Factoid: Two-point conversions

During the season, I checked in a couple of times on how teams were doing on 2-point conversions. You may recall in the preseason some big talk from a player or two on the Steelers, Packers and Saints about how they might go for 2 after touchdowns more often.  more »

Fantasy Index Weekly: New England Patriots

New England’s offense probably will score 3-4 TDs, and just 3 TDs looks more likely. Pittsburgh’s defense has been playing pretty well. It’s allowed only 19 TDs in its last 10 meaningful game. Only two opponents in there scored more than 2 TDs (the Cowboys, and at Buffalo). The Patriots have a great offense, of course, but they’re going without Rob Gronkowski, who’s caused major problems for the Steelers in the past (including two games with 3 TD catches).   more »

Fantasy News: Fantasy Index Open

The Packers have hit on a Hail Mary and a “Half Mary” the last two weeks of the playoffs. That’s impossible to top, but the latest winner in the Fantasy Index Open is at least a working pastor. The Reverend Richard Loppnow is affiliated with the Our Savior Lutheran Church in Ephrata, Wash.  more »

Andy Richardson: A Weekend of Football

So I didn't call every game right, but in picking the Falcons and Steelers, and theorizing that Dallas would fall behind and not run the ball enough, I was close. Just like the Cowboys. At the end of the weekend we do at least have two very compelling championship game matchups -- perhaps the best we could have hoped for just eight days ago. First the recaps.   more »

Around the NFL: NFL playoffs

Patriots didn’t have too much trouble with Houston, which wasn’t a surprise. They beat them 27-0 in the regular season, and the playoff game was only nominally more competitive. The Texans played better and got three turnovers, causing the game to extend into the fourth quarter.  more »

Around the NFL: Devin Hester

Devin Hester had an eye-opening performance against Atlanta yesterday. Signed just a few weeks back after being cut by multiple teams (his mishandled punt was a factor in Baltimore's loss to Pittsburgh in Week 16), he seemed to be all done. But he had multiple long returns against the Falcons, including a near touchdown and a long one wiped out by a penalty (which turned out to be kind of a game-changer).   more »

Factoid: Los Angeles Rams

The Rams hired Sean McVay on Thursday, making him the youngest head coach ever – he’s only 30. He’ll be the league’s first 31-year-old head coach when the Rams open the season in September. Only five other teams have hired 32-year-old head coaches in the Super Bowl era.  more »

24 Hours 'Til Sunday: Snapshot previews of all the games

Just four games again, and three of them should be pretty good. I'll spend the least time on the game in New England, sorry Texans, but will try to figure out what's going to happen in the other three, who to start, who to sit, and who to use in various playoff competitions. Let's go.   more »
