Regardless of what happened Sunday night in Glendale, Tom Brady was going to go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game. But after helping spark the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in Super Bowl history, Brady now finds himself on equal footing with childhood idol Joe Montana in the annals of NFL history. […]
Bill Belichick has accomplished a ton throughout the course of his Hall of Fame coaching career, including 211 regular-season wins, an NFL-record 21 postseason victories and three Super Bowl titles. But on Saturday afternoon, he delivered his magnum opus.
I have mostly ignored the ongoing NFL playoff games, but I found myself on the couch watching the last quarter of the Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers game on Sunday. I turned it on just in time to see the reaction to the reversed Dez Bryant fourth-down reception. The overturned call would end the Cowboys’ drive and season, and I […]
The Bengals fell to the the Indianapolis Colts 26-10 on Sunday in what can only be described as an anemic performance. Nothing went right and Marvin Lewis deserves the blame.
It’s finally over, Bears fans.
No more watching a passionless, unmotivated football team every week. Your energy can now be used watching the Bulls and Blackhawks – teams that are among the best in their respective leagues.
It all comes down to this, one last Sunday to close the 2014 NFL regular season.
With most fantasy seasons now completed attention this Sunday focuses on daily games, with several strategies in play and all 32 teams in action.
Picking games in the final two weeks of the NFL regular season tends to be less complicated as teams have different agendas heading towards the end of the year.
In recent years Week 17 has been designated for divisional play, but this season, Week 15 provides a preview with 11 divisional games, 10 of which have playoff implications.
And I have gained some separation from the .500 level, this is always a good time to finish strong.
Unlike the charade that will envelop college football this weekend, it is sheer wins and losses that will determine the NFL playoff field during the next four weeks.
There will be no 12-person committee sitting behind closed doors to determine who is worthy of championship contention. All division winners (even the NFC South) and two wild cards from each conference get in. Style points and who teams played will not matter.
You see the adverts about selecting your FanDuel lineup in just seconds. Just click Jamaal Charles Le’Veon Bell, Demaryius Thomas, Odell Beckham, et al. But obviously no one can create an All-Star team that will fit under the $60,000 cap. The utilization of value plays is what makes it all work. Fortunately, strategies exist in Week 13 for contestants to take advantage of matchups while allowing cap room for elite players.
It is one thing to be embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks on your own turf before a national television audience, it is another realizing Colin Kaepernick has regressed as spectacularly as Robert Griffin III over the past two years. And it is quite another for the National Broadcasting Corporation to set up shop on your team’s midfield logo and have Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman eat turkey.
With all the byes now complete, 80 games remain over the final five weeks of the 2014 football season. Just in time for Thanksgiving, some of the NFL biggest turkeys have brought their act to the buffet table. And then there is the curious tale of the NFC South.
On the heels of last week’s hugely successful Polar Vortex edition of Against The Spread we bring you the even harsher Lake Effect version.
If you happen to be hunkered down in a western New York snow cave while reading this, don’t fear. Not only do I bring you successful picks, but also the best FanDuel plays for Week 12.
In Gene Rayburn style, a local radio station asked the following Sunday morning via Facebook:
“Melvin Gordon’s record-breaking 408 yard rushing day is the greatest athletic performance since ________.”
Many answered Aaron Rodgers throwing six touchdowns in the first half six days earlier. Gordon’s historic Saturday remained the greatest event until Rodgers stepped back onto Lambeau Field less than 24 hours later.
