Ray Rice's Wife on Elevator Incident: "This Isn’t Us"

In an interview with “Today," Ray Rice's wife, Janay, spoke publicly for the first time since the former Baltimore Ravens running back was suspended indefinitely by the NFL after video of him hitting his then-fiancee was released. After being knocked unconscious, Janay Rice said to Matt Lauer she was “furious,” adding that “we came home and we didn't talk the entire ride.” But she also said that “in the back of my mind and in my heart I knew that our relationship wouldn't be over because I know that this isn't us and it's not him.” On Friday, Rice won his appeal of the indefinite suspension handed down in September. The exclusive interviews will air Monday and Tuesday on “Today.” Read »

104K Remain Without Power After Nor'easter

For a second day, 175,000 homes from West Virginia to Maine remained without power after a winter storm that snarled Thanksgiving travel plans and led to massive flight cancellations and delays, NBC News reported. Utility crews were able to restore power to 70,000 more homes and businesses by 5:30 p.m. ET, however 104,000 still remained in the dark.
