Brady-To-Boudin might be second only to Brady-to-Fitzgerald that we wish we could have seen

These are the refs who get a nationally televised holiday game? They are pathetic.

Part of it is that the rules are stupid. I can see the reason why a tipped ball is a defense to PI but is it really that important? Just simplify it. PI is PI. It doesn't need to be that complicated.

"Waah, the tip threw off my timing!" Fucking cry me a river, Ronnie Lott. Keep the game moving.

Jim Caldwell is the only person I've ever seen who can make an animated gif of himself look like a still image.

Bad spot, but questionable challenge given how rarely they reverse on that situation

With all the shitty officiating in the NFL, the challenge rule should change. Give coaches two or three strikes and they're out of challenges, but don't limit their correct challenges. Don't penalize the teams for bad officiating.

WTF, that is not the proper call. It's only supposed to run the clock when you go backwards out of bounds voluntarily.

How did they miss the block in the back in the backfield on the reverse?

Clock being wound after delay of game is stupid. Vikings took a minute and 10 seconds off the clock with one run and a penalty.

So, if you were backed up to your one yard line, say second and 30 at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Say you're ahead by 20. You run the ball. I think you could take delay of games continuously with half the distance until the two minute warning before the penalty stopped the clock. Or until your opponent called a time out.

espn: Since 2008, eight teams have trailed in the fourth quarter in each of their first 11 games of a season. The 2016 Lions are 6-4 (.600) pending today's result. The other seven teams were a combined 4-73 (.052) through 11 games.
