    In an aside, I think Cowboys fans should be rooting for the Bills to embarrass the Boys - cause that'll mean the chances of Jason Hand-Clap Garrett gets fired goes up significantly.
    Jerry is already on record saying coaching is the problem, which is the farthest he's gone so far. So I think the chances are already fairly high.

    So, jury still out on the Packers how good they are or can be, but for the moment, advantage Niners.

    NFC shaping up to be interesting in the playoffs though. I'd LOVE to see the Niners and Saints clash. That would be an amazing game.
    Watching that game as a Packers fan I for sure think they are Super Bowl Pretenders more than Contenders.

    But I think they do have a lane open to them, but at this point it probably requires them to luck into the 49ers being beaten in the Divisional Round. Packers likely still end up #2 or #3, since the remainder of their schedule includes such cupcakes as the Giants, Redskins, and Bears. Likely they get the Saints in the Divisional Round then, that's a game they can win. But if they have to go back to San Francisco for the NFC Championship I think that's the end of the road, this team has proven that for whatever reason they just cannot travel to PST and win.

    Also the post-game radio had a growing number of takes that the Packers should dump Adams because forcing him the ball so he doesn't get mad is having the passing game do worse than it did without him. Not sure how I feel about that, but for sure it's time for the team to admit that their WR draft a few years back is a bust.

    In actual NFL news: Guess we know now why the Packers were flying under the radar. Good lord what a beat down.
    Its what happens when a finesse offense meets a physical defense.

    December 8th gonna be a big one, determine where that potential playoff game will be played.

    With a two game lead over their #1 pick rivals it looks like the Bengals are content to return to Dalton as their starter. As for evaluating Finley, 11 points a game and a 47% completion is less than inspiring.

    Ah Peterman, I'd forgotten him. BUT with Carr getting benched maybe his comeback is coming.

    I hope the Rams lose just because of those fucking horrible, eye bleeding uniforms. Sweet jesus they are worse than the Seahawks big ass tennis ball uniforms.
    I'm the root of all that is evil, yeah, but you can call me cookie.

    4th and 2, well within field goal range, and your kicker is Justin Tucker? Screw that, go for it, get it, and bomb a TD pass right after. Hard to defend that.

    Rams gave Goff a big paycheck and they are getting Flacco level production outta him. At least the Ravens got a ring with Flacco before paying him.

    I think he'd give him one more year.

    The problem with football over many other sports is the low number of games played. Many of these teams have the ability to beat the better teams. I doubt the Bengals could likely beat the Patriots, but then we have games like Saints v Falcons, where it looks like the "true" Saints didn't show up. The Falcons have/had a terrible defense and then suddenly they weren't.

    Like, if the Cowboys played the Patriots 5 games in a row, I'm sure they could win 2-4 of those games. I'm not advocating for more games per year, or a double elimination playoff race or anything, I just think people rate these teams so definitely. I'm sure if you go back and look at week to week scores, you would find multiple wild upsets every week.

    Anything can happen.

    I'm starting to think the league is rigged, its like the Rams want Lamar Jackson to score.

    Sounds like Drew Lock is probably starting this week. He is set up for failure with his garbage OC, but at least he gets experience.

    (inb4 we lose 3 of the next 4 and have to beat the Jets in week 17 to get to 10 wins and seal the deal).

    Man, Sundays are long when it's a home game. I've been drunk for like 12 hours today.
    If we win this one I'm body slamming every table in sight.

    Nice to see Bo Scarborough get a chance. He never got on in Dallas.

    Not sure I'd be surprised if the Bills end up winning today. Dallas is way too inconsistent that I'd expect their defense to let Allen run all over em.

    And rookie Blough looking better than Trubisky in his first game.

    Now Matt Prater hits a moving target for a very unique onside kick. This game has been fun so far being neutral.

    They compared Josh Allen to Cam Newton earlier because of his running style, but he sure didn't look like Cam there reaching to recover a fumble and grinding for a 1st.
