Marvin Lewis Reportedly Leaving Bengals

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that after 15 seasons as head coach, Marvin Lewis will leave the Cincinnati Bengals after the season.

Lewis' contract, and those of all his assistants, expires at the end of the year.

"If a head-coaching job does not materialize," Schefter writes, "sources said Lewis would be interested in working in another team's front office or as a coaching adviser for a former Bengals assistant coach who has gone on to become a head coach, such as Mike Zimmer, whose Minnesota Vikings host the Bengals on Sunday."

The Colts-Bills snow game had us looking through the record books to find the best players in whiteout conditions. LeSean McCoy comes out on top of all running backs, while a familiar New England duo set the standards for passing and receiving.

Commissioner Goodell Signs Five-Year Extension

The 2017 NFL season has been most famous for political protests; on-again, off-again domestic violence suspensions; and most recently, exceedingly violent behavior and safety concerns. For all that chaos, however, the league is still clearly making boatloads of money, because today they extended commissioner Roger Goodell to a five-year contract worth up to $200 million. That's $40 million per year; for comparison's sake, the league's highest-paid player, Matthew Stafford, will average about $26 million per year over the course of his contract.

College Football Playoff: Clemson-Alabama, Oklahoma-Georgia

Three spots were obvious, one was up for debate, but the College Football Playoff field is set: the No. 1 Clemson Tigers will face the No. 4 Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl, and the No. 2 Oklahoma Sooners will play the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs in the Rose Bowl on January 1.

It will be a moot point by then, but it will still be interesting to see how the FEI ratings view Alabama and the Ohio State Buckeyes when we gather that data later in the week.
