Laying out the 2016 NFL draft order

We now know who holds the top 20 picks of the 2016 NFL draft. Here’s a breakdown: 1. Tennessee Titans: They won’t be taking a quarterback and will likely shop this pick pretty aggressively.

Final NFL Power Rankings: Panthers, Colts Among Biggest Surprises In 2015

Well. That was weird. Sports seasons, by nature, are unpredictable, and the NFL might be the best example of that, but no one could have predicted how bizarre the 2015 football season would have been. The NFL playoffs are upon us, and the fact that there’s really no clear-cut Super Bowl favorite pretty much tells you how wide-open (or, if you’re pessimistic, mediocre) this season...

Look: Falcons playoff chances are ridiculously slim

The Atlanta Falcons used to be a football team that won football games in the NFL. They started out 5-0 and have been on a collapse ever since, though it’s something the NFL has seen a lot of over the past three seasons.

Ryan still looking for ways to fix Falcons' scoring woes

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Quarterback Matt Ryan doesn't have a cure-all for Atlanta's problems on offense.
