    Shutting out Brett Hundley Packers isn't a notable statistic on any occasion. Really you could hardly call yourself a top ten defense if you didn't shut them out.

    Now if they shut out Aaron Rodger's Packers...........

    That'd be impressive.

    Wow, pretty good first quarter between Titans & Patriots, and impressed that Mariota helped give the Titans the 7-0 lead.

    And the offense looked like hot garbage in that game, too, Grim. Good job on shutting down a QB that almost gave the Browns their only win.

    This Patriots-Titans game feels like it's already over. Patriots are just doing whatever they want and Tennessee has some stupid penalties.

    So much for that good start.

    And the referees screwed them on the punt.

    Well, look at the team they are playing and where they are playing them.

    The count is now up to 4 missed calls against NE. They aren't even trying to hide it tonight.

    Combine that with Patriots having a much more complete and better team, to Titans playcalling in the second quarter being dog crap...

    Wow.

    Someone goes in motion, and refs in Gillette call it a false start.

    I'm sorry, The Pats had this game most likely anyway. Why on fuck does this team get so many calls their way? Every game, almost. They get massively favorable calls to them.

    Re: 2017 NFL Playoffs Thread - Divisional Round Start

    I'm not going to sit here and say the Titans should have won or anything like that or anything about the Patriots talent, but Stevie Wonder could see that was one of the worst refereed games in quite some time (like most Patriots games where a team loses because of a critical screwjob call) and the Titans deserved better. Every team that plays New England deserves better and it's embarrassing to watch a game like that take place in the top professional league of football. I love how Romo tried to cover the obvious about that "one" second at the end of the first half, by saying the clock operators are not from the home stadium. Who cares? It was still obviously a rigged way to let the Patriots attempt an extra field goal.

    Just an awful game all around with so many BS calls that benefit the Patriots I only wish Cereal Killer was still online so he could justify it all somehow.

    I knew the Titans would lose the game, but the officiating was fucking awful. It seemed like everything was called on the Titans and wasn't called on the Patriots. It almost feels like the refs gave the Pats the game.

    Aside from that, the Titans aren't there yet. It will take two more seasons to be competitive enough to go deeper in the playoffs. The Patriots knew how to beat the Titans, they obviously got experience. I hope the Titans grow further to a true competitive team next season.

    Re: 2017 NFL Playoffs Thread - Divisional Round Start

    The sad and hilarious thing? Living in New England, all I ever hear about is how the refs are always out to get The Pats. How Goodell hates them, and is trying to get rid of Brady. How they always get screwed.

    Even in games they win, fans here whine and moan about refs. Every single fan of the team on my Facebook does it every game.

    Right? They try to use Deflategate as a way to say the Patriots get screwed by the NFL and Goodell more than anyone...I don't buy it.

    Kraft and Goodell were always buddy buddy, but I think after the deflate scandal Goodell knew he had to do something. But even after all that, if their friendship was no more, where was Kraft when Goodell's contact extension was happening? The only one fighting it was Jones. Kraft was right there in Goodell's corner. Goodell and Kraft obviously made up behind closed doors. Deflategate was all just for the public to make us think they were doing something to stop them.

    Kind of ironic, after early in the year (around start of the season) Jerry Jones said he was not in favor of extending Goodell's contract...And a multitude of bad officiating plagued numerous Dallas games after.

    Not to say they would have fared a whole lot better than they did, but it was certainly noticeable the lack of calls made on teams playing them.

    Re: 2017 NFL Playoffs Thread - Divisional Round Start

    I really despise the Patriots, I really do. But I knew the game was obvious because the Patriots are too damn good of a team in the playoffs. Brady murdered the Titans secondary and as usual. Mariota was not a bad quarterback. He managed to throw two touchdowns and completed over half of his passes. The Patriots were winners and they will find ways to play in another Super Bowl. They are hard to beat.

    Oh, what about the Falcons choking in the playoffs against the Eagles? The Falcons offense was a huge disappointment against the Eagles defense. the Falcons defense did their job by allowing 15 points, but the offensive talent the Falcons has, wasn't pushed hard enough to score. I think it's time for the Falcons to get rid of their offensive coordinator. The Falcons offense was far from what it was the last season.

    Re: 2017 NFL Playoffs Thread - Divisional Round Start

    Last time the Jaguars played here, it was 73 degrees. In 2007 when they won it Heinz Field during the playoffs it was in the 40s. It's 4 out here today...the low is -3, and that warm little Florida team has to come up here and play on our turf.

    It's going to be an entirely different game than we saw early in the year. Not to mention we weren't taking them seriously that first time, and it always takes the Steelers a couple months to get into the grove. And we're still pissed we lost that bad to them...

    AND it's Blake Bortles. Fournette doesn't have good history in cold games either.

    So I'm feeling pretty good about this game. It's our destiny to win, so we can go ahead and lose next week to New England.
