NFL Power Rankings: Make Your Super Bowl Pick

All the hard work from the regular season has come down to this: the playoffs. Four teams will get a rest, while eight others will play do-or-die games in the Wild Card weekend. Right now, Sports of Boston’s top football minds have ranked the remaining 12 teams and who they will see in the Super […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

With just one week left before the playoffs are set, this is the final installment of the NFL’s weekly playoff hypotheticals. Plenty of surprises have taken place this past week (New Orleans and Indy BOTH lose on home turf?) and many are yet to take place (seven, count ‘em, seven) teams are still alive for […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

The pieces are starting to fall into place. Five of the eight divisions have been officially clinched. Once powerful contenders (Giants, Broncos, Steelers) and teams that once had high expectations (Titans, Falcons, Panthers) are faltering, while newcomers (Saints, Bengals) are making headlines. In the NFC, only the Giants are on the outside looking in, while […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three weeks left until the playoffs are set. Speaking of three, only three teams have guaranteed themselves a playoff spot. In the AFC alone, four teams are tied for the last wild card spot, and three teams are one game behind them. The Colts have already clinched home field advantage, and while the Saints […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

75% of the season is now over, but the playoff situation is still very much up in the air, with only the two unbeaten teams having secured spots so far. The Bengals dropped a spot, and the Pats showed why they’ll have a hard time advancing. We’re really seeing teams fight hard and fast for […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 12

Two unbeaten teams remain, looking to be on a collision course for the Super Bowl. And the Colts have become the first team to guarantee themselves a playoff spot. As always, the wildcard spots are still very much up for grabs and are the most interesting race; six teams in the AFC alone are not […]

High Five/Low Five: Week 12

And life goes on. We’ve eaten our turkey. We’ve rooted on our local high school football team. We’ve enjoyed time with our family. Ok, exchange the word “enjoyed” with “endured” in most cases. And we’ve now woken up from our tryptophan-induced slumber. There’s nothing left to do but to focus on what’s left on our […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

We’re getting close to January, and there is still much to be decided. Mathematically, every team is still in the race (even the Browns and Buccaneers, but we can forget about them). Several 6-4 teams are tied with each other for wild card slots. Two 10-0 teams remain, though only one of them is in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

More than half way through, the playoff situation is starting to take shape. The Colts are in reasonable command in the East (ick) over Cincinnati. The Vikings and Saints are still dueling for first in the West. The Wild Card races are the most interesting by far. At 5-4 after starting 5-0, not playing this […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

What a week. The Giants continued their fall from grace. Tennessee is trying to mount what would have to be considered one of the largest NFL comebacks ever from 0-6. New Orleans came back again against a team they probably should never have been trailing by a lot. Even Tampa Bay got in on the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

And then there were two. With Denver dropping to Baltimore, the Colts and Saints are left as the only unbeaten teams in the NFL. The Rams and Titans finally won, leaving the Buccaneers, on a bye week, as the only winless team left. The long-touted return of Brett Favre to Green Bay ended with the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Things in the NFL have remained more or less stable from last week, with the top dogs still in place. Though Brett Favre would probably have rather had more than a few mulligans. Each conference has seen only one potential playoff spot change hands; the NFC reformed itself to look more like last year while […]

UConn’s DE Cody Brown to the Cardinals

Connecticut is having a draft field day, landing its fourth prospect in the NFL, just one behind USC’s five picks so far.  The latest pick was the penultimate selection of the second round, going to Super Bowl runner up Arizona Cardinals, who look to improve their defense to complement their explosive offense.  Brown, who hails […]

Live Blog: Super Bowl 43

Super Bowl XLIII Expert Picks

The Patriots may not be in the big game this year, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy a good ol’ fashioned Super Bowl Pick ‘Em. Two of our staff writers, Geoff and Reid, have the exact same picks. If they tie for the win, a coin flip will decide the winner of the […]
