It's amazing how much luck the Cowboys have and the Jaguars lack. Watching Jacksonville, I can always count on at least one astonishingly bad officiating call that hurts them in a significant way. That's not why they lose, but it doesn't help a flailing franchise when the bad calls aren't evening out.

Last night Dallas gets three lucky breaks with officiating: Elliot's reversed fumble, Minnesota's punt return fumble and the non-call on the Bradford head slap on the game's final play.

I don't think the Jags have had a single game where things broke that well. They had a touchdown run where the ball broke the goal line called a fumble into the end zone. I think three touchdowns have been lost on review so far in 2016.

Looks like they're having trouble selling out the MAC title game tonight -- my spouse just got four tickets for free at work.

That's 'cause Central Michigan isn't playing. You let the Chips play and BAM! it's Fire Up Chips time.

Dammit, babysitter flaked. Spouse grew up in Kalamazoo, so I get to stay home with the toddler.

Aaand no parking near Ford Field. So we're all watching it on The Deuce.
