2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup season-Recap

What worked and what needs tweaking for the 2015 season This year NASCAR went with a completely new format for the Chase for the Sprint Cup with the elimination format. Winning meant more than ever and things were exciting on and off the track. But there still is some work to do before this becomes a permanent fixture in the future. What worked Win and you’re in: This year a win was a guaranteed ticket to the show, unless there were more than 16 winners, which won’t happen for a very long time and possibly never again.

Fantasy Football: Play ‘Em or Bench ‘Em- Week 12

Play ‘Em Jay Cutler: Cutler threw for more than 300 yards last week for the first time since week 6. He put up 330 yards with 3 TD’s and 2 interceptions. This week the Bears are playing the Buccaneers, who are giving up more touchdown passes this year than all but 2 teams. Look for another big day for Cutler. My prediction: 275 yards 3 TD’s and 1 interception Steven Jackson: Last week we saw a very poor outing from Jackson, who had 41 yards on 17 carries. This week looks much better for him as the Falcons take on the Browns, who are giving up 4.6 yards per carry(4th most) and have given up 1,421 rushing yards on the season(3rd most). This could be a big week for Jackson as he is 13th in the league among backs for carries inside the 10 yard line. My prediction: 115 yards ...

The Oakland Raiders could arguably be the most hated team in the NFL. And they are especially hated in their rival teams city San Diego.

Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano were both threats throughout the day, but a decision not to pit on lap 249 when many other lead lap cars would come in to get fresh tires did not pay off as he was quickly passed by the fresher tires. Logano had minor issues on pit road, costing him positions throughout the day, but none were as catastrophic as what happened on lap 249.
