Titans: a new stadium?
The Titans are currently in discussions with the city of Nashville for the renovation of Nissan Stadium, as confirmed by a member of the tourist board on local radio WNSR. If the latter first advanced a cost of 600 million dollars for the work, according to a spokesperson for the franchise, the overall bill could be around double that amount and explained to Nate Rau of Axios that they have “need to take a step back and reassess if stadium renovation is the best option in the long term and explore other solutions”.
One of the solutions being the construction of a new stadium as confirmed by the mayor of the city John Cooper:

Rams: the very borderline behavior of Matthew Stafford
During the Rams celebration, Kelly Smiley, photographer for the franchise, fell from the stage trying to step back to take a picture. She suffers from a fractured spine and is still under observation.
During this accident, Matthew Stafford behaved to say the least astonishing. Having visibly watered the recent Super Bowl victory, he saw the photographer fall but preferred to turn around.
Thursday, perhaps to compensate for the effect of the images, the player and his wife announced that they will pay the medical expenses of the photographer, and that they will also replace his two cameras, broken in the fall.
