CINCINNATI (AP) — They do things a little differently in the AFC North.

They're patient with their coaches and quarterbacks -- well, with the exception of Cleveland, which is in a league of its own when it comes to change. They develop a style and stick with it, win or lose.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — On the day the Arizona Cardinals went back to work for the first time since Darnell Dockett went down with a knee injury, the impact of losing the big defensive tackle for the season was softened a bit by the return of safety Tyrann Mathieu and nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu.

The 'Honey Badger' Mathieu, a crucial component of Arizona's talented secondary, went down in the 13th game of his impressive rookie season a year ago with a torn ACL and LCL....

MIAMI (AP) — Another game, more late-inning drama for the Miami Marlins.

This time, just not enough.

Marcell Ozuna and Jarrod Saltalamacchia both hit solo home runs in the ninth and Miami had the tying run on later in the inning, but the Marlins ended their homestand with a 5-4 loss to the Texas Rangers on Wednesday afternoon.

A game that started about 13 hours after the Marlins had another last at-bat win in their improbable try...

The Indians said Dodgers' physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache confirmed Swisher has chronic medial knee...
