- Got Tobias on the cut.

MINTY BETS: The Vikings and the Bills engaged in one hell of a football game. And to say it came down to the wire is an understatement.

- Oh my. My poor heart.

MINTY BETS: Here's the recipe to maybe the most exciting finish ever. First, a failed fourth down conversion by the Vikings on the goal line followed by a Josh Allen fumble recovered for a touchdown to put the Vikings up 3, followed by a Josh Allen drive to kick a field goal to send the game into overtime, followed by a Vikings field goal, and then a Josh Allen interception to end the game.

- Holy smokes. That's it.

MINTY BETS: Sunday served up plenty of drama to go around. Last week, the Colts named former offensive lineman Jeff Saturday as their head coach. And the fact Saturday had zero NFL coaching experience had a lot of people all up in their feelings, like former Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas.

JOE THOMAS: When you hire your drinking buddy to be the head coach of an NFL football team, it is one of the most disrespectful things I've ever seen in my entire life to the commitment, the lifestyle, and the experience that it takes to be an NFL coach, any coach, much less the head coach of the Indianapolis football Colts.

MINTY BETS: He's not wrong. And I was totally on team Thomas until Saturday silenced the haters as the Colts beat the Raiders in his coaching debut. Now Joe Thomas was just doing his job as an analyst for the NFL Network. But Jeff Saturday is officially undefeated as a head coach. And Joe has been getting trolled hard on Twitter, like with this gem from former Colt punter, Pat McAfee. Only in retirement can a punter go after a lineman. Got to love it.

At the end of the day, no matter how you feel about the qualifications of Saturday, he already looks the part. This man has been a head coach for like a week. And he already looks like a freaking zombie. But most importantly, he seems to have already won over the locker room.

JEFF SATURDAY: Everybody gets a game ball. And my favorite thing about football, victory Monday. We'll see y'all [INAUDIBLE].

MINTY BETS: We have no idea how Saturday's tenure as the Colts head coach will go. But at least for one week, Saturday is undefeated on Sundays.

MILEY CYRUS: So far, so good.

MINTY BETS: Cristiano Ronaldo might be the best representation of the diva superstar that we have. In an interview with Piers Morgan of all people, Ronaldo ripped his current team, Manchester United. He criticized his manager and coaching staff, suggesting no one wants him at United.

PIERS MORGAN: They're trying to force you out.

CRISTIANO RONALDO: Yes, not only to coach, but the other two or three guys there around the club.

PIERS MORGAN: At the senior executive level.

CRISTIANO RONALDO: Yes. That I felt betrayed.

MINTY BETS: Wow. That's a high level of paranoia. The coaching staff must have done something awful to Crissy, right? Apparently, manager Erik ten Hag wanted Ronaldo to come off the bench as a substitute during United's 2 nil win over Tottenham. And Ronaldo refused.

- What a guy.

MINTY BETS: So Ronaldo refused to follow his manager's orders and then claims everyone is against him? Need we remind him he's 37 years old and his best playing days are behind him? Somebody get this man a reality check.
