    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially announced former Florida and Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer as the franchises next head coach.

    With just days to go in office and facing calls to resign, President Donald Trump is planning to spend the upcoming week taking a ceremonial victory lap and making last-minute use of his presidential powers. A trip to the border is in order, pardons appear to be in the works, and so, too, is an award ceremony for one of his favorite football coaches as well as a top political ally.

    Had the Houston Texans stayed the course and followed the recommendation of the search firm Korn Ferry, they likely would have hired Pittsburgh Steelers vice president of football and business administration Omar Khan as their next general manager, league sources told ESPN. Khan and ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Louis Riddick, who are both minority candidates, were the two finalists before Texans owner Cal McNair changed his mind, ignored the recommendation of the search firm he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to do weeks of work and hired former New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio, sources...

    The word “struggling,” doesn’t seem to be strong enough to describe what has happened to the ratings for NBC’s Sunday Night Football and ESPN’s Monday Night Football. Sunday Night Football’s Patriots-Ravens game last weekend was down a whopping 31 percent over last year’s Week 10 game become the season’s least-watched Sunday game, according to Sports Media Watch. “Ratings have dropped for all 11 NFL games on NBC this season, with viewership down for all-but-one,” SMW reported.
  • NFL bad beat: Nick Chubb costs Browns bettors when he passes on easy TD to go out of bounds

    Nick Chubb was about to get Cleveland Browns bettors a great backdoor cover. Then he took a left turn just before the goal line. The Browns were 3-point favorites at the beginning of the week, went to 3.5 and then 4 points at BetMGM as the week went on. They led the Houston Texans 10-7 with about a minute to go and it looked like a push or loss for Browns bettors. Then, Chubb broke free. Chubb was running to daylight down the sideline, no Texans defender anywhere near him. It was an easy touchdown. Then, just before he scored,...

    The NFL is set to celebrate the LGBTQ community’s “National Coming Out Day” during its Sunday Night Football broadcast this weekend. The campaign, labeled “It Takes All Of Us,” will feature a 30-second video starring openly gay or bisexual NFL players including Ryan O’Callaghan, Jeff Rohrer, R.K. Russell, and Wade Davis. The ad encourages gays to come out and be proud of their sexual proclivities, according to CNN. The video starts with the aforementioned players saying, “To all current players who are thinking of coming out, when you are ready, so are we.” The ad then segues to other players...

    Jay Cutler is receiving backlash on social media after posting a series of photos to his Instagram with a bull elk he was able to harvest during a recent hunt. The former NFL quarterback posted the photos last week from his New Mexico elk hunt. “It’s a wrap in NM. Amazing hunt. Short but sweet,” he wrote in the caption of the photo posted on Thursday. Jay did receive some love from the likes of elk hunting legend, Cameron Hanes, along with a handful of former teammates. Former Chicago Bears tight end Zack Miller commented “Pew pew!! Or was it...

    “Good morning,” Tom said. “I’ve been thinking about what you said. Our conversation.” Tom and I had met years ago at a college camp though he likely hadn’t remembered. He was a coach from an elite college and my older child attended his sports camp. We knew a lot of the same pros and players. And now, both of our younger children were in competitions together. This particular weekend we were settling in on a beautiful crisp morning near the water, the breeze cool on the skin. Tom came over soon after I arrived, because he wanted to share something...

    [snip] Some of the team plans seemed more haphazard than Week One’s careful coordination. The Tennessee Titans were in the middle of pre-game warmups when the song started, causing the team to rush to the sidelines. Titans linebacker Rashaan Evans, safety Kenny Vaccaro, and defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney took a knee, while defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons held his right fist in the air. Titans left guard Rodger Saffold knelt with center Ben Jones with his right hand on Saffold’s back. Right guard Nate Davis took a knee, as right tackle Dennis Kelly’s rested his left hand on Davis’ right shoulder....

    It all seems par for the course for Cleveland. Baker Mayfield bounced back from a rough first week to lead the Cleveland Browns over the Joe Burrow-led Cincinnati Bengals, 35-30, on Thursday night. And approximately 6,000 fans were fortunate enough to watch in person when Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced earlier this month that 6,000 could attend despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The Browns (1-1) prepared fans with a detailed video on their website that delved into social distancing and safety protocols for FirstEnergy Stadium. Everyone attending had to sign a “health promise” and had specific entry times and locations. There...

    After the first week of the NFL season, New York Jets Coach Adam Gase has managed to move into first place. Unfortunately for him, it’s not in the AFC East standings — but rather in the betting odds on the first NFL head coach to be fired. Or, as gambling website Bovada lists it in a semantic device that accounts for coaches possibly being allowed to step down from their jobs to save face, Gase now stands atop the field in the category of “First coach to permanently leave his post.”

    The Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles will both start their respective NFL schedules without fans in the stands when they play at Heinz Field and Lincoln Financial Field, respectively. What will it take for that to change? Health Department Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine weighed in on Friday, just days before both teams play their season openers on the road and two weeks before each plays a home game amid the coronavirus pandemic. Both franchises have said that they won’t have fans in attendance until at least the end of September, but each said in emails to their season ticket holders...

    Most Chiefs players stood, locking arms on the sideline for the national anthem. At least one Chiefs player knelt and raised a fist. Players locked arm-and-arm across the goal line for the Black national anthem. Texans players were not on the field for either “The Star-Spangled Banner” or the Black national anthem.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a recent interview that players’ kneeling protests against racial injustice during the national anthem are “not about the flag," adding that he wishes the league listened to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sooner when it came to the matter. Goodell made the comments in an interview with former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho on his YouTube series "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man," that went live on Sunday. In the interview, Acho pressed the commissioner about a statement he made in early June apologizing for the league’s past handling of the kneeling...

    STEPHON TUITT Prediction: Lots and lots of his teammates will have a problem with it. Remember what happened when Alejandro Villanueva simply got caught in the open during the anthem three years ago? His Pittsburgh Steeler teammates threw him under the bus for not getting out of sight, and after a brief spike in Villanueva jersey sales, the lineman ended up issuing a public apology.Stephon Tuitt has decided to dispense with the whole apology approach up front. In fact, Tuitt invites anyone who objects to perform an unnatural act on themselves: Also I’m not kneeling for the flag and screw...
