    Unbelievable it wasn't deemed a catch..not also did I lose my bets today but as a Steelers fan went from high to low to ecstatic and finally to dejected.
    Yes that slight touch on his ankles from behind knocked him off his stride and his legs gave up after that.

    Looked good to me the non TD but its hard to know what is or isn't a catch at times and if its a TD or not also.

    Big Ben had a bit of a brain fart on that last play I think.

    Weird calls in the Raiders v Cowboys game last night up to HT, think it got worse in the second by the sounds of it.

    I mean it's the most ridiculous rule in the world. He completed two football moves, knee and elbow were down and was in the EZ.

    They ruled it a TD and to me (maybe I'm
    Biased) there did not seem enough to overturn it.

    Despite that we still had a shot which Ben cost us by throwing that pass.

    Honestly it goes back to that 3 and out that came from bad playcalling and then Mitchell missing what should have been an interception. You give Brady those breaks he will crush you.

    Look forward to seeing them again in he playoffs, hope we have Brown back and can finally beat them.

    Yes he broke the plane with the ball under control, its daft really when a QB reaches for the endzone and just gets it over the line before it gets knocked away by a defender, but that's enough for a TB. Seems you need to do more for a catch TB than a running one.

    Thought Pagano may have gotten another season considering their QB was out all year, which makes a huge difference to any team, look at Green Bay and Houston after the injuries to QB's.

    Can't believe the Ravens blew it last night, they haven't been great this season but expected a win last night.

    Some interesting games next week, probably going to say all home wins with possibly the Falcons v Rams the one that's harder to call, though the Rams should be fresh from resting their big guns.

    I don't think Cleveland are too far off from being half decent, if they draft right and they have enough picks to get it right they should win some next season.

    Yeah was reading a piece, that said the same thing on Cleveland, need a franchise QB and Defensive Leader, and a few to fit around them...
    I ain't too sure on Hue Jackson, but lets see....

    Brilliant comeback from the Titans to beat the Chiefs. Mariota and Henry brilliant in the second half.

    Chiefs now 6 in a row with home play off losses.

    Exactly why I didn't bet on the Chiefs. I put a chunk on Rams/Saints/Jags though.

    Bit of a slug fest the Jaguars v Bills game. Good job Bortles discovered he had some legs because his arms were missing in that one.

    Panthers v Saints up next, should be a good one this.

    Saints to win 34-26

    Two good games on Sunday for different reasons - the Jags and the Saints did well to go through two big matches

    The Rams was the most sure I felt. The better team, but outplayed on the day. It happens.

    I think there might be one upset result this weekend so that's either Tennessee beating New England or Jacksonville beating Pittsburgh.

    Atlanta should beat Philadelphia.

    New Orleans v Minnesota is a tough one to call but I've had this feeling Minnesota would make the Superbowl this year, but that could go either way.

    As long as Ben doesn't throw 5 picks again Steelers should win, can't see Titans getting past Pats.


    Saints/Vikings, two great teams. I'll call Vikings but damn it could go either way.

    So Atlanta didn't shock the No1 seeds the Eagles in their NFC semi final game, not to worry most of the experts got it wrong too

    But

    Brady at his magnificent best, as the Pats nullify Tennessee with 8 sackings

    What the hell was Williams doing or trying on that last play? I think I could of made a play then. One of the worst attempts of anything I've seen for a while.

    Brilliant comeback by the Saints but totally blow it at the end. Great game though and two great games tonight.

    Brilliant from the Jaguars to beat the Steelers, what a game. They totally blew them away in the first half but the Steelers and Big Ben wouldn't go away.

    That 4th and half a yard where the Steeers didn't just run a little QB dive was shocking and changed the game.

    28-21, momentum was with them, all they needed was a little push. Atrocious decision. Terrible play calling on both sides of the ball for the Steelers today. Ben had a good game though but shame if he goes out with that.

    That last play for the Vikings, I don't even know what to say. I though the Saints were done for, then boom they are up and then to lose like that.
