Small sample size, but the Jags beat the Chargers 38-10 and the Colts (who just beat the Chiefs) the week before, 24-0.  Most of us probably don't pay attention to Jacksonville, but maybe now is a good time to start doing so.

Yeah, but week one is always a crap shoot because starters no longer play in the preseason.

/'fer instance, Green Bay lost by a total of 61-10 in the last two year's week one games.
//If you play in any survivor/knockout pools, week one is always the hardest to predict.

Yep.

I hate it actually. I'd rather go back to the 4/16 schedule.

Eagles vs Jags is somehow a top matchup for this weekend, and it's funny because no matter who wins it will still be the same questions asked. "Ok, but are they for real?"

Maybe, but there are no panels of coaches/"experts" voting who gets into the playoffs.  That loss could mean A LOT come December.

They will ask that of the Eagles until they beat the Cowboys... They will ask that of the Jags allllllllllllllllll year.

I think Eagles are for real. I thought they would be good. Best in NFC East at least (I'm assuming some smoke and mirrors involved in NY)

Their wins were against two AFC opponents, one of whom is in their conference.  Those wins are more important than their loss to the Commanders.

Winning one's division is the easiest route to the playoffs.

Before tonight's game, the Jags are alone at the top of their division, while the Commanders are alone at the bottom of theirs.

Chiefs starters played some. They looked good week 1.

And they lost Slater so they get more of Storm Norman getting his lunch money stolen out there every week.

Does watching COPS count?

What the hell was Herbert doing in this game in the 4th?  He's hurt and they're down by 3-4 scores.

Coach didn't want to hurt his feelings by pulling him from the game.

With the list of injuries they've racked up so far, they'll be very lucky to get anywhere near the 7th seed. Allen, Bosa, Jackson, Slater, Guyton (torn ACL yesterday), Linsley, and Herbert? That's six guys from the NFL Top 100 list for 2021 and their only speed receiver.

Carnage. Shades of Baltimore last season.

It also doesn't help the Chargers medical staff got appear to have earned their MDs from the Hollywood Upstairs Medical School.

I just saw the piece on PFT about Nornan sliding in for Slater and after Crosby absolutely pantsed him last year I feel like Crosby should have got him at least an overpriced watch to say thanks for getting me a big arse extension.

Yep.

I hate it actually. I'd rather go back to the 4/16 schedule.


And the 12-team playoffs, too (4 division winners and 2 wildcards per conference).

The only tweaks they should've ever thought about were:

16 games across 18 weeks, with each team having 2 bye weeks (the bye weeks wouldn't be in the first 3 and last 3 weeks of the season).

With the possible exception of Thanksgiving, no Thursday games.

I always liked going back to two bye weeks and 16 games, but I have thought if they were going to do so one of the byes should preceed a Thursday Night game (except week 1's TNF game) . Keep them around and make each team play a single TNF game each season (again, preceeded by a bye), maybe don't play TNF in weeks 2, 3, 17, or 18, but then have the multiple Thanksgiving Day games. It should work out. No byes in weeks 1, 2, 17, or 18, either.
