      KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As Patrick Mahomes settled in the pocket of a shotgun formation, he looked to his right, eyes briefly locking on wide receivers Marcus Kemp and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. He followed with an even quicker look to his left, spotting tight ends Noah Gray and Jody Fortson stationary on the end of the line of scrimmage. Eighteen games into the season, the quartet had combined for ...

        PHILADELPHIA — In 1917 — roughly 104 years before Nick Sirianni entered the NovaCare Complex, hopped on a Zoom call with a couple of dozen reporters, and flunked Public Speaking 101 — a scholar named Walter Brandenburg published a book called The Philosophy of Christian Being. Despite its thrilling title and themes, Brandenburg’s tome was not the Fifty Shades of Harry Potter: Inside Donald ...

          MEDIA, Pa. — In a region where everyone is decked out in Philadelphia Eagles gear, especially with the team headed to the Super Bowl for the second time in six seasons, Ed Kelce is easy to spot.

          MOBILE, Ala. — Princeton wide receiver Andrei Iosivas stood out this week against Power-5 school competition at the Senior Bowl, stopping on dimes, twisting in the air and catching almost everything. “I think it went well,” the 6-2, 212-pound Iosivas, who doubles as a decathlete and Ivy League track star, said Tuesday. “I was focused, I showed up.

          In sports as in life, sometimes you have to wait. There is a reason the phrase credited to medieval English writer William Langland in his circa 1370s poem “Piers Plowman” is still said all these centuries later: Patience is a virtue. That it might be rewarded is its value. Especially when the reward is great enough. So the Miami Dolphins waited for Vic Fangio. And waited. And then won. A ...

          As the Chiefs trudged to the end of another wretched season in 2012, a 2-14 fiasco, Andy Reid’s Philadelphia Eagles were on the way to a similarly miserable finish (4-12). Each team’s 2012 season, alas, was also underscored by off-field devastation: For the Chiefs, it was inextricably tethered to the horrifying murder of Kasi Perkins by linebacker Jovan Belcher and his subsequent suicide; ...

          DeMeco Ryans’ introduction as the Houston Texans coach brought him back to his early days as a 49ers assistant, and, specifically, to his mentorship of linebacker Fred Warner.

After all, Ryans went from a 10-year NFL linebacker to an entry-level coach, to becoming a head coach after just two seasons as the 49ers’ ...

          Jalen Hurts pondered for several seconds on Thursday when asked to recall his most memorable play from this season. Deep down, the Eagles quarterback already knew his answer. “The season’s not over yet,” Hurts said. He simultaneously flashed a sly smile, briefly breaking from his stoic persona.
