In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪ It’s to the NFL’s advantage to drag out its Deflategate fiasco so it can take attention away from the league’s concussion issue.

▪ The Dodgers obviously thought they were getting a middle reliever when they acquired Chase Utley.

▪ It may not be a sophomore jinx, but something is dogging Republic FC.

▪ As hollow victories go, being relevant in a final round will have to do for Tiger Woods.

▪ Quarterback Aaron Rodgers calls a preseason game “meaningless,” proving he’s not just good at reading defenses.
