What Wild Card Weekend Tells us About the Divisional Round

Wild Card weekend was one for the ages. I went two for four with my picks. As for Nick… pray for this man (zero for four).

All jokes aside, this was one of the more unpredictable NFL weekends in quite awhile.

Which Boston Sports Team will be the First to win a Championship this Decade?

As most of you already know, Boston has been the hub of sports for the past two decades, winning 12 championships in the process. From the Patriots dynasty (still going), to the Red Sox randomness of great seasons, to the Bruins having two more shots at the Cup, and the Celtics still trying to get banner 18 for the first time since 2008, the city is certainly trying to add more. All four teams have a decent to really good chance at winning one or a few during this new decade, which begs the question, who’s most likely to hold a trophy first this decade?

I’ll be answering this by making a ranking from worst chance to best chance. Hope you’ll enjoy and let me know what you think of my list! Continue reading “Which Boston Sports Team will be the First to win a Championship this Decade?”

Let’s dive in, shall we? Continue reading “Week 11 Takeaways”

With Patrick Mahomes down, what does this mean for the rest of the AFC?

The Chiefs, even without Tyreek Hill for a bit, seemed to look as dominant as last season. But after two rough games in a row against the Colts and Texans, the Chiefs looked like their high powered offense was figured out. Teams finally know how to contain the offense.

Yesterday’s Thursday night game looked like a game the Chiefs needed; wrecking a bad team like the Broncos.

This was supposed to be an easy game for the then 4-2 Chiefs. But in a red zone situation up 10-6, the Chiefs went for a QB sneak and Mahomes dislocated his knee. Now, he’s out for three weeks. Continue reading “With Patrick Mahomes down, what does this mean for the rest of the AFC?”

Wade Phillips has been coaching in the NFL for a LONG time.  Phillips has been a defensive coordinator for 8 teams in the NFL (including Denver twice) since 1981, and has been coaching in the NFL since 1976.  The current Rams DC best accomplishment was being the defensive coordinator of the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos in 2015, who had one of the stingiest defenses in the history of the modern NFL.
