Disgustingly bad offense from the Vikes. I've no idea what Zimmer has been thinking this season.

Well the Patriots have a bye, but I can't see them winning a Super Bowl. Not as a strong as in past years.

That said, some interesting marks set today:
The Patriots earned their 13th playoff bye since 2001. ... They scored more than 400 points for the 12th straight season, extending their record. ... The ninth straight playoff bye also extended a record; Dallas and San Francisco (1992-95) and Denver (2012-15) went four straight. ... The ninth straight 11-win season is also a record; Indianapolis had seven from 2003-09. ... Belichick's 16th 11-win season is the most in history (Don Shula had 13).

I'm calling it now. Kansas City Chiefs vs. LA Rams in the Super Bowl. Rams will win.

Yet another year of mediocrity by the Redskins. Fans are asking Dan Snyder to fire Bruce Allen, but the owner likes surrounding himself with incompetent yes men. This team hasn't won 11 games in the last 27 years. Fans should stop going to games until the front office is sorted out, it's not the players, it's the management.
Bit of an asterisk there, they were rolling until Smith exploded

They weren't rolling by any means - they had been pretty lucky to be sitting 6-3 in a confused NFC East where the Cowboys and Eagles hadn't woken up. Losing game manager noodle-arm Smith certainly hurt - but the skins were a 9-7 team at best anyway with a first round loss. Which would have then meant more treading water.

In any event - the fans are speaking out - 29th out of 32 teams in attendance this season, worst "new" stadium ever - to the point they are blocking off swaths of seats with advertising (giving away and discounting tickets as well).

This has been building since Napolea....Snyder took over. Possibly looking at the 10th new head coach in 20 season etc. etc. etc. etc.

But it's never Danny's fault. NEVER.

Weird game, Colts should have been more comfortable, but big errors let the Titans in.

On to the playoffs now, NFC Wildcard round matchups are more mouthwatering, Seahawks at Cowboys & Eagles at Bears.

They can beat the Texans but that'll be it I think.

Agreed, the Colts should have been out of site by the end of the 3rd, but let the Titans back in through a couple of bonehead turnovers, can't play like that in the playoffs.

End up #5 seed and no home field advantage. Pretty sick really.

Not really but it's the other side the problem, 1pm eastern kickoff is a disadvantage and then if end up going to pats it's yet more long travel to massive home field for them.

Have chargers Vs either no/lar as my superbowl bet so bit frustrating 12-4 and all the traveling!

This is particularly glorious. Via Schefter on the Twitter:

"Eagles’ QB Nick Foles has a $1 million incentive if Philadelphia goes to the postseason AND he plays 33 percent of team’s plays. His bruised ribs that prevented him from finishing today’s game now mean he played 32 percent of Eagles’ plays - 1 percent short of $1 million. Ouch."

Probably yes. Mayock will scout for the draft, and Gruden will make the selections.

Until the reports over the weekend I wasn't expecting that.

The 3 Florida NFL teams have had abysmal QB play for years and I think that he could have prospered with a decent QB. Tannehill has alternted between being average and injured for Gase's 3 seasons. And his salary for next season would be $26m if he's retained (which he won't).

Gase will get a job at Denver I reckon.
