I don't know if I've ever seen a better all-around special teams game than the Pats last night.  You had a blocked punt and a recovered muff by the punt coverage team, I think all but one of the kick offs were returned and tackled inside the 25 (the other kick off I think was a touchback), and perfect PATs and field goals.  They only had one official punt, but the other time they punted they drew too many man on the field  for a first down.
The AFC is in terrible shape. They have an easy path to Minneapolis.

well, they did lose badly to KC at the start of the year, and we'll see about Pittsburgh.

That was a very different Patriots team.  They're easily the best in the AFC at this point.  The Steelers are way too inconsistent.  They have moments where they look like absolute trash.  Case in point, they were trailing almost the entire game yesterday against the lowly Colts.

The Pats still make bad offenses look good.  They made Brock Osweiler look good. 'Nuf ced.

titans I don't know enough about, but Marriota is the type of mobile QB with an arm that can give the Pats fits.

In Week 9, Blake Bortles threw for more yards (259) than Marcus Mariota, Andrew Luck, and Deshaun Watson combined (218).

Blake Bortles Facts
@BortlesFacts
After tearing apart the @Bengals for 259 yards in Week 9, Blake Bortles only needs 59,043 yards on Sunday against the @Chargers to break the @NFL's all-time record for passing yards in a career (set by Peyton Manning in 2015: 71,940).

This is why you should never pay attention to ESPN--or really any of the so called experts. They really have no clue.  And neither do the GMs apparently.

Entirely possible none of the top 5 will have jobs when the season is over and that number 6 will be making a playoff run

I looked it up because I remember how upset the Eagles fans were when they hired Pederson.  Just the opposite of when Chip Kelly the savior was hired.  I hadn't seen Eagles fans so upset over a coaching hire since Andy Reid; they hated that also.  I think we should also keep this in mind in discussing managerial hires.  We are wrong lots of the time.

I have oft wondered how much money the personalities on sports radio station in DC get paid because they all know as much about sports as any Joe you sit next to in a sports bar.



In some cases they know even less than that.



I wouldn't be surprised if Grant Paulsen and Kevin Sheehan apply for jobs in the next city Cousins plays for in order to be near him. Those two will still be talking about Cousins after he's gone. They naged so much about RG3 testicle ornaments and they have become the same thing for Cousins.

Serious sports radio is unbearable, I prefer the guys who at least try to be funny and admit they don't know anything

:lmao: at the DONKS who listen to knuckleheads on local sports radio.  Local sports has to be the dumbest form of media in this pathetic modern age of media.

I would trust Troll Twitter and PewDiePie Youtube before I'd trust local DONKS on sports radio.

I usually tune in the day after game days but can only stand it for a little while before I have to tune off.

Junks are entertaining in the morning, czabe while I’m cooking. They don’t pretend to be experts and they are almost funny.
