  • Titans hire Mike Vrabel as head coach, hope to follow Patriots’ lead

    Tennessee general manager Jon Robinson got his NFL start as a scout with New England, where his new head coach, Mike Vrabel, won three Super Bowl rings as a linebacker.

Quarterback Carson Wentz's injury drained outside hope that the Eagles would book their tickets to Super Bowl LII. Nonetheless, Foles and a relentless defense contributed to an unlikely...
