Seahawks at Rams (-7)

Washington at Eagles (-9.5).

Interesting match ups. Players missing all over the place due to covid.  I haven't a clue. No bet for I.

Rams and Eagles both win and both cover the handicap.

Mind you it was hard going.

It sure was.....

And compounded by the disease of f*ckin' analytics.Cry. While not decisive in these games it was causing unnecessary problems. I was watching both games (Sky and Gamepass ) and found myself shouting at TV and laptop -  "take the f**ckin' field goal" (TV) and "punt"  (laptop). To no avail, both failed.

At what stage do coaches start watching the goddam games - this is not mathematics, its football (gridiron version).

Glad to see more and more people coming out against some of this "going for it on 4th down" brigade. Brandon Staley's performance vs Chiefs was deplorable, cost them the game.

As one analyst said "since when did 3 points become a bad thing?".  Anyway you have to take into account, "how is our OL doing against theirs?".  4th & 3 on the 35 yd line against one team may be a different proposition against another.  We have weather, we have score, we have plays available to us that we are confident about.  Each one is an individual decision not a mathematical formula.

Actually getting a bid fed-up of the stupidity of it at times. Of course, I'm not saying you don't go for it on 4th - I'm just saying you have to consider loads of factors (including data analytics).  Data Analytics being a MINOR one, not the major factor.  Its giving coaches a bit of an out.  "We were being aggressive, we were trying to win the game" etc .  Why not and make sure you don't lose the game unnecessarily?

The Rams were very lucky.

Had one of their scoring drives extended with a phantom PI call. Then, when Seahawks were driving to tie the game at the end, an absolutely blatant PI that was not called got them off the field.
