The Road to Superbowl 2019


Recommended Posts

The playoffs are under way. The wildcards are vying for a chance to play in the Superbowl.

Good games.

I was able to watch Dallas beat Seattle and the Chicago Bears lose to the Eagles. The Bears could have won with their final field goal attempt but their kicker missed, again! If they don't immediately sack this loser and get a proper kicker, the Bears may as well hand in their jockstraps and sell the team!!!

After the missed penalty call resulting (?) in the LA beating New Orleans....

Commissioner has authority to take action over Rams-Saints outcome, in theory

So what can the NFL do about the outcome of the Rams-Saints game? Probably nothing. Bad calls happen. Sometimes, bad calls have bigger consequences than others.

Still, there’s language in the rulebook that could, in the right circumstances, allow the Commissioner to take extreme action in the face of a grossly unfair result.

Consider Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1: “The Commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club action, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game.”

Even though Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman admits that he opted to wipe out Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis because Robey-Coleman believed he’d been beaten for a touchdown, it’s hard to imagine this being the kind of “extraordinarily unfair” act that would have a major effect on the outcome of the game. Then again, the rule is there for a reason; if ever it would be invoked, wouldn’t now be the time to do it?...

Surprisingly successful 'Madden' simulation predicts Super Bowl thriller

“Madden” has a surprisingly successful track record of predicting Super Bowl winners.

The EA Sports NFL video game has simulated Super Bowls before they happened since 2004. Ten out of 15 times it has predicted the winner.

In 2015, it picked the exact score of the New England Patriots’ 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Three years later, it picked the Patriots to come from behind to beat the Atlanta Falcons.

Madden simulates Rams in a thriller

So if that means anything to you and you’re a Los Angeles Rams fan, here’s some good news.

“Madden NFL 19” simulated a 30-27 Rams win over the Patriots on Sunday.

And the game flow reads like a reasonable path to a Rams win.

Madden predicts that Bill Belichick will hone in on the strength of the Rams by limiting Todd Gurley and forcing them to beat the Patriots elsewhere. That, of course, is Belichick’s calling card. C.J. Anderson leads the Rams with 64 rushing yards in the simulation...
