  1. Bad Quarterback League, Week 6: When Las Vegas Ruined Peyton Mann...

    Andrew Sharp

    A good rule of thumb for gambling is that anytime Vegas sets a "record" point spread, you should take the underdog. No matter how great one team is and how horrible the other is, the laws of the universe almost always keep it close somehow. That's wh...

  3. Sarah Silverman Comes Home to ‘SNL’

    Amos Barshad

    Last week's SNL premiere had all the baked-in drama one would expect from an offseason of upheaval, mixed up with the inherent giddiness of the first day of school. It also had some great bits, and at least one standout performance from a d...

    Charles P. Pierce

    I walked to the game, because that is how you get to an important game in Pittsburgh. You walk over one of the great yellow bridges and get swallowed up by the joy that has preceded you. The traditionalists may scoff, but these win-or-go-home, one-ga...

    Shea Serrano

    The Equalizer opens in theaters Friday. That is exciting because Denzel Washington is in it, and every Denzel Washington movie is great, even the ones that stink, and sometimes especially the ones that stink. But it's maybe a little more...

    Andy Greenwald

    At the movies, romance is easy: a meet-cute, some sweet misunderstandings, a big gesture, and an even bigger kiss. Roll credits, and everyone, including the audience, lives happily ever after. But on TV, as in life, romance tends to be a bit more...

    Robert Mays

    Even great pass-rushers disappear for stretches. Double-digit sack totals are the mark of a respectable year, but even someone with those numbers might go half a season of games without one. The best edge players are the ones who are a constant probl...

  13. How to Pick Your Draft-Day Hero

    Kevin Lincoln

    As a form of entertainment, the NFL draft is almost perfectly designed to be uninteresting. If you're a fan in the biblical sense - monogamous, one team - you get that great thrill of the first-round pick. Past that, it&...

    Prince, his new band and his old band, and a great many dancers stormed The Arsenio Hall Show on Wednesday night. The Purple One chatted with Arsenio and the crowd, but that was beside the point: the performances, man. The damn songs. I've got a...
