    Yeah... not good.
    Plus the Eagles were given a TD when the refs missed an incomplete pass.
    4th string QB has been a bench sitter for 10 years and is doing terribly.

    I wonder where I’ll be able to watch the Super Bowl in Singapore at 7:30 Monday morning.

    Might qualify as one of the worst games this year.

    I had planned to tune in and root for the Niners. Then I saw the qb was knocked out of the game, and decided it would be pointless and painful. Catching up on chores instead. Might tune in for the KC game.

    Okay, Chiefs/Bengals might be a better game.

    I looked around a little waiting in the airport and found a brewpub in Singapore with a nice looking Double New England IPA that is having a Superbowl watch party. Might need a nap after the game.

    Bengal #58, who made the fatal 15 yd penalty which allowed a KC win, was sobbing on the bench after the game.
    I think he's gonna have to take a separate flight home.

    Should be a good Superbowl.

    He was already out of bounds before contact was made. Gonna draw a flag every time.

    The first game was a mess in almost every possible way - which was too bad.

    The out of bounds hit at the end of the Chiefs Bengals game was indeed penalty worthy & the poor guy will be suffering about it for years. Mahomes impressed me with his toughness - as he was obviously hurting.

    It was a good call and a bad thing for a professional to do.

    I have one nagging question: When the refs could not tell if the punt hit the wire, why not replay the down?

    You need conclusive evidence to overturn a call.

    As a lifelong Giants fan, and likely biased, my observation has been that the Eagles, and to a lesser extent, the Cowboys, are luckier than most other teams with respect to officiating.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see both teams I was rooting for win. Surprised because it rarely works out that way, after years of haphazard observation of the game I've settled on cheering for the team wearing what in my opinion is the best uniform (putting that 4 year theater degree to work!). A child of the Central Coast of California I have a soft spot for the 49'ers and their red/gold outfits are great...but in white they were no match for the classic muted green the Eagles sported yesterday. I do like the Bengal helmet, had they gone straight up "white tiger" I'd be feeling the sting of a loss today. Instead the sometimes garish red with gold accents of Kansas City carried the day.

    For the record my dislike of Seahawk neon green and the turquoise/orange of the Dolphins puts them on my rarely-cheered-for list.

    And this video doesn’t even include the record-breaking field goal by the Ravens that occurred 5 seconds after the play clock expired!

    As for 4:08…. I can remember exactly where I was on M-50 when that play came across my car radio. The Lion’s color commentator absolutely lost his s**t

    ***k the Cowboys.

    Navy primary with orange secondary is my favorite color combo in sports.

    Just looks good.

    Exception for the greatest uniform in professional sports:

    The Cowboys play an important role in the NFL - they give everyone a team to root against.
