    10 Songs You’ll Find on Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles’ Playlist

    Jamaal Charles has been one of football’s best running backs, if not the best, during the 2013 NFL season.  His 1,343 yards from scrimmage is the second-highest total in the league—behind only LeSean McCoy‘s 1,408—while his 918 rushing yards and eight touchdowns rank him fourth among running backs in each category.  And perhaps most importantly, […]

    This Graphic Perfectly Illustrates the Parity of the 2013 NFL Season

    As those of you participating in NFL survivor pools already know, this has been one of the wackiest, least-predictable NFL seasons in memory.

    Stat Line of the Night — 11/24/2013 — Philip Rivers

    This edition of the “Stat Line of the Night” could have went to Knowshon Moreno of the Broncos (230 total yards, one touchdown) or Josh Gordon of the Browns (17 receptions, 237 yards, one touchdown), but both of their brilliant performance came in a losing effort.  That leaves the door open for San Diego Charges […]
