How are the Jets still in the playoff chase? The Jets are 1 game out of playoffs and play Buffalo, Tennessee, and San Diego to close out of the season. They’ve also won 3 of their last 4. Cowboys have also won 4 of 5. BTW, Cleveland has won 3 in a row, so have the Rams. Bears have lost 4 of 5

Definition of Bounty:
This week Paul Tagliabue reversed the suspensions of the Saints players involved in the Bounty scandal. But in saying that, Tags said “the players participated in a performance pool that rewarded key plays, including hard tackles.” Isn’t that the definition of what a Bounty is? You’re toeing a pretty fine line there.
Ouch, watching the Seahawks absolutely demolish the Cardinals in a 58-0 beating was atrocious. The Cards had 8 turnovers, and couldn’t even score a garbage TD. Talk about a fall from grace, 9 weeks ago they were 4-0 and the surprise of the season.
My head tells me that the Rams won’t make the playoffs, but my heart knows they are still in it. The past 5 seasons, I have basically known that the Rams were out of the chase by week 4. For the first time in forever, they actually have a shot at the division in Week 15! The Rams have won 4 more games than last season, and things seem to be slowly turning around. If the Rams win out, they would be 9-6-1, beating out any 9-7 team out there. Also, if San Francisco loses out, the Rams would take the division! Both are pretty rare, but still.
For the record, if the Bears beat the Packers, and the Vikings win out, they win the division as well!
I am going to start implementing a little weekly humor regarding the NFL.

Seattle beat AZ 58-0! That’s a lopsided score even for a Harlem Globetrotter’s game.
The last time Cardinals got that embarrassed involved the Catholic church.
58 points?! I’ve heard the phrase “The Defense Rests” but that’s ridiculous.
Redskins won, but RGIII sprained his knee, so once again Wounded Knee has placed the Redskins’ future in jeopardy.
Jamaal Charles got an autograph from Peyton Manning – easily the best quarterback signing the Chiefs have made in 25 years.
Tebow was active on Sunday…He never plays though, my jacket has more snaps then him
It has been 6 days since our last arrest. I’ve decided to revive this again after a couple weeks. Apparently after smashing the previous streak, the NFL had to end it abruptly by having 2 players killed for stupid reasons.
