NFL Notes And Questions Part 1

January 19, 2018

I do not know how, nor why, the CBS broadcast of the Pats’ win vs the Steelers, in which an apparent and called touchdown catch by Jesse James of “Pitts” was nullified by replay, made no reference to the fact the same happened regarding an apparent touchdown pass to James, in last year’s title tilt between the teams.

In last week’s slot 1 game at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, matching the homestanding Eagles and Atlanta Falcons, there was a richochet type play, in some way similar to the Franco Harris game winning touchdown in the Steelers’ first ever slots/division round/NFL quarterfinal, 45 years earlier also in slot 1.

Reference was made to the play being in the same state (actually commonwealth). How about citing the fact that the two Pennsylvania home teams, the Eagles (4-0) and Steelers (12-1), entered the slots weekend in which each would host such a game, with an incredible combined record of (16-1) in such/home slots games?!


In slots/NFL divisional round/”quarters,” the Pennsylvania teams home record rose to (17-1) after the Eagles win vs Atlanta.

The big upset by win by “Jax” at Pitts lowered that still incredible record to (17-2). It was in an “Eagle” Ian)game, that the great Eagles/Steelers home “div round” record took a bit of a hit, likely but far from definitely, continuing the “paving” job for another New England “Supe” appearance.
