Yeah, like not catching the Steeler face mask on Vander Esch.
I do too, plus I'm always disappointed when a team with Tom Brady wins.I was disappointed when Tampa Bay beat Carolina. I have a soft spot for Teddy Bridgewater.
Agreed. I did not expect the Bills to be a good team this year, but here we are. You can say they beat some mediocre teams, but they also beat Seattle, so there's that.I was celebrating an imminent Bills win with 11 seconds and 50 yards to go for Arizona... the Hail Mary was unbelievably lucky for Arizona (of course couldn’t happen without them being super talented, but still). Oh well, would have been better to hit the bye week with a win, but the Bills are a very good team this year, and I think they will do some damage in the playoffs this year.
The Bills had to go for a TD since overtime against Arizona would almost certainly come down to the coin toss. Both teams have good offenses, and defenses are too tired to stop them by overtime. The Hail Mary... the guy was triple covered, they got a pass rush on the QB... the pass was wobbly, but Arizona got their miracle. Hopefully the Bills are saving some miracles for the playoffs!I do too, plus I'm always disappointed when a team with Tom Brady wins.

Speaking of wild endings, the Browns-Texans game had one, too. With a little more than a minute left to play and Cleveland leading 10-7, RB Nick Chubb tore off a long run. He was all alone near the end zone and headed for a sure touchdown when he...purposely stepped out of bounds at the 1.
That had us scratching out heads here. I mean, why wouldn't Cleveland go for the TD so you could be up (with the extra point) 17-7?
And then the commentators explained, by stepping out of bounds, he stopped the clock with :50 left to play. Houston had no time outs, so all that was left was for Baker Mayfield to kneel on the ball twice and the game was over.
If Chubb had scored the touchdown, Houston would've had 50 seconds left to play with. While it's not likely, it's not out of the realm of possibility for Houston to score, recover an onside kick and score again. So Cleveland sacrificed the TD and the points for the sure win.
And while the commentators were congratulating Chubb on what they called a smart and selfless play, it turned out Baker Mayfield called that move in the huddle.
And now, the downside. In many places the line on the game was Cleveland by 4 points. So by avoiding the easy touchdown and leaving the final score 10-7, not only did Nick Chubb piss off anybody who had him in their fantasy league, but bettors who took the points lost money because Chubb stepped out at the 1.
I think it might be healthier if Nick Chubb stays out of Vegas for a few months.
You’d think by now that every team would have an indoor stadium.Watching Ravens-Patriots and in the final two minutes it started raining so hard it was hard to see anything. There was a constant muffled banging sound not unlike fireworks, but it was almost certainly raindrops battering the roof of the broadcast booth. Unreal.
