Super Bowl 2018 prop bet: Coin toss results in the usual from the Patriots

Posted by in New England Patriots

We got one of the earliest Super Bowl prop bets out of the way with the opening coin toss. The Philadelphia Eagles called tails, but it came up heads. The New England Patriots elected to defer and will receive the ball to start the game. The Eagles will start the second half with the ball….


Von Miller stripped this chicken wing like it was a quarterback with a slow release

Posted by in New England Patriots

As good as Von Miller is at playing football, his ability to eat wings might be even more impressive. That’s saying something for a Super Bowl MVP. Miller was on Hot Ones, where he was being interviewed while eating different chicken wings with increasing levels of heat. But look at how clean this was: It…


Hosmer’s deal leaves Padres with overstuffed outfield

Posted by in New Orleans Saints

Now that San Diego’s first base position is in Eric Hosmer’s $144 million hands, it seems as if there are 144 million candidates for the one remaining starting spot in the Padres’ outfield. Wil Myers will move to one of the corner spots after playing first base the previous two seasons, manager Andy Green said,…


The best strategies for drafting closers

Posted by in Cincinnati Bengals

We’re still more than a month away from the start of the MLB season … so how do you approach drafting bullpen arms at this time of year? For the rest of the bunch, I’d play the follow the leader game. If someone picks Mark Melancon, I’ll grab Sam Dyson. If Jeurys Familia gets drafted,…


There have been some great Super Bowl halftime performances, but there have also been some awful Super Bowl halftime performances.

Posted by in New Orleans Saints

Here are the five worst Super Bowl halftime performances in the history of the big game. Cold Play’s Super Bowl 50 performance wasn’t terrible — it just underwhelmed and lacked spectacle. The band was collectively treated like a footnote and eventually dismissed as an opening act for Beyoncé, who had an electric performance with Bruno…


The Dolphins made a strong position stronger, taking Missouri DE Charles Harris in the first round and Ohio State LB Raekwon McMillan in the second.

Rams: With no first-round pick, they went with South Alabama TE Gerald Everett in the second. He could be a nice complement to returning TE Tyler Higbee. Rams coach Sean McVay loves utilizing the position (no team received more yards out of the tight end position than McVay’s Redskins last season). In his last two…


Earlier this month, Katie Sowers became just the second woman hired by an NFL team as a full-time coach.

The offensive assistant for the San Francisco 49ers made more history Tuesday, when she came out publicly as a lesbian in a report by Outsports, making her the first openly LGBT coach in league history. “No matter what you do in life, one of the most important things is to be true to who you…


They currently combine for just one top-50 win.

Losses by Arizona State, Iowa and Michigan State also helped the Wolfpack’s cause. Cal also benefited from that re-evaluation of those data points. The Bears went 1-1 on their Pac-12 swing through Los Angeles, but moved up two spots to No. 17 overall. Cal sports an RPI of 17 and overall and nonconference schedules rated…

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told The Post in an email that 98 percent of all available tickets have been sold and that sales are down one percent, a figure that doesn’t include the Los Angeles Chargers or Rams, which have significantly reduced seating capacity at their stadiums. Trump’s Tuesday tweet continues a theme he has…


The Eagles were 7-9 last season under Wentz and rookie head coach Doug Pederson.

Posted by in New Orleans Saints

He’s PFF’s 27th-graded quarterback, 32nd in passing grade out of 38 qualifying passers. He needs his rushing skill to produce for fantasy. Well, this week, he and the Panthers face a Vikings defense that is PFF’s No. 9 team in run-defense grading, and has only allowed two quarterbacks (DeShone Kizer and Kirk Cousins) to score…
