By Matt Josephs, 1 month 3 days ago
Adrian Peterson returns after a year off for the Vikings. Minnesota is widely considered to be a sleeper, but does that mean this will have enough to catch up to Green Bay and Detroit? Chicago, meanwhile, turns to John Fox to try and clean things up after a five-win season in 2014. In the coming years, this will be a three-team race with the Vikes moving into contention. Much like I did...

By The Sports Network, 2 months 1 week ago
(SportsNetwork.com) - The next time you're playing word association, altruism probably isn't the noun that is going to be linked with the NFL, especially after a calendar year in which so many off-the-field incidents stained the reputation of the league. The current narrative coming from the national media is that "The Shield" has been tarnished, but that's hyperbole.

By The Sports Network, 3 months 5 days ago
(SportsNetwork.com) - There are slippery slopes and then there are avalanches. You can never say never in a league based solely on results, but it looks as if Ray McDonald has effectively ended his NFL career due to his abhorrent off- the-field behavior. That's a just outcome, but it's not enough for some. USA Today columnist Nancy Armour has advocated the Chicago Bears also should...
