MAC in the NFL Week 15: Gearing up for playoffs


With only two more weeks in the season, NFL teams are getting really beat up and are completely ready for the playoffs to start already. Just ask Big Ben, who waited through the lights going off and on in Candlestick park to limp through a game on a bum ankle while throwing 3 interceptions. Meanwhile, James Harrison served his one game suspension.

In other injury news Cowboys S Barry Church is on IR and needs surgery on his shoulder. Not injury news, but you won't see Sam Hurd in an NFL jersey probably ever again. Never thought he would be mentioned in the same article title as BLAGO. A bunch of guys didn't play for whatever reason. The NFL regular season is too long, I've decided.
