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.


Falcons offense doesn't function without Julio. He got injured early and the bits I saw it was Ryan holding on to the ball too long a lot. He didn't perform well when Julio was out earlier in the season.

Feel a bit for the O line there as they will be under scrutiny with those numbers but 100% correct that Ryan delayed a lot in the pocket.

Due to Covid, current Denver practice squad WR/forget college QB Wake Forest Kendall Hinton looks set to start against the Saints.

Ravens @ Steelers, originally scheduled for Thanksgiving was pushed back first of all to Sunday and now Tuesday. Lamar and the first choice RBs already ruled out.

Hinton went 1/9 for 13 yards and 2 INTs. Poor bastard. Kind you, Taysom Hill was hardly that much better for the Saints.

Yeah thankfully Taysom Hill can run the ball but he isn't the long term solution.

1 completion and 2 interceptions is a horrific stat.

Tyreek Hill had a monster first half for the chiefs.

I think he had over 200 yards in the first 10 minutes. TB secondarywas all over the shop in the 1st quarter but tightened up well. Brady is having to play a completely different game at the minute and he is quite erratic with a number of strange interceptions thrown over the last couple of weeks where he has looked to be forcing it. Albeit I dont think his receiving team are covering themselves in glory either

49ers have to play their next 2 home games at the Cardinals stadium due to new covid legislation in Santa Clara County. Ironically, where they are going to - there's more than double the cases/100K of the population.

The US is an absolute mess at the moment and showing no signs of reversing the trend.

The Seahawks were upset by the giants in Seattle. The Packers beat the Eagles after a mini scare late in the game.

The Rams beat the Cardinals in Arizona which allowed the vikings to move into the playoff positions. The Vikings had an up and down game against the Jags before coming out on top in overtime, the Vikings made it difficult for themselves.

Decent pressure put on Wilson and even when he did get time, the coverage down field seemed to do ok.

The Jets are playing like a playoff team at the end of the season. They beat the rams last week and are well ahead of the Browns this week.

The NFL's approach to Covid has been shambolic. How they can find a way to rearrange the Ravens game 3 times, but then force the Browns to play is farcical. You can see why there is rightly a bit of uproar amongst the Browns fans.

They made Denver play with no QBs a few weeks ago, they were always playing this one

Yeah but that just reiterates my point. Denver lost their QB trio, and the Browns their whole cohort of receivers pretty much. Why therefore did Baltimore get a game rearranged on numerous occasions to accommodate them?
