    LOS ANGELES — A former tight end with the Dallas Cowboys was one of two hikers killed while rock climbing in Riverside County, California, authorities said Thursday. Gavin Escobar, 31, and Chelsea Walsh, 33, both of Huntington Beach, died Wednesday afternoon in Tahquitz Rock near Idyllwild, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said. Escobar was a Long Beach firefighter who previously ...

      BALTIMORE — As the Ravens continue to tinker and revamp their team, the offensive line remains perhaps the biggest question mark. Right now, the unit is a revolving door, even though it seemed to find some rhythm in Sunday’s 37-26 win over the New England Patriots. The Buffalo Bills will be a much bigger challenge because they have the No. 2 ranked run defense in the NFL led by Von Miller, ...

        COLUMBIA, S.C. — Five-hundred thousand dollars well spent. On a night normally reserved for digesting game plans, Thirsty Thursday deals and quite literally anything but Southeastern Conference football, South Carolina handled S.C. State, 50-10, in a game South Carolina administrators paid their willing visitors half-a-million dollars just to show up. Initially scheduled for Saturday, the ...

          LOS ANGELES — Matthew Stafford will not go into a "Monday Night Football" matchup against the San Francisco 49ers riding an obvious wave of production. The Rams quarterback did not throw a touchdown pass in last Sunday's victory over the Arizona Cardinals, the first time since the 2020 season — when Stafford played for the Detroit Lions — that the 14th-year pro was shut out. But Stafford and ...

            "Haunted" is never a word you want to hear yourself saying 23 years after the event, but that's the one former Huskies football coach Rick Neuheisel chose Tuesday. He was reliving UW's road game vs. UCLA in 1999 with Chuck Powell and Bucky Jacobsen on 93.3 KJR-FM, acutely aware that he let a trip to the Rose Bowl slip away. The contest took place at the Rose Bowl, where Washington has ...

              Shane Steichen often can find himself at the mercy of Jalen Hurts’ preparation. In the seconds leading into each play, when the Eagles offensive coordinator can no longer communicate through the headset and the defense starts hinting at what’s to come, he’s hoping his quarterback is finding the answers on his own. Luckily for Steichen, Hurts’ process has been quite good during the Eagles’ 3-0 ...

                If you watch NFL RedZone like me every Sunday, you’ll know there’s been a ton of late drama through the first three weeks. Eighteen of the 48 games have been decided by three or fewer points, the most in NFL history at this point. With only one spread over a touchdown this week, expect more of the same in the ultra-competitive, parity-driven NFL. Underdogs went 9-7 against the spread (ATS) in ...

                LOS ANGELES — To hell with the hassle. Matt Phillipi is going to see his UCLA Bruins play football, no matter the headaches. The hour or so spent in Friday afternoon traffic. The bus that will deposit him on the opposite side of the Rose Bowl from his tailgate, requiring a long walk. The late-night ride back to campus that might feel funereal if the Bruins lose. Philippi will endure it all to ...

                Ravens defensive tackle Michael Pierce underwent season-ending arm surgery Thursday, four days after he tore his biceps in the team’s Week 3 win over the New England Patriots. Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that Pierce was still uncertain whether he would undergo surgery or play through the injury this season. But on Thursday, Pierce shared on Instagram that he’d decided to have his arm ...

                An uptick. Improvement. It is what we needed, and got. After a poor two-week start to our 32nd season of NFL predictions in the Miami Herald, we bounced back with a solid Week 3 at 10-6 overall and 8-8 against the spread. We nailed our Upset of the Week with Dolphins beating Bills (“Aawwk!”) and had three other smaller outright upsets with wins by the Titans, Panthers and Cowboys. Four in one ...

                When Georgia Tech announced their dismissals in a news release Monday, school President Ángel Cabrera praised both athletic director Todd Stansbury and football coach Geoff Collins in statements for their efforts on behalf of the institute. He noted Collins’ commitment to his players. He said of Stansbury that the Tech alumnus is and will always be an admired and respected member of the Tech ...

                CINCINNATI — It was leaning in this direction as the short week progressed for the Miami Dolphins. Now, it indeed appears to be happening, barring a setback. Tagovailoa, officially listed as questionable for Miami entering Thursday for the night game in Cincinnati, is expected to be ready to go and play against the Bengals, a league source confirmed to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Outkick ...

                With the first month of the college football season over, let’s take a step back to evaluate where some of the state’s major programs are entering October. Here are five of the most pressing questions from across the state: 1. Is Florida State for real? The No. 23 Seminoles are 4-0 and absolutely deserving of their ranking. FSU has blown bad teams (Duquesne, Boston College), beaten Louisville ...

                Here's a look back at Week 3's action, and fantasy advice for the week ahead: WEEK 3 RECAP Browns 29, Steelers 17: Beyond possibly making the catch of the season on Thursday Night Football against Cleveland, George Pickens has been as advertised. It just hasn’t shown up in the box score yet. This will likely change when Pittsburgh switches out Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback for fellow rookie ...

                Florida State officials remain confident that the Seminoles’ football game against Wake Forest will kick off Saturday at 3:30 p.m. without delays. The game’s status has been in question after Hurricane Ian ravaged Florida Wednesday and Thursday. “Our thoughts and prayers at this time are with all those impacted by Hurricane Ian,” FSU athletics director Michael Alford said in a statement ...

                The Los Angeles Times will highlight the top college football games worth watching each week. Here's a rundown of seven games in Week 5 of the 2022 season that should be worth your viewing time. All times are Pacific.

                Tom Brady remembers playing NFL games after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and Sept. 11. That’s why he was hopeful the Bucs could play the Chiefs on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium to at least bring some relief and entertainment to Southwest Florida, which has been impacted so severely by Hurricane Ian. The NFL decided Thursday that the game will be played as scheduled at 8:25 p.m. in ...

                KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ninety-four times in his University of Missouri career, Harrison Mevis had attempted either a point after touchdown (82) or field goal inside the 30-yard line (12); 94 times before, he had made the kick. One hundred eighty-six times previously in his collegiate career at Stanford and Mizzou, Nathaniel Peat had either run the football (163) or caught a pass (23); 185 of those ...

                PITTSBURGH — Mike Tomlin set a record for clichés Tuesday during a 45-second sound bite, leaving no doubt he has no plans to bench Mitch Trubisky for Kenny Pickett or take the play-calling from Matt Canada. "We're not going to blow in the wind. The last couple of games haven't unfolded the way that we would like, but we're in a no-blink business, particularly if we believe in what it is that ...

                In the backyard of a newly built townhouse in East Garfield Park on Sept. 13, a group of junior high and high school kids from Marillac St. Vincent Family Services peppered Eddie Jackson with questions. The Chicago Bears safety handled it with the swagger of someone returning a pick-six. Jackson got into the real topics at the event promoting the construction of the Harrison Row Townhomes, an ...

                Pardon the Los Angeles Rams for not buying into the notion that their NFC West rivals are vulnerable. It seemed that way last season when the Rams came to Levi’s Stadium to face the 49ers, and they exited with a resounding 31-10 defeat on Nov. 15. It turned the 49ers’ season around and was a slap in the face to the Rams, who after the reality check went on to lose to Green Bay before winning ...

                Cooper Rush’s remarkable stay as Dallas Cowboys quarterback will likely last for one or two more games. Dak Prescott, the team’s franchise quarterback who missed missed the past two games after undergoing surgery to repair with a fractured right thumb, got the stitches out Monday and wouldn’t rule out playing Sunday against the Washington Commanders. But a return either Oct. 9 at the Los ...
