Steelers/Ravens and Texans/Colts moved to Saturday.

Seems like they could have picked a better game than Pit/Bal as the Ravens have the #1 seed clinched and *may* rest players.

Aiden O Connell and Jarrett Stidham on Saturday?

Come on. LV/Denver is in the bottom 3 for the Saturday choice.

it was vegas for the last 2 seasons before this one edit kc was in the last 2 sat day games why not KC/LAC the charegers shouild just promote this coach they have now he is not haif bad

my only nitpick is why shouild buffalo know their fate when the better choice is hou/indy i mean if pitt and or jax loses for all we know buff couild sit their main players

I think Lamar plays 1st half.

Looking forward to Sunday Night. Go Bills (if they have already clinched a wc by then)

Buffalo will be playing for the division and #2 seed. They could rest players but it would mean going on the road probably at KC vs playing the 7 seed at home.

Exactly. No matter what happens, Buffalo will be playing to win. In one instance, it would be for their playoff lives and the division title. In the other, it would be playing for the Division title and a home game against a not very good team versus being the 7 seed and going on the road against KC.

Buffalo wants the division title. It's far more important.

Small bump as a reminder.

I’m pretty sure the combo of a Ravens and Texans win locks the Pats into 4th seed worst case, so get your Stroud and Huntley jerseys out for tomorrow

Not quite... I think you also need the Cowboys to win.

Assuming the Cowboys win, I believe they need two of the four below to win to have a better pick than the Giants:

Ravens
Texans
GB
Raiders

I know the NFL does this because of playoff scenarios but it's wild to look at the schedule and see 6 games at 1pm and 7 games at 4-:25pm.

What a colossal shift in the allocation of games. Last week was 10 at 1pm and 3 at 4pm.

That may have something to do with the fact that last Sunday was New Years Eve.

Trevor Lawrence has to at least try and play in this game, right? It’s unfair that narratives can get attached to an athlete and follow them the rest of their careers (until they win), but the Jags losing the game while Lawrence is on the sidelines in sweatpants is going to bring a lot of criticism down on him.

No, probably not, only because every week but the last is heavily titled towards the 1pm games. It's never particularly close in terms of the number of games.

In the "any little bit helps" area, Pats are rooting for Baltimore and Houston today.

What rules were changed based on this rivalry? You guys said it twice, tell us.

He means the Colts whining about the Pats right?

How can they not cut to commercial with Counting Crows "Raining in Baltimore"?

T'was a weak attempt to break Harris' balls for being a bit of a bust.
Has he? He's not an All-Pro or even all that good, but he's likely gonna go over 1000 yards all 3 seasons he's played, averaging about 40 catches, with 28 total TDs.

1000 yards in a 17-game season isn't all that impressive. Harris averages 3.9 yards per attempt in his career, and most Steeler fans I know think UDFA Jaylen Warren is the better back. Harris has been underwhelming for the 24th overall pick in the draft, in my opinion.

Fair. I'd agree with underwhelming. Just don't equate that to a bust. Not that I'm here to defense any Steelers, so all good :)

I'm watching on ESPN+ and not that I want commercials, but can they really not run actual commercials instead of that dumb ESPN+ graphic 100 times?

Warren is a better back but Najee was absolutely hurt last year (foot) and that impacted him significantly. He's been a solid workhorse but not flashy.
