MIKE TANIER has been writing Football Outsiders Almanac chapters for so long that he feels like Ringo making yet another special guest appearance during a Paul McCartney show. Mike recently wrapped up a six-year run as the NFL Lead Columnist for Bleacher Report; his popular Monday Morning Digest feature will presumably be replaced by TikTok videos, cartoon GIFs of Lamar Jackson, and long apologies. A father of two with almost 20 years of experience as an NFL writer, Mike is proof positive that we all get by with a little help from our friends. You can find his work at Fansided.com, Pro Football Network, the New York Times, and here at Football Outsiders.

Monday Morning Digest: Cowboys in Crisis Mode, Patriots in Peak Form

In this week's Digest ...

  • The Patriots give Tom Brady a special teams boost.
  • The Saints treat the Bills the way a garbage disposal treats a moldy meatball.
  • The Jaguars try to cough up a big game in the fourth quarter but cannot out-choke the Chargers.
  • The Steelers limbo even lower than usual to play down to another opponent.
  • Another fluky touchback robs the Bears and the NFL of a little bit more fun and fairness.
  • Strip-Sack Savage rides again for the Texans
  • ...and much more.
