The NFL is too damn inconsistent with what is or is not pass interference. 

 

The Giants' CB Jenkins got absolutely screwed on a DPI and I have no idea why. He was in perfect coverage. 

 

I mean, I'll take it, but that bad call led directly to a Cowboys' touchdown. 

 

Maybe there should be automatic reviews of certain calls.  Maybe have a review for personal fouls for blows to the head and unnecessary roughness, and pass interferences over 15 yards.  Too often the entire game is changed because someone is called for a hard hit that was actually legal, or grazing the QBs helmet with a finger tip but maybe it looked like a smack from one angle, or a PI which often times could go either way.

They also currently have sole possession of first place in the NFC West (which I never expected at any point).

Just as the Jaguars and Bills with their respective divisions....

The Los Angeles Rams are the highest scoring team in the NFL.

 

(Things I never expected to say this season.)

Colts coach Chuck Pagano on his 46-9 loss to the Rams:

 

"We got out asses kicked. Credit the 49ers."

 

I'm sure San Francisco will take it.

The officiating was questionable in all 3 games I watched. I'm no Seahawks fan but they got the short end several times. The DBs absolutely mugged Graham on that end zone play. In the Falcons-Bears game, an Atlanta WR was hit immediately a full yard short of the marker and driven backwards but the ball was spotted at the line of gain and the Falcons given a first down. A full yard error for NFL officials is ridiculous. (Have a screenshot but it won't upload.)

They reported an attendance "60,000", but I suspect it was less. However, that stadium is so massive, that having anything less than 70,000 makes the stadium look empty. Hell, when I attended the preseason opener last year, there was 89,000 at the stadium, but there still were lots of empty seats. Unless if you've been in the stadium, it's hard to truly appreciate how big it is. 

 

I imagine that also because it's a day game, less people show up because of how hot it is. USC suffers from this same issue too when they have day games. 

 

Also, when looking at buying tickets off of ticketmaster, there's hardly any seats available for any home game you select. Only a handful. I imagine a lot of people bought tickets with no intention of actually going, but rather trying to make some money by selling them on sites like StubHub.

A lot of people were commenting on how good Dallas's defense was last night.

 

Dallas smothered Eli and the Giants O-Line looked completely shellshocked and overwhelmed from the get-go.

 

As a fan, that's encouraging to hear. But, the Giants played this game without Odell; and while I'm not wanting to make excuses for a win (a win's a win), but Dallas could play a much closer, smothering style of play because Eli had no reliable deep threat to stretch 'em out.

is there a site that has stats like that?  I'm curious what opposing qb has the most wins in Philadelphia over a period of time

I assume there must be somewhere that lists that, but I'm not sure, maybe somewhere in the depths of ProFootballReference?

 

I saw it through Sportsnet Stats on Twitter FWIW.

Good God, the Saints look like absolute garbage tonight.  It may be a bit early to predict, but after 3 consecutive 7-9 losing seasons, this season will be the one that will end the Sean Payton/ Drew Brees era.

I doubt it. 

 

Drew Brees will eventually statpad his way to some random NFL record this season, which is all the excuse they need to keep both of them.

I'm liking the Spanish broadcast on ESPN 2. Much better alternate then having to hear Gruden.

That look that Adrian Peterson gave Payton in the second half....this Peterson thing isn't going to last long in New Orleans.
