With the 2020 NFL Draft and free agency just around the corner, PFF's Eric Eager takes a look at what constitutes a “true pass set” -- a set of play features that give us the most stable and predictive player evaluation.
Got to look your best, because two teams will go to the Super Bowl today. Maybe it's a fur coat like Derrick Henry's or pulling up to the house like the Fresh Prince. Here are the best looks of the day.
LaFleur was best man in his wedding. Saleh helped him get his start in the NFL. Now LaFleur, the Packers' offensive playcaller, will have to beat Saleh, the 49ers' defensive coordinator, to get to the Super Bowl.
Tyreek Hill has scored again. The Chiefs receiver caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes with 4:03 remaining in the first half. It has cut the Titans’ lead to 17-14. Hill scored his first touchdown on a flip from Mahomes in the backfield that Hill ran 8 yards to the end zone. It counted […]
You’d think after Dee Ford a year ago, the Chiefs would be a bit more mindful of penalties in the playoffs. But they continue to shoot themselves in the foot, as they’re falling in a hole against the Titans because of it. The Titans just went up 17-7, thanks to a touchdown pass to backup […]
Ryan Tannehill attempted 15 passes and threw for 72 yards against the Patriots in the wild-card round. He attempted 14 passes and threw for 88 yards against the Ravens in the divisional round. A lot was made of the Titans becoming the first team with back-to-back playoff wins with fewer than 100 yards passing since […]
It looked like a run but counted as a catch-and-run. Whatever it was, just call it a touchdown. The Chiefs got on the scoreboard with a 8-yard scoring play by Tyreek Hill with 46 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Patrick Mahomes flipped the ball forward to Hill on the jet sweep, and the receiver […]
On fourth-and-2, the Titans took Derrick Henry off the field. In the shadow of the goal line, they didn’t risk that. Henry just plowed in for a 4-yard touchdown run, giving the Titans a quick 10-0 lead over the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. It was a fortuitous drive for the Titans, which included […]
The Titans have had a penchant for scoring red zone touchdowns since Ryan Tannehill became their starting quarterback. They settled for a field goal on their opening drive Sunday after reaching the Kansas City 12-yard line, but it has the Titans in the early lead. The Titans had scored 12 consecutive touchdowns on red zone […]
The Cowboys didn’t wait to hire a tight ends coach before Jason Witten made a decision about his future, even though he said he eventually wanted to coach. Now, Witten may find a spot other than Dallas to pursue his trade. According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Witten hasn’t ruled out playing again next season, […]
Soon-to-be free agent quarterback Philip Rivers often talks about the importance of spending time with his wife and nine children. When the Chargers moved from San Diego to Los Angeles, Rivers and his family stayed put, and he made the long commute to the team facility each day because he thought it was important for […]
There was a report last week that the Browns would hire either Joe Woods or Steve Wilks as their defensive coordinator. If that one was accurate, the choice has been made. According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Wilks has been informed he won’t be retained by the team under new coach […]
Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones will give it a go today. Despite reports that the Chiefs didn’t think Jones would be able to play because of a calf injury, Jones is active today. That’s a big boost for Kansas City, as Jones led the team in sacks during the regular season. Also active today is […]
Last week, the 49ers’ front four faced an immobile obelisk who couldn’t even begin to escape them. This week, they’re facing a 36-year-old who is far more spry than granny. One of the things that became obvious when watching the Week 12 game between the Packers and 49ers is that Aaron Rodgers can outrun and […]
The Giants have no place for him as a starter, and he’s not interested in being a backup. Unless he’s interested in changing teams (and unless a team is interested in signing him to be its starter), Eli Manning‘s playing career undoubtedly is over. Paul Schwartz of the New York Post connects the fairly obvious […]
The 1974 class of Steelers rookies already was extremely impressive. It’s now even more impressive, with the addition of safety Donnie Shell to the Hall of Fame. Shell becomes the fifth Hall of Famer who arrived in Pittsburgh that year, joining receiver Lynn Swann (first round), linebacker Jack Lambert (second round), receiver John Stallworth (fourth […]
Football coaches John and Jim Harbaugh routinely recite a motto coined decades ago by their football-coaching father, Jack: “Who’s got it better than us? Nobody!” Brand-new football coach Kevin Stefanski has a very different family motto: “Pressure? Get a dog if you have pressure.” As former Net G.M. Ed Stefanski explains it to Marla Ridenour […]
The Browns have made an addition to their offensive coaching staff. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that they have hired former Dolphins offensive coordinator Chad O’Shea. O’Shea spent last season running the offense in Miami, but was dispatched by the team at the end of the regular season. O’Shea will not have the same […]
When the Dolphins traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Titans in March, Tannehill slashed his base pay from $18.75 million to $7 million, with the opportunity to earn more than $5 million in incentives. He has unlocked most of that cash. But he’ll get even more than that, soon. Via Ian Rapoport of the NFL, […]
Bill Davis Sr., a former football coach and NFL team executive who spent more than a decade with the Dolphins, Browns, and Eagles, died Saturday in Florida. He was 81. Davis, a two-way quarterback and defensive back at Mount Union, got into coaching five years after his college career ended. Within a few years, he […]
Former Washington head coach Jay Gruden said early this month that he hoped to interview for head coaching vacancies with other teams, but this year’s game of musical chairs is over and Gruden never got asked to take part in the festivities. It appears he’s set his eyes on a slightly lower goal. Mike Garafolo […]
Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock has done some end of the season housekeeping in interviews over the last few days, including a look back on the disastrous move to trade for Antonio Brown and what the offseason may look like now that they will be playing home games in Las Vegas. Mayock also discussed the […]
Ten weeks ago, the Chiefs and Titans met, in Week 10. Tennessee won at home, 35-32. The Chiefs could have, and arguably should have, prevailed. Derrick Henry got his yards for the Titans, 188 of them. Patrick Mahomes got his yards for the Chiefs, 446 of them. But it was Mahomes’ first game back from […]
