Philadelphia has the #1-ranked special teams unit by DVOA, so I wrote about that and their improvement there over last year for this week's Sunday Night Football column for NBC Sports.

My pre-draft analysis of the Cardinals’ new back from the 2013 RSP and a play-by-play breakdown of Williams and Marion Grice from Sunday’s Chiefs’ game.

The Brian Hoyer era in Cleveland is over. The Cleveland Browns announced today that Johnny Manziel, the 22nd overall pick in this year's draft, will start at quarterback for the rest of the season.
The Browns are 7-6, just 1 game out of a wild card spot and 1 1/2 games out of the division lead with three games to go. They host Cincinnati this weekend, then finish on the road against Carolina and Baltimore.
By DYAR, Hoyer has been below replacement level for four games in a row, and six times in the last eight games. Manziel's bar for success has been set awfully low.

Cam Newton was injured in a major car accident in Charlotte today as his truck crashed into another automobile near I-277 and flipped over. UPDATE: The Panthers say Newton is in fair condition and was taken to the hospital as a precaution more than anything else. That's nice to hear.

Alan Siegel talks to a number of late-80s Rams about the night Flipper Anderson set the all-time NFL record with 336 receiving yards. It still has never been surpassed.

Peter King ponders the MVP candidacy of J.J. Watt., and also runs down the Looney Tunes NFC South race, the league's hottest head coaching candidate, and the competition for the league's first overall draft choice (which King says will be Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota).

Season-ending injuries for Arizona's top rusher, Miami's top safety, Chicago's top receiver, and San Diego's top punter.

My annual Santa Claus rant, plus musings on Salt 'n' Pepa and the College Football Selection Spectacular. Also, lots of NFL.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
