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.

Just watched the game, pretty stoked with our O. Some of the throws by both QBs were A grade.

D stood up when needed, think the one thing Wade will be harping on was the missed tackles. We had quite a few today.

4-0 gotta be happy.

 

Get stuffed Fisher!

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.

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.

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.

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
