Shutting out the broncos.

It's far from perfect but 3-4 feels great from 0-4. At least we are back in the season now. Sneak a win vs New England and it is really game on.

Bosa, Ingram and McCain are wrecking it out there. That cobbled together O-line didn't stand a chance.

Henry was Henry....Benjamin had by far his best game for us...Ekeler is a useful alternative to Gordon...Shame Mike Williams dropped a couple and the defence missed out on a couple of turnovers but you can't moan too much on a 21-0 win.

Yeah can't add much more really. Shame for Mike Williams as if he wants more targets he's going to have to earn the trust of PR. Not gonna happen by continuing to drop the ball.

Funny how the one INT we did manage to get was one we should have let hit the turf.

Defence excites me. Offence is still very meh in my opinion although Denver's D is still good so that has to be taken into consideration.

Still 3 wins in a row, 2 in the division FINALLY after not winning one for years is great

Gordon had a rough game which didn't help the offence...but he's playing banged up out there so have to bear that in mind I guess.

Allen isn't looking as good as he used to and Tyrell isn't getting the plays he was last year, which considering the upgrade in pass protection we've had this season is kinda strange. Probably more down to more conservative passing play calling I guess. I was pretty excited about the line up of receivers going into the season but it hasn't really worked out that way. Still very early days on Mike Williams obviously.

Tyrell and Inmans contracts are up at the end of the season I think so could be some change in that respect.

Pretty gutting for Slauson to be out for the season...hurts us more depthwise than play level with Feeney stepping in. Hopefully we make a decent move to sign someone up. Schofield has played reasonably well so far at tackle.

And somehow we are still in the race for the playoffs.

Good morale boosting win. You wonder if it would have been so easy of the bills hadn't inexplicably moved to a rookie QB who's never started a game but a morale boosting victory nonetheless

The next 2 (Boys and Browns) are winnable. If we get to 6-6 then we have a shot with the Skins Chiefs Jets and Raiders to see out the year

Well that was impressive. Despite the kicker meltdown, winning comfortably in the end showed some mettle. With the Chiefs losing to the Bills, it really is game on in the AFC West. That game at Arrowhead is looking huge right now.

PS Casey Hayward is the GOAT.

But 5 games is a long time in football.

The chargers don't stack up well when it comes to tiebreakers in either the division race or WC race. Whilst there are scenarios that they can win the division or WC if tied with someone else, there are more scenarios where they miss out

So as things stand they need to win either outright. Tough ask but division looks more likely right now

At least its in our own hands. A 5 game shootout...I think 4 wins probably wins the division if the one we lose isn't chiefs or raiders. Win all 5 and we win the division.

Just please don't lose to the Browns again!

That was ....comfortable. Winning games easily right now and the defence continues to come up with turnovers. Not even a quarter of Clemens could derail us. Hopefully no injuries and we go into the biggest game of the season vs KC. Basically a playoff game for the division. The jets will be without McCown when we play them the following week and the raiders looked totally anaemic vs the Chiefs. The Chiefs haven't been playing well but at Arrowhead it will always be a tough game. Hopefully Bosa and Ingram disrupt Smith and Allen and Henry (and Tyrell this week) continue to move the chains.

Really enjoyable to watch the team right now for basically the first time in 3 or 4 years.

Yep already nervous about Saturday. Our biggest game in years.

I'm just thankful that we are still playing meaningful games this late into the season, it's been a long time since we've played games that mattered to us in December.

Even a loss on Saturday and we'd just about still be in the WC race too but you sense a loss Saturday ends the year.

The Chiefs may have snapped their streak and they are a difficult team to beat at home but we are playing better football right now. It's gonna be a nervy one and im waiting for us the charger away our playoff hopes but im buzzing and i believe we can win Saturday!!

Whos watching?

It's been such a hard season, the loss of San Diego, 0-4, kicker issues, Perryman and Williams injured.

Then this season has got better and better as its went on!!!

So so nervous for Kansas City, I thought Cousins and Washington would give us a real battle but we absolutely coasted!

I'll be sitting up at 1:25am and hopefully we win, it's the biggest game in years. Can't wait.
