NFL Week 15 Pick 'Em
The Cowboys will try to get their defense back on track against the Packers in Green Bay. The Jets look to keep their fleeting playoff hopes alive in Carolina against the Panthers. The Ravens take on the Lions on Monday night in a game with huge playoff implications. Which teams will win in Week 15? Cast your votes now!
Miami Heat at Indiana Pacers
There's not much going on in the Eastern Conference outside of the Heat and Pacers, which makes Tuesday night's matchup in Indiana a must-watch. The Pacers came close to knocking off the Heat in last season's playoffs, and the way they're playing this season, it's not clear that Miami would have the home-court advantage this time around. Paul George might even be able to challenge LeBron James' MVP hegemony -- although, as in all things NBA pre-New Year's Day, it's still quite early.

Should the Redskins sit RGIII?
Mike Shanahan may be on the hot seat, but he's still looking for ways to at least partially salvage the Redskins' disastrous 3-10 season -- and, potentially, their future. One option he's considered is benching Robert Griffin III in favor of Kirk Cousins for the remainder of the season. Griffin simply hasn't been his usual self this year, with many blaming lingering injuries for his struggles. Cousins is a proven backup and could be a respectable steward of the team while Griffin heals, but Griffin is at a point in his career where he needs as much on-field experience as possible.
Which team will win the Fiesta Bowl?
Don't be put off by the lack of prestige traveling to Glendale, Ariz., this January. While Baylor and UCF aren't exactly renowned programs, each will relish its rare trip to a major bowl. The Bears haven't been to a big postseason contest in decades. The Knights? Never. The only thing that might make the Fiesta Bowl an uninteresting blowout is Baylor's offense; the nation's best scoring unit has been hard for everyone (except Oklahoma State) to stop. Can George O'Leary's group figure out a way?
