The state of our offensive line is terrible right now. Brady sacked three times on three man rushes in the first half alone. Just as well the defense has been lights out.

Jags and Panthers definitely game of the day so far.

You're only playing the Redskins, should be able to declare at 12-7!

Looking at the standings, i think the Fish have some stiff competition for the first round pick.
The Jets are looking particularly inept, as are the Skins and the Bungles.

Jets will pick up a couple of wins when Darnold returns. Pretty awful from Gase that he didn’t have Falk do a single snap in practise with the starters all week, certainly showing today.

Can’t help but admire the fight from the Steelers, lots of other franchises would go into tank mode down to the third string QB but they are still finding ways to hang tough.

it could come down to the Tank Bowl Bengals @ Dolphins Week 16 but the No1 pick should be interesting especially given the Afc East are scheduled against Afc North and Nfc East.

On the Bills another excellent Defensive performance kind of interesting that we are kind of bad in sacks and QB pressure Allen I think had a fairly good game only one really bad play and it sets us up for the bye really well as the O line was really beat up after the game so it give time for the to recover in time for the Dolphins

Very good road win that for Buffalo. The Titans can be a very awkward team to play against certainly on the defensive side even if I really have little time for Mariota on the other side.

Pats got the win and that’s really all that matters. Very poor first half and improved in the second once got the running game moving a bit. Quick turnaround before the Giants on TNF now.

On another note I really can’t get enough of Minshew and what he’s doing this year. Ok they lost narrowly to the Panthers but that was some special performance against a very tough defense.

yeah it is awesome what Minshew has done no argument at the moment he has been the best Qb drafted it does seem a lot of teams slept on him.

Spurs is a decent ground for the NFL, needs some work on a queue system for food/drink and needs more male toilets and cubicles but apart from that it's good.

I was amazed how bad the queues for food were. We left just before the two minute warning and 5 minutes into the second half, still hadn’t gotten halfway through the queue so gave up.

Left just after the 2min warning, had a piss then went to get food and by the time I had got it and back to my seat I missed the Bears first TD, which is the first TD I've missed in all the games I've been to which kinda pissed me off.

Jay Gruden is officially gone it will be interesting to see what the Redskins do going forward for the rest of the year but I am not suprised he is gone especially when that video surfaced.

To be honest in terms of that franchise although Gruden is far from the greatest coach the real issue there comes higher up with Snyder. Whoever takes that job next it’s a poisoned chalice.

All the stories I've heard about Snyder paint him as not only an awful owner, but a real seedy individual. Redskins are in an awful position for the rest of the season, there's a real lack of talent on the roster and some bad injuries too.

Yeah never seen anything positive mentioned with his name on the roster with them I wonder if there will be a final resolution to the Trent Williams situation (most likely a Trade)

Some beat writers in the US seem to think that Dan Snyder is high on Mike Tomlin which I wouldn't be averse to happening (so long as the compensation was worthwhile).

As for yesterday, Spurs' new stadium is far better than Wembley for view and atmosphere, it's far more intimate whilst at Wembley it often feels like you're really away from the action. Agreed on the queues for food and drink (running out of Beavertown after HT) but the longest I waited was 5 minutes or so into the 3rd quarter.

I actually stayed around inside the stadium until 10pm hoping that the queues at Seven Sisters had died down but that hadn't happened.

I wonder if that is more to do with not moving location. Other than Wembley the only London grounds I've been that had sufficient space on the concourse were Stamford Bridge and The Valley. The Valley although it's quite built up has a fair amount of space within the immediate vicinity, so was perhaps afforded the luxury of being able to make large concourses - and the one in the stand I was in was without doubt the best I've ever been on. Lovely to have a beer out in the open at half time in April. I wish more stadiums were like that. Stamford Bridge, was just about spacious enough but definitely at its limitations with 5,000 Town fans. The likes of Loftus Road, Selhurst Park and Griffin Park are ridiculous though when there's a sizeable following. I'm not sure if it's an old ground thing, or to do with being in London/being plonked right in the middle of loads of housing with barely enough space. I'm babbling on, but my point is that perhaps the stadium design was restricted by its location. Or was it not so much a space issue and more of a not enough staff/tills issue?

I’m going Sunday and my coach home Is leaving Victoria at 7:30. Was going to leave at 5:30, will that be enough time to get to Seven Sisters and get on a tube? I know it’s a 30 minute walk from the stadium to the tube, and it’s 20 minutes on the tube to Victoria.

Walk to Northumberland Park, about a 10/15min walk, get the 5:50 to Liverpool St which takes not even 20mins. Also stops at Tottenham Hale to change for the Victoria Line.

It took me just over an hour after leaving the stadium at 10 to get to St. Pancras so in theory, as long as you leave bang on at 5:30 you should make it to Victoria for 7:30.

Edit: I did also stop to get food too so that added 10 minutes onto my journey time.

Am increasingly believing that the Texans may just be the best team in the AFC right now. The Pats and KC have very obvious flaws that I think are becoming more apparent as time goes on.

Last couple of weeks have been very uncomfortable watching but we’ve a few key players missing and Mahomes isn’t 100% to be fair. Take nothing away from Texans obviously they’re a tidy team.

Also, fucking love Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Yep fair point. I think KC definitely need to look at that secondary though. If could somehow fit a trade for Jalen Ramsey I think that puts you over the top.

Good comeback by Miami. Even though it didn’t work I don’t hate the idea of going for two but that playcall on the 2 pointer on the other hand....

Son of Cod I think it will almost certain go to the last minutes of MNF. I do like your D/ST matchup though against a third string QB. Could get a lot of points there.

Spot on. With the exception of a couple of stand out players our entire D is not anywhere near the standard needed to mount a serious attempt. I’ve said it before but it’s been so frustrating that when we had a brilliant D our offense wasn’t quite there and now we have a great offense the D is just not up to it.

I'm not watching Red Zone or anything and your points just jumped up, did something happen or was it just your defence starting the match? Also, funny you mention that because I was really close to dropping the Chargers this week too. Had a waiver in for the Chiefs but cancelled it!

14 point deficit going in to the final quarter, pulled it back to 16-17, but instead of kicking the extra point, they went for the 2pt conv!! This surprisingly failed :ffs:.

Definitely going for the 1st round pick:mad:
