    Elephants' reprieve: How about the rest of the animal kingdom?

    Philip Rivers in fine form during the Chargers' 28-6 rout of the Cowboys

    There was a little Decatur, Ala., on the field with Philip Rivers on Thursday. That was the town where he grew up, fantasizing of playing in the NFL; where he obsessed over football with his father and grandfather, and where he doctored photos to include his face on the cover of Sports Illustrated....

    Keenum, Vikings hold off Lions in early Thanksgiving game, 30-23

    Case Keenum stood in the pocket to take a hit, dipped his right shoulder to slip out of a sack and shuffled his feet in the pocket to give his receivers more time to get open. Looking like a savvy winner, instead of a journeyman, he picked apart Detroit's defense with his arm and made plays with...
