Indy escapes Atlanta with a much-needed 24-21 win.

Ole Miss handed LSU its third straight loss.

Ole Miss handed LSU a 38-17 beat down and piled a third consecutive loss on the backs of the Tigers. After starting 7-0, those three losses look brutally bad. It's also the first time in the Les Miles era that LSU has dropped three in a row. → Read More

With win over Titans, Jags are in the playoff race.

With their 19-13 win over the Titans Thursday, the Jaguars have won back-to-back games for the first time since Weeks 12-14 of the 2013 season. All of a sudden, Jacksonville is near the top of the AFC South and in contention for a spot in the postseason. → Read More

Bears finally close out a solid victory on the road.

Steelers lose to Bengals (and lose Bell) in Big Ben's return.

Despite Ben Roethlisberger's return Sunday, the Steelers fell to the still-undefeated Bengals, 16-10, in a down-to-the-wire battle reminiscent of defensively dominant AFC North times of yore. The loss of Le'Veon Bell added injury to insult. → Read More
