WEEK 15 TNF: LOS ANGELES CHARGERS vs KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

I am so ashamed that I continue to choose Carolina every week! I guess I am a glutton for punishment. To get things started, my record last week was 10-6. There was no way I was expecting both New England and Pittsburgh to lose. Geez! Again, the theme for this week is WIN. If you want to extend your season, winning is the key. Hoping that other teams lose is another key. LOL! You have seen all of the scenarios by now. This is one of those games tonight that will be decisive in the post season. Get my thoughts on the game below.

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS vs KANSAS CITY CHIEFS:

Okay, this will be a game that has major implications for the Chargers. They will clinch a playoff berth. The Chiefs are looking to get home field advantage as well. A lot at stake here on both ends. Who will get their wish? This is going to be a tough one to choose. Los Angeles has been hot. They are 10-3. Kansas City is sitting at 11-2. Not much difference in these teams. The Chiefs lost Kareem Hunt and will have Tyreek Hill back for this game. How will that translate for the Chiefs offense? It brings a target back for Patrick Mahomes to throw to. Los Angeles has a healthy group of players around the veteran Phillip Rivers. Melvin Gordon and Keenan Allen are popular targets for the experienced quarterback. Will it be the back and forth like the Chiefs and Rams? Not really. Do not look for the high scoring of that game to be present in this one. A toss up is what this game might end up being. If the Chargers can get on track early and not let the game get away, they come away with the win.

First pick of the week is in. Tell me what you think. It will definitely be a good one. Good luck to your teams and picks!

WEEK 14 MNF: MINNESOTA VIKINGS vs SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

Let’s not even talk about yesterday’s games. A lot of teams should be still walking home, I know that. Almost every game was close. Was Oakland the biggest surprise win or was it Carolina losing yet again? A couple of teams have secured their slots for the post season. Was one of them yours? Tonight, these two squads are hoping to move on as well. This is my insight on how I see the last game of the week.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS vs SEATTLE SEAHAWKS:

If any two teams needed a win this week, it would definitely be either one of these teams tonight. The Vikings cannot seem to stay consistent. They let the Patriots get the best of them last week. It could be that their offense has been figured out. Unfortunately, the VIkes defense is not quite what it used to be and is letting teams hang around too long. Seattle is keeping their heads above water. With a not so great defense to speak of and an offense depending on Russell Wilson too much, the Seahawks are still trying to extend their season. The difference between the two teams is that the ‘Hawks thrive in adverse situations. Minnesota has not fared well in those types of games. Injuries are plaguing the Vikings as well. Although the game should be a good one to watch, it will ultimately been won by the team that knows how to deal with being in a desperate situation.

Seattle Seahawks



This is my last best guess for the week. How did you do? Football gets so exciting at this time of the year. The weather changes. Each game becomes a WIN situation. Absolutely the best time of year. Good luck to your teams and picks!

WEEK 14 TNF: JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS vs TENNESSEE TITANS

There are only a few games left in the regular season and I swear the way some teams are playing makes me not want to pick any more. GRRR!!! But, I will forge on because I do love the game. For those keeping track, I went 9-7 last week. Tonight’s game is not the most looked forward to game of the week. The Jags managed to get a hard fought win over Indy last week, so the potential for this game to be good is there. Here is my take on the action.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS vs TENNESSEE TITANS:

Honestly, how the Jaguars beat Indy last week is beyond words. They shut them out too! Ok, there should be no contest for the Titans to take advantage of a flailing team. In order to keep their playoff hopes alive, they need to win. There is no competition between Blake Bortles and Marcus Mariota. Even with the return of Leonard Fournette for the Jags, it will not be enough to overcome the play of the Titans. The Titans are on a mission to make it to the post season. Coach Mike Vrabel is making all the right moves with the offense. Jacksonville will be looking towards the season ending and making changes for next season.

Tennessee Titans



That is it for me tonight, folks. These next few weeks should be good with the playoffs in sight. Good luck to your teams and picks!

WEEK 13 MNF: WASHINGTON REDSKINS vs PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

I throw my hands up! Those games yesterday were unbelievable. Carolina…again! Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Chicago, and Green Bay just killed me! On top of that, they fired Mike McCarthy. I hope this brings the change we’re looking for at Lambeau. Nothing amazes me week to week. This is why we watch the game. Here is the last game of the week. A divisional battle between the Redskins and Eagles. Cross your fingers I can get this one right.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS vs PHILADELPHIA EAGLES:

The fact that Colt McCoy is starting for the Redskins brings a challenging dynamic for the team. Where Alex Smith protected the ball, Colt McCoy does not. In order for any offense to work, especially Washington’s, turnovers need to be kept to a bare minimum. On the road, this will be an undertaking. Carson Wentz is fairing a bit better and has the wherewithal to carry his team like he did last week. The Eagles are not screaming success right now, but the defense will be able to have their way with the Redskins. If that is the case, Wentz will be able to make it happen on offense. Both teams need the win, so look for a hard fought game under the lights.

Philadelphia Eagles


That is it folks! Hope you finished the week better than I did. The final weeks are upon us. The games are even more meaningful now. Good luck to your teams and picks!

WEEK 13 TNF: NEW ORLEANS SAINTS vs DALLAS COWBOYS

Again last week with a few of those games!! Carolina again……REALLY? I believe that some of these teams are trying to play “spoiler” early. LOL. I went 10-5, so I am on track a little. The race is definitely on for the post-season. A win here on Thursday night for the Dallas Cowboys could keep their playoff hopes alive. Could they pull out a victory over a team that is simply on fire? Let me see if I can put it into perspective.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS vs DALLAS COWBOYS:

What can be said that has not already been said about Drew Brees and the outstanding cast of players he has around him? Brees is on track for the MVP award. Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, and Mark Ingram, Jr. are a major part of him being in the running for that award. Dallas will try to counteract that with Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott. Jason Garrett seems to have found how to use Cooper more effectively in the offense. Garrett has also learned his lesson and has started to “feed” Zeke. Not sure if Marshon Lattimore will be covering Cooper, but that will be an exciting match up inside the game. It will be the Saints defense that the Cowboys will have to contend with. Even if they can find a way to compete, Dak Prescott will not be able to keep up with the gunslinger, Brees. Dallas will not make it easy for New Orleans, but in the end an upset is not going to happen.

New Orleans Saints

I do not doubt that this will be a fairly exciting game. Dallas is battling for respect in the NFC East, but New Orleans is battling for football world dominance. How do you see the end result? Let me know. Good luck to your teams and picks!

WEEK 12 MNF: TENNESSEE TITANS vs HOUSTON TEXANS

This will be an interesting Monday night game. Only because you never know which Titans team will show up. Tennessee still has a chance for the post-season, but it will depend on whether or not they can get past the super hot Houston Texans. Here is what I think.

Football-Isolated-On-Field-Grass-Spotlight-Shadow.jpg

TENNESSEE TITANS vs HOUSTON TEXANS:

Tennessee has a few things hindering them tonight. The biggest being Marcus Mariota’s injured elbow. If he cannot finish the game, this leads to their second hinderance, Blaine Gabbert. IF this is the Titans team that rolled over New England a couple of weeks ago, this will surely be a battle. If not the super hot Houston Texans will steamroll right over them. Houston has won seven straight. Firing on all cylinders is an understatement at this point for the Texans. There does not seem to be a place on the field that the Texans are lacking in at this point. If there is a spot, J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney are covering it. Tennessee will have to play a flawless and smart game to get up on Houston.

HOUSTON TEXANS


How did everyone do with their picks this week? I will have to admit this was another one of those crazy weeks. Hope everyone watched some great football. Good luck to your teams and picks!
