Bryan, Andrew, and friends are back for another go-round of the Staff Playoff Draft. Chiefs and Saints abound, while Ravens and Eagles fail to take off. Can you beat them in the Best of the Rest challenge?
The Kansas City Chiefs finish the year on top of the Football Outsiders DVOA ratings, and rank among the best offenses we've ever tracked. On the flip side are the Arizona Cardinals, in distant last place as one of the worst offenses we've ever tracked. But there are also plenty of interesting stories in between.
The AFC North is decided in dramatic fashion. Are the Ravens built to come back in the playoffs, and did the Steelers just have their most disappointing season in franchise history? Also: a fun, but meaningless Dallas comeback, and our season review looks at which teams might regress in close games in 2019.
At last we reach the main event(s) of bowl season, including big matchups between high-profile teams such as Texas vs. Jake Fromm and Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Plus: Urban Meyer's last game as the head coach at Ohio State, and potentially another claimed national championship on the line when Central Florida takes on LSU in the Fiesta Bowl.
The 2018 regular season has ended, and the playoff field is set.
