Well at least Bears won their basement battle last night. Not quite the worst team in the NFL, but another wasted year.

And improved our chances of getting the no. 1 pick again in the process.

Found Redzone bloody annoying. Stop showing the Cowboys Giants, it's a complete massacre. The other 3 games were all good contests.

Niners looked more like their previous selves. Thankfully.

Yes, good win that, mate.

I think Chase Young is going to be a very astute signing, and as we all know, keeping Deebo fit and playing well is massive for us.

I donít follow it closely but isnít he Washingtonís best player? Presume itís because their season isnít gonna end anywhere near play offs that they are getting ready for another new start

Sounds like it mate, yes.

I work with a Washington fan and he was not happy at all about losing Young. I think they got a third round pick included in the deal, or something like that.

He's apparently a bit injury prone, but so far so good.

sounds like Washington arenít expecting to challenge in that division anytime soon if they are flogging the best players

I only pay attention to them because of said co-worker, and the fact that their colours aren't too dissimilar to the Villa, but you're right.

They always narrowly lose to the Eagles, they still need to play the Cowboys twice, too. They got battered by the Bears and Bills, but most of their wins and losses are always tight. Remarkably so, even.

More wins, particularly against the Cowboys, and they'd be in the playoff picture.

Chase Young is potentially very good, but has a scary medical record.

He's missed a lot of games in his career so far and could easily have a career ending one any time (a bit like Odell Beckham).

But for a 3rd Round pick, certainly worth the risk for the 49ers. Could lead them to the Super Bowl.

I noticed the Browns beat the Ravens.
I try to look out for this one as it tends to be a bit spicy due to the Ravens being the original Browns.

I saw that, too.

Both having decent seasons.

Both Burrow and DeShaun Watson out for the season.

Ravens should win the AFC North pretty comfortably.

Had a free period today at work, and so watched the Chiefs Eagles game.

I'm not a fan of either, but can't see any way that these two won't be in the Super Bowl again. I love how both teams go for it, pretty much all the time. Very exciting.

I love my Niners, but Shanahan is far too conservative. We have more talent than anyone I'd argue, but yeah, Shanahan is a bit like Southgate. Only a bit, mind. Sorry Kyle!

The Lions have been amazing, and are the only team I wouldn't begrudge pipping the 49ers to anything, but are a bit suspect on defence.

Eagles definitely their but unconvinced by the Chiefs this year and the AFC in general looks a bit stronger so maybe someone different.

Wow, I didn't think it would happen but the Steelers did just fire their OC mid-season. 

Now we will get to see how much of the issue was him vs Pickett.
