#NFL 2020 - Week 15

Welcome to the Week in Review.  RIP Kevin Greene . (TNF) Chargers 30, Raiders 27 (OT) Let’s get this out of the way off the bat: No, Raider Nation. You can quit with the “We’ve have won if we had Derek Carr. for the whole game.” One : Listen to yourself there. Two: Name one thing Marcus “Forgot I was here, didn’t you?” Mariota did wrong that Derek Carr absolutely would not have done. I’ll wait. Three : Last I checked, Mariota doesn’t play defense. Bottom line: You let an inferior team com into your stadium and beat you. Even as it gave you opportunity after opportunity to take the win, as LAC is wont to do (two missed FGs in a game that went to overtime loom large).

He’s running on fumes halfway though the second quarter. Which is a problem, since Cam is pretty much the entire Patriot offense at this point. Unless Darth Hoodie and co. are counting on a potential (further) playoff expansion, it’s time to start playing for 2012. Which means “Start Jarret Stidham for the final three games.’ The Rams showed one thing: If they can get the run game going¹, with that defense ,they can beat anyone in the NFC. Except maybe the Packers. Fun Fact: This seventh loss breaks New England’s streak of 17 consecutive seasons of double-digit wins. Another loss breaks the 20-year streak of being over .500. The non-losing streak is also at 20 seasons (They were
