Tebow Leads Broncos Past Steelers, Patriots Up Next

Tim Tebow was horrible over the final three games of the season as Denver went 0-3 to finish with an 8-8 record that was barely good enough to win the AFC West. This led many to predict that Sunday’s start against the Steelers might be Tebow’s final start in the NFL. Some reports even had the Broncos […]

2012 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Wildcard Round Results

The first round is now complete, and it was filled with surprises. Denver pulled off the improbable win against Pittsburgh, Cincinnati bit the dust and Atlanta still hasn’t won a playoff game in the Matt Ryan era, this time managing just a measly safety. That threw a monkey wrench into the plans of some of […]

2012 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Wildcard Round

It’s playoff time in the NFL, and it’ll all start out with the first ever playoff meeting between rookie quarterbacks, when Andy Dalton leads the Bengals against T.J.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

The season’s about half-way over, and we’ve got a few serious contenders, a few who are losing for Luck, and a good portion still fighting within their division for position. This past week has given us a new AFC leader, confirmed enthusiasm for San Francisco and given us a reason to be bearish about New […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Seven weeks into the season, some of the ties are just starting to break up. Others remain, but every division has a definitive leader, if only half a game. Cincinnati has come roaring back, while Detroit is on a losing streak all of a sudden. New Orleans is back on top of the NFC South, […]
