Anthony Miller became the latest Chicago Bears wide receiver to fall victim to the instigating tactics of New Orleans Saints defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson.

The NFL’s 8K camera makes real life look like a video game

The NFL playoffs are not only home to the league’s best 12 14 teams, but also the best technology around (unless when it comes to deciding what is or isn’t a fumble, right Colts-Bills?).

2020 NFL season in review: What went wrong, what's next for eliminated playoff teams

The 2020 NFL playoffs began Saturday, which meant three more teams said goodbye to the 2020 NFL season. The Indianapolis Colts were the first to exit the stage, followed later in the day by the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Football Team.

Colts become first team in NFL playoff history to pull off this depressing feat after wild-card loss to Bills

The Indianapolis Colts made some NFL postseason history on Saturday, but it's definitely not the kind that any team ever wants to be making. During Indy's 27-24 loss to the Bills in the wild-card round, the Colts became the first team in NFL playoff history to lose after turning the ball over zero times AND totaling 450 or more yards of offense. Before Saturday, that exact situation had happened a total of 11 times ever and those teams had combined to go 11-0. The crazy part is that none of the other games were even particularly close as those 11 teams won by an average of 21.3 points.

Taylor Heinicke believes he proved he belongs in the NFL

Taylor Heinicke did not lead the Washington Football Team to a victory in last night’s playoff game, but he played far better than most people expected.

Afterward, Heinicke said he thinks he showed he has what it takes.
