what happened to let the play play out and then go back and review it, even if they call that a fumble now the browns are getting massively screwed

In that game they did have to game plan around Flacco’s passing, not just focus on stopping the run.
That would be the case this time too. It’s not like they have no passing game. He gets the ball to his tight ends pretty reliably.

Chargers get an INT in the end zone. They fumble the return, when it could have been downed in the end zone.

Well since Flacco went 4-10-34 with 0TD and 1INT I guess it was pretty masterful game planning.

17 completions in a row for Foles. Will the Eagles have a window before he opts out to trade him?
Nope. There is a mutual option for 2019. All he has to do is write a check for $2 million to avoid being dealt.

To limit hits. He doesn’t go under, he goes over the top. He would have been drilled. He is not a big guy.
He's not very good at limiting hits, as you've noted. Seems like an odd time to be careful.

He has been doing this on goal line and very short yardage, and until today got away with it.

Playoffs may be a different story.

Love that Aikman has no fear in calling out the refs and NFL for phantom calls and the roughing the passer rules.

If the new rules about what a catch is mean anything, that’s a TD for Philly.

(Note: it’s unclear that the rules mean anything.)

Dramatic PIT win followed, oh 30 seconds later, by an epic CLE mistake to cost the game vs. BAL would be fantastic.
To stay with the theme of Cleveland's year in 2018, it won't be a mistake, it will be a HORRENDOUS flag, screwing the Browns and Pitt and it would be funny.

All I really want, deep down, is for one of Pittsburgh or Baltimore to have their heart absolutely ripped out at the end. As long as that happens, I'll go to bed happy tonight.

Donald two sacks away from the season record I believe.
20+ sacks from an interior lineman is insane. He’s tops in pressures, QB hits and TFLs as well. It’s a QB league but if a defensive player is ever to win the MVP again, he’s got a good case.

What does this mean? Just a ridiculous post.
The games with meaning have been largely uncompetitive? Mayfield trying to change that now, and Chicago might lay off with Rams blowout.
