    Peyton is scary good. Makes it look so easy. Broncos defense looks elite as well. This team will be heavy favorites to win it all.

    It just makes their inevitable choke job in the playoffs that much more painful to their fans.

    Same with me. I also had Ronnie Hillman who...

    - Gets a touchdown called back for stepping out of bounds
    - Gets a touchdown called back for holding
    - Vultured by some dude named Juwan Thompson
    - Vultured by some dude named Juwan Thompson

    Depressing, but Peyton always feeds the hungry receivers. Julius will have a big game next week, I bet.

    If Seattle returns for a rematch...I will bet 10k on Seattle beating them again...This time...Russell Wilson embarrasses the Broncos defense.

    That being said, Seattle has been playing some bad ball. I feel terrible for Cam and the Panthers...they are gonna get beat down this Sunday. Badly.

    Are we just going to ignore the terrible officiating...

    I'll say it, Denver's a better team than us right now, but when we get healthy & hopefully have some refs that aren't paid off... It'll be a different game next time in SD.

    Yeah, no doubt about it. Luck and the Colts could possibly make it a game between them if they match up. Same with Wilson and the Seahawks if they get hot and make it to the Super Bowl. But other than that it will most likely be smooth sailing.

    Reversing the fumble and recovery in the first half was a pretty iffy call. That would've given SD major momentum if it had been upheld.

    Gonna be the big D superbowl, Denver vs Dallas. Ratings would be off the chart.

    Dallas has so many holes and is so beatable it blows my mind it's getting overlooked. They've been winning in spite of several weak spots. They're gonna hit the ground hard at some point. They aren't a bad football team but they sure as hell are not elite. Just give it some time.

    Their holes are self-inflicted: turnovers. They're more likely to beat themselves before any team beats them. If they can minimize that, not many teams are better than them.

    They beat us [Texans] on Heaves and Miracle Catches
    That luck probably won't hold up

    I hope you're right. The only flaw I see is their lack of pass rush and perhaps overusing Murray.

    Given the stats of that game, maybe it was only that close because of bad luck by the Cowboys or good luck by the Texans.

    Didn't the cowboys turn it over in the red zone a couple times?

    Cowboys dominated that game. They had like 25+ plays in the opposing side of the ball compared to the Texans. But I'm sure Texans fans thought that was a lucky win by the Cowboys lol.

    But you know why the game was remotely close: 3 turnovers for the Cowboys, including 2 fumbles.

    That's the Cowboys problem right now: turnovers. That's on them moreso than the opponents.

    They won because of a super lucky bounce on the Dez catch that set up the FG in OT and because a safety fell down on the Terrence Williams TD catch. Either way, it's not a big deal, the Cowboys are the Cowboys so we all know they'll choke eventually. They're always SB contenders in October, never in January.

    You really don't know your football do you? When was the last time the Cowboys were 6-1 in October?
