Can't get over Goff... 17 less attempts than his oppo QB, and still got 43 more yards...

That was a cracker of a game. Probably the biggest of the season so far.

Yeah,  top class game between 2 very good teams Dappa.  You've got to wonder how the Vikings could possibly lose that badly at home to the Bills?

Costly loss as next up for Minnesota is at the Eagles.  And if one of the NFC North teams can get on a roll then the Vikings could easily be playing catch-up for the season. Mind you,  I don't believe that the Packers,  Lions or the Bears are all that great.  But you never know. 

As for the Rams,  who's gonna stop 'em?  Their defense gave up points but their offense is supreme with Goff at the helm.   And the Vikes were always likely to score with their good offense.

That's exactly where we're at. A notch or two ahead of all 31 other teams...

An ex-player on Sportscenter was saying that their defense has a few weaknesses - more so in the secondary but that might be injury related.

But all the teams get injuries so it is not a singular reason - unless that injury is to a gun QB where the back-up is way below ordinary.

The Rams will now be the hunted though so they will get dissected by all ... but having a wise-head like Wade Phillips to support their young coach is an excellent situation for them.

They are the team to beat in the NFC,  that much is true

Yeah that's probably the only obvious area. Maybe their OL? they certainly dominated tonight though.

think the one thing Wade will be harping on was the missed tackles. We had quite a few today.

That was the only thing execution wise I could find. The Thielen TD where just just pushed through...

You can surely put that down to injury though.

Gee Goff was absolutely superb. Two to Kupp and the Woods one were just great.

A day off and I still can’t watch a game of football! :(

I did just watch the extended highlights though. HUGE win for the Rams. I haven’t liked a divisional rival this much for a long time! 

Jared Goff, you can really see why he was renowned as a great deep ball guy at Cal. Amazing.

My tips are Philadelphia,  Seattle,  Chiefs

Paging @Dr. Gonzo  @titan_uranus  @DeeSpencer 

Remembering we're looking for road winners only ... the games are listed in an above post.  Good luck!

From here on in every odd numbered week carries bonus points - week 5 carries 2 points for instance.  We get another classic match-up with SNF this week and the MNF game is a good match-up too.

Yeah they've all got to be road teams Gonzo and the Vikes & KC are at home. 

If you don't get this message in time I wouldn't be too concerned ... we're all still sitting on zero points and tomorrow's games are tough.

Haha sorry mate just saw this now! Is it 3 road teams every week? If so this week I'll take

Saints, Chiefs, Ravens

Finally. Some points.

Not quite Dappa

Unless you've inked in the KC win ... are we all Denver fans all of a sudden!

And what were the Colts thinking?  Crazy!

Ah yes, sorry...

Colts? I didn't see? Something about a 4th down?

With the scores tied and with less than a minute to go in overtime the Colts elected to make a play on a 4 and 4 on their own 43 yard line.  The play was broken down,  Houston then got the ball back on downs and a play later scored a field goal.

They should have punted and been happy to take the tie.  But maybe their thinking was that it's wins or nothing with 2 of their division rivals now sitting at 3 & 1.

Ah I see. I was thinking maybe it was end of regulation, in which case dumb...

But yeah. Bit of the Dougie coaching tree in there...

If it was later in the season you'd maybe understand the call but a half a win can act as a win with the tiebreak rule.   They possibly don't see the Texans as a threat so a case could be made. 

I would have taken the tie though .. they are now 1 & 3 and staring down the barrel in that division.  Reckon it's the Jags division to lose the way they're playing.

Agree.

After Eagles gave up their 3rd fourth down in overtime for stupidity, I was praying for a tie. So yeah, there are situations.

OMG, just watched the Titans v Eagles game, can't believe we got up, especially after quite possibly the most boring game I've ever seen last week against the Jags. Titan Up!

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
