Soccer matches are 90 minutes long, and most of the time the ball is nowhere near a goal and 18 of the 22 players on the pitch are walking. But there are stretches—two minutes here, two seconds there—in which the players do unimaginable things with the ball and work with their teammates in a way that suggests they share a single brain, and they seem more like wizards or artists or seers than athletes.

Chargers job listing says applicants must be willing to move to LA | Larry Brown Sports

The NFL has yet to make any official announcements about its future plans to move one or more teams to Los Angeles, but it seems highly likely that the San Diego Chargers are a top candidate.

Knee-deep in the long march to training camp, we're taking a look all this week at seven Cincinnati Bengals who could have breakout seasons in 2015. Whether it's because of their young age, previous performance or other factors, these players haven't had a chance to become significant pieces of the Bengals' system -- until now.

Where does the Browns secondary rank in the NFL?: Hey Mary Kay! |

Right now I'd rank the Browns secondary tied for tops in the league with the Seahawks'. With three Pro Bowlers in Joe Haden, Tashaun Gipson and Donte Whitner, the Browns can make a strong case for standing alone at No. 1 in the NFL. Last season, they finished second in the NFL with 21 interceptions, led the league in opposing quarterback passer rating (74.1) and with 99 passes defensed.
