When Suzy Roth got off the phone after hearing that NFL players wanted to partner with her organization and treat foster children to a shopping spree, the first thing she did was look up the team’s phone number to find out if it was for real. “I thought, I cannot line up kids in foster care to go shop with Colts and find out it’s some practical joke or something,” Roth …

In 11 games, Gaines finished with 59 tackles, three forced fum…

Jordan Poyer, flying across the field for the Cleveland Browns to tackle a punt returner, didn't see it coming. A greasy, blindside wallop from a Tennessee Titans blocker buried Poyer in the grass.
