    Tale Of The Tape: Miami Dolphins At Buffalo Bills

    The Dolphins are certainly one of the under-the-radar teams in the NFL, and few people give them serious consideration because they have made little progress over the years and head coach Joe Philbin is not an inspirational leader.

    Tale Of The Tape: New England Patriots At Miami Dolphins

    The Patriots go into the season with full confidence that they can go to the Super Bowl. The key to that is the combination of head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady.

    Tale Of The Tape: Football vs. Futbol

    With the World Cup still going strong and the NFL just weeks away from getting started it seemed like a fun idea to compare the two sports that share the same name…sort of. From the global “futbol” to the American “football” these sports are two of the most popular in their own right. As somewhat of a disclaimer I will add that this Tale of the Tape is being written by an American, though I am a big soccer fan. That being said, let’s start the debate.

    Tale Of The Tape: World Cup Vs. Olympics

    There are very few worldwide occurrences that captivate fans of every nation the way that the Olympics and World Cup have proven to do. When the time comes for either event you can bet that the majority of the world shifts their attention to these amazing month-long competitions. 2014 has been a great year for fans of the Olympics and the World Cup as both took place in the span of just a few months. With the World Cup still going strong and the Olympics fresh in the minds of fans across the globe, let’s see how they match up when placed side-by-side.
