    Omigod, horrifying loss for the Giants today. To lose on a game-ending 63-yd FG? Cripes.

    I think Gano's kick would have been good from 70, maybe more. Looked like it was shot out of a cannon.

    Yep, amazing. And this on a day when another reliable kicker, Green Bay's Mason Crosby, missed FOUR FG's and an XP.

    Ugh, yeah, as a Packer fan, that was painful. Kudos to Coach McCarthy, though, for sending him out there near the end of the game for a confidence builder.

    Some news & notes:
    - I'll say it: the Cleveland Browns are a playoff contender. They have a play-making defense with an exciting offense. They still need to get Nick Chubb involved more, but they're a solid kicker away from being 5-0 (or at least 4-1). Baker Mayfield is the real deal and was the right choice at #1.
    - Oh, the heartbreak of losing a game on a 63-yard game-ending FG. And OBJ.....please tone down the selfishness, thanks
    - Adam Thielen now has the second longest streak of 100-yard games to start a season in NFL history. If the Vikings get Dalvin Cook healthy, watch out.
    - Speaking of Thielen, he was a UDFA, and Stefon Diggs was 5th round pick. Kirk Cousins was a 4th rd pick. And there's Laquon Treadwell, taken 23rd overall in 2016.
    - Drew Brees will in all likelihood become the NFL's all-time leading passer tonight.
    - Isaiah Crowell rushed for the most yards in a game in Jets history, and combined with Bilal Powell's 99 yards and Darnold's 5 yards, dropped a combined 323 rushing yards on the Broncos beleaguered defense.
    - Blake Bortles threw 4 INTs.....oh, and still also had 430 yards passing, the 14th 400+ passing yard game of 2018
    - Kenny Golladay is emerging as a dominant NFL receiver
    - the AFC North may be the toughest division in football

    and killed my fantasy team.

    On a side note, does anyone doubt Drew Brees is a first ballot HoF candidate?

    I don't think there's been any doubt about that for at least 5 years now.

    I'd be all in favor of taking away voting privileges for anyone who doesn't have him on the first ballot.

    Was glad to see one of the first congratulatory messages was from Brett Favre.
