With Andrew Luck’s sudden and shocking retirement last weekend, the odds to win the NFL MVP award reflect an unquestioned fact of life in the league: it’s Patrick Mahomes’ world and we’re just living in it.

What we learned from Week 1 of the NFL preseason

The first week of the NFL preseason was far from a crystal ball into the future of the 2019 season, but it still left plenty to evaluate. From rookie quarterback play to offensive firepower and one exciting touchdown return, here are five key takeaways from Week 1 of the preseason.

NFL: Which quarterback will throw for the most yards in 2019?

When trying to determine which quarterback is going to have the most passing yards in the 2019 NFL season, there are so many variables to consider that it can make your head spin. Rather than narrow down to a single selection, let's consider which 10 quarterbacks deserve most consideration for this prop wager. Patrick Mahomes +400 Mahomes came in second last year in passing yardage and was also second in yards per attempt. He presumably will only get better, as [...]

Who will be the 2019 NFL MVP?

Winning a Most Valuable Player award is the most significant individual résumé builder any athlete can hope to achieve. The award will never go to a player on a losing team in the NFL.

Although he's only won two MVP awards, Aaron Rodgers [...]

History suggests that relying on dogs to get the job done in the divisional round both outright or against the number can be a dangerous endeavor, but I think this season is unique. In years’ past, the majority of top seeds come into the playoffs playing their best ball, but I [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 15 Thursday Night Analysis- Chargers at Chiefs

A big one in the AFC West between two of the league’s best teams starts the antepenultimate week of action in the National Football League. The Los Angeles Chargers enter Week 15 with an 11-2 record, but will need things to go their way over the last three weeks to avoid a road game to start the playoffs. Los Angeles has won three in a row and 9 of 10 after losing 2 of 3 to start the season. Their [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 10 NFL 4-Pack

It was nice to win an easy one on Thursday night as the Steelers offense was way too much for Carolina to handle in a 52-21 rout at Heinz Field. Hopefully, I can keep things rolling on Sunday. Here is my Week 10 NFL 4-Pack! Dallas Cowboys (+7.0) at Philadelphia Eagles The NFC East has not been one of the stronger divisions in the NFL over the first-half of the season which has left the door wide-open for the defending [...]
