    Packers ordering up another Reed end around. Surely it’ll work the 8th time.

    Of course I'm going to get the senario where three NFC North teams get into the playoffs at 9-8 and the Lions aren't one of them.

    When you see the amazing offense drop off a cliff like we see, not being one half or one game- the same problem has been going on for multiple games- you really wonder if this is permanent or not. Especially when 3 of the last 4 games are up against some real defenses. The Vikings offense sucks, sure. But the D is really good. I’ll write off Dallas as a loss, and Denver is really playing well.

    So the only games I can see winning is Minnesota. Thanks to their D- it’s 50/50.

    Have to be realistic here. If the issue was just Baltimore and 3/4 of Chicago, I’d have a much better feeling. But it’s been every game since the ravens to different degrees.

    That's because they've played 20 good minutes of football since the bye. 5 vs. Chicago at home, 15 vs. New Orleans. Lost to <.500 Chicago and Green Bay (at the time) and won a 41-38 shootout vs. a Chargers team that beat the Pats 6-0. Very little of that imbues one with confidence.

    It's like observing the dread of Mets fans. When they're winning, it's only so it will hurt more.

    I have to say, it sure seems that the only people who think the Lions can win the north are non Lions fans.

    Looking at the rest of the schedule, they will go maybe 2-2 if the Vikings can’t figure themselves out. More likely the Vikings D will force another 3-0 game, so the lions finish 1-3.

    And looking at GBs final games, including tonight they can easily go 4-1. if the pack and lions tie, the packers get the division thanks to H2h.

    They deserve it. The rest of the NFC except Dallas is collapsing.

    I guess we're going to have a 1970s NFL conference finals. Dallas vs San Francisco and Miami vs Baltimore (albeit the wrong team).

    I've seen 0-0 games that were white knuckle and well played, and I've seen 0-0 that were incompetent and laughable (and Ivy). So this was the latter?

    The weird thing is they (or at least Mahomes) seem far more upset over an objectively correct call than they were over the missed DPI last week against Green Bay. Maybe the pressure finally sank in this game with the Broncos only a game behind now.

    why is mahommies special?!? :/)
    Just saw a lot of replays of that. I honestly can’t see another option for the ref. He was beyond the ball, and the penalty was called well before the play got really going- so the ref had no idea that they would score. Can’t blame him for making the call on a specific play.

    The refs overlooked a lot of illegal formation for KC in the Lions game, and it really did matter when facing an edge rusher. It took 4 quarters for it to be finally called. So I’ll call bs on the refs and leeway. Let alone, had the receiver looked at the ref before the play, he would have been told he was over the line.

    Sucks to be them.
