Henry McKenna For The Win Published 9:42 AM EDT Apr 19, 2019 The anticipation for the NFL season is building. A look at the calendar released this week has definitely injected the NFL again into the national conversation. And it will be interesting to see how our perception of this calendar will evolve. Right now, the Washington Redskins matchup against the New York Giants in Week 16 looks like a total snoozer. But what if that game features Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock battling for a spot in the playoffs? The NFL is so unpredictable, and that's what makes it great. Working off what we know about teams from last season and this offseason, here's a week-by-week look at the NFL season, ranking those weeks in order of worst to first.

All the Ravens had to do to make the playoffs was beat the Browns. It's not as easy as it used to be. Baltimore needed a late fourth-down interception to stifle Baker Mayfield's momentum, secure a 26-24 victory over Cleveland and wrap up the AFC North. The win ended the season for the Steelers, who had closed out their own victory over Cincinnati minutes earlier and were standing on their home field, cheering for the Browns as they watched the end of the game in Baltimore on the scoreboard. Mayfield had trimmed a 13-point deficit to two and had the Browns on the march, but C.J. Mosley tipped and picked a fourth-down pass with 62 seconds left to seal the win. It prevented a nightmare repeat of last year, when all the Ravens had to do was beat the Bengals at home to clinch, but gave up a 49-yard touchdown pass with 44 seconds left to fall. Meanwhile, the Browns had a chance to finish with a winning record the season after going 0-16. Despite falling short (7-8-1), they show every sign of … [Read more...] about ICYMI in NFL’s Week 17: Ravens hang on, move on after Browns scare
Welcome back to the NFL Fun Power Rankings, where we value excitement and intrigue over wins and losses. This list is all about working out which NFL teams are worthy of your busy eyes, and which deserve to be rolled up in a carpet, set on fire, loaded into a big rocket and blasted off into the sun. There were quite a few movers and shakers in week 11 - a week which saw the Chiefs and Rams play out one of the greatest games in NFL history, Lamar Jackson make his first career start, and the Raiders win a football game. I know, anything really is possible. Here's how we stand heading into Thanksgiving, aka the day which officially marks the beginning of the 'business end' of the season. 32. New York Jets (down 1) Good news: For the first time in weeks the Jets weren't utterly abject on Sunday. Bad news: That's only because they were on a bye. All the early season optimism has faded from New Jersey, and if you watch their last few performances back it's hard to see how they've got to … [Read more...] about NFL Fun Power Rankings, week 11: Where do Rams and Chiefs stand after Monday night’s record-breaking showdown?
Perhaps Tottenham should have moved to the London Stadium after all. They have won twice there now this season – the same number as the unhappy tenants, West Ham. Even while Spurs battle their own stadium troubles, they have inflicted two painful reminders of the Hammers' endless failure to settle in at their awkward new home in Stratford. There were more pitch invaders during the 3-1 Carabao Cup defeat on Wednesday. Another flurry of fighting in the stands. On and on it goes. And who is up next at the former Olympic arena on Saturday? It's Burnley, whose visit last March prompted a mass demo beneath the director’s box and the extraordinary sight of West Ham captain Mark Noble wrestling with an angry supporter in the centre circle. It could have been Tottenham playing on the site. They had the right idea, although it was rebuffed – knock the place down and build a proper football ground. Instead, a glittering new home has arisen along Tottenham High Road. When it … [Read more...] about Spurs, West Ham stadium woes highlight Wenger role in Emirates move
Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 8:10 AM EDT Nov 2, 2018 Most NFL teams have reached halftime of their 2018 season. It's a natural point to re-evaluate priorities and make adjustments. With that in mind, here's one major question each club faces moving forward: AFC Baltimore Ravens: Is the future near? After a promising 3-1 start, they sit at 4-4 with the division-leading Steelers coming to town. We know GM Ozzie Newsome is winding down, so it seems unlikely that rookie QB Lamar Jackson would replace Joe Flacco until this club's postseason possibilities are officially exhausted. Right? Buffalo Bills: How do they help Josh Allen? An unpolished prospect carrying a franchise's hopes on his howitzer arm deserves better. Before sustaining a Week 6 elbow injury, Allen was regularly running for his life while relying on a 30-year-old running back (LeSean McCoy) as his primary weapon. Allen's development could be in serious jeopardy without a major course correction. Cincinnati Bengals: … [Read more...] about NFL: One question for every team in second half of 2018 season
