    Well That Was Ugly: Packers Kill Vikings on Thursday Night Football (Videos)

    The last three nationally televised non-Sunday NFL games have been pretty one-sided. Last Friday the headline was “Giants Annihilate Washington,” and on Tuesday it was Chiefs Pound Patriots.” Today it’s “Packers Kill Vikings.” I’d like to think the carnage will stop, and that this Monday we’ll finally get a good game. But the matchup is […]

    As the dregs of summer continue, rather than giving the people awesome highlights from hard-fought Sunday games, we’re relegated to giving highlights from practices. If these performances were any indication, then Sammy Watkins would be the Michael Jordan of the NFL. But we’d probably want to make room for Vikings kicker Blair Walsh on the […]

    Underdog teams have always had an enchanting pull in the world of the NFL – those lowly franchises that have eked out season after season and yet somehow are given the chance to fulfill their destinies.

    Well, the New York Giants finally found a team that’s a bigger train wreck than they are.
