The Dallas Cowboys head into the NFL wild card playoffs against the number one rush defense in the nation. However, the Detroit Lions just learned their best defensive player, Ndamukong Suh, has been suspended.
The Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions prepare to play in the NFC wild card game. Here is a look at the Lions as they take on Dallas in the Cowboys first playoff berth in five years.
The Detroit Lions have to face the Dallas Cowboys and their excellent offense, perhaps without Ndamukong Suh.
In 2014, the New York Giants (6-10) committed over $116 million in free agent contracts in order to avoid a repeat of the 2013 season. Unfortunately, injuries derailed Big Blue’s season before it ever started, and the team continues to be a work-in-progress.
The Eagles went from being able to wrap up a second straight NFC East crown at home to three weeks later being locked out of the postseason fun. The Eagles won 10 games, but will have nothing more to show for it. It never should have come to this.
The New York Giants (6-10) hoped to end their season on a winning note, as much as the Philadelphia Eagles (10-6) wanted to end a three-game losing streak. The Birds got a blocked punt for a touchdown and withstood an Odell Beckham onslaught to beat Big Blue 34-26 at MetLife Stadium.
When the New York Giants (6-9) and Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) met the first time this season, they were two teams going in opposite directions. They still are, but the roles have been reversed. The Giants are looking to end their campaign on a four-game winning streak, while the Eagles are limping to the finish line, hoping to snap a three-game losing streak.
Antrel Rolle has been a leader for the New York Giants almost since the time he was signed as a free agent after being released by the Arizona Cardinals in 2010. As the veteran safety pines for a return to the Big Apple, Big Blue must make sure that an extended stay in New York makes sense for them too.
No one expected that the season finale between the Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) and the New York Giants (6-9) would be a meaningless encounter for both teams. While the Giants have won three games in a row for the second time this season, the Eagles dropped out of playoff contention with their current three-game losing skid.
The St. Louis Rams (6-9) thought they could bully the New York Giants (6-9) and their rookie receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. When the dust settled, Beckham had two more touchdown catches, and the Rams came out on the wrong end of a 37-27 decision.
