    At the beginning of the season, nobody would have predicted that the NFC East would emerge as one of the worst divisions in the NFL. Most predictors thought the fight for top would be between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, with the New York Giants as the dark horse […]

    Only three weeks left in the NFL season, and the playoff picture gets more into focus each week.

    It seems odd to see both the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies in the basement of the National League Eastern Division given both of their successes over the last twenty years, but all one has to do is look at where both teams finished at the end of last season […]
