That was the most obvious pass interference I have ever seen. How can you not call that?

The most hilarious part was the two officials at the end who called different things - one called a TD and the other a touchback.

It's a zero-sum game so the officiating doesn't matter with respect to the outcome (unless they're being paid off, or rooting for one team or another).  What does matter is that the game has become a complete farce.  The only reason to watch it now is to see what the officials will screw up next.  :popcorn:

Because it was a judgement call.

but a reviewable judgement call


Full Statement from the NFL:

In Monday's game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, Seattle faced a 4th-and-10 from the Green Bay 24 with eight seconds remaining in the game.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw a pass into the end zone. Several players, including Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate and Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings, jumped into the air in an attempt to catch the ball.

While the ball is in the air, Tate can be seen shoving Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields to the ground. This should have been a penalty for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game. It was not called and is not reviewable in instant replay.

When the players hit the ground in the end zone, the officials determined that both Tate and Jennings had possession of the ball. Under the rule for simultaneous catch, the ball belongs to Tate, the offensive player. The result of the play was a touchdown.

Replay Official Howard Slavin stopped the game for an instant replay review. The aspects of the play that were reviewable included if the ball hit the ground and who had possession of the ball. In the end zone, a ruling of a simultaneous catch is reviewable. That is not the case in the field of play, only in the end zone.

Referee Wayne Elliott determined that no indisputable visual evidence existed to overturn the call on the field, and as a result, the on-field ruling of touchdown stood. The NFL Officiating Department reviewed the video today and supports the decision not to overturn the on-field ruling following the instant replay review.

The result of the game is final.

Applicable rules to the play are as follows:

A player (or players) jumping in the air has not legally gained possession of the ball until he satisfies the elements of a catch listed here.

Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3 of the NFL Rule Book defines a catch:

A forward pass is complete (by the offense) or intercepted (by the defense) if a player, who is inbounds:

(a) secures control of the ball in his hands or arms prior to the ball touching the ground; and

(b) touches the ground inbounds with both feet or with any part of his body other than his hands; and

(c) maintains control of the ball long enough, after (a) and (b) have been fulfilled, to enable him to perform any act common to the game (i.e., maintaining control long enough to pitch it, pass it, advance with it, or avoid or ward off an opponent, etc.).

When a player (or players) is going to the ground in the attempt to catch a pass, Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 1 states:

Player Going to the Ground. If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball throughout the process of contacting the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete.

Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 5 states:

Simultaneous Catch. If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both players retain it, the ball belongs to the passers. It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains joint control. If the ball is muffed after simultaneous touching by two such players, all the players of the passing team become eligible to catch the loose ball.

A replay official can't determine possession. They could have declared it an incomplete pass, but they can't go to the booth to determine which player is in possession.

So yes, the simultaneous possession call was bullshit, but once the call of touchdown was made, there was nothing that could be done.

I think you guys are underplaying the power of Goodell.  Remember that he controls the day to day ops, but he also has to build consensus between a very manic group of owners.  If he is smart, and I think he is, he has a crap load of power just by playing owners and groups of owners into his interests.  Evidence: see the player lock out.

Thinking of the Cowboys gets me thinking about some of the most painful fanbases in professional sports.  They're perennial favorites in August and consistently crap the bed when it gets down to it.  As a fan, I think it's worse to experience success and never succeed again than to never win anything at all.  You can probably throw the Chiefs in there too, except expectations never seem to be that high I suppose.  Who else belongs in this category?  New York Knicks?  Minnesota Twins?

Quarterbacks (current) who would've won that game considering they got 2 return TDs and were at home and had the ball in OT.

DEFINITELY YES
Brady
Brees
Big Ben
Manning, ELI
Rodgers

PROBABLY
Ryan
Romo
Rivers (yes, Rivers probably wins that game)


Feel free to add to the list because I got bored thinking of quarterbacks I'd rather have in a close playoff game than Peyton Manning (more like WOmanning)

Welker was pretty good in Miami with 0 QB play, and Cassel looked like trash in New England. I had Moss on my Fantasy team that year.

I guess you could say that but Moss has records from that season. It was one of the best seasons in NFL WR history...

I think the Pats realized that if you have a good QB he can make the WRs better. They don't spend a whole lot on them (even Moss, IIRC) and it generally works. Sure, let Welker go, plenty of good receivers want to play with Brady.

After a month of silence, Christian Ballard opened up Tuesday regarding the reason he walked away from the Minnesota Vikings in training camp.
The former defensive lineman told USA Today that he wasn't enjoying life in the NFL anymore.
The revelation came less than a week after Ballard was arrested on suspicion of domestic battery following a dispute with his wife at their Lawrence, Kan., home, according to USA Today. The district attorney dropped the case without filing charges, the newspaper reported.

Unsportsmanlike conduct in Seattle
Was anyone else appalled by the unsportsmanlike conduct of the Seattle Seahawks and their fans, juiced on noise, which surely creates as big an advantage over an opponent as any performance enhancing drug and which, to their shame, NFL officials turn the same blind eye they have to concussions and drugs ("Seattle states case loudly, clearly in rout," Sports, Sept. 16)?

It would be simple to fix. Seahawks players and managers would ask their fans to cease and desist, and the NFL would implement a new rule: The visiting team may stop the game when fan noise is greater than a specified decibel level, and should this rule be violated in more than three games, no home games will be played at the offending field for the rest of the season, including playoff games. Things would quiet down.

At a time when the world seems sour, sports give us a place of joy, community and hope, and to have it spoiled is a bigger loss than it seems on the surface.

Well, there is a rule against excessive crowd noise in the NFL. I remember hearing about it when I was a kid and think I saw a team get penalized for it once.


Quote
Jerry, I enjoy your column. It's great to get an insider's point of view during the season. What has happened to officials penalizing the home team if the fans are making too much noise for the visiting quarterback to call signals? I used to see it once or twice a season, but I think it's been decades since I've seen it called. --Seth Greeley, Houston

There is a rules procedure set up for crowd noise when the visiting team cannot hear signals because of the noise. If, in the opinion of the referee, and after a signal from the quarterback, the noise is so loud that play cannot continue, the game is stopped and an announcement is made to the crowd in an attempt to quiet things down. After a second announcement and an appeal to the home team to assist in quieting the crowd, and if the noise does not subside, the home team is charged a timeout. The only time a 5-yard penalty would be assessed is when the home team is out of timeouts. This is a very complicated procedure, and you are correct in that it has not been used in years. The quarterbacks are experts at dealing with crowd noise and rarely, if ever, appeal to the referee. The quarterback knows that if he does not get the play off because of the disturbance, that the crowd will get louder. Consequently, quarterbacks find a way to let the game continue, regardless of the noise. I am glad that you enjoy the column. I enjoy writing it, very much.

"N-word penalty". This seems like a PR nightmare in waiting for the nfl. The rule itself makes the league look good, but imagine the media shitstorm surrounding the first team to be penalized. I can't believe the players association isn't throwing a fit.

Obviously, it's wrong for players to say that on the field. But the offending team is going to make the player go through "counseling" or suspend him just to save face. It should have just been added to unsportsmanlike conduct.

Goodell is probably too busy covering his own ass on this to do anything timely. The Ravens should cut him, but they won't.

We can all agree that what he did was wrong and Rice deserves to be punished, so this is strictly from a business standpoint... How do you justify to your fanbase (approx 1/2 women) that you are willfully employing this guy?

44% is larger than I anticipated. I wonder if there is a large portion of the fanbase that views this as a team issue, rather than a league issue.

The Baltimore Ravens, who are still pretending they hadn't seen video of Ray Rice slugging his fiancée until this morning, despite evidence to the contrary, just announced in a one-sentence press release that they have cut Rice.

Update, 2:43 p.m. EDT: The NFL, also claiming it never saw the video, has suspended Rice indefinitely.

I kind of want to weigh in as a woman.

What he did was horrible, no doubt and if I was in that position, well let's just say I'd never be with a man who would put me in that position. 

However, she did not want to press charges.  This is a personal matter between them.

If Ray Rice was Joe Bag O'doughnuts, no one would have cared, it would have been a private matter and the guy's employer would have never even found out.  Only his "celebrity" has made this an issue.  I can see why the Ravens would have wanted to sever ties with a woman beater, due to the court of public opinion, but at the same time his wife made an excellent point.

Ray Rice has already made more than enough money to live comfortably.  More money than 99% will make in their entire life.  I hope he gets help for his anger and can in turn help others in the future.  We live in a country of second chances and he will most likely play again somewhere.

I'm happy that he may help to serve as an example to the nearly 2000 roster and practice players, owners, execs, and countless staff that this behavior will not be tolerated and there are real consequences for their actions. I hope Goodell is next to go.

They claim no special treatment.  Although I don't believe that someone who does an aggravated assault rather than a simple domestic assault would get the same crack at their diversionary program.

I kind of want to weigh in as a woman.

What he did was horrible, no doubt and if I was in that position, well let's just say I'd never be with a man who would put me in that position. 

However, she did not want to press charges.  This is a personal matter between them.

If Ray Rice was Joe Bag O'doughnuts, no one would have cared, it would have been a private matter and the guy's employer would have never even found out.  Only his "celebrity" has made this an issue.  I can see why the Ravens would have wanted to sever ties with a woman beater, due to the court of public opinion, but at the same time his wife made an excellent point.

yeah what sucks is that non-celebrities get to keep their job for knocking their wives out cold, not that Ray Rice lost his.

yeah anyone who says aggravated domestic assault is a personal matter between the two is pretty rough ridin' silly.  It is a public matter, especially when it is done in public.  We have laws in this country for a reason.  Ray Rice is a threat to society.

A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive three months ago, while league officers have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week.

The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."

The one thing I enjoy about these types of events is how various individuals get all one uppy in displaying their "outrage".

The new societal norm is that if you're not completely outraged and demanding that heads roll, congressional investigations be launched and the entire impacted organization be overhauled from top to bottom than in some or fashion you are siding, sympathizing, or actually agreeing with the perp and their action(s).

It's hilarious.

If you forcefully restrain anyone and beat them to the point that they have cuts and bruises, then you're going to be in trouble with the law. When it's a physically imposing adult doing it to a defenseless child, then it becomes a really big problem. I'm a proponent of physical discipline, but you don't have to get anywhere close to leaving marks to get your point across.

The Cowboys have 2 MVP contenders in Murray and Romo.  However, given that QBs almost always win the award, I think Romo will be your 2014-2015 NFL MVP. 

Why you ask? Despite managing a surgically repaired back, Romo leads the league's quarterbacks in completion percentage (70.3), yards per attempt (8.49) and passer rating (114.4).  Romo has thrown for 3,406 yards with 32 touchdowns and only eight interceptions, leading the Cowboys to an 11-3 record in games that he has played.

Remember how the Cowboys/Romo always melt down in December and end up 8-8? Dallas is 3-0 this month in large part due to Romo completing 79.2 percent of his passes for 688 yards and 10 touchdowns with no interceptions. 

Romo leads the NFL this season with an 82.3 Total QBR, while his Total QBR in the second half or OT is on pace to be the league's best in nine years. Remember how Romo can't close out games and is not clutch?  Check out his digits in the 2nd Half/OT in 2014:

Comp %:   69.4   (Best)
TD-Int:   15-3   (Best)
TD pct:   9.4   (Best)
Total QBR:   91.1   (Best)

BTW, he just passed Aikman for all-time passing yardage.

The 'Boys are Back.

Romo won't win the MVP, but he should. The numbers you posted speak for themselves. For those of you who like to rely on the "eye test" just go look at the Washington and Arizona games when Romo was out. If you take Rogers, Brady, and Watt off of their teams their record wouldn't drop nearly as much as if Dallas lost Romo.

I mean, its hard to believe I'm at a point where the most positive sports fan thing I have going is the Cowboys.

Granted, I don't really care about the Cowboys that much anymore. I don't go out of my way to watch and I don't own a single piece of Cowboys apparel.

But let me tell you, there was a time the Cowboys were the only team I really cared about. The earliest game I can clearly remember cheering for a team was in 1985 when the Cowboys played the LA Rams in the playoffs and Eric Dickerson ran for 200+ yards while the Cowboys got shutout. I remember joining the Dallas Cowboys fan club. I remember in 1989 when the Cowboys won one game over the Redskins on Sunday night football. I remember a great playoff win in Chicago before Barry Sanders ran roughshod over the Cowboys a week later. I got a Cowboys Starter jacket my senior year of high school and vividly remember the playoff run and Super Bowl victory and 2 more the next 3 years while I started at K-State. Eventually K-State surpassed the Cowboys, especially as Jones continued to put his input into the organization and bury it. The last 10 years I have followed them nominally at best and really am probably more of a Chiefs fan now.
 
However, the Cowboys now have their first playoff victory since 09 and I'm sure I'll be sorely disappointed in a week when they get killed by Green Bay, but right now I'm going to enjoy the moment.

Still pretty pissed that they ruled it not a catch. The part that bothers me is that the call on the field was overturned. If it was so conclusive that it wasn't a catch then why do so many people seem to disagree?

Had it been ruled incomplete by the official standing 5 feet away from the play then this situation would be much different.

The mechanism is horribly subjective, to the point that the refs would have been completely justified in ruling either way. FFS, the part of the rule that describes a "football move" contains "etc".

Yeah, the key difference between this one and the Calvin Johnson example is whether or not Bryant was making a football move (plus Johnson really only took 2 steps with the football). I think he was reaching for the pylon which should be a football move.

i hate how you have the prove the ruling on the field wrong. if they have to go to replay, it should mean the ruling on the field isnt adequate enough to make the right call. the rules need to change...

I've got to address the stupidity of the "analysis" making the rounds on twitter of this clip.


Richardson may not be a very good back, I'm not sure because I don't really watch the Raiders or the NFL. Much of the NFL running game allows for backs to use their "vision" and find holes because they used zone blocking schemes, however this plays is not one of them. There is clearly a pulling guard and any good back is supposed to trust the scheme and go with the puller. This play was designed to go between the right tackle and tight end with a puller, classic power football. However, the play is blown up because the tight end gets crushed. And, if Richardson had cutback to go between the center and right guard, the unblocked inside linebacker would have tackled him for no gain. You can see the ILB doing his job as he reads the pulling guard through to the back, any decent NFL linebacker will be able to come off his initial key if the back cuts back and make that play. The bashing of Richardson based on this play is just really stupid.

I don't get giving the chargers (and subsequently the raiders) the option to move.  If the nfl was cool with, or wanted, 2 teams in LA, they should've voted on a plan that puts 2 teams there.  Now essentially one guy, the rams owner, decides if he'll have a 2nd team in LA competing w/him because he can price them out of moving into his stadium.

He was shot once in the chest and 7 times in the back, after two bullets already struck his wife.  I doubt self-defense is going to win this thing.

Did you see the video? Smith with the hit and run. Gun in his car. Both pulled over. Smith reaches in. I shot in self defense. He's got a decent case, whether it's true or not. The video shows it.

He followed him and called 911 to get the license plate number. They have it on record. I don't have a dog in the fight, but this guy isn't getting locked up for life.

Kinda hard for Smith to prove he knew a gun was in the glovebox.  Only video shows him getting hit and then he chased him.  From there all we know is he shot 10 bullets that hit human beings, killing one immediately and hitting a woman twice.  You can't shoot someone because they reach into something, unless your a cop.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the state is charging him with manslaughter, so he wouldn't be going to jail for life anyway. But he'll be doing time.

Agree with cRusty.

Not a big Cowboys fan, but Jerry Jones only "made" Arlington pay for the infrastructure around AT&T stadium, the roads and such, he didn't make them pay for the stadium itself.

I could be mistaken, but I think that deal has worked out well for the City of Arlington relative to the number of large events AT&T Stadium now attracts.

San Diego only dropped below 60K a game this year after years of really not doing anything.   Otherwise they've averaged 65K a game for as far back as I care to look.   Admittedly their %'s relative to number of seats available is on the lower side in the NFL, but the Murph has always been too big for that market and that demographic.   Plus you'd have to say their attendance may have been impacted by the fact that a lot of seats at the Murph are crap, as it was originally a multi-purpose stadium.    There's no indication that they couldn't build and fill a 65K seat dedicated football stadium at 90% plus of capacity on a regular basis in San Diego.

You can build a decent stadium, even in urban California and not need to spend a billion dollars.

I agree that its a waste to pay for a stadium, but I do care because I consider pro sports teams a part of the fabric of any big city, so it sucks to see that relationship undervalued by team owners. I mean I'm not going to lose sleep or anything

Not really, they're pretty regional and the area around the stadium is pretty lame. People are much more connected to the A's.

Also I think all cities should stop paying for stadiums. If everyone stopped everyone would keep their teams.

This is where I'm glad the NFL and Cowboys/Chiefs are way down the list for how much I invest as a fan. I wanted both to win yesterday, but I had fun with it while tweeting a ridiculous amount of gifs. I probably couldn't do that with Cat FB/BB. Maybe with the Royals a little bit because of the long season, but not in the playoffs. My investment in those 3 teams is simply much greater and today I really don't care that much that both lost.

Of course part of my disinterest in the NFL and those teams comes from the last 20 or so years. Neither has really competed for a Super Bowl. The Cowboys have won 3 wildcard games and the Chiefs one, neither has made an AFC/NFC title game. Each has had sporadic seasons of success, winning divisions and scraping into the playoffs as wildcards, but even in their best seasons (this year for both really), they aren't a threat and are gone after one game when earning a bye. I suppose if either really competed for a Super Bowl appearance my interest as a fan would increase, but they are both pretty futile as NFL franchises since the mid 90s.

The 3rd & 20 pass with :03 left is going to sting for a very long time. Who knows what would have happened in OT, but that was a top 5 KITN play for me as a sports fan. Off the top of my head only Sirr Parker and the Romo botched hold are worse.

Just an awful couple of weeks as a 'Cats/'Boys fan. The Walk Chalk, Tech ending, and 3rd & 20 combination has me considering dropping sports altogether and taking up woodworking or something.

Yeah, the play were the Packers center tackled Irving way before Rodgers got the throw off was pretty rough. I have no idea why the LB didn't sprint to the edge to contain Rodgers though, he had way too much time (again). The right DE comes inside the tackle, the LB had to have contain from the start, but he pauses on the way. Just dumb.

I also have no idea why Zeke didn't get the ball more. I don't know why we spiked it on the last drive. The dumb substitution penalties in the first quarter. There was just so much dumb on the part of the Cowboys in that game.

And Rodgers was ridiculous.

I think that for me, I just watch way too much college football on Saturdays to invest much time watching the NFL on Sundays. I will watch a few Chiefs games over the course of the season, and I tune in for the playoffs. I'm just not invested enough to care that much when they lose, though.

Julio makes ridiculous catch. 4:40 left in game, 1st and 10 at 22 yd line. Your RBs are ave 6 yards per carry. Run the ball or make quick safe passes, that have very small chance at sack or TO.  If you don't get a 1st down, you kick a Extra point length FG try to go up 11 pts.  With NE likely taking 2 TOs, there would be 3:35-3:40 left.  Tom has 1 TO left and down 2 scores.  Have it Mr Brady.

First the Sea OC makes stupidest call in SB history 2 years ago.  Now Atl just pulls out the Choke job playbook and says here greatest QB of all time, we are going to help you out by being dumb idiots.

Man, I hate the Pats. Hate.

Trying to think through SB winners of last 20 years who drafted and developed QB's.  Obviously Pats, Manning-Giants, Manning-Colts, Steelers-Rothlisberger, Seahawks-Wilson, Ravens-Flacco, Dallas-Aikman, Packers-Rogers.

I don't know guys, that's kind of solid trendline for the value of draft and develop

No but it sure as crap helps. Romo never won anything of significance. Racked up wins in a sub par division then tanked in the Playoffs. It's the Hall of Fame not Hall of Good.

I understand that this is a board full of Chiefs fans, so it's not a surprise that few of you have an appreciation for what he accomplished since 2006. Although a few of you are clowning yourselves by mentioning guys like Green, Flacco, and Palmer.

Romo only played with the support of a top 10 scoring defense once (2009) and a top 10 rushing offense twice (2009 & 2014). It's no coincidence that those were also seasons the Cowboys went a combined 25-9 and won playoff games.

No other QB in the past 10 years did more with less than he did. The fact that he was able to go 78-49 as a starter despite the ineptitude of Jerry Jones as an owner/GM is damn near miraculous.

bro compare Palmer's and Romo's stats. They came in the league at the same time.

Romo has been a great QB, wish the Chiefs had him the past decade, but my point is he will be remembered as about the 8th, 9th, or 10th best QB of his era. I'm no NFL HOF expert but I don't think 1/3rd of QBs from an era should be in the HOF. JMHO Townie.


But the idea that Romo had extra pressure by playing for the Cowboys is really stupid. Its the NFL.

Do you think there is equal pressure on Royals and Yankees players?

Also your math is a little funny. For arguments sake let's say he is the 7th best QB of the past 10 years. That probably puts him in the top 3-5% of players at the most valuable position in the NFL. The Chiefs have started 11 QB since 2006.

Also, any given year there are an average of 45-50 HOF players on NFL rosters. How many times since 2006 has Romo been one of the 50 best players in the league? Probably at least 5 or 6.

If anyone is interested I started up a NFL Survivor group on Yahoo. If you don't know what that is you pick one team each week to win.  If that team wins you move on.  The key is you can only pick a specific team once during the whole season.  It's actually a lot of fun.

If you want to join just sign up here:

It really gets old watching the Pats win games like they did today. Teams just not making plays and finishing off the Pats.  Down 33-28, brady gets sacked, fumbles, NE OL recovers. Next play Brady goes deep. Hou DB jumped for ball. Bobbled it, brought it in, but couldn't hold on when he hit the ground. A turnover and it's ball game. So of course Brady completes for 26 on 3rd & 18. Next play 25 yd TD with under 30 seconds.

This is where I'm glad the NFL and Cowboys/Chiefs are way down the list for how much I invest as a fan. I wanted both to win yesterday, but I had fun with it while tweeting a ridiculous amount of gifs. I probably couldn't do that with Cat FB/BB. Maybe with the Royals a little bit because of the long season, but not in the playoffs. My investment in those 3 teams is simply much greater and today I really don't care that much that both lost.

Of course part of my disinterest in the NFL and those teams comes from the last 20 or so years. Neither has really competed for a Super Bowl. The Cowboys have won 3 wildcard games and the Chiefs one, neither has made an AFC/NFC title game. Each has had sporadic seasons of success, winning divisions and scraping into the playoffs as wildcards, but even in their best seasons (this year for both really), they aren't a threat and are gone after one game when earning a bye. I suppose if either really competed for a Super Bowl appearance my interest as a fan would increase, but they are both pretty futile as NFL franchises since the mid 90s.

The 3rd & 20 pass with :03 left is going to sting for a very long time. Who knows what would have happened in OT, but that was a top 5 KITN play for me as a sports fan. Off the top of my head only Sirr Parker and the Romo botched hold are worse.

Just an awful couple of weeks as a 'Cats/'Boys fan. The Walk Chalk, Tech ending, and 3rd & 20 combination has me considering dropping sports altogether and taking up woodworking or something.

Townie, I think we (Cowboys) might just be average this year. :(

It's annoying watching Detroit. First they drop a TD (settle for FG). Then on 2nd and Goal from half yard line, they run play action pass, run off tackle, and another pass on 4th down. No points. Then 3 plays later, Pitt gets 97 yd TD on 3rd and 9.

Now, they have 1st & Goal from 4.  Settle for FG

It may or may not matter for this coming Sunday vs KC, but it will definitely have an impact over the course of the entire 6 games. McFadden is made of glass and Morris isn't nearly the same kind of explosive runner.

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Josh McDaniels' assistants, including DC Matt Eberflus, signed contracts with the Colts and are expected to remain with Indianapolis.

Talk about awkward. So, basically what's happening here, is McDaniels recruited these coaches to Indianapolis to be apart of his Colts staff, and then McDaniels backed out of the job, leaving Eberflus and others in limbo. According to Garafolo, Eberflus and others have already been in the building in Indy, breaking down film and whatever else, while they waited for McDaniels to officially be introduced. Now, the new Colts coach will be stuck with assistants he didn't hire. This whole situation is a complete mess with no real end game in sight.

Mariota goes 22-23.  Titans Ave 4.6 per rush. They only score on just  3 of 11 drives (no FG misses either)

The ultimate back-door cover d/t a meaningless 2 pt. conversion, owing only to an injured kicker, which by the way also eclipsed the over. I'm pretty glad I'm not a gambler.

Not for the faint of heart, for sure.

When it's a tight spread under -3, I typically just pay a little extra and take ML to avoid the heartbreak of the back-door.

Fun NFL offseason already!

Sounds like Steelers/Bills had a deal in place to move Antonio Brown over, but Antonio pretty much said he wouldn't show up if traded to Bills.  Bills pulled out of the trade.  If Steelers can't offload Brown, he will most likely be sitting throughout the 2019 season.

Also - 610 would not shut up yesterday on how the Chiefs should bring over Le'Veon Bell.  I actually don't disagree with them either.

new england's strength of schedule has been rightfully acknowledged as terrible, but lately it has come back to the pack a bit as they've played baltimore / philadelphia / dallas / houston in the past 4 weeks.
buffalo's however has been unbelievably garbage.
this is a super rudimentary way of looking at strength of schedule, but this is a summary of each team's opponents' combined point differential (while extracting the point differential of the team itself):

1. cleveland +414 <--- this is crazy. they've only played 3 teams with a negative point differential (nyj, denver, miami)
2. cincinnati +250
3. seattle +240 <--- seattle has been super lucky. 10-2 record with only a +36 pt differential. 5 wins by a total of 11 points
4. houston +196
5. miami +181
6. baltimore +178  <---- they're a spaceship. 10-2 with a +187 point differential, against a combined opponent diff of +178
.
.
.
10. kansas city +132
.
.
.
21. new england -58
.
.

28. la chargers -167
29. detroit -168
30. indianapolis -209
31. ny jets -303
32. buffalo -495  :sdeek:

wouldn't be surprised if buffalo finishes 1-3 vs baltimore, @pittsburgh, @new england, vs nyj
