    Only 6 times has a team ever scored over 60 points in a single game. This is only the 7th time in NFL history that this has now happened. Pretty cool I must say!!!

    I thought the Patriots did that earlier this season?

    Oh excuse me, that was their total points for the season. Sorry.

    The NFL allows no contact now, similar to soccer, so of course the scores will be higher.

    I tuned in on the radio for the first time last night when the score was 56-7. Thought a college bowl game had started early.

    All their coaches were out sick. So the Patriots were nice enough to lend both teams their coaches for the game. 😆

    I checked the score when LA had 56. how do you go from 0 points to 63 in a week?

    George Brett, Bobby Orr and Terry Bradshaw.

    We will never know if Justin Herbert is an elite quarterback or not. It’s the money ball theory. If he’s a good hitter why can’t he hit.
    If he is Staley and the Chargers are wasting some good years. How bleak is it? Correct me if I’m wrong but I read the chargers will be 70 M over the cap next year.
    Their drafting classes have been a bust.
    Looks bleak to me

    I expected Denver to be at the bottom of the AFC West this year.

    Who knew that Denver, this late in the season, would be in second place in the Division one game behind the Chiefs for first place.

    The Raiders will always be,..................................... the Raiders (beloved by their diehard fans; and scoffed at by others). The Chargers, after moving to LA from San Diego, are and will be second fiddle to the Rams (and to be honest LA is not a place where the NFL is center stage [like Philly, Pittsburg, Dallas, etc. where win or lose the team sells out]).

    It is strange that last week the Raiders did not score a point and yesterday they scored 63 points.

    Not a shock but certainly surprising. Staley is in the new wave of NFL Head Coaches that can be traced back to Bill Belichick, he's the first that I am aware of. What do they have in common ---- Sean McDermott, Kevin Stefanski, Brandon Staley, Mike Tomlin, Mike McDaniel, Bill Walsh are the ones I know of but you can add whoever you know that played some High School or NCAA football but not in the NFL. That's a weird trend.

    Certainly these men have had varying success among themselves but most generally coaches in the NFL played some pro ball before realizing they were better suited to coach than to play.

    Staley was a gambler and he seems to have been more successful at the beginning of his career. In his rookie season the Browns played the Chargers and with a 4th and 1 at their own 35 yard line Staley went for it. Cleveland was called for one of those ticky-tack Pass Interference calls, but it was a stupid gamble. That isn't the sort of thing that leads to a long stint as a HC in the NFL. I see Staley as stepping back to be a QB coach or maybe OC, but not HC for several more years.

    I've been wrong before.
