The final four NFL teams give us a nice snapshot of what it takes to succeed in a given era. Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman once told me that after every season, he compiles averages of the rosters of the final four teams—height, weight, speed, age, athletic traits—and sees if his team is missing something. This year, though, his survey might not be as useful—and not only because his team will account for a quarter of his report.
Robert Mays and Kevin Clark react to the news of Mike Mularkey’s firing (00:30) before they jump into the Vikings’ electric win over the Saints (01:00) and the missed tackle by Marcus Williams (04:15). Then they discuss a huge victory for Blake Bortles and the Jaguars in Pittsburgh (16:00), how the Eagles held off the Falcons (29:30), and the boring prime-time matchup between New England and Tennessee (40:15).

Stefon Diggs is now a bona fide star. Through two games, the Minnesota Vikings’ second-year receiver has an NFL-best 285 yards, 182 of which he racked up in a crucial Sunday Night Football win over Green Bay. Diggs helped put away the Packers with a 25-yard third-quarter touchdown and wowed with a diving 44-yard grab between defenders, helping new quarterback Sam Bradford find his rhythm and the Vikes arrive at 2–0.
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".
