Rams-Cowboys Preview

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams have the momentum Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys crave going into a rematch of a divisional playoff game from last season. Despite their second three-game losing streak of the season, the Cowboys have something the Rams want even more but will need help getting even if the defending NFC champions keep winning: control of their playoff chances. LA (8-5) visits Dallas on Sunday as the first team out of the conference playoff race with three games remaining, while the Cowboys (6-7) somehow are still tied atop the NFC East with Philadelphia after seven losses in 10 games.

Antonio Brown, Robert Kraft, Pats and Bruins among most searched on Google in 2019

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

You people are searching Antonio Brown on Google way, way too much. Seriously, the former New England Patriots wide receiver was the fifth most searched on Google in 2019, according to CNN. To go along with Brown, Pats owner Robert Kraft was the tenth most searched person in 2019 -- it's no surprise either considering the major massage parlor scandal he was involved in.

The Dallas Cowboys need a coach and Urban Meyer needs a coaching job (well, not really, but he's available if he wanted one). Meyer is one of the best coaches in college football history. “I think all of us, including the fans, want to win a damn football game,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on the NFL Network a couple weeks back.

Rising Rams, slipping Cowboys square off

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

Playoff foes just one year ago, the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys are in scramble mode just to reach the postseason again. Their Sunday meeting at Arlington, Texas, will take on a playoff feel as the Cowboys attempt to emerge from a three-game losing streak while the Rams try to make a push toward a wild-card spot that seemed unlikely just two weeks ago. At 6-7, the Cowboys should be thinking about next season, but in a down year for the NFC East, they are tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for first place.

Vikings can’t afford misstep vs. Chargers

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

But Minnesota is just one game ahead of the Los Angeles Rams and two in front of the charging Chicago Bears. And while the Chargers (5-8) are no longer in the hunt for an AFC playoff berth, Zimmer sees a very scary opponent, one that just rolled up season highs for points, total offense (525 yards) and first downs (27) last week in a dominating 45-10 rout of the host Jacksonville Jaguars. Quarterback Philip Rivers, having a down year by his standards, passed for 314 yards and three touchdowns against the Jaguars on his 38th birthday.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur praises Mitch Trubisky ahead of Week 15 showdown

Wednesday, December 11th, 2019

And there's no better time for the Bears to have their quarterback dishing dimes than entering 'Packers week'. "I just think he's playing at a really high level right now," Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Wednesday. "They rolled up a pretty good number on a pretty solid Dallas defense.

Mitchell Trubisky rides Bears’ win streak into Pack rematch

Wednesday, December 11th, 2019

Confidence has placed Mitchell Trubisky and the Chicago Bears offense in a far better situation than at midseason. Trubisky is riding high during a three-game winning streak and no longer feels he's operating an offense mired at the bottom of the NFL rankings — even if that's where the Bears are. "I just feel like we have a newfound identity of what we want to do, and everybody is really locked into what they have to do within their job description on the offense," Trubisky said Wednesday at Halas Hall.
