The New England Patriots are the Super Bowl champions for the sixth time in their franchise history. The Calgary Stampeders took home the CFL’s Grey Cup for the eighth time.

Pick Six: Players of the Week

Josh Shaw

Six secondary standouts from football’s week that was:

Josh Shaw, DB, Bengals (NFL): The last time you probably heard Shaw’s name, it was in connection to the drama he created for himself at USC when he made up a story about jumping from a second-story balcony to save his drowning nephew, injuring both ankles in the process.

Howard’s 51-yard TD catch gave ‘Bama a lead they would never lose on its way to a 45-40 victory. Humphrey finished the game with five tackles and two pass breakups.

Sean Smith, CB, Chiefs (NFL): The ineptitude of QB Brian Hoyer and the Texans’ offense was a popular story line from the Chiefs’ 30-0 rout in Saturday’s AFC wild-card playoff game. More credit should have gone to Kansas City’s defense for making Houston look bad. Smith was the most impressive of KC’s DBs, tying for the team lead with six tackles, breaking up two passes and getting one of the Chiefs’ four interceptions. Continue reading
