Boston Red Sox: Four burning questions for the offseason

2014 was not kind to the Boston Red Sox. They floated at under .500 for most of the season and ended up 25 games out of first place in a surprisingly mediocre American League East that saw just two teams — the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees — finish with more than 83 wins.

Pittsburgh Steelers: News, stars and stats from the Houston game

For the second week in a row, I was extremely close to counting out the Steelers early. Arian Foster was scampering through the Steeler defense and JJ Watt recorded a sack and a recovered fumble, as the Texans went up 13-0 with seven minutes left in the 2nd quarter. However, all the madness began with Le’Veon Bell. The shifty back caught two key passes: One for 43 yards which...
