The Giants should have beaten the Buccs IMO if you had marginally better QB play though their receiving core is better than the Saints about now, just surprised its so high. The big pointer for me was that Wayne Gallman ran the ball easily on the Buccs so would expect Kamara to and even Mattinson to have good production. The saints have been under par but must know that this game is the final hurdle to the play offs.

After Sunday they face banged up 49ers, Falcons, Broncos, Falcons, Eagles before Cheifs Vikings and Panthers to see out the season. Could easily see them go 7-1 6-2 across those games. They would have a game lead plus 2 tiebeakers vs the Buccs.

Im all in for the saints win.

Easy as you like :lux: Saints being slept on but have put 35 points up every week, regardless of who they have on the field. Was only a matter of time before their Defence which was Top 10 last year came to the party. I had the Saints as my Superbowl winners before the season started and still would fancy their chances.

As for my team the Cardinals, too many blown tackles and Kingsbury keeps making dumb calls. Probably at about a fair standing in terms of division now, but was real chance to close the gap. Dolphins will be a serious team next year if they use the Houston picks and free agency well.

Very impressive shut down of the Brady machine, forcing him into interceptions and even intentional grounding. Kamara again showing what a tricky whippet he is, Saints did it all, short and long passing and rushing, made it look easy.

Cowboys should've won but they botched it. Lovely :D

Bit harsh! Really dropped off the past two years, but absolutely elite for a decade before that. Will be a well deserved hall of famer.

I wasn't aware the hall of fame was for the mediocre.

Rivers also has 0 weapons around him and the O-Line has dropped in comparison to last year. Stick him in the Buccs team and you would see similar performance to Brady, though not as a good.

Mediocre is Derek Carr or Fitzmagic.

As of 2019, Rivers was the eighth-highest-rated passer in NFL history. Only five quarterbacks in league history have thrown more touchdown passes, only six post-merger quarterbacks have averaged more yards per pass attempt, only seven have more passing yards, and only eight have higher career completion percentages. 8 pro bowls. Sure I could go on.

I have just watched highlights of the Dolphins @ Cardinals which was a brilliant game. I reckon Kyler might be my favourite QB in the league, he can do so much.

Carr? Don't agree and nor do stats/ratings of all types where he sits in the top 25% of qbs. What am I missing? Should the Raiders be doing better if not for him?

It was harsh of me to lump Carr in with Fitzmagic, and he’s having a good season, but it’s just that, a good half season. I’d still take about half the leagues starting QBs over him. To me, that’s an average/mediocre quarterback.

Career win/loss of .547
Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, Teddy Bridgewater and Deshaun Watson higher.
That's a more appropriate grouping for him rather than Hall Of Fame.

Anybody finding the Bills game difficult to watch without the first down line graphics?

Hail Marys never seem to work.... but....

I need Funk again.
What’s the success percentage for Hail Marys?

Hedgehog 16-11-2020 02:49 AM

Typical, I lose interest in the Raiders and they start doing good.

Maybe I should give up on Palace for you guys...

aj4england 16-11-2020 09:40 AM

Cardinalssssss

Now fire that bum Kingsbury and keep this march going. Kyler for MVP

I believe Denver's yards gained in the 3rd quarter was a whole 1.
Or was that -1?

CP-RJW 17-11-2020 12:13 PM

Damn you Vikings, giving me false playoff hope. Gotta be pretty much perfect and hope the Rams drop off.

Should win the next 3 - Cowboys, Panthers Jags.

Buccs Bears Saints Lions - maybe split these 2-2?

Leaves you 9-7

Going to need one of the NFC West teams to sink (or maybe the Saints now Brees is out?)

Its about a 25% chance currently I believe, partly as the 6-3 Cardinals, Hawks and Rams have 4 interdivison games. Would need the cards to sweep the Rams and then hope the hawks beat them too, as seahawks have the softest schedule with eagles giants jets and washington, and likey winning 3 off them would knock you out.

No way we’re dropping off. The Defence has really clicked, just need Goff to show he’s worth that contract and we’re headed for the post season!
