Wondering which teams are going to advance in the playoffs? You’ve come to the right place to find out!

NFL Wild Card Weekend

Fittingly, an unprecedented 2020 NFL season remained unsettled until the 256th and final regular-season game. Washington’s win on Sunday night clinched the NFC East division title (with a losing record, no less) and locked in the 2020 playoff field.

The league expanded its postseason to 14 teams this season, meaning only the No. 1 seeds — the Chiefs in the AFC and the Packers in the NFC — will get first-round byes. The other 12 teams will compete in a six-game wild-card weekend that opens in just six days.

Our playoff primer previews those matchups and takes a broader look at what each team must do to reach Super Bowl LV next month in Tampa, Florida, along with their updated chances via Football Power Index (FPI).

NBA Load Management

Steve talks about the new NBA policy about “REST”. The never-ending debate about load management and resting players continued Monday, thanks to a new policy implemented by the NBA. This season, teams will be fined at least $100,000 if they are found to be resting healthy players for nationally televised games, according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes.

What is load management?

Remember when the Spurs popularized “DNP – Rest”? Load management is essentially a fancy term for that. It means giving a player a night off during an 82-game NBA season in hopes of preserving him for the playoffs.

EP94: If You're Healthy, You Play (Load Management)| StatMan Sports Podcast

Why is everyone angry about load management?

There are several sides to the load management debate, and everyone has some reason to be angry with the other. Fans are angry because the best player on their team is sitting games despite being healthy enough to play. Not only might that cost their team a win in the regular season, but fans are also paying money to see the best players in-person. They’re left to see Leonard or James or whoever it may be in street clothes. That stinks!

Coaches and players aren’t explaining the idea of load management well, either, and that also isn’t helping fans. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers was fined $50,000 by the league for saying Leonard “feels great,” despite load managing him hours later. The NBA has a policy in place to fine teams $100,000 for sitting healthy players for nationally televised games, but the Clippers confirmed with the league that Leonard is suffering from an ongoing injury to his patella tendon. Still, the head coach saying Leonard feels great, and then not playing him can be disappointing for a fan.

Fan entertainment is a priority, but it isn’t the only one. NBA teams aren’t worried about how a crowd might react if their star sits. Their focus is on reaching the playoffs and then winning a championship. Sometimes that means giving Leonard a night off.

A player’s primary concern — on top of winning — is also to get paid. Any major injury can cost them significant money. Look at what happened with DeMarcus Cousins over the last two years. If missing 10 or so games per year can prevent that, so be it, in their minds.

TV networks also aren’t happy about players sitting. The load management discussion skyrockets every time a player takes a seat for a nationally televised game. Most recently, that was the case on Wednesday night when Leonard sat for the Clippers against the Bucks. In the short-term, that might mean less viewers for a couple of games. But in the long run, decisions like this could damage the players’ pockets. Knowing Leonard wasn’t playing likely made the decision for some fans to turn their TVs off for the 10 p.m. ET game. Eventually, the less viewership, the less lucrative a TV deal will be for the players.

NFL History : NFL Records Broken in Week 13

In this week’s episode Steve put together the best stats and records from Sunday’s slate of NFL games. From Davante Adams, Aaron Rodgers, Travis Kelce, Darren Waller to Justin Jefferson, and Baker Mayfield.

  • Aaron Rodgers became the 7th player to reach 400 career passing touchdowns on Sunday, and did so in 12 fewer games (193) than the next-fastest player (Drew Brees: 205). Rodgers also eclipsed 35 passing touchdowns for the season, and his 5 seasons with at least 35 passing touchdowns are the most by any player in NFL history.
  • Philip Rivers had 285 passing yards in the Colts’ win over the Texans on Sunday and now has 3,263 passing yards this season. This is Rivers’ 15th consecutive season with at least 3,000 passing yards, the longest active streak in the NFL. Only Hall of Famer Brett Favre (18-season streak from 1992-2009) has had a longer streak of seasons with at least 3,000 passing yards in NFL history.
  • Justin Jefferson had 121 receiving yards in the Vikings’ win on Sunday. Jefferson has 1,039 receiving yards through 12 games this season, the 5th rookie in the Super Bowl era with at least 1,000 receiving yards over his first 12 career games. 3 of the previous 4 — Hall of Famer Randy Moss in 1998, Boldin in 2003, and Odell Beckham in 2014 — went on to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year (Marques Colston had 1,006 receiving yards in his first 12 career games but QB Vince Young was named the 2006 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.) Jefferson (1,039) broke Moss’ (1,014) team record for most receiving yards in a player’s first 12 career games.

Lots of numbers and broken records in Week 13 is all you need to know for now.

LeBron James has earned his fourth NBA championship and fourth Finals MVP, closing the gap on the ring total of all-time great Michael Jordan. As LeBron’s legacy continues to grow, the debate of who is the GREATEST player in league history becomes closer than ever before. 

Few questions have engaged the world of sports as much as the question about the best or greatest sportsman of all time. Often the acronym GOAT – Greatest Of All Time – is attributed to someone who is the greatest at a certain skill. But often the word ”best” or ”best of all time” is mixed into the discussion and then it gets complicated. 

The first question to ask is about the difference between ”greatest” and ”best”. Doesn’t it mean the same thing?

First of all, greatness is a measure of the merits and achievements over a complete career while ”best” is a perishable that has to be related to a certain time period.

NBA Power Rankings

It was impossible to predict what would happen during the season restart after 4 1/2 months off. But even expecting the unexpected, we have to be surprised by the performances of some teams in Orlando.

The title favorites have seemingly had a tough time adjusting. The Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers are a combined 7-10. The Lakers have had the worst offense in the restart, and the Bucks ranking 11th defensively over the last 11 days may be more shocking than that. Both Milwaukee and the Clippers lost to the Brooklyn Nets last week.

NBA Power Rankings: Blazers

The Phoenix Suns probably shouldn’t have been invited to the restart. But they were, they have their first five-game winning streak in 5 1/2 years, and they’re still very much alive in the chase for eighth and ninth place in the Western Conference. The San Antonio Spurs went to Orlando to develop their young players and they’ve found themselves in the middle of that same chase.

Two playoff series in the East are set. The No. 1 seed Bucks will face the No. 8 seed Orlando Magic, while the No. 2 seed and defending-champion Toronto Raptors will face Brooklyn, the 7 seed. We also know that the Boston Celtics are the No. 3 seed in the East, while the Lakers are No. 1 in the West.

Everything else will be determined in the next seven days, with the Western Conference play-in series taking place on Saturday and, if necessary, Sunday.

With the top teams all stumbling, there’s no obvious No. 1 in this week’s rankings. Fortunately, this isn’t college football or basketball, and the rankings don’t really matter. 

Feel free to disagree.

In today’s episode we will study this in depth and make the clear as to why he will win both awards by a wide margin. This topic was discussed in Episode 68 We also covered Alyssa Nakken becoming the first female coach in major league history, and the NBA setting a date for the season award votes.

Overview: Giannis Antetokounmpo case for MVP and DPOY

He’s the best player on the league’s best team and having a ridiculously dominant season at both ends of the floor.

He averages 29.9 points (third in the NBA) and 13.7 rebounds (fourth in the NBA) per game. His 5.8 assists, an underrated part of his game, rank 28th.

Another season, another opportunity for Giannis Antetokounmpo to simultaneously contend for the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Giannis | LeBron 2020

Seriously, the extent of his dominance is getting out of hand. Somewhat buried beneath James Harden’s historic scoring eruption is Antetokounmpo’s own nightly salvos. He’s averaging over 30 points…in barely 31 minutes per game.

LeBron James put forth his best effort before the NBA’s suspension, but Giannis Antetokounmpo maintains a grip on the MVP award. His Milwaukee Bucks were 53-12 with an overall net rating of 10.7 when the season paused. They’re legitimately one of the best regular-season teams in NBA history, and Giannis is the primary reason. He averages 29.9 points (third in the NBA) and 13.7 rebounds (fourth in the NBA) per game. His 5.8 assists, an underrated part of his game, rank 28th.

It’s also important to remember that Giannis plays fewer minutes than other players because the Bucks dominate so much. By per-36 stats, he’s first by a significant margin in points and rebounds. Milwaukee outscores opponents by 16 points per 100 possessions when Giannis is on the floor. His MVP case is close to unassailable.

One element of his greatness this season that should not go overlooked: his otherworldly defensive impact.

In a year with multiple quality contenders for Defensive Player of the Year, Giannis has risen above. His defensive rating of 96.5 leads the league, and the Bucks as a team give up just 101 points per 100 possessions, three points fewer than second-place Toronto. 

Giannis is the defensive engine, covering every spot on the court with his wingspan and quickness. He’s surrounded by smart, effective defenders (particularly Brook Lopez, who also has a real case for DPOY) who give Giannis freedom to roam and disrupt. 

Defensive impact can be tough to quantify. Giannis rates very well by any measure. He leads the league in defensive win shares and defensive box plus-minus, and ranks third (tied with Lopez) in FiveThirtyEight’s defensive RAPTOR metric. When he’s the primary defender at the rim, he gives up a field goal percentage of just 41.8 percent, by far the best in the league. His overall defensive field goal percentage is 36 percent, the lowest in the NBA among players who defend at least nine shots per game.

Milwaukee’s defensive dominance with Giannis on the floor is further indication that he has been the best defender in the league this year. The Bucks gave up eight points fewer per 100 possessions with Giannis than without him, impressive considering that even without him, they conceded just 104.2 points per 100 possessions, a figure that would rank second in the NBA. Giannis carried the Bucks from good to great.

Giannis is the heartbeat of the operation, a modern switchable defender who goes everywhere and disrupts everything. He is the Defensive Player of the Year, and he should cruise to a second-straight MVP as well.

Patrick Mahomes contract, which he signed a 10 year, $477 million dollar extension with incentives that can potentially make him $503 million. This is sports history with lots of numbers involved so we break them down into details, how it plays out for the chiefs, and ultimately, did it change sports contracts forever?

Patrick Mahomes contract extension after winning Super Bowl

If you are questioning why Patrick Mahomes got that big deal? Here is how his first 31 games have gone thus far.

☑️ 76 Pass TD (most ever)
☑️ 9,412 Pass Yards (most ever)
☑️ 108.9 QB rating (highest ever)
☑️ 24 wins (tied for most ever)
☑️ Super Bowl Champion
☑️ Super Bowl MVP
☑️ MVP

Patrick Mahomes contract details

In total, Mahomes could earn up to $502.631 million over the next 12 years if he hits all of his incentives. The base value of his contract, including the next two seasons before his extension kicks in, is $477.631 million for an average of $39.8 million per year. Starting in 2022, Mahomes will make an average of $45 million per year.

Below is the amount of cash Mahomes will earn in each of the next 12 years, because we all know the cold hard cash is what matters. The total cash each year is made up of Mahomes’ base salary, roster bonus and workout bonus, not including signing bonus pay and incentives.

YearTotal cashBase salaryRoster bonusWorkout bonus
2020$10.825 million$825,000N/AN/A
2021$22.807 million$990,000$21.717 million$100,000
2022$29.45 million$1.5 million$27.4 million$550,000
2023$40.45 million$5.5 million$34.4 million$550,000

2029$44.95 million$20.5 million$23.9 million$550,000
2030$50.45 million$27 million$22.9 million$550,000
2031$52.45 million$38 million$13.9 million$550,000

At least until the late years of Patrick Mahomes contract, most of his money will be paid in the form of roster bonuses that will become fully guaranteed a year or two ahead of time.

Mahomes’ incentives are simple. Each year starting in 2022, he can earn $1.25 million if the Chiefs reach the Super Bowl and an additional $1.25 million if he is named NFL MVP for a maximum of $2.5 million per year in incentives.

Which means in order for Mahomes to the full $502.631 million his 10-year contract extension offers, he needs to lead Kansas City to the Super Bowl as the league MVP in every season for a full decade.

The Chiefs did not need to complete this extension when Mahomes had two seasons left on his rookie contract, but their doing so in 2020 maximizes the amount of years they can tie themselves to a quarterback who needed just a few seasons to take over the league.

Barring something unforeseen, Kansas City is now set at the game’s most important position for more than a decade at a reasonable price.
