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 […]

Patriots Will Host Ravens in AFC Championship Game

The New England Patriots’ next opponent has stepped forward. The Baltimore Ravens will head to Gillette Stadium for the AFC Championship Game after defeating the Houston Texans today, 20-13. The Ravens had a 12-4 record in the regular season, good enough for the #2 seed in the AFC playoffs and a first round bye. Baltimore […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

Just one more week left, and the playoffs will be finalized. New England survived a scare to maintain the top spot, while the AFC West and NFC East will be decided in the final week. The AFC North is still up for grabs; Baltimore is currently in line for a home playoff game for a […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

There’s just two weeks left in the season, but five playoff spots remain un-clinched. The NFC Wildcard race is pretty much locked up, but the AFC race is as heated as ever. New England and Kansas City took advantage of their competition losing to improve their standing. Ditto for Dallas, who reclaimed the division lead […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three games left and the playoffs can get underway. The Texans and Broncos continue to roll. San Francisco is slipping away from a bye. And the Cowboys suddenly aren’t looking their best. Indy’s magic number to clinch Andrew Luck is down to two, so that should be interesting to see what happens with Peyton […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

It’s just a month until the playoffs start, and the tension isn’t letting up. Houston is still winning despite being down to their third quarterback. New England is still having trouble playing 60 minutes. Even Green Bay is winning close games now. Both wildcard races are still very heated. And let’s not forget that it’s […]

NFL Power Rankings through Week 12

Back-ups-turned-starting-quarterbacks simply sucked; God continued to mess with conventional football wisdom (and common sense) despite the end of the NBA lockout; and Stevie Johnson made my wildest dreams come true (okay, second-wildest). Just another week in the NFL. With Thanksgiving come and gone like so many unlucky (yet incredibly delicious) turkeys, some teams have more […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 12

Just over a month remains in the season, and plenty of teams are still fighting for position. The Colts are definitely getting Andrew Luck, but the wild cards and many divisions (as well as most of the byes) are still very much within reach. 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. The Packers and 49ers are still the best of the best, but other teams are on the rise, too. Much has been made lately of […]

Matt Schaub Joins List of Those Injured in Houston

The injury bug is spreading like an actual disease in Houston and quarterback Matt Schaub is the latest victim. The remainder of Schaub’s season is in serious jeopardy after he suffered a Lisfranc joint injury in his right foot, according to the Associated Press. Schaub injured his foot on a quarterback sneak. The injury to […]

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. Both conferences have a division with three teams currently in the playoff bracket; a division has only finished that […]
