If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

Ten weeks into the season, and there are finally no unbeatens remaining. Yes, the Falcons finally lost, but it was still a great game. Houston helped them out by handing Chicago a loss, but that wasn’t a shameful loss either. As if there wasn’t enough action so far, things are only picking up, so let’s […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

Nine weeks into the season, many teams still have legitimate chances of making waves. The Vikings are down, the Steelers are up and the Falcons are still (barely) unbeaten. Three AFC divisions are only led by a game, so not only are the Wildcard slots up for grabs, the seeding overall is still chaotic. In […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

We’re halfway through the season for many teams, and many divisions are starting to open up. The Wildcard races are still pretty interesting, being continually shaken up with new teams.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Seven weeks into the season, and there’s still no shortage of dramatic games. The Patriots barely avoided another upset. So did the Giants, for that matter. Houston took command of the AFC. San Francisco took over their division. The Wildcard situation, tight as it is, makes for a constantly shifting group of teams. With everything […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 6

Six weeks into the season, many teams are finding it difficult to pull ahead in their divisions. The juggernauts of Baltimore, Houston and Atlanta are the only ones to lead their divisions by more than one game. The AFC East is in a four-way tie, and the NFC West is in a three-way lead, with […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

After Week 5, there have been plenty of highlights. The Saints finally won. The Cardinals finally lost. The AFC North is once again a power division. All NFC West teams are somehow above .500. Everyone except the Browns has won. Everyone except the Texans and Falcons has lost. The standings are undergoing changes, so let’s […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

And just like that, a quarter of the NFL season is already behind us. That pesky lockout of the officials ended in time for Week 4. Not a moment too soon for everyone, but even after the regular refs were back, the Packers had trouble getting a break against the Saints. It a big surprise […]

NFL Replacement Officials Wear Out Welcome During Seahawks-Packers on MNF

Everyone is talking about how poorly the replacement officials are doing, and I can’t say I’m surprised at how bad the first three weeks of the season have turned out. No one could have thought these refs, who are mostly from high school, junior college, or even arena football, could handle the speed and pressure […]

Patriots Report Card: Week 3 vs. Ravens

Before Sunday’s New England Patriots-Baltimore Ravens game, noted actor (also Ravens linebacker) Ray Lewis said, “Revenge is a dish best served cold. We on fire tonight.” Facing a mind like that, the Patriots should count themselves lucky they just lost, as opposed to waking up tied to a chair in a basement somewhere. But lose […]

Video: Did Ravens Kicker Justin Tucker Miss the Field Goal vs. Patriots?

Say what you want about the horrendous officiating in the Patriots’ 31-30 loss to the Ravens on Sunday Night Football, but if kicker Justin Tucker misses that game-winning field goal, all is well. Unfortunately for New England fans, he did not… Wait, you say he actually DID miss that field goal? You be the judge:

After the first-ever home-opening loss at Gillette Stadium, New England looks to bounce back in primetime Sunday night against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in a rematch of the 2011 AFC Championship.

New England Patriots Report Card: AFC Championship

The Baltimore Ravens shut down the New England Patriots’ receivers in Sunday’s AFC Championship, rattled Tom Brady and held the Patriots to their fewest points since October. And they still didn’t win. The Patriots beat the Ravens, 23-20, advancing to their fifth Super Bowl of the new millennium when Ravens place-kicker Billy Cundiff badly missed […]

Position Comparison: Patriots vs Ravens

Quarterback: Advantage Patriots This is an obvious one. With Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers eliminated, Tom Brady is unquestionably the best quarterback left in the playoffs. After a regular season that saw Brady break Dan Marino‚Äôs yardage record, Brady followed it up with six touchdowns and 363 yards against the Broncos last week. Joe Flacco […]
