Somehow, after so much fell apart amid Super Bowl expectations and the Indianapolis Colts were reduced to an 8–8 underachiever that missed the playoffs, the three men most responsible for the team’s fate returned even more resolute for 2016.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the most intriguing NFL teams to keep an eye on in 2016. Despite the team's 5-11 record a season ago, there's a lot of optimism in Jacksonville, mainly because of their offense led by quarterback Blake Bortles.
In late April, the Tennessee Titans drafted quarterback Marcus Mariota with the second pick in the NFL Draft. Ken Whisenhunt got to coach Mariota for less than half of a season, as he was shown the door after the team started 1-6.
Prepare yourselves, football fans. Sunday could get ugly. Not ugly in the sense that the game between the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts will be a battle of two unstoppable forces, but ugly in the fact that it could be a repulsive brand of football between two marginal teams.
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. Which also means we finally have true position rankings.
Tennessee interim head coach Mike Mularkey leads his 2-7 Titans to the place where his last head coaching venture ended, Jacksonville. Things started out well enough for the Titans in 2015, starting with the 42-14 stomping of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in which rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota had a record day. After that, nothing went right.
