Move the Referee back! Or NFL Week 13
When the league moved the umpire from the middle of the field it created a void of sanity. How many missed penalties have you seen this year? I mean really obvious facemasks, pass interference calls, Helmet to Helmet hits that were really shoulder to shoulder…enough is enough! I know the league wants to protect players, and I’m all for it! But players run a greater risk of catastrophic injuries when they are indecisive. Let them play! And move the umpire back to the middle of the field where he belongs.
Let’s pick some games:
Redskins (+7) Over Giants. The Giants have to not swoon in December for me to believe it. Also the Redskins cover on the road, 6-2-1 ATS their last 9. Hail to the Redskins…Hail victory! Onward we triumph! Fight for old DC!
Bengals (+7) Over Saints. No, I’m not drunk. I understand the Bengals (soon to be again known as bungles) are an underperforming mess. But I also know the Saints are notorious for playing down to the competition, covering just once in their last 8 against teams with losing records. It’s cold and the Saints are on the road. So let’s Bungle in the Jungle…..
Jaguars (+3 ½) over Titans. After snatching defeat from the jaws of victory against the Giants last week, the Jaguars roar into Tennessee. If only the Titans had Davey Crocket. The Titans have covered only 3 of their last 13 against teams with winning records, while the Jaguars hace covered 11 of their last 12 in week thirteen. That’s crack research. Spells a win for the big cats.
Colts (-5) over Cowboys. Van you see a playoff without Payton Manning? Really? I can’t. Jerry Jones ahs already shredded the roster for next year. Someone forgot to tell them they are still playing for jobs. Colts here.
Ravens (-3) over Steelers. A December game we all wait for. It’s the kind of game the Steelers usually find a way to win. I just don’t like Big Ben’s Broken foot. The Money line favors the Ravens. So do I.
There’s your five.
