    Robert Mays

    After yesterday, I have all the proof I need. I don't know what it is about this year, but I'm now convinced that more teams than ever just have no interest in going to the playoffs. The Bengals held off the Browns, but they needed two defensive scor...

    Dermot Hunt

    The Titans are trailing by 25 points, deep in the third quarter, when they score a touchdown. The extra point is converted, the onside kick is well-executed, and the opposing team flubs the catch. Players fling themselves at the loose ball from all d...
