    The Minnesota Vikings were deprived of three points Monday night when Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner apparently used illegal means to block a fourth-quarter field goal attempt. Wagner put his hands on two teammates as he leaped over the offensive linemen en route to swatting down a 47-yard field goal try by Minnesota's Dan Bailey. Former NFL officiating chief Mike Pereira, now a TV analyst for FOX, tweeted, "Lots of talk about the Wagner block.

    Jason Witten has been linked with a return to the Cowboys. The NFL has a multitude of problems: players committing off-the-field violence, the Oakland Raiders in general and, most worrying of all, the growing realization that the game is inherently dangerous to its participants’ long-term health. It was inevitable that there would be some growing pains over at MNF, as the show replaced the entire booth during the offseason.

    Steve Kerr long ago ran out of superlatives to describe Stephen Curry. The Warriors coach isn't even trying anymore, not with the way his All-Star point guard is playing since coming back from a groin injury. Curry had 38 points, seven rebounds and six assists, and Golden State beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-108 on Monday night in Draymond Green's return to the Warriors' lineup.

    If there was any mistake before, there’s little doubt remaining that there is no love lost between Le’Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Pro Bowl running back who has held out the entire season over a contract dispute is now trolling his presumed soon-to-be former team online. The Steelers suffered an ugly loss to the now 3-10 Oakland Raiders on Sunday that cut their lead over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North to just half a game.

Coming off a 108-win season and a World Series title, the defending champions seem poised to have a mellow offseason. The All-Star closer looks like he’s fallen out of Boston’s plans, if Dombrowski’s comments during Monday’s press conference carry any weight.

The Rockets would also like to have less salary on the books next season, giving them some flexibility and lowering the tax bill. J.R.

    Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was struggling through his rookie season until head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley were fired. Since then, Mayfield hasn’t struggled a bit. Mayfield is one of the best quarterbacks in football in the five games since Gregg Williams took over as head coach and Freddie Kitchens took over as offensive coordinator, something no one would have called Mayfield when he was playing in the Jackson/Haley offense.

    Sean McVay said he felt "sick" about the Los Angeles Rams' inability to take advantage of a strong defensive performance in a loss to the Chicago Bears that he blamed on himself. The Rams slumped to only their second defeat of another excellent campaign for McVay, who secured a playoff spot in his first season in charge and has steered them to a second successive NFC West title this year, with a 15-6 loss at Soldier Field. McVay's men have scored 425 points this season, the Rams coach seen as one of the masterminds of an offensive explosion in the NFL in recent years.

Via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times, the Rams were accountable after their 15-6 loss to the Bears, with everyone raising their hand for their share of the blame. Gurley being reduced to a bit player was a large part of that, though the Bears’ swarming defense was feared to stop him (Jared Goff‘s four interceptions were an added benefit).

    Much to the Edmonton Oilers’ chagrin, Milan Lucic isn’t the all-encompassing threat he once was. Lucic is still an enormous human, however, and sometimes you get a taste of what made him such a menacing presence in the past. Sunday stood as one of those examples, as Lucic delivered a thunderous check on Calgary Flames defenseman Travis Hamonic, then went toe-to-toe with Anthony Peluso in what seemed like a pretty even fight.

The former two-time All-Star big man retired in August after a long career, and the Warriors are perhaps worse off because of it.

    The Broncos looked beleaguered, beat up and undermanned against the lowly San Francisco 49ers. Case Keenum got going too late in a 20-14 loss to San Francisco on Sunday, four days after top target Emmanuel Sanders went down with a torn left Achilles tendon in practice Wednesday. The Broncos (6-7) were out of sorts early, then trying to play catch-up from a 20-0 deficit that saw Kittle take apart the defense time and again on the way to an 85-yard touchdown catch, 210 yards receiving and becoming the 49ers' first tight end to reach 1,000 yards receiving.
