    Andrew Sharp

    Earlier this week, we looked at a handful of last year's NFL playoff teams that could regress this year. But that's only half the fun. There are also the one or two teams waiting to break out with 10 or 11 wins and sneak into the playoffs. ...

  3. NFL Regression Party! Which Teams Will Disappoint Us This Year?

    Andrew Sharp

    One of my favorite traditions every year in football is regression season. It's those three or four weeks in August where everyone's quoting DVOA and adjusted win totals and point differential, all in the name of guessing which of last year...

  5. Tough Talk

    Brian Phillips

    The NFL is so popular, and plays such a charged role in American culture, that it has become a large paradox. The league is a mirror of society, reflecting our difficulties with race, class, sexual orientation, and gender. But the league is also an e...

  7. Making a Point About the PAT

    Jason Bailey

    Extracting some excitement from extra points seems like a challenge that would sideline even Rumpelstiltskin. But that hasn't stopped the NFL from trying its hand at some curious alchemy. For the first two weeks of the preseason, extra-point att...

  8. Don’t Dismiss Texas

    Bill Barnwell

    Something strange has happened in each of the last two NFL seasons. In both 2012 and 2013, the team that finished with the worst record in the NFL and received the first overall pick has responded by immediately making the playoffs the follo...

  9. The All–Bad Contracts Team

    Bill Barnwell

    After covering the league's most valuable contracts earlier this week, it's time to move on and pillory the worst deals in the NFL. Now, while it's easy to do this solely for the sake of ridicule, it's not my goal; I've found...

  10. Five NFL Training Camp Battles That Could Decide a Playoff Spot

    Robert Mays

    This is one of those dead stretches of the NFL calendar when player proclamations are somehow news. Most of it makes for "Well, what's he supposed to say?" reactions, but when Cordarrelle Patterson said yesterday&nbs...

    Robert Mays

    1. WOW. Seriously?! 2. OK, everybody slow down. Claims that sports fans are smarter today than ever before are mostly right. When NFL contracts are announced, not a single informed person pays attention to that big number at the fr...
