With titles such as ‘FIFA 17’ and ’NBA 2K17’ expected to be popular gifts this holiday season, Onion Sports looks back on some of the best sports video games of all time.

Strongside/Weakside: Ezekiel Elliott

After becoming only the third player in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in his first nine games, Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott is an early candidate for league MVP. Is he any good?

Strongside/Weakside: Theo Epstein

In just five seasons, Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein assembled a team that is competing for the franchise’s first World Series title since 1908. Is he any good?

Jumbotron Really Trying To Push New Third-Down Cheer On Fans

SAN DIEGO—Noting that the phrase had appeared in large blue letters during each of the team’s offensive drives, sources at Qualcomm Stadium confirmed Friday that the Jumbotron was trying really hard to push a new third-down cheer on San Diego Chargers fans.

Strongside/Weakside: Kris Bryant

By leading the Chicago Cubs in hits and home runs en route to their second straight playoff appearance, Kris Bryant has placed himself in the running for the National League MVP. Is he any good?

Rest Of Nation To Penn State: ‘Something Is Very Wrong With All Of You’

Strongside/Weakside: Lamar Jackson

After passing for eight touchdowns and rushing for another 10 in just the first three weeks of the season, Louisville Cardinals sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson has quickly become the frontrunner to win the Heisman Trophy. Is he any good?

Onion Sports' Guide To The 2013 NCAA Bubble Teams

With March Madness just around the corner, Onion Sports provides in-depth analysis on which teams will make or miss the NCAA tournament.

  • Villanova: Like a team that’s second in the nation in free-throw attempts isn’t getting into the tourney? Yeah right, try to stop them, NCAA
  • La Salle: This is a team with a lot of spunk and a whole lot of heart but almost no pluck whatsoever—they face an uphill battle
  • Iowa: Accidentally filled out NCAA form 5601-G instead of 5691-J, leaving them on the outside looking in
  • Kentucky: Disappointing performance this season makes them an unlikely selection, but they have shown the committee flashes of the kind of serious NCAA violations a John Calipari team needs to go deep
  • Temple University: A strong finish to the regular season could set up the Owls for their most recent first-round exit since 2012
  • Gonzaga: The number-one team in the nation, sure, but how good can they really be?
  • Baylor: Their policy of outright refusal to shoot free throws during games will only serve to hurt Baylor down the stretch
  • University of Utah: The Utes had one of the most intimidating schedules coming into the season, which somewhat explains their 11-17 record
  • Northwestern: Don’t discount the Wildcats—6’5” guard Drew Crawford is the chair of the 2013 NCAA selection committee
