Thursday Night Football: Chiefs @ Broncos

Leg of Theismann : 10/17/2019 8:25 pm
The Chiefs "in trouble" apparently because they've lost the last 2 games. I wish the Giants were a "troubling" 4-2.

I have to say I find this whole narrative that Erin Andrews just mentioned to be so stupid--the idea that there's now a "blueprint" out there now to beat the Chiefs: keep the ball away from Patrick Mahomes. Like, yeah, no shit, that's been the game plan to beat any great QB/offense in the last 100 years. The team with greater TOP has higher chance of winning, what else is new?

Anyway, rant over. Hope it's a good game. I'm recording the Yankees game for later and finishing some work with TNF in the background, so no Yankees spoilers in this thread please (not sure why there would be but figured I'd throw that in there).
Chiefs D is awful, and giving shit effort to boot.

Why not? Chiefs D sucks and you need as many as possible.

Not in the first quarter with the score 6-0, and Mahomes having a bum ankle.
6 0? Denver missed FG no?  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 10/17/2019 8:39 pm : link
If they went for 2, that's idiotic.
Mahomes has a high ankle sprain on his none plant foot, he's  
Zeke's Alibi : 10/17/2019 8:41 pm : link
fine. There is honestly no reason not to go for it. You can probably convert about 60 percent of the time against this sad ass D.
FWIW...

Diver_Down : 10/17/2019 9:18 pm : link
But for a player that is so important to their team, it is pretty reckless to call the QB sneak. Too many big bodies colliding in a confined space.

The correct call would have just taken the points via FG. It would have been 13 - 6. Reid shouldn't be concerned about a Flacco led offense. It shouldn't be a race to put up tons of points.

BB runs it all the time with Brady, just one of those freak things. Rarely see QBs get hurt on steaks.
Patrick is my fantasy QB.

Lol well I took a round Robin parlay Sunday, and the more I thought about the more I wish I took Broncos, short week gassed D playing at altitude. Broncos will run the ball at will in second half.

True. I never thought about the fact that QB sneak on 4th and short is more dangerous than other downs because a) defense is looking for it, and b) sense of urgency can cause guys to throw themselves at the pile.

Really hope he's okay, obviously for his sake, and then also because my fantasy team Dog Ate Mahomework is otherwise screwed (yes I'm serious lol my friends and I compete to come up with the corniest possible team name each year).

That is true the road team seems to always be screwed in TNF games--unless they're playing the Giants in which case it results in a blowout in the other direction (see 2018).

Especially when he was already gimpy coming into the game to begin with.

Wow wrong again. Color me shocked. Put down the crack pipe kid, 8 sacks and 30-6... Broncos are running at will? Chiefs D is terrible? Gassed D? Maybe football's just not your game. I know, let's have a spelling contest!!!

I think you need some background on the offensive side of the ball to be a great NFL head coach. I know BB played on that side in college and its why I like Salah a lot for the Giants next head coach.
