Madden points satellite of love at Saints’ O-line

John Madden was live from the Super Bowl Media Center — via satellite — to award the 2011 Madden Protectors Award to the Saints’ offensive line.

‘Playbook': 49ers, Giants win down the seam

When the Giants and 49ers earned their way into the NFC Championship Game, they had won their games on the scoreboard – and one particular area of the field.

Playbook: Breaking down the divisional round

Four divisional playoff games this weekend to break down. Let’s get right to it.

To win one game: Brady or Brees?

It’s a simple yet complex question: Would you take Tom Brady or Drew Brees at quarterback to win one game?

‘Playbook’ mailbag: Brees gears up for Niner pass rush

The No. 3 seeds (Houston and San Francisco) are feeling pretty good about themselves after big wins in the Wild Card round. What kind of obstacles will they face this week?

Three and out: Sanchez root of Jets’ offensive woes?

Mark Sanchez is the latest target of player ire in the Jets’ locker room. But is he the root cause of Gang Green’s offensive woes this season and how does it affect the team’s fantasy outlook for 2012?

Playbook: Fullback, commitment to run key to Saints success

His individual numbers won’t stand out (with just 4 carries for 4 yards and 11 catches for 50), but Jed Collins has been a critical part of a Saints’ run game that resembles more of the 2009 Super Bowl champion squad than a 2010 team that veered heavily toward the pass game.

Playoff Challenge owners take a pass on bye week players

Even with the lure of double points, most owners shied away from starting players on bye weeks in the first run of the NFL Playoff Challenge. But there were some interesting names that found their way into lineups.

Three and out: Roethlisberger still hobbling

Ben Roethlisberger says his ankle isn’t feeling great, but it shouldn’t necessarily scare Playoff Challenge players away from using his favorite WR targets.

Three and out: Redman the man for Steelers

Rashard Mendenhall could be out for an extended period of time with a knee injury. It opens an opportunity for Isaac Redman but he may not be the first choice of fantasy owners.

NFL Wild Card Weekend matchups all set

With Week 17 in the books, we now know who will play who and when during NFL Wild Card Weekend.

Tale of the Tape: Brees, Ryan square off in N.O.

Heading into their second matchup with the Saints this season, the Falcons will look to duplicate their last performance – minus one fourth-down failure.

Three and out: Don’t give up on Johnson yet

Andre Johnson is out yet again, but fantasy owners shouldn’t quit on the talented wideout just yet.

Mr. Drew to Elmo — for the touchdown!

Drew Brees leads the NFL this season with a dizzying 4,366 yards through the air, so it makes sense he would be the man to teach our nation’s youth about the word “measure” during a recent visit to “Sesame Street.”

Week 15 playoff scenarios

Congratulations to the Texans, who have clinched the first playoff berth in franchise history. With three weeks left in the season, there are still eight playoff spots up for grabs. And three teams – the Patriots, Ravens and Steelers – all have a chance to officially join the party this weekend.
