What’s the point of drafting Dillon if you’re not going to use him at the 1 yard line.

One game in but looks like the Jordan Love pick lit a fire under Rodgers’ @$$.

I think it’s more the second year in this system.

Mitch must be amazing in practice and Foles terrible in practice.

Regardless, mitch doesn't have it on game days. Bring in Foles next week.

Carolina had 4th and inches down a score under two minutes and decide not to hand it off to Christian McCaffery.

The MVP of the Chicago Bears today was the Detroit Lions receiver who dropped a sure touchdown with five seconds left in the game.

I mean, you had good Mitch and Bad Mitch on display for the world to see today. Good Mitch in the fourth quarter is why Trubisky started over Foles. Bad Mitch in the first three quarters, along with the Bears’ inability to score meaningfully from the Red Zone was why the Lions almost snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

Someone needs to tell both of these teams you gotta play 60 to win. The Bears got lucky but against Green Bay or New Orleans, they’ll get carved up like a prime rib on Saturday night.

Packers need to work on their 'we're up three scores with 3:19 to go' defense. Other than that....

Ugh.

It was even worse than it seems because they actually had used the FB to convert a 4th down earlier in the game -- the same exact play -- so it's hard to expect that it would have fooled the D. And the earlier play had only gotten the first down by a few inches, so it's not like it was a great success.

This was a rookie NFL coach and coordinator overthinking things.

The Panthers have what look like some good young players, but it's gonna be a looooong season here.

It was an entertaining game, though.

Bengals with tough loss. Burrow had some rookie mistakes, but he also looked really good. I’m still all in on him as a future elite NFL QB.

Minnesotan here.  I kinda forgot the Vikings/Packers game was on today and missed it. 

Reading the results, it's clear the team should start thinking about draft position, since there's nothing else meaningful to hope for.

MN's best path is to fake a COVID outbreak and end the season early.

Watching the majority of games this week, there’s no football reason for preseason football. At all.

Fake noise at the Rams stadium is louder than it ever gets for the Rams in real life.

The fake fan noise at sporting events is annoying. Kind of like the canned laughter on the old sitcoms.

Were the Vikings the only ones not doing fake noise though? Flipping to red zone to during commercials and then having it on the rest of the day the Vikings game was by far the quietest. Unless the fake fans just never had anything to cheer about.

Like most others, I wasn't a fan of the fake noise. But I did get a kick out of the fake booing when the refs made a call that went against the Panthers.

You may have hit on something there. The time of possession was ridiculously in favor of the Packers (nearly 42 min to 18 min), so not many chances for the fake Vikings fans to cheer.

That said, I do wonder why the huge number of fake Packers fans who always fill US Bank Stadium weren't cheering more.  ;D
