Factoid: Patriots Defense

So the Bills beat the living snot out of the Patriots yesterday, and a major takeaway was the total ineffectiveness of New England's defense. It didn't sack Josh Allen, and it didn't record any takeaways. Outside of Buffalo, few saw such a dominant performance from their offense coming. But more probably should have.   more »

Factoid: Laquon Treadwell

The season was a disaster for the Jaguars – 3-14, and with the bizarreness of the failed Urban Meyer experiment. But there are always small individual victories along the way, and Laquon Treadwell is looking like one of them. He’s looking like he might salvage his once-promising career.  more »

It will be frigid in Orchard Park tomorrow. Single digits. The expected day-time high is 10 degrees, and this is an evening kickoff. What kind of effect (if any) will this have on the offenses of the Bills and Patriots?   more »


Factoid: Najee Harris

I'm a Najee Harris fan, and at times when I talked him up here it was commented that he was overrated. It's true that holes can be poked in his rookie season; perhaps he's not as good as I think he is. Perhaps.   more »


Trivia: January 14, 2022

The Bucs play Philadelphia on Sunday, and it’s a rematch of the first playoff game in that franchise’s history. In December, 1979, Tampa Bay beat Philadelphia 24-17.

Prior to Williams, who was the only African American quarterback who had started a playoff game? answer »
