                                      We feel you Ray Lewis!! this was a legal hit in our opinion

 

 

           How’s my football fans doing out there? We have 5 more weeks left in the season & it’s starting to get good. Last week, we saw Andre Johnson walk out on his team during their loss, the 49ers shooting themselves in the foot in New Orleans, the Broncos knocking the Chiefs from the unbeaten & the Pats/ Panthers game ending in controversy. I wonder what’s in store for the stretch run of the season. Let’s talk week 12 shall we.

 

Thursday

 

New Orleans vs Atlanta- Round 2 of this NFC South battle. The Saints won the 1st battle in week 1 in the Superdome. The Saints are coming off a crazy win over the Niners in which the 49ers found ways to kill themselves to lose down the sretch. They need all the wins because the Panthers are on their path. For the Falcons, the disappointing season continues for them as they were Tampa’s 2nd victim last week. Matt Ryan’s struggling & I feel bad for Gonzalez #hecamebackforthis. The Saints are 7.5 road faves. I like the Saints to sweep the head-to head & cover.

Sunday

 

Tampa Bay vs Detroit- The Bucs are on a mini streak after getting their 2nd win of the season last week vs the Falcons. I guess they got tired of the losing & need something to cheer their fans up. For the Lions, they’re coming off a loss in Pittsburgh in which they had the lead & Schwartz’s answering questions bout his faked fg attempt in the 4th qtr & they were up by 4 w/ 12 mins left in the game. I know he’s a risk taker, but you don’t leave points on the field. Lions still have the Bears & Packers breathing down their necks in the NFC North. Lions are 9.5 home faves. I like the Lions in a close game.

Minnesota vs Green Bay-  Both teams are coming off losses. The Vikings were smacked in the mouth by the Seahawks in Seattle  while the Packers haven’t been the same since Aaron Rodgers got hurt & losing to the Giants are hurting their slim hopes for the postseason. W/ the Vikings w/ only 2 wins, someone popped off saying the Packers are vulnerable w/o Rodgers.  Vikings quarterback aren’t a walk in the park either. The Packers are a 5 pt home fave. I like the Pack by a Mason Crosby fg.

Jacksonville vs Houston- The Texans are disappointing like the Falcons this yr & Andre Johnson made himself looked bad by walking off the field w/ 58 seconds after a heated exchange w/ Matt Schaub. That was the last thing Kubiak needed to see in his return game & he was coaching in the press box. For the Jags, after defeating the Titans for their 1st win, they get popped in the mouth at home vs the Cardinals. Someone needs to win this game for AFC South purposes. The Texans are 10 pt home faves. I like the Texans by at least 4 pts.

San Diego vs Kansas City-  The Chiefs saw their chance of going undefeated go down the drain w/ their loss in Denver. Some said the Broncos exposed them. I think it was the crowd that got them rattled. I know one thing: when the rematch occurs next week in Arrowhead, you’ll see a different Chiefs team. For the Chargers, they’re coming off a loss to the Dolphins in South Beach. They’re still in the hunt for the wild card. Round 1 of this AFC West match-up. Chiefs are 5 pt home faves. I hope this isn’t a trap game for the rematch vs the Broncos. I like the Chiefs to win & cover.

Carolina vs Miami- The Panthers are getting the league’s attention w/ their gritty defense & their game w/ the Pats lived up to the hype. It sucked how it ended w/ the controversy bout whether it was pass interference or not, but it was a great game. Cam Newton has finally grown in our eyes & some people are throwing him in the conversation for MVP. For the Dolphins, they’re coming off a win vs the Chargers. Even w/ all the mess w/ Martin & Incognito, they’re still in the chase for a  wild card berth. The Panthers are 4.5 road faves. I like the Panthers to carry their momentum & win by a fg.

Pittsburgh vs Cleveland- The rivalry that my childhood was built around starts up this week. Both teams are tied w/ the Ravens for 2nd in the AFC North w/ a 4-6 record. My Browns are coming off a loss to the in-state rival Bengals while the Steelers had to come back to defeat the Lions at home. It’s a lil chance of snow for this game, so I’m excited bout this game. The Browns are a pt home faves. We need a running game to defeat the Steelers. You already know where I’m going w/ this #BEATTHESTEELERS

Chicago vs St. Louis – The battle of neighboring states hits the pros this week. The Bears are coming off an overtime win vs the Ravens & that game was delayed for a hour because of weather conditions. I guess Josh McKown is the guy since Cutler’s hurt. Speaking of him, how do you get hurt in your contract yr? Your stock drops from that. For the Rams, coming off their bye week, so they must be prepared. The Rams are a pt home fave. I like the Bears by a fg.

N.Y. Jets vs Baltimore- Both teams are coming losses. The Jets were popped in the mouth by the Bills in Orchard Park, making the league wondering what’s up w/ the Jets. Win one week, lose the next. For the Ravens, losing to the Bears in ot  in a game thar was delayed by weather & are tied w/ the Bengals & Browns @ 4-6 in the AFC North. It’s also a reunion for Rex Ryan as he faces his old team where he was the defensive coordinator for yrs before he got the gig in New York. The Ravens are 4 pt home faves. I like the Ravens to win & cover.

Tennessee vs Oakland- The Raiders are coming off a win in H-Town & doing it w/ Jennings as their running back. Another star player (McFadden) getting the injury bug in his contract yr. Raiders nation already giving up on him. For the Titans, they are coming off a tough home loss vs the Colts. However, Fitzpatrick looked good filling in for Locklear. The Raiders are a pt home fave. I like the Radiers by a Sea Bass fg.

Indianapolis vs Arizona- The Colts are coming off their road win in Tennessee & now hitting the road again to face the Cards. Most Colts fan are probably thinking in spite of them winning games, they haven’t gotten that much from Trent Richardson ever since they traded for him.. For the Cards, coming off a win in Jacksonville & are in the toughest divison in the NFL where both them, the 49ers, & Seahawks are over .500. This may be the sleeper game of the week. The Cards are a pt home fave. I like the Colts to win by a fg because they are a different beast when they are at home.

Dallas vs N.Y. Giants – Round 2 of this NFC East battle. The Cowboys won the 1st battle in week 1 in Jerry’s house. The G-Men are suddenly turning their season around w/ a 4 game winning steak & are coming off defeating a Packers team w/ no Rodgers. For the Cowboys, coming off the bye week & probably wondering how the hell they gave up 40 1st downs to the Saints & the Eagles are in 1st place in that division that nobody wants. The Giants are 2.5 home faves. I like the Giants to continue the momentum. Besides, it’s almost December & Romo has a love /hate relationship in that month. For my buddy Leticia Robinson, SALSA CRUZ TO THAT!!

Denver vs New England- The Broncos are riding high after their win vs the Chiefs last week. I think they were more happy that that Chiefs defense didn’t get to Peyton Manning since he had that high ankle sprain. For the Pats, coming off an controversial loss in Carolina & they probably want to get that taste out their mouth real bad. They must not forget the fact that Miami & the Jets are 2 back of them in the division. The Broncos are 2.5 road faves. I hope the Broncos are looking ahead to round 2 vs the Chiefs aka trap game. I like the Broncos to win by a td & thus ending Manning’s nightmares in Foxboro

Monday

 

San Francisco vs Washington- Both teams are coming off losses. The Niners shot themselves in the foot w/ mental mistakes down the stretch in New Orleans, however that was a legal hit on Brees by Ahmad Brooks in my opinion. BTW, kudos to Ray Lewis for saying he’ll pay ½ his fine if the league fines him. For the Redskins, they’re coming off a loss in Philly & the Shanahan/RG III  chemistry is starting to run his course as they had a he said/ she said moment. The 49ers should be worrying bout the Cardinals overtaking them in the final wild card spot while despite their 3-7 record, the Skins still have a shot of the NFC East. The 49ers are 5 pt road faves. I like the 49ers to get back on track w/ their winning ways & Kaepy needs to stop playing scared.
