DeShawn Shead enjoyed a memorable day yesterday. His NFL team won ... and he won at life by getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend Jessica Martinez!

After the Seattle Seahawks beat the visiting Denver Broncos, 26-20, the 25-year-old defensive back provided the day's real fireworks in the Emerald City.

Cue Bruno Mars‘ aptly titled, “Marry You,” which began playing over the loudspeakers, and a message that read “Will You Marry Me Jessica,” on the scoreboard.

Shead's family and friends crowded around DeShawn, who had showered and gotten dressed, as he shocked Jessica by getting down on one knee on the field.

Needless to say, she accepted the proposal.

“Football brought me to Washington, for me to meet her, so I think this is a big part of our relationship,” Shead told local KIRO after the big moment.

Embattled former NFL player Ray Rice will reportedly argue that TMZ edited the now-infamous video of him knocking out Janay Palmer in an elevator.

What he's claiming likely amounts to nothing but mere semantics, however.

ESPN claims Rice will protest that a cleaned-up, whittled down and condensed version of the events that took place in the Atlantic City casino was leaked.

The only problem is that while Rice is technically right, he's also wrong.

The tape was indeed heavily edited for clarity, and this was noted by TMZ in its original post ... which also contained the raw video as source material.

Essentially, there are Ray Rice video "highlights" and the full version.

Not to mention, by crying foul over the editing, Rice is indirectly stating that there were circumstances that provoked him to knock out his then-fiancee.

Former NFL kicker Rob Bironas, a longtime staple of the Tennessee Titans, died Saturday night after a car accident near his home, police confirm.

Nashville officials say Bironas lost control on a curve in his 2009 GMC Yukon Denali and crashed after 11 p.m. less than a mile from his home.

Police said the athlete's SUV was speeding when it went off the road and hit a line of trees before coming to a stop upside down in a culvert.

Bironas was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Police said there was no evidence of alcohol or drugs.

He was just 36 years old.

The Titans released Bironas in March after nine seasons. He  had worked out earlier this week for the Detroit Lions and for Tampa Bay this offseason.

He was married to Rachel Bradshaw, daughter of Hall of Fame member Terry Bradshaw, who did not appear on the Fox NFL pregame show to be with his daughter.

Kim Kardashian has been at the center of plenty fake magazine cover stories.

Most recently, for example, Life & Style wrote that Kardashian has been betrayed by her sisters; while the same tabloid reported previously that Kardashian is both pregnant and newly single.

But what follows is a different sort of made-up Kim Kardashian allegation.

The geniuses at Wake Forest Photoshopped a People magazine photo of Kardashian and Kengera Daniel for a recent recruiting trip made by this star defensive tackle prospect.

It pretended as though Kengera and Kim were a power couple nicknamed “KimGera” and it claimed Kim really wants to see Daniel in a Demon Deacons uniform.

"It did impress," the 6-foot-5, 240-pound senior told ESPN. "But I haven't really told anyone I was a Kim K. fan. I guess they assume all guys are. But it's a cool edit."

Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals was arrested on domestic violence charges Wednesday, the latest in a string of NFL public relations nightmares.

Not even 24 hours before Dwyer’s arrest, the Minnesota Vikings banned Adrian Peterson, a star running back facing child abuse charges, indefinitely.

The Carolina Panthers recently did the same with Greg Hardy, a defensive end who is currently appealing a domestic violence case of his own.

All of these cases arose, or at least made national news, following the stunning release of the Ray Rice video in which he knocks out his now-wife.

Rice was released by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended by the NFL, which has been under heavy criticism for its handling of that case and others.

The Phoenix police, in a statement, said detectives arrested Dwyer, a running back, in Tempe on charges of aggravated assault in a domestic violence case.

The investigation stemmed from two separate episodes at his home in July.

Adrian Peterson is deactivated indefinitely from the Minnesota Vikinis a stunning development for one of the most prolific and talented athletes in professional football.

Having used a switch to "whoop" his son, age four years, until he bled so badly that Peterson's baby mama was concerned, the NFL star faces child abuse charges.

After briefly being reinstated by the team while the legal process plays out, the 28-year-old Peterson was banned from the Vikings a second time this week.

The perennial Pro Bowler still on Twitter, though. Rest assured ...

  • Adrian Peterson Quote
  • Adrian Peterson on the Vikings

Adrian shared an inspirational image on the social network today, drawing strength from the sage wisdom available exclusively on Instaquote (dot) com.

The quote refers to rising above the doubters and the distractions, remaining focused on what matters and staying the course in pursuit of one's goal.

We're probably reading too much into one Twitter post, we realize.

Still, Adrian Peterson posted this, and by virtue of that, is at least tangentially tying himself to these words and viewing himself as a man who must suffer hardships.

Ones he will overcome, he implies, through unyielding resolve.

Jameis Winston has been suspended by Florida State University.

For being a total moron, basically.

The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback will sit out the first half of this Saturday's game against Clemson after he stood on a table in the student union and shouted:

"F-ck her right in the pus-y!"

The obscenity, which has grown into a viral trend in which idiots people heckle reporters with it during a live shot, was heard by a number of students, many of whom brought it to the administration's attention via Twitter.

Lolo Jones was the first celebrity to get the chop this season on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show, and it's safe to say she's not taking it well.

The 32-year-old Olympic track star did the obvious thing immediately after being sent home, logging in to Facebook and unleashing an epic rant.

Jones, who has been widely hyped but has failed to deliver as an athlete on some of the biggest stages in her sport, was clearly stung by her DWTS exit.

Lolo's past failures to meet expectations were weighing on her. She writes:

"When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics and that people constantly tease me about. I thought oh no here it comes again."

"People are going to ridicule me. I'm so tired of feeling embarrassed."

As the NFL slowly becomes nothing more than a safe place where young men can put on helmets to keep from being recognized by their mug shots, we look to the players who haven't been arrested for assaulting women or children hoping to find some insight and actual human compassion.

What we get instead is a whole lot of ignorant BS being spewed in interviews and on Twitter:

Reggie Bush Daughter

Granted, many current and former players spoke out in the wake of the Ray Rice scandal and expressed their beliefs that the Ravens RB should be banned from the league.

Similarly, Vikings legend and ESPN commentator Cris Carter gave a heartfelt speech about the horrors of violence against kids after Adrian Peterson was indicted for child abuse.

Sadly, however, some of the NFL's most recognized stars don't realize that the only acceptable response to finding out one of your co-workers physically attacked his wife or child is, "Why is dude not in prison?"

For example, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster recently expressed his belief that Peterson is being persecuted for "political" reasons.

And then there's Reggie Bush...

It's a depressing time to be a sports fan, isn't it?

The Vikings have suspended Adrian Peterson until his child abuse case is resolved. That Ray Rice video of the Baltimore Ravens running back punching out his fiancee continues to send shudders around the NFL. And Derek Jeter is about to retire.

So thank goodness for Bryan Cranston.

The Emmy Award-winning actor is featured in the following ad for the Major League Baseball postseason, starring in a pretend one-man show that depicts Cranston as Jeter, Carlton Fisk, Kirk Gibson and other all-time greats.

He reenacts famous plays. He takes a ballerina class. He dons eye black.

This is a man who created arguably the most iconic character in television history... yet this commercial is his finest work to date. It's amazing. It's hilarious. And it's an absolute must-watch:

Bryan Cranston for ALL the awards, people. Emmys. Oscars. MVP trophies. Just send all shipments to this star forever and ever.
