Your “Round, Round We Go” Sunday Afternoon NFL Football Open Thread

Have you ever googled yourself and discovered that you share the same name with a second-tier Canadian entertainer that has a huge on-line presence? Me neither. Why would anyone bother to do that? That’s just silly. I hope that the smarter among you have had the bestest post-Thanksgiving treat that has ever existed. What’s that? The beyond delicious, mayo-heavy turkey sandwich with a glass of milk. (sponsored by Joe Flacco’s Elite Treats) Man, that’s good eating. Anywhoo… TO THE GAMES!

NO/LAR: I think today’s table begins and ends here. So very interested to see how this one plays out. The Saints almost stumbled vs. the Dacteds last week but got it done in OT. The Rams ran into a Vikes team hitting on all cylinders right now and caught the L, 7-24. How they bounce back-if they do-will be very telling because division-wise they’ve got the Seahawks just one game behind them.

Sea/SF: Well, speak of the devil(birds)! Those fantasy fellers that stuck with te Graham through those first four scoreless games of the season have been rewarded with 7 TD’s in the last six games. Seattle’s secondary has been shot through with injuries of all kinds but I can’t see qb Beathard doing much about it. That’s not necessarily a knock on him because he’s working with the likes of Robinson, Taylor, Goodwin and Kittle in the passing game. “Who?”, you ask. “Exactly!”, I respond.

Den/Oak: This could have been a barn-burner with huge implications for the AFC West but it’s not the beginning of September anymore, is it? Now both teams are sorta playing out the string and Denver is looking to see what they have in Paxton Lynch. That they had to dumb down the offense for him doesn’t speak very highly of his future prospects. But he’s Head Horsey’s guy so he’s got that going for him.

Jax/Ari: Is this the week that the Jags are good? It’s so hard to keep up…

Fiddle-dee-dee down below.

Honest question as i missed the start but was the American anthem even played? Or is that image a joke?

Shania Twain of course gets dragged to the stage by a team of sled dogs…

The guy who’s delivering footballs to and from the sidelines here at the Grey Cup is somehow wearing shorts in all this snow, which means he is A) a eunuch, or B) actively trying to become one.

The Canadian, employed version of Tawny?
He drove up from Smith’s Falls.

The Grey Cup in the snow and Shania Twain playing the half-time show!? It’s like I’ve won the Canadian lottery and have more loonies than I’ll ever now what to do with!

Which for the record would be one looney.

I wanted to share this lady’s hat with you, because I think it’s awesome. Big time Blue Bombers fan here.

The ticker displays scrolling text. Maybe we should start selling a [DFO] hat with the same function?

He’s almost right side up! The upside-down is losing strength!

Ant-Man was a good movie. Not great but good popcorn flick.

That’s when you know Marvel Studios is great. Even their okay movies are pretty good.

Tiebreakers are weird. If Minny wins out, and the Eagles lose once to Oakland, Eagles stay the top seed. If the Eagles lose any game besides that along the way, Minny gets top seed.

Did Jacksonville forget which endzone they were supposed to run the ball into?

The kicker’s face going from “Yes, I’m awesome.” to “Oh, shit, get back, get back, get back!” was good.

One more team loses pace. Fucking Vikings need to slow down.

My only hope is either a complete blowout that gets Pittsburgh over confident or the #METOO movement finally catches up to Roethlisberger.

So, has RAMMIT started to wash the Jeff Fisher stench off, or is this all a glitch in the Matrix?

Note that the Saints kept it close and, were it not for bad penalties, could have won.

Let’s not start sucking their dicks quite yet.

I’m thinking embarrassing playoff exit.
