Super Bowl LV preview: What to expect when Brady takes on Mahomes

Retired NFL players Jack Brewer and Mike Cox break down what to watch during the big game.

Andrew Luck has been out of the NFL for nearly 2 years and despite ramped-up rumors this week about his potential return, Indianapolis Colts CEO Jim Irsay nixed any chance of that happening.

After years of battling injuries, Luck abruptly retired prior to the start of the 2019 season, leaving the Colts’ quarterback situation in limbo.
