Yes we lost and to be honest if it was me I’d have gone for it on fourth rather than try the 56 yarder but am proud of that team tonight. Mac Jones really announced his arrival on the big stage and really outplayed Brady. Our D kept Brady out of the end zone but ultimately came to one or two plays and they had the better of it.

Know there’s no such thing as moral victories but I feel good about this team after that tonight.

College ball was interesting yesterday Rattler draft stock looks like it's nose diving also hoping Riley Moss injury isn't as bad as it looks really want to see him drafted been far to long since an actual white Corner and then Bama actually losing to A & M.

The US gave us the Jets vs. Falcons so we gave them Aitch in return. Someone’s in the dog house with that talentless hack swearing his head off live at 4pm.

My first 3 fantasy picks this year, are currently out injured *sigh* Knew I should’ve picked Kamara first.

Great game between Browns and Chargers not much Defense but an awesome Offensive shoot out.

Great weekend for sport here. Bills smashed the Chiefs, Fury smashed Wilder, Stags didn't lose. Not sure what else I could ask for really.

Rattler has been dropping a fair bit since the start of the season and having seen him a couple of times I can see why. Not very convincing at all in a system which is extremely QB friendly.

Mentioned him before but the one I would earmark if I was on the clock is Ridder. Ticks all the boxes for me.

We had an ugly win against a garbage team. Not much to say other than got out of there with the W. Can’t imagine Urban Meyer is going to see the season out at this rate. He has been an absolute disaster. Should have known it would go this way from the moment he brought Tebow in to try as a TE in training camp that the NFL isn’t for him.

Think It's not really a strong draft for QB's Ridder is a good call but feel some teams are going to reach for a QB who is more than likely not worth it just glad we have our Franchise QB

On the Bills we look really strong No1 scoring Offense and Defense and was really impressive shutting down KC to 20 points and after the Titans we have a fairly easy schedule until the Buccs

I think the Bills have done very well apart from what looks like an outlier against the Steelers. The bigger takeaway from that game is KC are in a whole lot of trouble. You can’t play D the way they have this season and win championships. The problem is now that they are so bad on that side of the ball Mahomes is feeling compelled to force it and turn it over. I now think they are staring down the barrel in terms of winning their division.

Yeah i would agree Chiefs being in trouble think it could be a struggle to make the Playoffs I think it is already questionable if they can catch the Chargers which would mean Wildcard but even then they have little room for error.

Been incredible to watch this Gruden thing snowball the last couple of days. Quite rightly lost his job if for no other reason than using the homophobic slurs like he did how on earth could he ever face Nassib. That’s not in any way diminishing the seriousness of what else he said to note not least the racist remarks and very questionable comments about player safety.

Only thing would add is there is some serious hypocrisy going on here. Tampa this evening removed him from their ring of honor. Their prerogative but when you see this is a team that employs Antonio Brown do me a favour. And that’s not to mention the league not being forthcoming with their investigation into the WFT which is how this all came about in the first place.

Interesting games Jags getting there first win of the year really looks like the Phins are falling apart I expected to be a lot more competitive with us this year. Also watching the Chiefs game Mahomes had another ugly pick he really needs to stop trying the Hero ball and take the sack.

That 2nd pick from Mahomes was an awful decision, like he’d regressed back to his college days.

I’m giving Mahomes the excuse that he can’t trust his defense he has to try to try and force it. Certainly looks ugly but I think KC neglect of of the other side of the ball is catching up with them and it’s going to hurt them against quality teams.

Been a terrific performance by the Pats so far but I get the feeling BB’s conservatism is going to come back and bite us. Mac and Hunters connection is really developing nicely to take as a positive whatever happens second half.

What a game this is at Foxboro. Absolutely incredible, Mac Jones is going to end up rookie of the year I reckon.

Yeah it's been a really good game Patriots has played a perfect game defensively especially limiting the Cowboys explosive Offense.

That feels like a real kick in the balls. We’ve played so well there but just wasn’t to be.

Yeah Patriots did well especially defensively but I would like to see the Patriots open up the passing game for Jones at times it looked way to conservative

I do have to agree about the play calling from Josh and have done for a while to be honest. He just seems to very dated now. Mac at Bama was brilliant in a shotgun spread and running RPO’s and yet we have almost never used them once. When he was lined up in shotgun yesterday and passing it he was doing well but then straight away we go back to the tired old power run up the A gap from under centre.

Either way a Bills win tonight and that’s a huge lead at the top of the AFCE with nobody else in sight. Have to admit yesterday thought the Fins were shocking at times. They’ve been a huge letdown this season to the point I think Flores could start feeling some pressure.

Well that sucked couldn't stop Henry all night which seems really familiar from last year and something that needs improving defensively offensively thought we did really well moving the ball but we did seem to stall to much in the red zone so still work I feel to improve is needed for the Bye week.

Not been a half to remember for Mahomes I reckon. Said before though it’s hard for him as he probably feels he has to constantly play hero ball knowing his D can’t stop anyone.

Good half from the Pats, few players like Jonnu picking up injuries is not ideal though. Been his best game so far.

Think Hero balll has always been an element to Mahomes game last year he seemed to get away with a lot of it which is not happening this year also I think they could do with another receiver besides Kelce and Hill especially as D's have learnt to shut down the Chiefs big play Offense.

Aye, I think what they need to do is develop a running game to keep their own D off the field. Was thinking when they made a huge revamp on the O-Line in the off season that was the way they were going to go but apparently not.

One team who I’m really growing to like what I’m seeing is the Bengals. Probably a year too early for them but you can see that upward curve.

41-13 up and Mac Jones taking deep shots down the field to Kendrick Bourne. This is more like the Patriots I’ve always known. Shut it down now, no point risking anything for a fifty burger.

Today is a massive statement game for Burrow.

That Week 3 defeat to the Bengals isn’t looking quite so bad now, their defense is bona fide legit.

Without question, they are for real.

Our loss to the Fins on the other hand is looking worse by the week which is incredible really as at the time thought this was a really good team we are competing with. My guess is they'll be trading some first rounders, Tua and Xavien Howard by the end of the week for Deshaun.

Love this from the Lions!! Got to admit am rooting for Dan Campbell.

Kind of surprised at the scoreline but then it's the Jets on the Bengals yeah it's massively impressive seems Taylors seat has got significantly cooler On the Chiefs I think the danger is real they could miss the Playoffs entirely especially as they have Packers, Cowboys and Chargers they are at this point they can't afford to lose.

I’m sure I had the Dolphins as a playoff team in my preseason prediction so that’s looking awful right about now. Hard to gauge from RedZone but Tua seems too fixed on the first read rather than going through his progressions.

Sign me up for the Dan Campbell fanboy club. Love that he wears his heart on his sleeve, goes ballsy with the playcalling but most of all because I think he’s Bill Cowher’s illegitimate son.
