Nick Folk brings optimism in 2014 after decade-long Jets kicker carousel

With the NFL draft less than a month away, the Jets have plenty of needs to fill on the team. One position most Jets fans and management aren’t worried about is kicker. That wasn’t always the case though. It is very rare for a team to have a franchise place kicker like the Raiders and Sebastian Janikowski or the Lions and Jason Hanson before he retired. Here is a look back at...

Infographic: Where the Browns rank in terms of draft value

Good news, Browns fans. You know how we have long felt that the Browns have been horrible at obtaining value from the NFL Draft? Well, it turns out that every team, by and large, has done a poor job of drafting for value. The bad news is, while all NFL teams have largely failed at hitting it rich on the regular, the Browns have been among the league’s worst at the whole value thing...

According to ESPN, commissioner Roger Goddell is considering having the league’s competition committee abolish the PAT. On the surface this makes sense. Last season, there were a total of five...

Winners and Losers: Bengals vs Dolphins

The Cincinnati Bengals had to play last Thursday on just four days of rest, not including travel time. The expected happened. It was a sloppy game on both sides, and wound up being decided by one play in overtime. The Bengals fell to 6-3, though they still have a cushion in the AFC North of two games. In contrast to last week, when the Bengals had plenty to be happy about, this week...

That's exactly where the Bengals were when Mike Nugent kicked a 54-yard field goal...
