NFL FOOTBALL FINAL ROUND-UP

What an absolutely ridiculous set of circumstances that led to the Eagles making the final playoff spot in the NFC. Oakland knocked off TB as huge underdogs*.

*What the hell happened to Tampa Bay’s defense. This was a good unit for most of the season, then they just got absolutely run all over the past few weeks. They allowed over 189 yards per game on the ground during a four game losing streak.

-It may be a bit reactionary, but that had to be one of the worst losses ever for Dallas. They are a very mediocre team, but they got embarrassed on Sunday to the point where I will no longer be able to take the Eagles next week.

-I was disappointed with the outcomes of the game from a gambling standpoint. Denver would have been an absolute slam dunk play as home dogs to Indy. The Eagles obviously blew out Dallas, so the only play there is Minnesota. Dallas would have been fun to bet against in the playoffs, but obviously they were exposed last week.

-If I had to pick a Super Bowl right now I’m saying Philadelphia v. Baltimore.

On to next week:
The lines:
Atlanta -2.5 @ Arizona
Indianapolis -1 @ San Diego
Baltimore -3 @ Miami
Philadelphia -3 @ Minnesota

Out of that Arizona is an absolute slam dunk play. Minnesota is a possibility. San Diego and Philadelphia are my leans in the other two. I hope I can make a case for San Diego because I feel great about that game. Having to side with Minnesota and Miami to a lesser extent.

NFL PICKS

Last week of the regular season:

Tennessee -3 +105(1): This would be a double if not for Tenny’s blowout win last week.
Baltimore -10.5(1): I should probably pass this.
Buffalo +5.5(1): Definite play.
San Diego -9 +100(1)

We’ll leave it at that.

Other Pigskin Pick’em Picks in order of confidence.
Philadelphia
Minnesota
Cleveland
San Francisco
Seattle
Cincinnati
Tampa Bay
Atlanta
Houston
NYJ
Carolina
Detroit

That looks exactly like my regular card, except the exact opposite.

Washington +5(1)
Detroit +7(1)
Seattle +3.5(1)
Oakland +7(2)

That’s it for now. If my schedule permits I would like to look further into Minnesota, and the Giants are an outside possibility tonight. Also leaning GB for the Monday night game.

PIGSKIN PICK’EM

Photo from AP/Phil Coale
Thank you, Jacksonville. Thank you, Jack Del Rio. Well played and well coached game last night. This brings me to a bigger point. The Colts are “on fire” right now winning 8 in a row. Who were those eight?

Pats
Steelers
Texans
Chargers
Browns
Bengals
Lions
Jaguars

This is a early season New York Giant type run. Aside from the win at Pittsburgh(Colts were out-gained 326 to 290 in that one) there is not an impressive win in that mix. Indy is not the best team. Indy is not in the elite mix of teams. Indy is probably somewhere in the 7-10 range. On to the picks:

LOCK IT UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY!!!?!?!!!?!
OAKLAND
WASHINGTON
DETROIT

STRONG OPINIONS:
SEATTLE
TENNESSEE
CLEVELAND
GREEN BAY
SEATTLE

SLIGHT LEANS:
NYG
KANSAS CITY
MINNESOTA
SAN DIEGO

TOSS UPS:
BUFFALO
BALTIMORE
SAN FRANCISCO

No time for write-ups this week, my logic is basically the same as I have used all season.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL
No picks again tonight. I think the best options are Northern Colorado and Kent State, but they have some major flags for me. That is not a good sign on small games like that. I’ll save my money for a big card this weekend with the start of Bowl games and a huge Basketball Saturday.

I should have a NCAA Basketball post up later tonight.
