The Carolina defense forced three turnovers and held Arizona to 78 total yards of offense, an NFL postseason record, in the franchise's first postseason victory in nine years.
Win and you're in. San Diego controlled its own playoff destiny Sunday but failed to beat Kansas City falling 19-7 on the road. The Bolts will look back on this game as one of missed opportunities.
I don't spend a lot of time with my family in general. I think the main reason is that I'm the crazy-progressive-political relative, but part of it is that I'm a lesbian -- one who doesn't blend and pass quietly as an unmarried lady with a lady roommate who happens to come along to family events. Few people are overtly rude, but the expectation that I not make waves is very strong.
The collective, will, wisdom and "ownership" of the Jets nation has now clearly spoken. It is yelling: "Fire John Idzik." Woody Johnson, hope you are listening.
The New York Jets avoided setting a franchise record for consecutive losses by defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-13 Sunday afternoon. Michael Vick threw two touchdowns and the Jets forced four turnovers in the win.
There is no doubt Boaz is on the verge of breaking out. He has the industry experience and understanding of a veteran, but the hunger and work ethic of a rookie. A mix like that is not one that comes along often, and is the perfect blend for success.
Abhi Sinha is a busy guy. Big on sports, Abhi fell into acting during college. Now really, how do you choose between sports and acting? Tough call that Abhi made! But look at him now!
That shiny first date newness of Week 1 has worn off and it's time to settle in for the long grind of the season. But here's the thing, it's still too early to really know what kind of talent these teams have.
I've greatly enjoyed my time, but I no longer wish to put my body at risk for the sake of entertainment. I think about the rest of my life and I want to live it with much quality. And physically, I am grateful that I can walk away feeling as good as I did when I stepped into it.
Whatever happened in Week 17, it was still pretty incredible that, after starting the season at 0-4 (the first time since 1968), the Steelers STILL had a shot at the playoffs -- of course with a lot of help.
After everything that went down, with one regular season game left, the Steelers are 7-8 and still in playoff contention. What a game. What a win.
After the Bengals botched some huge special teams plays, the Steelers were able to build up a lead that their AFC North rivals were never able to catch.
Time to put the final nail in the coffin of the 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers season.
With three AFC North teams boasting a rather hilarious 4-6 record, the division is kind of wide open, and the Steelers actually have a shot at redeeming what began as a truly horrific season.
Coming into Sunday, with a contest between two teams that had a combined five wins, well, you knew it was going to be an absolute thriller. Just kidding. It wasn't. But the Pittsburgh Steelers were able to bounce back from a humiliating 55-point, 610-yard loss last week.
WOW. Could the Pittsburgh Steelers possibly get more atrocious? I kind of don't want to think about it. Staring down the rest of the season boasting a...
