PIGSKIN 2016: Week Six


Week Six

Week Four

Week Four Record:  7-6
Overall Record:  22-32-1
Schmear of the Week:  2-2
BAGELS in the Basket:  -11

1st and Ten:
  • And then, there was one ... the Minnesota Vikings remain the lone undefeated team in the NFL. Who knew?
2nd and Short:
  • Scuttlebutt says if Dak Prescott continues performing well, Tony Romo will back up upon his return.  I'll believe it when I see it.
  • Tom Brady's second week back.  Look out.
No Gain:
  • Colin Kaepernick rightfully helped spark a national off-the-field conversation.  He won't help the 49ers much, though.
  • If the Jets lose Monday ... it's over Johnny.  Pack it up and flee Revis Island while you're still able.

Friday Line ~ NYDN

GIANTS -3 (Ravens)
In other words, this game is up for grabs.  While I think the Ravens are coming back down to earth, I'm not sure where the Giants are headed.  I'm playing this like a fan, laying the obligatory three points at home and hoping for the best.
WIN  27-23 Giants

PATRIOTS -9 (Bengals)
With a week under Tom Brady's belt, his mission to blast away at the NFL begins in earnest ... now.   On a more serious note, it's just so hard beating the Pats at home.  This will be one of those SHM games for Bengals fans.
WIN  35-17 Patriots

SAINTS +3 (Panthers)
On this given Sunday, Drew Brees will show Cam how it's done.
WIN  41-38 Saints

Steelers -7 1/2 (DOLPHINS)
This is very simply a good team playing on the road against a bad team at home.  Pittsburgh will enjoy this lone trip to the Sunshine State before their schedule begins turning a lot colder.
Loss  30-15 Dolphins

BEARS -2 (Jaguars)
My heart says pick the Jags.  My head says I'm an idiot for picking de Bears.  So much for democracy.
Loss  17-16 Jaguars

BILLS -8 (49ers)
This game marks Colin Kaepernick's first start of the season.  I sense sacks in his future ... many sacks and QB hits.
WIN  45-16 Bills

LIONS -3 1/2 (Rams)
I'm going with the Lions because the Rams are really, really banged up.  Scoring isn't necessarily Detroit's issue.  Preventing them, is.
Loss  31-28 Lions

TITANS -7 (Browns)
I would take any team laying seven at home over the Browns.  I'd even take Manchester United laying seven at home over the Browns.
Loss  28-26 Titans

Eagles -2 (D.C. HOGS)
I just think the Eagles are better than two point favorites over the over-rated Hogs.
Loss  27-20 Hogs

Chiefs -1 1/2 (RAIDERS)
All the talk of moving the Raiders to Las Vegas has made playing in the shadow of Mount Davis truly akin to playing in a black hole.  They're better on the road this season.  I wonder why.
WIN  26-10 Chiefs

Falcons +6 (SEAHAWKS)
Hard to do against Seattle's defense, but it's time I threw the Falcons a bone.  The Seahawks do not exactly light up the scoreboard, so it's up to Atlanta's flaky defense to keep this in range.
WIN  26-24 Seahawks

PACKERS -4 (Cowboys)
The weight of the Texas falls on Dak Prescott's shoulders this week.  He's not THAT good, yet.
Loss  30-16 Cowboys

TEXANS -3 (Colts)
The competition for who gets sacked more between Kaepernick and Andrew Luck is on.
Loss  26-23 Texans

If I were the Cardinals, I'd be in a state of rage over starting the season 2-3.
WIN  28-3 Cardinals

Schmear of the Week:
Steelers -7 1/2

Guten Appetit:
Kabobs (pork cubes, yellow and red peppers, Spanish onions) over yellow rice w/corn and sliced avocado.  Shrimp, tomato, zucchini bruschetta mix on toasted french bread.  This must be washed down with Heineken ... of course.

Good luck, and have a great Football Sunday everyone!
