Houston Texans Cause of Death: Brian Hoyer’s ability; Bill O’Brien’s stubbornness.

Which NFL team has the best chance of pulling a divisional round upset?

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs presents an interesting dynamic. The four teams that won on wild-card weekend all come in with momentum and people jump on their bandwagon. All four of those teams are on the road against either a No. 1 or No. 2 seed, but their chances of pulling an upset often are magnified because their opponent has had a bye week and is out-of-sight...

Five NFL players who could use a fresh start

Now that the NFL regular season has concluded, some players have unfortunately played their final game with their current team. The 2015 campaign saw former first-round draft picks embarrassingly alienated. Even worse, some top picks were stripped of their starting duties altogether.

Wild Card Weekend by the numbers

Something strange happened during Wild Card Weekend beyond just Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones losing his mind, and Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh missing a gimmie putt that will haunt him until the end of his time on Earth.

But Hoyer was a disaster yesterday with four picks and five turnovers. The media was not...
