  • NY Jets @ Miami - Miami
  • Detroit @ Minnesota - Minnesota

Congratulations Joy on your team being the only one left standing in our group!

Sorry Cyn.  Don't know if you got to watch or had to work, but that game was a heartbreaker at the end.  I can't believe Rodgers gets in the playoffs when he was out so many weeks.

Sorry, I've been away a while. I have a lot going on at this time. 

Congratulations Joy on you team winning. 

I haven't watched any games but I did find out the Saints won (I think it's the wild card spot?) 

I hope everyone has a great New Year! 

I'll try to be here more often.
