AP source: Cowboys to release QB Romo when NFL year begins

BY SCHUYLER DIXON DALLAS (AP) — Tony Romo’s star-crossed career as the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys will soon be over. A person with knowledge of the decision tells The Associated Press that the Cowboys will release Romo when the NFL year opens on Thursday.

HOUSTON (AP) — Tom Brady doesn’t want to talk about “Deflategate.” He’d rather reflect on a night he will never forget and how much it meant to his mother.

Not only did Seattle (6-2-1) force Tom Brady into his first interception this season , but it kept him without a passing touchdown for the first time in 2016 and denied the Patriots an opportunity to tie the game with a...

Packers finally shake off Seahawks with 27-17 win

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — All week long, the Green Bay Packers did their best to disregard the noise about their recent, disheartening history with the Seattle Seahawks. A 27-17 win over Seattle on Sunday night in a rematch of last January’s NFC championship game left the Packers with a reason to smile. This time, the Packers finished strong in a bruising, physical contest with the Seahawks. “It doesn’t count for anything more than a win, but it is probably one of the more satisfying regular-season wins that we’ve had, just to get that monkey off our back of...
