Indeed, though ya never know...these Keenums exist! But yeah will be nice to put KC to a real test, one I do think they can pass. Denver isn't unbeatable. Well no one is, but they just don't have the feel of the 07 Pats. KC can bring some major pressure and Peyton may not be in prime form with his old legs

Yea I read that today also....I did not look closely but it could be teams that are all bunched up at 5-5, so they are fighting hard.
I have not watched a KC game...are they that good?

Percy Harvin coming in for Seattle worries me a little, only because he hasn't played all year long and it might disrupt the timing of some plays.  Could just be being a pessimist here, but it something I thought of.

So is there any chance that the Packers can beat the Giants with a 3rd string quarterback who wasn't on the roster before last week?

If you have to ask clearly you havn't watched the GiantsLOLCry
They sure as hell can, but it's more than just the QB...I know their WR corp is a little beat up, and their O line has not been protecting as well as their usual.
 
So, if the Giants can keep up stopping the run (which is their lone bright spot this year) and force Tolzien to step up, there is hope for us. Esp with that O line, maybe we can eek out some pass rush (though that's quite some wishful thinking on my part). All I've say is I feel OK about this game, hope not high but there's some. Thankful Rodgers is out for sure

Almost impressive game from Tennessee. They have a quietly good secondary, and that line seems to be fairly strong. Shame they don't really have a QB and a weak set of WRs. Could be a pretty good team!

 
Speaking of which, a big chance for Carolina to prove themselves. SF was a pretty good test, but the Pats are a different beast. Their D has been damn impressive but it's not been a threatening stretch either...If they can beat up Brady and co then I'll really be impressed!
Same with the Chiefs, some potentially epic games this weekend!

So great to have Andre Brown back Heart
our o line is still sh*t, it seems his avg distance before being hit is 1 foot, but he's such a solid and powerful back. And it's damn nice to see the Giants actually run the ball well again.


Geno Smith continues to be a rookie. The Detroit Calvin Johnson Lions lose to the Stillers and Tampa wallops the lowly Falcons.

Some good 4:30 games, tonight is the epic matchup and even tomm's has potential. Sweet football weekend

Yep, the Lions proved today that they're still far away from being one of the best in the NFC.  Just disastrous.

Well pretty hard when the team is quite literally  4 or maybe 5 people but yes, I enjoy the weather vane that is "LIONS!!! CAN BEAT ANYONE PRETTY MUCH" and "clearly this is another 50 years of misery"

Another fairly uninspiring win over a lack luster team, but is what it is and I'll take it.
Shame to think if the Giants were any good at all could easily have only 1 or 2 losses but eh, just glad we've racked up at least a few.

Let's wait until after the playoffs. I'm hoping a Cincinnati team will advance this year!

Stillers go from last to 2nd in the division with win over the Lions  (I know, we have same record as Browns and Ravens, but have the tie breakers at the moment).  At least its keeping hope alive for the season, albeit false hope.
 
I think the Lions were mesmerized by those hideous Steeler uniforms yesterday...LOL

Not that it matters because MoM never accepts anything buuuuut:

A long while ago I said yall (Steeler fans) may hate Arians but things seemed pretty OK to me
Coaches and all play a role but get too much credit and blame
The Steelers, overall, will be fine. God forbid you have a couple of sub par years.
 
Well, ever since Todd Haley came on board I've heard nothing but wanting his head carried on a pike, esp this year with Pittburgh's offenseive struggles.
But now...they've turned it on and the exact same cast of players looks good suddenly!
And, they are now 4-6 with a not so bad schedule ahead. Not a good year at all, but gunna wind up OK. Certainly more than was expected after their bad start.
 
Maybe it was just a tad soon to be moaning about the end of the Steelers as we know it? Wink

I'm still not sold on the idea that they're not. The Broncos prior to tonight had only played one good team and got beat by them so I don't buy the strength of schedule / paper tiger thing for the Chiefs. They lost by 10 points on the road to Denver when they turned the ball over twice in the red zone. We'll see what happens when they meet again at Arrowhead.

I was OK with Arians as well, he and Ben had a good relationship and I think that was part of Ben's slow acceptance of Haley (if he has).  Ben not being the sharpest tool in the shed was/is struggling with the new offensive format or concept.  I am still undecided on Haley since our O line never can get cohesive due to injuries and can get the running game going.
 
The defense worries me more than the offense...
 
Yes, we are due some sub par years...LOL

Yeah, that was just round 1.  Round 2 in a couple of weeks.  I expect a close game, for sure.
 
BTW, the Panthers just beat the Patriots.  Everyone else in the NFC look out, this team is for real.  Kind of reminds me of when the Seahawks got red hot last year.
