Jets vs the No Fly Zone. Who’s left grounded?

Official Denver Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon // @ABroncoNole

As far as who the winner may be between the New York Jets and the Denver Broncos, I have no clue. Flip a coin. All I can say is, this Jets team is beatable.

On defense, NY is in the mid-range of everything, except they do have ten interceptions. Since our quarterback likes to throw to the other team, I’m guessing they will add to that total, the only question is, how many?

Cleveland Browns Hire GM: John Dorsey

By Kate Arhar aka Cleveland Kate // @ClvlndK8

Today has been full of news regarding the Cleveland Browns front office. Just as we were coming to grips with to the news that Executive VP Sashi Brown had been fired, just as we were revving up for all the great speculation talk, and just as we were making our cases to hire OUR favorite candidates, the Browns announce the new hire: John Dorsey.

And so it begins…. two years into the three-year rebuilding process, and a combined record of 1-27 over these two years, reports are flooding the market that the Cleveland Browns have fired Executive VP Sashi Brown.  After being featured in the Sports Business Daily “Forty Under 40” column just two years ago, and being touted as the “right move” by foxsports.com writer Mike Garafolo, high expectations for Brown were clearly not met and he’s out.

Denver’s Trip to Miami Left Them Swimming with the Fishes

Julie Dixon Official Denver Broncos Reporter

 

By Julie Dixon // @ABroncoNole 

New offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave drew up a game plan that was better than we’d seen in a while. It was aimed to take advantage of every weakness Miami has.

Unfortunately, our quarterback was bad; 1.8 QBR bad. Plus, the receivers didn’t help much. Our offensive line often gave quarterback Trevor Siemian time to throw, but the longer the game went on, the more Miami saw there was no deep threat, so they started rushing/blitzing often. 7 vs 5 isn’t going to end well.

Titans Win a Bruiser Against the Texans

Official Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen // @ksc47

Titans 24 – Texans 13

After being defeated 57-14 and humiliated by the Houston Texans in October, there was some talk about this game being a rematch or a revenge game.  I would say it was not an even rematch. 

The Texans had lost two of their brightest stars, rookie quarterback DeShaun Watson and defensive end JJ Watt to injuries.  I would say it wasn’t even a revenge game.  Just another divisional game that the Tennessee Titans had to win to keep hope alive to finally get into the playoffs.  Something that the team hasn’t done since 2008.  The Titans keep plodding along and getting unspectacular wins, but by gummies, they are getting wins.

Why Dolphins Football Means Family

Lisa
Official Reporter Miami Dolphins

 

By Lisa Johnson // @LJ1303

How many women can remember those special moments with their mothers growing up? Being able to join your mom shopping, or going to get your hair and nails done. My memories are quite the opposite. Mine consisted of Bob Griese, Larry Csonka, and Mercury Morris. When I was 4 yrs old I could name every starting player for the Miami Dolphins. Sundays were for football. Mom and I would get up, pack the truck, and off to the stadium we would go. We did this every Sunday for over 25 yrs.

Lisa and her Mom

Sadly, bad health caught up with her. She was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. I have to say, she never missed a beat even after the surgeries, chemo, and radiation. She always found ways to talk about the Dolphins, how the game went or the new stadium. Regardless of how hard the treatments were, she always wanted to know the score of the Dolphins game.

I always tell people I was born a Dolphins fan. I have learned about and studied this game since I could remember. I’ve been blessed these last couple years to follow my dream and officially report on the team my mom taught me to love.

After 5 years of battling cancer, my mom is now cancer free. We decided it was time. Time for her to see her favorite team and their beautiful new home. With the help of some very special people, Scott Stone, and Jason Jenkins, my mother had a perfect day.

Lisa’s Mom Watching Warmups

No words will ever be enough to say thank you. The Miami Dolphins organization is lucky to have such loyal and caring people who celebrate and care about the fans. Because of these two gentlemen, my mom was given the opportunity to attend pre-game activities on the field. This is something she has always dreamed of doing.

Every game I attend I think about my mom and those Sundays we spent together. Those are the memories I will forever cherish. But on Sunday, I couldn’t even begin to tell you the emotions I was feeling. Seeing her face as we walked onto that field, there are simply no words. She just stood there taking it all in. I always say “there’s always things bigger than the game” but in reality, this game is like family to me, and there is nothing more important than family!

Welcome home, Mom.

The Seahawks Play A Complete Game

By Shannon Sanchez // @ShannonSanchez3

Seahawks 24 – Eagles 10

This is arguably the most complete game that the Seahawks have played this year.  From the opening drive, the game seemed to go in favor of the Seahawks.  The offense was led by quarterback Russell Wilson who once again turned into a wizard.  He was scrambling his way out of would-be sacks and finding receivers like tight end Jimmy Graham for the 9th time in 8 games.

Eagles Are Taking It One Game At A Time

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaane Herrera //@rxnlzbth

Eagles- 10     Seahawks- 24

 

All week, I was anxious about this game. I knew it would be tough to play against Seattle in Seattle.  I just figured it would be more competitive, or at the very least a fun game to watch. As frustrating as it was, though, I’m okay with this loss.  Eagles needed to face a playoff caliber team; a team who was desperate for a win, in order to get experience in that type of environment.

Week 13 Detroit Lions Pride Report

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Ravens 44 – Lions 20

 

The Lions were facing an opponent this week that on paper, appeared pretty evenly matched.  Both teams are having mediocre seasons so far.  Each team has playoff aspirations.  Each team has had impressive wins but also had some not so impressive losses.  They also had the same record going into this game.  In order for the Lions to keep their playoff hopes alive, winning this game was paramount.
