    How many posts until the Lions are essentially eliminated from playoff contention? O/U is currently at 40

    Browns were technically eliminated before the first snap... they were mathematically eliminated after the bad snap from the center that become a safety followed by a Philly TD. 0-16 is very, very likely.

    Not really all that upset about the 1pm games, was some really solid football.

    Agreed. It was a fantastic start to the season right there.


    Also one of the guys I have from the Lions is Theo Riddick. So far so good.

    All of the games I've gotten here have been really good so far. It's great. Just got to see the Cowboys lose by forgetting to run out of bounds while trying to make a 4th quarter comeback.

    sorry, as of this post it only took 9 posts before the Lions revealed they're not a playoff team so the under took it easily

    I figured I set the initial O/U too high

    But Riddick got me 27 points in a PPR league.

    And Marvin Jones also contributed on my other PPR league for 12 points out of a flex spot.


    Also aren't you guys winning the game right now?

    Edit: also one of the guys I'm playing against is using the Colts D lol

    I'm torn.

    On one hand, fuck the Colts. On the other, I hate being the only team in the NFC North that lost today.

    It's too early in the season for these feelings.

    I was going to make a joke about the Lions winning the division this year, but Google beat me to it.

    I was genuinely about to write about the lack of Harambe memes and then I saw the tabs.

    To be fair, it really didn't matter if they were in St. Louis or Los Angeles... the Rams suck.

    All they have is Gurley. No QB. No TE. No WR. Opponents are just going to load 8 in the box against that team. That's why Gurley went from amazing to mediocre at the end of last season, and why I avoided drafting him in any of my leagues this year. Gurley is good, but the only back I've seen able to be successful against a defense loading the box is Adrian Peterson (and even he can't do it anymore; and Minnesota at least has Bridgewater, even though he's hurt and Bradford sucks but is better than Keenum, Diggs and I forget the TE out there, Rudolph maybe?). Gonna be a long season for the Rams, sadly, I think.

    Stupid Bills fire Greg Roman as OC after putting up 31 and giving up 37 to the Jets. Yeah, that's your problem, not the Ryan brothers. Good work you stupid team.

    Heard about that. Morons over there. Not to mention, he turned Tyrod Taylor into a serviceable QB.

    Cleveland scored 3 offensive touchdowns in one quarter against a team that only gave up 7 points to the Bills in 4 quarters.

    What is this madness?

    That NFL Women commercial is bullshit.

    No woman would ever willingly be a Bills fan.

    Thursday night will be a debacle with Jacoby Brissett trying to not die and also be competitive against that Texans defense.

    It will be boring. Lots of hand offs to Blount and punting. Patriots have no other QBs on the roster so Edelman is most likely the backup QB for now.

    I hear even Rex Ryan's wife is a Patriots fan.

    I have a feeling the actual "backup" will be Garroppolo, but it's irrelevant. It's going to be 30-35 handoffs to Blount. He'll average 3.0 YPC, and all the Blount supporters will come out the woodwork when he nets 90 yards. It's frustrating because Gronk won't be playing again and Brissett deserves a chance to throw. The Patriots can defeat the Texans. It's just playing like it's another game and not out-thinking yourself. You can't run on the Texans.
