    NFL refs hate the Browns. Now that was an ugly win, but a W nonetheless. Hard to overcome fighting a shitty team that has the refs on their side. So many garbage calls I don't even know where to begin. Disappointed, as most of the year the reffing has been decent, but that was atrocious.

    That was a pretty Teddy pass....
    He's got a bright future although I still think Carolina takes a QB in the draft.

    Honestly the end score didn't reflect how Sunday went for KC. Seems like the Chiefs never gave up control of the game and they were up 20-7 at the half. Tampa can still grab that last playoff spot though.

    I think the Ravens should have been forced to forefit.

    The Cardinals are frauds. I give props to the Pats for stealing that game. Jags and Jets are eliminated, no surprises there.

    The Bears could have had Watson at least. Packers beat the breaks off of them.

    I think the Seahawks are back in the driver's seat to take the NFC. The Saints look imposing but they choke every year in the playoffs.

    Yeah thanks to really bad moves on Jags part. Its a wild year. I'll take every single W no matter how we get it.

    Like I said, I'm reminded of when the Chiefs had their first winning season under Andy Reid. They mostly beat bad teams, sure, yet it provided the organization with confidence that they were heading in the right direction.

    That and the Browns are the only team in the AFC North I can stand. I used to be ok with the Ravens but them building a Ray Lewis statue in front of the stadium is too much. I still like Lamar Jackson though.

    I was happy last night that Marcedes Lewis caught a TD pass and how I'm glad the Packers got him after he escaped from Jacksonville. Makes me think of a list of non Chiefs or Packers players who I like in the NFL:

    Jarvis Landry
    Larry Fitzgerald
    Lamar Jackson
    Deshaun Watson
    Darren Waller

    I'll have to think about the defensive players later.

    I just hope the Steelers just downright blow out the Ravens this Wednesday after all the bullshit they're pulling out. And that the Ravens get a heavy fine and lose a draft pick or two for this.

    I understand that the NFL wants to ensure that the Ravens are putting out a safe team for the Steelers, but yeesh... They should just make the Ravens forfeit, pay the Steelers players for the missed game, and make that the example.

    Phillip how did you feel about this last Steelers win? (I didn't see anything but highlights, seems like a weird game, I was hoping for a tie lol)

    They played mediocre to bad. On offense they struggled to move on the ground (they really missed Maurkice Pouncey and James Conner) while on the air they dropped a lot of balls, particularly Diontae Johnson who had like 3-4 drops and a fumble that went out of bounds. Defensively they missed Stephon Tuitt a lot when stopping the run, luckily RG3 and the other guy were pretty harmless in the air (Watt and co dominated the Ravens line there and Haden got a pick 6), sans the second TD in which Edmunds (who had been really good in the year) took an awful angle and completely missed on Hollywood Brown for a long TD and Minkah also dropped an easy interception. And on special teams, they missed an Extra point and McCloud whiffed a punt that gave the Ravens a very ahort field which ended with their 1st TD.

    Overall, if they hadn't been so sloppy, they would've won comfortably. They also lost Bud Dupree to a torn ACL which blows because he was having a Pro Bowl-calliber season. The only silver lining is the rookie Highsmith has been playing really well when called upon and theoretically should be at least adequate in relief.

    As a Browns fan, this year I feel the Steelers have just been playing their schedule. I dont know if they're awesome or not. I cant help that they played shitty teams. I'm also not holding it against them. Everyone plays their schedule.

    I've watched the Steelers put up incredibly mediocre performances against the depleted Ravens and a Gilbert-Cowboys team. They'll obviously have a bye, if not full home-field advantage, but outside of maybe one win, don't think they would have a chance against the Chiefs.

    I think they lose their first game of the year to the Bills.

    It depends. As bad as the Steelers have played lately, they do tend to play down to it's competition. They're as likely to lay an ugly win against Dallas or a bad Baltimore as they are to go in a flurry and blow up a Cleveland or put 24 in a half against a good team like the Titans. If there's anything we can gather from the Steelers, besides how inconsistent they are, is they are very resourceful, they adjust well and can win in different ways. I wouldn't count them out as many have, specially when everyone else in the Conference has it's flaws (Titans have a bad defense, Bills do as well, plus Josh Allen tends to appear and disappear, Rivers throws bad picks at the worst times and the Chiefs almost always have to play shoot-em' ups because they can't stop anyone).

    Steelers vs Rams is a very likely Super Bowl match-up. Both have the QBs and the defenses to make it. Goff getting a chance at redemption and Big Ben (who's blocked me on Twitter heh) going for a 3rd ring would be interesting storylines.

    The Bills game would be their third in 11 days. If the Steelers lose one game, it's that one.

    I don't trust him but far worse QBs have taken their teams to the Super Bowl (and so has he, for that matter). I imagine the Steelers would win 20-7 or 19-10. Some ugly score like that.

    Vikings down by three at half to... Jacksonville.
