NFL 2016: The Regular Season Thread

Recommended Posts

The Dolphins aren't ready for the playoffs, maybe another year or two, but not this year. Most (if not all) of their wins came against bad teams and of course when they play playoff contenders, they get torched. It's gonna be great watching David Johnson run all over them next week...

 

Oh, and can they please stop playing the Ravens ever year? They can't (and can never) beat them.

Once again, FIRE THEM MOTHER:censored:ING CANNONS. Tied for the lead in the south. IN DECEMBER. What is this I don't even 

 

 

Redskins lost, so that means the Bucs are in the playoffs as of now!

The Cowboys are the first team to clinch a playoff spot this season. Thank you, Arizona. Now let's go win the division next week.

Good for the Bucs. They've proved themselves down the stretch. 

 

Packers and Cardinals won't die. As usual. 

 

Happy Pittsburgh won. That's huge for us.  Especially over a team with a great receiving corps. Our defense has come together and we can be a scary team if we can get in.

This Raiders team is awesome

 

Question: was a combined winning percentage of .136/16 games under .500 the worst record heading into a game in a long time? Can't imagine many more worse of recent vintage. I can't believe a single non-required market carried that 49ers-Bears game but apparently Indianapolis did.

The Bay Area didn't get a doubleheader.

Early game was SF/CHI. BUF/OAK was also stand alone as the second game (inbetween fire updates).

Sacramento got the Giants-Steelers game, too. Only the Niners game in the morning though. I napped.

Ditto. Our secondary, which was a much maligned unit for most of the year, has quietly turned into a strength. Sean Davis and Artie Burns are really stepping up as rookies.

The Cowboys-Bucs game in Week 15 has been flexed to Sunday Night Football.

 

Serious question, when was the last time Tampa was on SNF?

 I love seeing the Bucs get some primetime love, but the Cowboys shouldn't get two straight SNF games. We get it, the league loves when the Cowboys are good.

 

The NFL should have flexed the Giants-Cowboys game out of primetime. :D

201 victories for Brady is great, though not a stat which springs to mind including playoff wins.

Seems like Kansas City keeps finding new and unique ways to bail out Alex Smith.

 

A. Smith (vs. ATL (12/4)) 

C/ATT  21/25

YDS     270    

AVG     10.8  

TD        1  

INT       0  

SACKS 1-4  

QBR     91.2 

RTG     125.0

 

What bailing out did they need to do for Smith??? Smith may not be the "sexiest" playing QB in the league but the disrespect he gets even after what he did last week against Denver and again with Atlanta is baffling.

I think 2008, Seattle @ Tampa Week 7.

 

Correct, the night Mike Alstott was inducted in the ring of honor and the day the Rays clinched a World Series berth and before flex scheduling was in place.

 

To me this matchup is more important as flex scheduling usually moves relevant matchups.
