This thread is for discussion of action on the field before, during, and after this weekend's games. You can talk about who you think will win or lose before the games start and last-minute news on Saturday morning. Then during the games, discuss strange plays, great performances, and stupid announcers (of which there are plenty).
Discussion for Sunday night as well as Monday's MNF finale is here.
This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
