NFL coaches, front-office personnel and owners are probably better off saying nothing about domestic violence. Like New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo did in January, when asked by the New York Post what he won’t tolerate as a head coach. “Domestic violence is something that we’re all cracking down on in this league,” McAdoo said.
Is the Big 12 Oklahoma’s to lose? Fresh of a College Football Playoff appearance with a loaded offense returning, Oklahoma is the favorite in the conference. Both of OU’s main challengers are breaking in new quarterbacks but that shouldn’t be an issue.
Some fans, many of whom will call in sick to work or school today so they can dig into the game, lined up last night for "Madden's" midnight release — while others waited for their digital copy of the game to unlock on their Xbox One or PlayStation 4. NFL players pay close attention to their in-game player rankings — and some don't hesitate to let EA (and the world ) know when they think they've been ranked too low. Despite occasional player objections, though, the information the game compiles on rookies, running backs and more is incredibly useful for people putting together their fantasy football teams. Those rankings and improvements to the game's artificial intelligence (AI) have helped it become a fairly accurate prediction engine for the real world, too.
