San Francisco 49ers
The Broncos provided plenty of highlight-reel plays en route to 12 wins this season. Here are the five best.
Add former Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan to the list of Buffalo Bills coaching candidates.
New England and Baltimore are developing an impressive postseason rivalry.
While the rest of the Denver Broncos are unwinding, offensive coordinator Adam Gase will be participating in the NFL’s version of speed dating.
The Green Bay Packers do not have many holes in their game as they enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. However, one is their blocking in the kicking game. They allowed more combined blocked field goals, extra point attempts and punts than they had in the previous five seasons combined.
New England’s star quarterback has given his team a little more flexibility in spending.
The Minnesota Vikings have more confidence and optimism heading into this offseason than they did a year ago. They have two of the most important pieces in place in head coach Mike Zimmer and Teddy Bridgewater. Also, they improved in several areas from the past season. The Vikings have 12 free agents this offseason, but just one opening day starter.
As the 49ers look back on this season, it will not be positive. The team almost had a losing record, and missed the playoffs after 3 straight NFC Championship games. However, the teams awful season has to do with injuries than anything else, and a problem that shouldn’t haunt them next season.
New England’s offensive coordinator says he’s happy where he is, but at least one NFL team is seriously interested in interviewing him.
Peyton Manning confirmed last week he plans to return to Denver in 2015. It might just be without the man who’s in his earhole every Sunday.
