Philly has -1 yard of offense, and Detroit has fumbled 6 times (losing two).

Twitter makes everyone think they are really clever.

I've so far seen no shortage of jokes comparing the DET/PHI game to Hoth (complete with AT/AT pictures) and references to Riley Cooper thriving in an "all-white" environment.

I assume there are no more doubts regarding the Patriots and their deal with Satan...

Can someone put the Redskins out of their misery?

At least the Broncos won.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Ugh, gonna cost them Gronk for the rest of the year, though. That's the result of the NFL making it illegal for a defensive back to hit a player anywhere BUT the knees, basically. Not taking Gronk down with a chest shot...

Gronk died for Billy Five-Aces' sins.

ACL and MCL tear, Gronk's done for a bit....

On the plus side, Billy Cundiff came through for the Patriots again

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

After another 400 yd 4 TD performance from Peyton Manning (this time in the cold), it's starting to look like the reason Peyton loses games isn't because A) they're a playoff game, B) they're a cold weather game, or C) they're against the Patriots. It's starting to look more like Peyton loses games when the defense and special teams fail to execute, requiring perfect play from the QB position, especially after a week of the media taking him out of the game. That's still a huge concern and something that he should try and rectify, but yesterday proves he's more than capable of winning a game in a cold weather environment (which he's done before), and he's won the Super Bowl before, and he's beaten the Patriots before.

Think about his two losses this season: a loss to the Colts after an intense week of interviews and media focus on Peyton's return to Indianapolis, up to and including a pre-game ceremony welcoming Peyton back to Indy for the farewell he never got. Peyton had to give numerous interviews before the game, not to mention the whole Jim Irsay controversy. Even still, they had a shot to win.

Then the loss to the Patriots, when the media was all about Manning/Brady XIV (seriously? Worst name for a "bowl" ever) and again with the pre-game hype about Manning being unable to win in the cold and against Brady. Then the Broncos go up 24-0, and immediately go into "protect the lead, run the ball" mode. When Peyton had to make throws, he did. Again, they had a shot to win, led by a game tying 4th quarter Manning passing drive, but defense and special teams made huge errors. Broncos probably win the rematch.

So if the Broncos are going to miss the Super Bowl this year, it won't be because Peyton can't play in the cold or win a playoff game or beat Brady, it will be because the defense and special teams failed to do their job. Should be an interesting stretch the rest of the way to see how that team handles the pressure.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Some crazy games this week: The conditions in Philly, the comeback by New England and the bizarre finish to the Vikes/Raven game all made for some entertaining football.

The Vikings game was kind of dull until those last two minutes (and 5 seconds), then the teams combined for 36 points. We had a 10 number board going at the bar and the winning number kept changing. Can't remember when (if ever) I've seen 5 touchdowns scored that quickly.

Tough day for the Vikes. They lost a screwy game, they're eliminated from the playoffs and Adrian Peterson was injured.

The Packers finally won without Aaron Rogers. Granted, they just squeaked past Atlanta, but their playoff hopes are alive. I figured if they lost Rogers would be shut down for the season. Now there's still a sliver of a chance. Go Pack!!

The five lead-changing touchdowns in 2:30 is an NFL record, I believe.
