Am I the only one leaning towards the Ravens over the Bills at this point? I know they're a solid team, but I was not impressed with them in that Colts game...they probably deserved to lose. Now you got a red hot Ravens team coming in with Lamar Jackson finally looking like the MVP version of him...I dunno man.

Was the Ravens win any more impressive than the Bills win? People are acting like the Ravens curb stomped the Titans when the Titans had the ball with a chance to tie with under 3 minutes left, just like....the Colts had. It's a close matchup, but we all know the handicap we apply to any Ravens game: If they get behind 2TDs they are basically screwed, if they keep it close they are dangerous. But given how zoned in Allen is right now, you gotta like the Bills chances. The Bills weakness right now is trying to force the run game, when they did that Saturday the Colts got stops. When the Bills let Josh throw they had their way with a good Colts D.

Absolutely I wanted Seattle. Plus that way I hoped the Bucs could do the Saints a favour and take out the Packers (I like the Bucs odds of winning in Lambeau a lot more than Saints), then we could do this Brady vs Brees matchup next weekend with a direct trip to the Super Bowl on the line, instead of this weekend. Rams will be interesting up there too, I wanted no part of the Rams defensive front in the Wild Card.

And yeah, I hear ya on the past being the past. Gonna be a whole week of hearing about how hard it is to beat a team 3 times in 1 season... Will be a fun matchup for sure, I love the Lattimore vs Evans rivalry.

I'm hoping to see an AFC North championship game. Baltimore vs Cleveland.

First thought is that I like the dogs to cover in all 4 of these games. I think Green Bay and KC win, bit KC doesn't beat anyone by 10, and I think the Rams D might keep that game close.

I like the Ravens and Bucs to win outright. The Bucs were awful the last time vs the Saints, but I have a hard time seeing Brady lose to the same team 3 times in one season. The Ravens did struggle early, but after that run by Lamar they controlled that game, but that's two teams both playing well. I expect these two are the best games this weekend.

I want the Chiefs to win, but if it's Buffalo and Cleveland next week, that would still get my interest.

My brother has been a Browns fan since the '99 expansion I think, and has watched so much terrible football all this time, but he is through and through a Browns fan. I know he's been to Cleveland to see a game. One of my favorite memories was him coming to visit me in 2005 in Toronto when I was at school to take the bus to seem them vs the Bills.

It was like -20 and blizzarding, and it was freaking insane. Busses in the parking lot as far as you could see, bbqs bigger than most people's cars, footballs being thrown around everywhere, booze flowing freely. God bless America.

I was a caual Rams fan for a while, picked them up because they had the best pass offence on NFL 2k4. I kind of stopped caring a long time ago. But this year, this year is something special. I feel so happy for my brother, and I am thorougly on the bandwagon. If they can get by the Champs, anything is possible.

Also, the tweet of the video of Big Ben crying on the bench is worth a banner by itself.

When you consider that Mahomes, Watson, Allen, Jackson, Mayfield...plus Herbert, Burrow, Tagovailoa and soon to be Trevor Lawrence and possible another top pick from this draft are all in the AFC right now. I have to think the AFC is going to dominate the Superbowl for the next few seasons. Overall the AFC teams have a much better track record of QB drafting in the past 5 years than the NFC teams seem to. Do the likes of Murray, Wentz, Goff, Trubiski, and Jameis Winston measure up to the AFC guys? I think not.

Couple days old so you've prob seen it by now, but pretty funny. Frank Caliendo did his own ''Morgan Freeman'' voiceover for it as well.

Mayfield vs. Mahomes, 2016:

https://www.clevelandbrowns.com/news...bMeJwGd0CeUhsg

Quote:
The Sooners won 66-59. Mayfield threw for 545 yards and seven touchdowns, an OU record. Mahomes broke the FBS record with 819 total yards of offense and 734 passing yards, and the two sides combined for a mind-blowing 1,708 yards of offense, also an FBS record.

Goff will be starting for the Rams...Wolford has been ruled out with a neck injury.

Now he's spouting off like he was wronged. I don't think the Chiefs wanted to cut a guy who lead the league in rushing the previous year and was on pace for like 1750 scrimmage yards and 20 touch downs when they did it.

Funny though no one seems to remember now what he did, even if the Woman who provoked him is a piece of garbage herself. At least the domestic abuser that they still employee is damn good at football..too bad it's not two fo them.
