Dolphins did it with a much better performance from Tua and it proved to be effective.

Wouldn’t be controversial if this game wasn’t important!!!

Maybe if the team hadn't told Cris and Al in the production meeting that they were looking for an opportunity to get Sudfeld into the game so they could increase his trade value. That just means they look at this game as an exhibition, to which I will refer you back to my initial criticisms.

I fucking hate the Giants and everyone who has made me stoop to the level of defending them.

The only thing keeping them in the game was Jalen's ability to run, which brought them 2 TDs. Within a drive, it was obvious that Sudfeld was not going to win them the game (and that's why he stayed in).

If Pederson is already benching Jalen for performance reasons, in completely irrelevant games, that doesn't bode well for Jalen's role and just makes scratching Carson Wentz look worse. If it's a matter of keeping Jalen healthy, he never should have played that much of the game to begin with.

So you either have a really clunky tank, a poorly executed bid to analyze depth, or a failed attempt at a comeback, all of which caused unnecessary drama at the QB position.

We've got nothing to lose. If Alex were to break his leg again, we probably wouldn't have him as an option in 2021. Best to roll the dice with Taylor Heinecke.

Wonder why LA didn’t bother to activate Bortles, who already knows their playbook, knowing fine well that their starting QB was still recovering. Now that their backup is out, they’re in an extremely precarious situation.

Well it’s been a nice season but I think this is it for Seattle. Rams came to play. Seahawks didn’t.

With the Rams' defense being what it is, Seattle needed to keep thumbless Goff to 20 points or less and that's not going to happen.

Jesus christ. This game really annoyed me. Also I really don't like the Rams. So there's that.

At least it didn't stay field goal central, but my God.

The TD doesn't matter... But I still take it back.

Haha, I was literally saying to Travis, "I don't think the Seahawks line is that bad..." as it collapsed to end the game.

It wasn’t that bad throughout the regular season aside from maybe 2-3 games.

But the real problems today were that they couldn’t stop the run (something happened they’ve done well all season), Russell was having accuracy issues (which is very atypical), and a few receivers who are usually more sure-handed dropped a few.

I definitely think the accuracy issues and glaring drops were extremely atypical from that Seahawks offense and that triggered my “worst playoff game I’ve seen in a while” comment.

How about that final game, though? That was a hell of a good time.
