    Mayfield just threw TD pass #27, breaking the midget Wilson’s rookie record. If the Browns had canned that bum Jackson last year and Mayfield began the season as a starter, he may gone for close to 40.

    Almost as though someone told the Vikings to put a lid on Thielen.......

    so first Kelce breaks Gronk's single season receiving yards for a TE record, then Kittle pulverizes it with a long TD catch!

    It was painful watching the Vikings’ offense today........the hate/blame for Kurt Cousins will be painful over the offseason

    Browns lose. Ravens should be one and done in the Playoffs.

    Passing is overrated, NFL teams just need to jettison all of those white guys and get themselves Eraserheads.

    He sort of slipped thru the cracks when he broke the 100-yard receiving games record, and simply could not be allowed to break anymore WR marks. It makes zero sense that he would receive so few targets in the 2nd half of the year. I saw some of those games, it’s not like Thielen was constantly double teamed. It was simply Cousins not looking his way or targeting him.

    Hate to say it, but Cousins only has himself to blame. 4-25 against teams with winning records?? Ouch.

    Yeah, but Mayfield played a helluva game, the Ravens came very close to losing. Baker threw for around 400 yards against what's been the league's best defense since Blank Canvas became the starter. Really topnotch rookie year for him.

    And Kelce and Kittle both breaking the season yardage record for tight ends on the same day is spectacular! Especially for Kittle to do it in just his second season.

    The day's big bummer was the Vikings; apparently Thielen was too successful in the first half of the season, they were like a totally different team down the stretch, from having a high-scoring dynamic offense to a crap one.

    At least Green Bay got to see a return on their investment when they foolishly traded for Deshone Kizer. He looked just as bad as he did last year when he started and lost all those games for the 0-16 Browns.

    If Big Unreal were here he would say the Vikings were told not to pass to Thielen and the Browns were told to lose. Another possilbe conspiracy. Lol.

    Congrats to Kelce and Kittles. Also loved the Sorenson int return along with many other plays this weekend. Glad to see Kumerow get a few more receptions
    to end the season. Good heading into next year along with many of the other young stars mentioned above and others that were hurt this season.

    Also want to congratulate the pats on a nice game. As far as young quaterbacks, we have alot of our young guys playing at a high level. The future is bright.

    "Lamar Jackson has revolutionized the league, no one knows how to play this offense!"

    It's easy. Stack the box, force him to beat you with his arm.

    Also compare the reaction and analysis from the TV talking heads between Tebow and Lamar. Tebow had a playoff win before losing to the Patriots and then never started another game, sat behind Butt Fumble. Lamar is starting over a SB winning QB his rookie year.

    Didnt watch much NFL this year but certainly seemed like the Ravens had lots of white players.

    Hoping that the bye week will give NE much needed rest and time to formulate game plans to take them to another SB. Would luv to see the GOAT along with white skill players rub salt in the wounds of the MSM.

    They have three good White TEs, more White o-linemen than before (and they're damn good too), and still have Weddle at safety and Brent Urban has finally gotten healthy and made some plays as a rotational d-lineman.

    I don't know about you guys but I'd like to see the Pats and Eagles get back to the SB in a rematch with the opposite outcome. Philly could be dangerous again in the NFC. Seeding aside, nobody will want to play them if/when they beat Chicago...

    It’s too bad the plantation grabbed the 5th seed and can definitely go to Dallas and win that game. If they went to Chicago instead, there’s no way they win there.

    Witn the Vikings out, there’s not much to root for in the NFC. If NE can clean things up on offense, that’s really the only team left to root for in the playoffs.

    Colts O-Line is what 3/5 or more some plays snowplow? Man, Luck is having time and looking sharp.

    Andrew Luck reminds me in some ways of Ben Roethlisberger. Both are huge, very strong, mobile QBs that would do anything to extend a play to help their team win but who took a big-time beating in the process, to the point that it seemed possible that Luck's career might be over.

    Now the Colts have invested some serious resources in a quality o-line (which is often all-White depending on injuries), while the Steelers did the same a few years ago, adding G David DeCastro as a first round draft pick and developing Alejandro Villaneuva at tackle along with their sumos. Makes a world of difference for QBs like Big Ben and Luck that excel at extending plays and avoiding sacks with a minimum of protection. Luck looks great again, which from CF's perspective is one of the understated positive stories of the 2018 season.

    At least Seattle and Dallas have to play each other in the wild card round, so one quotaback is guaranteed to be knocked out of the playoffs early. Hopefully it's Wilson and the rest of Pete's vile Plantation.

    Colts up 14-0 against the odious Titans.

    The Colts with a two score lead with 4:00 left. They are good castebuster team to possibly pull for if the Pats are knocked out. Good and quality QB, cool Head Coach, snowplow OL, even some TE, and D guys that are stand up guys. No wiggerism from our guys on that team that I can tell. Luck is a humble quality guy, seems like.

    Looks like Luck and the Colts will be going to Houston. Hopefully they can knock out that awful squad.

    I've little sympathy for Cousins to be honest, it's his fault for going away from Thielen (and Rudolph, until last week!).
