There were four  NFL teams from 'warmer weather states' (Texas, Florida and California) - specifically - Houston, San Fran, Miami and the LA Rams that ventured 'into the elements' last weekend.

0 for 4 and average score under 10 points per game


Raiders in similar situation Thursday night

The high for Thursday in KC is @ 27, which means come game time, it's probably @ 15-20.

According to 'Ticket IQ" tickets for the Jets/Colts Monday nighter were damn close to given away to get people in the building to avoid embarrassment [the embarrassment came on the field]

$5 for upper level, $20 for lower level

How dumb were the Niners?  They practiced  all week in sunny Florida and flew to snowy  Chicago.

Come in Benlen, Chip was giving the Niners a little Florida vacation in celebration of the great year they are having.


RG3 to start for the Browns this Sunday. Always thought it was funny how the Redskins immediately improved the minute they decided to park his ass on the bench.

What happened to the Vikings after that 5-0 start?

Injuries.

Teddy Bridgewater was already out for the season and probably some of next.

Adrian Peterson has been effectively lost for the season.

Sharif Floyd has been effectively lost for the season.

There have been missed games all over the secondary.

Then there is the offensive line.

Both starting tackles were lost for the season. A replacement starter has since been lost for the season as well. The Vikings have started six tackles in 2016. There have been other injuries on the line and I believe the Vikes had a game in which only one of the five recognized starters was on the field. The subs have been below NFL standard which has meant no holes for McKinnon and Asiata while Sam Bradford, who needs the time, has had no chance at getting protection while in the pocket.

Last season the Vikings went 11-5 and won the NFC North. The five starting offensive linemen played every game.

Here is something to think about. The last time the Packers lost a game in December at Lambeau Field with Aaron Rodgers at QB was December 7, 2008 to the Texans. A December 22, 2013 loss to the Steelers came with Rodgers out injured and Matt Flynn in his place. A week 17 home loss to the Vikings last season came on January 3, 2016.

The Packers need that game like blood.

KC is one of those under the radar teams. 20-4 in last 24 games. Noodle arm Alex Smith is 8-1 versus Raiders while with Chiefs.

I am thinking that Noodle Arm's yards-per-pass is better than Kaepernicks. Half the premise of starting Kaepernick and dealing Smith was all of this extra 'explosiveness' that Kaepernick was going to give the offense.

Kaepernick yards per pass is 6.8 Alex Smith is 6.9 so you are right. The difference  is Kaepernick tries to complete a pass 15 yds down  the field. Smith completes a 2 yd pass and the receiver runs for 13 yds. Smith will always have a noodle arm.

Smith 21 for 25, 270 yards vs Atlanta

Maybe he's figuring it all out after all these years
