NFL Rivalries

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

I love a good rivalry.  Being that I’m a Michigan fan, and Kate’s a Buckeye fan, you know we go back and forth all the time. (Make sure you check in on us the last week of November.)

Lisa and I go back and forth about fantasy football (Yes, that’s me, your TWO-time OTFB Fantasy Football Champ)

I like to give Lucy a hard time about the Packers, and sometimes I give Wanda a hard time about the Bears.

Wrapping up the draft for the AFC and NFC South

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

This week I’ll be looking at the AFC and NFC South and how they did with their drafts.  I’ll ask 3 questions about each team.  Did they address their biggest need? Who will have the biggest impact? What could 2019 look like?

Let’s start with the Indianapolis Colts. After having a pretty strong offensive line, quarterback Andrew Luck, and Pro Bowl tight end Eric Ebron, the Colts focused on defense.  7 of their 10 picks were defensive.

Who could have the biggest impact? Former Michigan State safety Khari Willis.  He worked hard and was an impact player.  I think he’ll fit in nicely.  2019 for the Colts?  If their defense lives up to its potential, it could be tough sledding for the rest of the AFC South.

The hype of the 2019 NFL schedule release

Kate Arhar
Senior Sports Editor

By Kate Arhar // @Clvlndk8

I don’t believe any entity in sports knows how to create hype for seemingly innocuous events quite like the NFL.

This week they released the 2019 schedules in prime time. Social media was on fire with love/hate from each fanbase. And some teams spared no expense on video excellence in sharing their schedule with everyone.

Perhaps it’s just because so many teams don’t have a first-round pick in next week’s draft – Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, New Orleans – or maybe fans are just so hungry or anything football related, but the excitement surrounding this year’s reveal was amazing.

Checking in on the quarterbacks in the NFC South

Sonja Greenfield, OTFB Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //  @Mom23RN

I’ve hit the NFC North and NFC East.  This week, I head down to the durrty south.

These quarterbacks are about as stable as they get, outside of Tampa Bay, and even that’s not that truly unstable.   Despite quarterback Jameis Winston‘s issues, he’s still in the mix.

So, lets look at Winston, Matt Ryan, Drew Brees, and Cam Newton and ask the question, “What will 2019 look like for these quarterbacks?”

Since I’ve mentioned Winston, let’s start with Tampa Bay.

Atlanta Falcons: 5 Quick Questions

Kate Arhar
Cleveland Browns Reporter

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8 

Any team that goes up against the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl immediately gains a ton of fans. The Atlanta Falcons are one such team. After leading for most of Super Bowl LI back in 2017, the Falcons lost in gut-wrenching fashion – at least most of us were wrenched.

But last season they seemed to suffer from some sort of Super Bowl Hangover. Will 2018 be the season they bounce back?

I recently met a huge Falcons fan on twitter, so I asked Angela Spencer // @AngieSpencer28 five questions and got her thoughts regarding the upcoming season…

Still not over the win

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth

Eagles 15 – Falcons 10

What. A. Game! I admit I shed a few tears out of sheer relief after that game.  It was such an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. 

Not to be a negative Nancy, but I have to point out the obvious.  Playing like he did the first half, quarterback Nick Foles, will not be able to get away with that against the Minnesota Vikings. Luckily, the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense came through and it resulted in a win.

Philadelphia Eagles vs Atlanta Falcons – Preview

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth

NFL Playoffs – NFC Divisional Round

I’m sure by now everyone has heard about how the Philadelphia Eagles are the first number one seed to have a higher probability to lose to a number six seed. In this case, the Atlanta Falcons.

There have been so many stats all week about this particular game, that I have toned down my social media usage by a ton because I didn’t want to hear any negativity. I personally don’t like the statistics these sports analysts come up with because most of them are useless, and as I always say “rules are meant to be broken”. Except, in this case, statistics are meant to be broken.
