just 6 games in early window...much more enjoyable
Agreed wonder. I've kind of trained myself to cope, but when the Octobox is full it's kind of sensory overload!

Tampa wiping the floor with Cinci is probably the biggest surprise of the week so far for me!
Normality sliding back into play for Tampa... Bengals lead heading into the last quarter having been 17 points down! Given all their other issues, the Buccs just can't afford to turn the ball over repeatedly.

Funny stuff in Tampa. They were blowing out the Bengals, they went for a fake punt to the surprise of many (including the guy who was supposed to take the snap) and that game has turned after two Brady turnoversIt's funny in the NFL how you need to be a good coordinator to get a head coach job even though it's a completely different job. Todd Bowles seems to be bad at this job
Yeah, he seems to be slightly bemused by how things work when it comes to game management. I know that Tampa are a talent-limited outfit, but the O-line is generally solid. Surely you just start running it more using your two reasonable running backs, and go for short quick passes.
Obviously nothing works if you literally can't hold onto the ball Lenny!

Surprised that Raiders TD held up thru the booth review.This must be the best regular-season week of all time in the NFL
For some reason there didn't seem to be any better footage/angle.
What we saw looked close but probably just touching out of bounds, but it wasn't in line at all so it could have been deceptive like the Japan goal a couple of weeks ago. The doubt meant they had to stick to the on-field decision.
And haha, yes, wtf was Jacoby Meyers doing? I think he got caught up in the moment but obviously they could validly have just taken a knee or given themselves up to take it to overtime, so that throw towards Mac should never have happened!
