Why windows appear to be closing for NFC North teams

  Why windows appear to be closing for NFC North teams Plans by the Bears, Lions and Vikings have veered off course or run the risk of doing so soon, writes Yardbarker's Sam Robinson, and the Packers could join them.No division houses more members of this middling contingent than the NFC North. Entering 2020, this storied division has three teams firmly in the middle class. Bovada’s Super Bowl LV odds slot each between 14th and 25th.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ decision to sign reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes to a record-breaking contract on Monday changes the entire dynamic for the organization.

Mahomes is now under contract for what could potentially be the remainder of his career. His new deal could also have an impact on another high-profile figure within the organization.

At 62 years old, that would mean at least eight more seasons as an NFL head coach for Mr. Reid. Realistically, it seems to make a ton of sense.

It was back in 2017 that Reid signed a five-year extension with the Chiefs. That will bring him through the 2022 season. It remains to be seen if another extension will be in the cards here soon after he led Kansas City to the Super Bowl title back in February.

It stands to reason that Mahomes and Reid will be tied at the hip over the next several seasons.

Reid has posted a 77-35 record since taking over as the Chiefs' head coach back in 2013. That has included playoff appearances in each of the past five seasons.

Prior to that, Reid led the Philadelphia Eagles to nine playoff appearances in 14 seasons.

For nearly 160 years, St. George has been known as Utah's 'Dixie.' The name is all over the city. Is it time to change?

  For nearly 160 years, St. George has been known as Utah's 'Dixie.' The name is all over the city. Is it time to change? The word "Dixie" is everywhere in St. George, Utah. The controversy over its Confederate ties is back in the public eye — but it's not a new debate."Dixie" is plastered on hills, shops, businesses, signs, the local university, billboards and more across the city. The word has been subject to much controversy in St. George over the years — and now the debate is back.

Reid’s statement comes with Mahomes now locked into a contract with the Chiefs through the 2031 season. That’s simply astonishing.

Here's what it's like to be one of the first NFL teams opening training camp amid COVID-19 .
With 2020 poised to be the most unusual NFL season in years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s no shortage of uncertainties for teams to navigate. The Chiefs and the Houston Texans were the first NFL teams to have rookies scheduled to report on Monday. They were also among the first teams to have their IDER — which stands for Infectious Disease Emergency Response — plan approved by the NFLPA over the weekend. As of Monday afternoon, seven teams total have had their IDER plans approved by the NFLPA, a source tells Yahoo Sports, though that’s a fluid number that figures to grow as the union analyzes other teams’ plans.
