  1. Week 16 Wrap-up: The Percentage Game

    Bill Barnwell

    That was fun, huh? Week 16 delivered a full slate of entertaining games, including a pair of Saturday games that were wildly compelling for totally different reasons before a Sunday with a bevy of statement wins and losses. We're now down to 16 ...

  2. Week 15 Wrap-up: King of the Road

    Bill Barnwell

    The Cowboys won the game they weren't supposed to win. It would have fit so many of the simple check boxes we assign to the team for Dallas to blow that 21-0 lead last night and lose in Philadelphia. Big game? In December? Against an NFC East ri...

  3. Mining for Gold: Searching for the Next NFL Head Coaches

    Bill Barnwell

    While the Jets exhibited no lack of effort Monday night against the Dolphins, the 16-13 loss was surely one of the last games for Rex Ryan as New York's head coach. Gang Green will be one of several teams in search of a new coach this offse...

  4. Week 13 Wrap-up: A February Preview?

    Bill Barnwell

    If Sunday's game between the Packers and the Patriots was actually a preview of the Super Bowl, we've got a very exciting game on tap in February. Green Bay's 26-21 victory over New England was a rare bird, a game in which the Packers ...

    Bill Barnwell

    The byes are finally over. Every NFL team has played 11 games, leaving five contests per team to go. That's 80 more NFL games over the next five weeks, likely ending with a Detroit-Green Bay game deciding the NFC North in Week 17. While th...

  6. Week 8 NFL Wrap-up: Ministers of Defense

    Bill Barnwell

    Sunday started with a game that felt like it was both played and watched (on television) by hungover Americans who would have rather been sleeping. The Falcons and Lions contrived to deliver a product that more closely resembled the World Le...

  7. NFL Week 7 Picks: It Can Only Go Up From Here

    Bill Barnwell

    Week 7 can't be worse than Week 6. Well, it would be very difficult to be worse than Week 6. I was victimized by two of the week's three pick-sixes in the final seconds of games that turned a winning side into a loser (while also pushing th...

  8. NFL Week 6 Picks: Question Everything

    Bill Barnwell

    I have to admit I was tempted to just make this entire Week 6 preview out of J.J. Watt GIFs from Thursday night's Texans-Colts game and call it a column. I know that he's not better at quarterback than Ryan Fitzpatrick, if only because Fitz...

  9. Week 4 Picks and Preview: It’s the Coaching, Stupid

    Bill Barnwell

    You know a good NFL quarterback when you see one, right? Sure, it might take a few hundred passes and a playoff game or two to really get a grip on how good a passer looks, but watch a guy for a few games and you shouldn't find it too difficult ...

  10. NFL Week 3 Wrap: Stand and Deliver

    Bill Barnwell

    Selfishly, I wish that Broncos-Seahawks game had been what we saw in last year's Super Bowl. Can you imagine? Peyton Manning intercepted while driving his team down for a game-winning score, only to launch an improbable 80-yard, no-timeout drive...

  11. Darren Sproles Is the NFL’s Extra Value Meal

    Bill Barnwell

    Through two games, the league's most influential player might very well be an afterthought who was acquired during the offseason for a fifth-round pick. No, Darren Sproles won't actually win league MVP when things are all said and done. He&...

  12. NFL Week 2 Wrap: A Tale of Two Cities

    Bill Barnwell

    Week 2 showed why you shouldn't jump to conclusions after one week of football. Five teams won by 15 points or more in Week 1, and on Sunday, four of them -- the Vikings, Lions, Seahawks, and Titans -- lost their second game by an average of mor...

    Bill Barnwell

    On Monday, the returns on two new offenses came in with drastically different results. As you can probably tell from the 35-14 final score, the revamped Detroit Lions came through with flying colors. Eli Manning and the New York Giants? Whatever the...

  14. Unleash the Franchise

    Bill Barnwell

    It's not easy out there for Andrew Luck. His team relies on him to pull out close games in the fourth quarter. To show their appreciation, the Colts allow teams to knock Luck to the ground far more frequently than any other quarterback in footba...

  15. Re-caging the Panthers

    Bill Barnwell

    The Carolina Panthers were the feel-good story of the 2013 NFL season. After years of rebuilding and losing agonizingly close games, everything suddenly clicked into place during an eight-game midseason winning streak, one that saw them beat...

  16. Figuring Out the Falcons

    Bill Barnwell

    It was like clockwork. The Atlanta Falcons (Matt Ryan and Mike Smith edition) posted a winning record by virtue of dominating their opposition in close games. For their first five seasons together, the only knock you could throw at Atlanta's sta...
