From Friday night in suburban Indianapolis to Sunday afternoon in Chicago, sports medics had their hands full last weekend — with the athletes being the least of their worries.
HOUSTON | The Houston Texans' once-promising season has devolved into a disaster.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. | On the surface, this would seem like an easy one for the Bears. They're trying to get back to winning against a team that hasn't won a game all season.
CHICAGO | At 5-foot-11 and 215 pounds, Pierre Thomas looks like a high school running back.
SAN FRANCISCO | Trent Richardson practiced all of twice with his new team before helping lead Indianapolis to what Colts coach Chuck Pagano already considers a signature win.
PITTSBURGH | The meeting was intimate and brief. Following his team's first 0-2 start in more than a decade, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and safety Ryan Clark huddled with remaining players from the club's last Super Bowl title in 2009 and tried to plot a course forward.
Amid the hysteria permeating Major League Baseball's Biogenesis scandal, the media largely continues to ignore the 600-pound gorilla sitting in the room.
ATLANTA | The Falcons are well aware of just how desperate this city is for its first Super Bowl championship.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. | You again!
Who shall it be now?
MEMPHIS, Tenn. | Iowa State and Tulsa don't necessarily think of the Liberty Bowl as a rematch, even though they faced each other Sept. 1 in the season opener for both teams.
INDIANAPOLIS | Chuck Pagano beat the traffic and a blizzard into work Wednesday morning — all in an effort to beat the Texans.
INDIANAPOLIS | Andrew Luck's dynamic rookie season is even more impressive when considering that most of the people he's throwing to are new to the NFL, too.
It's the time of year when the men are separated from the boys in the NFL.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. | Indiana will have to settle for milestones other than a bowl game to show the team's improvement this season.
CHICAGO | The Bears offense appears to be back in sync, even if the same might not be true of quarterback Jay Cutler and his offensive coordinator.
IRVING, Texas | The Dallas Cowboys certainly picked a bad time for an awful game, one that will stick with them for an extended period.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. | Mike Tomlin needed only two words to describe the guy who ripped apart the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense in the Mile High City.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. | The Bears are still looking for a little more from their offense with a game left in the preseason.
SOUTH BEND | Brian Kelly steps into his third season at Notre Dame looking for a quarterback who can run his spread offense. Sure sounds familiar.
