Week 11: Shave your Season!

10-3-1 … thanks a lot Rams and 49ers. The double digit wins just won’t stop coming, and I won’t stop taking them if they’re offered.

 

LEGGGO!!!!

THURSDAY

Dolphins @ BILLS – It’s cold in Buffalo. Tannehill hasn’t been somewhere this cold. Both of these offenses are turnover prone and the Bills will be without one of the heads of their two-headed monster. For some reason Joe Philbin has been chopping down on his best running back’s carries. This is a recipe for loss. The Bills will take this game in frigid Buffalo.

SUNDAY

Cardinals @ FALCONS – This Falcons team is pissed. Undefeated season gone at the hands of a despised rival, who doesn’t call themselves rivals because “they own them”. The Saints took it to the Falcons and beat them at their own game. The Cardinals are reeling and I don’t see it stopping soon, especially this week. The Falcons at home are +10 and I definitely believe they can cover. Expect some offensive fireworks for one team.

Browns @ COWBOYS – Tony Romo is fire in November, we’ll talk about December in a few weeks because we know how that typically goes. The Browns keep struggling every year with mismanagement under Holmgren. The Cowboys will most likely win their games in November and start bailing their dedication for a comeback in December.

PACKERS @ Lions – Old foes meet again in Ford Field. The Packers are coming off their bye, but still aren’t really getting healthy besides Jordy. However, they’ve been fine without the guys they are missing, but they haven’t really run across the offense that they’re about to see in the dome. The Lions lost a real heart-breaker to the Adrian Petersons last Sunday. Stafford will definitely be looking to light up the scoreboard against his Cheesehead adversary.

BENGALS @ Chiefs – Arrowhead used to be one of the toughest places to win a game, but unless Jamaal Charles has well over 100 yards, I don’t think the stadium will have that kind of affect or magic on today’s game. The Bengals embarassed the Super Bowl Champion Giants last week at home, and I’m sure Marvin Lewis won’t let his young team get head of themselves sitting at 4-5 and now with a golden opportunity to seize a playoff spots from a Steelers team that is without their quarterback. Also, good luck to the Chiefs stopping AJ Green.

Jets @ RAMS – Sorry my Jet fan friends, you’re team just looks awful. The Rams defense will overpower the Jets anemic offense. Greg Zuerlein will have at least one fifty yard field goal. The Jets need a change, somewhere and soon. The Rams probably have a bad hangover from their tie with the division leader. They had the game won, but just didn’t want it. They will be looking for blood today at home against a struggling Jets squad.

Greg the Leg

Eagles @ REDSKINS – Nick Foles is not the answer. Michael Vick is not the problem. He’s never been a quarterback who has excelled at reading the defense, but rather baiting the defense into changing their own scheme, but without a line the defense is free to do what they please and get into the backfield. Even LeSean Mccoy is having big issues this year trying to get out of the backfield while he is being hit more than 30% of the time behind the line. RGIII enjoyed his bye after losing to Cam Newton two weeks ago and let’s see how he and his coaches handled their time off.

BUCCANEERS @ Panthers – The Bucs find themselves in the fight for a wild card spot, but will have to hold off the furiously charging Saints. Josh Freeman is leading the third highest scoring offense in the league, who would’ve thunk it? He now leads a Fantasy Football juggernaut. The Panthers will be experiencing a lot of changes in a few months, and the sledding won’t get easier this weekend.

Jaguars @ TEXANS – This is a snoozer. MJD just sit back and see how this team misses you and draw up your own contract. Enough said.

SAINTS @ Raiders – Drew Brees is leading his team back from dead. They must go to the Black Hole and take it to the Raiders struggling defense. The Saints defense isn’t playing lights-out, but they are coming together at the right time and making plays when they need to. Carson Palmer still isn’t turning the ball over as much as last year, but without Darren McFadden this team lacks a big play running game and now they have to face a Saints team that’s simply on fire.

Here they come …

Chargers @ BRONCOS – Don’t expect any revenge, but don’t expect the same comeback because the Broncos will be ahead early. Philip Rivers has found some gold in a healthy Danario Alexander, but Peyton Manning is looking like a possible Comeback Player of the Year and an MVP candidate. If they Chargers want to pull out the upset and make the AFC West a race, Rivers needs to not turn the ball over  and the Chargers defense needs to stop Peyton … good luck.

Colts @ PATRIOTS – This will be a great game. Luck has shown the poise of a veteran and has won some big games already. Bill Belichick and his team have not been as sound this year and they are not better than the other two top teams in the AFC. Don’t be surprised by a shootout in Foxborough.

RAVENS @ Steelers – This would’ve been the game of the week, but without Big Ben it’s the Ravens versus the running back committee of the Steelers. They could definitely do some serious damage against the  a weak Ravens run defense. This will still be a good game, just because it’ll be physical and these teams hate one another, but I can’t see Byron Leftwich pulling out a win against the Ravens. Hopefully Big Ben gets better and thank god his injury wasn’t worse.

OUCH TOWN POPULATION YOU BRO!!

Bears @ 49ERS – This is another game with an injured quarterback not being able to play, but this backup has proven in the past few years he can win some games. Don’t be surprised if the Bears pull out a win here, but I think the Niners at home after that horrible tie will be on their game. These are two of the top defenses in the league and love to hit hard. Expect a similar game to the Bears and Texans last weekend.

UPSET ALERT – I am putting the Patriots on Upset Alert because of what Andrew Luck brings to the table. I am also putting the Bears on Upset Alert, because their record is better than the 49ers.

 

SURVIVOR PICK – Texans, no questions asked. (If Picked already:
