The Bears interviewed DC Vic Fangio for their head-coaching vacancy on Wednesday.

It's probably just a token hire for Fangio. Although he's an excellent coordinator, Fangio has never really been in head-coach conversations over the years, though he was reportedly upset with the 49ers a few years back when they hired Jim Tomsula over him. Fangio then left the Niners and joined the Bears. Fangio is a talent maximizer. His unit was No. 10 in total defense this year.

Jets promoted QBs coach Jeremy Bates to offensive coordinator.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports they are "expected" to promote Bates, which means it is going to happen. It is a quick turnaround for Bates, who spent several years out of the league after a rocky one-year stint as Seattle's coordinator in 2010. He clearly made an impression in his first year with the Jets, however, and reportedly "had a significant role" in game-planning under ex-OC John Morton. No matter how good of a coach he is, Bates' success will hinge on the Jets' ability to find a quarterback.

The Tennessean reports the Titans will not retain DC Dick LeBeau.

It is not a surprise after the Titans hired ex-Texans DC Mike Vrabel to run the team. One of the best coordinators in NFL history, LeBeau did not coach elite units in his two years with the Titans, but the defense did show signs of improvement in 2017. LeBeau can clearly still coach, but it is possible the 80-year-old calls it a career.

Tom Brady said he will get the stitches in his hand removed this week.

The gash did not end up affecting his play in the AFC Championship Game, but it sounds like he narrowly missed suffering a serious injury. "I was fortunate not to tear any ligaments or anything like that," Brady said on the "Kirk and Callahan" radio show. "It turned out to be a lot good luck it wasn't more serious than it was." Brady should be 100 percent for the Super Bowl.

Bill Voth of Panthers.com said he would "be shocked" if Panthers DC Steve Wilks does not land the Cardinals' head coaching job.

The only true vacancy left, the Cardinals have cast a wide net, bringing in several candidates for second interviews, but it sounds like they are zeroing in on Wilks. If he gets the job, Wilks is expected to target Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo as his offensive coordinator.

Nick Foles underwent "precautionary" X-rays on his ribs following Sunday's NFC Championship game win.

Per ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, Foles' injury "doesn't appear serious," and the X-rays truly appear precautionary. Foles likely experienced routine soreness following Sunday's stunning blowout, although it wasn't for a lack of pass protection. The Eagles held the Vikings' vaunted pass rush to just five QB hits and one sack in the 38-7 rout. "I'm good, I'm good," Foles assured after the tests.

Adam Thielen caught 3-of-9 targets for 28 yards in the Vikings' NFC Championship game loss to the Eagles.

Thielen is believed to have played this game with transverse process fractures in his back, helping to explain his ineffectiveness. It was a whimpering end to a terrific campaign for Thielen, who caught five-plus passes in 13-of-16 regular season games en route to a stellar 91/1,276/14.0/4 stat line. Although Thielen is sometimes described by the public and/or TV announcers as "not that fast," he ran 4.45 coming out of college and is averaging over 14 yards per catch in the pros. Forever underrated, 27-year-old Thielen has a bright future as a consistent WR2 in fantasy leagues.

Jerick McKinnon rushed 10 times for 40 yards and caught 11-of-12 targets for 86 yards in the Vikings' NFC Championship game loss to the Eagles.

As the Vikings fell out of this game early, McKinnon wound up with more volume than usual in catch-up mode, severely out-snapping interior grinder Latavius Murray. McKinnon’s 2017 emergence as a playmaking RBBC member helped keep Minnesota’s running game afloat following Dalvin Cook’s ACL tear, as McKinnon set career highs in rushing yards (570) and all receiving categories (51/421/8.3/2) in a timeshare with Murray. Now up for free agency, McKinnon should be a relatively hot commodity due to his all-purpose skill set. He turns 26 in May.

Case Keenum completed 28-of-48 passes for 271 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Vikings' NFC title game loss to Philadelphia.

Keenum opened the scoring with a first-drive 25-yard touchdown strike to Kyle Rudolph, which was of course followed by 38 unanswered Eagles points. When the game was still in doubt, Keenum’s biggest mistakes came on a first-quarter 50-yard pick six caused by DE Chris Long’s pass rush and a second-quarter lost fumble to set up Alshon Jeffery’s first TD. Keenum was still a steady hand this season, logging a 22:7 TD-to-INT ratio and completing 67.6% of his throws, assisted by elite receiver play and a high-percentage Pat Shurmur-coordinated offense. Shurmur is expected to be the next coach of the Giants, and 30-year-old Keenum is up for free agency. Despite his strong 2017, we’re not buying reports Keenum will get the franchise tag. With Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater’s deals also up, GM Rick Spielman has many tough decisions ahead.

Zach Ertz caught 8-of-8 targets for 93 yards in the Eagles' NFC Championship game win over the Vikings.

Nick Foles went a perfect 13-of-13 for 178 yards and two touchdowns when targeting Ertz or Alshon Jeffery. Via masterful scheming and superb route running, Ertz got shockingly wide open repeatedly against a normally impenetrable Vikings back end. He surprisingly but specifically made Vikings SS Harrison Smith look silly multiple times. Ertz will be one of the keys to Philadelphia's chances of knocking off New England in Super Bowl 52.
Jan 21 - 10:00 PM

Jay Ajayi rushed 18 times for 73 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 26 yards in the Eagles' NFC Championship win over the Vikings.

Ajayi's 18 touches in last week's Divisional Round were his most as an Eagle to that point. He topped that mark with 21 in Sunday's victory, significantly out-touching LeGarrette Blount (6) and Corey Clement (3). Although he continues to lose scoring-position work to Blount, Ajayi should remain the focal point of Philly's offense in the Super Bowl against a Patriots defense that was damaged by all-purpose backs throughout the regular season.

Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-5 targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' NFC title game win over the Vikings.

With Xavier Rhodes temporarily sidelined by a toe injury, Jeffery whipped 39-year-old CB Terence Newman for a 53-yard touchdown bomb late in the second quarter, giving the Eagles a 21-7 lead. Jeffery scored again early in the fourth, skying over Trae Waynes when Minnesota’s zone coverage forced Rhodes away from Alshon. In a picture-perfect game by Nick Foles, Jeffery was his most-perfect target recipient. Expect Jeffery to draw primary coverage from Stephon Gilmore in the Super Bowl.
