This week’s ICYMI comes to you after a hectic week in the sports world. So for those of you who may have been constantly refreshing ESPN, or whatever message board you get your sports news from, we present articles from outside the NFL — well, we did sneak one in, but who are we kidding you’re going to read it.

Enjoy articles on action-star Liam Nesson, one of the most underrated actresses in Connie Britton, a man you have heard but not seen, and of course, a discussion on what the hell Chip Kelly is doing with the Philadelphia Eagles.
