    Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks wasted no time naming Sam Darnold the team’s starting quarterback following Sunday’s 23-10 victory against the Denver Broncos. On Monday — the eve of the Panthers’ Week 13 bye — Wilks explained why anointing Darnold was a no-brainer. “It is not so much a quick decision. It was more like a quick announcement,” Wilks said. “There were a lot of times that ...

    If it wasn’t for a missed extra point, the Eagles would have beaten the Packers, 41-33, on Sunday night, which, of course, was their winning score in Super Bowl LII. While it may be a reach to connect the two games in many ways, the Eagles’ offensive performance against Green Bay brought back memories of the 2017 team that could produce yards and points at will, no more impressive than in that ...

    The streaking Cincinnati Bengals are set to get star wideout Ja'Marr Chase back for their Week 13 game, NFL Network reported Monday. Chase returned to practice last week but wasn't quite ready to play Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. He has missed the past four games. Chase is working his way back from a hip injury initially sustained in a 30-26 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Oct. 16. He then aggravated the injury in the first half of the Bengals' 35-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 23. After limping off the field, Chase returned to play in the second half but has not played since. Chase, 22, has 47 catches, 605 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns over seven games. He led the Bengals in all three categories before his injury, with Tee Higgins since passing him in receptions (50) and yards (712). Chase made the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2021, catching 81 passes for 1,455 yards and 13 touchdowns in 17 starts. The Bengals (7-4), who have won three in a row to vault into a tie for first in the AFC North, host the Kansas City Chiefs this week. --Field Level Media

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Nick Bosa got a hero’s welcome as he arrived at the 49ers’ sideline in the final minutes of Sunday’s eventual win over the New Orleans Saints. Their first shutout in three years was intact, courtesy of his fourth-and-goal sack. Minutes earlier, Dre Greenlaw and Talanoa Hufanga were the 49ers’ defensive heroes, with Greenlaw recovering a fumble at the 1-yard line after a ...

    More than a decade has come and gone since he last blasted a shoulder pad into anyone, last crumpled some luckless defender to the floor of an NFL stadium, last carried his helmet into that Hall of Fame sunset. You won't be surprised, but they are still putting Alan Faneca back together again. We were going over his surgeries on the phone the other day from Virginia Beach, where the great ...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Quarterback Sam Darnold, making his first start of the season under center, and the Carolina Panthers capitalized on an under-achieving Denver Broncos team at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday. In a 23-10 victory, Darnold protected the football well and led the Panthers to a home win — Steve Wilks’ third in as many tries as interim head coach — in a stadium draped in orange. ...
