Your “And Now For The Letdown” Sunday Afternoon NFL Football Open Thread

Perhaps I spoke hastily. The Pre-Vegas/K.C. tilt could and should have a fair amount of scoring so that’s nice. But the other two? Definite stinker material. Shall we keep an eye on them because fantasy? We Shall.

TO THE GAMES!

Rams/Cards:

Goff didn’t throw a single TD pass the entire month of November so I dropped his sorry ass a while ago. Everything has to be ‘just so’ for him to excel and McVay’s O has been scrutinized and the league has adjusted. It’s your move now, Sean. Also occupying ‘derriere’ status is David Johnson-since week 7 he’s had 7 touches for 12 yards. That’s one hell of a come-down for a second round fantasy pick. I’ll be astounded if he doesn’t have off-season surgery for some condition that has been kept under wraps.

Chargers/Broncos:

Another Elway qb pick makes his first NFL start today and not much is expected of Drew Lock. At this point, if there was a qb in the draft by the name of Dumb Bigarm, you’d know that Elway would trade up to get him. This doesn’t look like a good week to play the wr’s in this game due to Lock’s accuracy issues and the fact that when Harris Jr. goes on ‘shadow’ duty, his opponent grabs about 3.5 balls per game.

Raiders/Chiefs:

This looks like a ‘First to 50’ type of contest. The Chiefs can’t defend the run and the Raiders pass defense is as close to non-existent as one can get-Mahomes went for 443/4 the last time these two danced. If you’re looking for a sneaky streamer you may want to take a gander at Zay Jones.

Testify down below.

I wasn’t watching that game until I noticed there was a chance for a Chargers comeback, so I’ll GLADLY take credit for jinxing them.

That was clear PI on the Chargers on the last play, I don’t know what everyone here is talking about

Because they never call that on Hail Maries. If they did, half the Hail Mary attempts would have PI called either way.

Rivers hasn’t been this mad about defensive interference since that time Tiffany suggested a diaphragm.

What a garbage call. Greg Louganis never dove that well.

But it’s against Spanos, so fuck ’em.

Chargers should just reach out to all the piss pig masochists in LA’s BDSM scene and try to convince them that even more misery can be theirs.

These fucking Browns….

I hate to admit this, but if it wasn’t for the Ravens offensive crazy show with Lamar (fuck I still can’t believe that kid is only in his second year), Mike Tomlin should be head coach of the year.

He has a guy cut from the cast of Duck Dynasty winning games. What is he on….his forth QB?

They ain’t doing shit against real teams but give him credit….the Jets couldn’t beat the Bungles…

I was doing a headfirst dive into bourble last night even before our guests came. So I did the smart thing, started pounding cheap beer. I almost fell into the firepit. Luckily, pizza and chili saved me. I still feel not that great.

Atletico Madrid 0 – 0 Barcelona at halftime

Fantastic Lesser Footy game going on in Madrid, it’s been equal to Bal-SF honestly. Just look at this insane cross by Joao Felix, and an equally insane save by ter Stegen: https://www.beinsports.com/us/laliga/video/ter-stegen-denies-atleti-with-wonder-save/1359383/amp
