Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

There is no one right answer for starting or not starting players returning from or dealing with injury. If you started, say, Kyler Murray yesterday, you got huge numbers even with him not doing much through the air. If you started hurt/sick guys who were active, like Darrell Henderson or Boston Scott, you got burned. Hopefully you erred on the side of caution with most -- worked better, overall, than the alternative.   more »

Trivia: December 6, 2021

The Patriots and Bills play tonight. Antowain Smith formerly had seasons with over 1,000 rushing yards for both of these teams. Two teams in the same division sharing a 1,000-yard rusher. New England also did this with Curtis Martin (Jets), but there’s no player who ran for over 1,000 yards for both the Patriots and Dolphins. In this vein, what is the only current team that has the complete set? That is, looking for a team that has had three 1,000-yard running backs who also ran for over 1,000 yards for each of the three other teams that are currently in its own division? answer »

Around the NFL: Minshew Mania

Jalen Hurts isn’t active. Eagles instead will start Gardner Minshew, and that changes that entire offense. With Philadelphia playing against a Jets defense that’s allowing a league-high 30.4 points per game, this is noteworthy.  more »

Around the NFL: Sunday morning injury updates

Andy Richardson: Thursday Night Recap

When the dust had settled, we were left with a one-sided Cowboys win that didn't deliver nearly as much as it could have.   more »

The two involved teams will meet again on Sunday. answer »
