    Just discovered NFL films on GamePass. This is brilliant.

    Soooo close:31:

    Deserved win for Seattle. Wilson is phenomenal. Glad we stayed in till the last snap, I was worried we would be blown out if we couldn't get a running game going like against Miami. But I'm really pleased how Cam looked throwing the ball, if only we had a decent deep threat Pats could be dangerous.
    Onto Las Vegas!

    What a shock last night to watch the Raiders not just beat New Orleans but fully deserve the win as well against one of the better teams in the league. Will be interesting to see how next week goes with another really tough one away to the Patriots.

    Drew Brees is cooked. I'm not even sure the Saints will be one of the league's best teams with that level of QB play. If they are going to do anything this year it will be leaning on Alvin Kamara and their Defense.

    Fair comments on Brees he did look way off his best last night. No question but it is early for them and they have been slow out of the gate quite often in the past 6 years and still gone on to make the playoffs which I think they will do again this season.

    Beyond that come on now give me some hope for the Raiders considering how bad and for how long they have been:dancing:

    I think the Saints will make the playoffs but I don't see them doing much when they get there.

    As for the Raiders, I don't believe in their Defense but the offense looks good. In the first quarter last night their offensive line was getting it's * kicked but they obviously made some adjustments and shredded a good Defense the rest of the night. Jacobs is a stud. Waller is a stud. If Ruggs starts chipping in, the passing game could be really good. Definitely signs to feel optimistic about if you're a Raiders fan.

    I thought Brees did fine last night. The Saints had the ball for way less time than the Raiders and they racked up 24 points. Raiders won the game on their third downs.. I think the Saints will bounce back.

    Started with Undrafted. Always wondered about those guys who don’t get picked. Such a cut throat system.

    Agree with you about the Raiders defense. Ultimately it would seem this year whenever the Raiders do come a cropper it is likely to be the defense just was not good enough. The question is will the clearly vastly improved offense be enough to get the Raiders to the playoffs. Next weeks trip to the Patriots will I think show where the Raiders are likely to end up this season.

    As for the Saints yes I think they will go onto to make the playoffs. Probably won't win the NFC but I think they are still one of the better NFC teams so last nights win for the Raiders is cause for hope because that was a deserved win against a good side.

    Aye, really makes it worth the money. Celtic obviously aren't anywhere near the size of organisation but they could take some inspiration from the quality of content the NFL have.

    Mini documentaries on past players, past games, behind the scenes stuff. I’d be all over that if Celtic done it.

    He’s a scary man, if I was Trubisky I’d feel invincible with him in my corner.
