    Sean Payton is returning to the sideline after a year in the broadcast studio. The Super Bowl-winning head coach of the New Orleans Saints will work one more week for Fox Sports as an analyst at the Super Bowl before diving into his new job as head coach of the Denver Broncos. Payton is bringing an old-school way of running things to Denver and that's going to mean some changes for Russell Wilson.

      Mike Pereira knows the pressure Carl Cheffers and his officiating crew will be under during Super Bowl 57 between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.

            Some mystery surrounds new Falcons defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen. After all, he worked behind the scenes in New Orleans since 2017.

One more thing that’s not a mystery: He can command a room. Nielsen was charismatic and ...

            About 28 years before he became the Carolina Panthers’ head coach, Frank Reich was part of a rambunctious Panthers team that was doing everything for the first time. That 1995 Panthers team — the first in Carolina history — was loaded with characters, commoners and cast-offs. Everyone was from somewhere else.

            PHOENIX — Ndamukong Suh sings softly of the multitudes he contains. “I have a lot of different dimensions,” he said one day in the Eagles’ locker room, on a rare occasion when he was in the Eagles’ locker room at the same time that media members were. A University of Nebraska alumnus, he calls Warren Buffett a friend. A Portland native and Nike endorser, he trains daily each offseason at the ...

            Nick Sirianni stood on pressbox furniture at Arrowhead Stadium and celebrated like no one was watching.

            Sean Payton’s got a long to-do list as he gets settled into his new Denver digs.

            The rush for the title of best Super Bowl commercial already has begun, and early signs point to a banner year for banality, middle-aged TV celebrities and, of course, animals doing wacky things.
