December football has arrived, playoff spots will start to be earned, divisions will be won, but don’t expect the dust to settle until week 18. Because NFL parity is showing itself big time this year.
Let the games begin.
Thursday night football
Bills vs Patriots – Patriots are tough, and will give Buffalo a run for their money as Bill Bellichick knows how to take away your best weapons. But I expect the Bills to win and cover the four point spread. Winner- Bills (Thursday night football)
Broncos vs Ravens –.Denver has a great defense, and if Russell Wilson can figure out this offense, they have a chance to knock off the Ravens. But I believe Big Truss (Lamar Jackson) finds a way to escape with a win at home. But they will not cover the 8 point spread. Winner – Ravens
Steelers vs Falcons- Falcons can run the ball dynamically with Mariota and will edge the Steelers in this one. Winner – Steelers
Packers vs Bears – Both teams stink record wise, I think this is the year the Bears aren’t “owned” by Rodgers and the Packers. Winner – Da Bears (Upset Special)
Jaguars vs Lions – Very even match up, I think Trevor Lawrence is the better QB, and Doug Pedersen is the better coach. That’s the difference, Jags nip the Lions but knee caps will get bitten. Winner – Jags
Jets vs Vikings – Jets are a fun story, but it’s tough to be the Vikings at home at 1pm on a Sunday. Fighting Kirk Thuggins with the W. Winner – Vikings win and cover the 3 point spread.
Titans vs Eagles – The Eagles have a hard time stopping the run, and King Henry will run wild like Hulkamania. Eagles won’t lose many this year, but this will be one of them. (Titans upset the Eagles)
Winner – Titans
Browns vs Texans – The Deshaun Watson bowls sees the Dog Pound beating up a hapless Texans team. Someone please put Lovie Smith out of his misery and fire him already. Winners – Browns The Brownies will cover the 7 point spread.
Seahawks vs Rams – The Rams stink, Geno Smith answers this call, and Seahawks get an important divisional win. Winner – Seahawks Not sure that Seattle will cover the 7.5 points though.
Dolphins vs 49ers – The Niners will use a heavy pass rush, and a steady rush attack to ground Tua and the Fins. Winner – 49ers
Chiefs vs Bengals – the Bengals are rounding into shape, but I’m not betting against the Mahomey this season. Chiefs win and they cover the 2.5 points. Winner – Chiefs
Chargers vs Raiders – Not so great coaches and underachieving quarterbacks with displaced teams. Raiders have been playing better as of late, and I don’t trust Chargers coaching. Winner – Raiders
Colts vs Cowboys – Fighting Jeff Saturdays make a game of it, but the Cowboys have just a bit too much firepower and get the W. Winner – Cowboys Cowboys will not cover the 11 point spread though.
Commanders vs Giants – The Giants are frauds and aren’t as good as their record said they were, but they are an improved team but they lose to Heinicke and company. Winner – Commanders
Monday Night football
Saints vs Buccaneers – The Saints always have the Bucs number. With a reeling Bucs team that’s fighting for their playoff lives with six losses, somehow the Saints find a way to March in and get a victory.
Upset – Saints beat the Bucs – Winner Saints!
