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 […]

NFL Power Rankings through Week 14

Fourteen weeks have come and gone, and there are six teams with 10 wins, four teams with eight wins, another six teams with seven wins, and one team that should just quit while it’s ahead. In other words, I hope you all have the tiebreaker rules straightened out. As always, I’ll take you on a tour through the […]

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 […]

NFL Power Rankings through Week 10

All is well in the world after the Patriots won Sunday night. My friend who happens to be a Jets fan might disagree (just a hunch based on the number of expletive-ridden texts he sent me over the course of the second half), but as far as I’m concerned, I have never had a more […]

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, […]

Video: Jim Schwartz, Jim Harbaugh Fight After Lions-49ers Game

Two of the top teams in the NFL, the Lions and 49ers, locked horns on Sunday, with San Francisco prevailing 25-19. As the final horn sounded, Niners coach Jim Harbaugh ran on the field pumping his fist and flailing his arms in celebration. As Harbaugh ran out to shake hands with Lions coach Jim Schwartz, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

With another week done in the NFL, and teams starting to have byes, many teams are still fighting to take control of their divisions and conferences. The Lions and Packers remain unbeaten, while the Rams, Colts and Dolphins remain winless. At this stage, only San Francisco has a multiple-game lead in their division; three other […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

We’re already through a quarter of the NFL season, and we’ve already seen a lot of surprises. Some people though Detroit would be good, but I don’t think anyone thought they’d be 4-0 good. Buffalo finally knocked off New England. Philadelphia has been quite lackluster. Tampa’s holding their own in the ultra competitive NFC South. […]
