Any thoughts on the games?

I think the loss of their QB kills Philly (though they're my sentimental NFC favorites) - Ryan leads Atlanta to a win  21-10

I *want* the Titans to slay the....."titans" - but I dont see that happening.  It's shaping up to be a blowout for Tommy Terrific.  NE 38 - TEN 7

I'm having a tough time getting a feel for any of the games this weekend.

I'm going Eagles and Titans. The Eagles are still better than the Falcons, even with Napoleon Dynamite at QB, and the Patriots are overconfident and due for a playoff stumble.

What a shock. The referees are taking over the game on behalf of the Patriots.  Eyes Sick

That false start on 4th down-turned-neutral zone infraction vs. Tennessee was such bullshit. The f-ing guard MOVED. But no... first down for New England.

And when a Tennessee receiver gets physical with a DB within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage, it's offensive pass interference. But when Gronk runs 8 yards and shoves a DB down, it's a clean play. 

Huh. How 'bout that.

I just said the same thing...  Refs brought their Patriot Magic Dust.   PATS going with the no huddle... Imagine that !

That bullshit neutral zone infraction completely changed the game. Instead of Tennessee getting the ball back, likely in New England territory, the drive was extended and now the Patriots are inside the Titan's 10 with 2 minutes to go.

Plus, when a Patriot defender grabs a facemask in plain view of God and the world (as on Tennessee's 4th down play at the end of the half)... don't call it. Just pretend like it never happened and give New England the ball. 

And then... let the clock sit on one second for 2 seconds at the end of the half so New England can try a FG. 

Also... never, EVER call a holding penalty on New England, no matter how obvious and blatant. But it Tennessee gets a good run? Flag 'em for holding.

Unbelievable. Fucking refs.

I'm not watching.  I'b be curious if Harrison who routinely was horse collared and held while a Steeler, yet NEVER a penalty call on his opponent is doing as a Patriot?  I would expect that things will flip 180 degrees now that he wears a Pats uniform.
