    Wow! Two Thursday night games in a row where the contest is decided by game winning drives in the last two minutes. This time Washington got a huge break when Hopkins missed the field goal to win it only for the play to be retaken five yards closer to the sticks when the Giants were unforgivably offside.

    Dexter Lawrence deserves a massive fine for that.

    Looks like Mahomes might actually be a mortal human being then.

    Jimmy Garoppolo; Memo to self, don't give Aaron Rodgers 35 seconds to win the game..

    LA Chargers look very good with Matt Stafford at the helm. Great defence, more than capable offence, they could be a threat again this year. As for Brady, he needs another 68 yards to overtake Drew Brees and have the most passing yards in the NFL. He'll achieve that next week....in New England. I wonder how the fans will greet him?

    LA Rams.

    Some really exciting football last night though. Tucker's kick and Agnew's 109 yard FG return steal the headlines, but Herbert and the Chargers were brilliant against the Chiefs.

    Oops! Yes, the Rams. Stadium looks superb as well as their defence. I hear Andy Reid was taken ill after the Chiefs game. He doesn't come across as the fittest bloke but I hear he's in a stable condition..

    To be fair Patrick Mahomes throwing 2 interceptions could probably give even the healthiest of people a heart attack.

    Glad he seems to be stable.

    Handled an easy start to the season the way they should. Broncos 3-0 in emphatic fashion with a shutout of the Jets. This defense does not like rookie QBs. Tough stretch upcoming which will be the real test of the depth. Jeudy, Hamler, Jewell, and Chubb being out hasn't haunted us... yet.

    Mac Jones to throw under 263.5 yards is $1.88. That's free money that is..

    It was not free money.

    Great game. Mac looks quite the acquisition and the team as a whole will get better as the season goes. I did actually win a few $$ in the end as I had TB12 to run for more than half a yard at $2.10

    Has there just been a power shift in the AFC?

    Wouldn't go that far, but KC have left themselves a lot to do. AFC West is tough.

    I wouldn't mind Bills finally getting that Superbowl, although not at the expense of TB if we get there (our secondary suggests we won't).

    I'm old enough to remember the Bills of old, one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the early 90s alongside the 9ers and Dallas, (although the Cowboys were more ruthless than entertaining). Scott Norwood's 'wide right', Thurman forgetting his helmet, Frank Reich's comeback of the century (which I think is still a record) and those four Superbowl losses.

    I wouldn't write the Chiefs off just yet either, but Mahomes and his team were poor on Sunday and that defence is allowing a shitload of points every game.

    I've had a mutli on Lamar for today game; Baltimore to win, Lamar to rush for more than 63 yards and score a TD. It's free money isn't it?

    Bills loaing over and over is when I got into NFL. They wete just horribly unlucky to peak at the same time as undeniably the strongeat division of all time (late 80s to mid 90s NFC East), plus a very strong 49ers team. Nobosy in the AFC had a chance versus those teams.

    Well entering the 4th quarter I didn’t think for one a second the Ravens were going to win that one…

    Another classic and we've had a few already this season. I had Lamar to rush for 63 yards or more and score a TD and what does he do? Runs for 62 yards and fumbles the ball on the 1 yard line!!! I had Baltimore to win in a multi and that dropped ball lost me about $40..

    I'm not bitter. Unlike John Gruden, who's bitter and racist as well as other things..

    I had Jackson 100 yards & 1 TD, so that was a waste.

    Made a decent return on Mayfield & Herbert to combine for 600+ yards and 6+ TDS.

    I’m no expert but I still maintain Herbert was the best QB in his draft.

    He’s looking the part isn’t he? Was really impressed with Trubinsky as well. I know he’s not a rookie but he looked a different player from his days as a Bear. If the kicker had have been fit Lamar wouldn’t have got that chance and we’d be talking about how good Indi are looking..
