It's pretty much the same as Mandatory Monday, folks. I kick off this week with a count of the holding and contact penalties, with five-year totals to show that, yes, there were a few more on Thursday and Sunday.
Then, it's off to the Gary Kubiak jokes.

Apologies, but due to an error in the re-written playoff odds program, the playoff odds we originally ran with our DVOA projections on Wednesday were slightly incorrect. (The NFC was mistakenly given home-field advantage in the Super Bowl; the three London games were also not coded as neutral-site games.) We have corrected these issues, added the Green Bay-Seattle game as final, and re-run the playoff odds for you to enjoy.

Some plays are like Rorschach inkblots because there’s no definitive answer to why they unfold the way they do. If you were a coach, which issue with this play involving Michigan star Devin Funchess do you think has the highest impact on its outcome? You vote.

I'll be writing a weekly column for NBC Sports this year taking a statistical look at the Sunday Night Football matchup. After the Colts got to him four times in last year's game, the first one is on Peyton Manning's ability to avoid sacks.
