If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Seven weeks into the season, there is only one unbeaten team left (Kansas City) and two winless teams (Tampa and Jacksonville). The AFC is starting to clump up.

Chad Johnson Spanks Attorney in Court, Gets 30 Days in Jail

The artist formerly known as Ochocinco is at it again. This time, however, his antics aren’t costing his team 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct but rather landing the out-of-work wide receiver in jail for 30 days. Chad Johnson was in court Monday hoping to make a plea deal to avoid jail time in his probation […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

Just one week remains in the season. And while the AFC field is set (with the division winners’ seedings still to be determined), the NFC still has a bit to be determined. Just four spots have been claimed in the NFC, just two of those divisions. The NFC East race remains the most exciting scenario, […]

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 […]

BenJarvus Green-Ellis Signs With Bengals

Former Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis signed a three-year deal Wednesday with the Cincinnati Bengals. The financial details of the contract have yet to be released.

What Terrell Owens and Randy Moss Taught Chad Ochocinco

The oft-maligned and rarely used Chad Ochocinco told the Boston Herald Saturday that he’s often spoken with former Patriot Randy Moss and former Bengal Terrell Owens during this transition year to the Patriot way of life. The move seemingly makes sense: all three players are what Ochocinco called “diva receivers;” Moss is a former Patriot […]

Just over a month remains in the season, and plenty of teams are still fighting for position.

All of a sudden, San Francisco’s first round bye isn’t so […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 11

Coming up on Thanksgiving, the Lions will actually have a meaningful game. Both conferences are still in heated races for seeding, with the AFC turning upside down week by week.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

With just seven weeks to go, and several divisions are still very much up for grabs. For that matter, the whole AFC is on the line, with going from #1 to #6 in a week becoming rather likely lately. The Packers are still the team to beat, but with San Francisco, Pittsburgh and even Houston […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

The NFL season is entering its latter half, and the race is just as exciting as ever. Two divisions have a three-way tie for the lead, and another has the third team half a game back.
