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.
To be honest, I struggled with my NFL Week 14 FanDuel selections.
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.
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.
Looking for the best Week 11 investments in the wildly popular FanDuel contest? We provide some recommended plays, along with dark horses and some players I might shy away from.
Words escaped me as I watched the Chicago Bears look like a happy but blind birthday kid aimlessly swinging at an pinata against the rival Green Bay Packers. I didn’t expect the Bears to win at Lambeau, but I did expect some effort or, at the very least, not an embarrassing performance.
A quick look at the NFL standings suggests a mad stretch run to the playoffs begins in Week 10.
As the calendar turns to November and the cold starts to carry some bite, the NFL’s contenders will separate themselves from the pretenders. At the season’s halfway point, this weeks Against The Spread continues to evaluate trends along with other interesting nuggets.
I have a very special message for Packers Nation. It contains five letters: P – A – N – I – C.
