The NFL race for the Lombardi Trophy is now down to four teams. But surprisingly, the two worst quarterbacks playing on this weekend advanced to their respective Championship game. This is true even though the Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars hid Nick Foles and Blake Bortles to the absolute best of their abilities. Let’s give a quick overview of those two contests in which the underdogs prevailed.
Many picked Green Bay to win the NFC North. Instead, the Packers finished the season 7-9, behind the Vikings and Lions in the division and obviously out of the playoffs. Of course, Aaron Rodgers' collarbone injury had something to do with that - and Green Bay will be getting its superstar quarterback back for the 2018 season. That's a great step in a return to the postseason, but Rodgers' absence revealed several areas of concern on the roster.
Wild Card Weekend kicks off this Saturday starting with the Tennessee Titans versus the Kansas City Chiefs, and there'll be a variety of factors at play in determining whose Super Bowl LII dreams stay alive and whose seasons come to an end. Here are the four key matchups to watch on the weekend:Hill is simply terrifying. There isn't a comparable player to him in terms of big-play ability.
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".
