besides watching the Pats clinch HFA I will be watching the Bills and related games. It’s been a long drought for them and I have a lot of Bills fan-friends.

To recap, they need to win (which I think they do) first and either
Ravens lose (extreme long shot) or
Chargers lose (long shot) AND Titans lose (realistic)

Don’t know if I’d bank on TEN losing. JAX doesn’t really have anything to play for plus TEN has Jacksonville’s number.

Just saying it’s the most realistic of the three (Ravens / Chargers / Titans)

I would bank on it. I have a feeling Jax doesn't want to go into the playoffs with a two game losing streak and Tenn is not good.

Pitt is sitting Ben and Bell. I guess it makes sense b/c I just can't see the Pats losing. And they are playing Cleveland anyway. What a great franchise Cleveland is.

How can you go wrong with a crook owner who takes draft advice from hobos?
 
After I finish presenting the Steelers-Browns postgame show, I'm driving back up to Scotland from Leeds - I bought 10 GB of extra data to be able to watch (mostly listen to) the late games in my car while I'm driving. If I literally crash and burn along the way, it's more likely that the Falcons will have made me do it than that it'll be a simple accident. Although that said, don't sleep on the Cardinals - I almost have more faith in their ability to win in Seattle than I do in the Falcons ability to win at home against Carolina.

You can sleep on the Cards, man. You can sleep very deeply on the Cards.

Just you wait...an even worse Cards team beat a better Seahawks team last year in Week 16 to help the Falcons gain the 2 seed, and it wouldn't surprise me at all to see them help the Falcons get the 6 seed this year. (I mean, Seattle has been terrible a lot of the time this season.)

Pitt kicking a FG. Cleveland offsides, giving Pitt a first down. You have to fire the entire team.

Adams for the Giants just dropped a pass that was right in his hands. In the end zone. It's not that he dropped it, it's that the way he reached for the ball indicates he's never caught a football in his life. That was weird.

Mad genius stuff there by Hue Jackson.

Man, Hanson really is one of the best announcers in the sport, isn't he? Forget how complicated his job is, I just like his announcing style. Yeah, he gets 50% crazy exciting plays instead of, whatever, 10% of a usual game, so there's a lot more vocal inflection. But I just think he does a great job keeping all the stories straight and telling them quickly and effectively.

Hanson is excellent at his job, without a doubt. He's engaging, somewhat funny, and always on.

What a clunker from Kirk Cousins. 3 INT, 4.3 y/att against a 2-13 team. I wonder how much that's going to cost him in FA this year.

Are Jags and Chiefs locked at 3 and 4 seeds regardless of outcomes in the games today?

49ers get a FG. Jimmy hit a wide-open Kittle for like 40 yard catch and run (the defender seem to fall down) and then the Rams defense held.
This 49ers team always seems to get some points now - just need to start converting some of the FGs to TDs and they will be in business.
