Redskins Blow Opportunity, Postseason In Jeopardy After 38-14 Loss

All the momentum generated from the Thanksgiving Day win over the New York Giants fizzled as Washington failed to rise to the occasion and lost 38-14 to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night. The loss all but eliminates the Redskins from the postseason. Sitting at 5-7, head coach Jay Gruden and company would need to win out and still get some help in order to qualify for the playoffs.

The win was the first for the Cowboys since losing star running back Ezekiel Elliott to a six-game suspension. Quarterback Dak Prescott, who had been in a serious funk over the last several weeks, finally got himself right. Prescott didn’t have great numbers – 11-for-22 for 102 yards – but he …

Manny Wilkins would have a solid game for Arizona State, completing 24/39 passes for 347 yards and a touchdown pass to N’Keal Harry. Wilkins also added two rushing touchdowns on 35 yards rushing.

The Oregon Ducks struggled to contain the SunDevil Wide …

Will Anyone Beat the New England Patriots?

Will Anyone Beat the New England Patriots?

It is no secret the Patriots aren’t on my list of favorite teams, in fact, they are somewhere near the bottom. Still, being a blogger and an objective sports fan, I must give credit where credit is due.

Let’s face it, even when the Patriots are not the best team on paper or the favorite going into the game, teams are intimidated to play the Patriots. No, they won’t admit it. In fact, most teams will do the opposite, they will run their mouth and guarantee a win. Once they take the field, all bets are off. We have bore witness to it time and time again. Most recently in last year’s SuperBowl. …
