HO! HO! WHOA! Some of those games were awesome yesterday! Getting into the post season is serious business. There were a few games that changed the scheme of things, but there is always next week. One more week and spots will be solidified. Put on your lucky hat or whatever ritual you have to will your team to a win. Tonight is not going to be a popular game, but Denver could use the win. Here is my Monday night selection.
DENVER BRONCOS vs OAKLAND RAIDERS:
This should really be a quick pick, but let’s try to put a little substance behind it. Denver has a great defense. Case Keenum is also better equipped than Derek Carr to come out with a victory. It is not that Oakland has not had flashes of brilliance. It just that those flashes are flashes. The Oakland Project needs plenty of work to say the least. Denver woulda, coulda, shoulda. They are not contending for a playoff spot. They managed a block of wins late. They need a few pieces to put everything together again for next season. Next season. Yeah, that is what both of these teams are looking toward in a couple of weeks.
That concludes the week for me. Did your team get gifts or coal? Just a reminder that everyone is not happy around the holidays, so reach out and spend time with those who seem down. Good luck to your teams and picks. Happy holidays to all my followers. ‘Tis the season!
