i legit can't believe that the jets might've just took themselves away from a generational quarterback, and set themselves back at least five more years. only the jets can do this.

Jags have the pick now, strength of schedule. Thought conference play mattered but think it is SoS.

Thanks. Something to watch.
Actually, looks like I was wrong. I mistakenly assumed the same rules would apply as breaking a tie for a playoff spot. Appears the rules are different for breaking ties to determine draft order.

https://www.nfl.com/standings/tie-breaking-procedures
Tie-Breaking Procedure For Selection Meeting
  1. Clubs not participating in the playoffs shall select in the first through 20th positions in reverse standings order.
  2. The Super Bowl winner is last and Super Bowl loser is next-to-last.
  3. The losers of the Conference Championship games shall select 29th and 30th based on won-lost-tied percentage.
  4. The losers of the Divisional playoff games shall select 25th through 28th based on won-lost-tied percentage.
  5. The losers of the Wild Card games shall select 21st through 24th based on won-lost-tied percentage.
If ties exist in any grouping except (2) above, such ties shall be broken by strength-of-schedule. If any ties cannot be broken by strength-of-schedule, the divisional or conference tie-breakers, if applicable, shall be applied. Any ties that still exist shall be broken by a coin flip.

Mahomes is 21/40 for 206 yards early the 4th quarter. New Orleans has done as good a job as you can do defensively and the Chiefs still have 28 points.

On one of their TD drives, Romo said something like, "The Saints are playing great defense...about as well as you can play...and still KC is about to score a TD here."

Yep.

Now with that in mind...in their last two meetings, the Pats held the Chiefs' offense to

23 points, 346 yards
19 points, 323 yards

Which is pretty impressive.

If you are coaching the Saints’ offense and your entire mission is anything besides how to get the ball in Alvin Kamara’s hands, you’re a shit coach.

Brees is 7/24 today.

He wasn't ready and he shouldn't have played today. Stupid. What's the point of starting a guy with 11 broken ribs?

This will put Green Bay in great position for the #1 seed and the NFC bye. Which could be huge.

Yeah, Hurts threw a beautiful pass on third down. Good defensive play to break it up, but it could have been caught.
Just like the play, or lack of play, by Josh Reynolds. He didn't try for the ball. You sometimes have to try to catch the ball when you're fighting off a DB.
