Week 16 Viewer's Guide: What to watch in Ravens-Steelers; mailbag
This rivalry game has great meaning as always. Only this year, it isn't for the AFC North crown, but rather for the right to stay alive in the crowded AFC wild card picture. The Ravens were dealt a fairly significant blow when rookie corner and return man
The good news for Baltimore is that it appears to be back in a groove on both sides of the ball after a rocky middle of the season which saw it lose most of the winnable games in which it played. Offensively,
The question of the day obviously in this game that I will be calling for Sports USA Radio is exactly who is and who isn't playing for the 14-0 Colts. And perhaps more importantly, for how long? The answers to those questions will go a long way in determining the outcome in this one, although even if the Colts are at full strength, it won't be easy for them to stay undefeated against a Jets squad that has the running game and defense necessary to give them a run for their money.
The problem for the Jets is that, unlike the Colts, they seemingly find new and unique ways to lose games. Last weekend against Atlanta was no different. But Sunday is a new day, and you have to think that
This should be interesting. The Cowboys really couldn't have played much better than they did in invading the Superdome last Saturday in knocking off the previously unbeaten Saints. The Redskins, on the other hand, couldn't have played much worse against the New York Giants, as they were thoroughly dominated in every phase of the game on Monday night. All of which probably means the Redskins will find a way to beat the Cowboys given the way this zany league works.
It will be interesting to see the intensity level that the Cowboys display on Sunday night. Do they let their foot off the gas a bit now that the can't-win-in-December monkey is off their backs? Or do they have a renewed confidence that allows them to continue to roll? The Skins really can't play much worse and they had better find a way to protect
This is the perfect time slot for a game between two teams that come into the game with boatloads of drama. For the Vikings, it will be interesting to see whether their
For the Bears, change is on the horizon in some way, shape or form. That much we know for sure. What that change ends up being is right now anybody's guess. One thing that absolutely needs to change is quarterback
After a one-week hiatus due to a wicked stomach virus, here are some quick-hit responses to some of your questions, all sent via Twitter.
Not much. In fact, Colts starting guard
Well, it won't be easy considering the NFC is absolutely stacked. In fact, I think any and every NFC team that makes the playoffs has the goods to go on a Super Bowl run. It won't be easy for the Cowboys to win in Arizona, Philly or, potentially, even Minnesota. But if they can win in New Orleans, they can absolutely get it done in any of those other venues.
I know plenty of Giants fans that adore Eli and defend him against all comers, so I don't agree with your basic premise that he gets no respect. That said, Eli still has plenty of detractors and my sense is that most of it comes from the expectations that come along with both being the No. 1 overall pick and his record-setting contract.
The answer is pretty much everything since Kansas City still has holes all across the board. But given that Browns running back
