Thanks, Nick Folk! Not one person in the world wanted that game to go to OT.

Or wanted the Jets to win that game. The Patriots were basically sleepwalking through 3 quarters. Thankfully, they woke up in the 4th & got the job done because I would of been absolutely infuriated if they would of lost to the Jets.

LOL Jets.

Snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. 😂

That should also be the motto for the Lions & those wretched not worth a damn Falcons. The Jets are 7 losses away from joining those Lions & the Browns in the apex of NFL Futility. Hopefully, they won't put a scare in me in the next game & just lay down & play dead already.

Ben got hurt on Sunday and now has the ‘rona.

Only his tight end has tested positive. Ben is on the covid list because of close contact.

Ahh ok.  Poor tight end.  The alerts I got only said Ben was on the COVID list, no mention of the guy who actually has it.

My thoughts on NFL headquarters has not changed, however.

I just want to get this off my chest...Skip Bayless is an asshole.

I have never heard him have a derogatory nickname for any other quarterback except Flacco.  He calls him Fluko.  Just did it again.  For a player that really doesn't impact the sport that much, why single him out?  I know Bayless' feelings got hurt when Flacco beat his beloved Brady on the way to his Superbowl win, but Bayless is just petty.  Did Flacco sleep with his wife or something?  I also hate his dismissive grunts.  Asshole.

How do they do that?  Single out any one individual because of close contact.  The entire team is in close contact with each other.  Unless they're doing something I really don't wanna know about...

Several other players are also on the List because of close contact.   They have a formula and its what the contact tracers they all wear say.

He used to call Tony Romo "Tony Uh-Oh" and "Tony Romeo" when he was dating Jessica Simpson. There are multiple examples of Skip lying and being contrary for the sake of contrariness, so I don't take anything he says seriously. My sports life got infinitely better when I stopped watching clowns like Skip Bayless, Colin Cowherd, and others of their inflammatory opinionated nature.

I would occasionally watch First Take to see which of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless could out-asshole the other.  It was always a tie, and, really, I as the viewer lost because both of them made me want to stab myself in the face so many times.

Well done Bills fans ❤. 

They're nuts, but good-hearted. I remember they gave a bunch of money to Andy Dalton's charity after the Bengals knocked out Baltimore to get the Bills in the playoffs a few years back.

They're wearing tracers that can tell whether or not someone has been within six feet...etc.

I also heard this morning on ESPN Radio that there were four players who were in close contact, so it’s not just Ben who has to quarantine.

That is correct.  It was Vince Williams, Jaylen Samuels, and someone else in addition to Ben that was close to Vance McDonald

This is going to be the first year where I am now too old of a lady to follow along with the SB halftime act.

I imagine The Weeknd is hip with the young kids?  And I know who he is and what he looks like, but could not tell you if I have ever heard one of his songs or collaborations.

You're ahead of me - I did know The Weeknd is a person, not a band, but had no idea what he looks like or, like you, if I'd heard any of his songs.  I just looked him up, so now I know what he looks like, but when I listened to snippets of the first six videos that came up on Google, I didn't know any of the songs.

This is why I watch SNL - to keep up with the hip, young musical acts!  (That's current lingo, right?).  He's been on a few times and is quite charming.  I always enjoy The Weeknd Update. 

 

Honestly, the way I keep up with a lot of music is through SNL, Colbert, and between innings at ballgames.  Used to be able to add Letterman in there, but alas...

Does anyone know if the league is still making money off their "patriotic" military salutes?

Define "making money."    Are they still selling Salute to Service merchandise?   Oh yeah.   Is the Pentagon paying the NFL for all the in stadium events?   No.   It was stopped a few years ago when it came out how much the Pentagon was spending.   It was felt the taxpayers should not be paying for sports team to salute our military.   If leagues want to do it during November, they can but they won't be paid to do it.    One reason the League suddenly didn't mind teams not coming out for the National Anthem anymore or kneeling.   It wouldn't just the NFL's paycheck from DoD.

Great player who lived and enjoyed life to the fullest. The only thing about him that upsets me is that he beat out Jim Brown for the Heisman, but that wasn't his fault. R.I.P.

2020 has been a rough year for Packers' greats - Herb Adderley, Willie Wood, Willie Davis and now the Golden Boy.

RIP Paul Hornung.  One of the rare greats in both College and the NFL.  Similar to how we aren't getting a league MVP from a non-playoff team, or a Super Bowl MVP from a losing team, we'll never see a Heisman winner from a team with a losing record, ever again.

The real Golden Boy.  It's been a rough year, period, but I feel for the St. Louis Cardinals fans along with the Green Bay fans.

 

The Steelers result against the Bengals will not be a shock, regardless of the outcome.  I think Cincinnati is for real and might be 1-2 years & a defense away from being a major contender.  IMO, Cincy reminds me of Cleveland 2 years ago when they rallied in the second half and finished strong against expectations.  Pittsburgh might point to covid issues in an event of a loss, but the Bengals have been dealing with the coronavirus as well.  Cincy had a bye, but despite the fan turnout, it's at Heinz Field.

Week Ten Picks includes: Cleveland, Detroit, Tampa, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Buffalo, Miami, Vegas, Seattle, New Orleans, Baltimore, and Chicago.

The Eagles are getting several people back.  Despite the jokes on a 5-win NFC Team, I think Philly might run away and possibly get that number to 7-9 wins.  The problem is they are losing several people, including their entire defensive line, thanks to their assistant coach testing positive

Ok, ladies and germs, your New York Football Giants are one game out of first place in the NFC East (Iggles have that tie and a game in hand).  Take that, haters!

They still have a ton of tough games left, including the AFC North outside of the current leader,  They could go 0-6 especially if I pick them to run the table to finish 10-6 (similar to their Super Bowl years & run).  Seattle you never know, and Dallas favors the GMEN.  Anyway, it's not easy for New York, unless I pick against them.

 

Meanwhile, several people were happy to see Nick Chubb return today, but that view did a 180 around the conclusion of the Texans/Browns game.  Meh, I was okay with the ending; it happens

Unfortunately Big Blue already has seven losses so 9-7 is on the table, 10-6 is sadly not.

All day FOX was imploring me to check out America’s Game of the Week, Seattle at LA.  Seattle at LA SEATTLE AT LA.  The Giants game concludes (love you DJ!), the postgame show wraps up, and the announcer declares “welcome to Pittsburgh!”  The fuck?  In related news, Cincinnati is vomiting all over themselves and it’s making me sad.

I had to turn the Bengals game off, which is good because I got to enjoy the end of the Bills game.  Wow... 

I don't care about either team, so I can appreciate a dramatic ending.

The Steelers need to lose soon, but their schedule looks weak the next few weeks so blah.

Hate to see the Bills lose but what a catch by Hopkins and throw by Kyler Murray. You can’t defend that. Arizona seems like they made the right decision going with Kyler instead of Rosen. 
 

What is going on in Seattle.

Holey moley, the end of the Cardinals game. Great pass by Kyler Murray but Hopkins' catch in all that heat was unbelievable. It made me think of this Clifford Franklin quote from the football comedy movie, The Replacements:

https://youtu.be/ozGNfNsnX6g (NSFW)

"The football was like a one-man cold to DeAndre Hopkins. DeAndre Hopkins was the only one catching it. DeAndre Hopkins was the only one coming down with it."

Whoops!  I knew their bye was next week too, which means they completed their tenth game today.  My fault!

I really enjoyed Jonathan Vilma as the color guy.  He tried very hard to be positive towards both teams, even if Cincinnati did their very best to make it a near impossible task.

Chris Spieleman, on the other hand, sucked.  I have no idea why he has a bias towards Philadelphia, but he didn’t try in any way to hide it.

There's an offensive lineman on the Giants who has cleats customized to look like Chuck Taylor high tops. Nice.

ETA I know that Mike Tomlin got fined for not wearing a face covering. Will that same standard be applied to Belichick? He treated his gaiter like it was a necklace through the game.

I probably won't waste time getting upset if (and when) he isn't fined for it.  While the randomness of the NFL discipline is just that, I think organizations like the Steelers and unlike the Raiders will do the right thing.  In doing so, whatever New England does is their business.  It will be a bad look since I saw Belichick without one but can't recall the Steelers not wearing theirs.  They didn't but I didn't see the violation on television

Speaking of Bill, and based on what I saw online, it's been a long time, maybe close to six years since Pittsburgh was happy for the Patriots for a game.  And I think it's a first that the New England "pulled the upset against the Baltimore Ravens"

That catch by Deandre Hopkins is one of the best I've ever seen.  He had three guys surrounding him and outjumped them all to make the catch for the win. 

I never thought Buffalo Arizona in week 10 would be such a thrilling game

I’ve probably seen 75 different versions of the meme of Kyler scrambling and the caption saying “fuck, D-Hop is probably out there somewhere” and it makes me laugh every time.

Also that pic of his Jumpman gloves is very effective advertising, without spending a dime.
