Was at the Raiders-Bears game yesterday. Enjoyable experience for my first NFL game, even if American sports fandom is so fake and forced. Hammered Americans who can only shout "wooooo" or "yeahhhh!" when reacting to the game become quite tiresome after a while.

It was definitely made more enjoyable by the fact I had Josh Jacobs in my fantasy team and the guy I was playing was seated beside me.

Spurs' new stadium is absolutely incredible. It's like a way cooler version of the Aviva.

Cleveland Browns back to being themselves again with a 31-3 loss to the 49ers.

The Niners are legitimate contenders this year (if they can stay healthy).

Was there myself. Great weekend. Brother in Law caught a ball lobbed into the seats by Harry Kane. Unreal stadium in fairness.

Yeah, its weird to think of a fullback being so important to offense in this day and age but he does a lot for them in the run game and they are a very heavy run offense. He's also a very good receiver.

Defences are getting smaller and quicker so full backs are having a bit of a renaissance at the minute to counteract that in the run game.

Same here. Very enjoyable though the result and performance of my team was extremely disappointing. I guess it's that flying east for a game thing but the Bears were incredibly sluggish versus how they've looked up to now this season, defense in particular. A costly loss for da Bears I feel.

Stadium is fantastic. It looked like an NFL stadium to be honest. So easy to get in and out. Our seats were fantastic and I'd say there weren't any bad seasts. Terrible queues at the bars/stalls though which was a pain as well as the idiotic mechanism they have for filling beers.

"What the hell could that be?" I thought.

So looked it up:

Mad! Does look as fast, if not faster, than a regular pump? Maybe more can go wrong. Certainly wouldnt want my Guinness poured that way (although I'd avoid Guinness in a stadium anyway!)

Spurs ones were raving about this before the stadium even opened!

The facilities and staff operating them were an absolute shambles. One of every three pumps working (they're not idiotic at all actually, they're highly logical, provided they work of course) and constantly running out of both food and beer.

Haven't decided if the video of Sam Quek heading off to get the coin for the toss minted or "Ilora" winning Raiderette of the Game (not quite sure of the rules for voting/eligibility) were my favourite worst moments of the game. One of the lads wanted to do to a designated Bears pub. We took one look at the state of the lads in it and ruled it out in about five seconds

The Cowboys lost to the winless jets by 2 points. Inexcusable even with Amari Cooper going off injured.

The Vikings beat the Eagles 38-20 for a convincing win.

Chargers' season has fallen apart pretty quickly.
