    With 8 seconds left....there was zero reason to have the cornerback chasing back to the receiver. They should have had someone waiting back there.

    a catch over the middle basically wasn’t an option. His only option was a deep pass toward the sideline....and the Chargers are chasing down the receiver???

    It wasn’t much more than a Hail Mary....except the receiver got past the defenders. No excuse.

    Perhaps the Chargers shortcomings, are reflected in their over all record. :cool:

    I've got Night at 3-1 with the underdog Purple People Eaters going tonight. He's quietly pulling away in the season-to-date standings. Nice going.

    ESPN has an 'Playoff Machine' where you can project records and seedings with actual tiebreakers. I played around with the AFC and here is what I project.

    Note- Don't dismiss due to my lousy against the spread selections!

    upload_2019-12-2_15-55-25.png
    Browns 8-8......Go 3-1 (lose BAL)
    Titans 8-8......Go 1-3 (lose HOU, NO, @ HOU)

    The wildcard race will certainly go down to the wire.

    The Patriots will NOT win out. I'm not sure what happened to them, but it pretty much started when they went out and got that guy, that had changed his name to Mohammad. IMO, they were asking for trouble. :cool: To be fair, I would not go after anybody that changed their name to Jesus either. :)

    You know what guys, I may be out there towards the top but I'm not the one that needs to be feared. I've already peaked in the month of November and unlikely to better that record in December. Nor have I broken away far enough to outlast the Peleton.

    The one that needs to be watched is HornHiYo. Yep, I said it. He's about to pour the acid on in December.

    Of course bases loaded is still out there in front with the best percentage and that may even hold in the end. Strap yourselves in.

    I think what happened is I may have stumbled onto the brand of eggs YaYa ate when he had his 5-0 days. I had a huge portion of them just before I made the choices for week 13 and I'm hoping they do the trick for me this week too. If not there is a few more brands I can try. :)

    Just a little food for thought.

    Vegas Domination sports picks aka Dom the Dominator of DI fame....charging some $150/month for his NFL picks....is 41-48 (.460) from beginning of season until now.

    He has a running count on all his sports picks claiming a 58% win rate....which I’m calling a bit skeptical. I can only track what’s listed. NFL is .460.

    let’s not forget....he claims all Vegas sports books fear him, loathe him, are on the look out for him and don’t want his action. You be the judge.

    His last “feared pick” was Seahawks/Vikings under

    At $100 per game.....you’re down around $1,100 plus the $600 for the “privilege” of getting these selections.

    Red to the tune of about $1,700....so far. I thought the whole point was to make money off their picks. Now I have to go see Frank “Frankie Cheech” DeCicco for a short term loan to cover my rent.

    Gimme me bases loaded or Night Attacks picks. Those are free too....well, for now.
