Cutler, Bears rally past 49ers

Jay Cutler threw three fourth-quarter touchdown passes, and the Chicago Bears completed a comeback from a 17-point deficit, spoiling the regular-season debut of the 49ers' new stadium with a 28-20 victory over San Francisco on Sunday night. The Bears intercepted 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick three times, then stopped San Francisco on downs at the Chicago 17 with a little more than a minute to go to record their first win of the season after a disappointing loss to the Buffalo Bills in the opener.

the Packers Ground the Jets at Lambeau

New York appeared to tie it with 5 minutes left on a 37-yard touchdown catch by Jeremy Kerley on fourth down _ but it was negated because the Jets called a timeout from the sideline just before the snap. The Packers held on from there to avoid its first 0-2 start since 2006.

Peterson case creates new crisis for NFL

Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson's booking on a child abuse charge Saturday has created another crisis for the embattled NFL, already derided for not responding strongly enough to acts of domestic violence by its players. In the eyes of a Texas grand jury, Peterson crossed the line when he repeatedly struck his son with a tree branch, or switch, in May. Peterson's attorney has said he has never run from what happened -- and that Peterson was inflicting the same discipline he endured as a child.

NFL endures one of its worst weeks ever

In the span of five days, America's favorite sport bombarded fans with a video of one player punching his wife, details about a former MVP hitting his son with a tree branch, reminders of two more lingering domestic violence cases - all being overseen by a commissioner, Roger Goodell, who has looked ill-suited to handle any of it. Friday also brought news that speaks to the oversized violence of the game: One story about a study that showed nearly three in 10 ex-players face Alzheimer's or moderate dementia; and another about the long-awaited implementation of a policy to test for human growth hormone.

Ray Rice saga puts quiet Ravens owner in spotlight

In this Jan. 13, 2013, file photo, Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti speaks with reporters in New Orleans. In the wake of the Ray Rice domestic violence fallout, Bisciotti said he let fans down by not investigating the incident as aggressively as he should have, in part because he wanted to believe his former star running back hadn't viciously punched his then-fiancee the way an explicit video showed he had.

What Chris Brown would say to Ray Rice

In an interview with MTV's Sway Calloway Thursday, Brown opened up about his own history with domestic violence in light of Rice being cut from the Baltimore Ravens and suspended from the league after a leaked video depicted the player punching his now-wife, Janay Rice. "To Ray or anybody else, because I'm not better than the next man, I can just say I've been down that road," Brown told MTV News.
