The turf is bad all the time.

Nice to hear the opposing coach say that the game was "lost on the line of scrimmage"/that they "got whipped" there.

I can definitely get used to that.

Glad we got the win, and i dont if it has been stated already, but i think the defensive plays zone way too much which leaves the middle wide open...hopefully Cushing will bring a stop to that....

We have a +6 point differential, we are tight rope walking here, trusting our VERY GOOD offense to cover for what has been a pretty terrible pass defense.

Other division leaders:

Baltimore 6 points
Redskins -6 points
Bears 1 point
Cardinals -60 points (that isn't a typo)

So including the Texans 5 of 8 division leaders are rope walking. PFT posted something today about how this is an historically close season.

Interesting stats Cak.

So much in the league comes down to a bounce of the ball in the end I guess.

Yeah, this could be one of those years where 10-6 and 11-5 don't get you into the playoffs.

I'd say it indicates the opposite - there are 13 2-2 teams right now and no 4-0 teams. Nobody is running away with the deal right now. Looks more like there might be some 10-6 or 9-7 division winners.

But isn't it true that if someone wins a weak division at 9-7, that's going to leave a bunch of 10-6 teams fighting for WC spots? Which means some of those 10-6 teams won't make it.

No.

A few years ago in the NFC, the Seahawks won their division at 9-7 and there were 2 8-8 wildcards that got in.

It all depends on how the wins are distributed. If there are fewer teams with 11+ victories and fewer teams with 5- losses, then the teams will obviously stack up in the 8-8 to 10-6 range.

Normally at this time of the season, there are still several undefeated teams. And the one undefeated team in the league right now is the Chiefs and no one really expects the Chiefs to continue undefeated for very much longer, especially with the Colts coming to town.

But there are still a lot of games to play. It's still not out of the realm of possibility that we'll end up with a bunch of teams getting hot and finishing in the 11+ range pushing the playoff goal into the 10-6 or 11-5 range.

True dat.

And as far as KC goes, wasn't it Denver (last year?) who went 6-0 or something and wound up 8-8? There's a looong way to go.
