TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) – The Arizona Cardinals have hired Jen Welter to coach inside linebackers through their upcoming training camp and preseason. The Cardinals say Welter is believed to be the first woman to hold […]
The 2015 NFL preseason schedule has been officially announced. Preseason will kick off with the Pittsburgh Steelers facing off against the Minnesota Vikings in the Hall of Fame game. That game will take place on August […]
We’re back, it was a busy first segment hitting on all the sports stuff that went on while we were out. NFL, College Football, Jim Harbaugh and of course the Kings. It’s all here in […]
The Carolina Panthers have dealt with a whole host of injuries over the course of the season. Now, they’re in the postseason and looking at very few injuries for the Wild Card Weekend game against the Arizona Cardinals.
The Green Bay Packers do not have many holes in their game as they enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. However, one is their blocking in the kicking game. They allowed more combined blocked field goals, extra point attempts and punts than they had in the previous five seasons combined.
The Carolina Players were lucky to make the playoffs with a record of 7-8-1, but they won the NFC South and they are there. Now, if they defeat the Arizona Cardinals in the Wild Card round, then more than Thomas Davis will know what it’s like to notch a playoff victory as a Panther.
The Minnesota Vikings have more confidence and optimism heading into this offseason than they did a year ago. They have two of the most important pieces in place in head coach Mike Zimmer and Teddy Bridgewater. Also, they improved in several areas from the past season. The Vikings have 12 free agents this offseason, but just one opening day starter.
The Green Bay Packers do not have to play this Sunday. That is a good thing as quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be able to get some extra rest before the Packers begin their run toward the Super Bowl. They will host one of three teams in the Divisional Round. Their opponent will be determined by the outcome of the Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys game.
In the regular season finale the 49ers looked good. The offense showed up, the defense held strong, and the special teams chipped in as they beat a Cardinal team that entered the game with a chance to earn home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
There is still one thing for the 49ers to play for this season. Frank Gore is very close to another 1,000 yard season, which will not only put him in an elite group, but will help show that he is still one of the best backs in the NFL.
The 3-12 Oakland Raiders travel to Denver for their 2014 finale against the Broncos, and it’s probable the Broncos may not have much to play for, in terms of playoff seeding. But Denver will still want to win the game, and the Raiders haven’t been very good on the road this year at all—the Silver & Black is winless, in fact, away from the Coliseum.
