Georgia has made some strides in both the AP Top 25 and College Football Playoff rankings the last few weeks, jumping from as far as No. 20 in Week 11 all the way to No. 8 for Week 14. This would be an excellent time for a “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!” Gandalf the Grey meme, because I believe this is about as far as the Bulldogs can go in the rankings. Unless something catastrophic happens with the other

Matt Prater’s the only Lion to register any points the past two weeks. The Lions lost 14-6 in Arizona in week 11, then followed up with a 34-9 loss in New England this past week. Losing on the road to a pair of 9-2 teams isn’t something to be too disappointed about, it’s the way the Lions lost that demands a good amount of concern.

The San Francisco Giants spent 52 years in California without a championship before defeating the Texas Rangers in the 2010 Fall Classic. But they didn’t have to wait nearly as long to claim additional titles, going on to win it all again in 2012 and 2014.

The 2014 fantasy football playoffs are fast approaching, meaning the next couple weeks are must-win for those of you fighting to break into or remain in the postseason. Week 12 start-or-sit candidates include a quarterback who has admittedly been a letdown for fantasy football owners, a former quarterback who is now featuring as a running back, and a wide receiver who is making his anticipated ret

Many general managers across the NFL were surely intrigued when the Cleveland Browns cut ties with Ben Tate, the owner of a career 4.7 YPC entering the 2014 season. Tate's debut season in Cleveland started out well, as he averaged 5.9 yards per carry over his first two games, but he completely fell off after that. Over his final six games as a Brown, Tate registered a dreadful 2.2 YPC. When he beg
