Big day today then.
First BREAKING NEWS (ish) - Chip Kelly and Trent Baalke are goners. Not sure that’ll help the 49ers tbh. Maybe Jim will come back? (he won’t)
AFC is all tied up, save for seedings and byes - still really sad that no matter what happens we won’t be seeing Derek Carr in the playoffs, really enjoyed watching the Raiders this year. Hopefully they beat the Broncos today just because. Would really like to see the Pats miss out on a first-round bye, will see if the Dolphins can cause an upset.
In the NFC, big game between the Redskins and Giants deciding on what happens to them, the Lions, AND the Packers. Bucs are also in the race for a playoff place here too. There are a shitload of permutations as to what has to happen for each team to get through which I will not be regurgitating here as to be honest I don’t care very much. Would be fun to see the Lions get through at least.
In terms of individual games - Cowboys @ Eagles could be good, despite neither team needing to win, I suspect Dallas still will. Raiders @ Broncos will be interesting to see how McGloin fares. Saints @ Falcons should be high-scoring. Giants @ Redskins followed by Packers @ Lions really are the big two though today.
Elsewhere, the Jets might actually beat a Ryan-less Bills team, overturning the curse that started this time last year, spurring them on to an 11-5 season next year. Probably won’t happen though.
Also we may be seeing our last ever games from Larry Fitz and Steve Smith today
