He sacked him 6 times, a team-record.
Correct. I did miss no. 6. The previous team record of five was set by Claude Humphries and Chuck Smith.

The Browns are currently 0-9, losing to the only team so far to have gone 0-16, the Detroit Lions (who did so in 2008). I'm sure this would be an ironic footnote if Cleveland does in fact become the second team to lose all 16 games; what do you think?

I think they beat the Ravens in Week 15 to avoid futility.

As the analysts have noted, they have exactly 1 win so far since passing up the chance for Carson Wentz, who it's clear by now would have made them, if not competitive, then at least respectable.  The repeated draft misfires have killed them more than anything.

Buck Belue on Atlanta’s 680 “The Fan” called it—the Giants pull an upset over Kansas City, 12-9. Elsewhere, Cleveland remains the only o-fer.

I'm making a tentative guess the conference title games will be Pittsburgh-New England and Philadelphia-Minnesota come January.

I'm buying into New Orleans. Right now, I have Eagles, Saints, Steelers, Patriots as the final four. Steelers over Eagles in the Super Bowl (as much as it pains me to say that).

Seattle's playoff hopes take a hit with a 34-31 home loss to Atlanta last night. A botched fake field goal attempt and Blair Walsh's missed FG with :07 left were contributing factors.

The electricity in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta’s 34-20 win against Tampa Bay was said to be virtually non-existent. From what I’ve heard, people aren’t attending to see the game itself, they’re going to socialize on the food courts. I’ll stay with the best seat in the house—section HD, seat 1080.

This has been the main problem with new stadiums; they put so much new stuff in that the game becomes secondary. Look at the new Yankee stadium for the first seven years, its mostly quiet because all the older fans can’t afford tickets and the ones who do go venture to other places, leaving seats empty. I’ve been to Fenway this past summer and it was deafening loud on a single and the stadium wasn’t even full. Hell even Madison Square Garden, which is highly corporate and full of rich folks, gets very loud when the Rangers play. Greed unfortunately trumps sports today.

You got that right. I see Mercedes Benz Stadium as nothing more than Arthur Blank’s big, expensive and bloated toy. There was nothing wrong with the Georgia Dome (rest in pieces).😉

It should probably be asked:  should the Vikings end up the NFC champion, as there's a reasonably good chance of being the case, should the league consider the possibility of moving the Super Bowl's location in the interests of maintaining a neutral site?

The Broncos are on a 7-game losing streak. The last time this happened was in 1967. :fork:

After a 253-yard performance last week, Julio Jones is held to 24 yards on two receptions in Atlanta’s 14-9 loss to the Vikings. No life in the offense, and Matt Bryant shanks a FG, only his second from 40+.
