    That quarterback for the Chiefs, Mahomes is looking like a SUPERSTAR already! The kid is great. Also having "HILL" on your team doesn't hurt any either. Dang that guy is super fast!
    Mahomes' college days great plays;




    I've watched a few games this year and I've seen enough to know the refs are just as bad as they were in the last 5 years. I guess if they called all the holding calls I've seen that weren't called, a regular game would take 4 1/2 hours to get through. The front lines are grabbing each others shoulder pads during every play. :D I thought the offensive linemen weren't allowed to grad.

    Yeah.... not looking to good. They beat themselves badly tonight. You need a mistake free game and aggressive play calling on both sides of the ball to beat Brees, and the Vikings have done none of the above.

    At least Adam Thielen keeps the streak alive. I really like that kid.

    I don’t think the Vikings have much of a shot at making it past wild card weekend if they make the playoffs. The league has figured out how to read Zimmer’s defensive schemes, and protection for Cousins is worse than it was last season. With the contract Cousins signed, the Vikings will be a team in rebuild mode next season

    The Bears might just steal the division this year, and the tie against Green Bay will haunt them when it comes to seeding. They either need to find a way to win the division, or they will be going nowhere.

    Not really... they suck this year, and tonight is simply more proof of that.

    Another inferior performance by the Vikings offense. The Bears owe their season to Khalil Mack joining their defense. He takes that entire unit to another level because teams have to focus on him, and while they are busy doing that, the rest of the defense has opportunity after opportunity to make plays.

    Then the focus shifts away from him and Mack blows them apart. These Bears are legit, and they may just take the whole thing.

    Saints, Chiefs, Rams, Bears and 4 AFC teams with 7 wins. Washington was looking pretty good until today. :# A lot can happen in 6 games, though. Next week we will see a good number of teams mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, I would guess.

    Saints are crazy good, playing the best ball I've seen them play in years.

    4th down and 7....they are around midfield, already ahead by 30 +points. Breez starts walking to the sidelines thinking they are going to punt. Patton is yelling at him to go for it. Breez looks a little confused at that call, but turns around and gets in the huddle. Throws a TD pass....

    Saints have a lot of weapons on both sides of the ball. Bears won't make it too deep into the playoffs. Elite teams tend to turn it up a notch in the 4th quarter, have a great no huddle drill for that last few minutes. Bears seem to lose gas in the 4th.

    Playoffs are going to be some great games, we still have some great teams still standing and the Patriots aren't that good this year.

    Right....I mean, why not kick the extra point and go into OT, rather than risk the 2 point conversion for a win. Didn't work out for them in that case yesterday.

    I just watched one of the greatest football games in my life!!! :o:DB)

    The most points scored on Monday Night Football and the third highest scoring game in NFL history! :oB)

    Mahomes had 6 TD's and still lost... :o

    But my team lost. I pick other teams besides the Panthers on some occasions.

    My wife likes the Rams too so she'll be happy in the morning. :)


    What a GREAT GAME!!!!

    That last interception killed them. He got hit as he was in motion throwing and that took enough zip off the ball. Still, why they weren't playing shorter for field goal range, and go into OT is beyond me. Kc's defense didn't show up until the 4th anyway.

    Was kinda like watching a crazy Super Bowl game.....only more exciting.

    I don’t like games li’e this... I prefer there to be some defense, and a bit more of a battle back and forth. Shootouts are boring to watch, but that’s just my opinion.

    Anytime you get a shoot out like that, you ask yourself if either teams defense showed up.

    Rams actually looked good on both sides of the ball. Their defense was getting penetration on KC'S offensive line and Goff is no slouch throwing the ball too.

    KC has terrible pass protection, their defensive line wasn't getting any penetration until the 4th maybe late in the 3rd. Mchomes is going to be a star, just turning 23 and his first season in the NFL and the kid plays like that. He made a few rookie mistakes but even seasoned veterans make some so I don't hold it against the kid.

    That first quarter though, KC looked confused, like they weren't sure where they were at and what they were doing there. Took them awhile to settle in. Rams were on a mission from the first minute.

    Whoever plays the Saints, that's going to be a game to watch.

    Haven't heard the word "Patriots" most this season too. :)
