Adam Vinatieri is one of the great kickers in football history with Super Bowl rings and Pro Bowl invitations to prove it. But it was tough sledding for him -- and everyone else -- at New Era Field. A 32-yard field goal would normally be automatic for him, but not Sunday. Not in the snow. He really had no chance. https://twitter.com/NEWS4_NICK/status/9399232832…

While Colts coach Chuck Pagano tried to simulate what the elements might be like by practicing outside Thursday and also having music played to h…

If the Bills get to 9-7, the New York…

First off, let's start with the name. No, Cap Capi's first name isn't actually "Cap." That's a nickname given to him a long time ago by a Pop Warner coach who started off referring to Capi by his last name, and then evenually abbreviated that.
