In the Nov. 30 "Sports Nut," Jeremy Stahl incorrectly said that the Denver Broncos have allowed 13 points per game in Tim Tebow’s five wins this season. They have allowed 15 points per game.

In a Nov. 30 "XX Factor" blog post, Marjorie Valbrun misspelled Jon Huntsman's first name.


In the Nov. 29 “Green Room,” Chris Wilson misstated the age of Earth as 4.5 million years. It is 4.5 billion years old.

In a Nov. 29 “Movies,” Jacob Rubin misstated the title of the movie Cowboys and Aliens and the network that broadcasts 2 Broke Girls.

In a Nov. 22 “Future Tense,” Chris Wilson misspelled the name of Slate reader R.M. “Auros” Harman.
