Think it’s a fair shout this Raiders team may be the worst team to come to these shores since the international series started, utterly useless on both sides of the ball.

Russell Wilson has been a joy to watch in fairness.

Back to .500 for the Texans.

The offensive line has been bad all season but tonight was something else, Watson had zero protection for pretty much the entire game. Thankfully the D turned it on for the last 2 minutes.

Forgot to swap out Dalvin Cook in my 1FF fantos this week, luckily Melvin Gordon has scored enough points for two RB’s.

Texans now tied for the division after being 0-3 :lol:

Thought the AFC South was supposed to be getting stronger.

Being one score up away at Lambeau in the 4th quarter ain't much different to being behind. Rodgers' comebacks always seem inevitable.

Nathan Peterman can piss off too.

Seriously, injuring Allen was the best thing our D could have done. Great on his feet and was giving us all sorts of problems when moving with the ball.
I dunno, figuring out how to stop him would have been better!

Peterman or Anderson is going to be wank for a weeks either way but I'm more sad about the potential long term effects of Allen's injury. Nobody seems to know yet.

Obviously he's not been the second coming of Dan Marino but if this hampers his career, it'll be a real shame for the kid. Hopefully I'm overreacting and he'll be fine. Am sure you felt the same with Deshaun last year.

Of course, never wanted to see the kid hurt but it was good to get him off the field! It seemed pretty innocuous at the time.

Read it may not be too bad and he’ll only be out for a few weeks.

I was impressed with him though, our D really struggled with him in the second half.

Hope he is only out for a couple of weeks because as you say, our season died with Watson’s injury last year. Unfortunately, our O-Line seem to be doing everything they can to get him another injury.

Absolutely loved that game at Wembley today, thoroughly entertaining. I know Vrabel will get some questions about going for two there but I completely am in favour. With the season virtually done with a loss you have to go for the win. Only thing I’d have done is give it to Henry or Lewis other than that applaud his boldness.

Buffalo have released the magical Nathan Peterman. Apparently his final passer rating was worse than if he'd have spiked the ball every play.

Who's your hunch for the Superbowl now then at over halfway through the season? Anyone outside of the Saints, Chiefs or Rams?

The Chargers have quietly got themselves the 4th best record in the league right now. Quietly to me anyway. Was surprised to see them there. I wouldn't rule the Patriots out either because it's the Patriots. Steelers probably AFC Championship game at most though, I guess.

Think all the teams are far from perfect. I wonder if the Chiefs will come unstuck come play-off time. Their defence has been an issue all season and I wonder if Mahomes can keep up this pace for the next 6 weeks plus the play-offs. All it takes is for fatigue or a slight injury to set in and they are in real trouble.

Hope it doesn't mind, would love to see them make the Superbowl over the Pats or Steelers. Glad to see we probably won't be getting a repeat from the Eagles or an appearance from the Jags. Lots of unlikeable teams in the AFC.

As for the NFC, the Saints and Rams going head to head in the Championship game would be sweet. My bet is Saints v Chiefs, with the Saints winning.

Sad to see the legend is no more in Buffalo, it was fun. Hopefully the Jets get in there and sign him.

Chargers look the most rounded team in the AFC and have to admit I would love to see Phil get to a Super Bowl if only to help rubber stamp his way into the hall of fame. Chiefs I just think they are vulnerable on defence and when it gets cold and the offence slows down a bit can see them coming unstuck. Can see Houston causing teams trouble in the post season so maybe them as an outlier, certainly playing with a lot of momentum right now.

Seen enough of the Pats this year and while we might get to the AFC Championship game that is really as far as this team goes. Too many weak links all over particularly defensively which the Titans exploited easily on Sunday.

Ultimately the Saints look the best shout to win it all for me. Look a bit more tough to score on than the Rams.

Just how the hell any team can compete with this Saints offense is beyond me. And to top it off they are proving more than handy on the other side of the ball too.
