Why do I get certain emails, like this one, from certain emailers a couple days before Christmas? Because we’re a sports blog that covers things that ESPN won’t touch. It’s been that way since day one way back in 2007. However, this is a first.

The Indianapolis Colts don't want to let another chance to wrap up a playoff spot slip away.
Indy (9-5) can earn its first playoff berth of the post-Peyton Manning era with a win Sunday at Kansas City or a Steelers loss to Cincinnati. The Colts want to take care of business themselves after a sub-par performance at Houston.
The Colts are 8-3 since Bruce Arians took over as...

What do Kevin Kolb, Brandon Weeden, Charlie Batch, Nick Foles, and Ryan Lindley have in common? They are all signs that the apocalypse is coming. I kid, I kid. They have all sent me defeats in the 2012 NFL season. Just goes to show you that this game we call American Football is one wild and wacky creation. I have yet to start my Christmas shopping, so to avoid buying everyone...
Peyton Manning once ripped his ‘idiot kicker’ on national television and I don’t recall him apologizing to the Colts’ organization over it. He also ripped his offensive line a couple of times following tough losses and while he apologized to them privately, he did not do so publicly to them or his organization.
Broncos’ legend John Elway used to tear into his receivers...
Atlanta Falcons (12-2) Detroit Lions (4-10)
Normally I like going against huge line movements because I hate week to week overreactions. This line was Atlanta -1 last week and now it’s at -4.5, skipping over two key numbers of 3 and 4. At first glance, this appears warranted. The Lions got blown out by the crappy Cardinals in Arizona, losing 38-10, while the Falcons got a huge...
The NFL regular season is coming to a close and I wanted to post who I think deserves to win some the awards this year in the NFL. I would love to hear your thoughts and see who you think should take home some of the NFL trophies for the 2012 season.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Preparing to play Peyton Manning was challenging enough for the Cleveland Browns even before losing three more starters.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Friday that wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, tight end Jordan Cameron and defensive back Tashaun Gipson will not travel to Denver to play the Broncos (11-3).
With playoff hopes dashed and a losing season assured, the Browns...

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer The best spies in the NFL these days aren't behind enemy lines but on the quarterback's own side of the ball.
