Unlike the regular season, I currently lead The Drive picks heading into this round, which means I should keep the momentum going into this week’s slate of games. Here are my picks…
In honor of Sunday’s 76th Golden Globes, I present to you the first annual Boston sports Golden Globes.
Forget playing a flawed-Texans squad in the Divisional Round while the Chiefs had to tangle with the Chargers. Now, the Pats must face Phillip Rivers and the Bolts in what will likely be New England’s toughest Divisional Round match-up since their 35-31 win vs. Baltimore in 2014.
What a weekend of games? On Wild Card weekend there always seems to be at least one game that you can’t believe is taking place in the playoffs. Last year it was Jacksonville beating Buffalo (this really happened) 10-3. It was a tight game at halftime, when it was tied 3-3, but the Jags broke it open in the 3rd quarter with a touch down that apparently put the game out of reach. Were they wearing leather helmets? Did they disallow the forward pass? Did a hologram of Woody Hayes coach both teams?
Giants/Cowboys in week 17, is like the sequel to the movie that exceeded your expectations but you KNOW that the second movie is going to be hot garbage. Maybe we need Eli Manning to announce his retirement before the game to spice things up a bit? Come on Eli, do it for ratings!
The Patriots were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of Super Bowls danced in their heads.
With Tom in his recovery pajamas and pompom cap,
had just settled in for a long winter’s nap.
Hear from new Black Bears’ head football coach, Nick Charlton.
I jinxed it. The first rule about Josh Gordon was, you didn’t talk about Josh Gordon. Not how well he was playing on the field, not the dimensions he added to the Patriots offense and especially not the 2-ton elephant in the room that was his ability to stay off of the Commissioner’s list.
Have you found your Christmas dinner to be lacking in ingenuity or flavor? I have found some of the most unique traditions from around the world that you could bring to the table this year to really throw a curveball at the holidays.
The #1 seed in the AFC is likely out of reach. But the idea of the AFC Championship Game taking place at Gillette Stadium is still very much in play.
