Where each team ranks according to the Super Bowl LVI

The Rams are Super Bowl LVI Champions and the 2021 NFL season is over. Where does each team stand before entering a crucial 2022 off-season? Check out our latest NFL Power Rankings to find out. (Author: Gardener)

the Super Bowl LVIThe 2021 NFL season came to a close Sunday night when the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in Super Bowl LVI. It was a career-defining win for Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, who likely cemented his Hall of Fame status by winning the Lombardi Trophy for the first time. The Bengals had many chances to win the game, but the future is bright for Cincinnati. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase have the potential to be elite players for a long time. The Bengals rose from 2-14 in 2019 and 4-11 in 2020 for a chance to win the Super Bowl in 2021. Here's our post-Super Bowl NFL power rankings as the 2022 offseason kicks off. It's a good starting point for a franchise that needs to address pretty much every position on the list. Jacksonville also has the No. 1 draft pick for the second year in a row. Davis Mills played pretty well for the Titans as a rookie quarterback. Will he remain the starter, or will star quarterback Deshaun Watson rejoin the team after not playing in 2021? The best decision for the Texans would be to trade Watson for a huge package of draft picks that can help expedite the team's rebuild. Lions fans were probably happy that Matthew Stafford won a Super Bowl, but it was also a painful reminder of the terrible job the team did in surrounding him with enough talent to win from 2008-2020. Detroit has the No. 2 and No. 32 picks in the upcoming draft, giving the team some chances to add premium talent to the roster this offseason. The Jets' decision to pick BYU quarterback Zach Wilson with the #2 pick in the 2021 draft hasn't looked good so far. Wilson struggled all year and didn't seem ready to be a beginning QB at the pro level. The Jets won't do anything in 2022 unless Wilson takes a big step in his development. Luckily for the Jets, they have two picks in the top 10 of round one. New York has its own #4 pick and Seattle's #10 pick on Jamal Adams' trade. The decision to pick Daniel Jones No. 6 in 2019 hasn't turned out to be great, at least so far. Jones wasn't bad, but he's stepped down since throwing 24 touchdowns as a rookie. He needs to make a significant move (or two) to prove he's the right quarterback for New York over the long term. Luckily for Jones, Brian Daboll is taking over as the new head coach. Daboll played a key role in developing Josh Allen into an elite quarterback in Buffalo. Ryan is still a good quarterback and deserves a chance to be back on a winning team before he retires - much like Matthew Stafford, who is leaving the Lions through trade to join the Rams ahead of the 2021 campaign. But the most pressing offseason question for the Falcons right now is the future of star wide receiver Calvin Ridley. Ridley left the team in October to focus on his mental well-being. The Panthers' season was derailed by star running back Christian McCaffrey, who missed 10 games through injury. Durability is a primary concern for McCaffrey, who has only played in 10 of the Panthers' 33 games over the past two seasons. The goal for the Bears in 2022 should be to build quarterback Justin Fields after a mediocre rookie season and then surround him with enough talent at the skill positions as well. That second task becomes far more difficult when star wide receiver Allen Robinson goes free. On the field, the goal must be to find a long-term answer at quarterback. Will he stay in Seattle or be traded to another team? If he stays with the Seahawks, they need to surround him with a better offensive line and quick attack. Without a draft pick for the first round in 2022, however, this will be difficult. The Broncos' path forward is quite difficult given the strength of the AFC West. They were the worst team in a division with the Chiefs, Raiders and Chargers. Denver needs to come up with a long-term plan at the quarterback, either through the draft or the trade market. The Saints performed better than expected in 2022, considering future Hall of Famer quarterback Drew Brees retired before the season and his replacement Jameis Winston missed ten games with a cruciate ligament tear. Longtime head coach Sean Payton left the team, and star running back Alvin Kamara was arrested over Pro Bowl weekend in Las Vegas. Jonathan Taylor, running back sophomore, had a breakout season by leading the league with 1,811 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns. In that case, don't count on the 2022 Colts being a playoff-caliber team. Veteran quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​is nearing his final year of contract. The Vikings had a pretty good offense in 2021, with cousins ​​running back Dalvin Cook and wide receiver Justin Jefferson forming one of the league's best trios. Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has a year and $18.8 million left on his contract. Will the Browns sign him to a long-term contract, trade him, or let him run free? Still, it was a positive step forward for the franchise. The Eagles have plenty of firepower to make big improvements in the offseason, most notably three first-round picks (Nos. 15, 16, and 19 overall) in the 2022 draft. The Dolphins fired head coach Brian Flores despite bringing the franchise to their first consecutive picks seasons since 2002 and 2003. The Cardinals started 7-0 but ended the season 4-6. Arizona wasn't at all competitive with the Rams in the NFC wild card round. Star quarterback Kyler Murray, who recently removed all mentions of the Cardinals from his social media pages, was pretty odd. The Raiders are about to begin a new era as former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels becomes the new Las Vegas head coach. The Chargers were so close to making the playoffs - they lost to the Raiders in their last game of the entire regular season. The retirement of Future Hall of Famer Ben Roethlisberger leaves a big void at quarterback. The Steelers could draft a quarterback in the first round or trade a veteran. With a strong running game and strong defense, Pittsburgh only needs a top-notch quarterback to be a contender for the AFC again. The Bucs had an impressive regular season, led by veteran quarterback Tom Brady, who threw for 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns at the age of 44. Brady has retired — at least for now — so now the Bucs need to find a new quarterback. Until then, it's difficult to rank this team among the best in the NFC. The Buccaneers are still a contender if a good quarterback is fielded. The Ravens' season was derailed because Lamar Jackson missed five games, including the last four. If Jackson is ready for 2022, the Ravens will once again be one of the hardest teams in the AFC to beat. Baltimore continues to have excellent running game and above-average defense. The Patriots made tremendous strides on both sides of the ball and returned to the playoffs after missing out on it in 2020. They were even the AFC No. 1 at one point and came pretty close to winning the AFC East. The decision to draft Mac Jones in the first round proved a good one as he was the top rookie quarterback by a decent margin. The Patriots need to surround Jones with more talent at the skill positions this offseason, preferably with a legitimate #1 wide receiver. Next Pats Podcast: Mac Jones on Pro Bowl Trash Talk, Josh McDaniels Quits & Offseason Improvements | Listen and follow | Watch on YouTube If Jimmy Garoppolo is traded, which seems fairly likely based on his year-end comments, the 49ers will officially begin the Trey Lance era in 2022. The Titans were No. 1 in the AFC and Mike Vrabel won Coach of the Year, but the season ended with a lone playoff result at home in a loss to the Bengals. Barring any significant changes, the Titans should continue to be the clear favorites in the AFC South next season. They're still a good team and this division is pretty weak. The Cowboys' season ended in agonizing fashion, but there is hope for the franchise. Starting quarterback Dak Prescott made a successful comeback after missing most of the 2020 season with a serious ankle injury. Rookie linebacker Micah Parsons and cornerback Trevon Diggs also became stars last season. The Cowboys have roster weaknesses to address, but this team should be back in the NFC title mix next season as long as Prescott is healthy. The offseason plan for the Bengals should be clear: upgrade the offensive line. Franchise quarterback Joe Burrow has taken a few hits since joining the league, and 2021 was no different. In Cincy's Super Bowl loss, he was sacked seven times, six of them in the second half. The Bengals have a bright future with Burrow and elite wideout Ja'Marr Chase, but a poor offensive line would jeopardize everything. The Packers' offseason will be dominated by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Davante Adams' future with the franchise. If Rodgers leaves, all the pressure will be on Jordan Love from 2020's first round to step in and lead the offense. The Bills almost upset the Chiefs in one of the most memorable playoff games of all time. Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen had another MVP season and the defense remains one of the best in the league. All the ingredients for another stellar campaign in 2022 for the Bills are in place, they just need to find a way to beat the Chiefs in January after losing back-to-back seasons at Kansas City. The Chiefs inexplicably led 21-3 in the AFC Championship Game and lost in overtime. Kansas City's defense has many weaknesses, but as long as Patrick Mahomes is healthy, this team should accumulate enough points to have a chance of winning every game they play. The Rams' decision to go all-in via the trade market, taking on quarterback Matthew Stafford, pass rusher Von Miller and cornerback Jalen Ramsey, among others, worked brilliantly as the franchise won Super Bowl LVI. gave up several first-round picks to make those moves, and that lack of draft capital will be a big problem in the near future. But looking ahead to 2022, the Rams should still be among the top teams in the league, especially if Aaron Donald doesn't retire.

Volcano Watch: comparing today's Kīlauea summit lava lake to previous observations

The February 3 issue of Volcano Watch featured some of the data streams used to monitor eruption pauses and renewals at Kīlauea's summit, including ground slope from borehole gradiometers. Dip data also provided valuable insight into the behavior of the lava lake that occupied Halemaʻumaʻu Crater from 2008 to 2018 before the 2018 series of collapses altered Kīlauea's summit topography. (Author: Gardener)

KīlaueaSummit inclinometer data (green) versus lava lake levels (blue). The upper panel is for the period December 1, 2017 – January 30, 2018 and represents the “old” lava lake. Note that in the lower panel, the lake level chart has also been detrended to control for its steady rise. The bars at the bottom of the lower panel show examples of eruption pause durations (red bars) and times when inflation has resumed but the eruption has not yet happened (black bars). Volcano Watch is a weekly article and activity update written by U. The February 3 issue of Volcano Watch featured some of the data streams used to monitor flare pauses and renewals at Kīlauea's peak, including ground slope from downhole inclinometers. Dip data also provided valuable insight into the behavior of the lava lake that occupied Halemaʻumaʻu Crater from 2008 to 2018 before the 2018 series of collapses altered Kīlauea's summit topography. In 2008, a brief series of explosions preceded the opening of a lava lake in the "old" Halema'uma'u crater. Lava convection within the lake provided a steady supply of sulfur dioxide (SO2), which was the main contributor to vog (volcanic air pollution) in Hawaii. When lava began to erupt from fissures in the Leilani Estates in 2018, Kīlauea's peak reservoir system began to drain, and the lava lake quickly drained before the peak began to collapse. One of the interesting facets of the 2008–2018 lava lake era was the close connection between the peak slope dates and the lava lake surface level. If the lake surface were to rise in Overlook Crater, the peak's inclinometers would record an inflationary slope. As the surface of the lava lake retreated, inclinometers recorded a deflationary slope. The interpretation was that there was a fully open connection between the lava lake and the magma reservoir at the flat top, referred to as the Halemaʻumaʻu (HMM) reservoir. As a result, the lake behaved like a barometer, the level of which moved up and down in direct proportion to pressure changes in the HMM reservoir. This unique behavior made it possible to determine quantities for the HMM magma reservoir that are difficult or impossible to determine for other volcanoes. For example, it is easier to track changes in magma chamber volume than to determine the total volume, but the openness of the lava lake from 2008–2018 also made this calculation possible. In a 2019 publication, scientists showed that by tracking deformation and changes in lava levels during the initial phase of the 2018 Kīlauea summit collapse, it was possible to determine that the total collapse and eruption in 2018 exceeded the volume of the HMM -Magma reservoirs reduced by a most likely amount of 20%, with most of the magma remaining in place. The current lava lake at Halemaʻumaʻu also rises and falls along with inflationary and deflationary propensities. This indicates that there is partially an open connection to the near-surface HMM magma chamber again. However, some of the deflation and inflation cycles are larger than others, and during these episodes the lava lake level falls and the eruption continues. The eruption does not continue and the lake level does not rise again while the inclinometers show an inflationary slope, but waits until the magnitude of the inflationary slope is approximately equal to the magnitude of the previous deflationary slope. As noted by Volcano Watch on February 3, this gives us a rough idea of ​​when the eruption pause may be over and active lava will return into the crater, allowing for a lot of predictions not normally possible. The time gap between the return of the inflationary slope and the renewal of the eruption is also an indication that the connection between the surface and the shallow HMM reservoir is not always open. As the peak inflates, pressure builds in the reservoir, and it is only when the eruption resumes that the pressure is released. This is an interesting and important difference between the current lava lake and the lake that existed from 2008 to 2018, and provides an opportunity to learn more about the conditions under which the system could switch from closed to open. The current overall trend of the Kīlauea summit magma system is slow deflation. This means that there are currently no signs that the outbreak could become more violent, and this regime of intermittent pauses and renewals could continue for a while. Without changes, there may even be a time when there isn't enough pressure left to power the current eruption. However, Kīlauea Volcano rarely goes long without changes, so we'll be sure to stay alert and be prepared for the unexpected. The Kīlauea volcano erupts. Intermittent lava has continued to erupt from the western vent in Halemaʻumaʻu Crater over the past week. All of the lava is in Halemaʻumaʻu Crater in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Sulfur dioxide emission rates remain elevated and were last measured on February 25 during eruptive activity at approximately 2,500 tons per day (t/d). Crest inclinometers show multiple deflation and inflation patterns over the past week. For more information on the current eruption of Kīlauea, visit https://www.usgs.gov/volcanoes/kilauea/recent-eruption. Mauna Loa is not erupting and remains on volcano alert level ADVISORY. This alert level does not mean that an eruption is imminent or that progression to an eruption from the current level of concern is certain. Mauna Loa updates are released weekly. In the past week, about 50 small-magnitude earthquakes have been recorded below the summit and upper flanks of Mauna Loa - most of them occurring at shallow depths, less than 10 kilometers (6 miles) below sea level. For more information on the current monitoring of Mauna Loa, visit: https://www.usgs.gov/volcanoes/mauna-loa/monitoring. HVO continues to closely monitor the ongoing eruption of Kīlauea and Mauna Loa for signs of increased activity.

'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 14 Episode 9 Recap

Season 14 will air on VH1 this winter with new episodes every Friday at 5pm. PT/8pm ET. (Author: Gardener)

14In Episode 8 of Season 14 of "RuPaul's Drag Race," the queens got a "heart open" on the runway after splitting up into girl groups for a retro-inspired singing and performance challenge. Daya Betty finally won a challenge after weeks of whining about eternal safety, while Kerri Colby fell quite short on the catwalk and was eliminated by Jasmine Kennedie in the Lipsync for Your Life. This week, the eight remaining queens go pro for DragCon panel discussions all about men. Read our recap of Episode 9 below to see which queens serve the presenter's reality and which don't remain part of the conversation in "Menzes." The eight remaining queens are: Angeria Paris VanMicheals, Bosco, Daya Betty, DeJa Skye, Jasmine Kennedie, Jorgeous, Lady Camden, and Willow Pill. Kerri was well liked by the entire cast but Jasmine had a special place in her heart for her, inspired by her drag before she came to the show and found a friend on the show who helped her come out with her own tranny journey. Daya's emotions were on the other end of the spectrum, proud to finally have won a challenge and not shy about how competitive she was and will continue to be. The next morning, RuPaul Charles gave the queens their next mini-challenge, in which they would "bomb" famous men in photos of them. Once gathered for a quick drag, the queens jumped in front of the camera to humorously add their clowning to photos of the likes of Lil Nas X on the red carpet, Billy Porter at the Met Gala and Shawn Mendes at the VMAs. Willow's "washed up Mary Lou Retton" accepted the challenge of doing a headstand on a dog in a street picture of Jake Gyllenhaal, Ru's favorite, and so she was declared the winner. As the winner, Willow earned $2,500 and the right to split the eight ladies into two groups of four for the maxi challenge. The maxi challenge, as Ru explained, was her chance to produce her own Menzes-themed drag con panel, with a member of the group acting as moderator. Willow went in the direction of picking queens, who she hadn't worked with as much as others, and picked DeJa, Angie, and Camden. That left Daya, Bosco, Jorgeous, and Jasmine as the other group, much to Daya's chagrin. The first step in the brainstorming session was to determine which queens would be facilitators for their group. Willow's group agreed that DeJa was the best match for their host and that the chemistry of the other three would work just fine as long as they see it as three friends just talking to each other. Chemistry was what worried Camden for the other team, and that quickly rang true when Jasmine suggested she would make a great presenter and Daya's reaction was unsupportive. Daya secretly urged the group to go with Bosco as moderator instead, but Jasmine took it well and happily used it as another opportunity to "not talk about others." When Ru returned for a check-in, Willow's group told her that their issues would revolve around fatherhood because it would give them every space to approach the discussion from a personal place. Angie mentioned that she actually once lost a panel category at a pageant because she was too shy, which served as a starting point for Ru to talk to the girls about the importance of being yourself. Bosco's group decided to talk about men in the realm of romantic relationships, but Ru noticed the split between Daya and Jasmine and asked her about it. The conversation returned to Jasmine's tendency to talk about people, so they were cautioned to ensure their conversation has direction so the audience can take away or learn from the panel. In front of their panels, the dynamic between Daya and Jasmine seemed to have improved. The new worry was that Jorgeous might freeze at the mic, but she too felt empowered by her group to perform well. Joining Ru on the main stage were Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and this week's guest judge Nicole Byer. Willow's team took the stage first, opening with DeJa explaining her plan to discuss "hot men, fatherhood and relationships & sex." Very quickly, the group found ways to incorporate jokes into their dialogue. The section on fatherhood offered the girls a chance to get personal and provide touching moments for audiences to connect with outside of the jokes. Camden even came out to talk about her relationship with her father and got the answer everyone wanted, a supportive nod from Ru. Bosco's group followed with a strong opening from her that immediately got Ru cackling. Instead of a conversation among a group of friends, it felt more like planned speeches from each of the queens, save for Bosco, who continued to drop the sarcastic jokes in a suitably professional manner. Jorgeous hung on her words a few times, apparently out of nervousness, and it drained the energy during her personal anecdotes about fatherhood. After the panels, the Queens walked the runway in the Shoulder Pads category. DeJa opened up with huge square shoulders in a white Chanel-inspired garment and beads, followed by Camden in a Nutcracker costume that began with a mask that completely covered her face, Willow in a "menswear in 2079" punk look , Angie in a houndstooth dress-and-pants garment, Bosco in a yellow trench coat with a sexy latex lingerie look underneath, Jorgeous in her first Selena-inspired pants on the runway, Jasmine in a simple neon catsuit, and Daya in the Camp look with football pads and spikes on their shoulders. Of the eight, Angie and Camden were positioned as the two safe queens while the others stayed on stage to hear reviews as tops and bottoms. Nicole lived for DeJa's moderation, although Michelle thought she felt a little stiff at times. Michelle called Bosco's look easy, but everyone on the panel thought Bosco was both funny and an excellent presenter. Carson and Michelle loved the jumpsuit Jorgeous wore on the runway, but they thought she stepped back and was embarrassed on the panel. Despite the simplicity, Carson loved Jasmine's runway look but felt she had aged for the judges, so the judges were disappointed that she'd shed the playfulness they were used to. The judges enjoyed Daya's presentation to the judges and as a result better understood her perspective on drag. Safety was offered to the other tops, DeJa and Willow, as was Daya, who was the top of the bottom three. This set up the moment we've all been waiting for, an LSFYL between Jorgeous and Jasmine. When she performed to the Etta James song "Something's Got a Hold on Me," Jasmine showed off some good tricks like a slow drop split, but Jorgeous embodied Etta's energy and spirit of the song, and her blue sequined jumpsuit lit the stage all by herself . NEXT WEEK: The non-elimination makes way for all eight remaining queens to take part in the legendary "Snatch Game". Be sure to make your predictions to influence our reality TV racetrack odds for RuPaul's Drag Race, Top Chef and more.

Saturday morning weather at your fingertips

Very cloudy today with isolated showers. Highs this afternoon in the mid to high 70's. (Author: Gardener)

SaturdayTYLER, Texas (KLTV/KTRE) - Good morning East Texas! Here is the weather where you live... Mostly cloudy today with a few showers. Highs this afternoon in the mid to high 70's. Also tomorrow a mostly cloudy day with highs in the low 80's. Scattered showers and thunderstorms possible tomorrow afternoon and evening, some could be strong to violent, particularly north of I-20. The peak of shower/storm activity appears to be in the early hours of Monday morning, with everything ending by Monday afternoon. These showers and storms are driven by a cold front moving through the area. This front will drop Monday temperatures throughout the day, our highs will be early morning and Monday afternoon temperatures will only be in the 50's. Next week we keep the chance of rain in the forecast, it's a good idea to save the umbrella and rain boots this week. This front could push our lows back into the low 30s and it remains to be seen if the front will be strong enough to push the lows back into the high 20s. I think the Texas Weather Tale says something like, "Don't rule out a frost by Easter," but if you're like me, you can't wait to plant the flowers and garden.

Ice storm warning until Saturday noon

Freezing rain is likely to fall over the northern half of the area Saturday morning, creating dangerous travel conditions. (Author: Gardener)

Saturday noon(WSAW) - A first alert weather day has been issued for the northern half of the area through Saturday noon as freezing rain with some sleet will affect the region. Freezing conditions on Saturday morning make for dangerous travel conditions. Isolated power outages are possible in the Northwoods as the ice crushes tree branches and power lines. Freezing rain will transition to south-north showers from late morning to early Saturday afternoon. Rainy spells, possibly heavy at times. Isolated storms are expected to move across central Wisconsin late Saturday afternoon through early Saturday evening. The storms will leave the area by evening. Rain showers will ease overnight on Saturday evening, changing to a light wintry mix or snow showers, particularly in the north, leading into Sunday morning. Total precipitation from half an inch to over an inch is possible Saturday through Saturday night. If you have downspouts that are covered in snow and ice, try removing the snow cover to allow water to drain away from your home. Temperatures on Saturday will vary from north to south, hovering near freezing in the morning and rising into the high 30s in the north, low to mid 40s near Highway 29, while hovering around 50 degrees or higher in the south around Wisconsin Rapids and Wautoma reach. Periods of rain spread across the area on Saturday afternoon. If you have Saturday morning travel plans in the Northwoods, try to push the drive into the afternoon as the icy roads get wet and temperatures soar well into the 30s by the latter part of the day. We will continue to monitor the impact of possible strong storms late Saturday afternoon into the evening. In more favorable conditions for severe storms, the first warning weather day could be extended until Saturday evening.

Saturday morning news summary

BART will receive nearly $271 million in aid money from last year's Federal American Rescue Plan Act, the transit agency said this week. The $270.8 million grant is the second-largest award for any transit operator in the nation, after New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and will help keep BART operating as ridership falls below a third of pre-pandemic estimates remain. BART has previously received approximately $1.3 billion in funding from federal relief packages approved since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. BART budget officials said last month that the agency used about half of the $1.3 billion it received and spent $25 million a month for the previous six months. At this rate, BART budget officials said the agency is likely to exhaust its federal aid sometime in 2024, between January and September, depending on how many drivers have returned to the system by then. The funding, announced Thursday, came from the $2.2 billion American Rescue Plan Additional Assistance grant program funded by the U.S. Federal Transit Administration is monitored. Five Bay Area transit companies, including BART, received a total of $525 million from the grant program.
