    I had some emotions during that fumble that they refused to call a fumble.

    But yeah, I watched the whole game with a sense of foreboding. Which kept getting fulfilled at every turn, from us starting 10-0 down right to the Hail Mary attempt.

Then they manage to play the 7-9 division winner playing their 4th string QB in the playoffs.

    The Vikings are probably the second best team they have beat this year...
    IDK you could do that breakdown to a lot of teams.

    Packers got teams like lions x2, bears x2, vikings x2 (lost one), jags, texans, eagles, falcons, niners, panthers

    lost to colts, demolished by bucs

    Their only 2 wins against teams with positive records were saints and titans. And only titans game was a confident win; saints was by 7.

    The Bills, I believe, are the only team in the AFC with a Strength of Schedule above .500.

    There was a lot of disparity in the NFL this year, lots of bad teams and teams that cleaned up on bad teams. Unlike the AFC North, which got three playoff teams because they played the NFC East, the Bills played the NFC West and went 3-1, and only missed out on 4-0 on a fluke Hail Mary.

    Is it Playoff Lamar, Playoff Titans, or Both?

    After all the Titans were up on the Chiefs in the AFC Championship last year.
    Legion made WoD's mistakes into traditions. It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    What a shitty way to lose, having your receiver just...trip as the ball is about to hit him in the chest.

    Refs have been mostly OK this season. They were clearly saving their bullshit for the playoffs.

    Can you link a replay of the call you're talking about? I wasn't paying attention to much of the second half

    And now for the two worst games of the weekend.

    Very very tacky OPI on a RB screen. I will post a clip if I can find it. Everyone is posting the Ravens kicking the midfield logo right now...

    They should be better than just "OK". They should be spot on and just about perfect. As much video as can be used they should get things pretty much right. The more and more I watch it. Refs seem to have the mandate to make games "interesting" and close.

    They get it wrong even with replay, its astounding. The way they blew what should have been an game-ending fumble by Indy is not something we should have to be putting up with. They got the power to correct pass-interference with replay and did their best to sabotage it with poor decisions and have the rule discarded.

    Sports have this obsession with having a human element in officiating. At least the NBA will look at nearly any close call on video. It takes longer but most the time I watch they get it right.

SIR CHARLES BARKLEY PICKED YOU TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL YOU BILLS.
    Don't really post here, since I have nothing to value to add, but the Bills gave me a few more gray hairs as well. I have a bit of a lump of worry in my stomach that we'll get back to the SB and lose again.

    I'd take that over everything the Bills have done between 2000 and 2016. Don't get me wrong, it would be depressing to pile on superbowl defeat #5.

    Did the “F” bomb air near the end of the first half?

    If it did I missed it between fits of laughter reporting on stats like favorite ice cream flavor and Young Sheldon explaining the rules to me.

    They showed a brief snippet of the TD slime fest but I’ve not seen any more of it. If they are doing that fun and crazy of a job would be cool to have more of it.
