When Tom Brady left the New England Patriots to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there was, of course, the expectation that the undoubted quality he possesses, being arguably the best quarterback in the history of the game, would help the franchise push for a first postseason outing in 12 seasons but clearly, the veteran has exceeded those initial goals.

If Fanduel’s NBA daily fantasy sports were around back in the 1970s, we all could have made a lot of money by placing bets with every team member in the Los Angeles Lakers.

Although this game is well known by Laker fans, what other massive wins have the Lakers created? 1.

The quarterback position is easily the most important position in the league today.  2015 was the last time a team won the Super Bowl with bad quarterback play, but they still had Payton Manning.  Doug Flutie talked about his time with the Patriots and what his “perfect quarterback” is, so I will be doing the same.

If anyone could predict the form of a team at the beginning of the season, you’d swear it was the former Harvard economist and current quarterback for the Washington Football Team- Ryan Fitzpatrick. As an economist, and on-field talent, he’s one of the most likely exponents of the game to be able to detect patterns and see some sort of logical progression or regression where the rest of us can’t see anything at all.  But as he said, the one thing that he’s learned the most since suiting up for the NFL is that you always have to expect the…

Winners Mason Crosby You might be wondering “how can a guy who only scored three points be a winner?”  Well, that’s because those three points were the only ones they scored all game.  Crosby made his one and only attempt and that was good enough to make the list. Davante Adams Davante Adams finished with five receptions for 56 yards.  Although that is below expectations for him, that is the best offensive…
