Chip: Boykin hasn't been cleared

Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 11:59 AM
It was a curt, defensive Chip Kelly who met briefly with reporters before Wednesday's practice.

Davis: Birds defense facing biggest challenge

Tuesday, December 17, 2013, 1:24 PM

Domo's Day-After Dissection: Eagles-Vikings

Monday, December 16, 2013, 6:01 PM

Thursday, December 12, 2013, 5:18 PM
Bombs Away. The Vikings’ secondary has been hurt by injuries and has not been able to defend the pass. They’ve given up a league-worst 29 touchdown passes already and have a 95.7 opponent passer rating. Expect big numbers from Nick Foles and his receivers on a climate-controlled track. Run-Stoppers...
