    I don't know how long it'll take for me to embrace this new format. 12 teams with 2 first round byes per conference seemed perfect. Maybe in a year or two, I'll like it.

    Oh boy do I feel bad for anyone that has to play the Ravens right now. That run game is an absolute buzzsaw right now, averaging 267 yards per game on the ground because of just dominant OL play.

    I also don't see the Chiefs as this unbeatable team that everyone (mass media and casual fans) think they are. Teams are figuring out Mahomes's nonsense where he drops back in the pocket 10-12 yards and are just rushing straight back at him, if teams actually sit in a cover 2 and don't let people behind them they're in for a rough time. I think Buffalo can and will beat KC.

    NFC wise I don't see anyone beating GB in Lambeau with the way Rodgers is playing.

    Where would a Rams win put the Jets 1st Round Pick from Seattle? Somewhere around #24 overall? Go Los Angeles!

    32 teams, 14 in playoffs and 6 teams will lose, so the pick will be between 19 and 24 based on record right?

    I think I'm giving the points on the nfc games and taking them on the afc games (pitt-clev is a tough one though)

    The Ravens haven't beaten anyone all year and Lamar has been horrid in the playoffs the last two seasons. Look at their schedule the last 5 weeks when they went on this big win streak. Cowboys, Browns, Jags, Gmen, Bengals. Give me the Titans everyday and twice on Sunday.

    But have you seen the Titans defense?

    Yes. Their pass defense is atrocious. It's bottom 5 in the league, but their run D is in the middle of the pack. Fortunately for the Titans, the Ravens have a worse passing game than the Jets

    I would have lost that bet, had to look it up. But yes, statistically, you are correct.

    They should bend the rules and make exceptions for coaches like Stefanski who test positive and let him coach from an isolated booth.

    Kinda crazy they're not letting him coach from his own press box or booth.

    Colts annual bed-shitting only a few hours away.

    I'm hoping Rams/Seahawks turns out to be a contest because the Saturday games all look like one-way traffic to me.

    I actually like the Colts today.
    They are my sleeper pick to go far.
