Diggs has never been simply a deep ball threat. Wtf is Buck talking about?
I have no idea, apparently he was catching 60-100 balls a year in Minny by ‘running deep routes.’ He wasn’t Bethel Johnson, for crying out loud.

Typical announcer move, relating an unattributed production note (which might be bullshit he made up, the staff wrote down for him, or something a coach told him that he misconstrued or passed along without scrutiny) as his own observation, and with AUTHORITY at that. Tessitore constantly did this as well during his tenure at MNF.

That was definitely something prepped by/ for Buck

So they just showed a pic of Mike Pereira's 100 year old dad and Buck said something like "He's definitely brought the better half to the Pereira couple" or something. Isn't that a shot at his wife? Did I mishear that?

Torn on who to cheer for here. Buffalo is leading the division, but KC is a legitimate threat to the Patriots dynasty.

It was his father-in-law.

An October loss to Buffalo isn't changing anything long term for Kansas City. I'll take a 2nd loss for Buffalo.

This is ridiculous.

They've won //1// Championship with this current group.

They've had 2 1/2 years of good-great performance.

Wait till they get to 4 before we call them a legitimate threat.

This is comical to read, but so true..........."I'll consider them a threat to the Patriots dynasty once they win three more Super Bowls"....................what the Patriots were able to do for the last 20 years is just incredible, you could almost argue there were two mini dynasties within one large one.............3 out of 4 on the front end, 3 out of 6 on the back end.

Should have been 4 out of 6 on both the front and back ends, but still, I'll take what the accomplished for sure.

Holy smokes.

Some of you have really forgotten how incredibly hard it is to build a dynasty and the great teams/QBs who have achieved success but ultimately failed at creating a true dynasty.

Once you win that first one, it gets a lot harder.

Buffalo is 4-2 but has a -12 point differential. Not sure they are as good as some people think they are. The defense has been gashed.

I liked Witten's reminder on tight ends: "Among the strong guys, you're the weakest. Among the fast guys, you're the slowest."

How long has it been since the Patriots had a receiver who could have made that play?
