Super Bowl LIII turned into a nightmare scenario. The New England Patriots won, again, and it was one of the most boring Super Bowl games ever played. I do have an appreciation of outstanding defense and both defenses were dominant, but offense and points are entertaining, and this game probably...

Rookie running back Sony Michel's two-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter proved to be the game-winning score and, coincidentally, the only touchdown scored in the New England Patriots' 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, Georgia. The win marked the sixth time...

Nickell Robey-Coleman on Sunday reminded me of Trey Teague. Not because I was in a game of "name a former Bill" that lasted for hours until Teague was mentioned, although I wouldn't be surprised (or insulted) if you thought that. Instead, it's a Buffalo Bills play from 2004 -- a play that...

​The two NFL playoff games on Sunday were fantastic. After a so-so set of Wild Card and Divisional Round games, the Championship Round games were edge-of-the-seat experiences, even if you didn't have a strong rooting interest. Having said that, football fans across the country will be spending...

For my final game day writing of the season, I’m going with the running commentary. Dig in and enjoy: 12:15 - Hug and kiss my wife, whisper softly in her ear, “I think the Bills are going to win today.” She pushes me away, alarmed. ‘Are you ok? They’re playing the Patriots, right?” I told her I...
