For this week's SNF column for NBC Sports, I took a look at Dez Bryant. DeMarco Murray is getting most of the publicity because he has the stats, but Dez is still really, really good.

For this week's NBC Sports column previewing Sunday Night Football, I use DVOA to help me look at some of the reasons behind (or in one case, not behind) New England's offensive improvement in their last five games.

In this week's Sunday Night Football column, I examine the decline in Brandon Marshall's DVOA. As the headline indicates, it's all about downfield throws.

This week's Sunday Night Football column for NBC Sports covers what happens the week after a quarterback has a big passing day like Ben Roethlisberger has. The short answer: a whole lot of regression to the mean.

For this week's SNF feature for NBC Sports, I wrote about the Green Bay Packer receiver leading the league in DYAR. Nope, it's Randall Cobb, not Jordy Nelson.

File this under "Huh?", "Really?" and "Stories I Would Not Have Believed Without Jay Glazer's Track Record."

For this week's SNF column, I look at Peyton Manning's touchdowns by distance. He's throwing more short TDs than he used to, and that was true late in his Indianapolis days as well as in Denver.

In this week's Sunday Night Football column, I look at the Eagles going from throwing less to throwing more and Nick Foles' deep ball struggles. Plenty of overthrows included.

The Bengals and Patriots rank fourth- and sixth-worst in the league in third down conversion percentage, so this week's NBC Sports column covers that and how third down conversion percentage varies by yards to go.

Per Jay Glazer, so I'm trusting this report after Sunday night's AP report that was quickly retracted. As Mike Sando's survey revealed, nobody actually has any idea how good a coach Allen has been given the situation in Oakland. Offensive line coach Tony Sparano will likely be the interim head coach, allowing both coordinators to keep their jobs. The question now becomes, will GM Reggie McKenzie be next on the chopping block?
