Storyline: The 2016 playoffs start this afternoon for the Patriots as they host Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Adam Gase was the right hire for the Dolphins. Three more coaching vacancies were filled yesterday in what was a busy day in the NFL.

In an almost unprecedented display of bumbling ineptitude, this past weekend’s Wildcard losers spun a tapestry of undisciplined nonsense as they choked, gagged and fumbled their way out of the 2016 postseason.
