Just lost for words on that onside kick. Not one of the Falcons made an attempt to compete for that ball.

Credit to Josh Allen, made some big time throws for the Bills tonight against the Fins.

Dan Quinn is surely going to be fired after that? To choke on that magnitude for the second time is unforgivable.

I think it’s more down to the fact KC will have been preparing all week for Tyrod but Herbert is having himself a nice game here. Suspect things will be more difficult once he’s got some tape on him but even so against the champs it’s not a bad start.

May well have been their game plan. Tyrod mystery injury... fair play.

Could well be Craig. Personally I prefer the more exotic tactics like deflating footballs and taping practises. Would never happen though:hypo:

I know the Texans have had the two nastiest opening fixtures you could have but they really are underselling the considerable talent they have. Used to say with Pittsburgh they always made less from more with AB and Bell etc but this is another level.

Can see a bit of Cam Newton in Herbert. A couple of times running the ball have seen him go through the Linebackers.

Never in doubt eh Craig One hell of a clutch kick though.

Looking forward to this in Seattle now. Don’t give us a massive shot as I just think they are the best team in the NFC but will be interesting to see how we approach this offensively. Be nice if we can develop the passing game a bit more.

That is NFL passing leader Josh Allen been really impressed with him in both games against the Jets and Phins definately looks like a Franchise QB at the moment and it was nice that the Offense can be leaned upon given the injuries we had at Linebacker with no Milano or Edmunds which definately effected pass coverage.

Even though the result wasn’t quite what would have wanted am really pleased with what the Pats offense showed. Opened up the passing game and it looked really good. Cam was throwing lasers all over the field and one absolute bomb which was completed to Edelman.

Just unfortunate we came up against a QB in Wilson who really should be in the conversation for best in the league. He was special last night.

As far as I am concerned Wilson is it's out of him and Mahomes for the best in the league personally I would rank Wilson as the best deep ball passer in the league.

Yep definitely co-sign that. The 50 yarder he threw to DK Metcalf (with Gilmore in coverage no less) was picture perfect. He throws almost a perfect rainbow each time on that and that is without even thinking about his rushing ability also. Incredible really as I remember when he first came in the league he was really considered a game manager who just had a role of working off the back of an all time great defense (in some respects similar to an early years Tom Brady).

Its for all the above that is the most pleased I’ve been after a loss in a long time. The fact we competed with a great team really is quite promising. And credit to N’Keal Harry last night, he took a monster hit off Diggs and the fact he both got up and still held the football was hugely impressive.

Okay, Creg is in at least so I've made a league.

"Your unique League code for TFF League is: LXZEPYMJ"

I've set it to start from Week 3 though coz it's a bit late now and some people might miss this and not get to predict the heavyweight Paul Brown derby tonight. So you have a week to join actually. :thumbs:

edit: link to join --> NFL Pick 'Em
Last gentle reminder for this before it starts with tonight's game. 6 of us in it up to now which is a good number but the more the merrier ofc.

Well that's a scoreline I didn't expect to wake up to. Dolphins looked good on the highlights though (yeah I know it's just the highlights) on both sides of the ball.

I don't think Dolphins are terrible plenty of good young talent on either side of the ball there should be plenty of teams ahead of them in the Draft. On the draft watched the Gators game Kyle Trask looked really impressive get the feeling he could follow Burrow in a similar rise in his draft stock probably not get no1 with Lawrence likely to declare

Oh aye, definitely not terrible. I just thought the Jags would see them off based in how close they ran the Titans last week.

Carson Wentz is getting worse each week.

The Raiders D is looking a bit better than I gave them credit for from what have seen so far.

Bills looking really good again glad we have our Linebackers back Also Davis in particular looks a really good pick up in the 4th round.

21 points conceded at home at the half, this team is a mess. All well and good blitzing with zone coverage but the Steelers have to get home.

Dominated near enough the whole of the second quarter apart from the last 30 seconds and the Raiders are back in it.

The great thing with Pats games these days is they seem to fly by with how much we run it nowadays.

I was 50/50 who I thought would win this before we kicked off. Never thought we'd be 28-3 up! Mind you, dangerous score that ain't it KevinMcallister
