One hour from the early Sunday kickoffs. Will be watching the Broncos/Bengals game with interest to see how Denver, and Simien, in particular, play on the road.

Jets-Chiefs is my most interesting game - have a feeling this could be a key wild card tie breaker down the line

I feel like Minny could surprise today. Their defense is legit, and Peterson's absence lets them run a more conventional offense. Either way, I'm happy taking the +7.5 points Bovada is handing out.

I'm going to do BB a favor and do some advance scouting of the Bills vs. Arizona. Looking forward to watching them get crushed, hopefully Fitz puts up 4 TDs on em and Rex gets fired before he gets home.

I see 'Sota used sometimes.
Seriously? Next time you see this, could you please kick the person using it directly in the junk?
I'm going to start referring to Massachusetts as "Massy" and see how you like it. You won't. You won't like it AT ALL.
That would indeed suck. But it would be less annoying than 'Chusetts.

First throw of the game Siemian missed the open receiver on a ten yard out by roughly 7 yards

Nobody calls Minnesota (or Minneapolis, while we're at it) "Minny". I see 'Sota used sometimes. Or simply Minn. For the city, it's MPLS, or collectively with St. Paul as the Twin Cities, the Cities, MSP, or just TC if you're into the whole brevity thing. I like MPLS. Prince did too, which is good enough for me.

Lol, point taken. If I can learn how to pronounce Oregon and Nevada correctly, I can probably stand to call Minnesota the right way.

I'll seek to purify myself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.

Fox sideline reporter just gushing pregame about how the Bills players love their new, simplified offense. It's just going to free them up to go out and play.

First series: 1 yd completion to McCoy, false start, 2 yd screen pass, and Taylor takes a 10 yard sack on 3rd and 12.

36 hours of labor? What the fuck. Also Siemian apparently did poorly on the first drive cause the kick returner brought the ball out of the endzone.

So, they are improving!

Some interesting plays run by Terrelle Pryor. It works when he doesn't throw much. Nearly got intercepted on the 3rd play.

Refs screwed up a false start by not blowing the whistle until after Defense hit the QB. Called a PF for the QB hit, gave Denver 10 yard gain instead of 5 yard loss on 3rd.

And now instead of a FG get first and goal on an illegal contact call for contact inside 5 yards. Even Fouts thought it was bad.

It's Ore gun, not Ore gone like we said in New England. But Nevada? Google and YouTube like Nev add a, but I think I hear more Nev ah da in California.

ARI looks like they're sleepwalking. Bills run to the line to get a play off just to prevent a challenge, dive Shady right up the middle and he takes it 30 yards to the house.

I'm trying to think of a historical comp for Blake Bortles---good numbers, kind of looks like a real QB when you watch, yet manages to blow it in the end constantly.

Kind of a JV Dan Fouts? I know not as good. Matt Stafford good comp of current QBs.

I don't see what wasn't there to overturn that call. Jones' knee on the ground and the moment the ball is hit loose is clear. I get why they didn't overturn last week because there wasn't a clear view of the ball coming loose when Harrison's knee hit the ball and knocked it free from Boyd. The replay official would have had to presume it was knocked free by his knee without video evidence. This case with Jones though is confusing. Not sure what evidence they needed. A blood sample?

Great INT by Patrick Peterson. Of course it was 3rd and 22 and now they have the ball on the 4 yard line as opposed to just knocking it down and making Bills punt.

I can't tell what happens first. I think knee is down but I watched it about 10 times and can't tell for sure. When it's that close, it almost always stands as called on the field.
