No wonder Mularkey was in danger of being fired. Pathetic play-calling. Mariota's legs kept him in a job this year and nothing else.

Harsh.....tbf what was expected of them. Made the playoffs and got a playoff win on the road. One thing I never really got, play calling, how much is the head coach, always hear bout bellichick but how many plays does he actually call or how much is purely down to patricia and mcdaniels

You can assume whatever the play-calling hierarchy the HC has a veto when it comes to a critical 4th down play like that one.

And ESPN were falling over themselves to claim this was the beginning of the end from Brady after a few down weeks. The Titans are a total embarrassment at this stage.

That's the afc though, it's no way near as strong as the nfc but still the best in afc is every bit as good asbest in nfc. Pats are like the dubs which is depressing to say

Jags are 14-0 up on the Steelers. Upset on the cards?

Jags D looks tough, Fournette running well. If Bortles can avoid turnovers, then they're in great shape.

It's not over. Steelers score a 4th down TD with 25 secs left in 1st half.  Fournette has been out of the game with an injury.

If the Steelers are beaten by the Jags at home and and the NFC ends up Foles-Keenum they may as well give the terrible twins in New England the Super Bowl and save all the hassle. They won't have faced as soft a run in in any of their previous winning seasons.

Iíve been a jinx, although I still think Iím right about the jags, but I have a feeling the Vikings may win it.
