• This is a tough task!  How to pick out the key moments from one of the most epic and memorable games in NFL history.  There seemed to be a standout incident during every drive, unexpected plays, moments of […]

    Supposedly, the teams that win in January are the ones that have carried momentum into the Play Offs.  You need to get hot at the right time, have a big December and enter the Post […]

  • Well that was better!  After a slow Wild Card Weekend, we had an enthralling and breathless Divisional Round complete with Hail Marys, record breaking feats and legends in tears.  We had overtime, 2 game winning […]

  • ThumbnailIt was meant to be brilliant!
    On paper, Wild Card Weekend looked like an amazing spectacle, full of potential classics, rookie sensations, all time greats.  I hadn’t been this excited about a weekend of sport […]

  • ThumbnailAnd then there were 12!

    The 17 weeks of the NFL Regular Season seem to have flown by far too quickly, but we couldn’t have wished for a more engrossing end to the schedule.  The Vikings and Packers produced a […]

  • Let me start by saying that Week 15 was my least favourite week of the season so far.  I was expecting plenty of tight games and teams Play Off chances hanging in the balance.  Instead, we got more blow outs than […]

  • 14!? This seems like rather a lot of things to learn, I’m not entirely sure I learnt 14 things during my entire 3 years at university – Unless you include vital nuggets, such as how to make beans on toast after 8 […]

  • There were plenty of thrilling games in Week 13, but the most important thing we learned was provided by none other than the much maligned Brady Quinn.  It’d be wrong to comment too much on the deaths of Kasandra […]

  • ThumbnailWeek 12 seemed like it lasted a week!  From Thursday evening to Tuesday morning we were treated to 16 NFL games.  We discovered that some teams are done for the season, some are definitely playoff bound and some […]

  • Week 11 saw plenty of Overtime, some absurd stats and a couple of season defining performances.  The early set of game on Sunday was full of drama and potential shocks.  The Jags almost knocked off the Texans, the […]

  • ThumbnailConsidering Week 10 was book-ended by  prime time games involving the Jags and the Chiefs, it was actually a highly enjoyable week of action. The Jags may not have contributed much to the enjoyment, but the 1 win […]

  • Thumbnail9 Things?!  This seems like rather a lot, pretty soon I’ll have to have learned something from every game each week.  Thankfully, we’re not there yet as I stayed up to watch the Chiefs-Chargers game on Friday and […]

  • ThumbnailOnce again, the NFL International Series was an overwhelming success, it may not have been the closest, most enthralling game, but the NFL continues to grow in the UK and each year the event seems bigger and more […]

  • ThumbnailThe biggest shock in Week 7 of the NFL season was that there were no big shocks! After weeks of upsets and unlikely victors, pretty much all of the usual suspects emerged unscathed this time out.  That’s not to […]

  • ThumbnailOne of the problems in writing a column such as this is that I’m setting myself up for a fall.  In recent weeks I’ve proclaimed the ability of Alex Smith, Greg Zuerlein and the Houston Texans, whilst […]

  • ThumbnailIt’s fair to say that Week 5 of the season had its fair share of duff games and blow outs.  The latter stages of one sided affairs are painful viewings, even if you support the winning team. Endless short gains, […]

  • ThumbnailIn the blink of an eye, we’ve reached the quarter way point of the Regular Season.  It’s been full of incidents, controversy and some stunning play.  Week 4 was no different, so what exactly did we learn from this […]

  • Another quiet week in the NFL with very little to talk about.  There was a minor incident at the end of the Seahawks-Packers game, but nothing much to write home about.  I’ve had to trawl around for ages trying to […]

  • ThumbnailTwo Weeks in and things are beginning to take shape.  Not a very clear shape yet, but we are beginning to see some of the themes for the season evolve.  The NFL seems tighter than ever and the ‘73 Miami Dolphins […]

  • ThumbnailOver the course of the regular season I’ll be writing a weekly article about what we’ve learnt from the previous weeks NFL action. Instead of having a set amount of topics each week I’ll be increasing my “Things […]
