Antonio Brown reportedly involved in domestic dispute; no arrests made

A report recently surfaced stating seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown was involved in a domestic dispute in January, but he was not arrested.

TMZ Sports confirmed with police that sources say "a woman contacted the Hollywood Police Department in Florida mid-January and made a report alleging misconduct by Brown."

Details of the report remain unclear, but the cops did investigate the situation. 

News surrounding Brown's interest in playing for the 49ers have been heating up after rumors circulated he wanted out of Pittsburgh.

He's been keeping in close contact with San Francisco Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice for starters. Rice even said Brown admits he wants to play for the 49ers "really badly" and Brown went as far as following various members of the team and the team itself on social media. 

While we know social media follows can only mean so much, the rumors flying around a possible future between the two have been piling on.

Currently, Brown is spending time in Florida training for next season.

NFC playoff picture: Where 49ers stand in hopes of earning top seed

NFC playoff picture: Where 49ers stand in hopes of earning top seed

The 49ers bounced back in nail-biting fashion Sunday with their 36-26 win over the Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. 

San Francisco improved to 9-1 on the season after suffering its first loss of the season last week against the Seahawks. The final six weeks of the season will be extremely tough, but the 49ers still control their destiny in the NFC.

After Week 11, here is how the NFC playoff picture looks.

  1. San Francisco 49ers (9-1)
  2. Green Bay Packers (8-2)
  3. New Orleans Saints (8-2)
  4. Dallas Cowboys (6-4)
  5. Seattle Seahawks (8-2) 
  6. Minnesota Vikings (8-3)


Nothing has changed in the NFC over the past two weeks regarding the playoff picture, but that doesn't mean this will be the order come January. All but one team on the 49ers' remaining schedule appear to at least be playoff hopefuls. 

The 49ers and Packers will meet for an epic clash this upcoming week on "Sunday Night Football" at Levi's Stadium. A loss and Seahawks win over the Eagles would drop San Francisco out of the top spot in the NFC as a whole, and the NFC West.

It doesn't get much easier after the Packers game, too. The 49ers still have to face the Ravens (8-2), Saints, Falcons (3-7), Rams (6-4) and Seahawks. 

San Francisco has a brutal path to the playoffs but this team has shown resiliency in recent weeks. If QB Jimmy Garoppolo can continue to improve with rookie receiver Deebo Samuel emerging and the defense still one of the best in the league, the 49ers should have what it takes to push for a high seed in the NFC.

49ers become first NFL team to cash OVER bet with win vs. Cardinals

49ers become first NFL team to cash OVER bet with win vs. Cardinals

The 49ers made a lot of people happy Sunday, and not just their hordes of fans who exploded when Jeff Wilson Jr. scored with 31 seconds left to beat the Cardinals at Levi's Stadium.

The win showed the 49ers can bounce back from defeat, and it also made coach Kyle Shanahan's team the first to cash an OVER ticket on win totals this season. The 49ers' OVER/UNDER closed at eight wins, and they now sit at 9-1 after the 36-26 win over Arizona.

Run to the window and cash those tickets, Niner backers.

The NFL has a few teams that can hit their OVER with wins in Week 12.

The Ravens, Seahawks and Bills each can hit their OVER with Ws next week. The Ravens and Seahawks both closed at 8.5, while the 7-3 Bills closed at seven and have at least guaranteed backers a push.

As for the Raiders, their number was a six before it was taken off the board when Antonio Brown went on a guerilla campaign to get himself released. If you bet the OVER prior to that, then you can cash your ticket if the 6-4 Raiders beat the Jets next Sunday. 

Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Bosa and Co. have filled some people's pockets with extra Christmas money. Now, they must focus on the bigger picture starting with a Week 12 showdown with the Packers at Levi's Stadium.
