  1. There are only 4 weeks left in the season and so far beyond a handful of teams a season to forget. Usually by the time the playoffs roll around the you can tell who's a lock to make the playoffs. But in the AFC so far 8 teams are in the hunt, even the 4-8 Jets have a chance at the wild card (a very distant chance but yuck!) Even in the NFC even the Redskins have some hope somehow. But I'm guessing after this week a lot of teams will be eliminated from contention. I see a handful of games that should be good. Baltimore at Buffalo, San Francisco at New Orleans and Kansas City at New England. And for lulz the return of Eli Manning on Monday night! Woo!
  2. I figured with games starting on Saturday (Florida vs Miami), now would be as good a time as ever to start up the ol' college thread.
  3. The tight race at the top of the leaderboard shifts again as Biggie pulls ahead of the crowd! Not a lot of correct calls on our Thanksgiving Touchdown makers made Week 13's bet on the Feature Game a crucial one and with our deposed leader dropping the ball, Biggie was quick to snap up that top spot! As a side note, the number of people who called McCaffery as the week's rushing leader is disappointing. You should all be ashamed. *wags finger* :P ########## WEEK 13 RESULTS ########## Feature Game: Chicago Bears (-3.5) at Detroit Lions In a close contest, Chicago barely edges out the Lions by a score of 20.5(24-3.5)-20. Bets on the Bears win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Bears TD, Bears FG, Bears safety, Lions TD, Lions FG, Lions safety, or other? ($2,000 for the correct call) Trubisky hit Robinson from 10 yards out for the first score of the Feature Game. 2) Who will score the first touchdown in the Feature Game? ($2,000 for the correct player) Allen Robinson. Did you even read the Question 1 answer? 3) Who will score the first touchdown in the Buffalo @ Dallas game? ($2,000 for the correct player) Jason Witten pulled in a short pass from Prescott for the first touchdown in a losing effort to the Bills. 4) Who will score the first touchdown in the New Orleans @ Atlanta game? ($2,000 for the correct player) Brees shovels a short one to Taysom Hill for the first TD of this one. 5) Call the winners: Tennessee at Indianapolis Tampa Bay at Jacksonville Cleveland at Pittsburgh ($1,500 for EACH correct named game winner, $3,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Dodger was the only player to earn the bonus, calling all 3 games correctly. 6) Who will score the first touchdown in the Washington @ Carolina game? ($2,000 for the correct team player) Another passing TD, Samuel gets a 4 yard grab for a score early in the game as the Panthers get off to a quick start before the Redskins came roaring back. 7) Who will score the first touchdown in the L.A. Rams @ Arizona game? ($2,000 for the correct player) Higbee. That's a fun name to say. Higbee. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week thirteen. ($6,000 for each player named correctly, $12,000 bonus if both names are called) Derrick Henry rumbled for 149 yards on the ground and Rob Woods hauled in a ridiculous 172 through the air to lead offensive players in Week 13. Nobody called either player. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @Biggie - $48,650 @thewhyteboar - $46,150 @AbsolutSurgen - $44,100 @Keyser_Soze - $43,700 Slug - $38,700 @Jose - $37,700 @Dodger - $24,600 @BasemntDweller2 - $18,000 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Greatoneshere - $2,100 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving all. This week we are blessed with not many(?) great games. Which cowboys will show up to play the Bills, that game on paper seems the most intriguing Thanksgiving day game. 49ers vs Ravens needed to be flexed. We get a Browns vs Steelers rematch, it seems like just last week people were slamming helmets into each other. Oh wait, that was 2 weeks ago! Time to see the Texans get shut down by the Patriots. Monday night could be exciting. Woo! 🦃
  5. With a conservative bet on the Feature Game and doing very well in the Questions, thewhyteboar hangs on to his slim lead going into the Thanksgiving holiday week! While the leaderboard seems to have stabilized in Week 12, a big jump brings one player back into contention going down the stretch (I see you, Jose)! On to Week 13! ########## WEEK 12 RESULTS ########## Feature Game - Baltimore Ravens (-3.5) at LA Rams The Ravens absolutely steamrolled the hapless Rams by a score of 41.5(45-3.5)-6. Bets on Bal'mr win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Ravens TD, Ravens FG, Ravens safety, Rams TD, Rams FG, Rams safety, or other? ($1,800 for the correct call) A 6 yard connection from Jackson to Brown in the 1st quarter kicked off the scoring in this one (Ravens TD). 2) How many total combined touchdowns will be scored in the Feature Game? ($1,800 for the correct call) Six touchdowns were scored in the Feature Game, all by the Ravens. 3) Which game in Week 12 will have the highest combined score? ($1,600 for the correct game) Two games, Dolphins @ Browns and Panthers @ Saints, tie for the top combined score in Week 12 with 65 points scored in each. A call for either of these games gets the cash. Slug and thewhyteboar were the only players to guess one of these games. 4) Which QB in Week 12 will have the highest number of pass attempts? ($2,000 for the right guess) 'ol Nicky Foles had the most passing attempts for the week, chucking 48 in a losing effort for the Jags. Nobody called Foles. 5) Call the winners: Seattle at Philadelphia Denver at Buffalo Green Bay at San Francisco ($1,500 for EACH correct named game winner, $3,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) There wasn't a lot of faith from our players this week in San Francisco, but BasemntDweller2, Jose, and thewhyteboar each called all 3 games correct to earn the bonus! 6) Taking into account TOTAL DISTANCE covered on the field, name the team that will have the single longest play of Week 12. ($1,800 for the right team) The longest play in Week 12 goes to the Redskins and Steven Sims, who covered 114 yards of total distance on his way to a 91 yard kick-off return for a touchdown in Washington's 2nd win of the season. Slug was the only player to guess the Redskins because of course he did. 7) Name any RB that will average 5 or more yards per carry with at least 10 attempts. ($2,000 for any correct player) Nick Chubb, Derrick Henry, Devin Singletary, Bo Scarbrough, Mark Ingram, Rashaad Penny, and Miles Sanders each average 5 yards or greater per rush, with at least 10 attempts this week. Keyser_Soze was the only player to call one of these names right, betting on Chubb to keep up his production. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week twelve. ($5,000 for each player named correctly, $10,000 bonus if both names are called) Derrick Henry rushed for 159 yards to lead all runners and Chris Godwin pulled in 184 receiving yards to top the receivers in Week 12. Nobody called either player. I can't read, apparently! Jose called Godwin! This is why you check my math, people. :P ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @thewhyteboar - $46,650 @Biggie - $41,650 @Keyser_Soze - $37,600 @AbsolutSurgen - $35,100 @Jose - $22,700 Slug - $21,600 @Dodger - $19,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @BasemntDweller2 - $7,500 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Greatoneshere - $2,100 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  6. We have made it to week 12 and it looks like there are some good games this week. Thursday night game is actually a game that matters between two winning teams. The winner likely goes on to win the division and Colts have already beat the Texans. Buccanneers and Falcons both suck but they generally put up a lot of points so it could be worth watching just for that. Saints and Panthers might be nice as long as the Panthers from last week don't show up. Seahawks and Eagles is promising as is Cowboys and Patriots. Packers and 49ers were flexed into SNF and it should be pretty good. And even the Monday night game might not be bad.
  7. thewhyteboar finally knocks Keyser_Soze from his perch atop the leaderboard! Losing on the Feature Game, but doing well in the questions, thewhyteboar eeks his was into the lead. Only $400 separates 1st and 2nd place, and most of the leaderboard is still in a single week's striking distance! ########## WEEK 11 RESULTS ########## Feature Game - Pittsburgh Steelers (+3.5) at Cleveland Browns The Browns rolled over the Steelers by a score of 21-10.5(7+3.5). Bets on Cleveland win. Biggie was the only player to call Cleveland, despite them being favored! QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Steelers TD, Steelers FG, Steelers safety, Browns TD, Browns FG, Browns safety, or other? ($1,700 for the correct call) The first scoring play was a Mayfield keeper up the gut from a yard out. Calls on a Browns TD get it. Biggie was the only player to call a Cleveland touchdown to kick things off. 2) Which team in the Feature Game will be more heavily penalized in terms of YARDAGE? ($1,400 for the correct call) Cleveland by far. The Browns had a total of 121 penalty yards to Pittsburgh's 41. 3) Which game on SUNDAY will have the lowest combined score? ($1,500 for the correct game) The Bears @ Rams game tallied a mere 24 points between the two teams to be our low scoring contest for the week. Alpha1Cowboy was the only player to see this lack of offensive production coming. 4) How many total yards will Baltimore rush for this week? 0-49, 50-99, 100-149, 150-199, or 200+ ($1,700 for the right guess) Baltimore tore up the turf for a combined 263 yards rushing in Week 11. Bets on 200+ win, but nobody called it. 5) Call the winners: NY Jets at Washington Jacksonville at Indianapolis New England at Philadelphia ($1,400 for EACH correct named game winner, $2,800 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) AbsolutSurgen, BasemntDweller2, and thewhyteboar each called all 3 games correctly to earn the bonus! 6) Kings of Florida - Which Florida team will score the most points in Week 11? ($1,500 for the right team) Surprisingly it was the Dolphins who led all Florida teams with 20 points on the board. Nobody called Miami. 7) Escape Velocity - Name the player that will record the highest top speed for a scoring play in Week 11 ($3,000 for the right player) While a few ball carriers were faster, your top speed on a scoring play was 20.84 MPH, clocked by the Saints' Marcus Williams on a 55 yard interception return for a touchdown in the 4th quarter against the Bucs. Nobody called Williams. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week eleven. ($4,500 for each player named correctly, $9,000 bonus if both names are called) Jonathan Williams carried the ball for 116 yards to lead all runners and Michael Gallup caught 148 yards of passes to top the week's receivers. Nobody called either player. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @thewhyteboar - $33,250 @Biggie - $32,850 @Keyser_Soze - $29,200 Slug - $24,200 @Dodger - $19,100 @AbsolutSurgen - $18,500 @RedSoxFan9 - $12,800 @BasemntDweller2 - $8,400 @Alpha1Cowboy - $5,300 @Jose - $4,200 @SFLUFAN - $3,900 @johnny - $2,500 @Greatoneshere - $2,100 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  8. In case you weren't aware Monday Night's game is in Mexico! Maybe Mexico will have more Chargers fans than LA! Games to 👀 this week > Texans at Ravens - (Lots of points will be scored (maybe, I probably jinxed it)) > Jest at Washington (didn't these teams play already?) > Saints at Tampa Bay (Just based on exciting scoring that probably will happen) > Pats at Philadelphia (I just realized I'm mixing team names and then the city, weird!)
  9. With incredible staying power, Keyser_Soze holds the lead for 4 straight weeks! His position is tenuous though, with the top half of the leaderboard all within a one week striking distance of knocking him down from his perch! ########## WEEK 10 RESULTS ########## Feature Game - L.A. Chargers (-1.5) at Oakland Raiders The Raiders go ahead with a last minute TD to beat the Bolts by a score of 22.5(24-1.5)-26. Something something always bet on black. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Chargers TD, Chargers FG, Chargers safety, Raiders TD, Raiders FG, Raiders safety, or other? ($1,500 for the correct call) Carlson hit a 40 yard FG in the 1st quarter to kick off the scoring (Raiders FG). Biggie was the only player to call this one. 2) Tiring out the defense: Which team in the Feature Game will have the greater time of possession? ($1,200 for the correct call) The Chargers led in ToP, 34:10 to 25:50. 3) Who will score the first touchdown on Monday Night? (As always by score we mean the person holding the ball in the end-zone - $1,500 for the correct guess) Garoppolo hit Kendrick Bourne for a 10 yard TD late in the 1st quarter for the first touchdown. Nobody named Bourne. 4) Name the QB that gets sacked the most in Week 10. ($1,800 for the right name) Drew Brees and Daniel Jones both ate turf 6 times in Week 10. Guesses on either name get the cash. BasemntDweller2 was the only player who named one of these two QBs (Jones) to earn the cash for this question. 5) Call the winners: Buffalo at Cleveland NY Giants at NY Jets Kansas City at Tennessee ($1,200 for EACH correct named game winner, $2,400 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Upset specials? Not only did nobody get all 3 games right to earn the bonus, but more players didn't call any of the games correctly than in any other week. 6) How many touchdowns will be scored across the League this week on kick or punt returns? ($1,500 for the right number) For the second week in a row there were zero return touchdowns. Bets on none get it. 7) Nobody likes to see 'em, but they're still important. Name the punter that will record the longest punt in Week 10. ($2,500 for the right name) Michael Dickson hit a sick 68 yard punt to flip the field for Seattle and tally the week's longest punt. Nobody called his name. CORRECTION: Apparently I can't read because thewhyteboar actually did call Dickson! 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week ten. ($4,000 for each player named correctly, $8,000 bonus if both names are called) Derrick Henry rumbled along for 188 yards to lead all runners in Week 10, while Tyreek Hill caught 157 yards in passing to top the receivers.

  10. Looks like a rather bleh week until you get to the late games on Sunday. Monday Night is like a good MNF game for a change. Wow!
  11. For the first time this season we have a 3 time weekly leader in Keyser_Soze! Several players gained big ground while others fell considerably. While Keyser was undoubtedly the King of October, what will happen as we roll into November? Long live the King or is there a coup in the making?! ########## WEEK 9 RESULTS ########## Feature Game: New England Patriots (-3.5) at Baltimore Ravens The Patriots take their first L on the season by a score of 20-40.5(37+3.5) to Baltimore. Bets on the Ravens win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Patriots TD, Patriots FG, Patriots safety, Ravens TD, Ravens FG, Ravens safety, or other?

($1,200 for the correct call) Baltimore put two balls on the ground while New England added a third plus an interception for 4 total turnovers. 3) Tennessee @ Carolina - Over or Under 42.5 points? ($1,000 for the correct guess) 50 combined points means the over wins this one. 4) So you had a bad day: Which team will lose by the largest margin in Week 9?

Nobody picked Jacksonville. 5) Call the winners: Houston at Jacksonville Detroit at Oakland Indianapolis at Pittsburgh ($1,000 for EACH correct named game winner, $1,800 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Several players called some combination of these.

  12. Thursday is here and that means another week of subpar superb NFL football. Halloween night we have the undefeated 49ers facing the 3/4/1 Arizona Cardinals. Can Kyler Murray become a god and beat the 49ers? You will just have to watch! Houston and Jacksonville play in London. I bet it's a game most normal people would want to see! Buffalo looking to bounce back from their disappointing loss, the only thing more disappointing would be losing to the nearly winless redskins. Speaking of nearly winless, the nearly winless jets play the winless Dolphins. If Dolphins want to prove they aren't tanking this is the week to do it! The probable highlight game this week is NE at Baltimore. You get to see Lamar Jackson in prime time but will the Patriots shut him down? Monday night game is just a rematch of the week 1 game. Cowboys could clinch the division in week9?

  14. With a losing, but conservative bet on the Feature Game, Keyser_Soze manages to hang on to his top spot while several other players crept their way higher on the leaderboard.

Slug was the only player to call this one correctly. 2) Which team in the Feature Game will have the most rushing yards? ($900 for the correct call) Minnesota put up 161 yards on the ground to Washington's 85. 3) North vs South: Which division will score the most points this weekend between the NFC North and NFC South?

  15. Starting the week off terribly with Redskins vs Vikings - A revenge game, Case Keenum against his former team and Kirk Cousins vs his former team. But that's probably the only interesting thing about the game. Packers vs Chiefs was probably the highlight game this week and no Mahomes kind of takes the wind out of the sails. Then end on Monday night where everyone gets to see how bad Dolphins are!
  16. We're at the half-way point of the regular season! Time to buckle down and use what we've learned about these teams to ramp up your scores for the NFL's second act! It's still anyone's game as large jumps and even larger falls happen often in the MGT. This week however, the game belongs to Keyser_Soze who was one of only three players to hit on the Feature Game! His lead is slim; can he maintain? ########## WEEK 7 RESULTS ########## Week 7 Feature Game - Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5) at Dallas Cowboys The Eagles flew right into 2nd place in the NFC East, losing to Dallas by a score of 13.5(10+3.5)-37.

($700 for the correct call) Dallas converted 57% of their 3rd down opportunities while Philly only managed to move the sticks on 1/3rd of their attempts. Guesses on Dallas win. 3) How many total rushing yards do the Raiders put up in Week 7? 0-49, 50-99, 100-149, 150-199, 200+? ($900 for the right name) Josh Jacobs led the running game for the Raiders, tallying 124 yards. Adding in the other players who carried the ball, Oakland put up a total of 155 yards on the ground. AbsolutSurgen was the only player to correctly call 150-199 and get the cash for this question. 4) Name any TWO teams that will not surpass a single-digit score in Week 7. Teams on a Bye don't count.($900 for the correct guess) The Redskins and Jets got blanked while the Broncos and 49'ers only scored 6 and 9, respectively.

  17. So, looking like mostly decent games this week. Thursday night looks strong with Chiefs and Broncos. Wake up to see Oakland at Green Bay or Houston at Indy. The 3 late games look good (we don't count the Chargers game). Monday Night will probably be a bloodbath. Good luck Sam Darnold!
  18. Being one of only two players to bet correctly on the Feature Game and nailing the Question 5 pick 'em bonus, Dodger hangs on to his spot at the top of the leaderboard and is our first back-to-back leader of the season! Can he pull it off again? ########## WEEK 6 RESULTS ########## Week 6 Feature Game: Detroit Lions (+4.5) at Green Bay Packers The Packers won the game, but failed to cover, losing in the MGT by a score of 26.5(22+4.5)-23. Bets on Detroit win. BasemntDweller2 and Dodger we're the only players who took Detroit. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Lions TD, Lions FG, Lions safety, Packers TD, Packers FG, Packers safety, or other? ($800 for the correct call) Prater nailed a 26 yard field goal to kick off the scoring in the Feature Game. Nobody called a Lions FG. 2) Which team in the Feature Game will have the most total time of posession? ($600 for the correct call) Green Bay held the ball for 33:04 to Detroit's 26:56. 3) Ball Hawking: Which team in Week 6 will have the most takeaways? ($900 for the right name) The Panthers had 7 takeaways in Week 6, recovering 2 fumbles and picking off Jameis Winston 5 times. No player guessed Carolina. 4) Name any TWO teams that will both score more than 25 points in Week 6. ($700 for the correct guess) The Patriots, Panthers, Bucs, Seahawks, Browns, Texans, Vikings, Falcons and Cardinals all scored 25+ this week. Any combination of two of these got you the cash. 5) Call the winners: New Orleans at Jacksonville Atlanta at Arizona Washington at Miami ($600 for EACH correct named game winner, $1,200 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Dodger, Jose, Keyser_Soze, and SFLUFAN each called all three games correctly to pad their MGT accounts with that sweet bonus money. 6) Which Week 6 game will have the lowest combined score? ($900 for the correct team) The Broncos blanked the Titans by a score of 16-0 in the lowest scoring game of the week. Lot's of players saw this lack of offense coming, as 7 of 11 players in Week 6 called this game. 7) Which Week 6 game will have the highest combined score? ($900 for a correct guess) The Falcons and Cardinals went shot for shot to the tune of 67 total points, which would have gone higher but for a missed PAT. Jose was the only player to get this one right. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week six. ($2,500 for each player named correctly, $4,500 bonus if both names are called) Lamar Jackson rushed for 152 yards and Stefon Diggs took in 167 yards worth of passes to be your yardage leaders in Week 6.

  19. Looks like other than a handful of games, another week to forget in the NFL. Watch game 5 of the Astros game instead of this TNF trash. Washington and Miami are out to find out who's the best of the worst. But (Houston v KC) / (Carolina v Tampa) and maybe (San Francisco v LA) should be good
  20. Dodger hit big on his Feature Game bet and was one of an unprecedented three players to call one of our Question 8 Weekly Leaders to surge ahead and grab the top of the leaderboard going into Week 6! His lead is slim and the majority of the field is still only a single good week behind; can he hold on?! ########## WEEK 5 RESULTS ########## Week 5 Feature Game: L.A. Rams (+1.5) at Seattle Seahawks The Rams lost on the field, but won in the MGT, beating the Seahawks by a score of 30.5(29+1.5)-30. Bets on LA win. QUESTIONS 1) What will be the first scoring play of the Feature Game? Rams TD, Rams FG, Rams safety, Seahawks TD, Seahawks FG, Seahawks safety, or other? ($700 for the correct call) Zurlein booted an early 47 yarder for the first score, a Rams FG. Only Dodger and Slug called this one correctly. 2) Which team in the Feature Game will have the most total combined rushing yards? ($500 for the correct call) Seattle more than doubled LA's rushing total, 167 to 82. 3) Name the QB that will be sacked the most in Week 5. ($800 for the right name) The Jets apparently forgot to activate their O-Line as Luke Falk was sacked a ridiculous 9 times. Nobody called this. 4) Who will score the first touchdown (as always, the guy standing in the end-zone) in the Jacksonville @ Carolina game? ($700 for the correct guess) McCaffery took it into the endzone on 1st and goal from the 5 to kick off the scoring in this one. 5) Call the winners: Buffalo at Tennessee Chicago at Oakland Cleveland at San Francisco ($500 for EACH correct named game winner, $1,000 bonus if you call all 3 correctly) Several players got one or two of these. Nobody got all 3 to earn the bonus. 6) Name the highest scoring team in Week 5. ($800 for the correct team) The Texans served a 50 burger on Atlanta, hanging up 53 points to lead all teams in scoring. Keyser_Soze was the only player to see this smackdown coming. 7) Name the lowest scoring team in Week 5. ($800 for a correct guess) Cleveland couldn't get anything going on Monday night, only scoring 3 points and taking up the rear in Week 5's scoring totals. Jose was the only player who call this one. 8) Name the player who will rush for the most yards AND the player that will have the most receiving yards in week five. ($2,500 for each player named correctly, $4,000 bonus if both names are called) McCaffery led Week 5's ground game with 176 yards and Amari Cooper pulled down 226 through the air to lead all receivers. Three players (Dodger, RedSoxFan9, and SFLUFAN) called McCaffery's name for the rushing title! Nobody called Cooper though, so no bonus awarded. ######### LEADERBOARD ######### @Dodger - $11,600 @Biggie - $10,550 @Keyser_Soze - $10,100 @RedSoxFan9 - $10,100 @AbsolutSurgen - $7,200 @thewhyteboar - $6,850 @Jose - $6,600 @SFLUFAN - $5,500 @Greatoneshere - $4,900 Slug - $3,700 @johnny - $2,500 @BasemntDweller2 - $1,700 @Kal-El814 - $1,500 As always, if you think I mathed wrong let me know. ########## THE SEASON ######### Week 1 <-- See here for full rules if you're interested in joining the competition!

  21. This week seems to have some intriguing match-ups, or some games that won't be totally lopsided anyway. One of the highlights being the return of Khalil Mack to Oakland, except this time he's going to show them they made a huge mistake trading him away. Or maybe the Raiders will show them that they are totally better without him! Bucs and Saints will probably have a lot of points scored, at least based on last week and if Teddy is up for it. And the trend of good Thursday night games continues with Seahawks and Rams, both teams 3-1. Should be pretty wild!
