Not many football fans could’ve expected what transpired in Miami on Sunday afternoon.
It’s been a long wait, but the beginning of the NFL season has finally arrived.
At some point they will take a moment to acknowledge the celebration taking place around them. Pete Carroll and his team will step back from an offseason focused on forgetting what happened in 2013 and for a brief second appreciate the festivities commemorating Seattle’s first Super Bowl title.
The Denver Broncos will be without Wes Welker for the first four games of the season after the NFL said the receiver violated the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
Almost a week after the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys battled each other in the third “dress rehearsal” preseason game, the NFL has passed judgments on a couple of infractions made by Dallas players.
Let’s take a look at the five best teams in the NFL heading into the 2014 season.
As the NFL continues to march towards the regular season, fantasy football players across the globe are preparing for their respective drafts. Plenty of things can happen throughout the course of a season that require roster moves being made, but having a good draft can springboard any team to a fantasy championship.
The NFL regular season is getting closer by the day as teams are now finished with their respective training camps and preparing for the all-important third preseason game. Fans are very lucky these days because every single preseason game is made available to them, whether it be online or on television. That gives fantasy football players the opportunity to scout everyone and anyone that they may consider drafting.
So it is with my jaded view of the world that I address the Ben Roethlisberger – Emmanuel Sanders feud. Sanders said that his new quarterback, Peyton Manning, is a much better leader than his old quarterback, Big Ben. And thus the verbal jousting began, feathers flexed, talons out.
NFL training camps are beginning to wrap up as teams continue making their way through the preseason. It’s a time for players and coaches to sharpen their skills in preparation for the upcoming season. It’s also a time for fans to keep track of which players they may want to draft in their fantasy football leagues and which players they want to avoid.
