The talks for the past two weeks haven't completely just been about the Patriots going 19-0, something unheard of in today's NFL, but have also been a lot about the underdog New York Giants pulling off one of the biggest upsets in sports today.

One And Done?: Lane Kiffin Era Close To An End

After posting a 2-14 record in the 2006 season, the Raiders are finally beginning to turn things around. Last year, the Raiders had very inconsistent play no the offense. Quarterbacks Aaron Brooks, Andrew Walter and Marques Tuiososopo could not get the offense going. Now, Andrew Walter in the only one that remains on the roster.
