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.

Hey kids, B.S. Report! Bill Simmons and I talk about the upcoming season, including our picks for the top teams competing for the Super Bowl, the most likely unexpected Super Bowl contender (we're both on San Diego), and the most likely team to go through a "hell season" (Bill says San Francisco, I say Arizona).

It's time for the TENTH ANNUAL Football Outsiders Open Loser League competition. Yes, tenth. Kind of nutty. And we haven't changed the rules at all in all that time. Even though we probably should. We're lazy that way. Come pick your roster of bad (but not bad enough to get benched) players for the first half of 2014, with a shot at winning free fantasy projections for 2015. Let's see how many of you can do this without Trent Richardson on your team.

Hello old friends!
As you may have heard, there was a massive shakeup/purge at Sports on Earth back on August 4th. I was part of a skeleton crew retained by Major League Baseball Advanced Media after USA Today pulled out of our venture, but while I was thrilled to be given the chance to keep working, I fit in to the new reality about as well as a Yankees quarterback. It was obviously in my best interests to move on.

Mike and Tom try to figure out what kind of secret sauce Arizona is feeding the media to sit at the top of the power rankings and in the middle of our DVOA rankings.
