Mike Tomlin has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
NFL Vice President of Operations Ray Anderson fined Pittsburgh Steelers HC Mike Tomlin $100K for interfering with on-field play. A loss of a future draft pick is a possibility.
During a Thanksgiving, 22-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Tomlin was looking at the scoreboard during a Ravens’ kick return by WR Jacoby Jones.
Jones was sprinting close to the sideline, and Tomlin was standing on the field. Faced away from Jones, the latter had to alter his path to the end zone in order to veer away from Tomlin, and his change in direction caused him to lose momentum and be tackled by a Steeler.
If the punishment was solely a fine, the media would have moved on from this odd situation. However, the possibility of a draft pick loss keeps a cloud of uncertainty looming over the Steelers.

In the flash of an eye…
One second was on the clock when the Alabama Crimson Tide (#1) and the Auburn Tigers (#4) were tied 28-28. Backup Bama PK Adam Griffith attempted a 57-yard field goal, but the football world turned upside down seconds after.
The field goal fell short, and Auburn CB Chris Davis caught the football. Deep in the endzone, Davis bolted with steaming momentum. He reached paydirt, 109 yards later. Auburn won 34-28.

The locker room drama has crippled the Miami Dolphins immensely.
Per Jeff Darlington, until investigator Ted Wells finishes the investigation, Miami Dolphins OL Richie Incognito will remain suspended with pay.
The Dolphins have been under the microscope for all the wrong reasons. Incognito supposedly harassed and bullied fellow ‘Phins OL Jonathan Martin, but the truth will remain unclear until the investigation concludes.
Per Darlington, due to CBA rules, Incognito would not be able to be suspended past four games. The Dolphins’ Sunday game will be Incognito’s fourth. The payment aspect of the suspension enables it to extend.
