If there was a gloomy moment for the Panthers during their destruction of the Cardinals in the NFC Championship game, it was when linebacker Thomas Davis left the field with his right arm immobilized by the training staff. The injury, a broken arm, turned out to be as bad as it looked, but Davis said after the game…
Well done, sir. Your celebration of a Panthers touchdown may have busted your neck, but it succeeded in making millions bust their guts laughing.
Cam Newton is leading his Carolina Panthers team to an NFC championship and is almost certainly the NFL MVP. These achievements seem almost modest, you know, for Superman. But the Man of Steel took flight in the third quarter of tonight’s blowout NFC title game; ¡Es un pájaro! ¡Es un avión!
Microsoft has been on a season-long campaign to make sure you know the tablet computers on NFL sidelines are their Surface models, not iPads. Like most Microsoft products, the Surface tablets are crashing—at least those on the New England sideline. Money well-spent, Microsoft.
We don’t deny that it would be hilarious to watch Von Miller cream an unsuspecting Tom Brady well after the whistle. But we certainly can’t endorse it, which is exactly what ESPN’s Danny Kanell did on his radio show today.
When Andy Reid was fired by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012, our own Tom Scocca called him a “powerful but slow football thinker,” and described what it was like to watch Reid’s offense slowly, painfully deny itself a shot at a Super Bowl victory:
For a Broncos’ offense without much going in the air (Peyton Manning’s struggles didn’t magically go away, though the receivers’ drops may have hurt more than anything else), Denver’s longest play from scrimmage was a weird one. Early in the fourth quarter, Manning slid to the turf to avoid perceived pressure—then…
It’s hard to call any play made by a team that was up 31-0 at halftime and led through all four quarters a true “game-saver,” but there’s no denying that the Panthers were in need of a big play after the Seahawks’ successful fake punt late in the third quarter. That’s when Josh Norman went off-script to pull off one…
Had it all gone right for the Steelers, Fitzgerald Toussaint wouldn’t have fumbled away a promising drive with ten minutes left, leading to the Broncos’ go-ahead and ultimately winning score. Of course, had it all gone right for the Steelers, Toussaint wouldn’t have been in there.
With a halftime score of 31-0, the public demanded it. So here’s the first half highlights of today’s Seahawks-Panthers as called by pro wrestling legend “J.R.” Jim Ross.
Remember those Aaron Rodgers heroics from a few minutes ago, how he threw for a first down on fourth-and-20 and then found the end zone on the final play of regulation to force overtime? Yeah, he never touched the football again as Carson Palmer found Larry Fitzgerald a few times—the last on a goal-line shovel…
A month after Aaron Rodgers found Richard Rodgers for a miracle hail mary to beat Detroit, the Green Bay quarterback did it again—saving the Packers’ season by forcing overtime against the Cardinals with a desperation heave to Jeff Janis as time expired.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was a guest on the Cook and Poni sports radio show this morning, and shed a bit more light on what exactly is wrong with his throwing shoulder, which he injured during Saturday’s Wild Card game against the Bengals.
Blair Walsh’s heartbreaking shank that ended Minnesota’s season lifted spirits in the Pacific Northwest just as it crushed those in the Land of
Ten Thousand Lakes. Here’s how his missed 27-yarder sounded on KFAN in the Twin Cities (above) and on KIRO in Seattle (below).
Seahawks fans haven’t had much to cheer about offensively today, but Seattle’s Doug Baldwin gave his team a much-needed first down in the third quarter today with an Odell Beckham-tier one-handed grab in the sub-zero temperatures.
