The Ravens secured the number one AFC seed. Seattle got beat by Arizona. San Francisco barely beat the Rams. This is my final #MikeRank of the 2019 NFL season! Enjoy… 1. BALTIMORE RAVENS Lamar Jackson might win MVP unanimously as the Ravens remain red hot. A week 17 rest plus […]
It really couldn’t have gone any better for the Fins in Vancouver last year. A 3-2 win of the Americans secured their fifth World Junior Championship. What’s even crazier is how only two years earlier they were one loss away from being relegated to Division A. I’m sure that thought […]
Slovakia has only two medals to show from the World Junior Hockey Championships, and repeating the feat of a 2005 Bronze Medal performance seems out of reach barring any sort of holiday miracle.

The IIHF World Championships are a fertile landscape for Cinderella bids.

You wouldn’t think that Cincinnati had a chance to make this game interesting on the road against Miami, but everything appeared wrong. Andy Dalton threw a 6-yard […]
The New Orleans Saints felt like they had cinder blocks on their legs in the first-quarter on the road against the Tennessee Titans and trailed 14-0 after the first-quarter. New Orleans got hot after that. They decided to fake a punt up 31-28 in the fourth-quarter with 4:26 remaining in […]
