Thanksgiving: Who are you thankful for from the Dolphins?

It's Thanksgiving. For whom are you thankful when it comes to the Dolphins? The Miami Dolphins are having a season that is returning hope to a fan base sick of mediocrity. As we enjoy Thanksgiving today, we ask you, for whom are you thankful from the Miami Dolphins? There are lots of ways to answer this question. Maybe you are most thankful that the Dolphins have quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who seems to be growing into the franchise quarterback the team needs. Maybe it's Cameron Wake, who has been demolishing opposing quarterbacks since he was coaxed to Miami from the Canadian Football...

Thanksgiving and the New England Patriots: A Look Back

Five times the New England Patriots have played a football game on Thanksgiving. Let's take a look at them. Thanksgiving, the one holiday that combines three of the best things in life: family, food and football. The latter, unfortunately, will take place without the Patriots this year, as they are currently preparing to face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. While the team is looking into the not too distant future, we take our time to look into the past. The Patriots have played the Thanksgiving Classic five times, and have won three of those games. Interestingly enough, they have played...

Thanksgiving Games Open Thread

Happy Thanksgiving! Turkey Day means three NFL games. It starts at 12:30 Eastern when the Lions play the Bears. At 4:30 Eastern the Cowboys and Eagles play in a huge game with first place in the NFC East on the line. The nightcap is at 8:30 Eastern as the Seahawks and the 49ers face off in another huge game.

Bills 38, Jets 13 All-22: anatomy of a blown coverage

How did Jets receiver Eric Decker find himself completely uncovered in the second quarter of the Bills' win over New York, in a moment that, had it gone better for New York, could have radically shifted that game's outcome? The Buffalo Bills controlled their 38-3 win over the New York Jets very well on Monday, but for about ten seconds at the end of the first half, it looked like they were about to make one of their patented mistakes and re-energize the Jets right before halftime. Fortunately for Buffalo, the wide-open Eric Decker wasn't able to pull in what could have been an easy...

Happy Thanksgiving

Enjoy your holiday everyone. Every year on the fourth Thursday of November Americans celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, partly in commemoration of the large harvest feast enjoyed by the Plymouth colonists in 1621, the year of their first New World harvest.  The colonists had a bumper crop that first year, and some of the local natives shared in the feast in what was a short-lived period of peace and good will among the very different populations.  The feast lasted three days and was shared among 90 Native Americans and 53 Plymouth colonists.  The holiday has been celebrated in America...

New York Jets: Darned If You Don't (Linebacker Edition)

The situation the Jets face at cornerback has residual effects across the rest of the defense. Because the Jets lack corners who can man up with quality receivers, they have to play more zone than Rex Ryan would probably like. This creates its own issues because the Jets don't have particularly adept zone defenders. This is evident at many spots in the lineup, and Monday against Buffalo it showed itself at the linebacker position. One problem you can run into playing zone coverage is ending up with a bad matchup, like a wide receiver against a linebacker. If you are playing man, a...

Bills vs. Browns, 2014 NFL Week 13: Donte Whitner taken to task

Donte Whitner is, to put it lightly, highly unpopular in Buffalo, chiefly for a series of troll jobs on the organization and especially its fans. On Wednesday, several Bills players - including Fred Jackson - responded. Donte Whitner, a professional troll who also happens to play safety for the Cleveland Browns, was the topic du jour with players in the Buffalo Bills' locker room on Wednesday. Two of his former teammates spoke honestly about how they think of Whitner, now more than three seasons removed from the end of his Bills career. Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller, and Aaron Williams all...

Boobie Dixon named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Boobie Dixon has done something in 2014 that no Buffalo Bills player has done since 1990: block two punts in a season. Buffalo Bills running back Anthony Dixon was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week on Wednesday for his efforts against the New York Jets on Monday night in Detroit. In the third quarter, with the Bills leading the Jets 17-3 and the Jets punting, Dixon walked a blocker back into the lap of punter Ryan Quigley, extended his left arm, and blocked the kick. The ball rolled into the end zone, where it rested long enough for teammate Manny Lawson to pounce on it for a...

Reasons for Optimism: Miami Dolphins vs New York Jets

Reasons for optimism for the Dolphins based on patterns of their 2014 season as Monday's game against the division rival Jets looms. The Miami Dolphins loss to the Denver Broncos last Sunday, a matchup of big brother versus kid brother who's growing up fast, was tough to swallow. While it's unfortunate that the Dolphins lost another game on late fourth quarter touchdown allowed by the defense, and this particular instance may have been the worst as Miami's defense allowed 22 fourth quarter points, there are plenty of reasons for optimism following the loss. Other than the fact that Miami...
