Sports Psychology: Peak Performance

If you had an eye on the NFL playoffs this past season, you probably saw a few strange things—the lowest scoring Super Bowl in decades, the (now) Los Angeles Chargers winning their first playoff game in 5 seasons, and the Chicago Bears losing a game on a heartbreaking field goal attempt that agonizingly bounced off of one of the uprights and back toward where it […]
