Deafness in Sport - Overcoming the Odds

In terms of American sport - and global sport - not only making the grade in the NFL, but playing for a Super Bowl-winning franchise is just about as high an accolade as it gets. But while Coleman would rightfully have celebrated Seattle's success, and considered it his career high-point, he might also have reflected that his greatest achievement to date would have been getting to the NFL in the first place.

Can the FA Cup Final be England's 'Super Bowl'?

I do think Britain's footballing body could do more to make the FA Cup final a bigger occasion on a national scale. There's no reason why the FA Cup final can't be an experience that grips the entirety of England in the days leading up to the event.

Whether you are celebrating Valentine's Day or not this year, it's certainly difficult to ignore. Of all the articles that have been written about the event, and we have certainly run our fair share on HuffPost UK, I don't believe there are any as poignant or heart wrenching as our blog from Guantanamo Bay resident Shaker Aamer.

The NFL has taken over Manhattan in preparation for the big game at MetLife Stadium and more than 160million Americans will tune in to see the grand finale of the season.

There's one aspect of the sport Stateside that doesn't subscribe to the same law of hyperbolic excess - the fans. If the rule that governs the rest of American life is observed, then those followers of MLB, NFL and the rest should find themselves reduced to orgasmic ecstasy by success and frothing rage by defeat.

The Chiefs have started the season as one of the best teams in the league and are sitting on a 6-0 record that only one other team in the league can boast... But things haven't always been so rosy for Kansas City. In fact it was only last season that they finished with a 2-14 record which was the worst in the league.

Charlie Lindlar | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Sport
Charlie Lindlar

Could Chip Kelly jump ship after only one season in the NFL? The answer, and I know this is a bit of a dramatic anti-climax, is no. At the risk of making myself sound a fool come January, there is no chance Kelly will swap Philly for LA this summer. There is a greater chance that Lane Kiffin is rehired.

Which Denver Broncos Team Are We Watching?

Jack Target | Posted 24.11.2013 | UK Sport
Jack Target

The Denver Broncos. They are good. Very good. They are one of, if not the, most dominant team in the AFC. They have an elite quarterback. They are one of the favourites to win the Super Bowl. And they wear orange. Doesn't that all sound familiar? Of course I am talking about the 2013 Denver Broncos but you could easily apply that to the Broncos of the '80s under John Elway.
