Re: Vancouver #1 for the worst traffic congestion in Canada

Re: 2017-18 NFL Season Thread

Seahawks dodged a bullet with a 16-10 win over the Rams. While the Seahawks defence were good by forcing several turnovers, the final Rams drive with 1:09 remaining and no timeouts was inexcusable and to allow the Rams to almost complete a game-winning touchdown. More work definitely needs to be don...

I would not have expected this to be a good game a couple of weeks ago, but now it just might be. The Packers are crippl...
