The pacing and immediacy of the NFL are being severely impacted by endless instant replays and late calls. And the sport is starting to drag.
2012 NFL Picks wrap up this week with a few nail-biters and several awkward, cringe-worthy matchups.
This NFC East "Championship Game" on Sunday will decide the fourth seed in the NFC playoffs. As one of just two games in which both teams have playoff implications riding on the outcome (Green Bay at Minnesota is the other), this has all the makings of a classic shootout.
I recently sat down with the Vikings' Adrian Peterson at his Minnesota home. The interview is for a new episode of In Depth. The star running back discusses his difficult childhood, touching specifically on the tragic deaths of two of his brothers and the imprisonment of his father.
So, enjoy the food and alcohol with the families for now, Steelers fans, you'll need it. We have all winter and summer to discuss all the ways in which we suck. I'll be sure to refresh you on what happens next week against the Browns, and say a final farewell to this awful, awful season.

Sunday Night Football usually produces some of the best games seen from season to season in the National Football League, and this week, the stakes couldn't be any higher -- or the game any better.
The nationally televised humiliation of Tim Tebow by the New York Jets started from day one.
Um, so wow. If the Steelers hadn't lost against the Cowboys 27-24 in OT in such a dramatic fashion, I'd say that was probably one of the best games I've seen so far in the regular season.
