    As someone who has gotten to watch all of it, it has been an absolute thriller.

    I have to admit that Williams did the right thing with that flagrant facemask on Kittle, because it was 100% a Touchdown otherwise.

    In other, random news: while I didn’t watch Denver vs Houston, statically speaking, if this is what we can expect from Drew Lock from now on, the Broncos have found their next long term solution at quarterback.

    every goddamn time I think "I'm numb it doesn't even hurt when we blow it anymore" it still hurts and then it hurts just as bad

    i saw 53 seconds on the clock and knew that was too long

    if I drank this team would have me passed out

    Yeah, they had the luxury of using a timeout until the clock ran out when they probably wouldn’t have even had to do that. Not to mention they had to waste a timeout on fourth down for not being lined up in time before the delay of game. So all things considered, 53 seconds on the clock definitely gave them plenty of time.

    Yep. Even I wouldn’t have expected the PeePee PooPoo man to be THIS harsh though. :(

    NFL football is weird and confusing. Seattle is a better team the LA but division games and primetime is a recipe for oddball scores. Then again Seattle has been coasting on a point differential of a team that should be barely above .500 so maybe they're not actually good?

    It was 100% wrong. He should have pushed Kittle out of bounds when he first got there.

    At least the Saints didn't call the "Prevent ourselves from winning" defense.

    I think we do have the say that Niners are not a fluke after going 2-1 against their Murderer's Row.

    The Tucson NFL schedule usually sucks toads. Today we got Niners/Saints AND Nevermores/Bills. The latter was surprising since we often get Denver games.

    Since we also got the Cardinals game, it was amusing to note it was all but a home game for the Steelers.

    Given the Rams lost the first game due to a missed field goal at the end, it's not that shocking they won.

    Well he should have tackled him immediately but he did the best with what the football gods gave him. Asking a D-back to push a tight end anywhere is a big ask considering that an NFL tight end is essentially a lineman and most D-backs top out under 200 lbs.

    It was a great day of football watching. Since the Bears played on Thursday, I just set the TV to Redzone. With all the scoring in the 49er's game it seemed like I watched the whole game. :lol:

    Not only this, but the Rams are a much better team this time around than last time we played them, for the reasons I already listed. Not to mention home-field advantage. The Rams, as they're playing now, are poised for a team playoff run (yes they could win out), or even reach the Super Bowl again.

    They should win the Cowboys and Cardinals games easily. I can't believe the Cowboys are still favored against them. But the 49ers game is going to be the close one I'd wager.

    On the contrary, all punts are guaranteed turnovers. Like throwing an interception ~40 yards downfield.

    The proper analysis weights success of conversion against expected yards lost on failure. But remember, in this context a 4th down conversion is like the other team turning the ball over if you successfully convert, too.

    The only explanation I can think of that comes close to making sense is that Vegas has no confidence in the Rams on the road. But then you consider the Cowboys have gotten stomped by two teams that are constructed to win 17-10...

    The Eagles are stinking up the place. They better get their act together. I want to hear the Eagles fight song damnit!
