It’s Bizzaro World or NFL Week 15
So far we’ve played 14 games to eliminate 11 teams from the playoffs. It’s almost like hockey. There some huge matchups with high stakes this weekend. Let’s take a look:
Eagles (+3) over the Giants. Loser of this game plays for a wild card that may not come their way. The Eagles are 9-0 in games when they’ve had at least one play of 40 yards (they’re 0-4 games without the big play). Want another stat? The underdog is 10-2 ATS the last 12 meetings. Also Philadelphia has beaten the Giants 5 of the last 6, and Eli likes to throw picks against a defense that leads the league in INTs. Fly Eagles Fly
Jacksonville (+5) Over the Colts. Loser in this game is most likely playing golf in January. It’s the kind of game Payton usually wins, right? Not this week. Too many question marks at Wide out, and an under performing running game. They had the cowboys dead to rights, but managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory thanks to Payton’s 4 picks. Big cats in this one.
Pittsburgh (-7) over Jets. Fireman Ed may not be happy with me, but this is a must win game the Jets need. Don’t worry, they won’t get it. Rex Ryan was openly talking about benching his quarterback. Not the stuff of champions. Right now your AFC championship game looks like the Patriots and Steelers. The Jets on the other hand need to get it together, San Diego is closing fast. To bad this is not the Jets’ week. I.C.’s all around.
Saints (+1) over Ravens. Both teams are second in their division. Both teams need to win. Both teams could still blow it and find them selves out in three weeks. Those implosions usually start with games like this. Ray Lewis can only will victory so many times. Pull out the parasols. The Saints are marchin’.
Chiefs (pick) over Rams. All the trends point to the Rams. This is purely a gut pick. Every year since the 8 division format 3 teams that finished in last place the previous year finish first. This year the Chiefs are one of those teams.
Make something warm for Sunday and relax. The snow will wait
