Perhaps adding to the chorus of criticism against the near end of week game, the stakes were pretty low for last night’s Thursday Night Football with neither the Denver Broncos nor the Indianapolis Colts in the playoffs running this season.

It says something for the dysfunctionality of the National Football League that Brock Osweiler doing a passable impersonation of an elite quarterback is fairly low down on the list of weird things to happen so far in 2017.

Three things to know ahead of Patriots-Dolphins on NFL Week 14 Monday Night Football… 1. The Patriots will go after linebacker Kiko Alonso, who is dynamic when he’s attacking but vulnerable when reacting.

Fun has too often been lacking in the NFL this season, but there’s just something so beautiful about seeing players make plays on a white field, looking more like kids in the backyard on a snow day than like highly paid professionals.
