Fun, weird stat:

The Saints have failed to recover 3 of the 5 onside kicks opponents have attempted against them. (One in week 7 against the Bears, two last week.)

The rest of the league combined has only failed to recover 2 onside kicks all season.

Well the Vikings may have blown it last night but our odds of finishing in the 6 seed were about the same if we finished 4-1 or 1-4 so it's not the end of the world. If we take care of the Lions and Bears we won't have any problems staying ahead of the Rams (and if we lose those games we don't deserve the playoffs anyway). Also would be nice to take care of the Packers because I will be at that game.

Start Marvin Jones and Matt Stafford in all your fantasy leagues this week.

I sincerely doubt Stafford starts.

Oh ya, I forgot you are starting a quarterback I had never heard of until last week. Maybe don't start that guy.

Rams have a tough go of it but if they somehow caught the Vikings that would be crazy.

SF now in 2nd place in that division.

I can see the Bills surprising the Ravens this week and taking the lead in the AFC East while the Pats lose to the Chiefs.

Wtf happened to Rhodes? I feel like not too long ago y’all were calling him the best in the league. Or maybe that was a long time ago idk it’s all a blur.

Two seasons ago he was probably the best CB and I have no idea why he sucks now. Probably going to get cut this offseason.

He'll be 30 next june so he could be just washed up. I loved him going over to Harrison after he got burned on that long pass basically trying to cover his ass. He could clearly see Smith right in front of him attempting to rush the passer. Might want to play back a step or two knowing there was no safety help.

The Patriots are acting like underdogs again. They're 10-2. I guess whatever helps you self motivate?

Did Jerry just “you’ll make someone very happy some day” Jason Garrett?

The media this week has been lambasting Brady and the offense so I mean of course theyre going to turn it into the under dog narrative. I think ESPN this week has ryan saying this was the worst patriots team hes ever seen. You know Bill is going to be showing them that.

I mean, Brady is never the guy you want to count out, clearly, but he absolutely does look like dog shit out there. It could all be another ruse, but you gotta call a spade a spade.

I was talking to corey about this but I think the problem is all too easy being thrown at Brady. Outside of Edelman we have no one worth a damn at wr, especially with Sanu being hobbled since we traded for him. We had no contingency with TE after gronk and didnt try to address it either. Line finally looked solid but no one is getting open. Plus Brady at 42 obviously isnt elite anymore. I think its fair game to call out the offense and Brady's struggles, Bill is just going to use it to motivate everyone however because thats what he does.

AFC playoffs should be pretty interesting this year at least. Ravens, chiefs, texans, pats (and maybe the bills) could all make a serious run.

Agree with the playoffs being interesting in the AFC. I think it was assumed all along that the NFC was better but i donít see that being the case.

I was reading a stat where his last 5 games has been his worst 5 game stretch since....2017 when they went to the Superbowl.

The Patriots "downfall" happens every season and then suddenly they're in the Superbowl again.

13-3 Bills vs. 6-10 Cowboys in the Super Bowl. Deal with it.
