Abdullah Shines In Senior Bowl North Victory
As they have all week, the running backs stole the spotlight from the quarterbacks. Northern Iowa tailback David Johnson showed off his shiftiness on a nifty 19-yard touchdown run to kick off the scoring for the South and flashed plenty of potential as a return man, too. Despite playing with a hamstring injury he suffered earlier in the week, former Nebraska star Ameer Abdullah led the North and was selected as the Most Outstanding Player in the game. Abdullah led the North in receiving (4 catches for 40 yards), averaging more than 10 yards per carry (7-73) as he hit the hole quickly and was able to burst through for several big gains.

Need to Know: Which of their free agents should the Redskins keep? | Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
Scot McCloughan has just started to scratch the surface of evaluating the players who took the field for the Redskins in 2014. He did say last week that he has watched the tape of each of the team’s games last season and will start roster evaluations in earnest soon.

J. Biggers, QB Colt McCoy, WR Leonard Hankerson, RB Roy Helu, TE Niles Paul, and NT Chris Neild.

Pro Bowl officials to use tablets for video reviews -
The NFL will use Sunday's Pro Bowl as a testing ground for speeding up instant replay. Troy Vincent, the league's football operations chief, said Saturday that officials will lean on Microsoft Surface tablets for video reviews in the annual all-star game, a move that might ultimately eliminate zebras from going "under the hood" for replay calls. "The test in the Pro Bowl gives us the opportunity to see the practicality of the technology in game-time situations, make adjustments or improvements where necessary, and also gauge the usefulness of it to the officials," Vincent told The Associated Press. "Certainly, we believe it is an enhancement that we would like to integrate in the future."

Redskins' special teams improve but still among NFL's worst | Comcast SportsNet Washington
After the 2013 season there was one thing that everybody who watched the Redskins could agree on—that the special teams were so awful they would have to improve just to be bad. There seemed to be a costly gaffe in the kicking game every week and there were no big plays made by the Redskins to compensate.

Mariota says he sprained AC joint, might not throw at combine -
The Reese's Senior Bowl might not be the only opportunity to perform for NFL scouts that Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota passes on. The Heisman Trophy winner said he is unsure if he will throw passes at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis next month, due to an injury he suffered in the Ducks' national championship loss to Ohio State. "Right now we're still making that decision, whether to throw at the combine. I had to kinda rest about a week-and-a-half," Mariota said, according to "I sprained the AC (shoulder) joint. But now, I'm able to throw. Feels good."

The man who holds the Patriots defense together -
Super Bowl XLIX will feature two defenses with strong secondaries. The Seahawks get a lot of love nationally for their Legion of Boom, and with good right, but the Patriots aren't slouches in that area, either. New England's technically sound and physical defensive backfield is led by Darrelle Revis and enforcer Brandon Browner, but like his counterpart in Seattle, Earl Thomas, the main man in the middle for the Patriots is Devin McCourty, and he's the guy holding things all together.

Create your very own DeflateGate take -
This of all the week's has been filled with the most takes per capita of any other NFL league-week in this history of football. We are quite literally living in the Golden Age of Takes. In fact the takes this week have been so strong that they regstered on the richter scale at literally a 7.5- creating what Im calling the first ever "Take-Quake"
