Five players leading the MVP race

1) Peyton Manning: Manning is looking for his fifth MVP award this season, and he's off to a great start once again, despite Denver's struggles to keep pace with top-tier teams in the league.

Peyton Manning's Broncos on Verge of Becoming Legitimate Contenders in Wide Open AFC (Podcast)

It seems like just yesterday Patriots fans were looking at the schedule wondering where exactly the team's blemishes would come from. But now, with six weeks of football in the books, some panic is starting to settle in. Talks of 16-0 are long gone, and losses to Baltimore, Arizona and Seattle have Patriots fans searching for answers. New England's secondary...

John Elway Was Right: Peyton Manning Is Back

It's a passing league - no secret to anyone. But the Broncos may have been onto something last year.  While teams shift to passing offenses, the Broncos could have doubled down on being a power run team and been competitive.  Defenses are being built to stop passing attacks, not the University of Nebraska rushing attack of the 80s. While I think some team will eventually...

WFNY Podcast – 2012-10-20 – Talking Colts with a Colts fan

When you write sports at a website like WFNY for a while you get to know your own kinds of fans. As many of you know my house is divided from a football perspective because my wife grew up in Indianapolis. I spared you my wife being on the podcast, but my brother-in-law is very much a similar kind of football fan to what I think we cater to at WFNY, so I talked to him for about ten...

A.B. Growing up as a sports fan in America, I find it impossible not to gamble on games. And while I wouldn’t bet an NHL or MLB game to save my life, something about betting on the NFL just soothes the soul. Watching Thursday night football without money on the line doesn’t interest me, unless the Patriots are playing. But put $50 on the over of a game between the Browns &...

Around the NFL: Week 7

In this unpredictably wild season, nothing is certain. Craziness has become the theme of 2012, and week six exemplified that. Up 24-0 at home, Norv Turner and the San Diego Chargers had the Monday Night game in the bag.  That was until Peyton Manning and the Broncos stormed back to make history, becoming the first team to be down 24 points and still win by double digits.
