Nothing in sports seems more unpredictable than the National Football League. But the way it looks now, the best bet for Teddy Bridgewater’s return to the field could be the Minnesota Vikings’ final regular-season game against the Chicago Bears on New Year’s Eve. Presumably — but by no means for certain — the Vikings, already with 10 victories with just four games remaining, won’t need to defeat the Bears to affect their playoff status.
If it were up to tight end Kyle Rudolph, most of the Vikings’ starting lineup would warrant consideration for the Pro Bowl. “There are a lot of guys, especially on defense,” said Rudolph, who was a 2012 Pro Bowl player. “Then you look at the two receivers we have who have played extremely well (Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs). Adam deserves to be right there with anybody.”Selections for the NFL all-star game on Jan. 28 in Orlando, Fla., will be announced in 2½ weeks.
If Vikings quarterback Case Keenum continues to play the way he has, he’ll be in for a big payday with his next contract. Keenum, 29, playing for $2 million this season, can become a free agent after the season. It’s a sure bet, however, that the Vikings won’t allow him to hit the open market. Assuming he finishes the season performing like he has in leading the Vikings to seven straight victories, Keenum probably can expect a two- or three-year contract worth about $15 million annually.
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".
