ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — As Roger Goodell and Jerry Jones sat side by side chatting, then grabbed shovels at a junior high school to dedicate a new field, they sure seemed chummy. Then again, this was for a worthy cause, so any and all past animosities over suspensions and lawsuits and contract...

FILE - In this Feb. 4, 2018, file photo, Philadelphia Eagles' Corey Clement, right, catches a touchdown pass in front of New England Patriots' Marquis Flowers during the second half of the NFL Super Bowl 52 football game in Minneapolis. While first-round picks receive most of the attention and players chosen the first two days of the draft get more money and better job security, success on Day 3 of the draft often separates the elite teams from the good ones. That was evident when the Eagles and Patriots met in February. Corey Clement had 100 yards receiving and one touchdown and LeGarrette Blount ran for 90 yards and one touchdown in Philadelphia's 41-33 victory. Danny Amendola led the Patriots with 152 yards receiving and Chris Hogan had 128. All four players were undrafted free agents. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson, File)

Giannis Antetokounmpo was criticized after Game 5 of Milwaukee's Eastern Conference series against Boston for not doing more, particularly on the offensive end. The harshest critic: Antetokounmpo, himself. He took only 10 field-goal attempts, his third-lowest total of the entire season...

It took one trip to Las Vegas early in the season for the San Jose Sharks to realize that the fast start to the season for the expansion Golden Knights was no fluke.
