For all of the great plays Gino Marchetti made as a member of the Baltimore Colts, his most famous moment might have come when he insisted to stay on the sideline. In the 1958 NFL championship game against the New York Giants, the famous “Greatest Game Ever Played,” Marchetti tackled Frank Gifford on a game-saving play, but broke his leg. He was taken off the field, but refused to leave the sideline.

A history-making first round of the NFL Draft is in the books and, though there are still two days to go in Nashville, the merits of the opening 32 selections will already be the subject of intense debate. Whether the Arizona Cardinals were right to make Kyler Murray the first player to be selected in the opening rounds of both the MLB and NFL Drafts will be discussed for months to come. As Allen surprisingly slipped out of the top five this pick was something of a no-brainer for the Jaguars, but it is still worthy of praise.

By Simon Evans (Reuters) - The Seattle Seahawks extended their winning start to the season to a franchise record four games after a 23-20 comeback victory in overtime at the Houston Texans on Sunday while the New York Giants suffered a fourth straight loss with a miserable 31-7 defeat at Kansas City.

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos dismantled the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens in the season opener. Then they delivered a convincing victory on the road against Manning's younger brother and the rest of the New York Giants.
COMMENTARY | The AFC West was all but handed to the Denver Broncos before the 2013 NFL season even began. After a dominant 2-0 start (convincing wins against the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants), most are still willing to appoint Peyton Manning and Co. the paper champions of the division -- and rightfully so.
The Baltimore Ravens aren't going to apologize for a win, nor should they. Every win counts the same in the NFL, and the Ravens avoided the dreaded 0-2 start. Ask teams like Washington, the New York Giants, Carolina and Minnesota how 0-2 feels. So the Ravens are in the winners category. But, they also dip a toe in the losers side too. Baltimore will have to improve a ton if it wants to make the playoffs to defend its Super Bowl title. And now the Ravens have to monitor running back Ray Rice's hip injury. The team said Rice suffered just a strained hip flexor, but it was pretty scary to see him go down in a heap with no contact in the fourth quarter. The Ravens offense was pretty bad with Rice for three-plus quarters. They played an ugly game with no points in the first half. Baltimore, which was blown out in Week 1 at Denver, is lucky that the Browns couldn't find the end zone even if quarterback Brandon Weeden had a GPS navigation system installed in his helmet. They squeaked out a 14-6 win. The champs are not playing like champs yet this season. But at least they'll be fixing some of their issues with a win in their back pocket. Here are the rest of the Week 2 winners and losers:
(Reuters) - Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers sliced up the Washington Redskins' defense while new dad Joe Flacco led the reigning Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens to a hard-fought win against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Rodgers soared to a career-high 480 yards passing and four touchdowns and running back James Starks added 132 yards and a touchdown rushing as the Packers dominated the visiting Redskins 38-20, leading 31-0 at one point. "I didn't feel great before the game," Rodgers told reporters. ...
