I do wonder if TB can do something, they've basically got a bye in the wildcard round*. Five thirty eight has Chiefs, Packers, Saints, Bills, Ravens, Buccs, Seahawks, Steelers, Titans, Colts as their top 10 (full predictions at https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com...l-predictions/)

They also have a preview of the wildcard round at https://fivethirtyeight.com/features...-card-weekend/

*Feel free to throw this back in my face if WFT win.

You wouldn’t back the Seahawks over the Saints, Bucs or Packers, but Wilson at his best can single handedly beat anyone.

Weak NFC though, compared to years gone by.

Except the Rams ;)

Surprised that Pete Carroll doesnt face more criticism to be honest by now. Play calling is awful given what a talent he has at QB.

Great set of games yesterday and was impressed with the Rams Defence, stand out set of players across all three games.

The Buccs defence would concern me, got sliced apart quite readily by a 4/5th choice QB.

As for todays games, part of me thinks the Titans will beat up again on the Ravens who lose in big spots, particularly in the cold recently, but then again, the Tennessee defence is whack.

Would expect the Steelers to win and I think they have been forgotten a little. They still have plenty of blue chippers on both sides of the ball.

Titans Ravens is a pretty good game so far, but think we're now into Derrick time

Definitely was not at his best!

Soul destroying game to watch, but you have to respect that Rams defence.

Spindle 11-01-2021 12:52 AM

Bears offence just getting flattened by the Saints.

They have certainly forgotten to turn up for the 1st Q :eek::eek:

Almost near perfect from the Browns. Love it.

People will poo poo the Saints performance but they are 1 inch Brees sneak and a wrongly overturned Defensive turnover touchdown from winning the game 35-9. Then it would be looked at a lot different.

Saints vs Buccs will be a cracker.

I am intrigued by the Rams vs the Packers however the most, purely as I enjoyed the defensive side of their game. Ramsey vs Davante Adams.

Bills vs Ravens will be a cracker hopefully, with the bills run defence, surely a concern.

Go Pack Go!

Woah Buffalo. Taron Johnson with the defensive play of the season.

CT_Palace 17-01-2021 04:28 AM

102 yds. Post season record.

hughff 17-01-2021 04:53 AM


Clearly only 101 Yards!

I was quoting the Spanish language comms who are very frequently incorrect. Although if you pause on his interception it does look more than 1yd into the end zone ... 101.5 yds? ;)

Browns ripped off on initiating contact helmet to helmet no call on Sorenson's
TD saving tackle.
Hugely unlucky that Higgins spill went out of the endzone - weird rule!
Had Cleveland at 22/1 to win the AFC.

This IS the Bills year.

CP-RJW 18-01-2021 09:22 AM

Rodgers vs Brady, Mahomes vs Allen. Delicious QB matchups, and fun team match ups in general. Can’t wait for the championships and the super bowl.

Diehard 18-01-2021 12:48 PM

They keep saying that takeways win Play Off games but if you make 4 then they certainly do.
Is that the end of Brees?

Hope not but he has high ambition and I don't think he would risk his health for another season unless he thought he could reach another SuperBowl

Vince Hilaire's Afro 18-01-2021 12:59 PM

Admire Drew Brees but I'm hoping there were thousands of arrogant Saints fans crying into their 'who dats'

BB Bob 18-01-2021 08:58 PM

Brees has got a fat TV contract waiting for him next season. Be interesting to see how he does as an analyst. I like Tony Romo as a commentator much more than i ever liked him as a QB - maybe thats a Dallas thing though.....
