Chargers vs Raiders – D. Carr finds a way to will his to victory and into the Casino, I mean the playoffs. The Raiders should pay the man and keep him btw.

This is has been topsy turvy season where we’ve seen Patrick Mahomes go through a struggle. Antonio Brown after behaving himself for a year, the clock struck midnight and he turned back into well… Antonio Brown.

 And where we saw Aaron Rodgers become a Covid-19 conspiracy theorist, that does interviews on Fox News.

In honor of Coach John Madden I’ll be writing these predictions in his voice.

Saturday’s games January 8th

Chiefs vs Broncos – The Kansas City Mahomies are playing to lock in the first seed and the bye week on the AFC playoffs side of the bracket.  While Denver has played and decent with Teddy Bridgewater from time to time and showed some heart, I expect Patrick Mahomes to get this W at the State Farm Patrick price.

Cowboys vs Eagles – Expect the unruly to pick themselves up from falling off the Fed Ex Field railing and to yell and scream their Philly Cheesesteak eating heads off as their hated rival Dallas comes to down having already locked up the division.  I expect McCarthy and company rest a few guys and for the scrappy birds of Philly to ring the Liberty Bell as they clinch a spot into the playoffs as a 7th seed.

Sunday January 9th

Washington vs Giants – Lawrence Taylor an all-time Madden team guy is not walking through that door.  These are not your Daddy’s Giants of the old Meadowlands. Missing the playoffs is a rite of passage in terms of New York City Football these last several years. Washington isn’t much better as they have missed the playoffs 23 of the last 29 years.  With no Daniel Jones I’m going to predict the Washington Whatchamacallits eek out an ugly and meaningless win.

Steelers vs Ravens – Neither team is at their best as the once 8-3 Ravens have fallen into abyss of Covid-19 and injuries and are now 8-8 in order to get into the playoffs they need Jesus, lamb’s blood over the concourse at M&T Bank Stadium and for some math to be mathing. Better luck next year, Big Ben has enough juice to get to 9 wins for his last game in the Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow. 

Bengals vs Browns – Baker Mayfield may or may not be a Brown next year, lets see what Sonny Weaver does in the off season (reference to the movie “Draft Day).  Joe Burrow and those crazy Cats from Cincy are headed to the playoffs.   If Coach Mora were around he’d say “Playoffs?”  Yes who dey nation is going to witness some playoff foozball this year.

Packers vs Lions – No kneecaps will be bitten, but an immunized and man bunned Aaron Rodgers will easily stride to victory of their division rival from Detroit.

Bears vs Vikings – Kirk Cousin’s plexiglass couldn’t keep him from catching Covid, we do not “like that” (Youtube Kirk Cousins “You like that” to understand that reference) Kirk.  Tough year for Justin Fields, in my eyes both Coaching staffs need to be blown out like candles.  But we shall see what happens this off season.

Colts vs Jags – Colts

Texans vs Titans – Titans have King Henry coming back.  Enough said.

Saints vs Falcons – Saints don’t have a viable QB.  They don’t deserve a playoff bid but they could earn a spot on Sunday.

Jets vs Bills – Bills rolls into post season with 11 wins.  I’m sorry Jet fans.  You still stink.

49ers vs Rams – A tough division game, I think the Rams are coming together right now with OBJ and Von Miller additions coming up big.

Pat vs Dolphins – Pats by a nose.   The Dolphins are pesky but the OG hoodie fashionista Bill Belichick will cook up a plant to neuratlize them.

Seahawks – vs Cards – Rough year for Russ… Westbrook and Wilson Smh.

Panthers vs Buccaneers – Even without AB, Brady and the Bucs will roll over Carolina.

Chargers vs Raiders – D. Carr finds a way to will his to victory and into the Casino, I mean the playoffs. The Raiders should pay the man and keep him btw.

Due to this being the last week of the season and most fantasy football leagues have completed there will not be any Fantasy picks this week.
