    Yesterday the Steelers beat the Ravens to clinch the AFC North division title. They're making a habit of that:

    The Steelers have the most division titles in NFL's modern era
    Pittsburgh has won 23 division titles since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970.

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones threatened to sue the NFL if the league gave Commissioner Roger Goodell a contract extension. They did -- and he didn't sue. Now he can look forward to Goodell retiring in seven years.

    ESPN says Jerry Richardson is putting the Panthers up for sale. Several women have accused him of sexual harassment and the Panthers paid them money so they would keep quiet.

    Five players could be voted in to the Football Hall of Fame this year. Here are the 15 finalists. I think Ray Lewis and Randy Moss and Terrell Owens will all get in.

    ESPN said Jon Gruden talked with the Raiders owner yesterday and Gruden says he is prepared to come back and coach but he still will not say that he is definitely coming back. Maybe he will announce it this weekend.

    The Jaguars play the Bills in the wild card game Sunday and they gave 1,000 free tickets to the Puerto Rican families who lost their homes in the hurricane and moved to Florida. That was a very nice thing for the team to do.
