Much like Clark Griswald in the holiday classic, Christmas Vacation, many NFL players and coaches are in need of a few relaxing days all to themselves (and that Christmas bonus!). Whether from a disappointing season, injury, poor performance or single-handedly carrying their team through the first 15 weeks, these players and coaches could use a little respite. And probably a large glass of egg nog.

Sometimes things go right for you on Monday night. Even for Adam Rank. No, seriously.

It was “Statement Sunday,” which meant a slate full of fantastic games between playoff contenders. Or so we thought. Three of the six games turned out to be duds. Instead, it was just another week in the NFL where another unsuspecting man got hit in the face with a football. Let’s get to the unexpected (and expected) for week 15.

In today’s Three and Out: Bryce Brown and Mason Crosby both earn votes of confidence from their coaches, but fantasy owners don’t necessarily have to follow suit.

Fantasy football stopped being fun for a lot of us in Week 16. Though, I’ve long contended fantasy football isn’t fun. You’re gutted when your team loses, and you’re merely relived when your team wins.

The Detroit Lions stayed on the road in week 15 as they faced the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium, where Calvin Johnson aimed to continue his outstanding season, and close in on Jerry Rice’s all-time receiving record.

» Just when you thought the Chiefs had rediscovered Jamaal Charles, he ends up with just 12 touches. Sigh. » Here’s another name to remove from your list of “So Much Potential”: Matthew Stafford. His inconsistency is just too great and after four seasons doesn’t appear to be improving. Three interceptions today and fewer than four points. Not every week needs to be a 30-point bonanza, but it would be nice to have a measure of confidence that one week is going to look pretty similar to the last. » Larry Fitzgerald had four catches for 22 yards, which has been right around his average for the past five weeks. Hopefully you had the presence of mind to bench him this week. » Calvin Johnson […]

Here are your week 15 NFL horoscopes:

By: Robert Karpeles As the last few weeks of the NFL season come to an end, it’s important to keep in mind that the most exciting football hasn’t even been played yet. Yes, the best is still to come and with good games come even better storylines. You know, the one’s about the Jets sneaking in at the last second, quarterback controversies in San Francisco and the health of the quarterback in our nations’ capital. We live for football. But we also live for the great stories that stay with us after the games have been played. Here our nine things we hope for nine teams with playoff potential: Jets – Make the playoffs. Please, these guys just have to […]

LeBron James recently pitted his favorite things against each other in a bracket style challenge. Skittles, Haircuts, Martin Lawrence, and NFL Sundays squared off among others. Can you guess what comes out on top?
