Jags blew that big time but what will go unnoticed is how many penalties the Patriots got away with again.

Game turned end of the first half, had the Jags got the play away in time it's all she wrote.

Well played Cooks. The guy is probably the best deep threat in the game and the Jags secondary bottled it against him. Brady just lobbed regulation high balls to him and they kept drawing the flag although the one at the end of the first half was very cheap.

Who is more likely to beat the Patriots - the Vikings or the Eagles? I think the Vikings but I can't have Case Keenum beating Tom Brady, maybe if he gets replaced by Sam Bradford somehow they have a chance in the SB.

On another note, is it just me or has it been a relatively unenjoyable and boring NFL season? Obviously not for Patriot, Eagles and Vikings fans but just so many serious injuries to the big players, Aaron Rodgers getting injured was a massive downer in my opinion (don't support the Pack but you want the great man playing) and the quality hasn't been great.

Jon Gruden coming back to the Raiders is very interesting and hopefully the big players will be back in rude health next season.

Report Swagger January 21, 2018 11:38 PM GMT
Blake Bortles had a very solid game. I disagree with Romo and thought he underthrew the receiver at the end by 5 yards as if the throw is on the money then the cornerback would not have been to undercut the throw. It was a walk in touchdown if he threw it a little higher. Hard to criticise the guy as he's done very well on the whole today but it's the type of throw you would see Big Ben, Drew Brees etc make to win the game.
Report sewter lives again January 21, 2018 11:40 PM GMT

Keenum keeps getting it done though cant argue with that
Report Swagger January 21, 2018 11:54 PM GMT
Although a different QB, Keenum reminds me of Prescott last year. Overrated because of the players around him. He has two excellent wide outs, an underrated tight end, a strong running game and a decent O-Line. The defense is one of the best in the league so they keep giving him chances. Bradford only played with this team once this season and he didn't do too badly against a decent enough Saints defense this season.

I want Keenum to do well but you just know he will be like a rabbit in the headlights against Brady whereas I think Bradford has the ability to have like a one off excellent game to get it done.
Report Swagger January 21, 2018 11:55 PM GMT

No I can understand someone picking Bradford over Case when there is no other option , I just think Bradford has had enough chances over the years. All he has is a big arm , he is dreadful under pressure , can't make the right calls at the line of scrimmage and makes Tom Brady look like Usain Bolt. Has stolen huge contracts for years
Report Swagger January 22, 2018 12:10 AM GMT
dlarsson - I agree and as I state I wouldn't want him as my QB but in a one off game, he has the ability to randomly play a great game and it would take that to beat Brady than a steady Eddie like Bortles / Keenum. Flacco gets a lot of criticism but he made a lot of big plays the season the Ravens won the SB
Report GoBallistic January 22, 2018 12:11 AM GMT
Bradford is pretty good under pressure as he showed last year behind a truly dreadful line.  Doesn't have any mobility of course but will absolutely step up and deliver the ball. And an absolute rolls royce passer in the unlikely event that he is healthy

Report Swagger January 22, 2018 12:20 AM GMT
dlarssonf - Well it's kind of weird. I only got into American Football after watching Tony Romo play for the Cowboys so it's difficult as I felt he should have been given the chance to compete for his job, at least before this season began but they wouldn't give him that opportunity as they knew he would have beaten out Prescott.

Not a fan of Dak Prescott, I think the guy is overrated and the Cowboys should have traded him end of last season - they would have got a king's ransom. He has been exposed this season imo. He has great wheels but that's about it.

To be honest, now that Romo has gone i'm not a partisan Cowboys fan.

I really enjoyed watching Carson Weintz play this season, I think he's fantastic.

I mainly hate the Patriots these days haha

Huge fan of Aaron Rodgers. Shame to see him go down this season, you must have been gutted. Great to watch regardless of who people support imo.

I personally don't really rate this Patriots team - it's not a great team imo. But the usual double act of Belichick and Brady plus decent coaching will make them very hard to beat.

I think the Eagles are fantastic value. They have a strong front seven so will get pressure on Brady. I also really rate Doug Pederson, I think he has done a fantastic job as head coach at the Eagles. It will basically come down to Nick Foles. If he plays like he has done in this first half then they have every chance. If Carson Weintz was playing I would fancy them to pull it off but I just don't know with Nick Foles. I much prefer him to Case Keenum against Brady as he has the ability to pull off a big play.

It will be closer than people think.
