NFL WEEK 14 Thursday Night Football

Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars

Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars

Houston just about nearly almost edged New England last week on home turf.  They’re on the road tonight in balmy Jacksonville to meet the hapless Jaguars.  Both these teams are scraping the bottom of the AFC South.  Technically I suppose Jacksonville is scraping Houston who are scraping the bottom of the AFC South.  Jacksonville beat Houston 2 weeks ago so the question is really …can they beat them again?  There is no evidence anywhere that either of these two can actually beat the other.  I’m taking Houston because overall they’ve scored more and let in less…. But it’s really an either or situation. It’s like deciding to do one thing over another because you’ll catch less shit than if you did the other … thing.

Washington @ Minnesota Thursday Night NFL

Washington Redskins @ Minnesota Vikings NFL Thursday Night

We’ve been over this before and it’s even more relevant this season. Betting lines don’t mean much at all.  Those that set those lines have little more clue than you do as to who’s going to win any game at any time.  Their main drive is to make money — off anyone who’s willing to place a bet.  That being said Washington is favoured by 1.5 points — AKA — it’s anyone’s game.  Minnesota’s Peterson seems ready to bust out and tear the field up.  RG111 is improving but he’s still not quite back to his explosive play saving running the ball and laser accuracy throws of his previous season and prior to injury self.  And as much as I think that if you’re getting paid that much to play, you should suck it up and play….  that shit had to hurt.  I’m taking the Vikings tonight.
