One of the best matchups of the weekend has to be football’s version of the “Running of the Bulls,” a ground-and-pound contest between Texans RB Arian Foster and Raiders RB Darren McFadden.
There was a point in the first half of Monday night’s Colts-Buccaneers game when cameras spotted Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis both on the sidelines during a Tampa Bay possession. And it was no surprise that Josh Freeman used that opportunity to start throwing the football deep.

Both players, who were involved in off-field issues during the lockout, were getting their first chance to give information and answer questions from NFL Security and league officials. Both have had problems in the past, and thus as “repeat offenders” to some degree could face league discipline. But Britt’s charges were lessened or dropped and Talib is not even scheduled to go to trial until after the season and he turned the opportunity to plea to much lesser misdemeanor charges in […]
