Forte is down and not getting up....I really really hope he is ok.

Sitting with Barber on my bench all season may just pay off in the playoffs baby.

Poor Bengals. They should have been up 7-0, but had the TD called off for a questionable false start penalty. Then they got their FG blocked. And now it's snowballed, down 28-7.

I am feeling really damn good about this game, this team, and this QB. He has pro poise, no question!

ENOUGH WITH THE CONSTANT PENALTIES AND MISTAKES I AM VERY CLOSE TO STARTING "FIRE RAHEEM" RANTS EVERY FIVE SECONDS.

This team is just DUMB this year.

Well the orange jerseys don't help.

Cushing was out for a bit, but came back in. Andre Johnson apparently re-injured his hammy. I'm about ready to say that Andre should just rest until the playoffs, although the doctors may say that for me.

We're ahead by 7, the Falcons will get the ball with about 1:10 left.

The Vikings DC should be fired for not telling anybody to cover Demaryius Thomas.

I knew I was going out on a limb by picking the Bengals but I didn't expect their defense to thoroughly sh*t the bed.

Now our punter is hurt. If you wear Texans gear, your health insurance carrier has got to hate you.

Hell, even my knee hurts, and I haven't worn my t-shirt since last Sunday. I either need to get another (yes), or stop wearing this one and save my body (possibly better for my family).

Another hurt Texans player as I write this. That's four this game.

Tim Tebow just wins!

Tied for first with Oakland now.

Texans win a franchise-best sixth game in a row! TJ Yates wins in his first start, throwing some legit passes in the meantime. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but he is a lot more mobile than Schaub. If he looks this good going forward, I could talk myself into a QB controversy.

...maybe I should wait for the buzz to wear off before evaluating these things.

Seriously though, you probably have to credit the defense with this one. Fantastic job as usual, highlighted by two first-quarter interceptions.

Oh crap. Patrick Willis down for the 49ers...

The sad thing for Minny is that Ponder looked really good until the end of the game. The defense had some costly blown coverages, but overall it was a fun game to watch as the score kept ratcheting up. The Broncos in first ... wow.

Good thinking.

I'm so sick of this bullsh*t incomplete pass calls after the WR takes 4 steps, and then gets the ball knocked away. It's a catch and a fumble. Stop taking away good plays by the defense!

I don't even care about Baltimore or Cleveland. But that's a sh*tty call, and it has been for years.

Yeah, I think you're getting a little crazy there.

My god, Gronkowski's gonna break some records this year.

The again there's this person named Jimmy Graham.

Playoffs? Playoffs?!

That's right, the 49ers are in the playoffs.

And wow did Dallas just blow the end of regulation. 2 timeouts and they could have easily kicked a FG but they let 13 seconds run off.

Wow nice 2-point call by the Giants. We might be having another OT game today!

EDIT: Nevermind. Aaron Rodgers just made it look like the Giants D wasn't even on the field.

Ugh, tough loss but atleast the Giants made it a close one.

Greenbay made it close by not doing what the Saints did and just blow out that average Giants D.

way too many dropped balls but disaster still averted.

Dallas blew a game? Music to my ears!

True, lots of dropped passes but the Giants had a few of their own as well. Was fun to watch.

That Bears/Chiefs game was almost National Championship caliber. Just raw, tough defenses slugging it out.

It was either watch that game today, or dabble in self-mutilation. I'm not sure I made the right choice.

Didn't realize the Giants and Cowboys still hadn't played yet. Those 2 games will pretty much decide the division.

That's why I found it funny that the "experts" were saying the Giants had zero shot to win the division, even though they probably still think the Eagles can pull it off. It's a two man show in the NFC East, and if the Giants can finish with 4 wins (@ Dallas, Washington, @ NYJets, Dallas), then the division is theirs.

If they continue to play like they did today, that is. If they play like last week, they're f*cked.

The Team that wins 3 or 4 games in a row in the playoffs will win the SuperBowl.. see I'm an expert!

From the Monday Morning QB:

Before I let Tebow go, I asked him if anyone after the game -- coaches, players, execs -- had said anything memorable to him. "Everybody was happy,'' he said, "but I'll tell you one thing that happened during the week that I remember ... ''

Good, I thought. John Fox, maybe, sidling up to him and saying something sportingly profound like, "Son, we're going to ride that left arm and those legs to the Super Bowl.''

" ... I had an opportunity to talk with a kid named Blake Appleton, from Florida, on Thursday. He's a leukemia patient who's just been moved to hospice. And after the game, when I was being interviewed on TV, I got to say his name. That's what I'm proud of today. I let him know people cared about him. I let him know God has a plan for him."

And that was the end of the Tebow interview. He had to rush to get on the bus to the airport. Except ...

"Have a good day, Mr. King. And God bless you."

Eventually people are going to get off this kid, and let him either succeed or fail as every other NFL player does, and stop trying to find all the reasons he should be failing, but isn't. All the so-called-experts need to appreciate the good he's bringing to the sport while he does have this opportunity, and lay off. If he eventually does not work out... so be it.

This is how you totally screw your team.

Total fcukwits.

Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams and tight end Fred Davis are expected to miss the remainder of the NFL season as punishment for multiple failed drug tests under the terms of a settlement between the league and the NFL Players Association, according to people with knowledge of the deal.

Ugh, no Cutler, no Forte, no offense. Hanie looked good for one drive until hands of stone Roy Williams decided to let it bounce off his hands into the defense. I guess he didn't want a TD.

The Chiefs won due to a knocked down hail mary....

Texans looked decent against a tough Falcons team. I'm pleasantly surprised by T.J. Yates' performance, but he still needs experience. He had some nice accuracy on his passes (lots of drops from the receivers) and quite a few of them looked shot out of a rifle.

Andre is out again after pulling his other hamstring? Nice. Back to no decent receivers. Is T.O. still available?
