No Luck, No Problem

If the Indianapolis Colts still had Andrew Luck as their quarterback, I would have given them a chance to win this game against Kansas City. I’m not saying they would have won, but they would have a chance. Continue reading

NFC East

4. Washington Redskins

If there’s no balance on offense, eventually opponents will figure out how to stop Kirk Cousins. Continue reading
