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 […]

NFL Tidbits: Colts, AFC Playoffs and More.

NFL NEWS AND NOTES: These are a couple tidbits for the New England and NFL fan. With the NFL season winding down, records are being broken and playoff spots are being earned. Here’s a look at what’s cooking around the league. THANK YOU JETS: Why would diehard Patriot fans be thankful toward the New York […]

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 […]

Be a Titans Fan For a Day!

Let’s be frank.  The New England Patriots had their chance to stop the Colts from making a run at its record 21 straight regular season wins.  They blew it.  Since then, The Colts struggled against the Ravens and, thanks to Ed Reed’s stupidity, squeaked away with a win.  Then they appeared to be getting blown […]

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 […]

Pats See Perfection More Often Than Not

Has any team faced a tougher schedule then the New England Patriots this season? Consider this, the Patriots opened the season playing five undefeated teams in five straight games. Holy Schnikes! Then after playing two winless teams, they finally played a team without a zero in its record. One week later, they met the 8-0 […]

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 […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots vs. Colts, Week 10

You probably didn’t think fumbles could happen from the sidelines, did ya? Well Sunday night in Indianapolis, that’s exactly what happened. Coach Bill Belichick, the infallible one himself, figuratively fumbled the game away, opting to go for the first down on 4th-and-2, at their own 28 yard line. And just like that, a great effort […]

Rebutting “Conventional Wisdom”

By Charlie This is in response to John, who thinks that going for it on 4th and 2 is too risky, and in accordance with George, who praised Bill Belichick for the move. The math has been done on Belichick’s already-infamous decision to go for it on 4th down on Sunday night. But, there are […]

4th and Too Much to Risk

George disagrees with John, and thinks we should be praising Bill Belichick. Charlie challenges John’s claim that Belichick’s call was “risky.” Coach Belichick fancies himself a powerful wizard when it comes to making gutsy but logical play calls, but on Sunday, the wizard didn’t find himself taken seriously. 4th and 2, up by six, 2:08 […]

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 […]

Patriots Give Colts Early Christmas Present

The title says it all; with the game in hand, the Patriots gave it away to their arch rival Colts, who took the game 35-34 in the closing seconds. It started out punch for punch, with the Colts getting the ball to start, and each team going three and out. The Colts struck first with […]
