What a week of performances that was in the NFL, as some of the top teams soared, and the crap teams continued to get stuck in the quagmire of mediocrity.
End of the season ‘am I right’?
To recap the silly week that was 14 in the NFL, Wade & Ryan break down all of the past slew of games, plus NFL news in our Panto Week Podcast.
Among some of the other things that the guys discuss in the episode.
Hey remember COVID? Well, it’s back and better with a whole new upgrade.
The Omicron is here, and it has the unique the ability to distinguish between ‘immunised’ and ‘vaccinated’. And it’s good at it too.
OBJ and the Rams took a slap on the face from the virus this week, as many teams might have their playoff run curtailed by the nasty.
Let’s add even more drama to the NFL playoffs!
What’s up with Joe Burrow and the Bengals?
After a finger issue led to his weekly slide, it looks like Cincy might indeed be in trouble to actually make it to the big show.
Joe Mixon can only carry the team so far, before the D and the rest of the team needs to step up.
The AFC North is in freefall, and the Bengals had it all within their grasp.
Remember when the Buffalo Bills were the number lock in the AFC?
Now they are ‘in the hunt’ as their playoff chances are about as likely as a balmy Christmas day in Western New York.
Perhaps having a running game is essential to an NFL team?
Ryan Cull is in nail biting mode, as the Bills are in danger of getting stuck against some tough teams moving into the post season.
Get Up Lamar
What are the Ravens without Lamar Jackson?
No, really…what are they?
Because they seem like they are screwed without him.
Injuries Galore sounds like a great band name, as well as the diagnosis for the woes of Baltimore.
A shot at the playoffs is a getting harder and harder every week, especially when they lose to divisional rivals.
The 49ers are playing some exceptional football thanks to Deebo Samuel and a slew of San Fran running backs.
Now boasting a 7-6 record, the 49ers now face a gauntlet of tough divisional games to round out 2021.
Let’s face it, no one really wants to face San Fran right now…as they are able to throw an ‘L’ into anyone’s season hopes.
What the hell is with the refs this season? Are they trying to suck? Trying to ruin the game? Or are they just idiots?
There have been some truly shameful calls by refs this year, which seems odd given how technology has gifted us with replays, close ups etc in recent decades.
Maybe the refs know that they are in danger of being replaced by robots, and that they want one last chance to screw it up before they hand it over to their digital overlords?
Either way, they suck…and we’re watching you.
It’s a great weekend of NFL ahead, as we welcome games on Saturday night to add a little flava to mid December.
Make sure you join us every weekend at the Sports Bar & Grill, where we will be cooking up all the games you need this weekend.
TNF is the high flying Kansas City Chiefs vs the struggling LA Chargers at home. Another easy win for Mahomes?
Saturday night brings us the Las Vegas Raiders visiting the Cleveland Browns at 9:30pm GMT. A perfect way to avoid the crowds and cuddle up on the couch with someone you loathe.
The late Saturday (early Sunday) contest is a real cracker, as the Colts dome it up to protect themselves against the dangerous Patriots. This game doesn’t kick off until 1:20am, so hit the Sports Bar for a boozy breakfast and watch it then.
See you Sunday at either Clapham or Old Street. Book a table so that you can watch the games on your own TV.
