    I guess the moral of the story is to not get ahead of Tom Brady 27-3.

    Okay, Iím not a football, but that was an exciting ending to a game. It seemed like a farce for most of it, and was punctuated by a few truly remarkable throws and catches.

    Pretty cool.

    Truly exciting ending to the TB-LA game. All 3 of the first 3 games ended with a game winning field goal & all 3 were won by the underdog. Good fun. Buffalo & KC are having a real game of it!

    Bills will be wishing they kicked off short. Worried about Hill I guess.

    Happy for KC. I have nothing against J. Allen, but I do tend to root for the Chiefs. I'll be rooting for them again next week.

    Hoping for a Chiefs vs 49ers Superbowl... and I won't know who to root for.

    One of the better football games I've watched. 25 points in the last 1:50! Heartbreaker for the Bills. Got nothing against KC, but I was kinda rooting to Buffalo since it's been such a long time for them.

    After the Bills scored with only 13 seconds left, I turned off the TV in disgust.
    I can't believe I missed that ending! I found it on Youtube so I could see it to believe it.

    Wasn't it though. Hard act to follow. Lots of great young qb's coming up and shining these days. I'm just sorry San Diego... errrr, the Chargers... didn't make it in so I could watch Justin Herbert some more.

    I posted last year, following the Superbowl, that I didn't want to take anything away from Brady, but the Tampa defense literally shut KC down, which, IMO, was a major factor in the bucs winning that game.

    The Bills/Chief game certainly did have an exciting ending from a scoring point of view, and the winner, it can be reasonably deemed, was decided by the coin flip.

    Where the hell was the defense? If they can't score they can't win. Public really does love offense, but, IMO, defenses often win or lose games.

    Buffalo ended the season with the highest ranked defense in the NFL. So - it is a good defense - but KC had a tremendous offense that day.

    Yes, the defenses were there. The league has simply tilted the playing field a bit toward favorable rules for offenses. Makes for a more exciting 'product'.

    I watched a bit of that game, mostly the first quarter and then the end. To me it seemed like the defense was pretty gassed by the end of the game but did pretty good early on. Those two QB's had it going on.

    Just getting to sit down and watch KC & Cinn. Chiefs up 21-3 when I sat down, and boom now the game is tied. Chiefs have one quarter to make it happen.

    I agree Kevin - best payoffs I can remember. KC-Cinn was a real surprise - I thought it was going to be a blowout. I kinda like Stafford seeing some success - all those who blamed him for Detroit's woes are learning that maybe it wasn't all him.

    It has been one quality game after another, and now a Super Bowl filled with great stories. Matt Stafford is a great example of a guy who finally found the right team. Joe Burrow is a great example of a player changing the culture of the team around him, both at LSU and now Cincy. Both are guys you want to root for even if they don’t play for ‘your’ team.

    It's amazing to me how seldom this truth is recognized. Putting a good rookie qb on the wrong team - esp. if he then expected to be a 'savior' and start the first year - is most often a recipe for disaster.

    As an Oregon fan, I watched in dismay at what landing in Detroit did to Joey Harrington's career. And likewise what the mess in Tennessee (about 37 head coaches and OC's in the first 3 years) did to Marcus Mariotta. OTOH, you have Justin Herbert... who landed in a good fit, with a better-managed organization... and is now having success.

    This is why I was pleased when NE traded Garapollo saying he was too good to sit on the bench.

    Jimmy G. Sucked. Scored 1 touchdown in 20 quarters for the niners. Glad the season is over for me. Glad to be moving on from this winter sport.the last three weekends were great entertainment. SprIng is arriving with cherry blossom buds in two weeks.

    Great games. Watched them all through the season. Really looking for the Super Bowl.

    Here is an interesting article about Joe Burrow.
