    Playoff rule -- an additional 15-minute quarter added to the game. If there is still no winner after that quarter, then the winner will be the team that scores the next point. Seems easy, logical and fair to me...and to the teams involved.

    Any thoughts?

    John
    I’m fine with the rule as is for the regular season. Playoffs it should be extra quarters until there is a winner. Or college rules if they are worried about time.

    I'm looking forward to the Super Bowl. I married into a Rams Fan family, so when the Seahawks aren't playing, we pull for the Rams. Glad to see Brady NOT in the big game.

    I watch football for certain teams like most folks but I also watch when certain players are on. The Rams have several players I like to see.

    Yeah, I'm kinda rooting for, Stafford. That guy is an amazing QB and he rotted in, Detroit for so long I hope he wins one. That being said, Burrows is the real deal and I wouldn't be sad to see him get one but, I'm pretty sure he will be back again. He's the real deal, IMHO!!!

    Yeah. Stafford is good but he lead the league (a tie with Trevor Lawrence {Jacksonville} in the regular season this year) in interceptions thrown. I suspect that might be their undoing. Both QBs threw 17 picks...averaging one per game.
    I really don't care who wins. I like both teams. I just want a good game.

    The above sentiments above excluded, I agree. Mainly hoping for a game like the playoff's this year!!!


    Little nostalgia, recently I was watching that, Bills vs Oilers game from a few years ago. machine Gun Kelly vs Warren "Shoot the" Moon!!! What a fucking game!!! I remember I caught it at my in-laws and my Father in law, BIL and I were riveted to the TV!! Some comeback!!! It's still the record, no? Came back from down 38 I believe.

    Wow. Don't believe it. Couldn't have done it without Garrell's answering all my dumb questions, like how do you have a .5 pass. Or .5 anything.

    Congrats to all and thanks to Garrell!!!

    Congrats to the winners! This was an interesting contest with ESPN expanding the variables of each game. Well beyond out regular season of just wins and losses. Maybe closer to fantasy football (which I don't play). It kept things interesting - and yes, I did learn a few things about odds-making. The .5 thing makes sense.

    Thanks Garrell!
