Jax @ NO: If you’re a fan of invisible D’s have I got a game for you. Both of these teams have racked up a 50 spot this year. Over the last five games combined these teams have averaged 27 points per game. RB Yeldon is out so Denard Robinson goes once again. Pro Bowl snub WR Robinson, he of the 1100+ yds. and 13 TD’s just might go off today. Of course, I say that about any talented catcher of balls playing against the Saints secondary. QB Brees will play with a torn painter fascist (Gerardo Dottori?)-not sure how mobile he’ll be but I’m also not sure of how much pressure the Jags DL will be able to exert.
StL @ Sea: Who knew that QB Wilson would be able to back up his words with actions? Since wk.11 he’s been the best completion-, yards per attempt- TD- and QBR-wise. That’s some sagely play on his part. By far his most heroic feat though has been temporarily transforming WR Baldwin into something not resembling a regrettable draft pick. The Rams looked to be something early in the season but reality has a way of catching up to everyone. (Donald Trump excluded) DT Aaron Donald has been a force for the D throughout for the Rams and Wilson may want to keep an eye out lest he become another sack statistic.
GB @ Ari: The Pack do have 10 wins at this point but they have come at the expense of the Chargers, the Lions X2, the Cowboys, the 49ers and the Seahawks/Chiefs before they got their collective shit together. To be fair, they did beat the Broncs and Panthers though. By beat I mean not beat. Over the last 8 weeks the Cards have only been tested by the Vikes, Seahawks and Bengals. The old standby “playoff atmosphere” may be bandied about a fair bit during this game. You have been warned.
