    The longtime [Green Bay] Packers pass rusher is headed to play for the Los Angeles Rams, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation on Tuesday. Now 32, Matthews is still a weapon in the rush, but has slowed as evidenced by his 3.5 sacks in 16 starts in 2018. But he'll get a fresh start in a familiar place with a chance to help the reigning NFC champions get back to the Super Bowl.
  • Saints fan's obit notes he died early Sunday 'determined not to watch Super Bowl'

    The palpable disdain from New Orleans over the Super Bowl was more acute than any corresponding joy experienced in New England or the rest of America over one of the worst championship games in NFL history. Saints fans went to great lengths to avoid the game in dissent of the controversial NFC championship that saw a blown call play a big impact on the Los Angeles Rams advancing to the Super Bowl. While much of New Orleans partied in protest during the game, 65-year-old Henry A. Jaume took the most extreme of measures to avoid the action. He died. Hours...

    div class="article_body top mrf-hidden">Call me old-fashioned for enjoying unapologetic patriotism: honoring our troops, our flag, and our country.  Leftists will call me a stupid black man suffering from Stockholm syndrome for loving my country.  They've done it to others. But then there was rhythm and blues superstar Gladys Knight, the empress of soul, and her stellar performance of our national anthem at Super Bowl 2019.  It brought tears to my eyes.  I salute Ms. Knight for courageously rejecting pressure from leftists to boycott the event.  She went one better than that because she gave it her all. The Los Angeles Rams, meanwhile, said they might skip visiting the White House if they were to win the Super...

    The CBS broadcast game out of Atlanta was seen by a total audience of 100.7 million, according to CBS Sports. That number comes from when you add up everyone who watched on CBS the network, CBS Interactive, NFL digital properties, Verizon Media mobile properties, ESPN Deportes television and other digital properties. Besides being a very unique bundling spin on Super Bowl numbers that previous broadcasters haven’t shamelessly taken, that’s the first time the NFL’s big game on a network as fallen beneath 100 million viewers since 2009 when the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 in Super Bowl XLIII....

    The 13-3 win for the New England Patriots over the Los Angeles Rams last night wasn’t the most exciting Super Bowl ever played by any measure, but the 2019 big NFL game was sure one for the history books. First of all, in the Patriots’ third consecutive visit to Super Bowl, the match-up in Atlanta on Sunday was the lowest scoring Super Bowl ever, a dubious honor at best. The record was previously held by Super Bowl VII, which saw the Miami Dolphins best the Washington Redskins 14-7 on January 14, 1973. Secondly, Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady is now the...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Can somebody tell me why I still watch these things? – The NFL almost pulled off what I had always assumed was the utterly impossible last night, staging a Super Bowl game that was very nearly as boring and tedious as a damn soccer match. Yes, yes, yes, I know – it was a “great defensive battle,” right? Spare me, please. It was a game in which LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff played worse than any Super Bowl QB since at least Billy Kilmer and really since Joe Kapp in Super Bowl...

    Eric Dickerson is a legend in all respects, a Hall of Famer and one of the best running backs to ever play the game. He also used to play for the Rams. And like most Rams fans, he's convinced that the Patriots cheated during their last Super Bowl matchup against the Rams.

    ...[He's] given Jim Nantz, who’s been at the network since 1985, a new energy, a new vigor. “I’ve heard a lot of people say that,” Nantz told me this week. “It’s probably true. … I definitely feel like I’m trying to match up with Tony’s enthusiasm.” “I gotta be honest,” said Tracy Wolfson, the crew’s sideline reporter. “I felt reinvigorated going down the stretch of the season.” Romo’s not just an announcer. He’s an energy drink. It’s not just Romo’s thirst for football that has changed the CBS crew. As Wolfson notes, Romo’s hiring allowed a rare reset for a...

    NEW ORLEANS- It’s a Who Dat take over as thousands of Saints fans fill Fulton Street in New Orleans for the Boycott Bowl. “We are out here because we are true Who Dat fans,” said a Saints fan. This is New Orleans response to not being in the Super Bowl after a no-call on pass interference against Rams that cost the team the NFC Championship and the Super Bowl. More than 3 thousand attended for this anti-super bowl event, and organizers say it’s the largest in the state. The event had concerts with major entertainment including Louisiana’s very own Rockin’...

    The wild thing about this particular Super Bowl matchup, though, is that the phenomenon of teams from the same cities facing off in two consecutive title games is very rare. By virtue of having Red Sox-Dodgers and Patriots-Rams both taking place in the 2018 (or 2018-2019 season), it marks the first time since Super Bowl III in 1969 that this has happened: Super Bowl III: Jets-Colts in January 1969, and then in October 1969 Mets-Orioles. Different seasons. Same calendar year.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A quest by two New Orleans Saints ticketholders to force a full or partial do-over of this year's NFC championship game because of a blown "no-call" by game officials was rejected Thursday by a federal judge. Officials failed to call interference or roughness penalties when a Rams player leveled a Saints receiver with a helmet-to-helmet hit at a crucial point in the final minutes of regulation time. The Rams won the Jan. 20 game in overtime and are set to play the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl in Atlanta. Fan reaction in New Orleans...

    Sportsbooks set the total for Monday night's matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams at an astronomical 64 -- and the two teams blew past that by 41 points. Michael Grodsky, spokesperson for William Hill, which has 108 sportsbooks in Nevada, told ESPN the game was a "healthy seven-figure loss" for the book, with 69 percent of customers betting the over. The game had opened and closed at 64, the highest over/under in an NFL game since at least 1986, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

    This new Los Angeles Rams stadium better be good. We know it will be expensive, to a record level. Sports Business Journal reported that costs for the new stadium in Inglewood have passed $4 billion. You read that right. Stadium costs have gone way up through the years, but no other stadium in the United States has come anywhere close to this. SBJ said the most expensive stadium previous to this was MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, and that cost $1.7 billion. The Raiders’ new stadium in Las Vegas is expected to cost more than $2 billion. That’s still less...

    Los Angeles gets an unwarranted rap as a bad sports town, and Fox Sports isn’t helping LA fans fight that label. Fox posted a listing on the casting site projectcasting.com for “actors, models, and talent” to play Rams fans on its Sunday NFL pre-game show. With the Rams facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in a match-up of two of the league’s best teams, you wouldn’t think it’d be necessary, but alas. “We’re looking for LA’s biggest NFL fans to be part of #NFLSunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pre Game Show!” said the ad. “Come out, bring your...

    The people of St. Louis weren’t really surprised when, on January 12, the National Football League announced its decision to let E. Stanley Kroenke, the owner of the St. Louis Rams, move his team to Los Angeles. Kroenke had long signaled his intentions, and L.A.’s media market beckoned as the nation’s second largest. Moving the team meant more revenue for the league, and therefore more money in owners’ pockets. And that, as serious football fans know, is the point. The NFL isn’t a charity. It’s a legally sanctioned cartel that strictly limits the number of franchises in order to maximize...
