Blake Bortles completed 64 percent of his passes for 293 yards in the AFC Championship. Tom Brady completed 68 percent for 290 yards. Statistically, the difference between the play of the quarterbacks of the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots on Sunday was miniscule. There’s context that helps explain the similar stats, though.
When the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons in the Divisional Round, offensive tackle Lane Johnson and defensive end Chris Long walked off Lincoln Financial Field wearing dog masks. Eagles fans ate it up and bought dog masks en masse before the NFC Championship against the Minnesota Vikings. The team accommodated by announcing Monday that fans can wear the masks to the game as long as they take them off when they go through security. Why dog masks?
The Jacksonville Jaguars’ unlikely path to the AFC Championship has raised the possibility that Blake Bortles could start for the team again in 2018. But five months ago, when the Jaguars were preparing to begin the 2017 season, it wasn’t even clear if he’d be able to hold off veteran Chad Henne for the job. After struggling through the first weeks of August, including two preseason games, Bortles was benched in favor of Henne for the third preseason game of the year. Why was Blake Bortles benched?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
