Legendary Raiders C Jim Otto dies at 86

Legendary Raiders C Jim Otto dies at 86

Legendary Oakland Raiders center Jim Otto, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, has died at the age of 86, the team announced Sunday.

The Raiders did not disclose a cause of death.

Otto spent his entire 15-year career with the Raiders, who moved to Las Vegas ahead of the 2020 season. Oakland was playing as a member of the AFL for Otto's first 10 seasons (1960-69).

"The Raiders Family is in deep mourning following the passing of Jim Otto ... The Original Raider," the team said in a statement on Sunday. "The personification of consistency, Jim's influence on the American Football League and professional football as a whole cannot be overstated."

One of three players to play in all 140 AFL regular-season games, Otto started 210 games for the Raiders in all. No one else started at center from his first game in 1960 to his last in 1974.

Despite the remarkable consistency from season to season, Otto did deal with his fair share of injuries, and he had to have over 70 surgeries, most of which related to his knees. Because of two serious infections, Otto had to have his right leg amputated in 2007, and he also fought prostate cancer.

Otto landed in the Hall of Fame in 1980 -- the first year he was eligible. He was named to the NFL 100 All-Time team in 2019.

Even when his playing days were over, Otto stayed involved with the Raiders organization, serving as the director of special projects. During his time in that role, Otto set up reunions for former players and made public appearances as a representative for the team.

Otto was also known for wearing No. 00, an ode to the two O's in his last name. However, NFL players nowadays cannot select that number.

"‘00' was the foundational piece of a transcendent offensive line that not only propelled the Raiders to success on the field but resonated with fans and helped build the Raiders persona and mystique," the team said in its statement.

Otto is survived by his wife, a son, his daughter-in-law and 14 grandchildren.

Former All-Pro RB David Johnson announces retirement

Former All-Pro RB David Johnson announces retirement

Running back David Johnson, who was named an All-Pro and Pro Bowler following a standout 2016 season, announced his retirement from the NFL Sunday.

On his Instagram page, Johnson said in part, "I'm looking forward to my next career path in life. I don't know exactly what that will be, but I hope it will bring me the same passion, excitement, and love as football did!"

Johnson, 32, was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He ran for 581 yards and eight touchdowns as a rookie before his encore performance resulted in a breakout season in 2016.

Johnson led the NFL with 2,118 yards from scrimmage that fall -- 1,239 rushing yards, 80 receptions for 879 receiving yards and 20 total touchdowns -- and was named first-team All-Pro and nominated to the 2016 Pro Bowl.

Injuries limited him to a single game in 2017 before he rebounded with 1,386 scrimmage yards in 2018. But he only exceeded 1,000 yards once more in his career, during his first season with the Houston Texans in 2020.

He last played for the New Orleans Saints in 2022, appearing in five games.

Over his eight-year career, Johnson rushed for 4,071 yards and 39 touchdowns, adding 277 receptions for 2,805 yards and 18 touchdown catches.

He ranks 10th in career rushing yardage with the Cardinals (3,128 yards) and is tied for third in rushing touchdowns (33).

Reports: Fanatics sues Marvin Harrison Jr.

Reports: Fanatics sues Marvin Harrison Jr.

Sports collectibles and apparel merchandiser Fanatics is suing wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., alleging breach of contract, multiple outlets reported.

The lawsuit was filed Saturday in New York Supreme Court against Harrison, who was selected No. 4 overall by the Arizona Cardinals in last month's NFL Draft.

Per a Sunday report from The Athletic, Harrison initially signed a limited, non-exclusive promotion and license agreement with Fanatics while he played for Ohio State. The parties then negotiated a longer contract with Harrison, which included what the filing called "significant" compensation, with both sides signing off on it in May 2023.

In the lawsuit, reviewed by The Athletic, Fanatics charges that Harrison hasn't lived up to his end of the contract, despite receiving paychecks last August and October, and that he has denied he had an agreement with the company.

While details of the purported agreement, including his contractual obligations, were redacted in the suit, ESPN reported that a source earlier this month said Harrison agreed to signing autographs and trading cards, providing game-worn apparel and "other marketing opportunities." The Athletic said Harrison has ignored requests from Fanatics to fulfill that the company says exists.

Fanatics is seeking a jury trial and estimates in potential losses as totaling "millions of dollars."

Harrison also has not yet signed the NFL Players Association's group licensing agreement, which is holding up the sale of his licensed jerseys and other memorabilia.

Anyone itching to buy Harrison gear can do so at The Official Harrison Collection, a website that sells autographed jerseys, helmets, photos, mini-helmets and such. There also are limited items signed by his father, Pro Football Hall of Fame receiver Marvin Harrison Sr., on the site.

Vikings TE TJ Hockenson might not be ready for Week 1

Vikings TE TJ Hockenson might not be ready for Week 1

Minnesota Vikings tight end TJ Hockenson provided an update on his surgically repaired right knee Friday, indicating he's made good progress but has a long way to go.

Hockenson, the eighth overall pick by the Detroit Lions in 2019, suffered ACL and MCL damage in a Week 16 loss to Detroit and had surgery delayed until Jan. 29 because of swelling.

"They (the team) haven't really put a timeline on it," Hockenson said this week via NFL Media. "We're just kinda taking it day by day, week by week. There's just so many variables that you can go through in this process.

"I'm doing really good right now. We're attacking each process. I'm attacking each one and it's been awesome. The progression has been incredible."

NFL.com speculated Hockenson might miss the season's first few weeks but the two-time Pro Bowler might be ready to take the team flight to London for a Week 5 matchup with the New York Jets.

Traded to Minnesota by the Lions during the 2022 season, Hockenson had 60 catches, three of them touchdowns, for 519 yards in those 10 games with the Vikings.

He became a major component of the Minnesota offense last season, with 95 receptions for 960 yards, scoring five touchdowns in 15 games before his season was cut short.

Hockenson's four-year, $66 million contract runs through 2027.

The team signed veteran tight end Robert Tonyan on Thursday.

Netflix, NFL unwrap football for Christmas through 2026

Netflix, NFL unwrap football for Christmas through 2026

Treading further into territory once reserved for NBA broadcasts, the NFL plans to continue airing games on Christmas Day beyond the 2024 doubleheader on Netflix announced on Wednesday.

NFL Vice President of Media Hans Schroeder said Thursday the league already has outlined plans for Christmas games in 2025 and 2026. Since Christmas is on a Saturday in 2027, it's a near certainty regular-season games will be played that day, too.

"Amazon will have their traditional Thursday night game in primetime on Christmas on Thursday next year, and we'll have another game on Netflix in the afternoon," Schroeder said on a conference call discussing the league schedule for the 2024 season released Wednesday.

"Netflix will have a game on Friday the year after that (2026). We'll use how we think about '25 to form how we go into '26."

With Christmas falling on a Wednesday in 2024, the four teams involved were scheduled for Saturday games the week before to emulate the Saturday-to-Thursday game week schedule.

Traditionally, the NBA is the only game competing for airtime with a scarce sports broadcast schedule on Christmas Day. After ratings showed sincere interest from fans in Christmas games in 2023, the NFL claims it decided to commit to more in future seasons.

All three games had more than 27 million viewers according to Nielsen, ratings that piqued the interest of the NFL. The games were peeled out of the full network broadcast agreements and Netflix reportedly bid $75 million for each of its three holiday games.

VP of Broadcast Mike North said the NFL "wasn't thinking about" scheduling on Christmas 2024 at this time last year.

"When you saw the viewership numbers for Christmas for the tripleheader last year, and the tripleheader the year before -- I think it's four of the last five years that we've played on Christmas -- the fans have spoken," North said. "They want the games there and our broadcast partners want the games there."

Falcons release OLB Ade Ogundeji

Falcons release OLB Ade Ogundeji

The Atlanta Falcons released outside linebacker Ade Ogundeji on Thursday.

Ogundeji, 25, recorded 75 tackles, three sacks and one fumble recovery in 32 career games (27 starts) in his first two seasons with the Falcons. He was selected by Atlanta in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Notre Dame.

Ogundeji injured his foot during training camp last August, landed on injured reserve and sat out the 2023 season.

Jaguars sign DBs Terrell Edmunds, Tre Flowers

Jaguars sign DBs Terrell Edmunds, Tre Flowers

The Jacksonville Jaguars added three players on defense Thursday, signing defensive backs Terrell Edmunds and Tre Flowers, as well as linebacker Ty Summers.

The Jaguars also waived linebacker Dequan Jackson and cut ties with wide receiver Wayne Ruby on a injury settlement.

Edmunds, 27, was a first-round draft pick in 2018 and played his first five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers before splitting time with the Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles in 2023.

In 95 career games (79 starts), Edmunds has 458 tackles, six interceptions and 28 passes defended.

Flowers, 28, has 283 tackles with four interceptions and 22 passes defended in 90 games (44 starts) over six seasons for the Seattle Seahawks (2018-21), Cincinnati Bengals (2021-22) and Atlanta Falcons (2023).

Summers, 28, has 60 tackles in 67 games (one start) for the Green Bay Packers (2019-21) and New Orleans Saints (2022-23), while also playing three games for the Jaguars in 2022.

Vikings sign veteran TE Robert Tonyan

Vikings sign veteran TE Robert Tonyan

The Minnesota Vikings announced the signing of veteran tight end Robert Tonyan on Thursday.

Tonyan, 30, caught 11 passes for 112 yards and no touchdowns in 17 games (six starts) for the Chicago Bears in 2023.

He previously played for the Green Bay Packers (2018-22) and spent time with the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent in 2017, giving him a sweep of the NFC North by joining the Vikings.

Tonyan has 148 career catches for 1,549 yards and 17 touchdowns in 85 games (24 starts). His 11 touchdown grabs in 2020 tied for fifth in the NFL.

Minnesota waived undrafted rookie linebacker Donovan Manuel to make room for Tonyan on the 90-man roster.

He joins a tight ends room that includes two-time Pro Bowler T.J. Hockenson, Josh Oliver, Johnny Mundt, Nick Muse, Trey Knox and Sammis Reyes.

Report: Pats sign C David Andrews through 2025

Report: Pats sign C David Andrews through 2025

The New England Patriots and center David Andrews agreed to an extension through 2025, ESPN reported Thursday.

He will earn a base salary of $12 million in each of the next two seasons, with a max value of $13 million, plus a total of $8 million fully guaranteed, per the report.

Andrews, 31, has won two Super Bowl rings since joining the Patriots as an undrafted rookie out of Georgia in 2015.

He has started 117 of his 120 regular-season games for New England, including all 17 contests last season. He also has 10 starts in 12 playoff games.

Hall of Fame Game returns to ABC

Hall of Fame Game returns to ABC

The 2024 Hall of Fame Game will be broadcast on Aug. 1 by ABC and ESPN.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame said Thursday this will be the first time ESPN has aired the game. It's sister network, ABC, had rights to the Hall of Fame Game from 1971-2005.

This year's preseason game in Canton, Ohio, will feature the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans.

ESPN's "Monday Night Football" crew of Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Lisa Salters will call the game.

Aikman, the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys from 1989-2000, was enshrined in the Hall of Fame in 2006.

Lions QB Jared Goff: 'More fired up than ever'

Lions QB Jared Goff: 'More fired up than ever'

Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff made his goals clear on Thursday, the day the team announced his signing to a contract extension through the 2028 season.

"I'm more driven and more fired up than ever to go even harder and put the pedal to the metal even more to bring a Super Bowl to the city and that's what's most important," Goff said.

The team didn't disclose financial terms, but multiple outlets reported the four-year extension was for $212 million with $170 million guaranteed.

Goff, acquired in the 2021 trade that sent veteran QB Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams, is entering his fourth season as the starter in Detroit. In 48 regular season games with the Lions, he has completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 12,258 yards with 78 touchdowns and 27 interceptions -- resulting in a 96.5 passer rating.

Among NFL QBs last season, he was first in passing first downs (227), second in passing yards (4,575), second in 20-yard completions (69) and tied for third in 300-yard games (five).

Detroit finished 12-5 last season and won its first division title in 30 years. The Lions posted playoff victories over the Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers and held a 24-7 halftime lead before falling 34-31 to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.

The Rams selected Goff with the No. 1 overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Goff's reported $53 million annual average value ranks second in the NFL behind Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who has a $55 million AAV. Burrow signed a five-year, $275 million deal last September.

NFL schedule gives Chiefs, Jets major exposure

NFL schedule gives Chiefs, Jets major exposure

The Kansas City Chiefs will open the season with a difficult one-two punch as they seek their third Super Bowl championship in a row.

The NFL released its full regular-season schedule on Wednesday night, when the Chiefs got a full look at the challenges in store for them in 2024. They will face Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL's "Kickoff Game" on Sept. 5, and one week later they will play a Cincinnati Bengals team that has beaten them in six of the past eight regular-season meetings.

Plenty of other tests await the Chiefs, such as a road contest on Oct. 20 against the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of last season's Super Bowl.

In other highlights from the schedule release, Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets learned that they will be in prime time six times this season. The Jets' national slate includes a Week 1 matchup against the 49ers on "Monday Night Football," another Monday night matchup in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills, and a Week 9 game against the Houston Texans on Amazon's Thursday night schedule.

Rodgers and the Jets also will travel to London, where they will kick off against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The league's international schedule includes four other matchups. The Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles will face off on Sept. 6 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in what will be the NFL's first regular-season game to be played in South America.

Two more London games feature the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. the Chicago Bears on Oct. 13 and the New England Patriots vs. the Jaguars on Oct. 20, and the final international game showcases the New York Giants vs. the Carolina Panthers on Nov. 10 in Munich, Germany.

The NFL again will play three games on Thanksgiving. The action starts with No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams and the Bears visiting the Detroit Lions, and it continues with a midafternoon matchup between the Giants and Dallas Cowboys. The nightcap features the Miami Dolphins at Green Bay.

One day later, on "Black Friday," the Las Vegas Raiders will visit Kansas City. This marks the second year that the NFL has broadcast a game on the day after Thanksgiving.

On Dec. 8, Kirk Cousins will visit a familiar environment when his Atlanta Falcons travel to play the Vikings. Cousins left Minnesota during free agency in the offseason to sign with the Falcons, who guaranteed him $100 million and surprised him weeks later by selecting fellow quarterback Michael Penix Jr. with their first-round draft pick.

The schedule also includes a pair of games on Christmas Day, a Wednesday, that will air on Netflix -- a first-time broadcast partnership for the NFL. The streaming service will feature the Chiefs vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Ravens vs. the Texans.

"We couldn't be more excited to be the first professional sports league to partner with Netflix to bring live games to fans around the world," said Hans Schroeder, NFL's executive vice president of media distribution.

Report: Steelers DT Cameron Heyward to skip OTAs amid contract issue

Report: Steelers DT Cameron Heyward to skip OTAs amid contract issue

Pittsburgh Steelers standout defensive lineman Cameron Heyward is not at voluntary workouts and is planning to skip organized team activities during the offseason as he eyes a contract extension, ESPN reported Wednesday.

Heyward, entering the final year of his current contract (four years, $65.6 million), is a three-time All-Pro and the 2023 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. He has played in 194 career games (159 starts) across 13 seasons with Pittsburgh, recording 647 tackles and 80.5 sacks.

Heyward, who turned 35 on May 6, played only 11 games last season because of a Week 1 groin injury but is "healthy again," according to the report. Heyward finished with 33 tackles and two sacks during the 2023 campaign.

The No. 31 overall selection by the Steelers in the 2011 draft, Heyward has been named to six Pro Bowls.

Pittsburgh's season ended with a wild-card-round loss to the Buffalo Bills. At that time, Heyward revealed his plan to continue playing.

"I've just got to get healthy first," he told reporters in January. "We talk about coming back from injury, I was told at the time it was a 12-week process, and we came back in six weeks."

Amid turmoil, Jeff Fisher to lead Arena Football League

Amid turmoil, Jeff Fisher to lead Arena Football League

Former NFL coach Jeff Fisher has been named interim commissioner of the Arena Football League.

Fisher is taking the place of Lee Hutton, who didn't have the support of team owners as the league attempted to reboot after four dormant seasons. He exited the job on Tuesday.

The AFL began the season on April 27 with 16 teams. Since then, four franchises have either folded or pulled out of the league for the rest of the season. Two more have been moved to inactive status.

One of the remaining teams is the Nashville Kats, where Fisher is the president of football operations. He will remain in that job, The Tennessean reported.

Fisher, 66, previously was the head coach of the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans (1994-2010) and St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams (2012-16).

"Months ago when I decided to help return the Nashville Kats and arena football to the Music City, I did so because of my affection for Nashville and wanting to give back to the community that has been a blessing to me and my family over the years," Fisher said in a news release. "We are now three weeks into the season and the league needs help and I agreed to help the league. I am honored the owners collective have confidence in me to lead them."

The AFL dates to 1987 and was in business until 2008. It returned in 2010, then filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2019 and was discontinued before the 2020 season.

G6 Sports Investment Group now operates the league.

NFL's top 25 games of 2024

NFL's top 25 games of 2024

Christmas Day for NFL marketing and ticket sales departments finally arrived Wednesday with the release of the 2024 season schedule.

24. Cardinals at Jets, TBD: We're grabbing our popcorn for one matchup, and one matchup alone: Cardinals wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. and Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner. Top five draft picks likely to be near the top of the pecking order at their position for a decade.

23. Colts at Patriots, TBD: Drake Maye, the No. 3 pick in the 2024 draft, meet Anthony Richardson, drafted fourth overall in 2023. Indianapolis appeared to have a hit on its hands before Richardson was shut down to undergo shoulder surgery. If he can stay healthy and Maye isn't relegated to clipboard duty behind former Colts starter Jacoby Brissett, we're eager to make early evaluations of purported franchise QBs.

22. Jaguars at Eagles, TBD: Young QBs and strong pass rush are common bonds, sure, but the plotline we're looking at is the reception for Jacksonville head coach Doug Pederson. He played for the Eagles (1999) but was essentially a coach-in-training for Donovan McNabb, then served as an assistant for Andy Reid and came back from a stint in KC for a five-year run that included a Super Bowl.

21. Bears at Texans, TBD: The Bears also get a meeting with the Carolina Panthers for the second consecutive season. With all due respect to Panthers 2023 No. 1 pick Bryce Young, the top rookie quarterback last season was Houston's C.J. Stroud. His numbers would have been the best ever single-season passing total for a Bears QB (4,108 to Erik Kramer's team record of 3,803). Stroud had 26 TD passes including the playoffs despite missing time with a concussion). The Bears hitched their wagon to No. 1 pick Caleb Williams with the rookie carrying massive talent - and expectations - in Year 1.

20. Vikings at Giants, TBD: All of the QB uncertainty one can handle on the undercard, LSU products Justin Jefferson (Vikings) and Malik Nabers (Giants) in the main event.

19. 49ers at Seahawks, TBD: Maybe you overlooked it. There's not a chance Brock Purdy did. He knows new Seahawks coach Mike Macdonald's defense - that of the Ravens - had him seeing ghosts in a five-interception laugher on Christmas Night last season. Macdonald's new club has a bunch of cross-training chess pieces determined to unseat the 49ers from the NFC West perch.

18. Jets at 49ers, Sept. 9: Week 1 on "Monday Night Football" is a familiar refrain for the Jets, who are hoping Aaron Rodgers has some magic left following a season-ending injury four snaps into his first start with the team in 2023. Rodgers is local - Chico, Calif., Butte JC and Cal - and went 6-3 against the 49ers with the Packers. Now 40 years old, he'll try to tip the scales toward the Jets, who are 3-11 all-time in the series with San Francisco. Jets head coach Robert Saleh has known 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan since breaking into the NFL as a low-level assistant with the Texans 15 years ago and was defensive coordinator on his staff before taking over with the Jets.

17. Cowboys at Commanders, TBD: Dan Quinn gets his second chance as a head coach in Washington and to be the champ in the NFC East, he'll have to take down his previous employer and boss, the Cowboys and Mike McCarthy. Given the amount of time Quinn spent with McCarthy and Dak Prescott, don't discount the level of concern the Cowboys have entering two games with Washington.

16. Eagles vs. Packers (Brazil), Sept. 6: The youngest roster in the NFL last season belonged to the Packers, and nobody can fault what Green Bay did in the offseason. Head coach Matt LaFleur debuts his offense with Josh Jacobs at running back and a new-look defense. It'll also be a big reveal game for the Eagles, unleashing their own big-ticket offseason item, Saquon Barkley, and a number of new faces on defense.

15. Falcons at Vikings, TBD: Welcome back, Kirk Cousins, congratulations on finding a team that didn't want to invest in a young quarterback to insure its $100M guarantee to a 35-year-old starter coming off an Achilles injury. Oops. Cousins could be hailed or hated for bailing on the Vikings in free agency following 50 regular-season wins in six seasons of Skol-ing.

14. Ravens at Chargers, TBD: Los Angeles and new hire Jim Harbaugh welcome John Harbaugh and the Ravens with entertainment expected to be rich before, during and after a matchup of AFC heavyweights. John Harbaugh won the last meeting and survived a brief power outage at the Super Bowl in New Orleans to take home the Lombardi and deal Jim's 49ers a painful defeat.

13. Steelers at Broncos, Week 2: Revenge games bring out the spirit and emotion you might not otherwise find in games that don't include Mike Tomlin. Pittsburgh picked up Russell Wilson after he was scrapped at a cost north of $80 million to Denver by second-year head coach Sean Payton. Payton, of course, is still in town and brought in a rookie, Oregon's Bo Nix, to train in the system that helped make Drew Brees a legend. Don't look now, but Pittsburgh had a sneaky excellent offseason while the Broncos shed leaders and linchpins on both sides of the ball (Wilson, Justin Simmons, Jerry Jeudy). If reunions are your thing, Payton also heads back to New Orleans this season.

12. Jets at Bills, Week 17: We know they'll get an earlier go at each other on "Monday Night Football" In October, but let's give the season time to breath and Aaron Rodgers time to round back into form. He'll be recently removed from his 41st birthday but should know the names of all of his wide receivers, a task Josh Allen might need more time to complete.

11. Ravens at Cowboys, TBD: Dak Prescott was great at home last season and Dallas fortified the offensive line through the draft. Whether new defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer has an answer for mobile quarterbacks - namely Lamar Jackson - might be the hot-button issue for the Cowboys. Baltimore's No. 1-ranked defense in 2023 also traveled well last season, battering Brock Purdy, Trevor Lawrence and Justin Herbert and limiting those three teams to a combined 36 points in Ravens' road wins.

10. 49ers at Packers, Nov. 24: Week 12 and the start of a pivotal, NFC-dominated, primetime featured stretch for Green Bay with nighttime marquee matchups at Detroit (Week 14) and Seattle (Week 15) ahead. Jordan Love's two interceptions stopped the Packers short of an upset at San Francisco in the divisional playoffs in January.

9. Texans at Cowboys, TBD: C.J. Stroud appears to be special and the Texans made sure his supporting cast wouldn't be a reason for a sophomore slump. But one warning: only the Bills and Patriots have a more difficult schedule based on 2023 results and offseason moves. Among the appealing underlying matchups: Houston wide receiver Stefon Diggs vs. Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs.

8. Bears at Packers, Jan. 5: The Week 18 finale was meaningful for Green Bay last season, and Jordan Love guided the Packers into the postseason to sweep the Bears and continue the trend Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers started. No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams makes his first foray into the likely frozen tundra. Will the Bears be playing for more than a spoiler token?

7. Dolphins at 49ers, TBD: It was Dec. 4, 2022, and far more meaningful than we knew at the time when a seventh-round rookie - 49ers QB Brock Purdy - made his first career start with two TD passes in a 33-17 home win over the Miami Dolphins. Back to the scene come the Dolphins with former 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel a solid bet to share some unknown intel about old boss Kyle Shanahan in the game week buildup.

6. Ravens at Chiefs, Sept. 5: Had this one been bumped back a couple months to multiply the meaningfulness in the standings and AFC playoff picture, it had an angle on a top three game of the 2024 regular season. Lamar Jackson vs. Patrick Mahomes remains must-see for all the right reasons.

5. 49ers at Bills, Dec. 4: The week-after-Thanksgiving primetime game on Sunday of Week 13 should be meaningful for teams with Super Bowl aspirations.

4. Rams at Lions, TBD: Two franchises on schedule to combine for more than $350 million in deposits into Jared Goff's bank account are back at it with Detroit out to duplicate their playoff win in January over one-time Lions QB Matthew Stafford.

3. Ravens at Eagles, TBD: Star power on display? Check-check. Potential Super Bowl preview? Sure thing. Saquon Barkley (Eagles) and Derrick Henry (Ravens) add firepower to a pair of offenses with explosive potential.

2. Lions at 49ers, TBD: Other than tackle eligible, think of another phrase that could spike Dan Campbell's temperature more than "at San Francisco." Didn't think so. The Lions were halfway to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl leading the 49ers handily in the NFC Championship but coughed up a 17-point lead and bowed out of the playoffs in a 34-31 defeat instead. If Campbell circled this game on the schedule in ink, we're guessing you can't read it.

1. (tie) Chiefs at 49ers, TBD: Familiar enough to be rivals, the Chiefs left with the jewels in recent games that really mattered between teams with a combined 50-18 record the past two regular seasons. San Francisco took a lashing from the Chiefs, 44-23, at home in Oct. 23 before the dawning of the Brock Purdy era.

1. (tie) Bengals at Chiefs, TBD: Don't forget Joe Burrow, he's more than the highest-paid player in 2024. The Bengals quarterback is 3-1 against the Chiefs but was sidelined with a broken wrist when the teams played in 2023. Don't look for a warm reception in Kansas City, where fans aren't soon to forget Burrow's boys calling the Chiefs' stadium "Burrow-head" based on his success at the home of Patrick Mahomes.

Giants to make 'Hard Knocks' debut

Giants to make 'Hard Knocks' debut

The New York Giants will make their "Hard Knocks" debut this year on the long-running HBO docuseries, the network announced Wednesday.

"Hard Knocks: Offseason with the New York Giants" will premiere on July 2. The Giants are preparing for their 100th season.

The franchise opting to take part in this series is a headline unto itself. After all, co-owner John Mara made his stance crystal clear to the New York Daily News back in 2010.

"That announcement will come," Mara said at the time, "when I'm next to my father in the Gates of Heaven cemetery."

Well, Mara is still alive and "Hard Knocks" is calling as the Giants prepare for their centennial season.

This five-part series marks the first time "Hard Knocks" has chronicled a team throughout the offseason, including free agency and the draft. The series previously has documented NFL training camps, the preseason and regular season.

"We are beyond thrilled that the New York Giants have opened their doors to the Hard Knocks cameras for the first time ever," HBO executives Nancy Abraham, Bentley Weiner and Lisa Heller said in a statement. "The NFL offseason is a fascinating period that we've always wanted to explore and we can't wait to show football fans everywhere what NFL Films has been capturing behind the scenes at the team's headquarters."

Netflix to broadcast NFL's Christmas Day games

Netflix to broadcast NFL's Christmas Day games

As the streaming service pointed out with Wednesday's announcement, you can't spell Netflix without NFL.

Netflix has landed a three-year deal to serve as the exclusive host for two Dec. 25 games in 2024 and at least one game on the holiday in both 2025 and 2026.

"There are no live annual events, sports or otherwise, that compare with the audiences NFL football attracts," Netflix chief content officer Bela Bajaria said. "We're so excited that the NFL's Christmas Day games will be only on Netflix."

The 2024 Christmas Day lineup will be announced with the NFL's full schedule release on Wednesday night.

"We couldn't be more excited to be the first professional sports league to partner with Netflix to bring live games to fans around the world," said Hans Schroeder, the NFL's executive vice president of media distribution.

"The NFL on Christmas has become a tradition and to partner with Netflix, a service whose biggest day of the year is typically this holiday, is the perfect combination to grow this event globally for NFL fans."

Netflix has had a partnership with the NFL for the past couple of years, starting with the hit series "Quarterback" in 2023. This summer, "Receiver" will chronicle the on- and off-field adventures of five of the league's best pass-catchers during the 2023 season: Davante Adams, Justin Jefferson, George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Amon-Ra St. Brown.
