A tight end away from victory.

I think we can safely say that the Batfish boys deserved that. Hurrah.

Talk about a close finale. I made some shocking team choices the last few weeks of the season. Losing Brown didn’t help either.

Just held on to the 3rd place. Phew!

Though just shows how silly playoffs as a concept are.

Cowboys/Eagles today at HT resembled a PL game: 0-0.

That last happened in an NFL game six years ago.

Just sitting here with my new Blackburn Rovers, "Pride of Lancashire" scarf, hoping Dallas can end the season with a win.

It happened.

9-7 just sounds so much better than 8-8. Even without being in playoffs. :(

Even though playoffs are a silly concept. As is a season where you don't actually play all the teams....

Fun fact: The Cleveland Browns are 88-216 since coming back in 1999 (over 19 seasons), a fun comparison of 1986-1995 (10 seasons before they moved), they were 80-78 in the time frame.

Another fun fact, Cleveland Browns fans will be holding a parade next Saturday to commemorate their perfect season. I probably won't go (not because I am lazy and only live 1 hour away, because it's in Cleveland and it's in the middle of winter).

I'm half tempted to declare as a Browns fan, just for the lulz.

Going into the playoffs, I'm expecting a Patriots/Vikings super bowl. Can't see past the Patriots to win either, as much as it pains me.

Interesting that there are three teams from the NFC south in though, given not that many seasons ago it was described as the worst division....

Although all the have been to a Superbowl since 2010.

You write New England off at your peril, but I'm doing it anyway... They haven't looked as song this year... But it's hard to pick a clear favourite.

Vikings a good shout, as are Steelers, but I'm going for Carolina just for the hell of it.

If you support the Browns to find someway to lose a game, it is exhilarating.
