The Panthers and Patriots are still chasing undefeated seasons, but they're major exceptions in an NFL that, entering Week 11, had its fewest number of winning teams since 1990. Just 10 made it out of the week above .500.
On this week's episode of "The Second Half," Travis Waldron and Donté Stallworth ponder whether the NFL has been stricken with a case of mediocrity that makes the league a little boring.
In addition, Huffington Post projects editor Ben Hallman joins this week's podcast to detail the results of his investigation into the use of student fees and other subsidies to finance college athletics. Travis and Donté also discuss the Dallas Cowboys' handling of defensive end Greg Hardy, and a big weekend ahead in college football.
This podcast was produced, edited and engineered by Peter James Callahan and Adriana Usero, with assistance from Christine Conetta.
