Yep, looking at it from this viewpoint seems it was completely fair. "Unfair" would be not allowing Buffalo's defense on the field to have a chance of stopping KC's offense.Defense is still a part of the game, and Buffalo's defense had their chance to help their team win and failed in OT. We can talk about Josh Allen and the Buffalo offense, but they only make up half the team. Third if we count special teams, but I'm like the Green Bay Packers and I don't do that.
Anyway, if I were to change the rules at all it would be for the playoffs only. Play a full ten minute period. If it is still tied at that point, then advance to a sudden death OT. First score of any kind wins.
The two coaches have been linked since their days in Washington and have employed similar offenses across their careers. But recently, their philosophies have diverged—and the NFC championship game won’t be decided by their similarities, but their differences.
Mac Jones set the Patriots rookie record for TD’s and yards, Devonta Smith set the eagles rookie record for touchdowns, Jaylen Waddle set the Miami rookie record for receptions. Najee set the Steelers rookie record for yards from scrimmage. All 1st rounders, all elite.

I think you're number 1 was thrown around this weekDiscussion Point (Overtime)
What if we did it like this?
1) the coin toss at the start of the game is the choice you're making for both the game AND overtime
IOW - if you defer to the 2nd half, you defer to 2nd possession in OT
2) both teams get the ball at least once in OT.
3) if the team with the ball FIRST scores a TD on the first drive, the second team':
a) HAS the same amount of time to score as the first team did
b) HAS to go for the two-point conversion
IOW - you give up the opening overtime kickoff for a TD, you have 10-15 seconds to tie it.
OR - no OT kickoff, you start at your own 20.
Thoughts? I'm just throwig stuff out here.
Probably the best or 2nd best outro for a legendary quarterback depending on your view on John Elway’s final year. Usually they suck and it’s a bad look for the game. I still forget Peyton went out on a Super Bowl with how horrid he played. If I was really going to award a quarterback for that Broncos season then half of it would go to Osweiler.Some guy named Brady retired today. Don't know who that is but I sure he did ok in the NFL
Unless there is a massive overhaul then it could take him 4-5 years to get it, and I don’t know if Kraft is going to be that patient being a 2nd and 3rd place team in the AFC East just to chase Shula’s recordBelichick is 38 wins behind Shula, I think he is shooting for that. He will be 70 in April.
The Bucs are losing a crap ton of players. So it’s highly unlikely that Tampa is the destination. I would say Denver is the most likely but if you are Aaron you have to ask “what’s the point?” Denver may have talent but they have 3 far more talented teams within their division.A-A-Ron might demand a trade and the Bucs might just pull the trigger.
Decency left ESPN long ago.Well ESPN is about to get absolutely roasted for jumping the gun and making this a circus. Brady is probably still retiring but the disrespect shown from ESPN and certain members close to him really looks bad on them. Let the guy announce his own retirement. Hasn’t he earned that, or does the “I got to be first” attitude in the media and the pettiness in Boston really trump common decency?
Very true. It would be funny if by some long shot chance he says “you know I talked it over with Gisele and Mr Licht, and decided that we can do one more year.” I wonder how many of these high ranking guys who broke the story are fired. Adam Schefter knows better than to do this bull crap.Decency left ESPN long ago.
