Monday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Dioni Tabers: Conference Championships Set in NFL

Monday January 16th, 2017

NFL Round-Up

Sunday was heaven for football fans. Pittsburgh and Green Bay just squeezed past Kansas City and Dallas, respectively. Here's what you missed: Mike Tomlin called the Patriots a bunch of a**holes in a postgame speech that wasn't supposed to be recorded ... Steelers and Chiefs players had to be separated from each other after the game ...  Travis Kelce had some choice (and funny) words about the refs ... Andy Reid still needs help with clock management ... There's no way Chris Conley didn't have a concussion after this hit ... Aaron Rodgers drew up the game-winning play in the huddle ... Mason Crosby's game-winning field goal was thisclose to hooking left ... An angry Cowboys fan punched and destroyed his giant TV ... Some Dallas and Green Bay fans were stuck in the stadium after the game because of tornado warnings.

R.I.P. Superfly Snuka

WWE legend Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka passed away on Sunday at 73. Snuka leaves a complicated legacy and is far from a hero. But he did provide one of the most famous moments in wrestling history and was the first WrestleMania opponent of The Undertaker. Wrestlers old and new mourned his death on Twitter.

Punters Gonna Punt

We've discussed the NFL's most exciting punter, Marquette King, in this space before and I didn't think he'd come up again until next season. Then he went to the grocery store.
