The NFL has become a passing league. As fans, we are well aware of that. Records are going to be broken quite frequently with the emphasis on throwing the ball that has developed over the last several years. That being said, just because teams like to throw it doesn’t mean anyone should be able to [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
For most of the game the Giants had Aaron Rodgers right where they wanted him, shifting around the pocket, worried he might be hit and feeling vulnerable.
It doesn’t take a football genius to figure out the best way to keep the NFL’s best quarterback from playing like...
Mason Crosby kicked a 30-yard field goal as time expired and the Green Bay Packers kept their perfect season alive with a 38-35 victory over the host New York Giants on Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers threw for 369 yards and four touchdown passes as Green Bay clinched a playoff berth. The Packers will wrap up the NFC North title with a Detroit loss at New Orleans later Sunday night.
The New England Patriots were ready for the proverbial trap game and handled the hapless Colts with relative ease. Following their trend of starting slow, Tom Brady got hot once the Patriots could actually touch the ball. After the Patriots took a 3-0 lead, Indianapolis held the ball for 10:49, eating up the first quarter before kicking a field goal.
Brady and the offense took effect...
GREEN BAY, Wis. If the Giants are going to be the team to end the Packers' undefeated season on Sunday (3:15 p.m. on FOX), it will have to be with a much better performance than New York has shown the last three weeks.At the halfway point of this season, the Giants were looking like a serious contender, at 6-2, and were coming off a win in New England on Week 9. Then it all...
It seemed inevitable that if Texas and California kept showing up at the Holiday Bowl, they'd eventually play each other.
The Longhorns and Golden Bears will play in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28, the first matchup between the schools since 1970.
Texas will be playing in the Holiday Bowl for the fifth time while Cal is making its third visit. Both teams are 7-5.
Aaron Rodgers passed for 325 yards and four touchdowns as the Green Bay Packers remained undefeated (12-0) with a 38-35 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday.
Shutdown Corner looks at which records could fall over the final four games of the 2011 NFL season.
1. Will Dan Marino's 27-year record for passing yardage in a season be broken?
Contenders: Drew Brees (5,371), Tom Brady (5,221), Aaron Rodgers (5,125)
Three of the New Orleans Saints' final four games will be played in a dome, thus invalidating all the talk...
Green Bay Packers – 38, New York Giants – 35
Along with the Broncos-Vikings game, this was one of the most entertaining games of the week and certainly lived up to the fantasy expectations. Aaron Rodgers (401 total yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT) started out with a fairly slow first half, but turned it up in the second half...
The Giants came to play tonight. That is what the fans who witnessed this game will remember.
The Giants (6-6) went blow-for-blow with the league’s best team – the Green Bay Packers (12-0) – and lost on a FG as time expired, 38-35.
Outside of a victory, you couldn’t have asked for anything more. This was a great game. Giant fans have nothing to be disappointed about tonight...
The Giants responded to the challenge given to them by everyone infuriated by the way they played against the Saints on Monday night and showed buckets of fight against the Packers.
Unfortunately, fight alone isn't enough to beat a team as good as Green Bay is this season. The Giants were in the game until the final minutes, but they couldn't find a way to avoid a 38-35...
The Patriots are back on the right path as they have won three games in a row by a combined score of 109-39! The Colts played one of their better games of the year last weekend against the Panthers, but they still got beat 27-19 at home. Here is a look at the matchups in this likely bloodbath tomorrow in Foxboro:
When the Patriots have the ball: The Patriots are going to try...
