I worry about the Rams. They are 7-1 on the road, and destroyed Seattle in Seattle. They are playing out out of their minds right now. Their defense is decent too, and it's hard to beat a team twice in the same season.

This year's playoff setting in the NFC is as bizarre of one that I can ever remember. You have 3 teams with only four losses (I realize we have 1 more week) but at least the buy would easily be locked down at this point in the season. And I don't care what anyone says, the Bears always play us tough. It really is a total crap shoot. It is safe to say that the Rams and Saints are two different teams (we are too), but to think we will beat them like we did the first time around is being highly optimistic. The truth is Carolina is good, and all Seattle needs to do is sneak in and it looks like there is a decent chance that happens too. And if not, Atlanta is good too. It will be a tough battle this year for sure.

They worry me the least. We didn't just beat them, we dominated them.

So the NFL flexed all game with playoff implications into time slots. The NFC South teams now play at 4:25, while the Vikings and Eagles stay at 1:00. We will know our seeding but not who we play until the end of the day. There is no Sunday night game.

Our opponents will be New Orleans Saints , LA Rams and New England Patriots.

And we shall destroy them all.

Look how bad Philly is without wentz. He should be mvp.

Surprising how bad Carr looks. Foles is no Keenum.

Absolutely. I'm eating crow on Keenum and Shurmur this year and I'm happy to do it.

Foles and Carr are both sucking. There were a lot of Carr fans here, and last year he was good, but he is stinking tonight. If we play the Eagles, Im not as pessimistic as I usually am. They kind of have our number. Glad we have Case.

Tell you what, guys ... the Eagles without Wentz are simply not the same team. Foles does not have his mobility, nor his arm.

If the Raiders weren't so pathetic on offense, the Eagles would be getting blown out at home.

Getting the #1 seed doesn't seem as important now.

Geez, Philly got lucky.

Derek Carr gives the game away with yet another pick. The Eagles, with 11 total yards in the entire second half, manage two first downs and a long field goal.

Carr is afraid of Philly's pass rush.

Doesn't matter. Philly can't beat us with that offense.

Philly looks like a 1 and done team in the playoffs, at home or not. Although the thought of playing another road game in the cold scares me.

Oh yeah, Carr sucks! Glad we got Teddy over him.

Infuriating how bad the Raiders were tonight. Carr was awful as was their line.

Which means they will get lucky squeak by their first game and we will have to go there.

I can see them squeaking by a lesser team like the Chiefs or the Titans, but most likely the Eagles will face the Rams.

So there will be no squeaking. :nono:

One and out for Philly and the Rams will face us in our house. :beerock:

PS : Carr = second best paid QB in the league... :roll:

Rams won't be playing their starters this week. They're electing to go with rest saying #3 or #4 seed doesn't make much difference. So that's one #2 playoff seed scenario likely gone for Vikings.

Frankly, I can see every game go against the Vikings this weekend.

If this is truly a different run than years past, the Vikings will take care of Chicago.

This is going to sound pessimistic, but when I first got into the Vikings, and was just starting football in HS, I remember another Vikings team with a good D. I think it was '86 or '87, and we played Washington. And Darrin frigging Nelson dropped a TD catch in the endzone that would have won it, or tied it. I was sick for a week after that, seriously. I really hope we see a dominant D against the Bears this week, and stop the run. And contain whatever QB we face. I doubt Trib runs that much though.

Pretty simple: We have to beat Chicago. We cannot sit here and worry about other teams. If we want the bye, we need to earn it. I fully trust that this team will take care of business this Sunday. I am looking forward to Sunday's game. SKOL.

For the heck of it. Offensive points per game and defensive points per game the last 4 weeks.

Code:
          OPPG   DPPG
Eagles     27     25
Vikings    22     12
Saints     26     18
Rams       34     22
Panthers   26     25
Falcon     17     19
Seahawks   19     24


Right now, I see the Saints as the biggest threat.

For me it's the Saints and the Rams. I do think trust the Rams to not play poorly here and I really think Drew Brees is having his best season since 2009.

Actually for the Saints, I think it's their running game. When they are held to 101 yards or less they only score 20 points a game. When they run for more than 120 yards a game it's like 34 points per game.
