The Young Dinosaur

After back-to-back losing seasons for the first time as New York Giants head coach, 68-year-old Tom Coughlin had no interest in walking away from coaching. He’s even less interested in changing his ways

Awaiting Peyton’s Decision

Listening to John Elway talk about Peyton Manning and seeing his coldhearted dealings with John Fox, I was reminded of the Packers’ circumstances with Brett Favre in 2008. As stoic as Manning is, everyone likes to be recruited

Out of the Shadows

Just a few months after he thought his career might be over, Justin Forsett ran for a career-high 182 yards in the Ravens’ win over the Saints on Monday. Now on his fifth team in seven years, this journeyman could make a trip to the Pro Bowl

Waging Four Battles and Relying on Joe Cool

The Ray Rice scandal rocked the NFL, but not the Ravens’ locker room.

A look at how Joe Flacco has kept Baltimore on track—and how the team upgraded at running back

Ben Tate: No Pain, No Gain

The Texans’ season is a lost cause, but there’s one reason to stick with them: a running back who’s playing through the agony of four broken ribs—and enduring acupuncture to cope—to prove he’s worth a free-agent investment

What Can This Brown Do? A Lot

Cleveland may turn to its fourth different starting quarterback of 2013 this weekend, but no matter to Josh Gordon: the rapidly ascending and record-setting receiver has shown an ability to put up yards and create big plays no matter who's throwing him the ball

So Happy Together

The Saints' offense is getting overlooked in the team's 2013 revival, as most focus on Rob Ryan and the defense. But the reunited pairing leading a revitalized attack, the symbiotic coach and quarterback, are having just as much of an impact

What a Difference a Coach Makes

Good coaching has always been important in the NFL. But 2013, more than ever, has emphasized how the man running the sideline can revive—or destroy—a team

‘Tough to Handle’

A Texans season in which little has gone right got a whole lot worse when coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the field at halftime of the Colts game, leaving a stunned locker room to wonder what’s next

The Highs, and Very Low Lows, of Week 9

It was an NFL weekend we'll never forget, for better and for worse. It was a weekend of record performances and dazzling plays, but our thoughts are with two coaches in somber situations

What’s Wrong With Matt?

Can Matt Schaub pull himself out of the rut and save the Texans’ season (and maybe his job)? A veteran quarterback explains the mental toll of mistakes—how they can build on one another and ruin a player’s confidence
