Welll...

Josh Freeman career pass completion rate = 57.6%

Cam Newton pass completion rate this year = 58.6%

Peyton Manning % this year = 59.9%



His (Freeman's) career performance means a lot less than his last years, as well as the fact that he hasn't played in two years or so.



 

Yes.  His last year was brutal.   To be fair, you sometimes see some bad play when people don't play regularly.  But that was a train wreck.

That Washington-Dallas matchup is interesting, because Washington is locked into the #4 seed and a guaranteed home game, so it can afford to rest some starters.

Washington's starters need practice more than they need rest...

There are a lot of weird scenarios this week that create interesting incentives for teams.  I haven't looked at these closely yet, but at first glance..

- If the Packers lose, they play Washington, if they win, they play Seattle.

- If the Chiefs win, they're the 3 seed, but as the 5 seed they would get to play Houston.  However, they could drop to 6 if they lose.

- How hard will New England push for the 1 seed, with their team as injured as it is?  Will they rest some banged up players?

We already know that Justin Coleman CB, Julian Edelman (foot), Jonathan Freeney (Hand), Dont'a Hightower (knee), Chandler Jones (abdomen/toe) and Sebastian Vollmer (ankle) are out for the Patriots on Sunday.  Amendola, Scott Chandler, Patrick Chung, Josh Kline, Brandon Lafell, Dmac, Siliga, and Waddle or questionable.

Ninkovich was spotted in Foxboro today, and the team left yesterday so he's probably your final inactive.  I personally don't think it'll be easy, if they win.  The O-line is fuckin hammered, still missing their top 2 safeties, their top run stuffing LB, and one of their best DE's.  I think the Dolphin's have more than a fair shot.  May sound pessimistic but, I dunno, they're pretty injured at the moment (17IR, 2PUP, 1NFI)

Amazing to me that the Broncos can win on Sunday and if NE loses, Denver gets the #1 seed. Really highlights two things. One, the defense is really amazing. Two, the AFC is really really weak.
