@Dappa Dan  and others ...

Walk me through the picking of Eagles v Houston. Texans have impressed me immensely. Eagles have put together exactly one game in a row of good footy.

Is it because they knocked off the mighty Rams?

Ha ha! 

Just a gut feel Dappa ... Foles and all that.  Home field,  trap game for the Texans.  Everything on the line for Philadelphia. 

And in this unpredictable season,  most of the games are more line-ball than we've realised.  The Vegas lines have often been way off-beam.  More so than I can ever remember.  We've seen a lot of upset wins so we could expect more of the same.

Didn't Foles take over at the exact same time last season?  And then ...

Just the 1 point on offer this week but what a vital point it could turn out to be!  A reminder that week 17 carries 3 points.  The Rams look like certainties but finding 2 more looks tricky.  A number of divisional games and they're often close. 

Anyway,  good luck all.

Been super surprised & impressed by the Chargers, Texans, Bears & even the Colts (guess a healthy Luck helps)

Who are people’s picks for the MVP at this stage ? I personally can’t go pass Mahomes. You’d think by seasons end he’ll just about have 50 TD & 5,000 yards absolutely extraordinary for a kid in his first year starting. Only 2 players in NFL history have thrown 50+ TD’s in a season 

Rams

Bears

Broncos

I’m biased so I’m saying AD99

double teamed pretty much 70% of plays and still has had nearly the best defensive record of all time.

I reckon Mahomes for MVP ... he's played great and he's also had a huge impact.  Donald,  Brees & Rivers have all been fantastic as well but the kid gets into the picture. 

Meanwhile,  the Pro-Bowl selections are out ... Chargers lead the way with 7 selections whilst the Chiefs & Steelers 6 each.  Read more here -  2019 Pro Bowl selections for every team: Full NFC,  AFC rosters

@Macca @Gorgoroth @layzie  and others...

Who's making playoffs from here? I had Eagles written off. Probably still do, but their season comes down to next week. Beat Texans and they are more likely to make playoffs than not.

I have it in order of seeds as...

AFC: 

1 - Chiefs

2 - Texans

3 - Patriots

4 - Steelers

5 - Chargers

6 - Colts

I'm pretty sure there's no other possibility here other than the Titans pinching the Colt's spot if they win in week 17. Super impressed with the old Eagle Frank Reich and the spectacular drive to playoffs. Not sure what they'll do once there, but loved the run. And Chargers are unlucky to be in a division with KC.

NFC:

1 - Saints

2 - Rams

3 - Bears

4 - Cowboys

5 - Seahawks

6 - Vikings

There's a lot of permutations here. I have Eagles losing to Texans, and Vikings beating Detroit. That would just about wrap it up I think. If those results go other ways, Eagles sneak in. But on form, you'd think Eagles miss.

Fun end to the season!

 

Mine wouldn’t be too much different to be honest. Not 100% on KC getting the 1 with that tricky trip to Seattle but I think they have enough, I also have the Colts sneaking in.

I think the Eagles will give the Texans a good run and can't trust the Vikes winning out so the 6 seed is up in the air for me. Great few weeks coming up!

Yeah Mahomes for me, and well deserved. Gee what a golden age we're in.

My question mark with Mahomes is it’s now a QB league made for passing, passing and more passing.

But then again I never expect to see anyone other than a QB win it.

I read something a while back about the fact Donald should win it. Or, if I remember correctly, if he doesn’t then a DT never will. Something along those lines.

I’d love to see that tbh.

Have had this conversation elsewhere. Donald gets double or triple teamed on every play and still leads the sack numbers. QBs get protected by officials more than ever. Donald is the real MVP as far as I am concerned.

Titans victory today now means that the Ravens need to win today otherwise they'll need help in week 17.   Big ask at the Chargers but they can do it.

Come on Ravens, get my tips off and running please. 

Got to give some love to the kickers. The Ravens’ Justin Tucker needs 2 more FGs to reach 30 for the season, will become the first player in NFL history with 6 seasons of 30+ FGs.

Prediction : His second field goal of the night will be the game winner as the clock runs out.??

The Ravens looked good and played well ... defense travels hey!

We might be having one of those seasons where any of the playoff teams can advance a long way in the playoffs.  Nothing should surprise as we keep seeing games being decided by picks,  turnovers,  fumbles and errors. 

Chargers put in an average one but they've been up for the contest for what seems like an age.  They'll bounce back you'd reckon.

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
