NFL Week 12 Live: Philip Rivers and Dan Marino; Spygate II
The latest to try to topple Dan Marino's 25-year-old, single-season record of 5,084 passing yards? It's Philip Rivers, who enters the San Diego Chargers' game against Indianapolis on pace to finish with 5,083.2. A quarterback must average 318 yards a game passing, which sounds easier than it is. Drew Brees finished 16 yards shy in 2008.
Spygate II: The NFL has fined Broncos Coach Josh McDaniels and the Denver Broncos $50,000 each for videotaping the San Francisco 49ers' walk-through before the teams played in London (an international incident!). Steve Scarnecchia, the employee who did the taping, was fired by the Broncos and may be banned from the league, which will look into the matter. Both he and McDaniels were with the Patriots when Spygate I erupted.
It's early to start talking playoffs, but, really, is it ever too early? The basics:NFC: Division leaders are Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago and Seattle; wild-card leaders are New Orleans and Green Bay. Tampa Bay, the New York Giants, Washington Redskins and St. Louis Rams are in the mix.
AFC: Division leaders are New York Jets, Baltimore, Kansas City and Jacksonville; wild-card leaders are New England and Pittsburgh. Indianapolis, Oakland, San Diego, Miami, Tennessee and Houston are in the mix.
