I think they should do away with coin flips. Visitors get the option to begin the game; home team gets the option to start the second half.
I haven't really thought this through, so I'm not sure what to do about OT
Yeah, seems a bit silly, but the NFL loves these ceremonial things in big games. I guess you could imagine one or two games a year where direction is more important than possession, where it might matter?

Love Harbaugh going for 2 up 7, to make it a 2-score game.

edit: ew I wish I didn't write the words "love" and "Harbaugh" together

Rooting for playoff seeing Week 1 seems like the maneuver of an insane person.
In NFC versus AFC? I mean, that’s a no brainer. In the middle of December there will be multiple teams tracking for 9, 10 or 11 wins. This is literally what it comes down to.

You wish. Pats are unlikely to make the playoffs, but if the stars align it will be because second tier AFC teams lose to NFC teams.
sorry this comment came in late and I already reserved you a seat. Thank you for your service in rooting for the Birds today to beat an AFC team @4:25

I think I will stand, if it’s ok, I hear you get syphilis from the seat covers on that wagon.

Wait.. who just said they thought Taysom Hill is one of the best football players ever? That's... insane.

Ross Tucker I think?

Watson just tried to load and fire one on the run…. And threw a duck about 15 yards short of the receiver right to the defender…

I thought the Ravens might go for 2 again to make it a 3-score game.

edit: Danooo get out of my head :)

The Commies and the Steelers came into the year with some hype. Not great.

Watson's pass was tipped. That makes more sense. Still a poor pass.

ARZ-WAS just showed the exact same angle of water dripping off the crossbar to show how much rain there is that CIN-CLE showed earlier for the same reason. Like, exactly the same. I guess they train on that.
