    CBS has the Saints at Rams game, I don't completely understand why. Despite the 8-2 vs 7-3 matchup, here in Utah we're treated to what amounts to an exhibition game with the effing Broncos.

    I'm watching a German feed of the Rams v Saints on Modbro on my Fire Stick.

    Good start for Williams in the Packers/Steelers game

    54 yr screen pass for a TD

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    That was fun to see even if it was against my team.

    Incredible finish. Jamaal ties it up with another TD, but Pittsburgh wins it on a last second 53 yard field goal.

    It was a great game - even though my team lost

    I don't think we will see Rogers again this year

    Yeah, I sure am glad I get to watch the Broncos and the Dolphins play tummy sticks today. This should be exciting. But I guess that’s for the fan to decide.

    Taysom made a name for himself today. Watching the reactions from his teammates and coaches was fun. He’s clearly well respected. Fun to see.

    Yes, Utah did get treated to watching the only team in the NFL that could possibly lose to the Browns play another one of the worst teams in the NFL. While Denver has more fans than any other NFL team in Utah, I would venture to say there are far more casual football fans and fans of other NFL teams that simply want to watch the best game available. I don't know what's going on with the networks and how they're divvying up the games, but Fox had the Denver game yesterday, an all AFC game. So the local Fox affiliate chose (or was forced to choose) that steaming pile of shit over Minnesota at Atlanta.

    Gronk suspended for a game. That was to be expected. It was an outrageous hit.

    I would like to see suspensions that are conditional on the other playing return to play on a cheap shot like that.

    Such a bizarre move by Gronk. Even his little tap dance before the hit is strange. One might argue that Gronk is the one with a brain injury.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Probably from an STD.

    I think I understand why coaches complain about flags now. He certainly sees things differently than most people.

    This Steelers team is crazy lucky. Tomlin is a very average coach with very below average clock management skills.

    Agree on the poor time management at the end there, but it's hard to argue with success. Luck? Key plays were made by some very good players. I'd say they had quite a few calls go against them that could have gone the other way. Not very lucky tonight.

    I hate seeing a player like Wentz go down. The NFL needs more young great QBs. That said, the huge crowd at Memorial Colosseum for an NFL game was cool to see.

    One narrative this week was the Packers being able to control their own destiny when Rodgers comes back this week. Carolina and Atlanta winning throws a serious monkey wrench in those plans. Atlanta holds the tiebreaker and there's also the potential for a four way tie for the last NFC playoff spot. With Wentz gone and Keenum at QB for Minny, the NFC is ripe for a darkhorse to win the conference. It seems like a good time for New Orleans, Seattle or Green Bay to fill that void (though Green Bay needs help getting in).

    Though a win today would have been nice in Carolina, it sure makes for a great end to the season. I hate it when the last two weeks of the regular season feature few starters and boring football. There will be some great games this year.

    Shouldn't have been that close, but GB beat the Browns and Williams added 2 more TDs. His average YDS/carry leave a little bit to be desired though. He reminds me a little bit of Brandon Jackson of the 2010 Packers

    You mean his ypc... with Brett Huntley as the starting QB? Please.

    Let's see what he does when there is a QB back there that is a serious threat. Then he's really going to do some damage.
