Exciting football Jags 6 Colts 0

Bluesbreaker : 12/3/2018 9:34 pm
There has been many a boring game in the NFL but this
may top them all .
There was only two plays of 20 yards or more a
20 Yard reception for Eric Ebron
And a 23 yard reception for Dede Westbrook which was the
longest play of the game . It gets better
there were zero Kick off returns
and 3 punt returns
Chester Rogers had two one went for 9 yards the other for 4 yards Rashad Greene had one return for 8 yards .

Has there ever been a more anemic game than this .

Imagine paying to actually watch this Garbage !

think there was a game years ago when the Jets beat the Redskins 3-0. But how about the Gus Frerrotte "head butt" game? 7-7 after OT.
Remember that Monday night game some years ago

between the Steelers and Dolphins? It poured, and the field was complete slop.

I think it was 0-0 at the 2-minute warning. Seriously.

I wanted it to end a 0-0 tie so badly. Alas, the Steelers kicked a field goal.
Screw this game

I was one of four surviving entries at week 13, with about 350 original entries at week 1 for a survivor pick-em league (straight win-loss without spreads being used). I picked the Colts to win over the Jags.

I won good money as the 4th place team, but seriously, Luck went into this game having 3 or more TD's in the last five or six games and Jacksonville came in with a seven game losing streak. Really tough way to lose after making it through 12 weeks of the perennial volatility of any given NFL season.

Yes the jags backup qb sucked but the Jags D actually played a great game against a team that had averaged 34 points per game the prior 6 weeks

Would have been even more dominating without some stupid penalties in the 2nd quarter.

Sorry this bored you though -- unlike some of these 38-35 games where guys roam free and anybody covered gets PI and spot foul
People complain...  
Chris in Philly : 12/3/2018 10:46 pm : link
about that epic Chiefs-Rams game. "Bah, teams can't play defense." People complain about a 6-0 game. "Bah, teams can't play offense."

Some people are never happy....
Let's hope the Colts offense has the same success against the Giants

0-0 because of crazy weather is one thing but damn
I guess the two FG's must have been epic .
I mean these are pros I have no idea what a ticket
cost for that game but what the heck was there to cheer
about I am sure they did the wave a few times just to stretch
I do vaguely remember the 3-3 tie
And the Gus Frerotte idiocy .
It just seems crazy having a game with out a Kick Return
even . I always though the kickoff was one of the best parts
of the game . NFL is going downhill fast IMO
If they expand globally fuck it I am done
Actually

I just checked out the Box score and wanted to see what the heck happened that the Colts got Blanked by a Jags team
that lost its direction knowing we play the Colts soon .
The big momment in the game was when

Correct.

Inept football that is low scoring is what we don't want to see. You know a bad game when you see it because at the half or end of the game, you are saying to yourself "That shit just set football back 50 years."

The one game that stands out to me was the NFC Championship Game between the Rams and Buccaneers I believe in 2000.

Final score was 11-6. But anyone who watched that game knew the reason why the score was such was because the Tampa defense was amazing, suffocating the legendary St. Louis offense that day. Tampa was not an offensive team, but even the Rams defense (who wasn't so great), had some good plays too.

The only TD for the Rams was on a crazy pass the receiver caught. Maybe Tampa gets the W at the end if the referees call that play a catch instead of incomplete, which brought back instant replay.

There was also a game between the Patriots and Steelers a few years before this in the Divisional Playoffs where the final was 7-6 for Pittsburgh. Both teams were heavyweights with a lot of talent on both sides. I was in grade school then, but that game also stuck out to me as tremendous.
I was at the 7-7 tie

in DC - Giants vs Redskins. I still want my money back.
low scoring doesn't have to mean boring  
Matt in SGS : 12/4/2018 11:27 am : link
the Giants 1990 loss at San Francisco 7-3 when both were 10-1 was exciting football, with tough defense and every yard counting. Neither team giving an inch. Same with the 15-13 win in the NFC Championship game.

I remember after the NFC Championship game, Madden and Summerall were dong the recap and they were talking about the 7-3 game earlier, and Madden was recounting a discussion with Belichick and Little Bill was responding people saying that the score was low so the Niners were playing conservatively. Belichick told Madden "conservative, that's baloney, they weren't running dives in there".

I remember going to a game against Seattle that the Giants won 9-6 and featured Jeff Feagles getting like 4 punts inside the 10 for the Seahawks. That game was boring.

99/00 Rams/Bucs NFCC game was a great game. That was the Bert Emanuel game. That Bucs D against the Greatest Show on Turf was an awesome matchup.

Shaun King against the Rams defense wasn't quite as exciting - but I still remember that game well.

One of my favorite low scoring games was the Seattle-Minnesota playoff game a few years back. I think the score was 10-9.

I did also enjoy the Dallas-Giants game on Sunday Night in 2016, which was 10-7.
