NFL Person of the Year: As 2023 draws to a close, Taylor Swift isn’t just Woman of the Year, she’s 2023’s Man — or so say Forbes and Time magazine. With the admission comes one of Swift’s most in-depth interviews to date, in which she opens up about her romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, whom she began dating long before attending her first Chiefs game at a stadium Arrowhead. The bottom line for soccer fans and Taylor Swift fans is that Swift and Kelsey appear to be more than a fling. Fans should expect to see Swift in the stands at Arrowhead (and on the road) for the foreseeable future. Clearly, the biggest story of the 2023 NFL season wasn’t Aaron Rodgers moving to New York or Brock Purdy’s dominance, but Swift herself.

Is this the year of the Cowboys? If you’re a Dallas Cowboys fan, every year is “the” year (the one where the team makes it to the Super Bowl), but this year the 10-3 Cowboys actually have a shot. At the end of the 2022 season, quarterback Dak Prescott vowed to throw fewer turnovers (he led the league with 15). As of today’s writing, Dak has only managed to intercept six. With superstars like Brandin Cooks and Micah Parsons on the field, the Cowboys have never looked better. The Cowboys unseated the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14, beating them 33-13 to take the NFC East. The Year of the Cowboys? They are certainly on the way.

Good morning, Baltimore. Many hours of NFL sportscasts in recent years have been devoted to arguing the talent (or lack thereof) of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. Lamar has always been a dynamic scrambler from the pocket and this season was no different with Jackson posting 644 rushing yards, the best for a QB in the NFL. Lamar is poised to have the best season of his career. The Ravens are 10-3 coming into Week 15 and MVP chants have followed Lamar (again) every step of the way. The Ravens may not get the buzz of the Chiefs or Eagles, but they’re establishing themselves as a Super Bowl contender, and Lamar has already made a case to make those MVP chants a reality.
