PIGSKIN 2014: Football Sunday ~ Week Six


Football Sunday
Week Six

Week 5 ~ Vacation

Week 4 Record:  7-3-1
Overall Record:  30-22-1
Schmear of the Week:  2-2
BAGELS in the Basket:  +7

Coin Toss:
  • Football in Los Angeles is back on the table again, but with the same old tired plan they always propose.  L.A.'s chance of landing a team have never been better than 50/50.
1st and 10:
  • Head to head division games with 1st place implications ~ Patriots/Bills and Giants/Eagles
No Gain:
  • There are no undefeated teams remaining in the NFL.  The race is now on to see which team earns their 1st victory of the season: Oakland or Jacksonville.
3rd and Long:
  • The Jets are losing altitude fast!
  • Adrian Peterson is in even bigger trouble now.  Someone get that man some help.

(Friday Line ~ NYDN)

Giants +3 (EAGLES)
The Birds -3 at home doesn't say much.  The Giants have handled LaSean McCoy well in the past.

Broncos -9 (JETS)
Sorry Rex, there are no miracles in sight.
WIN; 31-17 Broncos

BROWNS -2 (Steelers)
There's a new sheriff in this rivalry, and his name is Johnny Manziel.
WIN; 31-10 Browns

Jaguars +5 (TITANS)
Because the Titans deserve to be crapped on.
WIN; 16-14 Titans

FALCONS -3 (Bears)
Georgia is no place for a northern bear.
Loss; 27-13 Bears

Packers -3 (DOLPHINS)
This is another of this week's conservative 3-point spreads.  C'mon Vegas, show some nuts.  A 1/2 point would have been nice.
PUSH; 27-24 Packers

Lions -1 1/2 (VIKINGS)
Why wouldn't you take the Lions?
WIN; 17-3 Lions

Panthers +5 1/2 (BENGALS)
I think the Bengals bounce back with a victory, but I'm shooting for the Panthers to cover.
WIN; 37-37 O.T. Tie

Patriots -3 (BILLS)
See Packers game - otherwise, this is an early battle for 1st place.  I'll go with killer instinct and take the Pats.
WIN; 37-22 Patriots

Ravens -3 (BUCS)
See Packers and Patriots - The Bucs have been playing better of late, but not that much better.
WIN; 48-17 Ravens

Chargers -7 (RAIDERS)
This is going to be a sparing session.  Be on the lookout for a blowout in the Black Hole.
Loss; 31-28 Chargers

SEAHAWKS -8 (Cowboys)
Did you see how happy Tony Romo looked last week?  That means he's due to have a miserable day against the LOB.
Loss; 30-23 Cowboys

CARDINALS -3 1/2 (D.C. Hogs)
Who made this week's lines, Ebenezer Scrooge?  What a tight ass.
WIN; 30-20 Cardinals

Schmear of the Week: (2-2)
Chargers -7

Chicken kabobs, garlic shrimp, stuffed mushrooms, zucchini fries, and a big salad...   What's on your football menu?

Good luck, and have a Happy Football Sunday everyone!
