    Daniel Jones looked so much like Mark Sanchez last night - just that total "idk what to do here" vibe at all times, throwing picks 5 yards past the line of scrimmage when he didn't have a single receiver in the area. if you didn't know you'd never think that guy was the starter.

    Well now that Rex Ryan has some new video to fawn over - would appear to be a broken toe:

    Rooting for the Cowboys tomorrow. I'm not a Cowboys fan but I still kinda hate the Raiders. Especially their fans.

    Before the Cards moved from St. Louis to Phoenix, Cowboys games were piped in on Sundays. Even now, many who've lived here a while are residual Cowboys fans.

    That was a Raider fumble. If the receiver’s arm wasn’t grabbed, once he had two hands on the ball solid, he would not have lost it. Defense shouldn’t cause an incomplete pass, but the refs said it did. Wrong, if it was an incomplete pass, defensive interference should have been called.

    The officiating in this game is abysmal. Phantom penalties galore. I guess it's not unusual anymore, but for fans of the game, it's disheartening.

    Horrible false start call on the Raiders center for a head nod on the snap.

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    Sean Payton, you're supposed to be a top coach. Did you really think a 15 yard pass by your punter on 4th and 1 was a higher percentage play than a run? Smh.

    Me thinks Sean Payton loves him some Sean Payton

    Besides, the punter wisely threw the ball where he needed to when the defender clamped down on the gunner, who played it like a gunner and not a receiver.

    Cam looks rattled. Too early to celebrate.

    ^Usual Cam-ness.

    Still better than Darnold.

    Well, we're up 20 and 10 minutes left. I think we win. One more win after this one and we're Bowl eligible. I don't mean Super Bowl..

    Boy did the Titans not rise to the occasion today. Blew opportunities left and right. Belichick isn't ready for retirement just yet.

    Pats looked good in the second half.

    Browns outplayed in the first half, but hanging in there. Still not hopeful.

    Can Baker make plays to win?

    The Eagles and their fans got a wake-up call yesterday, after an embarrassing loss to the lowly Giants and their absolutely terrible QB. Many here were convinced that Jalen Hurts is the answer at QB for the Eagles, but hopefully yesterday proved to those folks that they're delusional.

    I'll give Nick Sirriani credit for adapting his game planning for his personnel, with more of a running game and trying to hide Hurts' deficiencies as a passer, but even when Hurts was able to step up in the 4th quarter, the Eagles' lack of depth at WR was exposed.

    They need a lot of work before they'll contend.

    Looks like there will be a below 500 team in the playoffs in the NFC, Seahawks are still in it! Woohoo (at least until tonight) Who the hell wants to watch the Seahawks at Washington?
