Ed Reed Thinks Justin Beiber Will Doom Patriots

This weekend's Sunday Night Football match up pits the charging Chargers against the New England Patriots, in a battle with big implications on the AFC Wildcard race.

The game will likely be decided by the two quarterbacks - won by whichever picks apart the opposing defense best.

...Unless it's already been decided, as Showtime analyst Ed Reed jokingly suggests it may be, because who the Pats hung out with earlier this week.  Watch the discussion.

Are You OK With the Jets’ Monday Night Game Plan? [POLL]

In a passing league, with quarterbacks dropping back 40 or 50 times a game to take advantage of the NFL's new rules, the Jets attempted only 13 passes on Monday night.  They, instead, ran it 49 times - taking the ball out of Geno Smith's hand, abandoning the forward pass, and taking football back 70 years.

It didn't work.  The Jets lost to the Dolphins 16-13 and, when they were supposed to be evaluating Geno Smith, learned nothing about the second year QB.

Ryan Fitzpatrick’s Son Shows Off Math Skills

Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is smart.  In fact, he's probably too smart.  The former Bill played his college ball at Harvard - a prolific powerhouse for lawyers, but not NFL players.

As the signal caller showed on Sunday, though, he's not the only genius in the family.  After Houston's romp over the Titans, Fitzpatrick was joined at his press conference by his son, who showed off his crazy math skills.  Check out the video below.

Week 11 Celebrity Picks Results

Armen left the door open this week, with a poor 2-3 record, but neither Levack nor our celebrity picker, Will Brown, was able to bust it down.  Levack, like Armen, managed only two wins, while Coach Brown collected a better, but not good enough, three.

Armen's lead was diminished, but not in any real, serious way. Check out the full results below, including Armen and Levack's UAlbany basketball preview with Coach Will Brown.

Is Adrian Peterson’s Suspension Fair?

Earlier today, the NFL announced that Adrian Peterson would be suspended for the rest of the 2014 season. Though his legal case had been fully adjudicated in the Texas courts - and determined to be only a misdemeanor offense - the running back would not be reinstated.  He would, instead, be punished further.
