Apparently broken the record for pick 6’s too. Shame for him they don’t count as TD throws or he’d be MVP.

CMC got 1k Rushing and 1k Receiving an elite group of three it will be interesting to see what Panthers do with him as at some point soon they will have to pay him.
Really good question, it's not an easy one. Will say with him it would be somewhat easier to pay him as his availability has never been an issue either through injury or otherwise unlike Gurley and Zeke. What sort of deal that gets done will be interesting to see.

Suppose they could franchise him a couple of years but that will bring all sorts of disputes as to whether he gets paid as a RB or WR.

CODE RED, I repeat CODE RED! The Steelers did something on offense!
If we get each other next weekend I think probably the safest bet of the season is to bet the under. Wouldn't rule out 0-0 going to OT.

Never thought much of Tannehill but credit where it's due. The Titans are really getting something out of him. May be helping that they've given him an O-Line unlike what he had in Miami.

The Browns didn’t even wait until Black Monday to fire Kitchens. They really had no other option. Was always too big a job for a first year HC.

Many Chiefs fans on FB thanking Miami for a first win at Foxboro in 11 years.
So they should. I think the Pats and Fins should just shake hands on splitting our games in future. Can’t remember last time either of us swept the other. Just normally it’s you hammer us in Miami and vice versa in Foxboro.

Have to give credit to the Fins though, thought they played very well especially Davante Parker who owned Gilmore all game. Have to admit I thought you were in full on tank mode half way through the season but fair play they have dug in and hung tough even in a lot of games they lost. Probably not ideal for draft position but certainly earns more respect than some teams I can think of in previous years.

Seems as though the players and staff got the message from the Dolphins fans, who accused them of such. 0-7 and then 5-4.

Losing to the Bungles deserves the sack!
Cannot dispute that in the slightest. Gase should probably worry for his job with the Jets too on that basis though I suspect that how they’ve finished the season will save him.

Incidentally just based on the last eight games of the season the Pats, Fins and Bills would all be tied at 4-4 and the Jets would be well ahead of all of us on 6-2.

Titans at the weekend for us anyway. Really tough game, maybe with it being at home I can see us scraping some low scoring encounter but even so this may well be the last home game or even last ever game in a Pats jersey for Brady.

Perhaps the ex-Dolphins QB will do a decent job on the Pats? Seems to have improved since he left.

Potentially, seems the Titans have got the best out of Tannehill which was something Gase when he was with Fins never did. Certainly proved me wrong as I thought he was stone useless to be perfectly honest. They will win the game through Henry and the running game though. That is our weakness defensively. Does help having a quality receiver like AJ Brown in the ranks as well.

Anyone interested in a prediction game for the playoffs? I'll run something that I've just been thinking about this afternoon.

Slightly different ways to score bonus points each round and also bonus points for predicting correctly as far as you can before each round.

Unless anything looks glaringly shit an outline would be this:

Wildcard round: predict the winners of every game, up to and including the Superbowl
Divisional round: re-predict any games you need to + an over/under of 35 for each game
Championship round: re-predict any games you need to + total score in each game
Superbowl: re-predict if you need to + final score + points difference

Games Predictions:

1 point for each winner that you predict before each round + 1 bonus point for all you predict correctly for the future rounds. So the wildcard round, every game is 1 point. If you get 2 winners in the same conference and so have already predicted the games in the next round, those games are worth 2 for you. If you predict all the way to the Superbowl from the off, that game's gonna be worth 4 for you, with the Championship games being worth 3 obviously. If you're wrong, you can re-predict the whole thing and start again although the SB can only be worth 3 then. If you're wrong again and re-predict for the Championship games, the SB can still be worth 2 for you if they are correct.

Scores Predictions:

Divisional round over/under 35 is worth 1 bonus point each.
Championship round total scores are worth 2 bonus points for being bang on and 1 point for being within 7.
Superbowl final score is worth 3 bonus points for bang on and points difference is 2 bonus points for being bang on.

Might sound complicated with that wall of text but what you have to do each week will be simple. Shout up if you're not sure about anything or have any suggestions but if not all you need to do for now is predict the route to the Superbowl and its winners before the wildcard games begin.

Deadline is kickoff of the Bills Texans game.

I'll do mine here:

Bills Texans
Patriots Titans
Saints Vikings
Seahawks Eagles

Ravens Bills
Chiefs Patriots
49ers Seahawks
Saints Packers

Ravens Chiefs
49ers Saints

49ers Ravens

Next season's schedules! From Reddit.

I remember posting last year's version of this too.

a5HKNdS.png


Each team plays: 1) Six divisional games, three teams twice each: same row and color; each division is surrounded by a thick border. Example: Baltimore plays Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Cincinnati twice each.

2) Ten non-divisional games, ten teams once each: any other team (outside the division) in the same row, column, or background color. Example: Baltimore plays Philadelphia, Dallas, N.Y. Giants, Washington (same row), Houston, Tennessee, Indianapolis, Jacksonville (same color), Kansas City, and New England (same column) once each.


Don't see Pats and Bills having such a good season next time round with having to play the NFC West ffs and those extra games in red! Texans and Ravens for Pats, Titans and Steelers for us Bills. And actually taking divisional games off each other and Dolphins being better next season too.

Eagles probs got it most brutal of all though, NFC West, AFC North, and GB and NO. Sucks to be them.

Yes to terrible mediocrity with the Steelers, getting above .500 is the aim. Here we go!

Josh Allen was so careless with the ball there. Can’t be doing that and a potential game changer for the Texans.

Not sure why the Bills didn’t punt in that situation. A series of not great decisions in the fourth quarter from them are looking like it may well cost them this game. It’s a shame as they have had an incredible season.

Disappointing definatetly had oppurtunities to win today hopefully our young Offense can learn from this thought Watt in particular bullied Ford on the line it will be interesting to see what we do in the Off Season I think it is clear we need a few pieces on Offense most important is that big No1 Receiver
