Well, the NFL season has come to an end, and once again the Eagles were not playing in the final game of the year. That's very disappointing if you ask me (joking, we'll be there next year!). The Super Bowl was pathetic (I use that term loosely) but I'll get to that later. In this special edition of In the Redzone, I'll be reviewing the entire 2013-2014 season. Let's get started!

The fake headlines are back!

I think this brought a tear to
everyone's eye.

  • To start us off, here's a cool picture that shows some of the best moments of the 2013-2014 season (in cartoon form!).
  • ESPN also released a video where they recapped the entire NFL season in 160 seconds, if that sort of thing interests you.
  • There was a very funny article on SportsPickle that states what your favorite NFL team says about you. I advise reading all 32 team descriptions for a good laugh. First, the AFC Teams.
  • Now, the NFC teams.
  • Five different teams made the postseason this season compared to last season: the Chiefs (under first year coach Andy Reid), the Chargers (under first year coach Mike McCoy), the Panthers (under the NFL's Coach of the Year Ron Rivera), the Eagles (under first year coach Chip Kelly), and the Saints (Sean Payton, of course).
  • The Texans and Falcons seem to be the early candidates to be playing football next January instead of sitting at home, like they were doing this postseason.
  • Speaking of the Texans, they seem to be eyeing Blake Bortles or Johnny Manziel as potential number one overall picks. Bill O'Brien isn't sold on Manziel's work ethic, but that's a different story.
  • After going years without a QB throwing at least seven TD's in a single game, the NFL saw two QB's accomplish the feat this season: Peyton Manning of the Broncos and Nick Foles of the Eagles. At this point they're polar opposites in terms of accolades, but only time will tell if that will change.
  • I was looking up highlights of Foles, and I found this funny video clip where Casey Matthews (yes, that Casey Matthews) delivers a nice hit on Foles. Seriously, how funny is that?
  • The NFL communications department released a PDF of their own season recap. I won't go over everything but I'll include a few of the more interesting facts I found.
  • 13 of the 16 games scheduled for Week 17 had playoff implications. The playoff implications might have been very small, but it still counts!
  • 68 percent of games were within one score heading into the final quarter of play. That's great if you don't have a rooting interest, but not so great if your favorite team is playing in one of those games!
  • The 2013 season marked all-time highs in 50+ yard field goal percentage (67.1) and 50+ yard FG's made (96). I'm guessing Alex Henery wasn't a part of that increase.
  • This wouldn't be In the Redzone without some highlights, right?
  • Here's that kickoff return by Percy Harvin. When Matt Prater kicked that ball, I told my dad, "Now THAT'S how you kick away from a dangerous returner." Silly me.
  • Jermaine Kearse broke FOUR tackles on this TD reception. FOUR!
  • That terrible Metrodome in Minnesota is finally gone. The Vikings finally get to move to a decent stadium (well, soon anyway).
  • The St. Louis Rams owner purchased a large chunk of land in Los Angeles. What a coincidence; the NFL has been trying to get a team in LA for a while. 
  • The Pro Bowl was actually good this year; it was definitely a step in the right direction.
  • The Seahawks won the Super Bowl over the Broncos by 35 points, most of the commercials weren't good and the halftime show was fairly decent (well, depending on who you ask; I personally didn't have a problem with it). Three out of five stars just because the Eagles now have a better shot at hosting a Super Bowl (remember, the earliest they can host one is 2019). 
Well, that does it for this week's edition of "In the Redzone," see you all next week!
