FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - In the NFL, the onside kick appeared to headed the way of the dinosaur to extinction. NFL's rule changes on kickoffs were designed to reduce the risk of injuries and concussions before the 2018 season, and they nearly erased the onside kick from the game. The Falcons, who lead the league in onside kicks (seven) and recoveries (two), have adapted to the rules under new ...

BATON ROUGE, LA. - LSU football hasn't all been a continual, three-month-long second-line dance, you know. While the once and future (?) king of the SEC has frolicked on offense - its quarterback becoming the first in conference history to throw for more than 4,000 yards and 40 touchdowns in a season - the cosmic counterbalance has been a defense unbecoming at times of a champion.

"Nobody is more disappointed than ...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Like all his Giants teammates, Saquon Barkley is not about to compare the skills of Daniel Jones vs. Eli Manning. There would be no winner. Yet when he looks back at the two good games he had against the Philadelphia Eagles in his rookie season, he might surmise that the one constant in both games was that Manning was his quarterback.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The Patriots were cruising. They were dominant and putting up historic numbers at an alarming rate. Through the first six games, the Patriots had allowed 48 points. Go back to some of the best defenses in NFL history and even they didn't look that good to start a season: The 2000 Baltimore Ravens allowed 65 points in their first six games and the 1986 Chicago Bears allowed ...

Every person experiences stress at one time or another. Hearing a co-worker or family member say they are stressed has become so common that most of us probably fail to give it a second thought. But stress is not to be ignored, according to Kelly Hagan, AssuredPartners regional vice president of operations.

Nearly five years ago, approximately 40 employees at AssuredPartners’ Lexington, Kentucky, office raced around the building in their desk chairs, hustled up stairwells and participated in other unusual activities for the right to win “medals” – which were actually small plastic condiment cups spray-painted gold, silver and bronze.

Treatment paradigms are changing for the end-user, and new insurance coverage provided by AssuredPartners is keeping up with the times with multiple programs aimed at ensuring customers receive the best care possible.
