Johnny Manziel's ex-girlfriend says in an affidavit the Cleveland Browns quarterback hit her so hard during a late-night confrontation she lost hearing in one ear. Colleen Crowley's affidavit, published online Monday, says Manziel dragged her into a car last month after she tried to get away from him. Crowley accused Manziel of striking her in her left ear.
Prosecutors charged Ball on Monday with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, for an incident at a downtown Madison hotel early Friday. The woman told police she and Ball were arguing when he threw her in the air and she landed on a table, cutting her leg. A criminal complaint says Ball also was charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly striking the woman on the face five days earlier.
Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is under investigation over a Philadelphia nightclub brawl early Sunday that left two off-duty police officers injured, one with a broken nose and broken ribs and the other with a possible skull fracture. The incident occurred early Sunday morning after an argument broke out between McCoy's party and the officers over a bottle of champagne. One officer had a broken nose, broken ribs and a sprained thumb and remained hospitalized, police said, while the second received stitches and had a possible skull fracture.
The Atlanta Falcons started their offseason overhaul Monday by releasing a pair of defensive starters: longtime safety William Moore and linebacker Justin Durant. Moore was a second-round pick in 2009 and one of the senior members of the team. Durant was one of Atlanta's most notable free-agent signings a year ago, brought in with the hope of adding big-play capability to the defense after the hiring of coach Dan Quinn.
When Marshawn Lynch was brought to Seattle early in the 2010 season, he was acquired because the Seahawks desperately needed a running back. What he ended up providing was an attitude and style that became the foundation for bringing the first Super Bowl title to the Pacific Northwest. Without saying a word - big surprise - Lynch drew a lot of attention during the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday night with a single post on social media.
Setting television viewership records with the Super Bowl has become almost routine, but this year's average of 111.9 million viewers for Denver's victory over Carolina is down from the past two years. The Super Bowl had seemed to know no ceiling in popularity, setting viewership records in six of seven years until this one. CBS, the nation's most-watched network, had pushed the event hard the past few months, playing up the historical nature of the 50th Super Bowl game.
On top of his game and now the world, Von Miller's docket is quickly filling up. ''I was just talking to Coach Kubiak, I was asking if you could make the plane do backflips on the way home,'' Miller said Monday after accepting the Super Bowl MVP trophy from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. It should be a magical offseason for Miller, who led Denver's dominating defense to a 24-10 clobbering of Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.
Over two decades of watching Peyton Manning play on the biggest stages, fans became numb to all he could do - the way he dissected defenses with clinical precision, the way he rewrote the record book, even the way he came back from a neck injury that was supposed to be career-ending. Hobbled, creaking, sputtering to the end of his 18th season, he became a different quarterback. Not so much because of the 13 completions and 141 yards - that used to be one quarter's worth for Manning.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia Eagles say they have released wide receiver Riley Cooper after six seasons.
A reborn Orange Crush might have sent Peyton Manning into retirement with a Super ending to his career. Von Miller and the impenetrable Denver defense harassed Panthers quarterback Cam Newton all game Sunday, and the Broncos made enough big plays for a 24-10 victory, Manning's 200th and perhaps his last before retirement.
