M&T Bank Stadium has earned a "Gold" rating from the U.S. Green Building Council , the highest rank the Washington-based nonprofit group has awarded to any existing NFL stadium to date under its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards.

Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, Chicago's Soldier Field and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., are the finalists to host the 2015 to 2018 men's lacrosse championships, the NCAA announced Wednesday. Notably absent was the state of Maryland; Baltimore has hosted the event five times in the past decade. The NCAA said this summer that in response to declining attendance at the event, it would consider holding the event at smaller venues , but Wednesday's announcement indicates that it will continue to hold the championships at NFL stadiums.

CHICAGO -- It has stood on the banks of Lake Michigan for three-quarters of a century, a columned fortress dedicated to fallen warriors and consecrated by great athletes.And now, just as it appeared time would conquer Soldier Field, a plan has emerged to not only save the historic stadium, but also to rebuild it to meet the upscale demands of the modern NFL, a transformation that would have been unimaginable to the stonemasons who built the place.Leaders of the city, state and Bears are near agreement on constructing a glitzy arena within the coliseum's faux-granite walls.

Baltimore Ravens fans who traveled to Chicago for Sunday's game against the Bears spent more than an hour in the sheltered concourse at Soldier Field, but that doesn't mean they stayed dry. "It was blowing sideways," said Neal Moorhouse, a known diehard fan from Federal Hill who goes by the nickname 'Carne Cabeza,' regarding the storm and tornado warning that caused a delay in the game of nearly two hours. "It was coming into the concourse. It's coming down in sheets. " Moorhouse had made the 10-hour drive to Chicago for the game with a group of friends and was staying at a friend's house in the city.

CHICAGO - Chicago, once the Second City, fell to third when Los Angeles surpassed it in population, and even third place is more than it usually achieves in the National Football League standings. But on Sept. 29, on ABC's Monday Night Football, the city will unveil to the nation a title-winner of sorts: the most expensive publicly funded stadium in the NFL. Locals don't have to be told that the renovation of Soldier Field does not appeal to every eye. Rather than tear down the World War I memorial, the Chicago Park District and the Bears agreed to preserve the exterior and replace the interior.

CHICAGO -- Before they last hosted an NFC championship game, they were the fabled 1985 Chicago Bears, and they defined brash. The Super Bowl Shuffle already was a hit, Mike Ditka was daring people to knock the chip off his shoulder and Buddy Ryan, their defensive coordinator, was correctly predicting they would force the Los Angeles Rams' Eric Dickerson into a few fumbles at Soldier Field.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker doesn't miss very often, regardless of his surroundings. He has made 16 straight field goals, one of the longest active streaks in the NFL, and he has made 48 of his 53 career field-goal attempts in the regular season. His 46-yard field goal at M&T Bank Stadium last Sunday was the fifth game-winner of his career. He has missed just three kicks on his home turf in two seasons. But as good as he has been kicking on synthetic surfaces, he has been even better on grass.

Al says … "The Eagles are what the NFL has become: very unpredictable. They were playing pretty well, then inexplicably lost to Oakland - how did that happen? - come back and kill the Giants, close game against Dallas but can't deliver, fall way behind in San Diego and rally but lose again. The one thing about the Eagles that people should know by now - the last few years this has happened - is they'll look like they're dead, and all of a sudden they play extremely well down the stretch."

Even with the World Series in Chicago, the Ravens won't get the benefit of operating in anonymity today. The White Sox may be commanding the bulk of the sports world's attention, but it's not a stretch to believe that the home city's attention will be locked, as it always is, on Soldier Field and the Bears. Nobody owns Chicago - not the Sox, the Cubs, the Bulls or the Blackhawks - the way the Bears do. Today's game should be a reminder. So should the daily reminiscences about the favorite team in the city's history, the Super Bowl champs of 20 years ago, who shuffled in and out of America's heart but took up permanent residence on the pedestal of Chicago sports.
