Nervous as hell for tomorrows game !

Raiders need to win first, then need Denver to lose (To win the AFC West) or they'll stand a chance for a wildcard as long as either Cincy or Tenn lose and the Jets win (weird tiebreaker)

First of all i just want Oakland to win and go 9-7, would be incredible after the last crappy 8 years i've had. But if they can sneak a playoff spot or even win the division if the hated Chiefs do us a favour, i'll be over the moon

Yep, really exciting end to the season with all kinds of possibilities, ifs and maybes. I don't know what to expect from the Jets at Miami.. .. apparently the stats say the Jets have it(!), but I've heard that one before this season! I just hope the Jets win then it depends on what happens elsewhere. It's going to be a roller coaster ride.

I'm a bit peeved at Game Pass. Week 16 Giants @ Jets game is still blacked out! AND Jets @ Dolphins is blacked out this weekend FFS! I'll have to find other means of watching. :twisted:

Well its not Gamepasses fault, its Sky. Can see why they do it though but yeah frustrating.

I'm just glad the Raiders are still in it this late in the year, been a long time since this has happened. But cant wait for tonight, i hope i'll be happy at 1am in the morning !

You're right about Sky. I joined NFLUK forum and asked if anyone knew why the blacked-out Jets game was still not available. Seems Sky manually unblock the games and from the sounds of things forgot to unblock them. Although the mistake appears to be with Sky I pay NFL for Game Pass so I expect to get what I pay for. Black-outs are a nonsense and, from what I have read, it's only the uk that have them imposed on us.

Right, onwards to kickoff! Good luck getting the results you needs!

Well the last few years theyve had blackouts on Gamepass due to the Sky games, annoying thing is this year theres about a 4 game delay till you can watch them on Gamepass which is annoying. To be fair to Gamepass it did mention the black out games in their terms/conditions when you sign up, but yeah annoying

Anyway got Gamepass on now, got BB/NE on one side and Hou/Tenn on the other. Hoping for some good results !

Actually going to really miss Gamepass after this weekend, back to Sky after that and all the playoff games on TV

I read in the t&c's about the black-outs so I was aware they'd be a factor. That's fine in the sense that it was explicit. My annoyance is at the delay in unblocking and also that Sky get to black-out the Jets 2 weeks in a row. Most annoying!!!

**Score spoilers ahoy**

Jets are up at the moment and are looking ok, but I'm not confident of the W yet! Tennessee are 3pts up at Houston.... c'mon Houston!

Houston just levelled at 13 all. :D

God damn, was a great start today with NE getting battered, now theyre coming right back

Jets are making me super nervous as well. Arrrgh ! Plus i can see Tenn winning, that means Oakland cant get a wildcard if it says as it is. Need to beat SD and Denver to lose

I know you shouldnt rely on other teams but --- gutted !

Houston get a late fumble, drive downfield, get the td, instead of going for overtime they go for the 2 pointer to win it. This one play means if Houston win Oakland only need a win to make the playoffs, Houston mess up and Tennessee win so gutted !

Oakland now need to win (possible) but Denver have to lose (cant see it)

As for the other games...

Wanted the Jets to win to keep Oakland in the playoff hunt but they royally messed up. Sanchez will have a long long offseason, biggest game for the Jets and Sanchez was awful. Also gutted NE won, were 21-0 down but came back

Oh well, come on Raiders, want a winning record at least, here we go, live on Gamepass.

The Jets game was exciting but ultimately disappointing. Gutted, but hey! I got the Tennessee score so the Jets loss is academic, although losing at the Dolphins is never a good thing for Jets fans.

You never know psj! KC are 7 up! Damn NE are annoying! Still, so long as they're in the playoffs I always have a team to support.... any team they're playing against! :lol:

KC looking like they'll be 10 - 0 up at halftime. Shout at the Raiders louder, fella!

Edit: Maybe not! I thought they were in Denver territory. 7 - 0 it is.

Nightmare first half by Oakland, to be fair take away a frickin kick return by SD and its closer.

But disappointing, all week learn heard the hype and as always the defense is so poor.
