And as I write that, they've finally woken up and won the game in the last seconds!

But sadly the 49ers will eat them for breakfast next week, as they always do.

I hope you're right mate, but law of averages and all that....

Gutted for the Bills. Damn those Chiefs. They're bloody good, though. That OT rule is garbage.

First time in ages Iíve watched NFL, what a game to pick.
Can we all agree that the OT rules need changing. How can it be weíre still in a situation where a coin toss essentially decides games when both teams are this good.

Give both teams the opportunity to possess the ball, if both score TDís, then switch to playing from the 25 with 3 downs until someone gets a stop. Hell even just play from the 10 with 1 down, itís gotta be fairer than the current rules.
I believe thatís what happens in the college game?

Agree with all of that, Jon.

You could see the reaction of the Chiefs players when they won the toss. They just knew.

Blame the yanks who hate draws. Any other score and the other team has a chance, but they have decided that opening drive Touchdowns are apparently the best way to win and if it happens, well God wanted them to win. The teams vote for it those rules each season. At least they reduced it down from any score first so opening team only had to get within 50 yards of goal.

The Bills don't seem to have much luck in the post-season.

A couple of friends of mine (and big Villa fans) flew up to Tampa to watch the Bucs so they will be pretty gutted after their game.

Overtime rules do stink.   Each team should have a chance to possess the ball.

Yeah, but I think those people who sell those cardboard "D" + a fence won't be doing much business though.

Four very different games but all decided at the death. All exciting and nerve shredding.

As a Pats fan reckon we are going to struggle to top the Bills for quite some time in the AFC East.

Josh Allen did not deserve to be on the losing side there. He couldn't have done any more.

Yeah, prefer lower scoring battles. Bit dull when the Defences might as well not be on the field.

There was plenty of great defence over the weekend. The Rams are ferocious defensively. The Bucs got back into it because of offensive mistakes that almost cost them the game.

Thought the Packers and 49ers played some great defence too.

 Not when defenses are blowing coverage seemingly every other play
