    For those who are fans, I think a lot of us believed the Titans could hang with Bmore. But man.... didn't expect that. Is anyone gonna be able to stop D Henry??

    I expected SF to punch Minn in their grill, and that's exactly what happened.

    The KC/Texans game seemed the 'surest thing' to me this weekend (KC), but who knows??

    I would give Seattle a chance against GB because the Packers have looked about as average as any 13-3 team in history... but the Seahawks are a mash unit at this point, so I don't give them much of a chance.

    As a Chiefs fan the Titans are now my second favorite team. If we can get past Houston today it's gonna put the AFC Championship in KC for the second straight year. Hopefully a better outcome this time. Henry's gotta run out of gas sometime right? RIGHT????

    I didn't think the Titans had a chance in heck to hang with the Ravens. A 9-7 team against the #1 seed, 14-2 team? At home? No way, right?

    The Titans really showed me something. Congratulations. Never saw that one coming.

    Last night’s game was unexpected but absolutely awesome to see.

    I typically route for the underdogs when AZ isn’t involved, except I can’t do that with Seattle tonight. I will never root for a Pete Carroll team (NFL or NCAA).

    The Titans were great and did their homework well. Henry is amazing. When the early points started I knew we were in for a rough time. It was a very hard game to watch since the Titans were beating the Ravens and the Ravens were also beating the Ravens. At home after a dream regular season too. Congrats to the Titans from a bummed Ravens fan.

    The Titans brought their A game amp and played well. I agree with the above though that the Ravens also beat the Ravens.

    Like watching a truck with a load of gasoline drive around the barriers and ALMOST beat the train. I did not expect the Titans to beat the Ravens. They didn't even need the officials to do it either.

    As a Miami fan I've been happy to see Tannehill doing well. With all the head coaching, offensive coordinator turnover and all the other chaos there he just never really got a chance to get into a groove there. Not to mention having to run for his life every week.

    So yeah, I'd love to see them get the big hardware at the end of the season. But I'm not counting on it

    I watched the first game. Minnesota vs. San Fran. Honestly...I thought it was pretty boring. I fell asleep on the second game since I’d been up since 4am, but was glad to see Baltimore lost!

    When I looked at the possibilities for this weekend's games I thought that the only sure thing was that the Ravens would win. I could believe any other outcome. I was shocked for sure but will say that was an entertaining game. Does the Derrick Henry success mean that pro football will revert back to a 1940s style of play? Everyone was willing to anoint Lamar as the prototype future football player. We see now that guys like Henry are game strategies that keep the ball away from offenses and can propel a team through the play-offs. There is more than a little Bill Belichick in Mike Vrable for sure.

    I don't usually watch football...but when I do, it is the Titans.

    I thought Baltimore was a lock to win the Superbowl this year. Totally surprised.

    That’s kinda how I saw & see it. I did think the Ravens were gonna get to the conference championship and gained respect for the Titans after last week’s game but sure didn’t expect the shellacking they delivered last night. I figured the Vikings would rattle Garoppolo far more than they did but lose no matter what.

    I think the Chiefs are more vulnerable than that huge spread indicates, and though I’m a fan I could see the Packers beaten tonight. Crazy season.

    I'm currently in Nashville right now. Lot of football spirit going on here now.

    Was pretty surprised when they won so convincingly.

    San Fran was unbelievable. The complete butt whipping they gave the Viks was a scary thing to watch for any tam that will face them. If the Titans win out, it will be awesome to see how Henry fairs against that monster D. 49'rs won by 17, but it could have been 47 for how thoroughly they dominated.

    D Henry was a joy to watch yesterday. Tannehill has really come into his own and that first TD pass was a thing of beauty. I knew it would be a good game, just thought the Ravens would be too much for them. Ravens looked flat and a step slow.... Titans looked like.... well, Titans.

    Texans/Chiefs should be a very good game too. Those two QB's are special. However, I'm really looking forward to Seattle/Green Bay. Everyone seems to think Rogers is a shadow of his former self....BS! The man is still as deadly as it gets and he scares the bejeebers out of me. Seattle is the walking wounded, but the thing I like about them is they don't care. The' next man up' mantra you hear so freely whipped about these days really means something to the Seahawks. Wilson is an all time great in my book and I'm looking forward to some big time plays. Go Hawks!

    That pretty much sums it up. At the beginning of the year we had some grate games! Lately it's like, you know what, lets have fate just toss a coin, and give the game to whoever wins the coin toss.

    Since I live in California, I was pulling for the 9ers yesterday, but for some reason every time they win a game, I think whoa, how did they do that? When they coughed up the ball just before halftime yesterday, I thought okay, they're getting ready to crap their drawers. I was pleasantly surprised to see them come back and win though. Even when they win decisively though as they did yesterday, I always feel like they just barely did.

    Only explanation is the Titans somehow entered an alternate universe, and sucked the rest of right into it! Even the Ravens!
