Owners, players meet in mediation over the weekend… The NFL and NFLPA met with a federal mediator for upwards of 20 hours over the past three days, with at least four more days of talks scheduled. The mediator requested that both sides keep a vow of silence regarding the talks, and both sides have honored that request to this point.

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
