Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz were not fined for their handshake confrontation at the end of Sunday's Lions-49ers game, although the NFL said that the coaches have acknowledged "their postgame conduct was wrong and won't happen again." Meanwhile, 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis and Lions defensive end Cliff Avril, who had their own confrontation on the field during Sunday's game, continued their battle on Twitter. Davis started things off by taunting the Lions after San Francisco's win, and he kept it going after Avril checked in, although Davis later deleted two of his more obnoxious posts.

Speaking to WEEI.com Monday, Jon Lester denied a report from CSN New England stating the pitcher's assertions that the beer-drinking, fried-chicken-eating and video game-playing during games were understated.
"Who did it come from? An anonymous source? Exactly," he said. "I hate anonymous sources because if you can't call me or come to me face-to-face as a man and tell me I'm doing something wrong, you mean nothing to me. I don't have time for that. I don't know where these people are coming from. I don't know what their problem is with is. But that's not the case."
Lester repeated to WEEI.com that he did not feel the reports prior to Monday portrayed both the Red...
According to an industry source with knowledge of the negotiations between the Red Sox and Cubs, an announcement regarding the status of GM Theo Epstein is "not likely" on Tuesday, meaning that the matter will likely remain unresolved until after the World Series.
Epstein reached an agreement with Cubs owner Tom Ricketts on a contract to head baseball operations in Chicago last week. Since then, the Sox and Cubs have yet to find common ground in negotiating the compensation that Boston would receive in order to let Epstein go with one year left on his contract. While sources suggested that the two sides were progressing in negotiations over the weekend, the teams seemingly have yet to find common ground about the players who would head to Boston in exchange for the architect of two World Series winners and six playoff clubs.
If the Sox and Cubs cannot settle the matter on Tuesday, then the MLB Commissioner's Office would likely not...
According to ESPN.com, the Red Sox initially sought right-handed starter Matt Garza as compensation from the Cubs for the prospective departure of Boston GM Theo Epstein. According to the report, the Cubs refused the request about the 27-year-old, who was 10-10 with a 3.32 ERA 197 strikeouts in 198 innings for the Cubs this year after spending the previous three seasons pitching for the Rays, for whom he frequently dominated the Sox.
With Chicago unwilling to part with Garza, according to the report, the two sides instead have moved on to discuss potential minor league prospects whom the Sox would receive in order to release Epstein from the final year of his contract in Boston.
One of the prospects under discussion, according to multiple reports, is right-handed pitcher Trey McNutt, a former 32nd-...
Patriots coach Bill Belichick made his weekly appearance with Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley Monday on The Big Show, discussing the Sunday's 20-16 victory over the Cowboys and the state of the team as it enters its bye week.
One of the topics discussed was receiver Chad Ochocinco, whom the team acquired in the offseason from the Bengals in exchange for a 2012 fifth-round pick and a 2013 sixth-round pick. Through six games, Ochocinco is fifth on the team with nine receptions and 136 receiving yards. He has yet to score a touchdown this season.
"What we're expecting to do is to win. It's to go out there and move the ball and score points. I feel like we're doing a pretty good job of that, so if we can produce offensively as a team, and everybody's doing their job, which involves a lot of different things, then that's good. If we're not, then we're going to try to do it better. We're going to try to do it better anyway. … It's...
