Home playoff game assured, but still much at stake for Falcons

Elite Kids Matt Barkley Jersey Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn was careful not to mention the playoffs over the past few weeks, sticking by his one-game-at-a-time approach whenever inquiries tried to spin ahead. Well, Quinn can talk freely about the postseason now after his team secured the NFC South title. The 10-5 Falcons, currently the […]

Cousins carved up the Buffalo Bills last week with four touchdowns and 319 yards on 22-of-28 passing

Youth Harry Carson Jersey Washington has been far from perfect in 2015, but it’s done enough to be at .500, which is way more than people expected after a chaotic preseason that saw Robert Griffin III disappear in favor of Kirk Cousins. Youth Cortez Kennedy Jersey Cousins, for his part, has looked above average this […]

There was a reason Buchholz stuck around in Boston through the no-hitter in his second career start in 200

Elite Womens Patrick Marleau Jersey Terrific. Owner John Henry must be so relieved. But remind us again when, exactly, the Red Sox began prioritizing fiscal conservatism over pitching depth? Look, Buchholz is hardly irreplaceable. He went 8-10 with a 4.78 ERA in 2016. He got booted to the bullpen in May, went 19 days without […]

Cam Newton will start; Luke Kuechly on track with concussion recovery

Game Kids Tuomo Ruutu Jersey Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will start Monday night at Washington despite being listed as questionable on Saturday¡¯s final injury report. The reigning NFL MVP was limited in practice Wednesday through Friday with soreness in his shoulder but practiced in full Saturday. Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly also was listed as […]

Hackett only tried to put in a couple of Star Wars plays with the Jaguars

Game Youth Shane Doan Jersey “I was talking to my father, and I was telling him, ‘Do you realize all the things you created just with a football?’” Serrano said of a recent conversation. “That’s the beautiful and the strange part of everything, right?” Just like that, the Browns were his team. By the time […]

Charles Woodson was one of the most influential people in my life

My father states his opinions like facts. When he told me about Charles Woodson, he didn’t say that Woodson was a player he liked, but a GREAT player — full stop. He threw Limited Kids Robert Alford Jersey his full weight into the word GREAT, too, and he didn’t hedge by saying Woodson was GOING […]

Plenty of holiday shopping left to do after winter meetings

Game Womens Terron Armstead Jersey Sometimes the biggest story of the winter meetings isn’t what happened. It’s what didn’t happen. What almost happened. What’s about to happen. So let’s take a look at some of the fascinating winter meetings plotlines that are still dangling — because the clear message conveyed by the executives who were […]

The Browns’ doctors surely would have made him sit out for a while

The poor backup went down the line to see whether anyone else wanted to be spelled before sadly heading back to the sideline. “Why didn’t you come out?” Pettine asked Thomas when the offense came off the field. “I haven’t missed a snap, and I’m not coming out when we’re finally winning a game,” Thomas […]

Raiders have Jack Del Rio to thank for instilling winning culture

It was a four-year plan that, when it was instituted back in 2012, really had nothing to do with Jack Del Rio. Maybe that’s why it seems like the Oakland Raiders are a year ahead of schedule. The way owner Mark Davis and general manager Reggie McKenzie plotted things out, the first two years in […]

Kansas City’s biggest weapon may be quarterback Alex Smith’s ability to protect the football

Manning experienced similar success with McAdoo. He’s thrown 65 touches with a 92.9 QB rating over the last two seasons. The Giants rank fourth in touchdown passes and ninth in points per game since 2014. Though the Giants’ offense has flourished over the last two years, the team hasn’t. New York posted its second consecutive […]
