The Chiefs have sure lost their mojo.

Maybe they should have kept the guy who kicked that woman across the hotel lobby.

Nice call by Decker, and nice win for the Seahawks.

It would be a crime if they did the same thing like they did in 2017 with no SNF

SNF is the only chance I can watch real football living in the 49ers/Raiders TV Market.

As far as I can tell, not a single 1:00 game next Sunday means jack shit. All the meaningful games are packed into the 4:25 slot except for SNF.
The 49ers @ Rams game belongs in the 10am window.

It sucks though it helped in fantasy where nobody had him on their teams in the playoffs.

The Rams at 1:00 EST would mean that the Bears would already know if they had anything to play for before they took the field in Minnesota. This is especially problematic as a Rams loss to the 49ers at home is rather unlikely. Not sure the Bears would try very hard on the road if they have nothing to play for. So having Bears/Vikes, Rams/Niners and Eagles/Skins all going at the same time maximizes drama, even though most fans will only be able to watch one of them.

If they were going to move one of those three games to 1:00, they should move the Eagles/Skins game.

If they move the Eagles game to 1pm then the Vikings would know ahead of time if they still needed to win to be in the playoffs.

The Seahawks/Chiefs game was very entertaining.

True, although keep in mind that I said "if" one of the games were to be moved. My statement is only based on the assumption that the line on the Eagles game would be more one-sided than on the Vikings game. In looking at the Las Vegas numbers right now, I am right, but not nearly as much as I would have guessed. It looks like Vegas is assuming that the Bears are not going to play that hard.

Re: 2018 NFL Regular Season Thread -- Week 16

Interestingly, Chicago gets to choose their wildcard opponent; that is, assuming the LA Rams does not face plant against the 49ers. The Eagles would become 6th seed if they win and the Vikings lose, but if the Vikings win then they would be in the playoffs instead.

Too much offense.

It was like watching an NBA game.

Matt Millen underwent successful heart transplant surgery today.

That's great news. He was waiting for new heart for over 3 months. Christmas miracle.

As a Raiders fan, I don't know if I should be happy to potentially leave Oakland with a win, or be pissed they keep fucking up their draft position.

Yes but now the bay area is stuck with 49ers/rams and chiefs/raiders at 1:25pm and we get none of the games that matter.

I don't think it is worth it waking up before 10am to watch football in week 17.

The Pats and Texans games decide who gets the bye. But usually the 1p slate is pretty weak in Week 17.

They've always flexed a game into SNF Week 17. Except last year where there was no single win-and-in game and it was also NYE.

They're never going to kick off a game in L.A. at 10a local time.

In theory, but I think you'll agree that there is very little chance of NE losing at home to the Jets. I'm actually pretty surprised that the Texans are only -7 at home against Jacksonville.

Yup, you're surely correct. I was just reminded that I will actually be driving for most of the day on Sunday so the only game I will even get to see much of at all will be the SNF game.

I know but it should be moved to 10am to punish the Niners for not putting a good product on the field for most of this century.
