    Here's a look back at Week 12's action, and fantasy advice for the week ahead: WEEK 12 RECAP Bills 28, Lions 25: I feel like if Nyheim Hines was going to be a factor for Buffalo on offense, we would have seen it by now.

      Matt Rhule’s voice was on the other end of the phone line in Nebraska, and he wanted to make sure Carolina Panthers fans understood a few things. “I’m not bitter about being fired,” Rhule said when we talked Thursday in what was his first interview with any Charlotte-area reporter since he was jettisoned as Carolina Panthers head coach on Oct. 10.

            Japan scored twice early in the second half to come from behind to defeat Spain 2-1 in a result that put both teams into the last 16 of the World Cup. Ao Tanaka scored the winning goal from close range early in the second half. It took about two minutes for video review officials to confirm the ball hadn’t gone out of bounds before the goal. Álvaro Morata scored first for Spain in the 11th minute at Khalifa International Stadium. But Japan rallied after halftime. Ritsu Doan equalized in the 48th with a left-footed shot from outside the box. And Tanaka added the second one three minutes later.

            FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — One by one, the old Patriots axioms fell Thursday, a crumbling facade for a suddenly average franchise. Bill Belichick’s defense neutralizes an opponent’s strength? Bills receiver Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 92 yards and a touchdown, running through the ashes Justin Jefferson left after torching the Pats secondary last week. That same defense confuses quarterbacks? ...
