Someone want to explain to me why the Patriots are the only mutherfuckin team in the league that doesn't get flagged for leading with their heads? Even when our qb who is just back from a concussion was sliding and still lead with the head into his. One quarter in and I haven't seen a single one of those lazy pos raise their arms from their sides yet. Are there any redeeming Patriot players?
I'm watching the Chiefs because I just like Smith's cadence. It's terrifying, but I love listening to it.
Lest anyone who didn't watch the Browns/Pats game think that the Browns pissed it away, there were at least 5 phantom calls/noncalls that gave the game to the Patriots. I am definitely not one to ref complain, but it was blatant and infuriating.
Montana, I watched that game and I'm totally pissed. That pass interference against the Browns in the last minute of the game was ridiculous and should not have been called. The Browns should have won that. I seriously think that the NFL has some kind of deal with the Patriots to help get them to the Superbowl, starting with the Tuck rule, slap on the wrist for Spygate, the refs calling or not calling penalties to help them. I hate the Patriots with a passion.
Glad I wasn't the only one that saw it. Starting with the calling Gronk's injury play a catch (esp in comparison with the earlier incomplete catch on the Browns for not maintaining comtrol 10 yds out of bounds through the yard marker), then the phantom intentional grounding call when Campbell was 6 yds out of the box, the phantom shoulder to shoulder hit in the endzone called unecassary roughness or whatever that stupid receiver rule is, and then the non pass interference, the non intentional grounding calls on princess, it was just an officiating gimme.
That intentional grounding on Campbell was ridiculous. He was out of the pocket. My dog could have done a better job officiating that game. The refs handed that game to those jackass Patriots.
I'm so pissed that the pats won. Wtf? I am however surprised and happy that Miami pulled it off in that weather.
See, Whores, we are good for something. Love, Florida
Shellee I do love you, but did love watching the Steelers last ditch attempt at a touchdown. Kudos for effort - it looked amazing, even if the guy went out of bounds.
More importantly - nice to see Peyton WIN IN THE COLD!!
Eta: don't get me started on the Pats. That was the Browns game.

My housemate who has never seen a game before saw that, I was like - that never happens! What a great moment to catch. I let her pick which 1pm kick-off game to watch as my boys weren't on until later and she picked the Dolphins as "they are my favourite animal", haha. So it was a good shout on her behalf, despite dodgy logic.
My Snowflake likes the Seahawks (actually just Wilson!) as his "second team" but we both wanted them to get beat yesterday. Of course, Snowflake says "I just wish it wasn't that douchebag Kaepernick"...
The Patriots can't really complain much about the officials anymore this season.
New England was ticked about a non-call on Luke Kuechly on the last play of Carolina's victory a few weeks ago. The Patriots got away with a clear holding on their game-winning touchdown against New Orleans early in the season, but they did have a point with the non-call on the Panthers.
But now, it has more than evened out.
For some reason, the officials at the end of the Browns-Patriots game decided to give New England the win. That's effectively what happened when they decided to call a pass interference on Browns cornerback Leon McFadden, even though McFadden didn't do anything to Patriots receiver Josh Boyce to deserve a penalty.
By throwing the flag there, with the Browns holding a 26-21 lead in the final minute, the officials decided the game. The Patriots got the ball at the 1-yard line, and the next play they scored the game-winning touchdown. The officials have to understand that call determines the game. Even worse, what McFadden did shouldn't be a pass interference call on the first drive of the game, much less the final minute. If you call that level of contact on a NFL defensive back, every play would end up with a penalty.
Don't believe me? Mike Pereira, the NFL's former vice president of officiating, criticized the officials on FoxSports.com and in the article titled "No, that definitely was not pass interference," said that the call was wrong.
"McFadden and Boyce were hand-fighting down the field," Pereira wrote. "There was not enough contact for defensive pass interference to be called."It was the wrong call, and it has a huge impact on the playoff picture. The Bengals would have taken over the No. 2 seed for the time being with a Patriots loss. The Broncos would have widened their lead for the AFC's top seed to two games with three to go. The Dolphins would have had an outside shot to catch the Patriots in the AFC East.
But no, the officials decided the Patriots deserved a break. So there was a phantom call to gift wrap a touchdown and a win. Merry Christmas, New England.
Kill everything... that IS the solution!

Yes, it was a joke. It's at least SOMETHING that it isn't being brushed over. It was complete and utter bullshit and today Browns fans should be celebrating and heartily posting Brady bitch crying gifs. I feel robbed, never mind Cleveland.
I forgot to mention in my early morning post that Matt Prater did an awesome job with his 64 yard kick. I loved him and Colquitt's reaction, and all the players running on the field, even Peyton pumping his fist. I like to think my boys have a good atmosphere in the locker room (unlike the Pats).
