Get Patriots game stats and the inside scoop on the season with The Boston Globe's Point After newsletter delivered for free to your inbox. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 47-year-old Englishwoman has seen the best and worst that Twitter would have to offer the American football player who shares her name. Dee Ford, of Kent, England, told the Kansas City Star that her “phone was going off literally nonstop” due to angry tweets from Kansas City Chiefs fans who thought they were venting at linebacker Dee Ford following his critical late penalty in last weekend’s AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots. She says Ford “doesn’t deserve” the vitriol. The player isn’t on Twitter, but he was no stranger to the Englishwoman. Five years ago, when the player was still at Auburn, someone in the school’s athletic department tagged the woman in a congratulatory tweet after the player was named most valuable player of the … [Read more...] about Chiefs fans vent on Twitter at Englishwoman named Dee Ford
The New England Patriots are headed to Super Bowl LIII, and they likely have Dee Ford’s left arm to thank. During the final minute of the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s AFC Championship Game, the Patriots were driving in Kansas City Chiefs territory in need of a touchdown to keep their season alive. For a moment, it looked dead. On a third-and-10 play from the Chiefs’ 34 yard line, Tom Brady thew a pass that tipped off Rob Gronkowski’s hands and into those of cornerback Charvarius Ward, who then fumbled the ball out of bounds. The interception would have given the Chiefs possession of the ball — up by four with 54 seconds left — with the opportunity to run out the clock and end game, if not for a yellow flag on the field. The pivotal call was against Ford, the Chiefs’ Pro-Bowl outside linebacker, for having illegally lined up in the neutral zone, the ball-length space that extends to the sidelines. Replays appeared to confirm that the … [Read more...] about Here’s what Dee Ford had to say about his game-costing offsides penalty
Justin Rogers The Detroit News Published 12:34 PM EST Dec 20, 2018 Allen Park — The Detroit Lions have been eliminated from postseason contention, but the mail is still coming in. That would be Nick Bawden, who suffered a torn ACL during OTAs. I see him from time to time in the locker room. He's walking fine and regularly attending team meetings, getting those mental reps, but there's little else to report at this time. He recently declined an interview request, per team instruction. I would imagine he'll be ready to go when the Lions return for the offseason program next April. I'd give Damon Harrison an invite to the Pro Bowl. It's tough to argue against the three interior lineman who made the game — Aaron Donald, Fletcher Cox and Akiem Hicks — but Harrison is consistently dominant as a run-stuffer. That's an important skill that doesn't draw attention like sacks. And it's pretty mind-blowing that he leads all defensive … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions mailbag: Damon Harrison deserves Pro Bowl invitation
