Early Games Open Thread

Its football, Just without the Chiefs.

Its a long wait to see our beloved Chiefs take on the Chargers tomorrow for Lunes Noche Fútbol Americano – or Monday Night Football as they call it in Mexico City. Either way, the team should be travelling today so we’ll have to settle for watching other teams. Here’s your available early games:

  • FALCONS AT PANTHERS 
  • COWBOYS AT LIONS 
  • JAGUARS AT COLTS 
  • BILLS AT DOLPHINS 
  • TEXANS AT RAVENS 
  • BRONCOS AT VIKINGS 
  • JETS AT REDSKINS 
  • SAINTS AT BUCCANEERS

Not sure who to root for? Tony has got you covered:

LET’S GO EAGLES
BEAT PATS

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Broncos pulled defeat from the jaws of victory.

First time I’ve seen a back-shoulder throw like that.

Good job Vikes.

that should have been DPI, the donks should get an untimed down, but i wanna see sad horse face

OPI first…pushed off, then the DPI grab took place. Probably should have been flag both ways and replay the down, I guess.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

Afternoon thread isn’t showing unless you go to the open threads. Looks like it got published as archived.

surely that can be fixed

Yup, done deal.

Why dont coaches ask for measurements anymore? if its less than a yard you can ask for a measurement and the refs have to grant it

legal_kush
legal_kush

Laser technology and they still have a chain gang.

WaywerdSon
WaywerdSon

i agree with that too, but the measurement gets you a free timeout. they have to grant it if its close

Touchdown Vikings.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaand game.

BleedingRedAndGold

Not sure why the Ravens are considered “unstoppable”. Steelers, Bengalsx2 plus a suspect Pats team leaving only the Seahawks as a win over a team known to be good. That’s their last 5 games. Call it 1.7 actual wins across that stretch, in terms of difficulty. Sure, they hung some gaudy numbers on some bad teams. So?

Are they a good team? Sure, but their recent record leading up to today’s game wasn’t exactly filled up with tough matchups. As well say the Patriots are the best in the AFC because of their record.

We’ll soon find out
Next 3 games
Rams
49ers
Bills

Do you see a loss there?
Not sure I do.

49ers might be good? Their front 7 sure is.

Ravens win all those games by a lot.

I like their team composition and coaching. Defensive holes and passing limitations will probably be their undoing.

legal_kush

Fantastic front office.
I remember some “bold prediction” that theRavens would suck and Harbaugh would lose his job.
Hawt Taek.

chief_curmudgeon

They are a well-run organization. I didn’t like Jackson in the draft, but I think his chances of NFL success increased about 60% just from going to a good organization.

Jdklks
Jdklks

not sure what they can do but completely dismantle the teams on their schedule.

BleedingRedAndGold

I did say they were good. Probably playoff-caliber, too. “Unstoppable” and a lock to beat us if we were playing them next? Not buying it. If they’d beaten 5 good teams running, teams that can stop other teams, then there’d be a case for calling them unstoppable – but the Patriots have beaten up on bad teams, too. Are they unstoppable? What about the Niners?

legal_kush
legal_kush

Fair enough.
Best team by a bit in the AFC will have to do.
Except in power rankings and QB ability, of course.

BleedingRedAndGold

Don’t think I can agree with that ranking, but won’t outright disagree, either. I think we have a better team, once we get healthier, but I’m not going to assert that and argue for it until the O shows they’ve returned to form and the D can return to the level prior to the TEN game.

legal_kush
legal_kush

When the “better” teams start dominating other division leaders, let me know.
The Colts are whipping up on a divsion foe, are they better than the Texans?

Lamar Jackson and co. just destroyed Brady and Watson. Who have the Chiefs beaten badly? At some point, they will get credit.

HawaiiFiveOh
HawaiiFiveOh

I don’t agree. The Seahawks, Pats, and Texans are all playoff teams (at this point). A 5 game win streak is nothing to sniff at

BleedingRedAndGold

I’m not sniffing at their win streak, I’m specifically disagreeing with classifying them as best in the AFC because of it. Strength of schedule means something when you’re discussing that, IMO. If record is what matters and not strength of schedule, the Patriots are better than the Ravens.

Please note that I was consistent with strength of schedule, too, since I discounted the Pats’ record due to their weak schedule. More than I did the Ravens, in fact, and I’ve been saying that about NE all season.

chief_curmudgeon

Dang, just got switched to the donkey’s game. At least watching them lose will be sweet. Houston was getting handled anyway…

Texans back in it lol
Just scored a TOUCHDOWN with 7 min left in game. Lol

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

So… You’re saying they have a chance?

Deshaun Watson never loses by double digits… all the way back to high school… or some stat like that

He’s gonna today.
Four more passing TD’s by Jackson, who can only do that against shite teams.

Broncos D
Still in locker room after halftime

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

Sometimes a team figures your defense out and makes the adjustments at half, then the defense gets gassed and they are done. The problem is the offense has completely collapsed.

Afc playoff teams in no order
Ravens
Pats
Bills
Colts
Chiefs

Raiders or Texans

legal_kush

They should seriously consider giving the AFC #6 seed to an NFC team that misses the cut.

Vikings attempting a come back. 13 – 23

legal_kush

Got ’em +12 1/2 at the half. Bunch o’ Vikes fans here. Hell, there’s a Viking Longboat in the Vesterheim about three blocks down.

Only thing worse than a TE screen on 3rd and 2… a slow TE end around on 3rd and 1…

I got the Donks +10 1/2 this morning. Them losing now would be perfection.

Nah, that was lack of execution, not Peters on that 4th down.

These young QBs are pretty good. The future of the NFL should be fun.

Jdklks

Shhhh…don’t tell the Watson/Jackson haters. Only Mahomes can be a good QB.

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

NFL is better off with good young passers. I still have some doubts, but I hope most of them are for real.
Mahomes is on a completely different level though, so I don’t need to tear them down to build him up. Homers and shock-jocks like Skip can kick rocks.

Jdklks
Jdklks

Rational take. Cheers!

BleedingRedAndGold

Watson and likely Dak would do better with better coaching, IMO. Jackson’s coming along, and if he progresses as much next year as he did this year over last, he’s gonna be pretty good. There’s some young talent out there and possibly more sticking their toes in the water this season. Kid with the Bills, and maybe Darnold (I know he’s been underwhelming people, but consider his coach and situation).

chief_curmudgeon
chief_curmudgeon

Baker might be ruined if coaching does not improve, same with Darnold.
Allen has improved a ton, but I’m not sold on his ceiling as a pure passer is much higher than average.
Watson, Dak, Jackson, and Wentz are almost there.
Minshew and Murray are showing promise.
Not sure about Goff, but Trubisky is toast.

How did we lose to this Houston turd?

Injuries.
