NFL WEEK 13 THURSDAY NIGHT GAMES
I’ve never read any of the big official game pickers come out and say they sucked the previous week – but I’m going to own that. 5-9. Dreadful – still if there’s a time to get that SHIT WEEK in it’s now, before I need the big score at season’s end.
American Thanksgiving gives us 3 games and they really need to mix these up a bit and give us other teams to watch…unless it’s tradition like that ridiculous 4-6 legged turkey the NFL commentators gnaw on after the show.
Season record 102-74
Detroit over Green Bay
Green Bay’s QB is trying to fill Rodger’s cleats and not doing too badly and Detroit of late has been just missing the mark, admittedly that mark is all over the field. A loss at home to Tampa last week should have them embarrassed enough to … do better this week. These two are pretty well matched statistically and being at home is an advantage to Detroit. Taking Detroit.
Dallas over Oakland
Very troublesome. Dallas’ advantage is in their scoring game having racked up 100 more points for the season. Defensively they’re within 20. Taking Dallas.
Baltimore over Pittsburgh
This will be a hard fought divisional battle. They’re both 5-6. Baltimore wins in the D department and rushing a few extra yards. Pittsburgh has Baltimore on passing and total yards per game. It’s going to be an Any Given Sunday kind of night and hopefully end in Baltimore’s favor.
