Yeah they just can’t figure the Jags out. Unbelievable. How does Jax play so intense against the Steelers and suck against everyone else? Just a suffocating defense today.

I didn't notice it in the replay (I was looking high, not low) but Alex Smith's injury is apparently a carbon copy of Theismond's. A fact JT pointed out within 3 minutes of the injury.

Even crazier, Theismann's injury also happened on November 18th.

The Skins just got hosed with an imaginary D-holding call. It cost them 2 timeouts and 1 minute at the end of the game with two minutes left.

Moreover, D-holding shoudn't be an automatic 1st down. That's one of a few tweaks the league needs to do to restore some defense to the game.

Wow, Broncos and Raiders both made game-winning kicks at almost the exact same time for almost the exact same score.

Two games today of 23-21, one 24-21, one of 23-22, one of 22-19, one 20-19, one 20-16. Crazy

Meanwhile, the Saints just completely steamrolled the defending champs.  There is always the fear that they are peaking too soon, but if they keep this up, no one will beat them in the postseason.

UGH.  Gruesome.  I got to meet Joe once about ten years ago - nicest guy in the world - and after he left where we were I happened to notice.... he walked like a 95-year-old man.  I don't think it was all that injury, but it couldn't have helped.

Bart, how'd you see that Cowboys win coming?   That's a nice call.

I stuck with the Raiders for a couple of weeks of bad losses that pushed me down to, what, fourth or fifth, and the week I finally bail on them, they pull one out.  WTF. 

And can the Eagles be the new example (ala Pat Mahomes) to stop annointing players/teams the next Patriots/Packers after one season?  I have no doubt that Wentz will be great, but it's not as easy as people think.

Ready for tomorrows showdown!  We will be doing a shortened tailgate.  The Rams called me today and threw me a bone.  For spending the $$ to go to the Mex city game, then not, they are offering us an opportunity and trying to make some amends.  We get to go on the field for the pregame warm up 90 mins before the start of the game.  Looking forward to a great day!  Hoping the game lives up to the hype....which I'm thinking it will!  Culminating in a Rams win!!!!!!!

Atlanta's run D is pretty weak, and Amari Cooper has given Dallas a more rounded offense for him to work in. I was honestly expecting a much bigger game from Zeke. Moreover these teams are going in opposite directions. Lastly, Dallas has a respectable pass D.

Yea that's pretty sick and for MNF too, actually a great game on the slate tonight.  Have fun, I guess it may still not make up for the expenses to go to Mexico City, but it's really nice of the franchise to do something for the fans.

Nice win for the Bears, not the best game for Tribusky, but offense did enough. That Defense is pretty damn good at all 3 levels.
They play the Rams in a few weeks, could be a preview to a playoff game.
Too bad for Alex Smith, always been a true Pro, hoping for a quick recovery. I really thought the Eagles would pull away from the pack and take the division, certainly doesn't look like that now, what a disappointment. Cowboys winning the NFC East ?? They should,solid team with the addition of Cooper and defense playing well.
Only issue with the Saints is, are the peaking too early ? It's happened multiple times to other teams. But they are definitely the front runner in the NFC.

AFC - Chargers should have beat the Broncos, horrible mistake by Rivers. Steelers are the Steelers, can never count them out in a game. But, can they beat the Patriots in the playoffs ? Chiefs are the Chiefs, usually fading at the end of the season or in the playoffs, I'm hoping this is their year to get to the SB for the 1st time in decades.

That injury to Alex Smith was beyond awful. Here's hoping he can recover!

I always defend Rivers as being underrated, but his decision at the end of yesterday's game was inexplicable.  He basically gave the Broncos an extra 40 seconds by throwing the ball away instead of taking the 3rd down sack and letting the clock run. 

The Vikings have other issues, but I wonder if they are having buyer's remorse in regards to Kirk Cousins.  He looks like the NFC's version of Andy Dalton (yes, I stole that from Cowherd, who said that today :P :lol).

So if you're Daniel Snyder how do you not consider bringing in Kaepernick? I've been a staunch defender of teams that don't want to hire him because I understand the complications you'd be saddling your team with. He's not good enough to start, and as a backup he's not worth the hassle. Yet this is a perfect opportunity for everybody. Necessity provides you cover from the naysayers, and in the middle of the season you're already adept at dodging the distractions the media will create. In the meantime, you're leading your division heading into the home stretch, and your starting QB is suddenly Colt McCoy. The available pool of backups is EJ Manuel, Kellen Clemens, Mark Sanchez, and TJ Yates. Is there really any argument that Kap isn't good enough for Washington?

Kap was dynamite for a couple of years. With good coaching why couldn't he be good again? But at this point, he'd bring such a sideshow with him.

This MNF crew is so awful. 

Fun game, despite very little defense.  I am sure the NFL loves this, since they've made it to where it is difficult to play defense, but these games where both offenses just go up and down the field at will get tiresome after a while.

The NFL totally blackballed the guy... they're too worried about their ratings plummeting from all the fans that got their panties in a bunch over the whole kneeling thing. The Nike commercial got that crowd even more riled up and made it all but impossible for him to ever return to the league, in my opinion.

Anyway, I totally agree with you (and Kev) on the rule changes getting tiresome. It seems like we may have seen the last truly dominant defenses in the 2015 Broncos and 2013/2014 Seahawks. Hopefully that's not the case  :sadpanda:

Initially I thought the collusion lawsuit against the league was bullshit. Teams have very good reasons to not want to deal with the guy. That's looking less and less reasonable to me as time goes by, though. It won't go anywhere; a federal judge will eventually conclude that players aren't legally people. Still, unless you're the sort of person that actually thinks Mark Sanchez is a viable option then it's hard not to see some merit in his cause.

Thankfully, in this game it's actually big plays on D that are making the difference. I don't generally want to see 48-42 games, but this one isn't bad. More often than not they are, though.

Best game I ever saw!  Major mistakes by Hill and Mahomes at the end.  All they needed to was 3 points to tie.  Hill sacrificed field position on that punt.  Should’ve let it go.
