    That's an 87 yard TD wiped out by the refs getting everything wrong.
    3rd game in a row that refs have mega fucked up in a Saints game but I’m far more worried about brees

    There's no curse, NFL referees are just terrible at their jobs, even when its all laid out for them and they know exactly what they're supposed to do in a given situation, they do the opposite because they're incompetent.

    Refs have been terrible for years, too old, too slow, not full time so lapses in training. It needs to be corrected

    Refs were out scoring the saints and rams 7 to 6 before that kick at the half.

    Did look like it was going to a close rivalry game and then Mahomes and Andy figured them out and scored 4 TDs in 1 quarter.

    Patrick Mahomes and Kellen Moore give me hope for the season.

    Looking at the Bears/Broncos game, the London game in week 5 could end up being a 0-0 tie.

    Flacco with the goal line pick on a short pass to Sanders not even in the end zone on 3rd down. Solid play, especially when you have a receiver that is touted for his 50/50 balls to throw to instead.

    So we shut out the Chiefs for 3/4s of a game.

    Shame about the other one.

    Delay of game on a 2 pt attempt saved Denver from doing the same thing the Jags did. Then missed the xp, but the Bears were offsides. Went for 2 again.

    Actually converted it though. Interesting sequence of plays.

    And the defense blew it anyway.

    This Broncos-Bears game ending. Broncos for the 2pt conversion. Delay of game. Extra point instead. Missed but Defensive penalty. 2 point conversion again, which they make.

    Broncos up 1 with 30 seconds to go.

    Amazing finish to that game. Mitch Trubisky actually made a play with his arm and made a wise decision and the Bears have a kicking adventure to win the game go their way.

    Bears win.

    Chargers lost to the Lions, but they have historically always struggled when playing in the eastern time zone. The annual goal for the Chargers is to split all games there. That's why the Chargers win at Pittsburgh last year was so monumental. They've still got @miami and @Jacksonville (and also a trip to Nashville which is central time zone but feels like an eastern time zone gig). I'd be really mad if they lost to the Lions at home, but I had written off this game and the Jacksonville game at the start of the season already.

    Brees is going to a specialist. Now is the time to worry.

    Not sure if Wentz actually crossed the goal line on the 2point conversion there. Looks like he hits the ground before the line.

    Atlanta is pretty good up to a point and then they shoot themselves in the foot. Eagles still very much in this, when they probably shouldn't be.

    I think the lesson to be learned here is, if you're going to watch the Eagles play, you can skip the first 55 minutes.

    More off-coverage on a 4th and short results in disaster, what a shock.

    Julio Jones basically won this game for the Falcons on his own.

    I am now a Refs fan. They have given me more reasons to be happy and excited than any current NFL team. Go Zebras!

    Seriously though, refs rarely lose games for teams. Teams lose games because of how they react to adversity. But go ahead Saints fans, keep on crying about how you are constantly robbed. Every time a Saints fan cries an angel gets their wings.

    I mean when the head of officials calls out for the 3rd game in a row they made a mistake what do you want the team to do? They can't beat the other team and the refs at the same time. We're talking about a touchdown being taken off the board here. Do I think it gives the Saints a win? No, with Brees down I don't think it was going to happen but it would have been a closer game and you never know how the game would have changed with the score being different.

    As stated before I'm far more concerned with the Brees injury and if he's able to come back in a reasonable time frame I think we can still make the playoffs and do some damage. You can make fun of Saints fans all you like but if you can't see there is a clear issue with refereeing in the league then I don't know what to tell you. Better hope that shit doesn't happen to your team.
