  • Patriots' favored status over Texans reaches rarefied air for gamblers

    January 15, 2017 10:59 AM 11

    As soon as time expired on the Houston Texans’ wild-card-round playoff victory over the Oakland Raiders last week, a humbling slap of reality smacked them in the face. Not only do the Texans find themselves in the freezing environs of Foxborough, Mass., where the New England Patriots and four-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady await them Saturday night

  • Badou Jack, James DeGale unable to unify belts as fight ends in draw

    January 15, 2017 10:31 AM 13

    NEW YORK -- James DeGale and Badou Jack, with so much on the line in the first major bout of the year, put on a tremendous fight with enormous stakes. They were meeting to unify their super middleweight world titles and to earn recognition as the clear-cut best 168-pound fighter in the world. And now they probably will have to do it again after the action-packed

In outlasting the Houston Texans, 34-16, the Patriots set an N.F.L. record for conference dominance and used a rare performance by a running back to get it. The Patriots

  • Now it gets real for the Patriots: Two more wins to title No. 5

    January 15, 2017 6:28 AM 13

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Gillette Stadium soundtrack during TV timeouts is ripped from a 1980s middle school dance, but somehow it fits. As The Outfield wails that they don't wanna lose your love tonight, Rick Astley swears he's never gonna give you up and The Knack thumps out an ode to their Sharona, it can feel as if the New England Patriots have been playing

  • Big-play Falcons pose big problems for Seahawks' vulnerable secondary

    January 15, 2017 5:04 AM 8

    Seattle Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia and Atlanta Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure take an in-depth look at Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game in Atlanta (4:35 p.m. ET, Fox).

  • Earl Thomas calls out Tom Brady on Twitter

    January 15, 2017 4:33 AM 7

    Earl Thomas does not think too highly of the AFC. While Thomas was presumably watching Brock Osweiler throw the Texans out of the playoffs agaisnt the Patriots, the injured Seahawks safety fired off a hot take that would make Skip Bayless blush. Yes, the NFC West has been much better than the AFC East of late but that wasn't always the case. There was a time not too long ago when the NFC West was the worst
