Justin Houston Wins Deacon Jones Award

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker JUSTIN HOUSTON is the winner of the Deacon Jones Award, given annually to the NFL leader in quarterback sacks.

Houston, a Pro Bowl selection at outside linebacker, led the league with 22 sacks, tied for the second-most in a single season since the statistic was officially instituted in 1982, trailing only the 22.5 sacks posted by Pro Football Hall of Famer MICHAEL STRAHAN in 2001.

Wild Card Weekend Preview

After an exciting finish to the regular season, the NFL’s second season has arrived.

“The message is pretty much the same for everybody,” says New England head coach BILL BELICHICK about playing the postseason. “We all know that this is single elimination and you put everything you have into it. There’s nothing to save it for, nothing to hold back. You compete with all you’ve got. I think that’s true for everybody. This should be the best we all have.”

Week 17 came right down to the wire as 10 of the 16 games played on the final day of the regular season had playoff implications. Sunday’s excitement was due in part to having 16 divisional games played on the season’s final day, a tradition instituted in 2010. And four divisions were decided on the last day of the regular season, including the AFC North in game No. 256 of 256 as Pittsburgh defeated Cincinnati.

“We’re excited about getting to where we are,” says Seattle quarterback RUSSELL WILSON about the team winning the NFC West and clinching the No. 1 seed in the conference. “The first goal that we had was winning the NFC West and getting to the playoffs and we were able to do that. It’s definitely exciting going into the playoffs.”

The final 12 teams are now set. It doesn’t matter how you got here. All that matters is that you’re here.

2014 Season In Review

RECORD-BREAKING 2014 SEASON HAD IT ALL

Many close games and great comeback victories…new teams making the playoffs and winning divisions…consistent teams excelling once again…records falling…young players making their mark…and so much more.

The 2014 season really did have it all, including a fantastic finish.

Week 17 came right down to the wire as 10 of the 16 games scheduled for the final day of the regular season had playoff implications. Sunday’s excitement was due in part to having 16 divisional games played on the season’s final day, a tradition instituted in 2010.

Each of the 12 teams still in Super Bowl XLIX contention can look back at the wild ride that was the 2014 regular season and appreciate how challenging the road to the playoffs was.

Since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs that were not in the postseason the year before. Five teams – Dallas (12-4), Arizona (11-5), Detroit (11-5), Pittsburgh (11-5) and Baltimore (10-6) – accomplished the feat this year.
