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.
Aaron Rodgers, while clearly disappointed after a 37-20 NFC Championship loss to the 49ers, projected optimism after the gap between his first and potential second Super Bowl widened by yet another year.
With journeyman running back Raheem Mostert putting together one of the most dynamic rushing performances in playoff history, the Niners throttled the Packers for the second time this season to earn a berth in the Super Bowl.
After failing to stick to the same formula against the Chiefs on Sunday that propelled the Titans to playoff wins in Baltimore and New England, star back Derrick Henry voiced disappointment in the outcome and said "he could have done more for the team."
"Who's got a résumé like Andy? The wins and the coaching tree? No one." The Chiefs coach, on the brink of his second Super Bowl appearance, has also accumulated a treasure trove of stories from across the football landscape.
Reminiscent of Ole Miss' Elijah Moore, and Odell Beckham Jr., who did it as a member of the Giants, Kansas City receiver Tyreek Hill dropped to his knees and pretended to urinate like a dog on the field before a memorable performance in the Chief's' win.
Got to look your best, because two teams will go to the Super Bowl today. Maybe it's a Reggie White throwback jersey, 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.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is far closer to the end of his career than the beginning of it, and he seemed to be keenly aware of his football mortality last weekend, when the Packers advanced to what became his fourth career NFC Championship. But even that he’s now 1-3 in the game that has a […]
Richard Sherman finds motivation in the haters, even when there aren’t any. Tonight, there’s at least one. Future Hall of Fame cornerback Darrelle Revis took to Twitter to accuse Sherman of having “[f]ear of getting beat in man to man coverage.” “Every snap every play,” Revis said. “The fact that he doesn’t travel as a cornerback […]
The 49ers dominated on Sunday night. Las Vegas thinks that won’t be the case in Miami two weeks from now. The Chiefs have been installed as the early favorite for Super Bowl LIV, with the line starting at minus-1 and already moving to minus-1.5. There’s still two weeks for this one to move some more. […]
Running back Derrick Henry put up huge numbers in the Titans’ first two playoff games, but he didn’t find as much success on Sunday as the Chiefs brought an end to Tennessee’s season with a 35-24 win. That left Henry teary-eyed and it shifted attention from how well the 2019 rushing champion has been playing […]
The 49ers are going to the Super Bowl for the seventh time in franchise history. Raheem Mostert scored four touchdowns and the 49ers defense shut out the Packers through the first half en route to a 37-20 win that made them this season’s NFC champions. They will go on to face the Chiefs in Super […]
The Packers still have a lot of work to do, but they’ve gotten themselves back onto the radar screen in the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship Game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers hit rookie tight end Jace Sternberger for an eight-yard touchdown with just over eight minutes left in the game to cut the 49ers’ lead […]
The 49ers and Packers have each ruled a player out due to injuries suffered in the first half of Sunday’s NFC Championship Game. 49ers running back Tevin Coleman was called questionable after being carted off the field with a right shoulder injury early in Sunday’s game. Coleman has since been downgraded to out, although Raheem […]
As if it wasn’t obvious before Sunday, the Texans made it even more clear: Bill O’Brien wields the power in the franchise. The Texans fired senior vice president of football administration Chris Olsen, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Olsen negotiated contracts for the Texans, making him responsible for some of the largest deals […]
The Chiefs are going to the Super Bowl and that means Andy Reid will get his second chance at adding a Super Bowl ring to the top his already impressive coaching record. Reid wasn’t interested in talking about what a Super Bowl would mean for him and his legacy as an NFL head coach in […]
We’ve already seen one massive comeback this postseason, so nothing will be written in ink just yet but it certainly feels like Sunday’s NFC Championship Game will end with the 49ers celebrating on their home field. Emmanuel Moseley intercepted Aaron Rodgers with a minute left to go in the first half and Raheem Mostert cruised […]
The second 49ers-Packers game of this season is starting to look a lot like the first one. Raheem Mostert ran nine yards for his second touchdown of the game and the 49ers lead the Packers 17-0 with just over nine minutes to play in the first half. The 49ers beat the Packers 37-8 in a Week […]
Chiefs pass-rusher Frank Clark tempted fate. But then he and his teammates backed it up. After providing not just material, but the whole bulletin board by saying Titans running back Derrick Henry was “not hard to hit” last week, the Chiefs responded by limiting Henry to 69 yards on 19 carries. “‘Cause we’re the best […]
The 49ers are out to a 7-0 lead over the Packers in the NFC Championship Game. Running back Raheem Mostert sprinted untouched for a 36-yard touchdown with just over nine minutes off the clock in the first quarter of Sunday’s game. Mostert had 47 rushing yards overall on the drive after Tevin Coleman opened the […]
NFL Media named Jaguars rookie edge rusher Josh Allen as a Pro Bowl snub when the AFC all-star was announced in December. Allen no longer is snubbed. The Jaguars announced Sunday that Allen and receiver D.J. Chark are headed to the Pro Bowl. Allen becomes the first rookie in franchise history to make the Pro […]
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes ran for 53 yards and a touchdown in today’s win over the Titans, and the frustrating part of that for Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel was that he expected Mahomes to try to make plays with his legs. Asked after the game if he was surprised by Mahomes running, Vrabel answered, “No. […]
Tom Brady isn’t playing in the AFC Title game for the first time since January 2011 and that leaves him time to field questions about his impending free agency. Brady did an interview with Jim Gray of Westwood One radio that aired on Sunday and he was asked about the possibility of leaving the Patriots […]
The Chiefs played in two of the first four Super Bowls. They won Super Bowl IV to close out the 1969 season. They had not been back since. They are going back now. The Chiefs dominated the Titans after a slow start, winning 35-24 to conquer the AFC title. They will play the winner of […]
The celebration is on in Kansas City. The Chiefs are 7:33 from the Super Bowl, now leading 35-17. Kansas City has dominated since falling behind 17-7, scoring 28 unanswered points. Their latest touchdown, which almost certainly has iced the game, came on a 60-yard pass from Patrick Mahomes to Sammy Watkins with 7:33 remaining. The […]
Neither team scored in the third quarter, but the Chiefs didn’t waste any time in increasing their lead in the fourth quarter. Damien Williams scored on a 3-yard touchdown run only 10 seconds into the fourth quarter. The Chiefs have built a 28-17 lead after falling behind 17-7. Their 13-play, 73-yard touchdown drive, which ate […]
The Packers made punter JK Scott a Saturday addition to their injury report, but they won’t have to worry about figuring out how to replace him against the 49ers. Scott was listed as questionable because of an illness, but he was not one of the seven players declared inactive by the Packers on Sunday afternoon. Fullback […]
