The gmen thrashing vs Philly, semi shows how weak this Vikings team really was. And next year, Vikings play a 1st place schedule

Not really. It just shows how bad the Vikings’ defense was, and that the Eagles were the better team while going up against a familiar opponent for the 3rd time.

This Vikings team won 13 games despite a bottom 3 defense. There’s a lot of positivity to take away from that. The offense should only grow and continue to get better, and the defense only has one way to go. The defense doesn’t have to have some drastic turn around. Just getting a defense in the top 20 is going to keep the Vikings near the top. 

And the idea of a 1st place schedule being some hurdle to overcome versus a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th place schedule is just some stupid talking point that media heads use to fill air time.

So you think playing at Philly instead of at Washington (next year) is equal win probability?

This year’s Eagles have accomplished a feat not seen since the great 1985 Bears.

After sacking Daniel Jones five times in Saturday night’s win over the Giants, the 2022 Eagles now have 75 sacks in their 18 combined regular season and postseason games. That’s the third-most in NFL history.

The most ever was the 82 sacks recorded in 18 games by the 1984 Bears, and the second-most was the 80 sacks in 19 games by the 1985 Bears.

Reid informed Mahomes that he wasn’t going back into the game without X-rays that were negative. Mahomes angrily threw off his parka and departed for the locker room.

“It was hard getting him out of the game, first of all,” Reid said. “He wanted to fight, and so we got him out, went to the X-ray, got an X-ray, looked at, taped. He came back, and he said he felt good enough to be protected, where he’s not going to get hurt. That’s obviously the primary thing.”

X-rays were negative, though Mahomes will undergo an MRI to confirm the injury isn’t nearly as bad as it looked.

 Regardless of the outcome of the NFL divisional playoff game, the Cincinnati Bengals can claim a different sort of title; namely having the most foul-mouthed fans.

This is according to a nationwide survey of fans by the site British Gambler. Bengals fans ranked No. 1 for that spot, as well as No. 8 in terms of fans who swear the most during games. Close behind are fans of the Buffalo Bills, the team the Bengals play on Sunday in a rematch of their aborted game earlier this month.

Bengals fans said the thing that makes them swear most is bad calls by the referees. A close second was fumbles or interceptions.

Philly looked pretty dang good last night.  I'm not sure SF or Dallas can hang with them in the NFCCG.  I also don't know which AFC team left has the defense to stop the Eagles.  Could the pre-season prognostications giving the SB to Philadelphia actually been right?  If it isn't the Eagles hoisting the Lombardi in February, the team that beats them will do so from the position of underdog.

what's with Buffalo today? all i know is the score.

Execution and preparation. Cincinnati looks like they are prepared for their opponent, and they are executing. Buffalo looks like they are trying hard to not make a mistake, and it’s leading to poor execution. 

Buffalo is so dependent, or at least used to hitting big plays down field. They aren’t used to needing to string long drives together. The snow appears to be effecting their ability to hit those big plays. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is executing the short and intermediate game, and utilizing YAC to perfection. 

Also, the run game. Cincinnati is doing a great job complimenting their passing game with a solid run game performance. Buffalo is one dimensional.
