Chiefs pulled off a bit of a miracle today to win. The Broncos coach must be fired after today's performance, rumor has it he was going to be anyway.

Down 7 with 4 minutes left and it's 4th down in the red zone and he.....kicks a FG. 4th and 9 from the KC 13 with 4 minutes left to play, down 7 points and he kicks a FG. That bares repeating. The game is meaningless to Denver and he kicks a FG.

Colts got crushed with the season on the line, maybe their coach is gone now. Wentz certainly should be, horrific trade at the time and even worse now.

Rams with a big chokejob too. Game is in OT but the Niners got the momentum, they might win it and make the playoffs.

Bills are likely to win and take the division while Miami is choking hard and might lose this game.

The story of today is massive choking. Put all your money on the Rams being bounced in the first round.

It's inevitable that Tampa Bay will win the Super Bowl unless they get screwed royally on a bad call

I wouldn't be so sure of that, seeing as they play the Niners again on the same exact field.   One thing is for sure, it was a wild ride.  From the Colts and Cards blowing it to Jimmy G coming back from a 17-0 deficit to squeeze into the playoffs (I'll bet Sunstroke is screaming his lungs out), to the nail biter between Pitt and Baltimore, it's been a helluva weekend.

Steelers claim one spot in the AFC.  The other will be decided tonight between the Chargers and Rams.

Unless the Chargers and Raiders tie, then both are in the playoffs and Steelers are out........I think.

You're right, but the odds of that happening are slim to none.

Chargers with a miracle drive send it to overtime, which will cause Steelers fans anxiety.

Refs blew another big call by missing a face mask. 

Refs have been utterly horrid this year

If they knelt down three times would they be disciplined?
