Their seemingly secure lead disappeared, and when PK Wil Lutz booted a 43-yard field goal with 25 seconds remaining to give a 24-23 edge to New Orleans, it was all over but the crying.
Four months removed from reconstructive surgery, Robinson is now traveling with the team, so he'll be on the sideline Sunday at New England, serving as a mentor to a raw receiving corps.
But again, that's just half the battle.
Unlike Jackson, Berman didn't retire fully from ESPN when he walked away from Sunday NFL Countdown after the 2016 season. "They've really done a good job, so yeah, it's impressive". Four of the past seven have finished in the top four in that category. I want Tom Brady and Co.to lose just as much as the rest of the nation, but the fact of the matter is, they are the superior team.

Keenum has earned himself a lot of money while exceeding all expectations and remains the starter even with Bradford and Bridgewater healthy, which is phenomenal - especially considering that the Vikes have also been forced to work without rookie sensation Dalvin Cook. The Eagles D-line - particularly Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham - are beasts.
