in Sports by

University of South Florida running back Marlon Mack dropped a little lower than he hoped, but now knows where he will be heading to training camp in three months.

It was easily the worst play of the 2015 season. Indianapolis trailed New England 27-21 late in the third quarter and faced a fourth-and-3 at its own 37. Obviously, it was a punting situation. But Colts coach Chuck Pagano had other ideas. Wide receiver Griff Whalen played center.…

The Jaguars had felt the full impact of eight of them this year, coming into a home showdown against the Matt Hasselbeck led Indianapolis Colts.
