    A baseball bat-wielding man tried to break into the home of Philadelphia Eagles’ Fletcher Cox’s last week — but the hulking defensive tackle scared him off with a shotgun, according to a new report. Corbyn Nyemah was allegedly looking for his his ex-girlfriend at Cox’s Mullica Hill mansion, which Nyemah tried to enter by throwing rocks through the front door after midnight on Oct. 15, according to court papers obtained by 6ABC Action News. The home’s surveillance cameras showed Nyemah stalking the property with a baseball bat in hand and trying to enter the garage multiple times, the network reported.
  • Sam Darnold 'seeing ghosts' in scary showing on 'MNF'

    If a soundbite winds up being the highlight of a quarterback's night, that clearly means he didn't have a good night. When a mic'd up Sam Darnold was caught saying, "I'm seeing ghosts," down 24-0 in the first half of Monday night's contest against the New England Patriots, it was evident that things were somehow going to get worse for the New York Jets and their star QB. And by the time the final whistle blew on the brutal 33-0 loss to the undefeated Patriots, those suspicions had been confirmed: Darnold went 11-of-32 for a career-low 86 yards, was sacked...

    Unstoppable team. The 7-0 2019 New England Patriots beat the horrible New York Jets in New Jersey tonight 33-0. The NFL is not that competitive. Not that much parity in the AFC. Yawn.... Patriots probably will go 19-0

    It’s become apparent that the chemistry in the Eagles locker room is off. Following an ugly 37-10 loss to the Cowboys Sunday, Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson spilled on what was going on behind the scenes of the team’s recent struggles. In a postgame interview with NBC Sports, Johnson explained that some of his teammates have been shirking their responsibility.

    As a long time fan, I find myself consuming less pro football then ever before. The product is becoming unwatchable. It wasn't always like this. No one knows that a catch is. No one knows what PI is. QB's are off limits because of their brand potential.I fear we're witnessing the death by a thousand cuts in real time. It's turning into my personal salsa nightmare. Okay, let me explain. I used to frequent a little Mexican joint here in LA - they had this amazing black salsa. Over time, I noticed the salsa losing it's kick, as if they...

I just couldn’t be a sellout," the singer said of the NFL's offer in an interview with Vogue magazine published on Wednesday. “I couldn’t be an enabler,” she continued. “There’s things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.” SNIP “The NFL and Fox really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “They offered it to...

    It was an image that instantly went viral on Sunday: Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and her wife were spotted at the Dallas Cowboys game against the Green Bay Packers, seated next to George W. and Laura Bush.  As is inevitable in our outrage-fueled cancel culture, some malcontents, mainly on the Left, were irate that a popular and mainstream figure like Ellen would allow herself to be seen having a nice time with a Republican.  For just a moment, Trump derangement was supplanted by its predecessor condition on Twitter, as encapsulated by this rant from a professional angry...

    No college football fan will forget Baker Mayfield leading Oklahoma to a win at Ohio State, then planting an OU flag on the Buckeyes’ field. Nick Bosa surely hasn’t forgotten. Bosa was a star at Ohio State. He was the second overall pick of the NFL draft this year by the San Francisco 49ers. And he was fantastic against the Browns and Mayfield on Monday night, when the Niners blew out the Browns, 31-3. Late in the second quarter, Bosa pressured Mayfield again, hit him and forced an incompletion. Bosa got up and did a celebration that Ohio State fans...

    Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder’s patience ran out with Jay Gruden. Gruden got more time than any other coach under Snyder, but it didn’t pay off. Gruden was fired hours after losing to New England, in the middle of his sixth season after a terrible start to the year. Washington fell to 0-5 after a 33-7 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. Washington had been outscored by 78 points in its first five games. Gruden was 35-49-1 as Washington’s coach. He’s the first head coach fired this season.

    Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid “Shad” Khan has bought a majority stake in Black News Channel, a cable-and-satellite network that’s set to launch Nov. 15 in 33 million US households. Khan didn’t disclose the size of his investment, but a source familiar with the deal said it exceeded $25 million. Another called it “open-ended,” adding that “whatever Khan gets involved in, he’s in all the way.”

    As the NFL celebrates its centennial season, a rising vanguard of African American quarterbacks is shattering stereotypes at a position once considered off-limits to black players From his seat at M&T Bank Stadium during last weekend’s NFL game between the Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals, Cyrus Mehri knew he was witnessing something special. In a matchup of the youngest African American starting quarterbacks in the Super Bowl era, 22-year-old Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, the top pick in this year’s draft, threw for 349 yards in only his second professional contest. Not to be outdone, second-year Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, also...

    Sean McDermott took issue with how long two Patriots staffers were on the field during pregame warmups prior to Buffalo's home game against New England. The Bills' head coach, noticing two New England assistants still on the sideline after the majority of the Patriots had already gone into the locker room, personally escorted the lingering staffers off the field. One of the assistants McDermott spoke to was Brian Belichick, the son of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

    Last night's Eagles vs Packers clash was rocked by nasty helmet-on-helmet collisions which saw two NFL stars stretchered off the field. High-octane levels of contact dominated the match in Wisconsin from the opening when Green Bay star Jamaal Williams suffered a bruising late charge in the first quarter. Worried spectators clasped their hands over their mouths as the running back lay motionless on the grass while medics sprinted over. This was followed by an equally brutal collision in the fourth when Philadelphia cornerback Avonte Maddox was brought down after smacking heads with a teammate.
