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?

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 [...]

Can Detroit rise up in a division duel and [...]

NFL Week 16  Free Picks – A Truly Difficult Sunday of Handicapping

Nick Foles took Carson Wentz’s place under center for the Philadelphia Eagles and promptly led the defending champs to a big upset win over the Los Angeles Rams in what would be a shocker if we hadn't also seen this same backup quarterback become a Super Bowl MVP. Foles must continue his late season heroics when the Eagles host AFC South winner Houston on Sunday. If the season ended today, the Texans would be the second seed in the AFC, [...]
