Not sure I agree with them not being a big game team, but I am a bit worried about tonight. Last time Ben was out with a concussion he threw 4 interceptions and was sacked 5 times against Oakland the following game. But a 8-8 team hosting the AFCCG just isn't right.

Would love to win so we can stuff the Ratbirds for the third time this season though, although I would have rather played the Titans

From purely Patriots favours:
I want:
Eagles @ Cardinals.
Ravens @ Chargers.

Ravens @ Cardinals.

We move up to 23 in the Draft Order as Cards move to 31/32.

We keep San Diego's 2nd rounder at 14. As they move to 31/32 otherwise.

To everyone who thinks the Titans were robbed last night, when were they going to score the winning points while racking up all those penalties and turnovers? They're part of the game and are the biggest reasons they didn't win. Crumpler and White's fumbles cost them six points, and thus the game. They have no-one to blame but themselves, the non-delay call could easily have been a non-factor had they just held the ball and kicked field goals.

They never repeated it, so haven't seen it since.

Watching it live I thought he was going to do what Orlovsky did in Minnesota. Can't believe CBS didn't run a replay of it, as it looked very close.

(Apologies to Orlovsky, but it wouldn't have been as funny. He nearly ran out of the stadium.)

No way all four road teams win this weekend. It has never happened since the play-offs went to this format.

And the last teams to play in a Super Bowl held in Tampa were...? (answer)

P.S. Sorry to all the Philly fans, but I really like the Giants to win tonight. No way the Eagles can play that well two weeks running.

It really was unreal they didn't show any replays, I've since seen it on the net, and it does look like he stays inbound, but I still think it would have been worth a challenge at the time. Could have made it 10-9 and given the Titans the ball (which they most likely would have cocked up again though).

Come on Eagles, all about what we can do on defence tonight, not going to have much joy on offence.

selhurstparkflyer 11-01-2009 08:55 PM

Go Giants!

Baltimore / New York! ;) Interesting!

Strathclyde Eagle 11-01-2009 09:40 PM

Not going to be NY/Baltimore this time by the looks of things. The Giants offence looks terrible.

pauldrulez 11-01-2009 09:41 PM

Surely as they say on NFL:Gameday, the chart says "GO FOR TWO". 8 points or 10 points. 10 leaves you ties with a FG. 8 and 9 you are in no mans land.

I smell an Asante TD anytime now.

ardeo 11-01-2009 09:46 PM

Come on the Eagles.

1 point was fair enough as Eagles will feel confident at holding Giants to one score, and didn't want the chance of them only needing an 8 point TD to tie it up. Were not done scoring yet anyway :D

Strathclyde Eagle 11-01-2009 09:46 PM

8 points - 1 possession game.
9 points - 2 possession game.

No doubt in my mind that Andy Reid did the right thing just kicking the XP there.

BTW Arizona are just 13 minutes away from hosting the NFC Championship Game. :eek:

ardeo 11-01-2009 09:48 PM

Big stop there, and Giants with just 1 timeout now

pauldrulez 11-01-2009 10:02 PM

What a catch.

If this is in, i'm on some big money on my acca.

Chargers (+9.5), Eagles (+3.5) and Chargers (+6.5).

Come on Philly and San Diego.

ardeo 11-01-2009 10:04 PM

Should be a good game later.

Just a FG but should be enough, fingers crossed.

Edenbridge Eagle In Exile 11-01-2009 10:09 PM

C'mon you Eagles!!!!

pauldrulez 11-01-2009 10:09 PM

I was wrong.

I called an Asante INT TD. Not far wrong though.

So, who would you rather have. Phillip Rivers or Eli Manning....

I swear I was the only one that said I would rather have Rivers.

pauldrulez 11-01-2009 10:16 PM



SAN DIEGO... SUPER CHARGERS

Edenbridge Eagle In Exile 11-01-2009 10:18 PM

Woooohooooo :lux: :lux:

ardeo 11-01-2009 10:19 PM

Rather have Donovan McNabb :lux: :lux: :lux:

Come on Eagles, Arizona up next weekend!
