 Apparently there will no suspensions from this game, but some fans are being identified and will be punished for their actions... if they aren't season ticket holders they will be banned from attending games, and if they are their tickets will be revoked indefinitely.

Brady and Co. looked human tonight losing to the Dolphins.  Without Gronk in the lineup, they are a different team.  Lots of injuries they have had this year as Gruden points out.

Noone should throw anything at players...
That said..
They are making too much of a big deal about it. 
I'm not sure anyone here will point the couple..or 1 person who threw stuff they say 4 on the news but not showing 4 things thrown just 2. (I only seen replays on local news) 

But not the first time nor will be the last something thrown from the stands...

The bigger story is the Jags have a winning record after sucking for so long

 I haven't seen any stories about the Jags' winning record, just what happened on Sunday. Jags lead their division and will likely make the playoffs, but the idiocy last Sunday is what most will remember.

...jags winning record, ppffft, whatever...no one is making it out of the AFC this year unless your colours are black and yellow and your helmet has one sticker...
There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark.

...jags winning record, awesome...no one is making it out of the AFC this year unless your colours are black and teal and your helmet has two colors..
:P

Excellent write-up on Bortles, coming into his own this year.

Blake Bortles has elevated his game, making Jaguars a legit threat to the Patriots
Bortles was one of the league's worst QBs last season; recently, he's been one of the most consistent

Honestly Harvey and Irma have made me so incredibly busy that I have not really watched any sports in months... So I couldn't really say who's good or not just catch the odd score and highlights off the news or on a message board.

The Jags are no super bowl contender but its nice to see them win for a change.

But hey upsets happen they could pull it off

Quite the game between New England and Pittsbugh. Totally lived up to the hype with a thrilling finish including a controversial call in the dying seconds with a touchdown called back - that cost the Steelers the game.  

And my Bills are hanging in there. Still in a playoff spot for at least one more week in the wildcard spot at 8 - 6.  Two road games to finish the season though including at the Pats next week - so not expecting them to hold on to the playoff spot - but still pretty good for what was supposed to totally be a rebuilding season under a new rookie coach.

I totally enjoyed the Rams win over Seattle.

I totally enjoyed the Rams win over Seattle.
Total beatdown by Rams. Was good to see.

Pittsburgh and Patriots played down to the wire and made it a very entertaining game. Roethlisberger shouldn’t have thrown that ball for the pic, but it is what it is.
And for the record, the nullified TD was the right call. Two things happened: knee was down and ball was being bobbled = no TD. That seemed to knock the wheels off for Pittsburgh.

The more I re-watch that play, more apparent it becomes that it was the right call.
Was a great game.

Agree with this writer, that the ref probably got the call right makes the NFL rule on this even more stupid.  A great game no question but a dumb rule to take excitement out of the game:

The NFL rule book is so, so stupid, and that's the nicest thing we can say about it


Quote
The NFL, which will make $14 billion this year, let two terrible rules determine important football games. But sure, at least they were fair.

What makes these plays infuriating is that referees probably got them right. James does appear to lose control of the football, and if the receiver can’t control the ball through the ground then the NFL rulebook is very clear that that is an incomplete pass. There is a fair argument that there wasn’t indisputable evidence that James lost the football, but I understand why refs made the determination they did.
Quote
But yes, the NFL rulebook is fair and fine. It may be stupid — so, so stupid — but at least it’s an indiscriminate stupid; one that splatters stupid upon everything like a haywire sprinkler. And we can all point at that sprinkler and pretty much agree that it’s stupid, so at least the NFL’s brand of stupid fosters solidarity.

And for making extra efforts, both players were disproportionately punished. Both could have tucked the ball and fallen around the 1-yard line, putting their teams in great positions to win. Instead, by doing the very things that coaches, fans, and the sport itself encourage them to do, they hastened losing efforts.

That’s where we are: The NFL is so big, and dumb, and wearying that “indiscriminately stupid” has become the nicest way it can describe itself.
