It’s been really fascinating so far with no crowd listening to the calls at the line of scrimmage from both QB’s. Am just waiting for Grudens favourite of Spider 2 Y Banana.

That defensive pass interference which preceded the Chiefs 2nd TD was suspect at best.

Some things never change with the Raiders. Even before the Unsportsmanlike penalty Gruden had sent out the FG unit at the KC 1 yard line. Just dumb Football and you won’t ever beat KC doing that.

Seriously in 2020 how the hell is Joe Flacco still on an NFL team? That was horrendous from him especially as the Jets were looking good so far :lol:

Disappointing loss for the Pats and that's now definitely season over in terms of the division, will be an interesting battle between the Bills and Fins and right now I marginally favour the latter.

Captain Checkdown true to form on that pick 6 but then he occasionally realises hey I can chuck it downfield like during the 2012 Superbowl run and be successful with it. He’s still got the arm, I can’t quite gauge what caused Flacco to go so conservative.

Back in his Baltimore days at his best he used to be infuriating to play against when he went into jump ball mode just lobbing it up deep to Smith and Boldin to just blatantly draw the DPI call.

The tackling technique of the Chiefs D in so far as there have been attempts at it has been awful so far. Don’t remember it being this bad before.

That first paragraph sums up Big Ben this season, half the time he’s going downfield he’s baiting the defensive backs into DPI.

Deshaun Watson is just incredible. It's a real shame he plays for the Texans as if he was with any halfway decent franchise we'd be talking MVP here.

Got to think that this is Patricia's last season in Detroit also. He has been an absolute disaster and it's only because the GM is a former Patriots guy that he has hung on this long. I never rated him as DC in New England either, that defensive effort in the Eagles Super Bowl should have disqualified him from being considered for any position.

I will be amazed if Patricia is still Head Coach he was one of those most under the hot seat prior to this year Texans is a weird one I think they can turn it around fairly quickly depending first on who they get as Head Coach and free agency but there draft position is pretty much screwed trading away both there 1st and 2nd Rounders

Aye, as I say its a case of the good old boy network between him and Bob Quinn which has saved him so far. I suspect though Quinn may find himself out of work also having hitched himself to Patricia all through this. Just hope BB doesn't get any ideas about bringing him back. How poor he is even as a DC was exposed by Flores the season after with almost the same personnel and after that Belichick Jnr and Mayo.

The only way I can see the Texans recouping those picks that BOB pretty much blew would be if they were to shop JJ Watt before his production drops off. The good news for them is they have the QB and an elite one at that which is usually most of the battle.

For the second game it really is mind-boggling that two teams at 3-7 are about to do battle for the lead in the division. They should really take the NFCE playoff spot off them.

Nfc East is just one big dumpster fire I think it's a case of whoever wins the division loses given more than likely it is going to be one and done and they are giving up a top 10 pick

Yeah, its the situation where unless you get the #1 seed with HFA and the bye probably the sweetest number you can get is the #5 seed in the NFC playoffs as almost certainly would get whichever of these awful teams makes it. Of them all I think the Giants look the most impressive if can call it that certainly with no Dak for Dallas.

Lamar has tested positive for Covid pretty much a disaster for the Ravens I would imagine that Coach is getting fired for breaking protocols strength and conditioning coach is literally the worst coaching position to break covid protocols still it should be interesting to see how RG3 does.

The game will probably be deferred to Tuesday with the NFL hoping the outbreak can be contained, if not then who knows what happens.

On the strength and conditioning coach, absolutely he needs to be fired. That’s gross negligence of the highest order in a pandemic. Expect the Ravens to be fined and lose a consequential draft pick.

Had to happen with both of them really. In truth they lasted way longer than they should ever have been afforded the opportunity.

Denver now without any QB active for tomorrow due to Covid. Guess there is only one solution - Tebow Time*

*As well as make sure you stream any Defence in fantasy who are playing them tomorrow.

San Francisco can’t play their next 2 games in Santa Clara either...

Royce Freeman is the Broncos emergency QB and I would be well up for watching that.

Says on BBC a practice squad receiver will play at QB!

As kieran_vale says it's a good week to grab the Saints fantos defence. Glad I've already got them. :)

Yeah, Kendall Hilton. I’m hoping but not optimistic that no more Steelers players or coaches test positive.

Taking a WILD FLYER on Hinton in fantasy, wouldn't have if Elliott hadn't been so shit on Thursday, and probably also if Claypool wasn't such a risk now, numbers don't seem to be dropping so hard to see that game going ahead on Tuesday.

Next few weeks are going to be very interesting, looks like a lot of disruption ahead. Personally think they should stop the season and do the playoffs based on divisional records......:rolleyes:

Jets tanking again?

I'm not sure it's tanking they are just that inept from top to bottom. If I'm Trevor Lawrence I would seriously think about staying in college another year than go there after how they've ruined Darnold.

That Bills - Dolphins game on the last day of the season could be a division decider at this rate. Interesting to watch with my team not having a say in it for a change.

Very pleasing performance today so far by the Pats. The defence has come through very well so far compared to the way they got shredded last week.

Looking at the Raiders I don't get how they've gotten into a playoff position. Just seem distinctly unimpressive to me in so many ways.

Hinton should outscore your actual QB at this rate!

Josh Allen is doing his best here to give the Chargers the W.

Cam doing no better, horrible interception which will probably lead to another loss for us now. Only thing wil say is we are losing but its not for the lack of trying.

Edit - and now Herbert gives it back again. This is pretty compelling to watch.

That is one almighty fuck up on fielding that punt by the Vikings.
