Despite blinding sunlight blaring through the windows at AT&T Stadium that cost his team dearly in last week's 23-17 playoff loss to the 49ers , Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he's absolutely not considering putting up any kind of shades or curtains over those windows in the future. As bad as things were for the Cowboys in Sunday's loss, it was also a bad day for the $1.15 billion AT&T Stadium. On the Cowboys' final drive before halftime, Dak Prescott found an open Cedrick Wilson on a play that should have put them in field goal position. Instead, Wilson was blinded by the sun and never even touched the ball, saying after the game that he couldn't see the ball or Prescott because of the sun.

Could a return home to New York be in store for former Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores? The New York Giants are expected to interview Flores, according to an ESPN Friday report . Flores, a Brooklyn native, has already been interviewed by the Chicago Bears for their head coaching vacancy and is a name that has been mentioned in connection to the Houston Texans’ opening, as well. Flores was fired on Jan. 10 after three seasons with the Dolphins, when the team went 24-25. His dismissal was a surprise around the NFL as he took over a roster devoid of talent in 2019 and squeezed five wins out of the team before then producing back-to-back winning seasons in 2020 and 2021. Dolphins owner Steve Ross attributed the decision to Flores’ methods of communication and collaboration within the organization. The Dolphins have since lined up at least seven known interviews : Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, Dallas Cowboys … [Read more...] about Could ex-Dolphins coach Brian Flores return home to New York?

Passed over several times for head coaching jobs over the past few seasons, Kansas City offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy is again a hot commodity as the Chiefs prepare for a divisional-round matchup with the Bills on Sunday night. He spoke virtually with the Jaguars, Jets, Chargers, Falcons and Lions about their openings last season, and he has been in touch with the Broncos about their job this season. “All of that stuff is going to take care of itself,” he said. “And do not get me wrong, I am blessed and I am fortunate to be a part of that chatter, to be a part of some of the things that are taking place, but right now my focus is to make sure that we are ready to play a 60-minute game where we can go out there and play hard and play fast.” Perhaps the biggest impediment to Bieniemy landing a top job the past couple of years has been his own success. The Chiefs have reached the AFC Championship Game for three years in a row and two straight Super Bowls, which means they’ve … [Read more...] about Chiefs coordinator Eric Bieniemy once again hot coach commodity
NEW ORLEANS — Before Sean Payton took his first head coaching job in New Orleans in 2006, the Saints had a grand total of one playoff victory since their founding in 1967. The standard will be considerably higher for the next head coach in the Big Easy. Payton, whose 16-year tenure with the club included its only Super Bowl championship and also a one-season suspension stemming from the NFL’s bounty investigation, is leaving coaching — for now. Payton informed the team on Tuesday that he is leaving his first and only NFL head coaching job with a 152-89 regular-season record — and nine playoff appearances — in 15 seasons. The 2009 Saints won the NFL title. “I don’t like the word retirement,” Payton said Tuesday afternoon at an announcement attended by owner Gayle Benson, top management and assistant coaches. “I still have a vision for doing things in football. And I’ll be honest with you, that might be coaching again at some point. I don’t think it’s this year, I think … [Read more...] about Sean Payton to step down as Saints coach after 16 years
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers are hoping their recent regular-season dominance over the Los Angeles Rams extends to the playoffs. The Niners have swept the season series against the Rams the past three seasons and take a six-game winning streak in the series into the NFC title game on Sunday. READ MORE: San Francisco Supervisors Advance Resolution Apologizing To Chinese Community Over Past Atrocities A look at past history suggests that it’s no sure thing regular-season dominance carries over into the playoffs. This will be the 24th time in the Super Bowl era that division rivals will meet in the postseason following a regular-season sweep. The team that won the two regular-season games is 14-9 in the playoff rematch — though just last year, Tampa Bay won a divisional-round game at New Orleans on the way to a Super Bowl title. The Rams-49ers matchup is the fourth time a team came into the playoff matchup on a winning streak of at least six games in the … [Read more...] about 49ers Hope to Keep Streak of Dominance Against Rams Alive in NFC Title Matchup
3 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have won six straight AFC West titles, something never before accomplished, and will be hosting a record fourth consecutive conference championship game when Cincinnati visits Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. They've been to the past two Super Bowls. Won a championship. Set so many league-best marks behind the unparalleled play of Patrick Mahomes and the brilliant coaching of Andy Reid that the rest of the NFL has ample reason to be jealous. So, are the Chiefs following in the footsteps of the Patriots as the next football dynasty? Or, are they just the latest “it” team that everyone wants to watch? “I think it was 2008 or 2009 that (Chiefs chairman) Clark Hunt made the statement that we're going to strive to create an organization that consistently competes for championships,” team president Mark Donovan recalled this week, “and here we are, hosting our fourth straight championship.

By Michael Hurley , CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — It’s a bit illogical for the most valuable player in the NFL to have such a difficult time winning Super Bowls. Alas, the gift of greatness has been an onerous burden for quite some time. And it appears as though the curse of winning the NFL MVP Award will live on for another year. While we don’t know that Aaron Rodgers will take home the hardware as the NFL MVP this year, all signs are pointing that way. He didn’t have the volume stats of Tom Brady, and he missed a game due to COVID, but Rodgers’ 37 touchdowns and seven interceptions to go with a 13-3 record will seemingly be enough for him to win the award for the fourth time of his career. ( Rodgers received 32 of 36 votes in a test poll , which likely provides a good representation of what to expect from the actual vote itself.) Unfortunately for Rodgers, it will also mark the fourth time that he’s won the award in a year that did not end with a Super Bowl parade. In … [Read more...] about Aaron Rodgers’ Playoff Loss Means NFL MVP Curse (Likely) Lives On For Another Year
