The legislative history of PASPA is an interesting one.

Its passage 20 years ago was suffused with the kind of public moralism that has been used to cloak all manner of greed and stupidity on the part of sports management at every level, but most notably, among the panjandrums of college sports who, as always, were concerned only about the delicate souls of their “student-athletes,” and not concerned at all about someone besides themselves making money off the sweat of same. But they weren’t alone. In the congressional hearings, then-NBA commissioner David Stern told Congress that it had the power and the duty to regulate sports betting, and the law’s advocates in Congress weren’t shy about taking their consciences out for a walk, either.

Mariota’s development was a major reason why there has been speculation about Mularkey’s job status, despite Tennessee ending an eight-year playoff drought. For much of this season, Mariota hadn’t been living up to the lofty expectations set for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft in his third professional season.

As the standings suggest, Dallas needs to first pass Seattle and then Detroit before it can starting thinking about Atlanta.

The Cowboys can get to 10-6 by winning out, and they host the Seahawks with Ezekiel Elliott in Week 16. The next part of the equation is the Lions losing a game to either the Bengals on the road or Packers at home so Detroit finishes no better than 9-7. Since the Falcons beat the Buccaneers, the Cowboys need the Falcons to lose their final two games.

As improbable as all that sounds, with the Packers eliminated and the Falcons facing two tough final games, the Cowboys are far from dead. Their biggest obstacle is taking care of their own business. After the Seattle game, Dallas travels to Philadelphia, where the Week 17 game still could be big for the Eagles to earn the No. 1 NFC seed.

As crazy it sounds after its Week 15 home debacle, Seattle can still win the NFC West if it wins out (at Dallas, vs. Arizona) and Los Angeles loses out (at Tennessee, vs. San Francisco). That would be a shocking-but-not-totally-impossible development.

For a wild-card spot, the Seahawks need to win out and bury the Cowboys in Week 16. They also need the Falcons to lose twice and the Lions to lose once. Had the Seahawks swept the Rams, they almost certainly would have made the postseason. Now they’re hoping for a minor miracle.

Detroit has a favorable schedule ahead in traveling to reeling Cincinnati and hosting possibly Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay.

Carey Price made 32 saves for Montreal, which has lost four straight

“It’s great. You always have a smile on your face,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. “You come to the rink and you feel energized, just like a player, coaches are the same. It’s nice to see the room is in a good place.”

Canadiens have been held to one goal or fewer in four straight games.

“I would say we looked like a team that played three (games) in four (nights),” Canadiens coach Claude Julien said. “Having said that, again, you don’t score goals, you don’t win hockey games.”

Five reasons why Raiders’ rehiring Jon Gruden would be perfect

The Buccaneers played strong complementary football with Gruden. With the Raiders, he will put in place the right defensive staff and get the team playing hard and fast in all three phases.

There was always a danger in Gruden’s younger days that he would burn out, given how hard he worked to outcoach everyone. After being away for almost a decade (he last coached in 2008), you can bet he will be rejuvenated for the challenge and will appreciate interacting with younger players again on a regular basis. He should have learned well from his weaknesses after being fired by the Buccaneers, and he should have improved upon the strengths that made him the hottest coach in the league.

With all that, though, one of these teams is moving on to the divisional round against one of the two overwhelming Super Bowl favorites, the Steelers or Patriots. Hint: Don’t necessarily be distracted by which has the most heart warming story and the most pulse-pounding finish.

Black Monday did not quite create as many openings as some may have anticipated, with only five coaches starting the new year no longer in a job.

John Fox, Jim Caldwell, Chuck Pagano and Jack Del Rio joined former New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo in unemployment as the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts and Oakland Raiders opted to start fresh.

Bruce Arians called it a career as the Arizona Cardinals coach retired and, with six jobs now available, we rank them in order of which will be the most attractive.

There has been little exciting about the Lions for some time, but they have the pieces to be a serious contender. Quarterback Matthew Stafford is tied to a contract he signed this past offseason and the receiving corps has talent in the form of Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Kenny Golladay.lions_049
