Playoffs need a bubble, a top 8 in each conference with AFL finals format with top four getting a double chance to offset loss of home ground advantage. Even a week off after final regular season to allow teams to move onto hub. Otherwise playoffs are going to be about luck

In the case of luck then, I hope the entrant from the NFC East rides it all the way for maximum effect.

Great games this morning. Loved the show Deshaun Watson put on, and the '' skins '' silenced the boys. Actually, they completely and utterly obliterated them, which is so Dallas Cowboys style. Good win on the road last week, look like they're back on track only to get humiliated at home.

Couldn't deliver a pizza across the road if they owned their own Domino's.

Profootballtalk reports the league will decide by Friday if Steelers/Ravens can be played on Sunday.
Per Mike Florio, "there’s an increasing belief within the Baltimore organization that the game cannot proceed as scheduled." That would require not only moving the game from Sunday to a week day, but then bumping the Ravens' originally scheduled Week 13 Thursday Dec. 3 contest. Any clarity we gain Friday, of course, will be at the mercy of the virus' spread throughout the Ravens' organization.

NFL-island is what's needed.

Dana White would run the league properly. fu** off Goodell
Dana wouldnt take the job [not that he would even be interviewed for it] because the players have a union and his carny sh*t wont work and he cant exploit them for peanuts.

Dana is a bigger campaigner than anyone other than Vince McMahon.

Guessing that the week 13 TNF game between ravens and cowgirls is now in danger as well
i saw a suggestion of move that to the Sunday and play the Steelers/Washington game on TNF. but that might also need the Ravens to forfeit the Steelers game this week.

force the ravens to play their third stringers, better than forfeit
Hard to force that if they still don't have the outbreak under control.

Earlier in the year there was talk that teams could be made to forfeit games if they have outbreaks because of their own stupidity. Titans and others were just lucky they happened when the NFL could shuffle byes and games. Now its too late for that.

Something like this was bound to happen and will happen again. This will happen in the playoffs and that's when the real sh*t will hit the fan.

Raiders placed DE Takk McKinley on injured reserve.
After failing physicals for the Bengals and 49ers, McKinley landed on the Raiders roster, only to be placed on IR. The 2017 draft bust had just one sack in 85 snaps with Atlanta before being sidelined with a groin injury this season. McKinley has 17.5 sacks over his three-plus years in the league.

16.5 sacks in first three seasons doesn’t look that bad even with all his faults

Was going to post this just in the Jets thread but some of these stories are too good not to be shared....
