Factoid: Corey Davis

Thinking about the Titans versus Jaguars game, I wondered how favorably to slot Corey Davis. On the one hand, he's Tennessee's No. 1, and the team's only consistently involved wide receiver. On the other hand, he's facing a defense that tends to play really well against wide receivers.   more »

Trivia: December 4, 2018

Wearing their throwback uniforms, the Dolphins also on Sunday painted their home field to look like the Orange Bowl did in the distant past, with orange diamonds on an aqua background.
