Also Joe 90 is back - the Cardinals sign Blankenship as cover for Matt Prater, and he sticks a 50yd FG right through the middle!

Wow... Saints imploding just before half-time... Two Pick 6 interceptions on consecutive drives!

Christian McCaffrey traded to SF49ers... not a great time to be a Carolina fan imho!
Report GoBallistic October 23, 2022 6:43 PM BST
The right move though

Has Brady been any better than Russell Wilson this season?
Report NonVintage October 23, 2022 8:07 PM BST
Barely tober... He has (slightly) better weapons, but for me the stats suggest Tampa are bang average, albeit they are probably in the weakest division overall. If any of the teams there picks up a bit, any of them could win it...

Washington putting it to Green Bay is a bit of a turn up, however meh the Packers have been recently!

Awful colour clash in this 49ers-Chiefs game

Does Brandon Staley know you can kick field goals and punt etc?  I think he's a complete tool of a coach - pity for Chargers, loaded with talent

LV defense are genuinely weak as hell. Being ripped open by the toothless Texans!

And agreed tobermory - it's like a soccer game where they let two teams with stripes play in their first kits...

What an awful throw by Jimmy G

Jimmy G - what the hell? THAT'S why critics give him a hard time... just take the sack and the 3pts...

In the super bowl vs the Chiefs, the 49ers wore white/gold, so no red.

Report NonVintage October 23, 2022 10:57 PM BST
Yeah, there's far too much red on that pitch!

Josh Jacobs is lightning at the moment.

Wallflower is right about these modern nerd coaches....

Miami, 16-10 up, early 2nd half; have a simple field goal to go 2 scores up, but nerd coach 'goes for it' and fails. They won the game but never came close to scoring again.

I think the analytics for this is flawed because most of the teams going for it on 4th and 2 are the teams most capable of getting it,
and so the overall success % makes it seem more viable than it is for average/poor teams.

Early days but the Patriots looking kinda flat here, offense AND defense...

Yeah, it was basically balanced, but - as suggested here - going up an all-but-guaranteed two scores in a tightish game was clearly the better call.

Wonder how much the algorithm takes into account game score/situation rather than just % likelihood of achieving the TD given the yardage & field position?

Breece Hall out for the season with ACL and meniscus - will be a battle to be fit for the start of the 2023/24 season. Imagine the Jets will now look to trade for someone to share the workload with Michael Carter if they have the cap space... maybe Cam Akers on a one-year contract?
Report NonVintage October 25, 2022 2:14 AM BST
And the non-QB issue at Foxborough now could be an actual QB issue - Mac Jones benched after a few weakish drives and an INT, and then Bailey Zappe throws a TD on his first drive...
Report NonVintage October 25, 2022 1:59 PM BST
(Jets have traded for James Robinson, RB, from the Jaguars)

real shame about Breece Hall Cry
