T’aint fair! The NFL giveth with the one hand and taketh away with the other. AS ALWAYS! Hey, as long as I’m shouting… TO THE GAMES!
Not a lot to like here. I’d just like to add-poor Joe Mixon. Poor, poor Joe Mixon.
The hits keep coming. What’s the over/under here-14.5? Matt Barkley is not an NFL qb by any means and there are rumblings the Tennessee head office feels the same about Mariota. The end result? A run-heavy Gore (maybe Singletary?) and Henry grinder. Fade to black Corey Davis. And while you’re at it do the same to te Delanie-the Bills have given up 76 yards all season to the position.
There are plenty of kudos out there for te Waller but the fella is looked at between the 20’s and not at all in the end zone. This is not an exaggeration-he doesn’t have a single look yet.
Tampa has a good overall D but defending the slot is an on-going problem. Since the beginning of last year they’ve given up the second-most yards, completions and TD’s. Guess who grades out as the best slot receiver over the last three years? Yeah, that’d be one Michael Thomas. Shaquil Barrett and his nine sacks has an interesting matchup vs. tackles Armstead and Ramczyk, who have not given up a sack yet.
Minny just barely avoids the dreaded Saquon-sanity showdown. This one is a real, actual test for Danny Ten Cent, given the pressure up front and cb Howard’s tendency to take players out of the game. (though he did get burned last week or the week before, I don’t remember and I’m running out of time)
Philly is completely exploitable at the wr spot and Anderson/Crowder are above average, but then one must add Luke Falk into the equation and just like that it all falls apart.
As I said, I’m running out of time. This should have been up two hours ago.
Another walk in the park W for New England is on the sked. Qu’elle surprise! Washington’s point total has gone souther and souther-from 27 to 21 to 15 to 3. I’ve a notion what the next number up is.
Bettors have no doubt noticed that Minshew is 3-0 vs. the spread but he now faces the only D that allows less than 200 yards thru the air. This is not the week to go Full Mustache Ride.
Lingering memories from last year tell me that Houston has an above-average D but when you actually peruse the numbers they’re in the 24-ish range. Same but the t’udder way with the Falcons-they’re knocking on top 10 status.
There she be. Why don’t you catch some Other Football while you wait for the games to commence?
