Bye Week

Recommended Posts

I am sorry if someone was suppose to post this but I wasn't sure. Just wanted to talk about who we should be rooting for this weekend:

Steelers@ Jaguars this is actually a tough one because you want the Jags to lose to put Steelers at 9-1 but you also want the Steelers to win just in case the Jets do find a way to win then the Jags take the #1 pick
Jets@Chargers As mentioned above lets go Jets, as I do not want them to have the opportunity to land Lawrence
Dolphins@Broncos Broncos would be a nice upset but Lock is day to day and may not play, with them winning it would put the Dolphins an extra game behind the Bills
Patrios@Texans ideally we want the Texans to win as the Patriots losing is always fun to watch plus it allows the Texans to drop in the draft in which the dolphins own their 1st round pick
Titans@Ravens, while they both are 6-3 ideally the Ravens winning could be best for us as the titans have the tie against us if it ever came down to that decision
Chiefs@Raiders, similar to the Titan Ravens Raiders winning this game would be in our best interest as it would put us only a game behind for the #2 seed
 

This to me is the perfect time for a bye as it will allow more players to rest up and get healthy as John Brown, Cody Ford, Dane Jackson, Mitch Morse, Matt Milano are still not 100% and then you have the players on  COVID list that could be able to come off.

Is Milano IR until the SF game minimum or could he play after break vs Chargers ?

He can't return until the 49ers game. If you place a player on IR they must miss a minimum of 3 games not weeks.

Great write up and I agree with everything and who we should be cheering for, though I don’t see us catching KC or Pitt regardless of this weekends outcome unfortunately.

IMO we are playing for 3rd which is great because it slightly increases the chance of a second home playoff game. Albeit not great odds.

Mostly importantly, we are getting healthy and look ready to roll in the final 6 games.

I am not sure cause the Steelers have the ravens, colts, bills, and browns who all have winning records so them losing this weekend may not be significant now but if they lose again and then play the bills with 2 losses could mean more then them still undefeated. Watching a couple of their games some are not impressive particularly a Cowboys game with a psqaud qb almost beating them. Anything is possible as for KC as they still have the Bucs, Saints, Vegas, and Dolphins remaining. Bills have to focus on themselves but these teams do not have a cake walk to #1 and #2 seed.

I think the Ravens are trending in the wrong direction and with that game being in Pittsburgh (I know it doesn’t mean much this year) I don’t see them losing. I also can’t see Indy scoring enough to win against the Steelers.

It will be very interesting to see how the race tightens over the next few weeks.

I'm not really buying the Steelers totally yet. I feel they won games they had no business winning and could very well finish 13-3 making that Steelers game coming up huge for us for the breaking purposes

I definitely think they’re beatable. I just don’t think we’ll win out and that means they’d have to lose 4 of their last 7 to finished tied with us assuming we can go at least 5-1. It’s a tall task.

Sunday’s are just different on bye week. There are some good games to watch today which is nice but I get so bored when we’re not playing.

Boring bye week

Baltimore beating Tennessee works for us. Tennessee has potential tie breaker on us.

Ravens looking real bad right now. I really want the 3rd seed but no wildcard teams scare me right now.

Tua benched? Can’t wait to see the media continue talking about them as a serious division contender

Well, that went about as well as it could have gone. The Dolphins aren't as good as their record indicates. Good to see them competing for a playoff spot, but man- they've won a lot of games via a crazy special teams play

Disappointed to see titans get the win but the colts still manage to pull one out of GB. Was hoping they both lost while the bills sit steady at #3 seed. Was also hoping for Raiders to pull one out but that was a crazy ending.

As for dolphins it shows Flores is a bit over his head with the managing of an entire team. He has definitely brought a solid defense to the table but he made an unthinkable move to bench Fitzpatrick after coming off back to back games for Tua to say they want the future to start now and then when things get tough you bench him to put Fitz back in. Not sure how you think you are going to have a qb grow if they arent put in to the scenarios such as that one. I am not impressed with Tua at all and I think the Dolphins made the wrong move by drafting him over Herbert. Tua reminds me of a younger version of Tyrod Taylor he will be a good short range passer and able to run but he just cant get it done when they are down. At best he would be a clock managing qb, I know it is early but Herbert and Burrow have had a really solid rookie season so far.

I am a bit concerned for the Chargers as they can be a sneaky team this week as their offense is ranked 3rd in total offense so far this year. I also came away with Broncos not being that impressive either, while the defense made a few plays fitz coming in with 10 min remaining in the game he was able to rip up some yardage on them fairly quick. I think the remaining schedule of toughness will be 1. Steelers 2. Chargers (because of their offense) 3. Pats 4. Dolphins 5. San fran (without Jimmy G and Kittle) 6. Broncos I am hoping for a 4-2 record but could see it 5-1 or 3-3 putting the bills around 10-6 to 12-4 hopefully that will be enough for 3rd spot as Titans have to play colts, GB, and Browns (all winning records) as well as 2 more divisional games with texans and Jags. Colts have titans, steelers, and Raiders left with 2 games vs texans and jags.
