Thought you were a Bengals fan CB?
Bears fan here with a soft spot for the Bills, first started watching NFL around 1992 when the Bills were in the midst of their 4 consecutive Superbowl defeats.....was depressing watching those poor blokes find a way to lose 4 in a row- they deserved to win at least 1.

Who was their field goal kicker or non-kicker. Is my memory correct that he lost them a couple of Superbowls?

Scott Norwood was the kicker in the first 1 or 2 Superbowls- he missed a last-play field goal attempt in one but after watching a documentary about the Bills of that era I'm pretty sure he was attempting his longest field goal of the season and it was an open-air stadium that night IIRC. Wasnt an easy kick.
After the Superbowl when the Bills did their hometown parade (after losing) the whole gathered crowd chanted "Scott, Scott, Scott" in support of the shattered bloke: it was a classy moment from obviously disappointed fans.
If you ever get the chance mate there is an ESPN "30 for 30" documentary titled The Four Falls Of Buffalo about that era of Bills teams.....hands down the best sporting doco I have ever seen. It is brilliant, both gut wrenching yet inspiring how those blokes dealt with losing 4 Superbowls in a row yet busting a gut every one of those years to get back to the big dance. One playoff game they came back from 30 or so points down at halftime with their backup quarterback on the field. Magic stuff!

Thanks for the info, it was Scott Norwood and I stand corrected on his culpability. Although an Oakland Raiders fan I can remember feeling for the Bills in those years. As an old Wests supporter who suffered through three straight grand final losses to Saints I can empathize with the Bills. I'll keep an eye out for that doco.

How about those Eagles. 61 yard field goal with one second left on the clock to win. Struck by a rookie kicker.

Marshawn Lynch is the Raiders' version of Braith Anasta. Since he signed with the Raiders he's been worthless!!!! Bludger ran 18 yards all game against the Redskins and only got me 1 point in my fantasy league.

Fair call based on the Washington game but the whole Raider offense was awful that day including Derek Carr. Lynch has been out of the game for a year so I'm prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt. I think he'll show his worth in the second half of the season when the rustiness wears off.

Perhaps the management of the Silver & Black made Lynch buy his own Gatorade.

Lynch should have handed his pay back in for that game after that effort.

Jags are going pretty good this season so far. Wouldn't know hardly any of their players because they never get any air-time on the NFL TV coverage though.

AFC south is an interesting division this year. So far:
Jags pumped the texans
Titans pumped the jags
And the texans pumped the titans
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

I am happy with Denver's performance so far this season but Kansas will be a tough game.
I have family in Balmain and the Western suburbs so i guess that makes me a Balmain Westie

NFL seems a lot like NRL where it is the same teams fighting it year after year. Makes you wonder.
Would love to see Cleveland or Buffalo or the Jets win it sometime that would be great.

Good to see the Bengals put a couple of wins together, bringing Lazor on for Zampese has paid dividends.

Poor old Cleveland Steamers doing it tough again, and in other news water is wet.
