    Since Thielen's epic stretch of games, it seems the Vikings have made a concerted effort to not include him in the game plan. When Cousins was locked on to Thielen in the first half of the season the offense was solid. Now the Vikings look like an expansion team offense. The offensive coordinator needs to get fired. And Dalvin Cook is far below average. The good news is that this may help C-Mac get into the playoffs.

    Russell Wilson 10/20 72 0 TDs 1 INT... Epic stats for someone they can't shut the **** up about.

    That game went downhill in a hurry. I hate the Seahawks.

    Fumble recovery for a TD.

    Either the Vikings offense is horrendously bad or the Seattle defense is Legion of Boom 2.0. The answer is probably somewhere in the middle.

    actually watching them, it seems like one of the few teams that teaches how to tackle properly.

    Yes, that's always been a Pete Carroll team strength. But they also teach them to constantly grab the receivers. Just think Richard Sherman and his antics, and for some reason the refs just let it go. Like it would be too much trouble to call defensive holding on every play.

    Thielen finished with 70 receiving yards and 8 rushing yards...and his ankle was healthy enough to finish the game. I wish he would of had 30 more receiving yards, but it wasn't so bad in the end.

    Vikes could still get in with wins in their last three, very doable: Fins, Lions, and Bears in week 17 in Minn. And the Bears also may be resting players in that game if their seeding cannot change. Very possible.

    Eagles have it tougher...Rams in L.A. next...

    I’m glad I didn’t bother watching this stinker. MIN, a supposed playoff contender and white friendly team comes to Seattle and lays a massive egg against one of the most odious teams in the NFL. Even the pitiful Packers put up a better effort a couple of weeks ago and could’ve won were it not for some boneheaded play calls by Fat Mike McCharty.

    This despicable team is all but in now, what a disappointment. They were completely out of it three weeks ago, but they’ve been playing a bunch of teams in full blown implosion mode and that’s sometimes what the doctor orders, as the saying goes.

    I’m sure FootballDad is looking forward to the “Caramel Bowl” two weeks from now, I know I am. :D

    I have had dental visits less painful than the game last night.

    I won't attempt to diagnose the Vikings. They still have a shot at the playoffs as they have Miami at home then at Detroit and finish with the Bears at home, who may not have anything to play for by then.

    LB Ben Gideon played a lot and played pretty well as did the Vikings defense ( sort of) but their offense never got on track. They can't develop a running game which allows defenses to double cover Thielen. Still there is enough talent on offense to get back in gear and I suspect Thielen will finish up strong. My guess is they slip into the playoffs despite their recent poor play.

    I think Cousins needs to step up when the pressure is on and he has had some trouble with that this season but he is good enough to pull the team through.

    Meanwhile the ultra annoying Seahawks and their slippery eel QB grate like hell. Wilson really has lived the charmed life. What other QB could get away with passing numbers like last night and come out on top?

    I am not sold on Seattle who has been on a roll lately but the bastards have wiggled into the playoffs it seems so we will have to contend with them for a while now.

    Three weeks to go and hopefully things turn around a bit after this past week which had too many gaffes and horror moments (dialing Patriots).

    Think back a few years when we were hoping for and anticipating a Patriots/ Packers Super Bowl. Sadly I can't think of teams today that match those teams as far as an anti caste pedigree. But I am clear in my mind who I don't want to win and Seattle is at the top of the list.

    Pete’s Plantation is obviously most dangerous when they are at home surrounding by hoards of screaming DWFs and mangina, liberal cuckholds. Since they can’t win the division, they’ll be on the road. Now if they end up against the weak winner of the NFC East, likely Dallas, then they have a punchers chance. Either way, I don’t see them being able to beat any of the teams they'd face in round two.

    On a bright note, we have 3 receivers in the top 10 in the nfl in receiving. That is not bad considering all of the injuries. Thielen has fallen to
    3rd overall but I'm hoping he can get back to 2nd next weekend. He is not trailing by much. Kelce and Kittle have been amazing. Let's try to
    look at some positives with all of the bad news lately.

    Very happy to see Zenner get to run the ball on the whole drive. If they let him start he could easily get 100 yards. Detroit is so dumb! They refuse
    to play their best running back the majority of the time! Maybe they will suprise us next Sunday. I sure hope so.

    The Pats despite the loss are clicking on offense. They will need to with that pop warner defense. Never count Brady out though. He is still pissed about
    the super bowl last year.

    Good points, White Lightning.

    The fact that we have three in the top ten with the incredible racial disparity and discrimination is outstanding. Even Gronk had a good receiving stats day. Hopefully, our guys can finish strong in high profile ways.

    I like the Pats of course but if somehow they are bounced in the playoffs I'd like to see Philip Rivers and his Chargers knock off the Mahomes' Chief machine. One can pretty much guarantee that the AFC title game is going through Arrowhead Stadium, and if it's not the Pats I hope it's Rivers & Co. It could be his last shot and he's a great guy who's very deserving.

    The Dolphins had something like 21 white players on the roster at the beginning of the season, more than the Patriots. Not sure how many they have now.

    Good question. If you watch the pandemonium at the end zone following the miracle, I saw a good number of white players in that mix, so safe to say they have more whites than the Patriots. No doubt I can get behind the Dolphins to get the last wildcard over Baltimore or Indy.

    Patriots defense has no business in the playoffs to be honest. Unless Brady makes the offense click like they use to (and stop forcing throws to useless punks), I'm not sure how far they can go, as it's not like they score 40 points a game anymore.

    That's been the main issue with this team. Brady has not clicked with his offense at all this year. They thought not paying Amendola, shunning Hogan and bringing in Josh Gordon would help, but it has not worked. Amendola was clutch on 3rd down and Hogan stretched the field. If anything, the FO will be making it an easy decision for Brady to retire sooner rathar than later. Defense has never been top 5, just scrappy and resilient.
