GAME OF THE WEEK 2 – 2
KANSAS CITY @ -OAKLANAD5 +2 48 [O]
Prior to last year, the Raidas were plain awful in just about every facet of the game.
This year they have the fourth best offense in the league—and the league’s worst defense.
Jack Del Rio can’t turn around everything at once—but he’s working on it. What he has done is change the culture, the vibe and the expectations the Black & Silver have for themselves. Raiders fans love seeing “mystique” return to the Black Hole.
In Kansas City, Andy Reid is ahead of Del Rio’s schedule—but the Arrowheads looked like world beaters against the Jets and were thoroughly outclassed against Pittsburgh.
Oakland has the much better offense in this one and the Chiefs are looking to establish firmer offensive footing. KC better cover Amari Cooper on punt returns; he could turn the game around.
We’re taking the home dog Raidas and the Over/
Raiders 27 Chiefs 24
LOCK OF THE WEEK 1 – 3
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS @ HOUSTON TEXANS -5 48 [U]
This puppy pits two teams who need what each other excels at. Houston would be a dominant team with a decent offense. The Colts would be formidable with a competent defense.
As is, they compete in a division where no team sees itself clearly in the post-season photo developing thus far in 2016.
Andrew Luck doesn’t have the receivers Peyton Manning had, nor the in-depth knowledge of his offense, not to mention his suspect ability to read defenses. Luck isn’t the elite performer we thought he would be in his fourth year, but he does have elite skills.
So does the Houston defense, and J.J. Watt loves to play at home.
Luck gets frustrated with pressure and Houston will exploit that fact; look out for a defensive touchdown.
Texans 23 Colts 17
UPSET SPECIAL 3 – 1
DALLAS COWBOYS @ GREEN BAY PACKERS -4 48 [O]
After 19 years of incompetent drafting by Jerry Jones, bone-headed coaching hirings and firings, after annual delusional expectations of star-struck fans, too many unwarranted primetime appearances, a Texas sized stadium the sane world finds much less impressive than Texans; after the self-labeled and wholly undeserved “America’s Team” label and two—two!— playoff wins in the last two decades, the Dallas Cowboys might once again be a relevant football team.
God, help us.
Jerry Jones was insufferable when the Cowboys were barely more successful than Detroit or Cleveland.. Now, it will be fun to see him take credit for the improved scouting and drafting by his son, Steven. (Remember, Jerrah wanted to draft Johnny Manziel.)
Dallas Rookie sensations, QB Dak Prescott and Sherman tank running back, Ezekiel Elliot operating behind the biggest, baddest offensive line in the NFC have made the ‘Boy the second best offense in the NFL.
Meanwhile, Aaron Rogers and the Pack are in an unprecedented funk that has the Green Bay offense mired in Cheese Whiz. Mediocre wide receivers make great quarterbacks look pedestrian.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Lambeau Field, a much improved Green Bay defense…Yet, they haven’t faced an offense anywhere near as potent as Dallas.
I’m betting DC, Dom Capers, won’t stop Prescott or Elliot; the Cowboys make a statement in this one, Over the Total.
Cowboys 31 Packers 20
OVER/UNDER OF THE WEEK 0 – 4
CINCINNATI BENGALS @ NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS -9 47.5 [O]
Let’s see, the last time the Patriots got busted for cheating their record went from superb to legendary.
We do remind smug Patriots fans Bill Vadar Bellichick may still be benefitting from a catalogue of defensive signals amassed during the decade before he was busted. However, that analysis still doesn’t negate the fact that I’ve picked against New England all year—and got singed for the last five weeks.
I give up.
The Patriots, their cheatin’ hearts aside, are usually a home juggernaut, are well coached, disciplined, talented—and Tom Brady is pissed off.
Cincy—on paper as good as anyone—underperforms on the road, and have blown more games than Akira has guys with tattoos—at least that’s what my friends tell me. (Perverts!)
New England focuses better than any football team in the league. Cincy is their polar opposite.
Take the Over in a rout…
Patriots 36 Bengals 23
