun slowly along the turf at Jerry’s World, the black-clad players backing away like it was a live grenade, Atlanta’s grim sports history flooded the consciousness. It was an unstoppable wave of misery, disgust and gagging at the most inopportune times, all wrapped...

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — One gamble after another failed for coach Mike McCarthy in his home debut with the Dallas Cowboys. A successful onside kick made them all moot.

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. After getting hired, McCarthy wanted to know how long the ride was from team headquarters to AT&T Stadium, so he made the...

Jeudy's two drops stick out as 1st-round receivers stumble

Sep. 16, 2020 8:05 PM EDT

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — First-round draft pick Jerry Jeudy is a man of few words and even fewer miscues. After dropping a pair of passes in his NFL debut, the normally sure-handed receiver from Alabama tweeted, “Failure is growth.” Jeudy, the 15th overall selection in the NFL draft, took his...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams saw some encouraging early returns from Sean McVay's offseason decision to make systemic changes to what was already a pretty good defense.

McCarthy loses 1st game with Cowboys, but might have won QB

Sep. 14, 2020 2:37 PM EDT

Mike McCarthy lost his debut as coach of the Dallas Cowboys in part because of a curious fourth-down decision that didn't work. He might have won a quarterback with the move. Dak Prescott's pass to rookie receiver CeeDee Lamb covered 2 yards on fourth-and-3 when a short field goal could have pulled Dallas even in...
