HOUSTON (AP) -- Top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney is unlikely to play for the Houston Texans when they host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday because of an unspecified illness.
Philadelphia Eagles safety Nate Allen is listed as questionable on the team's injury report, making it a 50-50 chance he plays Sunday when the team travels to Houston. Allen injured his hamstring in last week's 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, a game in which he was beaten for a 75-yard touchdown pass from Carson Palmer to rookie speedster John Brown in the final minutes. ''I'm getting treatment, doing everything I can.'' If Allen cannot play, second-year safety Earl Wolff would likely get the start, although Eagles coach Chip Kelly wouldn't say that was a definite. Special teams ace Ch…

The Arizona Cardinals hit two long touchdowns in the second half of their win over the Philadelphia Eagles, and the two plays appeared to have no connection. But if you watch the film, you could see that the first score set up the second. The first, an 80-yard touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald, was the result of the Cardinals understanding tendencies and calling the right play to beat a defense they knew was coming. The second, John Brown’s 75-yard game-winning score, was a great concept and a perfect call to beat the defense Philadelphia adjusted to after the first score.Let’s examine the…

So shrouded in mystery is the NFL’s all-time single-game passing-yards mark — 554, by Norm Van Brocklin of the Los Angeles Rams in 1951 — that there are no physical relics from the game in question at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Canton is full of memorabilia and artifacts from many of the other significant moments in NFL lore, and anytime these days a new mark goes down another piece is added to display. But its best passing game has but a few known photographs representing a mark that miraculously has stood for more than 63 years.The Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger ma…
