I agree. I like Kirk and the Vikings. I do have them making the playoffs. As long as Philly or SF gets knocked off, it will be all good. The Lions have something waiting for Philly Jim Carrey Reaction GIF

I would love a Bengals/Bills vs. Vikings/Lions Super Bowl. That way one fan base finally witnesses a champion. 
 

I’m already sick of Philly and Nick.

I picked the Bills last year but they folded, having said that, I would be ok with any of the 4 teams winning it all you listed. Can Burrow stay healthy? He just got the huge contract. 

 

On my pick thread I had Lions vs Ravens in the SB. Repeating is tough, so I didn't pick the Chiefs and usually the SB loser (Philly) takes a step back.

@LJpalmbeacher2 OT prediction might come true..

 

Run LJ RUN... For the LOTTO... 

 

I may have had the wrong team winning BUT I got the 1 point margin right. :funny:

......I almost picked the Lions by 1  also, for me the game was a toss up. Kelce  being out was a red flag for picking KC as far as putting money on them. I think Payton is a real threat in that division even if they have to use smoke and mirrors. Lol 

 

I've hit a few PICK 6's on Greyhounds & Horses but never had any luck playing lottery.... but I don't hardly try betting ping pong balls. Ping Pong balls don't have a Beyer Figure. haha

I will have to listen to the Vikes on NFL+. I can watch Red Zone too.

 

Enjoy the games!

I would l love to see the Fins play the Chargers. That game will be a real shootout.

The Steelers and 49ers could be a good one as well.

 

The Steelers and 49ers game is showing by me. I don't want to jinx them but I like the Steelers in that game. That should be a fun game.

 

Hopefully the Vikes beat the Bucs at home. The Bucs have a better defense than the Vikes have, but the Vikes offense should be potent this year, even without Dalvin Cook. 

 

Enjoy the games.

I have Jags at Colts, Then Packers at Bears on Fox.

Homer thinks Xfinity rules whos your daddy dancing GIF- Uverse and DirectTv just can't mess with a person's football. I called them last week and told them I was switching companies and explained to them why. My neighbor did the same thing, he had Uverse. My mom and Step-dad went Xfinity a month ago., they also had Uverse. 

 

I had Uverse for 10 years and 2 channels cost them my loyalty + I am paying less for Xfinity.

I have the same games except you have Colts, I have 49ers at Steelers. The Vikings are not showing here. I will listen on NFL+ and watching Red Zone.

 

What is Uverse? Is that a cable company like Comcast, Spectrum, etc?

Yep. They are really good but they messed up with this situation. Crap happens. Hey, I am shocked I am not getting the Vikings on CBS lmao . I usually get them at least 9 or 10 times a year haha

My cable company is not showing channels owned by the Disney company such as ESPN, ABC, FX, etc. Actually, it is Disney that has taken those channels off. I don't mind. I will watch the Giants game tonight on NFL+, as ESPN is off. My friend had invited me to the Giants game tonighy. I am glad that I declined because the weather is awful -- torrential downpours and thunderstorms.

Cowboys/Giants is on WTHR/NBC, I had to get ESPN because of Monday night Football.

Julian Edelman is annoying on Fox. He talks too much. 

 

Aaron Rodgers seems so much happier as a Jet. He looks so care free. I wonder what was going on in Green Bay that he looked so unhappy. He just said he loves "everything NY Jets". He looks invigorated. Watch out for the Jets.

How things have changed for the Pats! Matt Corral was picked up off waivers by the Pats. Corral does not want to play for them. He either did not show up or left. @Chrisaaron1023 what happened there? I know you follow the Pats. haha

Actually I had no clue about this.. lol I jabbed my pats buddy's when the released all their QBs but Mac Jones. I was like WTH are y'all doing?! :lol:

 

I think Bill has lost it

He signed Zappe and Cunningham to the practice squad but elevated Zappe to the active roster after Corral went AWOL. No one seems to know what is going on with him.

I'll be watching the Jags-Colts on FOX. 

 

My late games are Eagles-Patriots on CBS, Packers -Bears FOX.  I don't know which I'll watch, might switch between both games. 

 

I like Patrick Mahomes, but KC always being in the playoffs is annoying, like the Patriots were when they were always winning.

49ers already scored a TD. 7-0 49ers

Vikings ruined 3 good drives, Kirk fumbled twice and one interception... Lost 6 points there... And then, a neutral zone infraction in 3rd down against a struggling offense to lose 7 points in last 2 minutes?

 

They've set up a nice upset win opportunity for Bucs..

 

I hope Vikings do better, much better in second half or else, we'll be in trouble 😵‍💫 in no time

49ers r in great form... I have Aiyuk in 2 fantasy teams, both on bench and he scores 2 TDs... I guess I need to trust him more.

 

I read so many here predicted Steelers win. I didn't comment, but was wondering why everyone's overestimating Pickett and not valuing enough a great team like 49ers...

I will have to watch the game in its entirety after the game. Kirk will end up having great stats but when we had chances to score, he turned the ball over. :grumpy2:

Not here. Colts fans despise the Steelers. I don't believe they picked the Steelers. I did. 

 

Did the Colts second half start yet? Lets talk Colts. I am rooting for AR and Josh Downs.

What's up with Davenport?

 

I didn't follow much on injuries, was he already going through something?

Addison had a 39 yard TD and caught both passes to him, so good start so far.

 

TEs did well too...

 

As I predicted, run game is bad. Mattison is doing well, but Ty was pathetic. I don't know why they even gave so much carries to Ty, Mattison should get BULK of carries! If not all..

 

This is NFL general game thread to talk other games other than Colts, right? Maybe, you got confused...

    • Too young. Nowadays, 71 is like being 51. Way too young.
    • I think he just needs to stay healthy. If he can do that and not regress fans will love him. 
    • He's a top 10 RT in the league when healthy, so why would you want him to move back to guard?
    • Untouchables have to be Haliburton, Turner, Siakam, Nembhard, and McConnell. Nesmith and Toppin, even maybe Mathurin in a deal with those guys could bring another all-star here. All 3 are young and good.
    • There's a lot of questions on what this team will look like next year. A lot of people are returning, but some could be used in trades if we go after, say, Paul George)   Returning Depth Chart:(under contract) PG: Haliburton, McConnell  SG: Nembhard, Mathurin, Sheppard  SF: Nesmith, Brown PF: Walker C: Turner, Jackson     Free Agents: Pascal Siakam(most likely to stay, but cost a lot $40m+) ** Doug McDermott(would like back at 2yr $10m range) James Johnson(vet min) Jalen Smith (player) - might elect to see if he can get more than $5.4m on open market  Obi Toppin (restricted)- could be expensive to retain/ potential S+T possibilities  Oscar Tshiebwe (restricted)(vet min) Quenton Jackson (restricted)(vet min) Isaiah Wong (restricted)(vet min)         So here is where the problem lays. Indy is small market, I think there is almost no chance we will go into the tax. So here is how that is looking.   1st Apron Tax Cap Space:(including $5.4m PO for Smith) $64m   **Siakam - Siakam should start around $42.6 million and could be 5yrs, $247.1m or 4yrs, $190.8 million.(This was based off of $142m, think they are looking at $141m now so could lower a bit. Not much.   So Pascal will probably most likely cost around $42.6m next season     That brings our 1st Apron Space to: $21.4m   Toppin (RFA tender $8-$10m)(more than likely will receive an offer bigger than that) Tshiebwe, Wong + Jackson - $5.6m   Down to $5.8-$7.8m in 1st Apron Space: (2 open roster spots)   McDermott? - $5m? Johnson? - $2m?     Going to be interesting, and is fast approaching.     Trade Pieces: Siakam (S+T, if can't agree on contract?) Toppin(S+T) Smith (if he picks up PO) Nesmith We also have (3) 2nd round picks and future 1st.
