A man was arrested after he allegedly threatened to kill players and fans at Heinz Field during Sunday’s playoff game between the Steelers and Jaguars, San Antonio TV station KSAT reported.
If this is indeed the end of Revis’ historic NFL career, it’s a shame it seemingly went out with a whimper rather than a wham.
The Falcons were winning a lot prettier last season because of offense, but there’s no doubt they’ve gotten grittier this season and go into the tournament battle-tested.
Much has been made about some significant offensive regression in the transition from Kyle Shanahan to Steve Sarkisian at offensive coordinator. The Falcons, however, wouldn’t be in the playoff field without the work of Dan Quinn and Marquand Manuel on the other side of the ball.
Last season, the Falcons were No. 17 against the run. This season they upgraded to No. 9, not far behind the Eagles, Vikings and Panthers.
The Saints are 1-6 all-time on the road in the playoffs. In their seven road playoff games, they have 18 turnovers and just three takeaways.
The Vikings allowed just 15.8 points per game during the regular season, the fewest in the league. They also allowed just 13 passing touchdowns, also the fewest in the NFL.
The Saints allowed the Panthers to gain 413 total yards in the Wild-Card game. It was the first time this season the Saints won a game in which the opponent gained 400-plus yards in regulation. They are now 2-4 in games in which they allowed at least 400 yards this year, including their Week 1 loss to Minnesota.
The Vikings allowed teams to convert just 25.3% of their third downs this season, the best rate of any defense in the NFL. No other team allowed fewer than 31 percent conversion on third downs.
The game has been an escape for him ever since he started playing in middle school.
After one season, and one conference offensive player of the year award, Kamara transferred to Tennessee, finally back in the SEC. But he’d soon learn that something felt off, again. “F—ed up” is how Kamara describes the football experience in Knoxville. Kamara is clearly a dynamic force on the field, but a coach must scheme for his abilities. To fully actualize his impact on the field, an offense needs to adapt around him, create specific packages and plays that utilize his rare versatility and skill set. Tennessee chose not to do that.
