    Marcus Williams missed the important tackle in the New Orleans Saints’ season, allowing Stefon Diggs to score a miraculous touchdown and send the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship Game next week. After the game, the amateur editors at Wikipedia had their say. Pro Wrestling Walrus @RasslinWalrus Oh my god, the Wiki trolls already got poor Marcus Williams of the #Saints. 🤣🤣 8:16 PM - Jan 14, 2018 “Easiest tackle in football history?” We’ll leave that to your opinion, but Williams did have the chance to send the Saints to the next round of the playoffs. The Saints’ second-round draft...

    Bengals intercept a pass to seal the game. Promptly fumble it back to the Steelers. Then commit 30 yards of penalties in the final seconds to allow Pittsburgh the game-winning chip shot field goal.

    I'm not guaranteeing it won't be New England - but 4 losses in their last 6 games is not a fluke. Of the others: it's not clear that Denver has a QB who can do it (Manning is old and hurt, but Osweiler still got benched for him); Cincinatti looks good in many ways but has managed to lose in the wild card round after 10 or 11 regular season wins in each of the last three seasons; Pittsburgh is inconsistent, having lost to the lowly Ravens just two weeks ago; and Houston just barely scraped in by winning a...

    There is no joy in Shillville — the “dynasty” got a bone in its throat for the sixth consecutive year. It’s over. Now, please, can all of you jock-sniffers, cheerleaders, frontrunners and pom-pom boys just Get Over It and move on to the next overhyped sporting event. I’ve got it — Beanpot Fever Sweeps Hub! Oh, the inconsolable gloom that envelops Patsies Nation. I heard that on Sunday night after the stomping, some local loser issued this plaintive cry: “My win-tah is spoiled!” On Sunday, “we” were going to the Super Bowl. Then “they” lost. Really, it would take a...

    Since taking the field with a 18-0 record in Super Bowl XLII, just 60 minutes from perfection, the New England Patriots have not won a playoff game. In their latest postseason collapse, versus the new York Jets, New England's offense, averaging a league-best 32 points, was held to 14 points at home until a garbage-time touchdown with seconds remaining. There are many reasons for New England's postseason woes: some specific to the Patriots, others generic to all football, one particular to a great performance by the Jets' defense. But Tuesday Morning Quarterback thinks this is the core reason: The football...

    First of all, I’m not as ecstatic about a 9-7 record as most people. Where are all those people (including area journalists) who were saying that this team was going to go 11-5 or possibly 12-4 this season? Anyone with a modicum of football intelligence is keenly aware that the Texans were fortunate to play one of the softest schedules in the NFL this season. An opening day loss to rookie QB Mark Sanchez and the Jets got the season off to an ominous start, but to their credit, the Texans did rise to the occasion and feasted on the...

    Playoff Hopes Still Alive With One Week to Play I facetiously told a friend ago that I had a better chance of nabbing a Pulitzer Prize than the Texans had of making the playoffs after losing their fourth in a row and falling to 5-7 a few weeks back. But after watching how the stars have seemingly lined-up perfectly in favor of the Texans over the past few weeks, maybe a trip to Columbia University during the month of May just might be in the cards for me after all someday.

    One of the most vicious collisions you’ll ever see, posted here because I know most of you watched the game and are wondering how he’s doing. Miraculously, despite “significant” neck pain, he’s “neurogically intact” with movement in all his limbs. No diagnosis yet but presumably it’s whiplash and/or a concussion. So brutal was this that, after watching the replay, I was hoping he was “merely” paralyzed and not actually dead on the field. Click the image to watch.

    GREEN BAY, Wis. - Randy Moss broke such new ground with a disgusting gesture after his game-clinching touchdown catch Sunday that Fox television refused to replay it - until the postgame show. The star receiver shot a fake moon at the Lambeau Field crowd, pretending to drop his pants, then rubbed himself on the padded goal post. It made previous controversial celebrations by NFL receivers Terrell Owens and Joe Horn look like harmless child's play.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The friendly woman behind the counter yesterday afternoon at the Titans Team Store in the Coliseum said she was sorry, but she had no information on the gurney race that was supposed to take place nearby and award to the winner two tickets to tomorrow's Steelers-Titans playoff game. She was happy to try to get some, however, and headed directly for the phone. "What are they going to do," she asked over her shoulder, "put an injured Pittsburgh Steeler on the gurney?" Told that she had summed up the contest in one sentence, the woman gasped. "I...
