Super Bowl’s Hollywood Moment Outshines N.F.L.’s Problems

Football saw its biggest star, Tom Brady, retire, new allegations of sexual harassment against a team owner, and a lawsuit that claimed the N.F.L. discriminates in its hiring. None of it seemed to matter on Sunday.

The N.F.L. and Covid-19: How the League Prepared for the Super Bowl

As the Omicron coronavirus variant appears to run its course, infections in the N.F.L. are falling sharply. A change in testing policy may also play a role.

In the N.F.L., It’s Fourth-and-It-Doesn’t-Matter

Eric Dickerson: ‘The N.F.L. Is Another No-Good Entity.’

Eric Dickerson talks about why some former players hate the N.F.L., his assumption that he has C.T.E., and why his single-season rushing record isn’t his most unbreakable.

This Is the N.F.L. Season That Ran Too Long

The N.F.L.’s final-week schedule usually builds to a Sunday night crescendo. But with only one true elimination game, Week 18’s bloat should feel anticlimactic.

How Week 18 Could Shape the N.F.L. Playoff Picture

In the N.F.C., Green Bay has clinched the bye, but a divisional race and a wild-card spot are still up for grabs. In the A.F.C., things are messier.

Postponed Games and Increased Testing as Covid Continues to Impact Athletes and Teams
