Packers 42, Saints 34

NFL Divisional Playoffs in Review

Jets 28, Patriots 21
CHRIS PUMMER:
The Jets (13-5) had a pretty simple formula for beating the Patriots (14-3). They didn’t turn the ball over and kept New England from making big plays.

NFL Week 16 in Review

CHRIS PUMMER: Disappointing teams have been cleaning house early this season. The 49ers got started by making Mike Singletary the fourth coach dismissed before the end of the regular season.

NFL Week 10 in Review

Falcons 26, Ravens 21
CHRIS PUMMER:

NFL Week 4 In Review

Falcons 16, 49ers 14
CHRIS PUMMER:
That’s back-to-back ugly wins for the Falcons (3-1), but they’ll take it. Meanwhile San Francisco (0-4)  seems happy to take a top-5 draft pick.

JASON CLINKSCALES: I listened to this game via AudioPass and just…
