This week, I discuss the Bengals win over the New York Jets—specifically talking about the run defense. How did Cincinnati’s defensive front hold Le’Veon Bell to 32 yards? Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins played a part, but some of the younger defensive linemen were involved as well. The linebacker position has been a concern all season, but the weaknesses have seemed to be less obvious in recent weeks. How did they fare in this matchup? And...

Which Falcons have the most to prove over the final four games of the season?

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports These players are vying for larger roles next year or just a roster spot with the Falcons. If you look hard enough, there’s always something to be learned from Falcons fans. Not all of it even needs to be negative! Today, I wanted to look at a group of players who have something to prove in these final four games. They may need to prove they deserve a roster spot in 2020, that they deserved an expanded role next season, or that their already expanded role is one they deserve to keep, but any way you slice it there’s a lot they can do for themselves by...

All reports indicate that the Yankees are placing a priority on starting pitching this offseason, with one of the best free agent starting pitching classes in recent years. They must capitalize on this market to...
