What are the odds? At the start of the NFL season, it would have been inconceivable to think that these would be the four quarterbacks heading into the conference championships. Tom Brady, yes, but Case Keenum, Nick Foles and Blake Bortles?
Will this be Ben’s revenge? Three months ago, in a stunning 30-9 loss at home to Jacksonville, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had two of his 55 passes intercepted and run back for touchdowns. He had five picks on that day, and afterward would say, “Maybe I don’t have it anymore.”Roethlisberger rebounded in a big way, however, and got his team all the way to the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Sunday, he gets his chance to avenge that humiliating loss to the Jaguars.
The teams played in this season's Monday night opener too, but both sides looked very different. It was at quarterback for the Vikings, not , and Adrian Peterson (now in Arizona) was at running back for the Saints, who lost 29-19.
Doug Marrone on what he might have learned from Tom Coughlin's two Super Bowl wins over New England:
“I haven’t watched them. Seriously. If I’m not in it, I don’t watch it... Unless I have to, I’m sorry. David Tyree made a great catch though, he’s a Syracuse guy.”
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".
