On Saturday, the Miami Dolphins became the first NFL team to fill their head coaching vacancy this offseason. The team officially named Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase as the 12th head coach in franchise history.
This time last season, the writing was on the wall for Rex Ryan: he wouldn't be returning as the head coach of the New York Jets in 2015. His replacement, former Arizona Cardinals’ defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, had been working his way up the coaching ladder for nearly two decades before signing on to lead the Jets last January.
The New England Patriots need one more win to secure home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs and they'll have to do it against a 5-10 Miami Dolphins team that could be without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Thanksgiving Day was just the appetizer for Week 12 NFL and fantasy action. For the first time since Week 3 all 32 teams are in action, which means we still have 13 games to go between Sunday and Monday.
While there are plenty of things to be thankful for, one of them for football (and fantasy) fans is three games on Thanksgiving Day! And speaking of these three, oh-so-tasty matchups, what is a fantasy owner to do?
Is it just me or is the NFL and fantasy season flying by? Can you believe that it’s Thanksgiving already? The really good news is that since we are now in Week 12, every team has had their bye. So that means from here on out we have a full schedule of all 32 teams playing.
This past offseason, the Miami Dolphins made a number of additions that had their fan base optimistic for the 2015 season. The club signed Ndamukong Suh to a six-year, $114 million contract and many people expected that the Dolphins would have one of the best defenses in the NFL, but that hasn’t been the case.
The AFC East title is already all but out of reach for Buffalo and the Jets as they convene in north Jersey — those Patriots look pretty good — but thanks to the NFL’s muddled middle of the road, a win by either team Thursday night could have a significant impact on the wild card race.
