    My team may be the worst in NFL history.

    Fun times.

    Yeah the jets really don't seem to have any redeeming qualities at the moment.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Expected to watch Chiefs @ Bills last night, actually saw Ravens @ Bills, I suppose.

    Holy shit that running game of the Chiefs. Most rushing yards for a Reid-led team ever. And Bell was't even on the roster yet.

    At least your not competing for becoming the worst division ever also.

    Well, that was a damn entertaining week 7. Even the Jets managed to make it if not a good, but at least a somewhat exciting game.

    And while I feel bad for Andy Dalton for suffering that absolutley terrible late hit, I am at the same time quite pleased to see the Cowboys getting destroyed week after week. I can't stand them. They remind me in to many ways of Germany's most hated team: Bayern München. Just that Bayern has had plenty of success in the last decades. Fortunately the Cowboys not so much.

    Absolute shambles from the Packers, not impressed at all

    After almost 40 years of watching games, I just can't do it anymore. Fuck the Jets.

    Just sack Pettine, he's clearly way out of his depth.

    That one took me by surprise. I expected a loss and hoped for it being not a blowout. And then somehow we went to actually win that one ... go figure.

    Cook was obviously outstanding in this one. But more to my surprise a) Rodgers had some awkward throws/incompletions and b) or defense did a decent enough job.

    Pretty inclined to agree at this point. Something needs to change or we aren't getting anywhere near the Superbowl this season.

    There was awful 3rd down play calling throughout the game when the defense had previous worked hard to put themselves in a good position to make a stop. I'm no nfl expert but I seriously could not understand what the defense was trying to achieve at multiple points in the game.

    Another entertaining weekend behind us, with some unexpected games and/or nail-biting endings

    - The undefeated Steelers struggled quite a bit against the "who-plays-this-week-QB?" Cowboys.

    - Didn't expect the Bills to dominate the Seahawks the way they did. Yeah, Seattle's defense isn't that good, so Bills scoring wasn't that surprising. The opposite match-up however surprised me. Bills' D did a brilliant job of shutting down Wilson and his offense.

    - Miami @ Arizona: very entertaining, would watch again, just so that the NFL schedule will give us another Tua-Kyler (implying both stay with their current team) duel in 4 years :-/

    - I feel for the Chargers. Losing that way once is painful. They now lost it 3(?) times so late.

    - Did Brady just got his ass kicked?

    - What a terrible coincidence that 2 years ago Smith broke his leg and had to come in as the backup for Allen who at least broke his angle. :-(

    So with week 11 in the books and 2 games in week 12 already played, there's seriously - actually - really - I mean, c'mon - how hard can it be? - the NFC East with the divison leader - the WTF ... erhm ... WFT - Washington Football Team of all!, with a record of 4-7-0. Let me spell that out for you: Four(!) - Seven(!) - Zero(!)

    And due to the fact that 2 teams already played their week 12 games, the best (is it even allowed to use that adjective to describe this?) possible record for the divion leader after week 12 has been played, is 4-6-1 (Eagles).

    Wow, just wow ...

    The NFC East needs to be relegated after the season. Whoever is in last place in the division gets added to the ACC.
    Quarantined and loving life.

    And after Sunday, another contender arose from the ashes. No other than the New York Football Giants. In an astonishing move, they are now the divsion leader - well, it was "just" the Bengals after all, so perhaps not so much.

    Also: Denver having played without a QB ... interesting times indeed.

    Trubisky is terrible. Pretty much all I got from staying up to 4am to watch the Packers. Rodgers hit some nice throws though.

    Holy fuck the Bears are shit, how did they get to 5-5 before last night?

    When their first rush went for 50 yards I did think oh boy here we go, but after that it was too easy.

    To put this into perspective: they're so terrible that my 0-5 Vikings, having lost a lot of crucial players in their D this season, now in theory have a shot at the playoffs.

    OK, prediction time (no, not that one): where will Darnold end up next season? The Jets are clearly getting the #1 overall pick and anything other than taking Lawrence would be insanity (... though you never now, it's the Jets after all). Darnold deserves a better team and there are some franchises which are in for a decent to good QB next year, e.g. the aforementioned Bears, the Saints (I don't think Hill is the answer), the Jaguars (depending on their draft position/pick), the Colts, considering Rivers' age. I could even see the 49ers (re-)considering Jimmy G, the Steelers (again: because of Big Ben's age). And who knows what the Lions have on their mind next year. They might be able to trade Stafford away to accumulate some picks and build around Darnold.
