Yep. Not sure why they can't provide a BIT more balance. Make 1pm the beast, but maybe 8 and 5?
8 and 5 is definitely a much better balance. I would support that but the NFL wants the 4pm games to be National ones. There is obviously a ratings reasons for this but as a fan, it is a drag when it's a 10 and 3 schedule.

Tyrod is snakebitten. He might have been better than Flacco in Baltimore near the end. Buffalo didn’t want to pay him. Got a quick hook for Baker in Cleveland. Now injured between warmups and kickoff.

No.

A young QB is going to make the occasional bad read. As long as Allen continues to make progress, I’m not too worried about that. But I don’t know how realistic it is to expect a 3rd-year pro to improve his throwing fundamentals, and that seems to be Allen’s problem — the ball simply doesn’t go where he wants to put it sometimes.

Edit: Looking at the numbers, maybe I’m being too hard on the kid. But man, he’s made a few bad throws (off target, not bad decision). I mean, even the long TD today was 5-10 yards underthrown — made a great read and quick decision, but very nearly screwed up the execution.

58!

Game is over if he misses that.
Game over? It's the Chiefs, the game isn't over until there is 0 seconds on the clock. Obviously they aren't moving the ball well, but they weren't against the Niners in the SB and then it all changed.

Not counting the butt fumble and that bizarre Colts fake punt that may be the worst play I have ever seen. Pass on a first down up by 8 close to FG range to throw into double coverage.
