    Suddenly? You, sir, have not been following the Eagles as long as I have. The Eagles love to make games they should easily win into upset watches.

    I am expecting them to choke this game -- probably even to the point of losing. Why? I watched their last four games. I mean, I watched all their games, but the last four games are the meaningful ones here. The Eagles had a great season, and you can't have a great season without a good, full team. And in the last four games, I wasn't seeing that. They barely beat the Giants without the Giants' full roster on the field. The New Orleans game was embarrassing. The Bears game was embarrassing. A team as good as the Eagles should have thrashed a pair of teams with losing records, even with a backup QB.

    Their MVP being iffy is not helping. At all. You can make a great Thanksgiving dinner with no turkey and only side dishes, but people are going to leave disappointed and half of them will still be hungry.

    And you don't advance in the playoffs by kicking five field goals because you can't fucking penetrate the red zone. Hey, I respect Jake Elliot, but he shouldn't have had to be in that position. He had 15 field goals before that game, and 15 field goals in an entire season is either the sign of (a) a weak kicker, and no I don't think he is, or (b) a normally all-star offense that doesn't have to settle for three.

    What I need to see in this game to restore my confidence is the Eagles defense showing up to work on time. They have had so many sacks, like halfway between "record-setting" and "for the love of God, man, you've made your point" number of sacks. Also they've had a lot of interceptions. Also they have one of the lowest yards against in the game. Their defense is great...when it's on point. As expressed above less clearly, they haven't been 100% showing up recently. They need to be here tonight, they need to be at least their average if not better tonight, or the Giants will start scoring points that Hurts can't reliably top.

    The Eagles had a good season. No, fuck that, an amazing season. I would love to see them extend it. But as of now, I'm betting against it.

    Man, I think the Chargers would have worked against this hurt Mahomes. They actually have a pass rush. Too bad they lost to this dumb Jags team.

    Well Jacksonville had a real chance, kudos to them. Chiefs continue to look like a vulnerable 1 seed.

    Wow. That's like the third most wrong I've ever been in my life. Eagles won everything except the coin toss. Looks like Jalen is 100% after all, and the defense was on fire!

    Now imagine being a Vikings fan. They lost to this Giants team and there was no one that was surprised.

    Yeah if the Eagles play like that next week they might make the Super Bowl after all. Probably not to the tune of what was it 31-10 but definitely like 27-20.

    Well those games went about as expected, though I expected the Giants to put up more of a fight. That game was a slaughter, more than the score told. Maybe I was mislead by how big of frauds the Vikings were.

    Chiefs are a beatable team, especially with Mahomes injured. That ankle injury gonna suck a lot more next week than it did during the game yesterday, and he looked really banged up playing through it.

    Well he has 1 week to recover, this will not fully heal until the AFCCG but it should get better than yesterday. The chiefs need to get the defense right. It was better in the second half but the first half was abysmal

    It'll get worse due to swelling depending on what grade sprain it is. He got better because they loaded him up with happy pills. Maybe not Rodgers "My knee!" level of happy pills though.

    On the road against a better, more rested team, things can snowball quickly in the wrong direction. I think you want that ball in order to kind of have the first punch.
    Giants had the 3rd easiest schedule this year. They really might be more of a 7-9 team and shouldn't have been in the playoffs. Just that everyone else the NFC this year just sucked worse than the New Jersey Giants.

    The Chiefs have been playing down to their competition a lot this year. Beat the Broncos by a combined 9 points, went into OT with the Texans and the Titans in a Malik Willis start (so basically no QB), lost to the Colts and needed the Raiders to go for 2 and fail to not go into OT or lose to them. Feels like what the Steelers did when they didn't kind of suck. They will probably play better against the Bills or Bengals than against the Jags.

    Back in September it felt like the Bills were going to live up to being over hyped by the media. Obviously a lot has happened over the season. From here on out I feel like they can win or lose to any remaining team. No idea what Bills team will show up today.

    I remember at that time we thought whoever made it out of the three-headed monster that is the AFC would destroy the NFC sacrificial lamb.

    But honestly right now I'm starting to think nobody can stop the Eagles or the 49ers.
