The Dallas Cowboys’ season ended Sunday night in the weirdest way. It was the quietest death you can imagine. Dallas desperately needed to beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, Quarterback Dak Prescott said he thought it was a must-win game, and it was hard to view it any other way. And the Cowboys got blown out 37-9. They got outscored 30-0 in the second half. Dallas wasn’t even competitive. Technically the Cowboys’ season isn’t over. At 5-5, they could win out and get a wild card.
The NFL’s commitment to international games isn’t slowing down. Just before the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots were to kick off in Mexico City on Sunday afternoon, the NFL and Mexico Ministry of Tourism announced the NFL will play a game in Mexico each season through 2021. That adds three years onto the agreement, which was slated to run through 2018. The NFL has held games in London since 2007, with no end in sight to games in the United Kingdom.
No team has ever played a Super Bowl in its home stadium. You’d think in 51 Super Bowls, it would have happened once by now. After Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings can dream about being the first team to have a home Super Bowl. The Vikings, perhaps the biggest surprise story in the NFL this season, kept the good vibes rolling with an impressive 24-7 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Both teams came in with 7-2 records.
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".
