The Raiders.... I didn't have any money on that game and I figured it was going to be another blowout so I didn't watch it

I didn't see the game last night, as it was on the NFL TV channel (which I don't get OTA), but found a video of that play. That was nutty. Like those when the guy drops the ball in celebration, just before crossing the goal line, for what would have been a TD.

It was worse than dropping the ball before the touchdown (which occurs with alarming frequency ). Those two guys were totally oblivious to the fact that the offense was getting ready to run another play and that they would have been offsides. One guy realized and was running back to the defensive side but two guys were totally into themselves celebrating. Knuckleheads.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and guess that they thought it was 4th down not 3rd down and thought the game was over...


or they were knuckleheads :P

I was surprised they moved the game from Buffalo. I have a friend who lives in Orchard Park and they got alot of snow but this is football after all and they have 3 days to clean up. Then I saw the video of the stadium and can see why they made the call. Ironically, it's supposed to be 50s on Sunday and 60 on Monday. And rain. Just what they need!

It will be interesting to see if they fill up Ford field in Detroit with spectators for the relocated Jets/Bills game on Monday night. Ticket prices are about as good as it can get "free".

NFL: 2014 Season

Boy, the ESPN app (on my iTouch) has become painfully slow. I use it to check out matchups and times.

Maybe I should switch to something else. Any recommendations?

Yes Ford Field should be a 'sell-out' for the free Bills-Jets game. A great pre-Thanksgiving treat for the people of Detroit.

Just watching the Pats help the Lions continue on their way to an 8-8 record and playoff miss and was impressed with the Pats as an organization. I pointed out to my 15-year-old son that Jonas Gray who tore up the Colts last week and made the cover of SI was benched today for sleeping in and being late for practice on Friday. Bill Belichick sent him home on Friday for being tardy. Thank you Coach Belichick for pointing out that it is important to set your alarm no matter how great you were last week.

The Broncos sure had their hands full with the Dolphins today. Lot's of points scored on both sides. I didn't think they were going to win until late in the 4th quarter.

+1

This has been Belichick mode of operations since he's been coaching the PATS. Earlier in the season Revis was sent home for being late for practice. In 2007 four players including Randy Moss and Adilus Thomas were sent home for being late for practice after a snowstorm. Thomas made a big stink about and he was cut the following season.

That's why he is the best coach in the NFL.

I thought that Gray would only be benched for the first half but he was benched for the whole game. It seemed a bit severe to me given the infraction.

That final drive for win by the Cowboys was impressive, capped off by some incredible pass blocking. The Giant's always play tough against the boys, but Philly even more so. Hope its a good Thanksgiving, but Sanchez is looking pretty dam good for the Eagles.

I think the game plan against the Lions did not need a strong running game since Detroit had the best run defense in the league and not so good secondary. That is why Brady threw the ball 53 times. It allowed Belichick to send a message to the rest of his locker room without affecting the outcome of the game.

Good road win, but Philly will likely be much tougher.

But what a catch by Beckham Jr.!

Yes it was. As a Tiger fan, I've been watching Odell for several years. He and Jarvis Landry were standouts for LSU. However, it's kind of bitter sweet to see him have a big game against the Cowboys.

Wait just a minute - the Bears have a 2 game winning streak. At 5-6, I need to check out their playoff possibilities, especially if they run the table.

It's a mathematical possibility, they would need
help from other teams. Last time they went 10-6, they stayed home and Lovie got fired.

True - but this year they could finish 6-10 and Trestman would keep his job

The defense has received all the bad press coverage, but in totality of the entire season, the offense has been the complete mystery. Disjointed and out of sync all year. The Lions have followed suit mysteriously the same way. Except their defense has been stronger and has hidden the problem better. Schedule doesn't set up well for Bears to get to 8-8.
