    Which ain't crazy. I'm just positing that it is more likely he outruns you if he catches one in space than winning a jump ball against three Defenders.

    On the plus side I went 2-2 this weekend. So I’m 7-3 picking these games in the playoffs. But oh how I wanted to be wrong today with both my picks! Utterly heartbreaking.
    I thought the Bills/Chiefs game was the real super bowl (2 best teams). I'm really hoping for KC vs LA, that looks like a great Super Bowl. KC has shown a lot the last few years. Solid franchise. And Stafford is so easy to root for after suffering in Detroit for so long.

    Although your statement is true, the rules of the NFL have changed and improved over the years to favor the offense. The overtime rule has not changed. Thus the problem.

    So, is there any doubt that this past weekend was the best NFL weekend in history? Can anyone even put forth a close second place?

    That was bananas.
    I can't remember a better weekend of NFL football. 4 great games and seeing Rodgers miss his shot and TB12 ousted. Just great stuff all around.

    Oh no, we really do hate prevent D. Don't get me wrong, execution is important but some of us understand the prevent D quite well but still hate it. Note these same people probably hate when Coach K plays stall ball (even though it's usually successful).

    best 2 minutes in football

    I grew up in Buffalo...this is painful.

    1) Should have probably squibb kicked to burn a few seconds and give KC only one play to get into field goal range.

    2) Probably would have ruined the spirit of a great game, but the bills could have just tackled every receiver at the line of scrimmage and taken the 10 yard holding penalty while burning 4-5 seconds. Not sure I would have applauded that play, but I would rather be playing next week.

    3) played better defense

It would seem that now more than ever, a coin toss in overtime signals is a lucky break.

    Cursory google research backs this up --- the team that wins the coin toss has a statistically significant advantage in winning OT games. I guess owners WANT that? As a fan, I definitely do not.
    The answers are always muddied, but imo it comes down to the fact the owners are just generally conservative. They see college OT as "not real football". They will make tweaks, such as the "need a TD on the first drive" rule, but I doubt we see anything more major than that. The anger over this will peter out in a few months just like it did in 2019, and they'll fall back on reasons like player health, which they don't really care about either, but it's a convenient excuse.

    I heard an interesting idea this morning... Just say who is going to get the ball first in OT (if it goes that far) at the initial pre-game coin flip. That probably wouldn't have changed last night's results too much, but if the Chiefs had an extra 20 seconds and they knew that Allen would get the ball first in OT, they aren't going for a tie there.

    Tony Romo made a similar point (just not all 11). You know Mahomes had to get the ball out quick, so the pass rush wasn't going to do anything anyway. Don't waste those spots. Even just rushing two guys to keep KC honest, the Bills could have triple-covered Hill AND Kelce and had guys leftover.

    I am Chiefs fan and my heart goes out to Buffalo. To quote Coach K "Both teams were worthy of winning the game". Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes are the future of the QB position in the NFL. I can't believe that in 2017 6 players went ahead of Allen (including two quarterbacks, Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold) and in 2018 9 players went ahead of Mahomes (including Mitch Trubisky at QB). I loved watching Allen dismantle the Patriots. I really hope Buffalo under McDermott and Allen win a Super Bowl some day. The AFC has another great young QB in Joe Burrow. Should be a fun matchup next weekend in KC.

    That was the most exciting weekend of football I have ever seen. Quite a contrast between how the Chiefs handled their last 13 seconds and the Cowboys theirs, although the Chiefs had all their timeouts. Also somewhere Andy Reid learned clock management.

    As for the Rams and the Bucs, that was a just outcome. Matthew Stafford completely outplayed Tom Brady. The only reason Tampa got back into it is because they got 2 short field touchdowns after Ram turnovers. Brady did have the one great long TD pass, but when the Rams weren't turning it over, Tampa couldn't move the ball. I actually really like and respect Tom Brady, but it was hilarious to see him get called for a 15 yard unsportsmanlike when he bragged earlier in the week about how he got away with chirping to the refs so much. The way Stafford and Kupf executed on that last drive was Brady and Gronk like. The big question for Brady is that Tampa is likely not be as talented next year as they were when they won the Super Bowl and they also had great injury luck in 2020.

    Aaron Rodgers is as gifted as QB as I have ever seen, but man have the Packers had some gacks in the playoffs.

    I agree that the NFL overtime rules should be changed, but they worked against the Chiefs in the 2019 AFC title game, so it's karma that it worked for them yesterday. Also they have been changed because it used to be any score ended the game and now you at least have to get a touchdown.

    You can't do this anymore. The NFL changed the rules after the Ravens exploited the loophole a few years back. Multiple holds on the same play to manipulate the clock is a 15 yard penalty and the clock resets.

    Now... you could drive a truck through the loopholes in that language too. If "multiple" is the standard, just have 4 dudes tackle Kelce and Kelce only. And there's a lot of subjectivity in proving that a team is trying to manipulate the clock. Kelce/Hill get held all of the time.

    Rams are the first team in NFL history to lose 4 fumbles and a 20 pt lead and still win the game.

    I'd tell ya, but then I'd have to kill ya
    If you don't like Aaron Rodgers, for whatever reason, you'll love this compilation:

    My personal favorite:

    Aaron Rodgers is learning what George McCaskey knows all to well.

    Owning the Bears doesn’t get you much in the playoffs
    (though I wish the tweeter could spell)
