Marvin Lewis is no longer head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals. The 60-year-old has been with the Bengals for 16 seasons and had a 131-122-3 record with the team. 

Whether it’s an All-Star Game, a Final Four tournament or a pro-sports draft, hosting big events costs local organizers money. A bill signed by Gov. John Kasich this month will give cities, counties and local host committees more help hosting such events.

Less than a week after firing head coach Hue Jackson, the Browns (2-5-1) face a tough Kansas City Chiefs team at home. The Chiefs are 7-1 and in first place in the AFC West. 

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says this will likely be a painful game for Browns fans to watch. However, he says this matchup should also give fans hope.

That's because Browns General Manager John Dorsey gets most of the credit for building a winning team in Kansas City. Dorsey was their general manager from 2013 through 2016.

Hue Jackson's failed, flawed tenure with the Cleveland Browns is finally over.

The Cleveland Browns bounced back from their week 4 loss against the Oakland Raiders with a big win against the Baltimore Ravens. With a record of 2-2-1, every game has been a close call, and WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says that's exactly what's making it fun for Browns fans.

The National Football League and the NFL Players Association have agreed to suspend enforcement of new rules requiring players to stand during the pregame rendition of the national anthem, after a report that the Miami Dolphins would fine and/or suspend players for up to four games for violating the policy.

CTE has been part of the national lexicon in the U.S. since the 2015 movie Concussion dramatized the discovery of this degenerative brain disease among football players.

The NFL had intended for its rule to achieve a resolution.

Unveiling a new policy after months of controversy and debate over players taking a knee or otherwise making statements during the national anthem, the NFL says all of its athletes and staff "shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem" if they're on the field.
