    The 15 Winningest Playoff Coaches in NFL History

    Don’t look now, but if the New England Patriots make it to the Super Bowl to this year, Bill Belichick will tie Cowboys legend Tom Landry for most playoff wins by a coach. Then, obviously, if they win, he’ll sit in the top spot all by himself. However, that wouldn’t necessarily make Belichick the winningest playoff coach […]

    4 Reasons The Broncos Won’t Make The Super Bowl (And 5 Reasons They Will)

    With this piece, we seek to provide definitive evidence as to why the Denver Broncos will absolutely, definitely not make the Super Bowl this year. Then we’re going to offer up several other reasons why they definitely will. It’s a pretty hard-line stance we’re taking, insisting that the Broncos both will and won’t make the […]

    Watch British Teens Get Tested on their Knowledge of the NFL (Video)

    In North America, even people who know nothing about football know something about football. Your girlfriend may not know what teams play in what cities, but she probably knows that Tom Brady is a football player (because he’s married to Gisele Bundchen), and she certainly knows that the Super Bowl is not a baseball game.

    25 Crazy Super Bowl XLVII Fans

    Hey, I love the Super Bowl. Super Bowl Sunday is one of my favorite days of the year. But I really doubt I’ll ever spend upwards of $3,000 to go to the big game in person. And even if I did, I doubt I would dress up like a lunatic. Fortunately for your amusement and […]

    Super Bowl XLVII: Joe Flacco Drops F-Bomb on National TV (Video)

    Last night the Baltimore Ravens’ Joe Flacco joined an elite club: NFL quarterbacks who have won the Super Bowl. And since he is only the 30th member of that club, it’s understandable that he was extremely excited. That’s why Joe Flacco also joined another (less prestigious) club last night: athletes who dropped an f-bomb on […]

    Beyoncé’s Super Bowl Halftime Performance Summed Up in 5 GIFs

    I don’t know about you, but I thought the halftime performance by Beyoncé at Super Bowl XLVII last night was pretty great. For starters, Beyoncé is not Madonna, and anyone who is not Madonna is okay in my book. More importantly, the production was pretty slick, Beyoncé did some good songs that a lot of […]

    The Lights Went Out at ‘Super Bowl XLVII’

    Well, last night we saw two things that we’d never, ever seen at a Super Bowl before. And they came within minutes of each other. The first was a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Jacoby Jones, which was pretty awesome. The second was the power outage. That wasn’t as awesome. The game was […]
