Factoid: Greg Olsen

The Raiders have earned a much-deserved reputation struggling to cover tight ends, but Seattle is probably the 2nd-worst defense in that regard. That makes Greg Olsen -- probably Carolina's best healthy receiver anyway -- an intriguing option this week.   more »


Scheduletron: Remaining Strength of Schedule

For the past few weeks, I’ve taken a look at strength of schedule, basing it how I felt teams would finish in wins and losses. Now that teams have played four-five games each, this time around I’ll use not how I THINK they will play, but how they’ve actually performed thus far. And rather than using wins and losses, I’m going to use points allowed.   more »

Factoid: Dan Campbell

Miami is switching coaches. Joe Philbin is out, and Dan Campbell is in. But could this make any difference? Or is Miami just a bad team that needs to address its issues in the offseason?

Trivia: October 12, 2015

Earnest Jackson ran for 1,179 yards for San Diego in 1984, and he ran for 910 yards for Pittsburgh in 1986, falling just short of becoming the first player to run for over 1,000 yards with three different teams (he also did it with the Eagles). Who are the only two backs since Jackson who've gone on to do this -- over 1,000 with three different teams? answer »

Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

It's a very fine line between winning and losing in the NFL. Three overtime games, several others decided with touchdowns in the final minute. It's why people love (and hate) football, because it's exceeding difficult to accurately pick winners, losers and fantasy stars and busts. And that's not even getting into the injuries.   more »


Factoid: Broncos-Raiders

The Broncos are at Oakland today, and I will be interested to see how that goes. It’s been the league’s most one-sided rivalry recently, with Denver winning the last seven games by at least 13 points. The NFL has been around for a lot of years, and that kind of domination simply doesn’t happen often.  more »


Around the NFL: Watkins likely out, Thomas in

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Sammy Watkins will likely miss another game today. Somewhat surprisingly, Julius Thomas is expected to be active and good to go for today's game against Tampa Bay.  more »

The Steelers and Chargers have released their injury reports, and they’re about what you would expect. Most notably, the Chargers almost certainly will be without three important offensive starters.

Factoid: Kickers

Cairo Santos had the big game against the Bengals, knocking in 7 field goals – one short of the NFL record. But does this mean that we should now think of Santos as a top-5 kicker? Or is this simply a case of a pretty ordinary kicker lucking into a career day?  more »
