PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bill Fralic, the burly, bruising and athletic offensive lineman who starred for the Atlanta Falcons and was a three-time All-American at Pittsburgh, has died. He was 56.
He had cancer and died Thursday at his home in suburban Atlanta, the university said.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck followed the perfect plan Sunday.
He threw three more touchdown passes again, avoided getting sacked again and helped Adam Vinatieri achieve another record-breaking moment by leading the Colts to their fourth straight win.
Luck and T.Y. Hilton hooked up twice for scores, Marlon Mack and Jordan Wilkins each ran for one touchdown and the Colts' defense stymied Tennessee in a 38-10 drubbing that gave Luck a 10-0 record against the Titans.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Drew Brees smiles widely and his eyes wander back to a time when he was a kid out of Purdue seeking his place in pro football.
He was marveling at the statistics posted by the likes of Dan Marino, Joe Montana and John Elway, Hall of Famers all. And he wondered "How long do you have to play in the league to have a chance at that?"
Patrick Mahomes is already chasing Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.
Mahomes tossed six touchdown passes at Pittsburgh after throwing four in the opener at the Chargers. His 10 TDs are the most in NFL history by a quarterback in his team's first two games of a season. Manning has the most through three games with 12 in 2013 for Denver and Brady is second with 11 in 2011.
Monday, Dec. 25
Pittsburgh at Houston, 4:30 EST. The Steelers (11-3) have won three of their past four over the Texans. Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger has six touchdown passes and one interception in four games against the Texans. Houston (4-10) has lost four straight and seven of eight. QB T.J. Yates will make his second straight start with Tom Savage on IR with a concussion.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Few have ever compared Jameis Winston to Dan Marino — until now.
Winston, who turns 24 in January, has tied the Miami Dolphins legend for the most NFL touchdown passes before his 24th birthday with 68, according to Elias Sports Bureau. He tied the mark with an 18-yard pass to former college teammate Bobo Wilson, but Tampa Bay lost 22-19 .
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Philip Rivers didn't grow up an NFL fan.
He grew up a fan of quarterbacks.
A northern Alabama native, college football games on Saturdays were his sports meat and potatoes. The NFL was dessert.
"The quarterbacks were the ones I had posters of," Rivers said. "The quarterbacks were the ones I picked who I liked, and what numbers I liked and everything."
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Bill Polian remembers walking into the RCA Dome for Peyton Manning's home debut in 1998, peering into the stands and seeing all those Dan Marino jerseys.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Larry Fitzgerald got "choked up" as a spectator at the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony this weekend.
Listening to the stories of how those seven inductees arrived at this ultimate individual pro football honor impressed the star receiver.
Of course, Fitzgerald was there to watch Kurt Warner inducted.
"It was great be there, to be able to support a good friend and mentor," Fitzgerald said.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins have signed free agent quarterback Dan Marino.
Yes, that one.
More than 17 years removed from his final NFL pass and 12 years after his enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Marino "re-signed" with the Dolphins on Wednesday — as were five other prominent former members of the team, all inking ceremonial one-day contracts designed so they could officially retire as members of the franchise.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger intended for the moment to be private. The camera following him to midfield and the microphone tucked inside Tom Brady's shoulder pads ended up making that impossible.
Their brief exchange before Brady and the New England Patriots visited the Pittsburgh Steelers in October provided a snapshot into a rivalry that never was. They bro-hugged. They lamented the left knee injury that forced Roethlisberger out the lineup on that warm late fall afternoon.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins now have something in common with their 1984 Super Bowl team, and it's not good.
Miami has allowed 971 yards the past two weeks, the highest total in consecutive games for the franchise in 32 years. The 1984 team gave up 455 yards in the AFC championship game and 537 in the Super Bowl, a collapse even Dan Marino couldn't overcome as Miami lost the title game.
