Next year, the city of New Orleans will host the NFL’s biggest event, Super Bowl XLVII. At the FedEx awards news conference Wednesday, Saints OT Jermon Bushrod was asked about what it would be like if the team played in the game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

We are six days from the Super Bowl. And when you think of the number six and Super Bowls it can only mean one thing — the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cowboys LB DeMarcus Ware says the key for the Giants is having a quarterback with the last name Manning.

With Week 17 in the books, we now know who will play who and when during NFL Wild Card Weekend.
Posted: Friday, December 30th, 2011 | NFL.com Staff Tags: Three and out, Antonio Brown, Ben Roethlisberger, Dallas Cowboys, Daniel Thomas, Miami Dolphins, Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh Steelers, Reggie Bush, Tony Romo
Tony Romo is expected to be under center for the regular season finale Sunday. If his past track record is any indication, fantasy owners should feel comfortable having him in their lineups.
The final week of the NFL regular season is upon us, and the playoff picture is anything but settled. The Texans are pegged into the No. 3 seed – and in the AFC, that’s the only peg lodged.
On the one hand, there are only three out of 12 playoff spots still up for grabs heading into the final week of the regular season. On the other hand, there are so many possibilities in terms on a) who gets those three spots; and b) where teams fall in the seeding. Here are the playoff scenarios heading into Sunday:
Posted: Monday, December 26th, 2011 | NFL.com Staff Tags: Three and out, Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Jay Cutler, John Skelton, Josh McCown, Kahlil Bell, Kevin Kolb, Larry Fitzgerald, Matt Forte, Tony Romo
Jay Cutler is hoping to make his way back for Chicago’s season finale, but fantasy owners shouldn’t rush to put him back in their lineups just yet.

It looks like Ben Roethlisberger could sit out the remainder of the regular season. That could put a lot more of the offensive burden on the shoulders of Rashard Mendenhall
Seven down, five to go, two weeks left to figure it all out. Seven teams have clinched playoff spots and four more can do so this weekend: The cowboys, falcons and Lions in the NFC and — that’s right — Tim Tebow and the Broncos in the AFC. Of course, there’s still plenty of jockeying for playoff position – home-field advantage, byes, etc.
Cowboy fans had huge expectations coming into this year. A second year with Dez Bryant and Miles Austin at wide receiver, another year with DeMarcus Ware rushing the passer, and their first go-round with renowned defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. But after two consecutive, heartbreaking losses, first to the Cardinals and last week to the Giants, the mood in Dallas is shifting. Fans are wondering: What’s wrong with the Cowboys?
Losing Greg Jennings to a knee injury certainly will impact fantasy owners currently in the playoffs, but there is plenty of value to be found in the rest of Green Bay’s deep receiving corps.

Watching tape in preparation for the Giants this weekend, Rob Ryan has to be licking his lips or plucking his gray beard; however excitement manifests with the Cowboys defensive coordinator, he must have shown plenty of it after seeing New York’s situation at offensive tackle.
With both Laurent Robinson and Miles Austin back at Cowboys practice, Robinson’s fantasy value is in flux. But fantasy owners could do worse than to take a chance on Robinson for another week.
