Road warriors: Bucs win 31-26 at Green Bay, reach Super Bowl

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ road magic have them heading home to the Super Bowl, the first team to play in one on their home field.

Brady owns six Super Bowl rings with New England and now heads to his 10th NFL championship game with his new team. With help from a stifling pass rush and a curious late call on fourth and goal by the Packers, Brady and the Bucs beat top-seeded Green Bay 31-26 for the NFC title Sunday.

The Bucs (14-5) earned their franchise-record eighth consecutive road victory to reach the Super Bowl for the first time since their 2002 championship season.

They were helped by a strange decision by Packers coach Matt LaFleur with just over two minutes remaining and down by five points. On fourth-and-goal, he elected to kick a field goal. Tampa Bay then ran out the clock on the Packers (14-4)... Read More

FBI looking to return personal items left at 1 October shooting site

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- The FBI wants to give closure to survivors of the 2017 Route 91 Harvest music festival. Personal items from that horrific night in Las Vegas need to be returned.

The FBI worked with a company to catalog and photograph each item left behind on October 1, 2017.

There are hundreds of items, from cell phones to keychains, that have yet to be returned to their owners. Emails and letters have been sent to survivors on file.

The Vegas Strong Resiliency Center says obtaining these personal items will aid in the healing process.

"When a tragedy like this happens, they loose that sense of safety and control of their own belongings. Getting those back restores some of that control," Tennille Pereira with the center said.

The center is a resource and information hub for all those impacted by the 1 October shooting... Read More
