We are basically assured of a playoff spot... And more importantly, Armstead played well. He's a rookie, he's gonna get beat by moves he hasn't seen. But for the most part he did his job well and will only get better. Our running game looked good (finally). We'll be fine. We'll beat whoever we play in the first round, and I think we'll beat Carolina again in Carolina if Payton gets his head out of his ***. This loss was squarely on him and his poor play calling. Stop being so damn negative all the time.
The only major downside to this game is losing Vaccaro for the year (which forced Harper into coverage and we could have told you how that would work out before it happened). If Rafael Bush comes back, he'll play that role better than Harper does, but losing Vaccaro is huge.
