    ESPN said Jon Gruden talked with the Raiders owner yesterday and Gruden says he is prepared to come back and coach but he still will not say that he is definitely coming back. Maybe he will announce it this weekend.

    The Jaguars play the Bills in the wild card game Sunday and they gave 1,000 free tickets to the Puerto Rican families who lost their homes in the hurricane and moved to Florida. That was a very nice thing for the team to do.

    Here is another story about Jon Gruden coming back to the Raiders. It tells how he was their coach for four years and then became coach of Tampa Bay and beat the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII.

    On December 31 -- go look! -- I said the 2017 Browns and the 2008 Lions are the only two NFL teams to go winless in a season. Actually, there have been eight winless teams but the Rams and Lions are the only teams to go winless in a 16-game season.

    The Rams just lost to the Falcons, 26 to 13, so their season is over. But at least they got to the wild card game. They had a better season than a lot of people expected them to have.

    The next playoff games will be Titans vs Patriots and Falcons vs Eagles on Saturday and Jaguars vs Steelers and Saints vs Vikings on Sunday. The Patriots won the Super Bowl last year and I think they are going to win it again this year.

    I am watching the college football championship. Georgia got two field goals and a touchdown and had a 13-0 lead at halftime but Alabama came back and the game ended with the score tied 20-20. It is going into overtime. A big brawl started when an Alabama player punched a Georgia player.

    This was a very exciting finish. Georgia got a field goal and then DeVonta Smith made a touchdown and Alabama won the game 26-23. The touchdown is already on YouTube.
