Which NFL teams will make the playoffs?

Twelve teams every year get to play in the NFL playoffs. Eight advance as division winners, while another four get in on the grace of the wildcard. On the other side there are probably about eight teams each year that we can count out of the playoff picture before the first game even gets played. This means nearly half of the legit playoff contenders will find themselves in the postseason tournament. Let's take a look at five teams to advance [...]

SBLIII – Do NFL Running Backs Matter?

Over the past few seasons, a very strange debate has broken out. Do NFL running backs matter in the grand scheme of the game? With Super Bowl LIII barreling down our throats on Sunday, February 3rd, it's a discussion worth having especially when you consider how much one team is paying for the services of their running game compared to their opponent. Yes, of course we're talking Todd Gurley here. Before we broach his impact on this subject, we should [...]

2019 NFL Pro Bowl Betting – The Super Bowl has a higher total

The NFL has made it a mission to turn the 2019 Pro Bowl betting matchup into something more than just a glorified, meaningless, celebration. They’ve sort of succeeded?

You want to know [...]

Finding a franchise quarterback is exceptionally tough and Wentz has all the tools (with a few caveats I'll get to in a bit). So instead, the discussion turns to the immediate future of Nick Foles. And let's be clear on this - the question is purely about whether or not [...]

Odds to win Super Bowl Llll – Saints Posting As Clear +225 Favorites

Three underdogs pulled outright upsets in the Wild Card round. That runs the against the spread record to 10-0 since last year's playoffs. The race to win the Vince Lombardi trophy looks wide open. As has been the case all year long, there's been no, true front runner, but the oddsmakers have pushed the New Orleans Saints to the top of the pile by a strong margin. They are nearly half the price of the Kansas City Chiefs, who are [...]
