Allen missed a few easy throws late to go for it all.

Outside of the Bills avoiding the Chiefs in the playoffs, they need to change things up. I know the missing linebackers would have hurt but Kansas secondary was banged up too.

Wide right, the most dreaded words in Bills history. That was probably the best chance Buffalo will ever have beating Kansas in the playoffs. Allen was a bit wayward and as much as he makes good plays with his feet I do think he puts himself in harm's way quite often. Was also very fortunate on that fumble they recovered. Ravens and Chiefs AFC Chamlionshop game should be interesting.

On the NFC side Dan Campbell does it again. So much credit goes to the Detroit Lions. They go on to meet the Niners in the conference title game and I've got no doubt anyone that isn't a Niners fan will be pulling for Detroit. It's a shame because I would be too. Should be a great game too and hopefully it doesn't rain.

Detroit need to bring their best run defence and they are one of the best. McCaffrey can ruin the game. The Detroit oline has been great but the niners rush and pressure is next level. 
 

Ravens should beat Chiefs and beat them, whilst not comfortably I think they will control the game from start to end.

One thing we know about the lions, they won’t die wondering. It’ll be aggressive play calling all the way. I expect it’ll either be close and a tight win for either or a blowout win for the 49ers.

its Jackson v Mahomes in Baltimore. As good as Jackson has been If it comes down to a back and forth between those 2 I back mahomes.

going to be 2 great games. Looking forward to them.

49ers should win, by rights, but if luck plays a decent part, the Lions can win.  As you mentioned, if the Lions aggressive play calling works, Detroit are a real show

And if the best version of KC turns up, they can beat the Ravens.  Then there's the Taylor Swift factor (whatever that is)

For me of the Lions can stop the run as well as they have and Deebo not 100% it means they have a chance to keep the score down. 
The Oline for the lions could be the biggest factor. Give Goff a clean pocket and he can hurt them.

The Mahomes factor will be big but with their secondary banged up a bit and the run game of Ravens being very good I can’t see how they get enough stops on D, Ravens will end up with a bigger time possession by games end but as said. Mahomes can Mahomes.

Ravens 11points

Detroit 3 points (I do think the filthy niners will win, but I want the Lions to win 😄)

The story is amazing and there is a part of me that wishes I was in everyone elses shoes pulling hard for Detroit. 

At least if we lose it will be to a good story and not a hated rival, whether I feel this way on the day if it happens is another story.

If there is even 1ml of rain the Lions will win. 😜

Our defense has not been firing on all cylanders lately either. Can't get enough pressure on the QB and to be the broken record, Ferrell's absence is sorely missed when defending the outside run. Chase Young can't do it and Detroit are very effective when running the football. It also doesn't get mentioned enough how average our secondary can be at times. After Ward the dropoff at corner is cliff like, Lenoire is great physically but a hothead and Thomas is a walking PI to the point where at 3rd and long you just piff it up in his direction.

The holes are there to be exploited and the Lions could easily make a match of this.

All things being equal the 49ers should win by 2 scores.  But this is the NFL where odd things often happen!

So keep your fingers crossed, layz

Ravens 7-12. reckon their D will make more stops than the chiefs. But Mahomes is a genius, so you never know.

Niners 1-6. It'll be close but 49ers to just get over the line.

With only 2 head coaching jobs yet to be filled (Washington & Seattle) it seems that Bill Belichick may end up getting squeezed out

Falcons hiring Raheem Morris Rams DC @Gorgoroth... Staggering considering he was the interim coach at the Falcons in 2020 for a half a season & let him walk. 

It’s funny I have a love/hate relationship with Him. His bend but not break mentality when we had a great D frustrated me, this year with a D full of rookies and no bodies he got the best of them. 
I wish him luck, now we have to find more coaches to go under McVay.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
