PIGSKIN 2014: Football Sunday - Week Eight


Football Sunday
Week Eight

On Vacation 

Week Seven Record:  6-7
Overall Record:  44-33-2
Schmear of the Week:  3-3
BAGELS in the Basket:  +9

Coin Toss:
  • This is why everyone fiends for football.  It's already the half way point of the regular season.  Damn it.
1st and 10:
  • It's time for the Pats to pull away from the Bills, and for the Ravens to pull away from the Bengals.
2nd and Long:
  • This is when the Lions drop down to 2nd place, and the Packers assume 1st.  The 2nd place Eagles want to keep pace with Dallas, but the Cards will have a huge say in that.
No Gain:
  • No victory for Oakland this week.
  • Even without playing (bye), the Giants season stands to get worse this week.

(Friday Line ~ NYDN)

JETS -3 (Bills)
This has more to do with the Bills underachieving, than the Jets getting this one right.
Loss; 43-23 Bills

Falcons +4 (Lions) @London
I hear some of the Lions aren't being very kindly mates across the pond.  They'll blow this.
WIN; 22-21 Lions

BUCS -2 1/2 (Vikings)
....only because I'm forced to pick someone.  Bucs can't even lay the customary 3-points.  Pffft.
Loss; 19-13 Vikings  O.T.

PATRIOTS -6 (Bears)
These Bears aren't very feisty.  The Minutemen will see them coming from a mile away.
WIN; 51-23 Patriots

CHIEFS -7 (Rams)
Here is a game I have no confidence in.  I really think the Rams can cover, but.....
WIN; 34-7 Chiefs

Seahawks -5 (PANTHERS)
The Seahawks will be motivated to break a 2-game skid.  The spread is very reasonable.
Loss; 13-9 Seahawks

Dolphins -6 (JAGUARS)
Can the Jags win 2 in a row?  NO!  They'll find out Dolphins are mammals too.
WIN; 27-13 Dolphins

Texans -3 (TITANS)
Captain Obvious called and said lay the points.
WIN; 30-16 Texans

Forget the Ravens for a second....  This is a big home game the Bengals notoriously blow.  Back to the Ravens - I don't see this game being this close (PK).
Loss; 27-24 Bengals

CARDINALS -2 1/2 (Eagles)
The Cards should be able to bottle up LeSean McCoy, and that should be all the difference.  Key word = should.,
WIN; 24-20 Cardinals

Colts -3 (STEELERS)
Last week showed why it's still hard picking against Big Ben.  But it's awfully hard to pick against the Colts right now.
Loss; 51-34 Steelers

BROWNS -7 (Raiders)
This is why I hate the Browns... giving the Jags their first win.  C'mon!  I'll go out on a limb and say the Browns will deny Oakland their first win.  The Raiders offense (last in the NFL) couldn't even score in a woman's prison with a carton of cigarettes.
WIN; 23-13 Browns

Packers +1 (SAINTS)
Did I hear take the over?  A fireworks show in New Orleans.  I'll take 1-point and the Packers defense over that of the Saints defense.
Loss; 44-23 Saints

Schmear of the Week: (3-3)
Patriots -6
WIN (+3 bagels)

Whatever is cookin' in my mom-in-law's kitchen.  What's on your Football Sunday menu?

Good luck and have a Happy Football Sunday everybody!
