The Pack signed Davante Adams to a 4-year deal on Friday. Smart move to do it now because it allows them to prorate bonus money toward this year's cap.

I would love nothing more than for the Cards to beat the Seahawks and knock them out of the playoffs.

I don't get what Tomlin is doing. At least play Big Ben and Bell in the 1st half and monitor what's going on in NE. If NE goes up big early, then sit your guys.

Re: 2017 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 17

Just read that this is the first time since 1977 that the NFL Regular Season hasn't ended with a Prime Time game! Concerns about ratings on NYE cited as the reason. After seeing the miserable CFP ratings on NYE the past few years, I can see why.

I guess he figures since NE isn't sitting anyone and are only playing the Jets, their odds of winning are pretty good... and he has enough confidence to beat 0-15 Browns without Ben and Bell to win. I guess the last few years of injuries at te end of the season and in the playoffs has him playing it safe this year.

Re: 2017 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 17

Coleman drops an easy catch to turnover the ball on downs... and to lose the game to have the Browns go winless for the season.

It's just the way of the Browns.

Perfect season!

Looks like Tomlin made the right decision on benching Ben and Bell.

Having to watch the Chiefs game on mute with play by play calling from the radio. I just canít listen to the woman on CBS call the game.

I’ve tried to be better here, but I draw the line on football.

I thought Sunday Night football began in the early 1990's(or late 1980's) with TNT? I can't recall before that(memory isn't that good anymore).

Myles Garrett with a ringing endorsement for Hue Jackson

So it's any woman calling a game, not this particular one?

I know a ton of women who are football fans so it makes sense to diversify if they know their stuff.

Maybe so, I just expect the play callers to be ex players or coaches. Okay game so far for the Chiefs Mahomes has made a few mistakes and an INT, but they are threatening to score now before half.

Man, Goodwin just got absolutely wrecked in SF game. Wasn't a bad hit, imho, since defender led with shoulder. Goodwin just happened to be going down at the time.

They used to end Week 16/17 with a MNF game.

Patrick Mahomes II looks really good. Great arm strength. Present is good and future looks bright for the Chiefs.
