Winterized the lawn today. Seeing that it was 40 degrees most of this week I figured I should get it wrapped up for the season. It may even snow tomorrow again so you can imagine how excited I am. I have extra time so I thought I would throw up an NFL post.
Voting is still open for the inaugural Friday Night Video Fights. I am a bit surprised that Billy Idol's "Dancing with Myself" is winning by such a large margin. I have not seen a beating like that since Roberto Duran stopped Davey Moore in New York!
Week 6 in the NFL
This week is stacked with some great games, and some real loser games. Let's take a look.
NY Giants at New Orleans Saints
The biggest game of the weekend. The best team in the NFC (and likely the NFL) Giants bring their ferocious pass defense into the Superdome. The Saints have a chance to make a real statement about where they are after 2 years out of the playoffs. Key parameter to watch, if the Saints run for over 100 yards, they will win. Great game, but I think the Giants pull this one off.
Baltimore Ravens at Minnesota Vikings
After starting strong, the Ravens have lost two in a row. Their schedule gets no easier with a trip to Minnesota. The Vikings have been good, but there seems to be an air of danger to when on offense. Fumbles and other miscues have gone unnoticed because they have been winning, but they have been far from smooth. I think the Ravens bounce back with the upset win.
Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots
The Patriots have not lost 2 games in a row since 2006. The Titans have the worst pass defense in the league and have given up the most points in the NFL. If the Pats are going to get their offense in gear, this should be the game. Only one problem; weather forecast is for wind, rain, and possible some wet snow. Makes it hard to throw the football, yes? I think the Patriots win a nail biter late.
Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers
This could be game of the week as well. The Chargers have to win this game or their season is finished, it's that simple. The Broncos have impressed so far, and coming off a big win against the Patriots they will have to guard against a letdown. I think the Chargers are going to forget about the run and just throw bombs down the field. As such look for Champ Bailey to make some big plays, and Denver wins going away. Bye Bye San Diego!
-St. Louis vs Jacksonville, who cares?
-The Eagles travel to the Raiders to play a game that is already over.
-The Jets get better quick with a visit by the Bills.
-Pittsburgh hosts Cleveland, boring.
-The Texans play the first place Bengals. First place?? Wow.
-Chicago and Atlanta play an important game that could be a big tie breaker issue at playoff time so both teams need to win it.
-There are a few other games, but nothing too interesting.
Have a good night.
