  • Top 3 remain the same in AP Pro32 rankings

    NEW YORK (AP) — There was no change in the top three spots in the latest AP Pro32 power rankings. That's hardly a surprise since the Seattle Seahawks, Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos all had byes last week. Seattle again had nine first-place votes from the 12-member media panel that regularly covers the league. The Seahawks will travel...

  • NFL has laundry list of verboten celebrations

    Dancing Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, shuffling Ickey Woods and the group high-fiving Fun Bunch? Their entertaining touchdown celebrations would be illegal in today's NFL. Though the league rulebook has some very specific examples of what constitutes a penalty, the gray area is as wide as ever. Take, for example, Husain Abdullah's drop to his...

  • NFL says Kansas City's Abdullah should not have been penalized for prayer

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The NFL said Tuesday that Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah should not have been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct when he dropped to his knees in prayer after an interception. The league's rule book prohibits players from celebrating while on the ground, but spokesman Michael Signora wrote in an email Tuesday...

  • Blog: Next Oakland Raiders coach could have ties to Broncos quarterback

    The Raiders are some kind of mess. They are when the dishwasher and sink are full, the dog didn't get a walk, and the plumbing fails. Good for the Broncos, bummer for football fans who remember Oakland football as the NFL blueprint. The Raiders fired former Broncos coordinator Dennis Allen as their head coach on Monday. We will consider this...

  • Seattle TE Zach Miller undergoes ankle surgery

    RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks will be without tight end Zach Miller for at least a few weeks after he underwent ankle surgery during the team's bye week. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Miller had been bothered by "loose bodies" in the ankle for weeks and instead of trying to play through pain that was likely to get...

  • ICYMI: Saints' fake punt, other NFL Week 4 topics

    Let the second-guessing begin. Saints coach Sean Payton opted to have his punter — yes, his punter — try to throw a pass, instead of a guy by the name of Drew Brees. Eagles coach Chip Kelly decided to let Nick Foles throw a pair of passes from inside the 2-yard line, instead of giving the football to LeSean McCoy on the ground. Jets coach...

  • As Fox says, Broncos aren't a well-oiled machine

    DENVER — In the aftermath of another letdown against the Seattle Seahawks, Denver coach John Fox was asked if he could nevertheless take some positives out of the Broncos losing in overtime rather than getting blown out as they did in the Super Bowl. "Do you mean, is there a moral victory? The answer to that would be...

    Willie Colon is ready to rumble. The New York Jets right guard will see a lot of Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh on Sunday when their teams square off at MetLife Stadium. And, it wouldn't stun anyone if the two tangled a bit at some point. Suh, of course, has a reputation to play a bit, well, chippy at times. "Really?" Colon...

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — The video of Ray Rice punching his fiancee inside a casino elevator was sent to NFL headquarters to the attention of league security chief Jeffrey Miller in April, a law enforcement official says.

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Vince Wilfork has played only two career games in Kansas City.

"They're probably one of the loudest, between them and Seattle, are the loudest stadiums I've ever played in," Wilfork said...

  • Domestic violence in US: Data tells complex story

    For weeks, amid allegations involving several NFL players, domestic violence has been the focus of intense national attention. Does the turmoil reflect a worsening epidemic of domestic violence, or has the U.S. in fact made great strides to curtail it? The answer is complicated. On one hand, domestic violence committed by intimate partners —...

"It looks like it's getting better and better," coach Bruce Arians said after Palmer threw in Wednesday's workout. "He'll throw it as treatment...

  • Wes Welker isn't holding back at all

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Anyone who thought Wes Welker was going to hold back following his third concussion in nine months was mistaken. Denver's diminutive slot receiver played 65 percent of the offensive snaps and ran right into the teeth of Seattle's stout secondary in the Broncos' 26-20 loss in overtime in his return from a two-game...

  • Victims of Broncos' 2013 injury epidemic return

      ENGLEWOOD — The Denver Broncos didn't exactly hit their bye week in full stride. There are issues all around. But some promising signs have emerged, too, like the play of all those starters who missed the Super Bowl. The Broncos made their run last year without left tackle Ryan Clady, whose foot injury sidelined him in Week 2 and...

  • Seahawks on top of AP Pro32 rankings

    NEW YORK (AP) — Russell Wilson's clutch plays in overtime helped the Seattle Seahawks fend off Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

"From his hands to his feet, Russell Wilson is doing it all...

  • Klee: Despite loss to Seahawks, Broncos answer the burning question

    SEATTLE — Wearing a business suit that costs more than a teenager's first car, John Elway found Demaryius Thomas leaning against a wall. The Broncos' boss dealt DT a fist bump. Over on the defensive side of the too-small locker room at CenturyLink Field, John Fox first stopped at Rahim Moore's locker, then DeMarcus Ware's, then Aqib Talib's,...

  • Broncos dismiss talk of moral victory at Seattle

    ENGLEWOOD — John Fox doesn't want to hear about moral victories. Sure, there were plenty of positives to take from Denver's 26-20 overtime loss at Seattle on Sunday that was such a far cry from the shellacking the Broncos endured in the Super Bowl. Emmanuel Sanders' career day. Wes Welker's return. Peyton Manning's poise. Demaryius Thomas'...

  • Seahawks enter bye week after OT thriller

    RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The defensive performance Pete Carroll got from his Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl last February led to the most lopsided championship game in more than 20 years. Even though the margin was smaller and overtime was necessary, Carroll came away from Sunday's 26-20 overtime win over Denver believing the Seahawks played...

  • Kicking game: It is called football, after all

    In the biggest game of the NFL season so far, the winning coach said the game wasn't decided by superstars Peyton Manning, Marshawn Lynch or Richard Sherman.

    SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Seahawks reserve defensive back DeShawn Shead won twice on Sunday.

The stadium had cleared out with the exception of Shead...

    By the time the typical player signs an NFL contract, around 100 scouts, coaches and general managers have pored over his history.

  • Cowboys, Eagles and Ravens pull off comeback wins

    Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys were big-time comeback kids in Week 3 of the NFL season. So were Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Baltimore Ravens, too. Peyton Manning rallied the Denver Broncos back in a Super Bowl rematch, but Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks came up with the victory — as they did seven months ago on...

  • Ramsey: Montee Ball and Broncos fizzle on the ground

    SEATTLE - The Denver Broncos will struggle to return to the Super Bowl with an offense hampered by three running backs who all should be backups. No worthy featured back resides on the roster. Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson would serve as decent relievers to a legit starter. Defenses tenderized by Peyton Manning should be...

  • Cardinals go to 3-0 with 23-14 victory over 49ers

    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals were supposed to backslide with the loss of starting quarterback Carson Palmer. Quite the opposite has happened. For the second week in a row, backup Drew Stanton directed the Cardinals to victory, this time a 24-13 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. The win on Sunday left Arizona 3-0 and alone...
