  • It just feels like the Detroit Lions are better than their record, right? Well, that might actually be the case -- Michael David Smith writes in the Wall Street Journal that the Lions have the worst record in NFL history for a team with a positive point differential. They're currently at +13 and 2-7 -- the second worst team in NFL history with a positive point differential were the 1971 Bengals, who finished 4-10. And yes, this correlates to the fact that the Lions are covering machines (8-1 on the year against the spread) and should correlate to greater success next year.
  • Nick Eatman, our Cowboys Rapid Reporter and DallasCowboys.com staff writer, makes the claim that Dez Bryant is the best player on the Cowboys. Frankly, it's a perfectly reasonable argument. Which is a scary thought for the NFC East in terms of the years to come.
