Funny game. Entertaining anyway. Colts were gifted points and gave it away like an old man returning soup at the deli.

The Dion Lewis comments were especially annoying to me in light of the fact that the Patriots (and Dion himself, obviously) were responsible for picking him off the scrap heap, believing in him like no team ever had, and giving him the chance to EARN that big pay day. Just be happy when you win, be privately motivated and petty if you like, but have a little perspective and self control. But maybe I'm being a whiny jerk.

Exactly. Fuck those Patriots for giving him a chance when his NFL career was likely over!

That Snow Bowl kick will never get old.

Still one of the top 10-15 most amazing single plays I’ve seen given the magnitude and degree of difficulty. I have no fucking idea how he hit that.

I think my favorite thing this week is that Da Bears signed their own death warrant

I was at every Patriots home game from 1998-2013, including playoffs (not to mention probably another 50+ before and since), and to this day, that is still the greatest time I've ever had at a Pats game. When he came out to kick that field goal, the stands were almost empty because most of the stadium was in the aisles because that's where they stopped when the ruling came down on the tuck rule play. We got more snow during that game than we got during every other game I've been to combined. It just dumped snow from the opening kick to the last kick. I have no idea how he made that one, or the game winner. I refuse to believe anyone has made a more difficult kick in NFL history. There was literally no possible way to get any kind of footing.

I remember getting tickets to that game from my mom’s then-boyfriend. I was a broke ass college kid, so I planned to sell them at the stadium. I drove down with my then-girlfriend, but when we got there, the snow falling was so beautiful I convinced her to go to the game. Both of us were viciously underdressed, but we slogged through. After the Tuck Rule, I begged her to stay, just in case, just in case, then apologized when we kept the ball.

What's more boring? The band playing 9 to 5 at Tootsies or the week 17 Sunday night football game between the colts and the titans where the winner gets a playoff birth?

Why not just roll over and rest your starters vs the Vikings to get them at home next week, now they get Folsie and the Cinderella Iggles.

Signed their own death warrant is right.

Watch it end up Iggles/Ravens in the Super Bowl.

Boy won't that be fun.

If you're a Pittsburgh fan - there's still a glimmer of hope. Score is staying tie-able.
