Colts owner Jim Irsay’s account tweets porn in apparent case of hacking

  • NFL team owner sends out nude image of model early Thursday morning
  • Irsay had said in previous days that his account had been compromised

Indianapolis Colts fans had their Twitter timeline spiced up early on Thursday morning after their owner’s account tweeted out a picture of a nude woman.

Whether Jim Irsay was frantically scouring the internet for porn is doubtful: on 16 June he warned he had been hacked, and a later tweet was blank and addressed to members of the media and the NBA’s Indiana Pacers.

NFL weekend predictions: Giants to end Lions’ winning streak

The Lions are riding a five-game winning run, but Matthew Stafford’s finger injury could spell trouble. Plus, go for the Vikings, Steelers and Cardinals

The finish line is in sight. Only three weeks remain in the NFL’s regular season, and that means you only have three more shots at a clean sweep in our Pick Six contest. Nobody managed it in week 14, although castigers did make a big move up to the top of our overall leaderboard with a solid five out of six.

The NFL needs help when even its marquee games stink

As much as we love the idea of every team having an equal chance, the NFL is more entertaining when there are a few Goliaths out there

At this time last year there were five undefeated teams in the NFL. As of right now, there are zero. The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings 21-10 on Sunday, handing Sam Bradford and Co their first loss of the season and dropping their record to 5-1. There’s been a clear shift in the NFL towards parity over the last 12 months, and it may not be a great one for the immediate health of the league, especially after the onslaught of ugly games that have been bombarding viewers of late.

The Vikings-Eagles was Exhibit A (Exhibit B, the stinker between the Cardinals and Seahawks was, unfortunately, to follow later). The two teams combined for five turnovers in the game’s first quarter alone. Philadelphia exploited Minnesota’s battered offensive line: Bradford was sacked six times by his old team, fumbled twice and threw for just one touchdown to go along with an interception. The Vikings offense managed just 93 yards rushing and couldn’t capitalize on Eagles QB Carson Wentz’s two early interceptions. And the Cardinals-Seahawks game was even worse: two of the best quarterbacks in the league failed to throw a single touchdown pass between them over four excruciating quarters and overtime, before the kickers – men whose only job is to kick a football quite far – missed the chippiest of chip shots to leave those viewers still watching with a 6-6 scoreline. NFL.com tried to sell it as a “historic tie” on Monday morning, that’s one way of describing it.

Wembley win finally gives Jacksonville Jaguars something to write home about

Amid all the usual razzmatazz, the NFL’s latest visit to London brought rare joy for Jacksonville Jaguars as they left it late to see off Indianapolis Colts

Pitchside pyrotechnics, pillars of popcorn and a mascot descending from the roof on a zip line. The National Football League celebrated a decade of regular season games at Wembley as only it knows how. There was even a first win of this season for London’s “home” team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, who survived a wild fourth-quarter rally to beat the Indianapolis Colts 30-27.

This is the fourth successive year in which the Jaguars have given up a game at their EverBank Field stadium to host one instead across the pond, and they are committed to return for at least another four. The hope back in 2013 was that a young franchise with a new owner and ambitious plans would be ready to develop into a contender around now. Even in victory here, it was plain that they remain some way off.
