Great movie alright ! The playing surface in NY is under severe pressure this week, Niners lost Bosa and Solomon Thomas for the year , and have to play on the same field again this weeks v the Giants. Players and coaches complaining about the surface before last sundays game.
A few coaches will already be under pressure for their jobs. Gase looks like a dead man walking in NY, Dan Quinn could be in diff's as well, as could Bill O'Brien. Patriots could have won that game sunday night against the Seahawks, terrible call on that last play .. Russell Wilson is a fantastic player.....

Don't think it was a terrible call at all. Seattle hadn't been able to stop then all night and Cam is one of the greatest goal line threats in NFL history. Was just a good stop is all.

some good games today. Russell Wilson is playing at a different level right now! The Pats are legit , they play KC on the road next week, should be a cracker. Dan Quinn and Adam Gase wont sleep well tonight. That could be trubiskey finished in Chicago.

The Vikings lost out narrowly to the Titans at the weekend but the real bad news is the Titans were infected with the plague throwing the Vikings and Titans next games into doubt. 3 Titans players and 5 officials have tested positive for covid 19.

The good news for the Vikings at the weekend was the breakout  performance of wide receiver Justin Jefferson. He had 175 yards receivng and a touchdown. He looks like the real deal. I am picking him up in fantasy football where I can.

Hmmmm. One of the best backup QB's in the league?  ;D

When was the last time a team started 3-0 and the QB got benched?

Joking aside what he has produced hasn't been good enough. First game of the season I thought he looked a bit better but overall he just seems to play with the handbrake on. When Foles came in it was obvious he was playing with more freedom. I'm not convinced Foles is more talented but he's more decisive and confident. Bears aren't a great team by any means but will stay in a lot games due to good defense.

Cam and the Chiefs' practice squad QB test positive. Pats @ Chiefs provisionally rescheduled for Monday or Tuesday but big question mark over that I guess with what happened the titans and Steelers.

Season could be down the shitter at this rate, doubt the season finishes on time if it does conclude

Apparently the league and the NFLPA agreed to about six weeks of slack to account for any COVID related postponements.

MLB was in a much worse state when it had its outbreak and look to be managing to get the season finished one way or the other. Would be confident the NFL will do the same, regardless of what that means for the overall schedule.

Pats-Chiefs fixed for Monday night, pending further testing tinnitus. All other Pats tested negative.

Plan is apparently that the Pats will fly tomorrow afternoon and play that night. Gotta think that'll be a bit of a hiding.

The Texans have sacked head coach Bill O'Brien. After a tough start to the season losing to the Chiefs, Steelers and Ravens. The defeat to the Vikings proved too much for the owner to take. O'Brien was also the GM.

Is there really anyone who will  be able to stand up to the Chiefs?

Maybe Seattle, maybe Green Bay

New England with Cam, maybe Ravens if everythign goes right?

Not many genuine contenders though
