MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Dolphins took another step to becoming the team many envisioned they could be at the start of the 2021 season. Led by a defense that limited the Carolina Panthers under 200 of offense and an offense that produced its largest scoring output of the season, the Dolphins beat the Panthers, 33-10, at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday. It’s the fourth consecutive victory for the ...

CINCINNATI — When the Bengals came into Pittsburgh and beat the Steelers by two touchdowns in Week 3, wide receiver Tyler Boyd said it looked like his hometown team was content to just “lay down” in the final minutes. This time around, the Steelers never bothered to stand up. The Bengals led by 10 nine minutes in, 28 at halftime and finished off a 41-10 drubbing of the Steelers (5-5-1) that is ...

LOS ANGELES — Chip Kelly would dismiss it, wouldn’t want to hear it and probably would cut off the suggestion in mid-sentence. His UCLA Bruins have some momentum heading into their first bowl game in four years. UCLA’s 42-14 victory over California on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl that included 32 unanswered points from the second to fourth quarters gave the Bruins a third consecutive ...

EAST LANSING, Mich. — In a scene more suited for the North Pole, Michigan State closed out a perfect season at home in thrilling fashion.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — The UConn football season ended the with a one-sided loss, which was the way it began. And mostly what came in between. Houston ended the misery for the 2021 Huskies with a 45-17 victory Saturday at Rentschler Field, where 12,685 fans observed the passing of the season with a couple of hours of mostly silence. New coach Jim Mora was introduced before the game, ...

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — If the Miami Dolphins can get Tua Tagovailoa to consistently play the way he performs this season in the opening drives of games and in the fourth quarter, Miami’s offense, and possibly the season, would take off. While the talent around Miami’s second-year starter hasn’t always allowed Tagovailoa to shine, he’s somehow managed to excel in those two critical and telling ...

RALEIGH, N.C. — Eventually N.C. State needed some things to bounce its way. In the final two minutes, that started to happen. The Wolfpack got more than enough late. Trailing UNC by nine, Emeka Emezie caught two touchdown passes in the last 53 seconds, recovered an onside kick and got UNC flagged for two personal fouls. The final result was a historic night in Carter-Finley and a 34-30 win. ...

The most compelling question entering the Apple Cup — at least from Washington’s point of view — seems to be whether true freshman Sam Huard will start at quarterback. The five-star recruit has been the subject of intrigue throughout the season for the Huskies, and there is speculation that he will take the first snap on offense Friday against Washington State. The more important question, ...

DETROIT — As Cairo Santos sent a 28-yard field goal through the uprights as the seconds wound down Thursday afternoon, he saved the Chicago Bears from a bad week turning into an even bigger embarrassment. The Bears didn’t need to give the Detroit Lions their first win of the season on Thanksgiving at Ford Field. Not after Bears rookie Justin Fields injured his ribs and was forced to sit out ...

TAMPA, Fla. — Considering how wobbly the Bucs looked in losing two games in a row to New Orleans and Washington, it was good to see a sturdy Rob Gronkowski return to the lineup. The Bucs tight end hadn’t played a full game since he fractured three ribs and cracked another in a Week 3 loss against the Rams in Los Angeles. But Gronkowski returned to the lineup against the Giants on Monday Night ...
