League spokesman Michael Signora says in a statement emailed Monday that "an error by the clock operator" after a touchback allowed extra time to run off, and "it is the responsibility of the side judge to supervise the timing of the game." The statement adds: "Had the side judge or any of the other six on-field officials noticed the timing error, they could have corrected it." The...

But the Steelers’ website makes clear that the team believes the Patriots were in control of the audio problems the Steelers’ coaches were having. An article on the Steelers’ website says that the audio communications problems started and stopped repeatedly — always stopping when a league official came down to the sideline to deal with the matter, then starting up again when the league official left the sideline area....

The Patriots' coach-to-coach headsets were shut off intermittently, the NFL told Tafoya. NFL head of security Jeff Miller was shown on camera while Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth were discussing the mishap. Blake Jones, NFL director of football operations, went down to the field to help out with the headsets. The league described the reception problem as "intermittent" and it was believed to be resolved early in the second quarter. Because it was not a complete system failure, New England's coaches were not required to...

In 1921, he was named Akron’s coach, and so when the APFA was re-named the National Football League in 1922, Pollard became the NFL’s first African-American...

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has decided that fans are not getting their money’s worth from the nation’s most popular spectator sport. “You want to add excitement with every play,” said the concerned commissioner of the 256 regular season games plus playoff contests played this season. His solution–make extra points automatic. But if a team decides to go for 2 and fails, the gimmie extra point will be taken away, leaving a 6 rather than 7 point score. In the 2013 regular season exactly 5 extra point tries failed. Five! In short, the extra point is already automatic. And when a...

Paulson whiffed, and Sanders was slammed for a 2-yard...
