This game is hilarious in so many ways.

They're going to kick a 50 yarder on 2nd down? lol

Now Carr back out there....

It's a shame "this game is drunk" is so overused, because that's the perfect description of what I just watched.

This was like Week 1 of the season with the replacement refs except this time only the refs were competent.

Yay! Over.

Man, Derek Carr always has that ‘I need to score some coke NOW’ look in his eyes. It’s unsettling, especially when combined with that 70s porn mustache.

One of the few benefits of going to a shit school is that sometimes they get athletes like Derek Carr and Aaron Judge.

Gruden told Carr if you ever see this look throw this play and it showed up on a crazy down that might not have happened if the kicker gets in the field faster last play of the game. Crazy sport

The next Monday night game is the Lions versus the Packers. Even though the game might not be as exciting, it could be an interesting matchup for the Manning cast if Peyton and Eli really let it rip since the game will feature one QB who has been public about his desire to leave the team he led to a Super Bowl in Aaron Rodgers, and another QB who was very publicly run out of town by the team he led to a Super Bowl in Jared Goff.

Eli certainly knows what it's like to pull a Rodgers, since he did that before the 2004 draft, and in a way, Peyton has been in both Goff's and Rodgers' shoes since he was dumped by the Colts after they drafted Luck, and he knows what it's like to shop for a better situation to win another ring late in his career.
