PFT’s Week 11 picks

The bad news is that I’m now nine games behind MDS through 10 weeks. (Pointing out that it’s through 10 weeks makes it sound a little less lame.) The good news is that it can’t get much worse this week. We disagree on only one game. And it’s one of the biggest games of the [more]

Bucs and Dolphins sure could use a bye right about now

At the moment, both the Dolphins and Buccaneers could use a week off. Instead, they get to play each other 10 weeks after they were supposed to.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Going to Jets best thing that’s ever happened to me
