New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was knocked out in the first half of the AFC championship game against the Jacksonville Jaguars after taking a vicious hit. Jaguars safety Barry Church hit Gronkowski with a helmet-to-helmet shot with 1:28 left in the second quarter, as Tom Brady tried to find Gronk deep down the right seam as the Jaguars led at the time, 14-3. Church was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play, and Gronkowski walked off the field slowly — and with assistance.
The Jacksonville Jaguars were ready to do the nearly impossible, beating the the lion in the lion's den. They were the faster team to start the AFC championship game. The more physical team. The one with more swagger. And even before Rob Gronkowski was knocked out with a head injury, the Jaguars had a chance to bury the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
The Tennessee Titans have agreed to hire Mike Vrabel as their next head coach. Vrabel, 42, comes from the Houston Texans, where he was the defensive coordinator last season. He also spent three years there as the team's linebacker coach. The Texans struggled defensively, especially following the injuries to J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus, but Vrabel has been a rising head-coaching candidate for a few years. The Titans parted ways with Mike Mularkey, who guided the team into the playoffs.
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".
