Oct. 15, 2020 6:44 PM EDT

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Justin Herbert has accomplished plenty during his first four NFL starts. But he still hasn't done the one thing that ultimately defines quarterbacks — lead his team to victory.

Maybe Patriots-Chiefs will be classic Chiefs-Ravens wasn't

Oct. 2, 2020 12:12 AM EDT

With the way the Chiefs toyed with the Ravens in prime time in a matchup of the two best teams in the AFC — and possibly the entire NFL — it's hardly surprising that Kansas City is being anointed months before the Super Bowl. Oh yes, the defending champions look unstoppable on offense and vastly...

Lack of turnovers remains a concern for Chargers' defense

Oct. 1, 2020 8:15 PM EDT

Anthony Lynn said at the end of last season that generating turnovers would be a major point of emphasis for the Los Angeles Chargers this year. So far, it hasn't materialized the way their coach thought it would. Los Angeles goes into Sunday's game at Tampa Bay without a takeaway in the past two games and only...

When Buccaneers near the goal line, Brady looks for Evans

Oct. 1, 2020 7:21 PM EDT

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Bruce Arians doesn’t blame Tom Brady for looking for Mike Evans when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are close to the goal line. The 67-year-old coach jokes that even he could get the job done with one of the NFL’s best receivers at his disposal from inside the 20-yard line....

Injury woes have Chargers shuffling offensive line

Sep. 30, 2020 7:23 PM EDT

Anthony Lynn has already done more shuffling to the Los Angeles Chargers offensive line over the first three weeks than most coaches do in a season.
