Naming Tua as the starter seems like a bit of a raw deal for Fitzpatrick. Not unexpected in the long run but still. Ripping the plaster off quickly

Fitzpatrick knows the deal. He'll be grand.

To me it makes sense. Gives Tua more meaningful reps with zero expectation winning.

Would Fins expectations not have now risen slightly with the good run? Tua will have Aaron Donald and the Rams next

Two of their three wins have been against the Jets and Jags!

Further progress under Flores is what they're looking for. Nobody thinks or expects them to win the division or make the playoffs. They're going good though. Tua could be really special.

Ronnie Stanley broke his ankle today and is out for the year about 48 hours after signing a $99m extension with about $70m guaranteed.

The Vikings upset the Packers 28-22 in lambeau while the Bengals upset the Titans 31-20 in Cincinnati. The latter result got me kicked out of survival football, I didn't see either of  those results coming.

An unbelievable performance from Cook.

Will that Saints win slightly dampen the Tampa love in that seems to have swept the media?

Slightly?! They'll be asking existential questions about the team!

A total annihilation on both sides of the ball the entire game. Saints needed that as they hadn't looked great recently. Now with Thomas back they're a real force

Taysom Hill named as starting QB ahead of Jameis while Brees is hurt. Gonna be a wild ride.

Shocked at that. Jameis is the interception king but still thought he would have gotten the nod. He surely has a better arm than Hill. Taysom good at the run of course.

Was shocked at the decision and even more shocked how well Hill did as a passer.

Yeah he did well didn't he!? Surprising. Matt Ryan on the other hand was rarely off his ass. 8 sacks on him I think.
