Forums - Sports Discussion - The NFL Thread 2020: Tampa Bay Buccaneers win Super Bowl LV

Seems like the Chiefs' offense added the one thing they didn't have these past few years.

A running game.

24-7 for the Chiefs early in the third quarter. That's a three score difference, so I'll take sleep over whatever is left to happen.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Last time these teams met, Texans couldn't hold a three score lead for a half. Unlikely they'll run one down in that time.

I think you've earned a rest.



The Offensive Linemen were the difference on this one. On both sides.
Houston's O-line just couldn't get it together as the Chief's D-line was getting to Watson seemingly at will. On the flip side, Mahomes doesn't have a single scratch on him.



I'm honestly starting to believe that there is no defense that can stop KC from scoring less than 3 touchdowns a game. This offense is insane. Out of curiosity I checked their last season scores and they only had one game they scored less than 3 touchdowns. I kind of want them to go undefeated in the regular season. I'm looking at their schedule and Baltimore may be the only team that has a defense that can potentially stop the TD machine. I see a few strong offensive teams on the schedule, but when KC can effortlessly drop 30 points a game, a good offensive team is still not guaranteed to win against them. They have the power and speed to run away with the game, and the ability to comeback if they are in the hole.

His name escapes me, but there was a linebacker with Houston that was let go. Who's genius decision was it them go? They were definitely missing him.

Bill O'Brian. He's not a terrible coach per se, demonstrably, but some of his decisions as GM are odd, to say the least. He seems to act as much from personal dislikes as anything...

Even the best teams usually have one off-day during the regular season where just about nothing seems to work as usual.

Yes. It's extremely hard to pull off. That's why I'm hoping for it this year. This is a once in a blue moon opportunity. If any team can do it,  it's this KC team, right now. The last time I remember it happening was the 2007 Patriots, who ended up losing the SB to the NYG. The only reason I remember is because the Browns had a magical run that year. Plus I've always been a Tom Brady fan.

They had a ferocious defense for a couple years and made it to the AFC title game. They should have won it too, but they choked pretty bad late. They have Minshew at QB, he was surprisingly good last year. But they are in rebuild mode, they have traded or cut almost all of their talent. They’ll be bad on defense this year and will have to throw a ton. 

Sounds like they have their work cut out for them.  I just remember every year sportscasters always try to prop up some underdog team or whatever saying this is their year or whatever because of their draft choices or trades from previous year.  Remember last year when they hyped Baker Mayfield and the fucking Browns?  Well guess what the browns still suck and Baker Mayfield can suck a dick.  This coming from a TTU fan and Mayfield is a little bitch that went to OU cause he sucked at TTU.  I grew up in Ohio and at least I had common knowledge not to root for Ohio teams because they suck.

Been meaning to respond to this. You say the same shit every year. "oh I used to live in Ohio", "fuck the Browns", "they will never succeed" etc etc. But in reality, you sound JUST like a miserable Browns fan... a closeted one XD

For fun, I would eventually go back and pull those posts up, eventually. So please don't go back and delete them! We need them for future comic relief!
