Big NFC game tonight

Atlanta with real attitude on that drive. Wow.

Saints have beat them up the last few years. Only loss in the last 4-5(?) years was when Hartley missed a chip shot 30 yarder to win

That is how you should use two RB's. Impressive.

Have J Rogers on my fantasy team...was hoping they'd call his number on that td.
Spiller is like Rogers but Fredie isn't the thumper that Turner is.

What an arm. Great protection.

Always amazes me how thick turners lower body is.

I saw Breese during warm ups..he's a vocal leader with fire in his belly...admirable. Wish Fitz had that confidence.

A pick...big deal. Saints won't let that phase them.

I love/hate how hard his pushing it down the field. 2 passes on that drive deeper than fitz has thrown since 2011. Just hope he settles in and takes more of what they give him.

Honest question - when was the last time fitz stood on the 50 and dropped it in the endzone? Stevie's drop vs the steelers?

Like a Cat dozer

San Jose will show up soon...he's a big fan of "non Sunday / non Bills" threads...and adds some comedy.

Breese has stretched the field...will make those underneath throws a little easier maybe??

Good conversion - need to feed ivory some carries. Violent runner. Sets a tone when he does well.

When Fitz steps into his throw properly, he can chuck it... problem of course it is usually 8 yds too far or behind. I recall a deep sideline pass but nothing like we just saw from Drew.

3 tackles in A LOT of these snaps. Clearly worried about the line

Even if he missed it, it'd be nice to try to keep the D honest occasionally. Colstons bigger than Stevie, but no quicker. Essentially the pick turns into a punt on throws like that but backs up the defense some as a worst case.

No better way to demoralize a team than to run it down their throats. And it's gonna show up in the 4th quarter I think.

GO BILLS!!!

Turner hasn't run like this in a couple years. Makes Atlanta dangerous. I haven't bought their hype yet but with him running the can do damage.

Fitz pocket presence is a little suspect unlike Breese...he ends up throwing flat footed and all arm. I know Blecher report is a little gimmicky but that article someone posted in another thread was great.

That was offensive pass interference.

Ryan's only completion is the Gonzalez debacle.

That was a lucky bounce

I hate bleacher but that was a good one.

I don't think I would ever call a 10-1 team vs a 5-6 a "big game" even in the division.

Saints win and they will be the #6 seed if favorites hold this weekend, Atlanta playing for the #1 and to get the saints monkey off their back

And one of the biggest rivalries around
