    Yeah there's a stat that the team that wins turnover battle wins 77% of the time. Of course some of that has the causation reversed (if you're behind you tend to be more aggressive and commit more turnovers) but any team that commits 4 turnovers early in the playoffs is most likely gonna lose the game.

    I wonder if they just shouldn't have had a different team call the game, it would have been better than Romo and Nantz tripping over each other the whole game.

    Hmm... field goal, punt, touchdown, punt, touchdown. Another punt touchdown combo and we've got a stew going.

    Don't look now, Steelers are closing the gap. If I was a Cleveland fan I'd be having a heart attack right now.

    Been a good weekend for the never punt crew.

    Deciding to not go for it on 4th and 1 near midfield and punting down 12. Now they are down 19.

    And that should do it there.

    On the Bears and Trubisky... I know he's not an elite player, but I just wonder about these teams that have a bad qb and just play super conservative all the time. Bears have been 26, 29, 21, and 30th in yards gained on offense over the past 4 seasons. Trubisky has a not terrible QB rating of 87 over that timeframe and completed 64% of his passes. As a Giants fan, the thing that I always loved about Eli was even though he wasn't great, they at least tried to put up numbers with him at QB. And yes, he threw a ton of interceptions, but they won some shootouts that way too and had 6 top 10 offenses while he was QB.

    I feel like these teams that try to win by minimizing mistakes just guarantee that they have a bad offense. I think they're better off playing more risky and living with the extra turnovers. And hey, maybe the QB gets better!

    I just looked up Ben Roethlisberger... over his first 5 years he threw interceptions on 3.5% of his pass attempts and averaged 7.9 yards per attempt. Trubisky has thrown interceptions on 2.3% of his attempts and averaged 6.9 yards per attempt. I don't get how the Bears expect this guy to develop when he's playing with handcuffs on.

    Wow, the 4th down bots are saying that they dropped their chances of winning from 18% to 11% by punting there. That wasn't even close to the right decision.

    Didn't even need to know the math to know it was the wrong choice. 4th and 1 almost anywhere on the field is worth going for it many times, but in a playoff game and you're down that much?

    To top it off the Steelers take their sweet ass time on the last drive and another turnover while wasting time. GG.

    Makes it more impressive how clean the browns have played.

    Doubt it happens but hey Browns can you guys go on a Cinderella run to the AFC Championship?

    Sincrely, people who hate repeat champions.

    Almost identical to the titans decision earlier. And just as bad or worse. And that one was historically bad. Literally - they showed the percentages since like 2009

    Just think, if the Steelers didn't rest half a team last week and beat the Browns, they wouldn't have had their teeth kicked in by them again tonight.

    Instead they'd get their teeth kicked in by I think the Colts.

    Even if they'd have won, they'd still have been the 3rd seed. And actually, Pitt winning last week would have been enough for Miami to clinch the 7th seed, so they would have still ended up playing the #6, the Browns.

    I don’t even think Oklahoma has ever choked as bad as the Steelers did the 2nd half of the season.
