Will we get a “Game of the Year” rematch?

If you missed the game on Monday night between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs, you missed one of the best games of the season. It’s becoming increasingly likely that this could end up being a Super Bowl matchup in just a few months, but the Saints might have some other plans. The Rams are one of the favourites to come out of the NFC, along with the Saints, and the Chiefs have one of the best offenses in the AFC. It was clear early in the season that the Week 11 game between these two teams would be the most entertaining game of the regular season, and it definitely lived up to the hype.

Top 5 Most Overpaid Players Heading into the 2018 NFL Season

The 2018 NFL season is officially underway, but the last few weeks have seen a number of players making some trips to the bank after training camp. First, Odell Beckham Jr. hit the jackpot, securing a 5-year, $95 million dollar extension making him the highest paid receiver in league history. Not to be outdone, the Packers and Aaron Rodgers also agreed to a record-setting 4 year, $134 million dollar deal with over $100 million guaranteed. While some might argue that Beckham Jr. shouldn’t be the highest paid receiver, most people can agree that Rodgers deserves his payday. But with every good contract, there are some bad ones as well. With these huge contracts fresh in our minds, it’s time to take a look at the contracts that leave NFL fans scratching their heads.

The Nathan Peterman Experiment Went Worse Than Anybody Could Have Imagined

After taking a look at the NFC playoff picture last week, it’s time to take a look at what’s been going on in the AFC.

One of the biggest stories coming out of Week 11 has been the quarterback controversy in Buffalo. After Tyrod Taylor completed 50% of his passes for 56 yards along with an interception in their Week 10 blowout loss against the Saints, Bills coach Sean McDermott decided to make the switch to rookie Nathan Peterman. Kind of a weird move when you’re in the middle of a playoff race. In the second half of that game against the Saints, Peterman stepped in and threw for 79 yards and a touchdown, giving the Bills apparently all they evidence they needed to make the switch heading into their game against the Chargers. It was a strange decision for McDermott to change his mind from saying Taylor is still their starter on Monday, to announcing Peterman as the starter just a day later. But it didn’t take long for everyone to realize that it was a mistake to make this switch.

We’re almost at the halfway point of the NFL season and it’s still unclear who the top team is. I can’t remember the last time the league has been this competitive, usually there’s a few teams still undefeated but this year has been full of surprises.
