Big games for SF and Seattle this week.  If SF beats NO, they still control their own destiny for a #1 seed by beating the Rams and Falcons at home and then winning the big showdown with Seattle in week 17.  If they lose at New Orleans, they are probably looking at a wild card unless the Rams can beat Seattle this week.  

Just for curiosity's sake, I looked up the San Fran-Seattle tiebreak scenarios and if the teams should finish with identical records, Seattle gets the division based on the fifth tiebreaker, which is Strength of Victory (meaning win-loss records of non-common opponents). San Francisco has wins over the 3-9 Redskins and 9-3 Packers, while the Seahawks have beaten Minnesota (8-4) and Philadelphia (5-7).

 

You've got to figure Seattle has the edge here since Washington isn't likely to help the Niners' cause. I just wonder how long Seattle can keep winning razor's edge games. They've played 10 one-score games, and their point differential is just +36. At some point the law of averages would seemingly have to catch up with them.

The Jets have placed C.J. Mosley on injured reserve. Never thought he was worth the money they paid him, but I still hope he makes it all the way back.

Cowboys playing poorly again, behind 31-14 with 13 minutes to go.

 

They have a lot of talent, but play with little energy

For as much as I have been critical of John Harbaugh's shortcomings in the past, one of the most important events in Ravens history was when Jason Garrett turned down the offer to be HC in order to wait his turn in Dallas. Harbaugh has always been a little better, and now that he's seemingly been rejuvenated by having Lamar Jackson, it's laughable to think some (me included) were a little disappointed when Garrett snubbed the Ravens.

No one seems all that interested in claiming the NFC East crown. Maybe Washington will win out. ;)

I thought the Ravens and the Texans already exposed the Pats D.

Funny thing is, as bad as Dallas has been, that loss last night didn't hurt them all that much.  They can even lose next week at home to the Rams and still control their own destiny for the division.  As long as they beat Philadelphia in Philly, and win the final weekend over the Skins at home, they will be the division winner......with an 8-8 record.

I have never seen as many calls go against the Patriots at home as I have today.  They were denied a chance to advance a fumble recovery because of a quick whistle, then they called a receiver OB short of the end zone when it was actually a TD, and they had a TD catch called incomplete.  The fumble and TD called OB were clearly bad calls.

Never. And yet, they were right in it at the end.

Yea those are huge calls that went against them.

I know we are all happy to see it but it’s awful that terrible officiating continues to cost teams games.

Do agree.

Had to be frustrating for them not being able to challenge.
