Nathan Peterman throws five Ints in the first half, it would be comical if it wasnt a totally self-inflicted injury by a team owning a wild card spot entering the weekend.

Tyrod Taylor really needs to tell the Bills to fck off in the off-season.

Unreal. Why would you do that to a young lad? After the 2nd or 3rd he should have been out of there, notwithstanding the crazy decision to start him in the first place.

The Bills want to ditch Tyrod as they'll have to pay him to keep him after this season. They (rightly in my eyes) don't see him as a franchise QB and will draft a rookie from this promising class in 2018. That's no reason to do what they did - Taylor is a functional mid tier QB who tends not to turn the ball over. It was bonkers. In fantasy played the Chargers in any league I could get them in or didn't have Jacksonville. People who followed Peterman in college said he wasn't great even there!

He transferred from Tennessee to Pittsburgh, which is a bit of a red flag. But now I hope he makes it, because that was just too cruel.

PS re Taylor, he's above average in fairness but I don't think he's a top tier QB. That said, he's better than anything the Cardinals have now, so if they don't get anyone in the draft, I'd like to see them get him.

Yeah he is probably above average, he has no weapons, WR group is brutal, Benjamin may help but I think he got injured again yesterday. Think he is due $6m next year with Bills, which would be affordable for the Bills, when you look at what Glennon, for example, got with Chicago.

Yeah but I just think teams are seeing Dak Prescott, Carson Wentz, Jared Goff and what they're getting paid and saying - we can save money here. I quite like Tyrod Taylor. If everything else was right you could go far with him.

Pretty cool and inspiring story about Seahawks rookie CB Shaquill Griffin's brother, Shaquem. Hand his left hand amputated as a kid but was DPOY in the AAC last year and could well be in his way to the NFL

When you have the the Vikings -7.5 they're on the 13 with a chip shot to go 10 up. Flipping offside and they ice the game with the 1st down. ffs sickener, anyway happy thanksgiving lol

That was a really dramatic finish to the game even if you didn't have money on. What you forgot to mention was the lions blocked the field goal and returned the ball for a game tying touchdown before being called back for offside.

So the Vikings held on for a 30-23 win and a 3 game lead in the division.

Lions also seemed to forget that you can return blocked extra points as well. That could have brought them another 2 points.

Did you see the state of the LA Punter trying field goals on the side. He missed the net apparently.

Novak missed the first and got hurt.  The camera showed the punter as backup missing the practice net and then immediately cut to them going for it on 4th and 13 with the game still at 0-0.

Yeah I knew Novak got hurt, but I think most teams would hope their punter could at least hit a 25 yard field goal, instead of going for 4th and 13!

Mind you I think he kicked one later on?

I was in and out of the game but he missed two PATs later on. They actually brought Novak back out to kick their third FG attempt and he made it from short but he must have been sat after that.

It was a comedy. Romo ripped the piss out of him when they showed the footage of him missing the kicking net. He missed a couple of PAT's - typical Chargers. Should have been going for 2 points if the replacement kicker was so bad. Despite the Chargers showing their innate penchant for cutting their own throats it must be said they're looking good. For a team that started 0-4 to be in playoff contention is pretty impressive. Rivers at times last night and in recent weeks has looked really good. Some boyo.
