Monday night was do or die for just about everybody. The entire season hinged on one game. And Patriots WR Wes Welker treated it like a Super Bowl … and he dropped the ball.

The Rewind: NFL players who should host SNL, Top NFL TV cameos, Guy Fieri, and NFL Horoscopes for week 14

As the NFL regular season comes to a close, we looked to the stars to see what was on the horizon for every NFL team. Here are your Week 14 NFL Horoscopes:
Posted: Sunday, November 25th, 2012 | Adam Rank Tags: Reggie Bush, A.J. Green, C.J. Spiller, Cecil Shorts, Chris Rainey, Dez Bryant, Isaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer, Justin Blackmon, Knowshon Moreno, Mark Sanchez, Matt Forte, Matthew Stafford, Michael Bush, Michael Turner, Mike Tomlin, rashard mendenhall, Red Dalton, Reggie Bush, Rob Gronkowski, Robert Griffin III, Ronnie Hillman, Tom Brady, Tony Romo
One of the biggest fears as a fantasy enthusiast, other than having to start Mark Sanchez, is for one of your guys to have a huge day … after you’ve long given up on him.

Time now to take a look at the unexpected (and expected) from Week 10, and we’re not going to talk about new Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni. Although, if you’ve followed my work, you know I love the move and have called for it the last couple of weeks. (Just look back to the 2011 Lakers season to see what an unmotivated Phil Jackson is all about.)
Richard Sherman discusses just what set him off after Sunday’s victory over the Patriots.

This was the kind of week where why wouldn’t Chris Johnson have his best game of the season against the Houston Texans. And congratulations to the 65 percent of you who still started Johnson this week, kudos to you.

Well, this motivation poster clearly isn’t doing its job in New Orleans. You almost expect a new poster this week, maybe Sean Payton hanging from a branch with the inscription, “Hang in there, baby!”
Mario Williams discusses facing Tom Brady in a Week 4 showdown.
With the Patriots looming, Ravens S Bernard Pollard discusses his response when fans call him “The Brady Killer”
For years, major Patriots injuries have had one constant — Bernard Pollard was either involved or had a front-row seat for them. Think about it. When Tom Brady tore his ACL, it was Pollard with the Chiefs who slammed into his left knee. When Wes Welker tore his ACL, Pollard with the Texans was inches away from drilling him. And last year, when TE Rob Gronkowski suffered a brutal high-ankle sprain leading up to the Super Bowl, it was Pollard with the Ravens who brought him down (left). Three different teams for Pollard, three different injuries to Patriots. Yikes. It’s no wonder that he’s considered one of the all-time Patriots villains by fans. There are even T-Shirts honoring, um, his […]
When it comes to fashion, our NFL stars might not go all out like their NBA counterparts. If the September issue of GQ is any indication, however, we are going to see more style off the field this season. Here’s the best fashion from Week 1:

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.
Tim TebowTim Tebow makes the start for the New York Jets … just not where you would expect.
First things first. Patriots QB Tom Brady suffered a bloody nose when Titans pass-rusher Kamerion Wimbley sacked him early in the 34-13 beat-down here at LP Field. But I’m told that, upon first examination, that Brady did not break his nose. He’ll be reassessed tomorrow. But still, there he was (left) with a bandage on it during his post-game after an efficient 23 of 31 performance for 236 yards and two TDs. Brady quipped to me, “Guess it’s not the preseason anymore. That didn’t happen in the preseason.” He’s right. What I loved, though was his reaction. Lots of jokes… and some seriousness. Brady said, “I never mind a little blood.” The image he has is one thing, and he […]
