New York Jets need to run well vs. Lions to have a chance

The New York Jets could very well be 3-0 right now after an ill-advised timeout against Green Bay ended their hopes of winning that game, while a turnover fest vs. Chicago cost them a chance as they fell 27-19. The Jets have already played two very tough NFC North opponents, but they face one more that promises to be difficult. That would be the Detroit Lions, led by Matthew Stafford...

2014 Fantasy Football: Buy and Sell Candidates

Montee Ball Buy Steven Jackson He is old and injury prone, but he is also dirt cheap and is the bellcow of a pretty powerful offense. On top of that we are looking at some consistency, which, for the cost at which Jackson can be obtained, is valuable in and of itself.

The Green Bay Packers aren’t catching much criticism for dropping their Week 1 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Packers fans probably had hoped for a better showing than a 36-16 drubbing, but beating the defending champs on the road, well, that just isn’t easy. As a matter of fact, it’s just not something that happens very often. Someone coming into Green Bay and winning...

Why a New York Jets upset win vs. Packers is more likely than you think

It wasn’t a pretty win on Sunday against the lowly Oakland Raiders, but the bottomline is the New York Jets got it done. They won 19-14, allowing just 158 yards of total offense. But it’s their defensive line that makes their defense so scary. They had the third-best rush defense and racked up 41 sacks last season. Now, they’re preparing to take on the Green Bay Packers at...
