I guess I have to root for the Colts since Taylor eventually helped me win my fantasy league. Plus, fuck the Bills.

Lol. Ball clearly wasn't caught. Announcer is like, "That can't be a completion."

Yes. It really can't.
 
I'd rather see them in the SB than KC and Buffalo is probably KC's biggest AFC threat, so a Bills win wouldn't be the worst thing that ever happened.
In fairness, I'd probably rather see Cleveland win it all, but Buffalo is my pick among teams which I think have a realistic chance to win the Super Bowl. (As long as the Saints don't win, I'll be OK.)

The official who made the initial call didn’t have a good angle and understandably thought the ball had been caught. Good job by the crew to get together and make the right call, rather than forcing the Bills to burn a challenge.

When the Pats aren't playing, all I really ask is that games stay close and end on Hail Marys and Music City Miracles.

The ball was clearly not caught and Hilton got up and the ball was 5-8 feet from where he was. At no point did he come close to even getting a hand on the ball, let alone possessing it.

Congratulating the refs for getting this one right seems generous.

Can’t imagine Wentz landing on a current playoff team. Kirk Cousins is a free agent, and the Lions may want to move on from Matt Stafford; I see those guys landing in NO and IND if Brees and Rivers retire.
Why? Because Philly will want to stick it to him?

That Denver/Raven game in January 2013 was the best Saturday playoff game in years. Something like that would be cool.

Ugh. That had a Flacco special, didn't it?
No, just the Denver D shitting the bed (then Peyton in OT). That was so much fun. I was living in Colorado at the time. Watching the game with Broncos fans. So much fun. Almost as fun as the Super Bowl the next year.

Because Wentz was the worst QB in the league this season. If he’s willing to rework his contract a bit, he’ll find a team willing to give him a chance to revive his career, but I don’t think it will be a team that’s still playing, except maybe Washington.

Philly will take any offer if they can get Wentz off their hands. So I agree with you. Playoff team or not is immaterial.
I’m suggesting that the acquiring team’s expectations for Wentz will be low. He might be a good fit in New England or Denver, or in Dallas if Dak signs elsewhere. I can’t see a team like the Colts jumping on Wentz when better options will be available.

Okay, gotcha. That seems like a fair take.

Wentz might be better than Rivers. So I think they are a possibility, even if it is a slight one.

It seems that Rivers is almost constantly changing the play to a run at the line of scrimmage -- and the Bills are waiting for the run.

Indy plays for the FG after getting the ball into the red zone.

I'm sure that won't come back to haunt them.

The Diggs for Justin Jefferson trade has got to be one of the best win/win trades in recent NFL history.
