Patriots Fall to Eagles in Second Preseason Game

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 […]

New England Patriots Report Card: Week 12

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 16

Just one week left in the season! Nine of the 12 teams have punched their ticket so far, and as long as the Rams lose or tie in Week 17, a losing team will make the playoffs. The AFC’s road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxboro, and unless the Falcons lose at home to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

Just two weeks to go until the playoffs are completely set. And after a concussion, Brett Favre won’t be there to see them. Both the Patriots and the Falcons have a magic number of one to clinch the #1 seeds in their conferences. And at 6-8, one of the Rams or Seahawks have to win […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

The Colts are on the outside looking in, but they do have a home game against Jacksonville […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

With less than two months to go now, the landscape has changed pretty nicely. The Patriots went from contenders to jokes, to contenders again with a defeat of Pittsburgh. Oakland is now in the playoff situation again, somehow. The Cowboys’ coaching change helped them, and hurt the Giants. The Falcons and Jets are back in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

Things have suddenly gotten interesting. The Patriots are no longer the best team around, and the Rams are doing something right. And remember the Saints’ poor start? They’re now half a game out of the best record in the league. Ditto for the packers, and just one game back for the Colts. And three games […]
