These refs holy hell
Atrocious call against Green Bay on Mahomes but they pass interference was way worse. Wow.
Then missed him going backwards OB and stopped clock
Assing up every call
8 teams would’ve been perfect this year
133 teams….4 make the “playoffs”
Committee got it right - despite the horrible limitations of the four team playoff. If I were an FSU fan, I’d be pissed. But objectively, I think these are the right four teams.
I hope Alabama woodsheds Michigan.
It's too bad there's no expanded playoff this year. I think any of the top 8 or 9 teams could win it all. Definitely no clear favorite.

Less than a minute into the Texas/OkSt game, it is obvious the officials are biased toward getting the league's highest ranked team the victory!

Awful way to end it. Not sure how OSU didn’t have a better QB on their roster. Does Day survive this?

His second INT was one of the worst I’ve ever seen from him. Just a terrible decision.
Still to this day though the only person on planet earth to intercept Joe Burrow 2x in one game was my neighbor 2 years ago lol. A very average 5’9 CB and Joe was a young sophomore ….the next year he waxed us 42-0 and then fortunately they skipped leagues and we didn’t have to lose by 70 his senior year
Jets haven't scored a TD since the Pennington era.

Trying not to be irrationally pissed at Tyler Boyd
I was much more upset with Boyd in the 3rd qtr, on the Bengals 1st possession of the game when they were not tied or in the lead, after Tex got FGs on the last possession of the 1st half and then 1st possession of the 2nd half. Bengals had 2nd and 8, and Burrow threw a perfect pass to Boyd open coming over the middle several yards past the line to gain, with lots green ahead, probably at least a 30 yd gain well into Tex territory. And oops, the pass went right thru Boyd's hands to the turk, sack the next play, punt, and Tex goes right down for a demoralizing TD, and the Bengals had lost any semblance of control of the game!
The bad, bad pick thrown ill advisedly by Stroud started the Bengals comeback and opportunity to get back control of the game by taking a 4 point lead under 2 minutes if Boyd makes the short TD catch that was right in his hands that you are referring to.

What a coach! What a character!

Jax rookie running back loses the handle on a running play about the time his knee is down. Original call was down by contact, then they change it to fumble so the turnover can be reviewed without challenge. Review shows it too close to reverse, so it stands as a fumble. Shouldn't revert to standing on the original down by contact, no fumble, rather than the contrived ruling on the field of fumble? Why don't they be more fair and make the rule that a turnover or possible turnover is automatically reviewed?

Without Sauce and DJ Reed I thought the Jets were toast. To hold Philly to 14 with backup CBs is wild and I couldn't be happier going into the bye week.
To be 3-3, without Rodgers, after playing the Bills, Chiefs, Eagles, Cowboys, and Patriots (Zach and the Jets eternal nemesis), is pretty incredible.
Philly's decision didn't pay off, and I don't think that the Jets pondered it, just ran it in with the opportunity. It would have been interesting if the RB went down short of the goal and Philly called TO after 1st and 2nd downs, if the Jets would have tried for the TD on 3rd down.
They took the 8, forcing Philly to get a TD to win with 1:46 and 2 TOs. Compare to running 3 plays and taking the FG for a 1 point lead and then Philly having 35 sec and no TOs to get a FG to win.
Will the Jets sit on their big break?
49ers should’ve used their timeout with 30 seconds left
Crazy to settle for a 41 yard FG for a rookie on the road.
Ugly games for officials….games aren’t called like this in December and playoffs.

4th and 25 with 2:07 left deep in own territory and Chiefs go for it (have all 3 timeouts)…Mahomes scrambles chin self clear and throws a ridiculous pass across the field as he gets drilled and receiver jumps too late and misses ball.
I can’t recall a worse game by a receiving cor
The incomplete pass on 4th down hit the turf with 2:01 left. KC should have challenged to put the clock at 2:01 so Detroit would have had to run a play before the 2 minute warning and KC would have saved a time-out.
