>>Marshall Apologizes To Sapp

Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is apologizing for firing back at former NFL star Warren Sapp with some harsh comments - even though he meant what he said.

He says he's sorry for going public with his feelings and probably should have "kept it private."

Instead, he lashed back at Sapp in an online video Monday for calling him a "retard" in a radio interview. He also posted on Twitter later that day that Sapp apparently challenged him to a fight.

On Thursday, Marshall said he had exchanged emails with Sapp, an NFL Network analyst, before posting the video and that it didn't go well. All that stemmed from an interview with the syndicated "The Dan Patrick Show" in which he ripped Marshall for "talking about Shannon Sharpe."

>>Seahawks Butt Heads With Rams In St. Louis

(St. Louis, MO)  --  Fresh off their controversial Monday night win over Green Bay, the Seattle Seahawks will try to make it three in-a-row as they go up against the NFC West rival Rams in St. Louis.  The Seahawks beat the Packers, 14-12, on the final play when an apparent interception in the end zone by Green Bay was ruled a simultaneous catch and touchdown by Golden Tate.  Now 2-and-1, Seattle begins a stretch of four road games in five weeks.  The Rams are looking to recover from a 23-6 setback at Chicago.  St. Louis was limited to just 160 total yards, with QB Sam Bradford getting sacked six times and throwing two picks.  The 1-and-2 Rams have lost three straight to Seattle.
