Factoid: Russell Wilson

It's been a rough start for Russell Wilson and the Broncos. The opening Monday night loss at Seattle was a comedy of errors, and last week's 16-9 win over Houston was only marginally better. Denver has another primetime showcase this week, against a much better opponent (San Francisco).   more »

Team projections: Updated team projections

The Bills are heading into a difficult stretch of their schedule right now. Three of their next four are on the road at Miami, Baltimore and Kansas City. Their next two home games are against Pittsburgh and Green Bay (Pittsburgh, recall, gave them fits last year). But they’ve sure got it going right now, looking like by far the best offense in the league.   more »

Around the NFL: Jordan Mason time?

It took almost no time at all for Elijah Mitchell to get hurt, and now we hear that third-round rookie Tyrion Davis-Price has a high ankle sprain. Another year, another war of attrition in the San Francisco backfield, which will perhaps give Jordan Mason a shot.   more »


Viva Murillo!: No deal = great deal

The 49ers wanted to move Jimmy Garoppolo all offseason, but they couldn't find a serious buyer. So they had to keep him, albeit grudgingly. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins were considered front-runners for Deshaun Watson at one point, and were even linked to Tom Brady in the offseason. The end result was no Watson, no Brady and they even lost 1st and 3rd-round picks in 2024 for tampering with Brady. Headed into week 1, both teams looked like they would suffer for not getting a deal done. Now, two weeks later, they look like the best deals they never made. It happens in the NFL, and in your league, too.   more »

Which state has produced the most current NFL players per capita? Not looking at where they played their college ball but instead where they originally came from (tabulated by the league using locations of high schools). answer »


Factoid: Seattle Seahawks

Geno Smith is completing lots of passes -- 80-plus percent in both games. But they’re not really going anywhere. He’s finished under 200 passing yards in both games, and Seattle’s offense hasn’t scored a point in its last six quarters.   more »


Andy Richardson: A Day of Football

So I'm in this Survivor Pool, and man the carnage in this thing through two weeks is something else. There's been an inordinate number of wild finishes and upsets in games that were seemingly over. Some crazy big (Ravens-Dolphins) and crazy quiet (Bucs-Saints) fantasy outings, too.   more »


Trivia: September 19, 2022

Who’s the only running back in league history who’s scored 10 touchdowns in a season with three different teams? answer »


Factoid: Indianapolis Colts

Two games in, Matt Ryan isn’t looking like much of an upgrade over Carson Wentz – or anybody else the Colts have trotted out at quarterback in recent years. Expectations that Indianapolis was almost a prohibitive favorite to win the AFC South are looking pretty silly nowadays.   more »
