Whether it's until this Monday/Tuesday or indefinitely has yet to be determined.

The reason for the league pushing it back is due to the QB of the Pats testing positive, and members of the Kansas City Chiefs also testing positive

John Kincade (CBS Sports radio): "The Falcons tested positive of choking."

The Patriots vs Chiefs game will be played tomorrow night at 7, as long as there are no more positive test results. Falcons vs Packers has been moved up to an 8:50pm start time.

Wow, Jaylon Smith pulled a Leon Lett as the Cleveland Browns who were going for the extra point, scored two points on the Cowboys blunder. All in all the Browns won over the Cowboys 49-38, but he's going to have to watch the film and also look back at Thanksgiving 1993.

I think that team will have to look at more than Turkey Day 1993 and Leon Lett 2.0 in order to survive what appears to be an NFC East division nobody wants to win

The NFC Least is going to come down to who wins the head to heads in the division. They obviously can't best teams outside the division.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

The Eagles beat the 49ers 25-20, giving them a 1-2-1 record and 1st place(!) in the NFC East.

Meaning if they can finally get healthy, there is opportunity for them.  They've overcome more dire situations than this before in the last few years, after all.

What fans at this point? With how the season has gone it somehow surprises me that people still watch, but you always have those who are faithful/don't read the internet so who knows

The NFL is now enforcing stricter coronavirus guidelines in light of the recent schedule shuffling and the Raiders hosting a charity event without masks. Teams can now be forced to forfeit their games if they don't comply.

That would be unprecedented if it came to that: a team forfeiting a game

After starting the season 0-4, the Houston Texans have fired coach and general manager Bill O'Brien who was with the organization for six seasons and had four AFC South division titles. As for O'Brien's successor, associate head coach Romeo Crennel is taking over as interim head coach for the Texans.

There are 4 4-0 teams 1/4 of the way into the season. Those teams are the Bills, Seahawks, Chiefs, and Packers. The quarterbacks of those 4 teams, Josh Allen, Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, and Aaron Rodgers are the MVP candidates at this point with Wilson being the leader of that race right now.

Meanwhile, with the Falcons 0-4, is Dan Quinn about to get the Bill O Brien treatment?

I don't think so.  I'd say no for now; possibly next week at the very earliest.  They have a game on Sunday.  It could go either way, but really, it looks like Atlanta could end up 2-14.  OTOH, it could be 4, 5, or 6 wins.  I'm not sure Arthur Blank will kick out Dan Quinn, who's under contract through 2022.  Plus, the teams they've lost to are a combined 12-4 including two undefeated teams.  In addition, they are dealing with a ton of injuries.  At least they didn't blow a lead tonight!


Could've been five teams at 5-0 had it not been for the Tennessee outbreak.  I can see Rodgers passing Wilson for league MVP.  Kansas City & Buffalo might be playing for the best in the AFC.  Allen might need to win that game and conquer New England.  KC is a complete team, possibly more complete than Baltimore was a year ago.  Finally, Rodgers is playing with less, though their defense is much better than Seattle's


I think, if anything, Brian Hoyer will be looking for work before Dan Quinn
