    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.

    Here is a good story for Christmas. Jadeveon Clowney of the Texans said the Jaguars quarterback is trash and then a lot of people sent trash cans to Clowney. He filled them with toys and donated them to homeless kids. I wish more athletes would do things like this with all the money they make.

    The Browns lost to the Bears today and ESPN says they are the only team to lose 15 games in two different seasons. They are 0-15 now and last year they were 1-15. They will get the top draft pick next year.
