Jets-Bills now Monday in Detroit
The NFL has moved the New York Jets- Buffalo Bills game to 7 p.m. ET on Monday at Ford Field in Detroit. The game previously was scheduled for Sunday afternoon in Buffalo, but the NFL announced earlier Thursday that it would be moved as another storm brought the area's paralyzing three-day snowfall total to at least 6 feet. "Public safety resources in western New York must be fully available to deal with the recovery from the storm," the NFL said in a statement.

Suspended Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson expressed regret for injuring his 4-year-old son in an exclusive interview with USA Today Sports published Thursday night, vowing never to use a switch as discipline on any of his children again.

He will not be considered for reinstatement before April 15, 2015, for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Commissioner Roger Goodell, in a statement...

The hockey world was abuzz Thursday as the explosive story of the financial wreck that Johnson's personal life has become was reported by veteran Columbus beat writer Aaron Portzline -- and later confirmed by ESPN.com.

The relationship between Jack Johnson and his parents has been...
