Lil Terio Is With The Steelers, Bet The House On Pittsburgh

Kill 'emmmm.

Wild Card Weekend of the NFL Playoffs, otherwise known as a top three sports weekend of the year, is upon us. The Steelers have the Dolphins coming to town on Sunday. The Dophins aren't even going to know what hit them. It's going to be a massacre.

Antonio Brown, the best wideout in football, posted a live video of Lil Terio getting down in the Steelers locker room. That can only mean there's on thing you need to do. Bet everything on the Steelers to win the Super Bowl. It's a lock.

You don't bring a guy like Terio in to lose. Terio doesn't lose. He's the American Dream in living form. If the people around him are any version of smart, he's made some money off his internet stardom (RIP Vine). You can just feel the energy in that room. Steelers by 50 on Sunday.

Lil Dicky Goes After NFL Players And It's Awesome (Video)

Pitting people against each other is as good as it gets.

The NFL is an intense profession to be in. It's undoubtedly the league with the most testosterone flowing around, seeing as grown men try and rip each other's heads off on a weekly basis for our enjoyment (thanks!).

With so much testosterone comes the thirst for insane competition. Every player in the league thinks he is the best at his position, even Sam Bradford, (though he isn't close to even a good quarterback, but I digress).

Lil Dicky, who somehow has unlimited access to NFL players in full uniform, tried to get Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown and Von Miller to say bad things about each other and filmed it. It's pretty comical, and shows just how trained these guys are by their team's PR staffs to say the politically correct thing.

Regardless, the video is pretty funny. And it let us know that Gronk really likes bananas, and might think they're berries. Gronk is the best.

The Steelers Have the Hottest Sports Fan

Black and Yellow looks pretty freakin' good on Sofia Vergara.

While the top athletes in sports tend to garner tons of attention, so do the attractive wives of said athletes. You can't go a day without someone fawning over Ayeisha and Steph Curry. Or go a day without a headline article about how some athlete has "the hottest wife of all time". Or even a day without some tweet going viral with a picture of an attractive women captioned, "Even when (insert athlete's name) is losing, he's still winning."

WAGs are what is used to refer to the wives and girlfriends of famous athletes. Today we found out that the Steelers' most attractive WAG may actually be the famous wife of a pretty famous Steelers fan.

In an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Kimmel, modern family star Sofia Vergara detailed her husband's (famous actor Joe Manganiello) affinity for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Manganiello was born and raised in Pittsburgh and played sports there as an adolescent, so the fact that he's a fan of the team isn't shocking. Yet, the way she describes his team pride is hilarious and reminds us that Hollywood stars have the same type of passion for their team as us diehard fans do.

While Sofia Vergara also described her newfound love for the Steelers, she may want to work on putting a bit more effort into pronunciation of the player's names.

Here's Sofia sharing a bit about her husband's love for the Steelers and her shaky attempt at pronouncing the name of Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. (We should probably cut her some slack though, it's not exactly the easiest name to figure out.)

In response to her failed pronunciation attempt, the Steelers sent out a hilarious video via social media of "Big Ben" assisting her in the pronunciation of his name, followed by him gloriously welcoming her to Steelers nation. It can be seen here:

Editor's note: Hopefully she is in Philly this weekend when the Steelers take on the Eagles. If so, you are more than welcome to come to my tailgate, Sophia. More than welcome.

The Best Offense Left In The NFL Playoffs Is...

This was a tough one.

As we approach Championship Sunday in the NFL, I take a look at which reaming team has the best offense. Before I begin, let me first acknowledge that all of these offenses are absolutely elite.

When determining which offense is best, I focused primarily on three main factors: the team's running attack, passing attack, and quarterback play. Of course, other factors such as dynamic play makers, offensive line play, and coaching were also taken into consideration.

I then averaged each team's ranking in the three respective categories to create an overall ranking. In the event of a tie in the overall rankings, I gave the tie-breaker to the team who has better quarterback play and coaching. Keep in mind, these ranking are based on what I have seen this season, specifically over the past one or two games.

Running Attack:
1. Pittsburg Steelers
2. Atlanta Falcons
3. New England Patriots
4. Green Bay Packers

My reasoning: I've got Pittsburg coming in at the top in the running attack rankings for one primary reason: Le'Veon Bell. His patience, change of speed, and vision are second to none in the NFL. Bell also has a stellar offensive line to run behind.

The Falcons are next thanks to duo of Devonta Freeman and Trevin Coleman. Both of whom have tremendous speed and ball-catching ability.

The Pats are third with the reemergence of Dion Lewis. Combining his explosiveness with LaGarrette Blount's power makes for a balanced attack.

Lastly, we have the Packers. I mean, Ty Montgomery is a wide receiver who is playing running back... and he's their starter.

Passing Attack:
1. Atlanta Falcons
2. Green Bay Packers
3. New England Patriots
4. Pittsburg Steelers

My reasoning: All of these teams can undoubtedly move the ball through the air. Atlanta earns my top ranking because they have so many ways to beat you. Whether it be their backs catching it out of the backfield or just throwing a jump ball to Julio Jones, Matt Ryan has a plethora of weapons at his disposal. Combine that with a dynamic play-caller in Kyle Shanahan, and you get the best passing attack.

Green Bay miraculously ranks second in the passing attack despite injuries to Jordy Nelson (ribs), Devonte Adams (ankle), Geronimo Allison (hamstring), and Jeff Janis (quadriceps). And it's all thanks to that bad, bad man Aaron Rodgers.

The Pats are third as they continue to prove they can beat you regardless of who Brady is throwing it to. And, by adding Dion Lewis to the backfield, New England adds another playmaker for Brady to throw to.

Despite having perhaps the league's best receiver in Antonio Brown, the Steelers are my worst ranked passing attack. I mean, they could not even score a single touchdown against Kansas City in the Divisional Round.

Quarterback Play:
1. Green Bay Packers
2. Atlanta Falcons
3. New England Patriots
4. Pittsburg Steelers

My reasoning: WOW. Is this the best group of Championship Sunday quarterbacks in the history of the NFL? All of these guys are straight up STUDS. Nevertheless, I am forced to rank them based on what I have seen to date, and more specifically over the past one or two games.

Taking home my number one ranking is Aaron Rodgers. And this one wasn't very hard. We may be witnessing the best eight-game stretch by an NFL quarterback ever. It doesn't seem to matter who he's throwing to; he will find a way to light up your defense. In my opinion, Rodgers is the league's MVP, but that is an argument for a different day.

Matt Ryan earns the second spot. And he deserves this ranking. Does he have the pedigree of Brady or Roethlisberger? Absolutely not. But he is having an outstanding year, has a ton of weapons to throw to, and just lit up the Seahawks for 36 points (and it could have been more).

Mr. Brady is third after struggling against the Texans last week in Foxborough. Despite last week's performance, I fully expect Brady to play very well against the Steelers on Sunday.

Lastly I have Big Ben. He just hasn't been the same big-time, playoff stallion that we've seen in the past. But he can change that narrative by beating the Pats this weekend.

Overall Rankings:
1. Atlanta Falcons (Average=1.67)
2. Green Bay Packers (Average=2.33)
3. New England Patriots (Average=3)
4. Pittsburg Steelers (Average=3)

The Four Hottest Teams Will Play For Spots In The Super Bowl

An NFL Divisional Round recap.

As the divisional round comes to a close, the four hottest teams are headed to championship weekend. The Steelers have won nine straight games, the Patriots have railed off eight in a row, it's been five straight for Atlanta, and of course, eight straight for the Packers. These four teams are getting ready to play for their respective conference championships and each have their work cut out for them.

In the first game on Saturday, the Atlanta Falcons proved very quickly that they are for real. Matt Ryan proved all the haters wrong on Saturday carving up the Seattle defense for over 300 yards and three touchdowns.

The Seahawks defense looked gassed all game trying to keep up with the high-powered Atlanta offense. Seattle's offense was never really able to get anything going and Russell Wilson felt the heat throughout, throwing away two interceptions.

The Falcons will look to knock off red hot Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, but they will have the home field advantage in the Georgia Dome.

Later on Saturday, the Texans took on the Patriots. Houston hung around for longer than most people thought, down just one point at half time. But in the second half, Tom Brady and the Pats had their way with the number one defense in the league.

Brady had another Brady day and the Pats steamrolled the Texans after the break. The Pats have a daunting task in the Pittsburgh offense, who was slowed down a bit against Kansas City, but is always capable of hanging 30.

Then Sunday came and the most anticipated matchup of the weekend lived up to the hype. The Packers and Cowboys played a classic, going back and forth in the fourth quarter.

Mason Crosby put a 50-plus yard dagger into the hearts of Cowboys nation (twice) and sent the disappointed Cowboy fans home. It was a classic case of another spectacular performance from Aaron Rodgers, who is having a stretch of games that people have never seen the likes of before.

Dak Prescott had one of the best rookie playoff performances ever, but it wasn't enough as the Dallas D couldn't hold after the Cowboys tied the game. MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers will take on MVP candidate Matt Ryan in Atlanta for a spot in the Super Bowl. This will be a rematch of the Falcons' 33-32 win back in Week 8.

In the final game of the weekend, the Steelers were able to outlast the Chiefs. A few questionable decisions by Andy Reid accompanied a failed two-point conversion and sent the Chiefs home and into the long offseason.

The Steelers were never able to find the end zone on offense, but six field goals proved to be enough. Pittsburgh has the longest winning streak in the league right now and will face the Pats, who are tied for the second longest.

The Patriots did knock off the Steelers back in Week 6 by 11 points, but both of these teams are playing their best football right now. The last time these two met in the postseason was all the way back to Roethlisberger's rookie season when Brady bested Ben, 41-27, and the Pats would go on to win the Super Bowl.

Week 5 NFL Locks

Vegas always knows.

We are now a quarter of the way through the 2016 season and we are down to just three unbeaten teams along with one winless team from the state of Ohio. It doesn't get any easier for the Browns as they take on the Patriots who welcome back Tom Brady from suspension. The Pats will be hungry coming off of a shut out loss to Rex and the Bills who are back to .500 thanks to wins against New England and Arizona.

Sam Bradford seems to have resurrected his career with Minnesota and the NFC West is confusing as ever with the Rams tied with the Seahawks at 3-1 after a win against the Cardinals. The Saints, Jags, and Bears all finally got their first wins and the defending NFC champs are 1-3 with a concussed Cam Newton.

Now let's take a look at our Week 5 picks after a less than stellar 7-7-1 record from last week.

Arizona -4.5 vs. San Francisco
The Cardinals are coming off two straight losses and have health concerns at quarterback. Still their defense is one of the top units in the league and they are taking on a struggling 49ers team who could be looking at a quarterback change after this week if Chip Kelley can't figure out what to do with Blaine Gabbert. Got to favor the better team on a short week. Cardinals should get back on track with a win.

Cleveland + 11 vs. New England
The Browns are bad. They are 0-4 and staring down a fifth loss as Brady returns from suspension. The Browns have played Brady well surprisingly and Brady will probably show some signs of rust early so I think the Browns can keep it close. Pats will win the game, but the Browns may surprise some people at home.

Philadelphia -3 vs. Detroit
The Lions are coming off of a loss to the winless Bears and the Eagles are coming off a bye and a 3-0 record. Another week of preparation for Cason Wentz will prove to be very helpful as the Eagles come into this game with no one on the injury report. Philly need to take care of this game as their schedule gets much tougher after this week.

Washington +4 vs. Baltimore
The Redskins are 2-2 and travel down the road to Baltimore to take on Joe Flacco and the 3-1 Ravens. The Redskins have played well on the road of late and the Ravens have been squeezing out wins in close games. Washington should keep this game close and could possibly win it outright.

Miami -3.5 vs. Tennessee
The Dolphins had 10 days to prepare for this game since their bad loss last Thursday to the Bengals. Ryan Tannehill seemingly needs a win to keep his starting job and I think he finds a way to get the job done at home against the 1-3 Titans.

Atlanta + 6 vs. Denver
The Falcons offense has been on fire of late and Denver may not have Trevor Siemian for this game due to injury. It's going to be a good matchup to watch between the high-powered Atlanta offense led by Matt Ryan and Julio Jones against the tough Denver defense. The Broncos should be able to pull this out at home, but the Falcons should be able to keep it close.

Cincinnati -1.5 vs. Dallas
The Cowboys have been riding the hot hand of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott but a tough Bengals defense could pose problems for the kid out of Mississippi State. The Cowboys defense still has some major question marks and I think Dalton and A.J. Green expose that. Bengals should win this one.

Minnesota -6 vs. Houston
The Vikings are undefeated and riding high after a Monday night win against the Giants. Another home game against the Watt-less Texans should be handled by at least a touchdown.

Pittsburgh -7 vs. New York (AFC)
The Steelers welcomed back Le'Veon Bell last week in a rout over the Chiefs and are looking to build off of that offensive performance against a struggling 1-3 Jets team. Could this be Fitzpatrick's last chance to keep his starting job with Geno Smith lurking behind him? Probably not, but the Jets have been playing very poorly.

Indianapolis -4.5 vs. Chicago
Andrew Luck has had no help this season. He is seemingly doing everything himself and the Colts are staring at a potential 1-4 start if they cannot pull this one out at home against the Bears. The Colts need a big win and have a great opportunity to do so against a bad Bears defense.

Buffalo +3 vs. Los Angeles
Rex has the Bills playing well beating Arizona and blanking New England and Jeff Fisher is too far above .500 for his team to win again. The Bills should be able to keep this game very close even if they can't pull out the W.

Oakland -4 vs. San Diego
The Raiders are playing very well having won three out of their first four and look to continue that against the beaten up Chargers. This will most likely be a shootout but I think the Raiders will be able to escape with a win.

Green Bay -7.5 vs. New York (NFC)
The Packers are a dangerous team on Sunday night at Lambeau field and they are coming off a bye as well. The Giants just lost in prime time last Monday to another tough NFC North team and have a tough task coming against Aaron Rodgers.

Carolina -7 vs. Tampa Bay
Cam is concussed but signs are leading toward him playing on Monday night. On the other side is quarterback Jameis Winston who has struggled mightily against good defenses this season piling up his interception total. The Panthers defense is going to want to make a statement after getting torched by the Falcons last week so they should take care of this one.
