                                         SHOWING LOVE FOR THE HOMETOWN #CLEVELANDROCKS

 

    After 4 weeks, we’re starting to see some contenders for the trophy. Not only that, we are seeing some surprise teams & teams who are usually playoff potential are struggling out the gate. In last week games, we saw my Brownies becoming the Cinderalla story w/ the homegrown quarterback winning his 1st 2 starts, the Cheifs put a beatdown on the Giants leaving them 0-4 as well the Steelers, Peyton Manning throwing 4 td passes to raise his total to 16 & 0 ints, & the Dolphins not ready for prime time. Before I start the preview, I have to thank everyone for the love I got during my b-day weekend & shoutout to the hometown (216) because we’ll be rocking this sports week & we needed something like this since Lebron left.

 

Thursday

 

Buffalo vs Cleveland- If anyone would had said the Browns would be in a 3- way tie for 1st in the AFC North after trading Trent Richardson, they must be lying to themselves. I was one of the fans who was hating on the front office, but like they say, winninc cures everything. They were the only team in the divison to win a game as they defeated the Bengals last week. Brian Hoyer, the homegrown boy, has become the toast of the town, Jordan Cameron should be a pro bowler & the defense is top 5 material. For the Bills, they are 2-2, but coming off a win over the Ravens w/ their defense causing 5 ints from Joe Flacco. It’s gonna be a crazy week in the 216 w/ the Indians hosting the wild card game on Wednesday. I know Bills will be making that trip down I-90 to the game. Browns are 4 pt home faves. You already know whom I’m going for. Continue the momentum for the city

Sunday

 

Jacksonville vs St Louis- 2 teams that need a win the worst. The Jags are still winless & haven’t been competitive in any game while the Rams still have 1 win, but Sam Bradford has been regressing lately. They didn’t look good vs the 49ers last week. Someone has to win this game. The Rams are 12.5 home faes. I like the Rams, but not by that much

Kansas City vs Tennessee – Both teams are coming off wins, but the Titans’ win came w/ a big loss. They will have to go 4-6 weeks w/o Jake Locklear after he hurt his hip. The Chiefs are the surprising 4-0 team this yr & they already own the NFC East going 3-0 against them after spanking the Giants, despite committing their 1st 2 turnovers in that game. How the Titans would do w/out Locklear is a big question. The Chiefs are 2.5 road faves. I like the Chiefs in a close game as wel

Baltimore vs Miami- The Dolphins, even though they lost last night vs the Saints, shouldn’t be ashamed of themselves. Tannerhill looked good except for the turnovers he lost early in the 1st half. For the Ravens, which team would show up & are they done crying bout Goodell having something to do w/ the blackout at the Super Bowl (we heard you T-Sizzle & dumb penalty by you slamming E.J. Manuel). Will they feed Ray Rice the ball? It’s gonna be a defensive affair. Let’s hope Cameron Wake returns for the Dolphins this game. The Dolphins are fg home fave. I like the Dolphins & the spread.

Philadelphia vs N.Y. Giants- Normally, when these two teams meet up early in the season, they are in the race for the NFC East. However, both teams are struggling & are a combined 1-7. They were both popped in the mouth by AFC West teams (Eagles by Broncos while the Chiefs smacked the Giants. Both coaches are on the hot seat & another loss will have that fanbase shaking their heads. The Giants are a pt home fave. I like the G-Man by a td.

New Orleans vs Chicago- The Saints & Drew Brees are giving the Broncos a run for their money as who has the best offense in the NFL. Last night, Brees had over 300 yds passing w/ 3 tds & Darren Sproles was the darling of fantasy owners like myself. The Bears had too many turnovers in their loss to the Lions & Bad Jay Cutler showed up. The Bears defense, especially the secondary will be tested this game. It’s a pick’em game, but I like rhe Saints in this game.

Randy:

 

New England vs Cincinnati- The Pats had to hold off a last minute drive by the Falcons. Before that, Tom Brady was making receivers like Kendrell Thompskins. However, no more Vince Wilfork as he torn his acl & is done for the yr. big blow for them. The Bengals were mandhandled defensively by the Browns in the battle of Ohio last week. Where was A.J. Green? Joe Haden was on his ass!! I think he’ll have a bounce back game on Aqib Talib. Another pick’em game here. I like the Pats to continue the woes for the Bengals.

Detroit vs Green Bay- The Lions are riding high after their win over the Bears last game. Ndamukong Suh lead that defense to make bad Jay Cutler show up & Reggie Bush looked like he was back in SC (speaking of the Trojans, they did Kiff dirty). The Packers are coming off their bye week & they needed because they had players like Eddie Lacy & Clay Matthews banged up. They hoped they have them back this game. The Packers are 7.5 home faves. I know the Lions have the weapons to score w/ the Packers, but I can’t see them winning in Lambeau Field. I like the Packers by a td.

Seattle vs Indianapolis- The Seahawks came back from a 20-3 defecit to defeat the Texans in ot. It was also Russell Wilson’s 1st win on the road vs a playoff team. The Colts had a slow start vs Jacksonville, but cranked up at the end to get the win. BTW, another 3 yd avg game for Trent Richardson. He needs a breakout game to prove Irsay that they made the right move to trade for the guy. It’s also Luck vs Wilson. The Seahawks are 2.5 road faves. I like the Hawks by a fg.

Randy:

 

Carolina vs Arizona- The Panthers are coming off their bye week & hoping to have an identity w/ this team. The Cards had to claw & scratch to come back & win vs Tampa Bay. In that game, Patrick Peterson made a case to be in the discussion w/ Richard Sherman & Joe Haden for best cornerback in the league. It may come down to whether Cam Newton or Carson Palmer makes the less mistakes in the game. The Cards are 1.5 pt home fave. I like the Cards by a fg

Denver vs Dallas- The Broncos are the talk of the league along w/ New Orleans, New England, & Seattle. All I got to say is this: Peyton Manning w/ 16 tds & 0 ints so far this season. He makes everything look good for them. All those weapons ( a lil help w/ the running back by committee) & when they get Champ Bailey & Von Miller back to compliment the defense, they’re set, For the Cowboys, another Romo meltdown in San Diego & you never know which Cowboys team would show up week to week.  The Broncos are 8.5 road faves. I like the Broncos to win in Jerry World by a td. For my buddy Leticia Roginson, if you think you had it easy w/ the bet you lost to your boyfriend, I can’t wait to see you in a Broncos’ foam hat.

Houston vs San Francisco- A tough week for the Texans. For the 1st half, Matt Schaub was shredding up the Seahwaks’ secondary & they had a 20-3 lead. In the 2nd half, the momentum shift & Kubiak decided to be conseratitive. Throwing on downs when he need Arian Foster or Ben Tate to gain short yardage and Schaub throwing off his backfoot & getting intercepted by Richard Sherman resulting in a pick 6. It got worse in ot. Karriem Jacskon bodyslamming a Seahawks player after a reception got them in fg range & they lose. Outside Reliant Stadium, they were burning schaub’s jersey & already talking bout benching him & playing T.J. Yates. The 49ers should thank the Rams. They were the opponent they needed to shake their skid. Kaepernick looked like the guy we saw last yr & Frank Gore woke up. They’ll still won’t have Patrick Willis w/ them as he’s dealing w/ his drug rehab. Expect a lot of defense in this game. The 49ers are 7.5 home faves. I like the 49ers & the spread.

San Diego vs Oakland- The final game on Sunday night & it gets a late start because of the A’s playoff game on Saturday night. The stadium was talking bout it would take 24 hrs to transform the field from baseball to football. It sucks that the Raiders are the only team to share a stadium w/ a baseball team. The Raiders are hoping that they will have Terrelle Pryor behind center this game after a last minute scratch to bench him. The Chargers & Phillip Rivers surprised me by beating the Cowboys & Antonio Gates was the primary target of Rivers passes. It’s an divisional battle, so no long love lost & expect a lot of late hits. The Charegers are 4 pt road faves. I like the Chargers by a td.

Monday

 

N.Y. Jets vs Atlanta- Both teams need wins the worst way. The Jets were embarrassed (what was up w/ that behind the back fumble Geno Smith) in Tennessee & they also found out that Mark Sanchez will opt foe surgery, meaning his season & probably Jets’ career is over. Geno Smith doesn’t have to look over his shoulder wondering if Matt Simms will be next man up. For the Falcolns, another close loss last week despite Tony Gonzalez being targeted by Matt Ryan a lot because Roddy White was hampered by an injury & Julio Jones had his work cut out for him. It also hurts that Steven Jackson isn’t availibel for the Falcolns. The Falcolns are 10 pt home faves. This has to be the Dirty Birds’ breakout game. I like ATL by 14.

Happy b-day shoutouts to Rossana Bianchi, Lisa Franco Mendoza, Ruben Benitez, Julie Serafin, & last but not least, Lauren Macias.

Shoutout to everyone who help me celebrate my b-day once again last week. For the hometown (Cleveland), let’s make this week memorable. Go Browns & Tribe. Catch y’all on the next blog. Peace!!
