Viva Murillo!: Quitters Sometimes Win

Losing any game is tough. But some circumstances make it hurt a little more. A touchdown vulture denying your starter. A Hail Mary that connects, giving your opponent the win.

I thought of those days while watching Kansas City-New England last night, and each week where multiple teams are scoring 180-200 points in my fantasy leagues. It's an interesting (alarming? absurd?) time in the NFL.   more »

Dynasty Leagues: Mahomes tops quarterbacks

In dynasty leagues, decision making is particularly difficult at the quarterbacking position.

What are the only other three pairs of teams that during the Super Bowl era have both played against each other in a Super Bowl and spent time in the same division? (Note: in 1966, the NFL divided teams into 8- and 7-team groups, but they were conferences rather than divisions.) answer »
