Report: Lions parting ways with QB coach Brian Callahan



After previously keeping him from interviewing for other jobs, Detroit is letting their quarterback coach explore opportunities elsewhere.

Although Detroit’s official announcement of Matt Patricia as their new head coach is two weeks away, that isn’t stopping the team from making other changes to their coaching staff.

According to a report from Albert Breer of The MMQB, the Lions are moving on from quarterbacks coach Brian Callahan, granting him the chance to pursue other job opportunities—and potentially a promotion to offensive coordinator as Breer mentioned back in January of 2017.

So far with the Patriots, Patricia has won three Super Bowls—two as the team’s defensive coordinator. New England will get a chance to send him off with one more on Feb. 4, when they face off against the Philadelphia Eagles—the team the Patriots defeated to give Patricia his first Super Bowl ring back in 2005.

Patricia cannot be officially hired by the Lions until after the Super Bowl, but he could meet with Detroit this week in order to close on the deal.

NFC Championship Game: Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles



Come watch the NFC Conference Championship Game with us.

The AFC is set. The Patriots will be playing in two weeks for Super Bowl LII. Now it’s time to determine their opponent.

The Minnesota Vikings may be playing in Philadelphia, but they’re the favorites this week against the NFC’s one-seed: The Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles, much like the Jaguars in the AFC, have embraced their underdog status ever since Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending injury. They upset the Falcons last week with a 15-10 defensive battle and they’re hoping to repeat such a performance against a good Vikings offense.

The entire town of Minneapolis is probably still buzzing from last week’s miracle, but don’t get it twisted: They’re going to be ready on Sunday. Led by one of the best defenses in the league, along with a shockingly good season from Case Keenum, this Vikings team is poised to compete with anyone in this league.

Kickoff is soon. Come enjoy the game with us:
