So the Seahawks fan wins by picking the 9ers against his team in a game SF wins by inches on the last play of the last regular season game of the year. Well played.
:thup:
I had a gut feeling they would lose and although it goes against the grain, I had to go with head over heart. It tore me apart when I saw that last play of the game. I stayed up and watched it and was 90% gutted they lost but 10% happy as I was top of the league. Cocknetboy311 - I can assure you it was down to luck over judgement - mostly.

For the first 4 weeks or so I didn't even notice there was a spread :)

Best not overthink these things!

Congrats again.

Wish there was some sort of playoff pool around.

Titans are well undervalued against Patriots, can see them winning against a team well past their best.

Texans v Bills is an exciting game, but there has been some incredibly naive play calling and execution from both teams in the 4th & OT. Whichever team wins this is out next week, imo. Obviously not a stretch of a prediction.

When Houston converted the 3rd & 18 on the game winning drive, the play clock was at zero for a full second before the snap.

Not worth mentioning for the clowns in the booth for espn.

Announcers were so bad that late in the game I actually googled John Madden to see if he was still alive.

Absolutely. Annoying that it ends at week 17.

I bet on it, but did not expect the Titans to roll over the Ravens. Wow

My two teams playing tonight. Chiefs and Seahawks. Got knows who I'll support if they both make the Superbowl but I'm trying not to get ahead on myself.

Think the Chiefs will beat Texans comfortably, but going to be close in the later game.

Lol. The West Ham effect. 21 - 0 down in the first quarter.

The way the Chiefs and Ravens have played having a week off is not helpful.

Yup, unlike West Ham the Chief have staged an incredible turn around. Leading at half time. :shock:

Don’t know where Cuenca went, but he must be having a cow about now.

AFC championship game is going to be interesting. Titans are peaking, and doing it on the road. They took out a qb that isn’t dissimilar to Mahomes. Maybe shades of the 07 Giants road show?

I think 2 video calls blew this game. 2nd Green Bay td wasn’t a td. He was short. And the 2rd down play after the 2 minute warning 3rd qtr was not a 1st down. Hometown calls.

I reckon the Niners will wipe the Pack off the map, and I’m taking the Titans to continue their upset run.

Packers feast on them. They were handed their first game against the Lions on a series of bogus calls that allowed them to come back late.

If you ask any of their lot about it however, they'll only want to talk Fail Mary. Guess Seattle had some karma coming their way.

For his sake, hopefully turned it off after the failed fake punt. What a bonehead move that was.
