I only needed 8 to win in any case.

The Gordon Hayward injury for the Celtics last night, 5 mins into his debut 🤢

Certainly one of the worst I’ve ever seen, and I remember Cisse at Ewood Park!

Broken shinbone and ankle inc. dislocation. There’s videos out there but it’s truly grim stuff. I watched I live and you knew instantly it was broken. The sound of it 😫

128 million dollars.. 5 minutes.

Makes neymar seem like a bargain.

Read the stories but have been avoiding the footage obviously.

Good news is he had surgery today and it's not career threatening. He'll not play again this season by sounds of it but should be back next season. Best case scenario I guess! :?

I was surprised by the result last night but pleasantly so. I did feel that he 4-0 run to open the season flattered them but I honestly didn’t see the Raiders doing them over.

One thing Andy Reid’s teams will inevitably do is lose when it matters. That’s why I’d never pick them for a Super Bowl.

Back on fantasy football terms, I think I've shot myself in the foot already this week after badly needing a win.

Completely forgot about Thursday's matchup and left Marshawn Lynch in. Had a perfect matchup for Mark Ingram too and alas its too late now. Can't help but feel that would have made the difference. Especially since Lynch is a idiot getting involved with the referees like that.

Fingers crossed though! Missing the draft has really cost me badly, trying to piece my team together has been difficult at best.

So I was right, kinda, Ingram had a big night on my bench but the big one was Matt Ryan and the Falcons playing so utterly badly against my Patriots.

Jesus, I was expecting some whitewash revenge for the superbowl. They really are in full hangover mode after the SB last season.

That and Ezekiel Elliott having a near 40 point day. Ridiculous :cry:

Maybe next week!

Jags def kicked some botty for me there. Probably should have played Prescott over Brady but c'est la vie.
