The Baltimore Ravens come into Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans as slight underdogs to the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers. The defense that’s carried this team for more than a decade will hope to send Ray Lewis off with a title in his final football game. We give them three keys to this Sunday’s game.
When Robert Griffin III hobbled off the field against the Seattle Seahawks it was the symbolic end of the Washington Redskins season. But it was also the start of some awesomly bad poetry. Griffin tore two ligaments in his right knee as the Skins lost their first playoff appearance since 2007. That prompted Washington Post columnist John Kelly to invite readers to submit poems about RGIII's injury.
One favorite, to the tune of "My Country 'Tis of Thee":
RGIII hurt his knee,
Can't use arthroscopy,
It's torn so bad.
Coach kept him in too long,
Team may have done him wrong,
Just hope it's not his swan song,
Skins' fans so sad.

This weekend the best football players in the country take the field to show the nation what they've got. No, I don't mean the start of the NFL playoffs, though we're looking forward to that, for sure. On Saturday at 1 pm ET, before the NFL Playoffs kickoff, the nation's top High Schoolers will head down to San Antonio to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Adidas gave us a sneak preview of what the new uniforms will look like.
On the pants, compression base layer and numbers, you'll see a subtle camouflage print that we think is pretty cool. The unis and numbers on them are made with light-weight material that makes them weight 30 percent less than the average football jersey. Then on their feet, the players will have the adizero 5-Star 2.0s, which at 6.7 ounces may be the lightest football cleats out there.
In those jerseys there will be football's stars of tomorrow. While many players have already committed to their universities, a few will make their announcement live on air at the game. The 6-4, 225 athletic linebacker, Mike Mitchell from Plano, Texas will pick between Ohio State, Oregon and Texas A&M. Tony Stevens, a 6-4 175-lb wide receiver from Florida will decide whether he'll go to Texas A&M, Ohio State or Florida State. More »
