  • Scotty McCreery Sings National Anthem Before Denver Broncos Game

    Scotty McCreery was given the dutiful task of singing the National Anthem before the Denver Broncos vs. New York Giants game on Sunday (Oct. 15), and he certainly delivered. The country singer took to the turf at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver before the big game to perform an understated rendition of the anthem, standing before a giant American flag spread out on the field. McCreery brought his deep voice and country twang to the famed song, sounding calm and steady as he hit the big notes in front of massive crowd of 76,000 fans inside the packed stadium. The singer had a tall order to fill, but he did so modestly and with grace, performing an honorable rendition of the challenging

  • Boise State stifles Penny, beats No. 19 San Diego St. 31-14

    Alexander Mattison ran for 128 yards and a touchdown and Boise State's defense kept star running back Rashaad Penny in check to beat No. 19 San Diego State 31-14 on Saturday night. Penny was limited to 53 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. It was his first game under 100 yards rushing this season for the Aztecs (6-1, 2-1 Mountain West). Avery Williams returned a punt 53 yards for Boise State's first touchdown, and less than two minutes later, Kekaula Kaniho returned a fumble by SDSU quarterback Christian Chapman 34 yards for a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. It was the start of an overwhelming performance for Boise State (4-2, 2-0) on defense. The Broncos had 12 tackles for a loss, including

  • Fantasy football start/sit Week 6: What to do with Eli Manning

    New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has put up some decent fantasy numbers in 2017. He may, however, be without three of his top targets heading into Week 6. Odell Beckham Jr., Dwayne Harris, and Sterling Shepard are all dealing with injuries. Fantasy impact: Not only is Manning going to be super shorthanded going into Sunday’s game, he’s also facing the Denver Broncos. A receiving corps full of bench players plus a top defense on the opposite side of the football is not good. Sure, maybe Manning has a few tricks up his sleeve, but nobody should count on him driving the team to a huge win on the road. The Giants haven’t been able to win a game with everyone healthy. Don’t be surprised if

  • What’s been happening with Andrew Luck?

    The Indianapolis Colts are still without Andrew Luck after the quarterback underwent surgery in January. Recently acquired passer Jacoby Brissett has played well as the team’s starter in Luck’s place, but the Colts are undeniably worse without the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL draft on the field. His absence has been somewhat of a mystery. While Luck’s surgery was described by Colts owner Jim Irsay as an outpatient procedure that wouldn’t threaten the 2017 regular season, it has clearly become a more significant issue than that. Luck has yet to play this season. But the problem for Luck began more than two years ago in a game against the Tennessee Titans. Here’s Luck’s injury history since: Sept.

  • FANTASY PLAYS: The ripple effects of Aaron Rodgers' injury

    The prime topic of conversation around fantasy football this week is clear: How does the broken collarbone injury for Aaron Rodgers affect the Packers and fantasy football for the rest of this season? Rodgers' injury not only affects those who have him on their fantasy team, but also those who have Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, and Ty Montgomery on their rosters. The Packers have one of the best offenses in football but will now be relegated to hoping that a little-known backup, Brett Hundley, can hold down the fort. That seems unlikely. Here are some possible replacement quarterbacks and other players that may be available in your league and are realistic targets: JOSH MCCOWN, QB,

  • NFL Week 6 live: News and notes from around the league

    CHARGERS (1-4) AT OAKLAND RAIDERS (2-3) When Chargers have the ball The Chargers haven’t been able to consistently run the ball, a problem that could lead to a frustrated, red-faced and hurried Philip Rivers. Oakland rush end Khalil Mack is one of the NFL’s best, and though the Chargers’ pass blocking has been admirable, it could use some relief on Sunday in the form of a run game. The Raiders are allowing more than 124 yards rushing per game this season, giving Melvin Gordon an opportunity to build on his first 100-yard game this season. If Gordon can run the ball consistently, Rivers can take advantage of a struggling Oakland secondary. Hunter Henry needs to keep his place as the Chargers’

  • NFL Week 6: Falcons, Broncos suffer huge upsets as double-digit favorites

    There were supposed to be a pair of locks on Sunday: The Atlanta Falcons over the Miami Dolphins and the Denver Broncos over the woeful New York Giants . Vegas had both teams set at -12, according to our SportsLine, and looked ready to roll over two struggling teams. However, chaos reared its ugly head, as the Dolphins stormed back from a 17-point deficit and the Giants utterly outplayed the Broncos for 60 minutes. Both teams lost. Unfortunately for the favorites, they were both shown why games aren't played on paper. The Broncos in particular looked like they matched up to the Giants extremely well. With one of the best run defenses in the league going up against the non-existent Giants running

  • Alan Branch sees 22 snaps vs. Jets after being benched last week

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Alan Branch had a pretty significant change in mentality Sunday from the one he took into his team's last game down in Tampa.  "My mentality was there was an opportunity I was going to play in the game rather than watching on TV," he said. "I was ready for the game rather than not be here at all." Branch was a healthy scratch for the Patriots win against the Bucs in Week 5. He didn't even make the trip. But he was back in uniform and on the field for Sunday's24-17 win at MetLife Stadium, playing in 22 snaps -- his second-highest snap total after the 42 he saw in Week 1 -- and was credited with one tackle for a loss in the second quarter.  "I was really anxious," Branch

    Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer Close Follow on Twitter Tedy Bruschi and Herm Edwards think the Broncos will win big at home against a broken Giants team.
