The early window of games yesterday was immense. Big game this evening for us versus the Bills. It's season over if we lose. Not that is a real chance of us doing much but sneaking into a play-off would be nice

From this season onwards they will give higher draft picks to teams that hire staff like coaches etc. that are POC. That's really not fair towards white people as many teams will hire less skillful POC staff just so they can benefit from draft picks. And I don't need to remind you about what happened in Kaepernick era. Stuff like that just turns me away from the sport.

NFC West has turned out to be a really interesting division - and certainly the strongest. Clearly you have to win all of your remaining games, and it will have to involve Rams winning both of their remaining divisionals - but I think the real problem is the Seahawks having to lose against either the Jets or Washington.

Not sure how to separate the two teams on 10-6 as they would have both won a division game against the other team, I can't remember how it's worked out. Anyway...

Seahawks:
Dec 13 W v New York Jets
Dec 20 W @ Washington Football Team
Dec 27 L v Los Angeles Rams
Jan 3 L @ San Francisco 49ers

Rams:
Dec 10 L v New England Patriots
Dec 20 W v New York Jets
Dec 27 W @ Seattle Seahawks
Jan 3 W v Arizona Cardinals

Cards:
Dec 13 W @ New York Giants
Dec 20 L v Philadelphia Eagles
Dec 26 L v San Francisco 49ers
Jan 3 L @ Los Angeles Rams

Niners:
Dec 7 W v Buffalo Bills
Dec 13 W v Washington Football Team
Dec 20 W @ Dallas Cowboys
Dec 26 W @ Arizona Cardinals
Jan 3 W v Seattle Seahawks

I think that makes it...

Rams 11 5
Seahawks 10 6
Niners 10 6
Cards 8 8

Anything can happen - take last night for instance - the Giants stink and they managed the W.

We were very bad. It's almost like they lost to keep Saleh from going to Detroit!

Washington Vs The Giants for the NFC East :D I think the FT would have a better chance in the play-offs than the Giants, that's a proper defense that they have

In 3/5 Superbowls in Fantasy. It should be 4/5 but took a "flyer" on Goff instead of Murray . . . oh dear. Decent reasoning but eh, no.

Sorry 55 years old New Yorker all my life and American Football and Politics don't mix. People watch sports to get away from the politics. Democrats and Republicans get along fine on a with wings and beers when they are rooting for the same team. I do agree there is definitely more grandstanding this year along with greed

Where did you come up with that myth about draft picks

I actually wasn't that offended by the farce. I had read before the game that they were planning to give Sudfeld some snaps, so that pretty much erased any hope I had - not that I had a lot of hope in the Eagles to win in normal conditions anyway.

Big weekend coming up, not sure I can monopolise the TV all weekend so if I'm forced to pick and choose I'm definitely making sure that I see Ravens @ Titans in the 18:00 Sunday slot! Just been eyeing up some betting opportunities and I fancy Washington to get closer to Tampa Bay than the bookies are suggesting (7.5)...

Looking for to Bills and Colts the most. I think it will start close with the Bills pulling away in the end. Colts have done well against RB's this year in general but not so good against mobile QBs. I think there's a bigger gap between the top and bottom of the AFC than the NFC

Browns 28-0 up in the 1st quarter against the Steelers, a new record play-off lead in a quarter!

4 of the 6 games were dreadful

Bears @ Saints was certainly a tough watch, I maybe had football fatigue as I ended up double-screening so I could play the PS4 haha.

Ravens Vs Titans was poor too. The opening 20 minutes of Rams Vs Hawks was awful
