There's so much football stuff over at ESPN.com that articles can get lost -- especially with the new redesign that actually has fewer links on the page than before -- so I wanted to point out this interesting piece out for anyone who missed it. It's a look at what all 32 teams would do if injuries forced them to go with an emergency quarterback. Some of the responses are obvious, as guys like Denard Robinson and Trey Burton were quarterbacks in college. Others are more surprising, guys who were high school quarterbacks such as Eric Weddle and Owen Daniels.

Bleak Novembers, dying embers, unmerciful disasters, and ne'er a balm in Gilead: the 2015 Ravens offense is desolate, but is it yet undaunted?

This week, SI's Peter King ponders Brock Osweiler's debut for Denver and what it means for the Broncos going forward; the middle-of-the-pack teams in the NFL, and which might be capable of a playoff upset; a strange call at the end of Cincinnati-Arizona; and possible offseason destinations for Colin Kaepernick.

The San Francisco 49ers have placed quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Injured Reserve, ending his season. The 28-year-old quarterback will have surgery next week on his non-throwing shoulder.
Kaepernick hurt his shoulder in Week 4, but started the next four games before taking a seat in Week 9. Don't blame Kaepernick's bad season on that injury, though. His DVOA from Weeks 1 to 4 was -38.6%; after that, it went up significantly, to -9.1%.

Speculating about Aaron Rodgers' love life for fun and profit. (Not really.)

In this week's piece for NBC Sports, I go into more detail on Joe Goodberry's insight that Andy Dalton performs much better against teams the Bengals have not faced recently. Potentially good news for a bounceback on Sunday night against the Cardinals, and potentially very bad news yet again in the postseason.

Here's another piece by English fan and statistician Joey Faulkner looking at the advantages home teams get when it comes to penalties -- and how those advantages tend to disappear later in games.

This week: a bad coach gets paid, then insulted; a bad quarterback gets optimistic; another bad quarterbcak gets a cunning plan; a bad play gets Matt Ryan irked; a bad play gets burned; and Jets and Raiders fans get drunk.
