  • We could be witnessing the start of a dynasty in Philadelphia

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports9 hrs ago

    The Philadelphia Eagles have started off the 2014 season with two straight victories, but they've done it in a very unique way. In both games the Eagles have overcome a two score deficit in the second half, and ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio is impressed because fans have yet to see Philadelphia at its best for 60 minutes. With the increasing additions of players that fit his system - a la Darren Sproles - Chip Kelly is building a franchise that Florio thinks could be a perennial factor at the top of the NFC playoff tree.

  • Major obstacle in Jaguars' eventual transition to Blake Bortles

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports9 hrs ago

    ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio answers calls and tweets from fans, including how the Jaguars will handle the transition to Blake Bortles with Chad Henne delivering mediocre production at quarterback. Over Jacksonville's first two games - both of which were double-digit losses - Henne has completed just 54 percent of passes with the first-round pick looking on from the sidelines. The problem, however, is the Jaguars' inability to protect Bortles, who represents a significant investment for the franchise.

  • Do playoff-bound Angels have any weaknesses?

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports9 hrs ago

    The Angels have essentially had the AL West wrapped up for weeks now, but it was Monday’s win over the Mariners that officially put them into the postseason, as they became the first team this year to clinch a berth.

    It will be the Angels’ first trip to the postseason in five years. They lost in the ALCS in 2009, which concluded a run in which they went to the postseason six times in eight years.

    Rookie Matt Shoemaker got the victory in an 8-1 game Monday, taking a shutout into the eighth inning before giving up a run and leaving with a minor injury sustained on a grounder up the middle. He improved to 16-4 with a 3.04 ERA on the season.

    The other bad news was that Albert Pujols left the game with a mild hamstring injury that he might need to rest for a few days. The Angels got homers from David Freese and Brennan Boesch in the rout.

    Greg Norman posted on social media Saturday night that he nearly severed his left hand in a chainsaw accident.

    In a caption on an Instagram post, he wrote: “Working with a chainsaw ALWAYS be respectful of the unexpected. I was one lucky man today. Damaged, but not down & out. Still have left hand.”

    Golf Channel insider Tim Rosaforte reported that Norman, 59, had undergone surgery to repair nerve damage and sustained no damage to his arteries or tendons.

    On Sunday morning, Norman posted that he was “all well” the day after the accident and thanked fans for the support and well wishes.

    Last week, Norman posted a picture of himself trimming a small tree, with the caption: “Time to trim the sea grapes today. Never ask someone to do something that you can do yourself. Love to work!”
