The Seahawks had more than enough offense to beat the Cardinals Sunday. Actually, they had more than enough on four snaps. The Seahawks traded on big plays and an opponent which couldn’t score, taking a 35-6 win over the Cardinals and the inside track for the NFC West title. They racked up 596 yards, but 263 of…
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch iced Sunday night’s win over the Cardinals with a career-long 79-yard touchdown run. He entered the end zone with a dive that included a crotch grab. The maneuver was identical to the manner in which Lynch capped off the “Beastquake” touchdown run from the wild-card playoffs four years ago. When…
The Lions and Packers have identical 11-4 records. Moreover, Detroit won the first 2014 regular-season meeting between the clubs by double digits. Nevertheless, in the rematch, host Green Bay is a big favorite to knock off Detroit next Sunday and capture the NFC North for a fourth consecutive season. Oddsmakers have made the Packers 7-…
The final Sunday night game of the season has been announced. And it won’t be the NFC South win-and-in-lose-and-go-home championship game. Instead, it will be the AFC North title game, with the Steelers hosting the Bengals. The league opted for Bengals-Steelers even though the Steelers already have clinched a playoff berth. On Monday night, the…
Marshawn Lynch is obviously feeling better. The Seahawks running back, who missed exactly the first quarter with what was reported as an upset stomach, has now upset the Cardinals fans. His touchdown run has given the Seahawks a commanding 14-3 lead, on a night which doesn’t seem to favor the Cardinals ever scoring that many.…
Points are so overrated. The Seahawks and Cardinals are whaling on each other thus far in this one, and the Cardinals might have just taken a decisive 3-0 lead with a second-quarter field goal. Cards sub quarterback Ryan Lindley is off to a rough start, hitting 4-of-10 passes for 39 yards. But he managed to…
No one still knows what 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh’s future will be. Answers apparently will be coming soon after the regular season ends. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported during the Sunday pregame show that a “swift” decision will come after the regular season ends regarding Harbaugh’s future. The options are fairly limited in number: …
The Seahawks may be thinking about life without Marshawn Lynch after this season. They got a sneak preview tonight. Lynch wasn’t on the field for the start of the game, with what the Seahawks called an “upset stomach.” In his place, Robert Turbin got the start and ran four times for 22 yards. The Seahawks…
When Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill hired G.M. Steve Keim and coach Bruce Arians, no one expected them to face so much adversity due to injury — or to have so much success with a collection of next men up. Next year, they also could be dealing with a salary-cap problem. Receiver Larry Fitzgerald has a…
A promising season for the Bills has come to a disappointing end, as a loss in Oakland today has eliminated Buffalo from playoff contention. The Raiders came out playing hard and surprised the Bills, winning 26-24. Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr showed again that he’s a promising prospect, if not yet a great quarterback. He…
