    I might take every single underdog to cover spot

    So,  the Falcons-Panthers game is the only one that both teams have something to play for? 

    Tue, Dec 26, 2017 8:19 PM

    Come on Buffalo.

    Why?

    Tomlin undecided on whether starters will play? Start them...let them play. If NE gets way ahead you can pull them.

    How bad would it look if Jets upset NE and Pittsburgh rested starters and Browns won lol?

    Teams that rest week 17, then get a bye...I feel like they don’t do well when facing a hot team that wins in week 17, then WC round. I definitely want them to start and play.

    John Harbaugh complaining the Ravens are playing the Bengals at 4:25 and worried it will affect their attendance and says NFL doesn’t care about them? WTH? He does understand that every team is playing at exact same time as others with same playoff implications? Smart by NFL. Dumb bitching on his end. Ravens, Bills, Titans, Chargers need same time slot...it guarantees a greater chance of viewing interest and suspense.

     

    Atlanta, Tennessee, Miami, Tampa Bay also all playing at 4:25 eastern time....none of them bitching

    Why?

    Family is from Buffalo. Probably follow them closest behind Cincinnati. I don't think they've been in since 1999?

    Yeah I don't get it other than a Harbaugh said it. NFL executives probably just rolled their eyes and thought STFU to themselves.

    The Patriots will beat the Jets by 30. It's going to be ugly.

    It looks like I might be wrong on Gronk going off, but Jets trail 21-3 at the half.

    That score could help Pittsburgh care a bit less and Browns...maybe

    Boy...Ravens sure didn’t look like a team playing for a playoff spot on that first drive. Cincy never even needed a 3rd down.

    Sun, Dec 31, 2017 5:27 PM

    Should the Vikings have been a 4:25 start?  I know they were pretty well locked it the 2 but knowing they’ve won the Rams have sat Goff

    Sun, Dec 31, 2017 5:44 PM

    Earth to Ravens...earth to Ravens, this gam is very important to you

     

    Lol why don’t they care?
