    One thing we learned about each NFL team in Week 1: Lamar Jackson can pass, Chargers now can close games

    The NFL arguably had its most exciting Week 1 in years, living up to the offseason hype generated by all the player movement over the spring and summer months. The league had five games decided by a game-winning score in the final two minutes of regulation or in overtime, tied for the third-most such games in Week 1 (and the most since 2002).

    10 things we learned from Mizzou football this spring | Mizzou Sports News

    COLUMBIA, Mo. — Missouri’s Eli Drinkwitz might have one advantage over his peers in the Southeastern Conference: He probably knows more about his team’s strengths and weaknesses than the other SEC coaches know about their respective rosters. That’s the upside to holding your spring game on March 19 while the rest of the league waits for April.
