N.F.L. Divisional Round: Our Picks Against the Spread

Green Bay and Tennessee will have the benefit of a week’s rest against San Francisco and Cincinnati. Buffalo and Kansas City will provide tougher tests for each other after coasting last week. The Bucs and the Rams’ veteran quarterbacks will take center stage.

What We Learned in the N.F.L.’s Wild-Card Round

The 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo managed their game plan just well enough to upset the Cowboys, but blowouts in the rest of the wild-card matchups showed the folly of playoff expansion.

How Week 18 Could Shape the N.F.L. Playoff Picture

In the N.F.C., Green Bay has clinched the bye, but a divisional race and a wild-card spot are still up for grabs. In the A.F.C., things are messier.

What We Learned From Week 16 in the N.F.L.

The Bills’ offense and defense worked in tandem to take first place in the A.F.C. East from the Patriots, and an ailing Baltimore team saw its playoff chances dwindle.

#allen-josh-1996, #baltimore-ravens, #buffalo-bills, #burrow-joe-1996, #cincinnati-bengals, #football, #harbaugh-john, #national-football-league, #new-england-patriots

The A.F.C. East Is Still Josh Allen’s Division

The Buffalo quarterback threw for 314 yards and three touchdowns to help vault the Bills to first place and to the No. 4 seed in the conference.

What We Learned From Week 11 in the N.F.L.

The Colts’ Jonathan Taylor has entered the M.V.P. discussion, Kansas City’s defense shocked Dallas, and Cam Newton is not a cure-all for Carolina.

NFL Week 10 Picks Against the Spread

The gulf between the two conferences will show when Kansas City and the Las Vegas Raiders vie in the jammed A.F.C. West, and the Cleveland Browns try to derail the Patriots, while the Rams roll.

In N.F.L. Awards Race, M.V.P. Won’t Be the Only Close Call

What We Learned From Week 2 of the N.F.L. Season

Bill Belichick sees a path toward making the Patriots a dynastic contender again, the Cowboys’ talent got a chance to shine, and Sam Darnold looks … happy.

NFL Bull Market Benefits T.J. Watt and Other Pass Rushers

N.F.L. teams are in an ever-escalating arms race to generate maximum pressure on opposing quarterbacks. The Steelers pass rusher T.J. Watt and other QB maulers benefit from the demand.

Which A.F.C. Teams Could Challenge Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs?

The Kansas City Chiefs fortified their offensive line in pursuit of another championship, but the Bills, Browns and a bevy of first-year starters should shake up the order.

The Giants Traded Back in the Draft and, Some Say, Well

Some fans scratched their heads at Dave Gettleman’s decision to trade back in the draft for the first time. But scooping receiver Kadarius Toney at No. 20 and getting draft assets was no fleecing.

NFL Playoffs: What We Learned From the Wild Card Weekend

Lamar Jackson finally won a playoff game, Tom Brady continued to break records and Nickelodeon’s broadcast of a game for children offered a welcome distraction.

A ‘Super’ N.F.L. Playoff Weekend Is Missing Something. Can You Guess What?

No, not Tom Brady. He made it. But the pandemic is forcing teams to keep large numbers of fans away.
