THE NOW-SHUTTERED Blue Horizon is a marvelous place to watch boxing, but it lacks certain amenities. Despite improvements made to the historic facility in recent years, some fighters still dressed behind bed sheets and hung their street clothes on nails. The Arena in South Philadelphia, formerly known as the New Alhambra, is another gritty, no-frills joint. It is the sort of venue fighters appear in on the way up, or the way down. Welterweight contender Mike Jones knows much of such hardscrabble punching pits, having fought once at the Blue Horizon and 11 times at the New Alhambra.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Tony Romo's ribs held up just fine. So did Dan Bailey's leg. Romo persevered through pain to lead enough deep drives to set up Bailey for six field goals, including a 40-yarder with 1:57 left to give the Cowboys an 18-16 victory over the Redskins last night. Dallas' Anthony Spencer chopped the ball from Washington's Rex Grossman with 28 seconds left, and linebacker Sean Lee recovered it, setting off a celebration inside Cowboys Stadium. Dallas coach Jason Garrett dropped to a knee and pumped his fist wildly at being 2-1 - guaranteeing no repeat of last year's miserable 1-7 start.

Pollard had committed to Penn State during the spring but was later told Penn State couldn't make a commitment to him until he improved academically. Penn State continued to remain in touch.

ARLINGTON, Texas - A week ago, Florida Gulf Coast University was just another overlooked No. 15 seed - a long shot at best to nearly everyone eyeballing their NCAA tournament brackets. Now the Eagles are the high-flying show from "Dunk City" in the Round of 16, the darlings of the South Regional, and a bracket-busting team everybody is talking about even when surrounded by former national champions Michigan, Kansas, and Florida. "Things have changed dramatically," FGCU coach Andy Enfield said.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys came out with a sense of urgency, as though they had something to accomplish. They wound up having a great weekend that put them back in first place in the NFC East. And yet, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is approaching this Saturday's game against the Eagles with trepidation. "Well, after what happened to us in Philadelphia, there's no confidence," Jones said after the Cowboys won at Tampa Bay on Saturday night.

THE HOUSTON Texans are hoping two massive new video screens will help lure the 2017 Super Bowl to Reliant Stadium. The Texans are in the process of installing the video boards, which will be ready for use in Houston's first preseason game in August. Cowboys Stadium in Arlington currently has the biggest screens, and Houston's will be about 30 percent larger than those. The two new boards will have about six times the area as the current video boards and will be placed in each end zone.
