Well the Texans certainly earned/deserved their first season loss today. However, I think Fitzpatrick may have been confused which team he was playing for. He threw 3 interceptions.

Thank you, Cowboys, for defeating (barely) our division rivals Rams.
I'm kinda gagging wishing our other rival SF beats division leader ARI this afternoon. If it's an ugly win, by a slim margin, that may make it palatable.

Denver really got hosed on that offsides flag that was picked up.

What a game. Now that would have made an exciting super bowl.

But I want to know, who in their right mind calls tails on the OT coin flip . I'd call heads all the way.

I heard that too. Guess size really doesn't matter.

Absolutely, and as it turns out it could have changed the outcome of the game. Maybe not, but who knows now.

To be honest, I had given up any hope for Denver by the end of the 3rd quarter. What a come back in the 4th to force it into OT only to end up with a loss. However the Seahawks played a great game against another great team.

Can the Bears stop the run?

Can the Jets stop the pass?

Ratliff out will hurt but am hopeful on the rookies.

The key will be to keep Jay clean as Ryan wants to blitz and cover one-on-one. Need to keep tight end in and back field blocking and then I am good taking chances on single coverage.

Then, of course, there is stopping their run. We will see.

Hopefully both...I have a lead in FF but my opponent has Culter and CJ...a 0 0 tie would be ideal

Nope, I'm 48 points back and have Cutler, Brandon Marshall, and Martellus Bennett. I need a high scoring game. One of us is in trouble.

I think we'll see a good offensive game with more than 60 total points.

Bears have 5 starters not playing due to injuries, but I expect them to win.

Probably me...I had a couple of guys fall flat on their face this week...Eddie Lacy and Shawn Graham to be specific...Graham had 0 points thanks to a missed PAT and no FG and Lacy just hasn't been good. That's what you get with an autodraft
