Week 7

Back from Vacation
It was great but now it's time to get back to work.  This week will be a little longer so we can get back to our Tuesday advance days. So you have until next Monday at 10PM ET to get your week 7 games played.

Accepting a Loss to Benefit Your Team?
At some point, teams may purposely accept a loss to benefit their teams in the draft, or simply save on player use. There is no rule at this time to prevent this. However, it is outside the parameters of good sportsmanship and can impact teams throughout the league if practiced. It is strongly advised that each team do their best to win at all times. A rule may be instated for next season to prevent or at least discourage this practice.

Bengals
High-Powered Offense
Can anyone stop this passing attack?  Drew Brees doesn't think so, and for good reason. With players like, A.J. Green, (currently injured), TE Zach Ertz, Mike Evans, DeAundre Hopkins, Tavon Austin and Terrence Williams at his disposal, why would he be worried.

   PREDICTIONS: Week 6
  
by jeff beyel

...
G-men still not ready for prime time dropping heart-breaker to Dallas. Eagles tied game up as time ran out vs Seattle and then won in OT scoring final 17 points of game. QB Matt Stafford finally played well and could begin a run here vs Giants.  Philadelphia 24-21.
...
Seahawk season is all but over after stunning late game collapse vs Eagles. Giving up league worst 405 YPG! Niners an improved team this year and can get back to .500 with win but have never beaten Seahawks (0-8)!  Seattle with 55% completion rate and 16 sacks while having just 6 sacks is formula for disaster. Niners get monkey off back?  San Francisco 27-24.
...
'Skins suffered crushing loss to Panthers last week and now get high riding Pokes who lead league in YPG (397.2) and rushing yards per game (165.6).  Washington 4th worst in yards allowed per attempt (4.7 YPG) and hard tosee them stopping the truck.  Dallas 31-17.
...
Dolphins struggling to be consistent and have not been able to pass ball effectively nor run it with any explosiveness.  Bills trying to be story of the year and can get 5th win up in Orchard Park. Bills rugged vs run and have solid defense overall and should be able to easily check Miami attack. Buffalo 28-13.
...
Panthers won dramatic last second game over Redskins last week to salvage season.  Now they play a Browns team that has scored the fewest points in football.  Carolina 28-10.
...
Lions cannot score having gone over the 20 point  mark just once. Packers' QB Jameis Winston has had 1 game with a 100+ rating and has 7 picks. Detroit has one of worst run games in league while Green Bay has one of best run defenses in the league. Yuck. Green Bay 21-14.
...
KC,easily, has been the biggest disappoint in league thus far. To have any hope of making playoffs, they must win this game.  QB Andrew Luck has just 3 TD passes.  Saints have been like a box of chocolates.  Two teams that have not been consistent.  New Orleans 24-21.
...
About the best thing for the Chargers about this game is the short ride home.  One of biggest mismatches of the season with powerhouse Rams and Tom Brady (or do we see  Garappolo going again?) rolling to win #6.  Los Angeles 35-10.
...
Bronco defense has been stellar allowing league low 50 points.  The soft underbelly of Denver could be their run game. With just 2 sacks the pass rush has not been great.  Broncos, though, excellent on 3rd down D (27.4%).  Raiders have decent team stats but just 2 takeaways is a problem. Denver 27-17.
...
Falcons showed they can run ball last week vs Titans and face worst rush defense in league with Cards who are allowing 151.6 YPG rushing. QB Aaron Rodgers' dismal career as a Cardinal hit low point last week in massacre at hands of Bengals.  A-Rod was sacked 5 times and finished with 52 rating.  Atlanta 28-17.
...
Jags in running for top draft pick while Patriots took the week off vs Vikings. Expect New England to get back on track after two straight defeats.  New England 31-13.
...
QB Drew Brees having another great year in Cinci.  WR Mike Evans having big season. Cinci trying for first SB title but...Steelers 3rd fewest points in league and QB Roethlisberger having rough year means cannot hang with big boys.  Cincinnati 31-17.
...
Big game for both clubs. Titans' Jeremy Howard is 3rd in league in rushing but Colts have second best rush defense (65.6 YPG) with no back gaining over 80 yards in any game this year.  This could force Tennessee to the air where QB Eli Manning has been up and down. Indianapolis 21.17.
...
GOTW:  Top scoring team in football (Minny) that has ruled the NFC Central goes to Soldier Field for, arguably, the biggest regular season game in Bears' history.

   GAME OF THE WEEK: week 6
  
by jeff beyel

 

 

@

 

...
   Minnesota has dominated the NFC Central and enter this latest divisional showdown with the top scoring (168 points) offense in the league that also ranks 3rd in the league for YPG (386YPG). RB Melvin Gordon is out so C.J.Anderson looks like top dog now. Gordon's breakaway ability could be missed.
   Chicago does not run the ball well averaging just 3.3 YPC which is the 4th worst in the league. Bears have been solid on defense and have allowed just 1 rushing TD on the season but have played only one team in the top 10 on offense for yards per game (Green Bay at #10). Hard to envision the Chicago front 7 ,that has been led almost exclusively by its linebackers, stopping the Viking running attack. DL Alan Branch has 22 tackles but no other defensive lineman has 10.  Compare that stat to the Vikings who have 4 defensive linemen with over 10 tackles. It looks like Minnesota should be able to move the ball on the ground behind their solid offensive line but without Gordon their normal effectiveness could be stunted.
   The Bears do not match-up well against Minny's front 7 and the Vikes should be able to line up M2M against Chicago's Alshon Jeffery and Marqise Lee with CBs Terrence Newman and Brent Grimes.  One good thing Bears do is not turn it over having just 3 TOs all year and coming in with a +6 TO ratio but, again, that was against mostly soft competition.

Final Analysis:  Quite a bit of excitement in Chicago but this one looks like it may be a long night for the Bears. Minnesota could be hurt without Gordon but their offense is still good and their defense is pretty stout in the secondary.  If Chicago had a better run game and offensive line, this one could be very interesting.  Not seeing a Chicago party when the gun sounds.  Minnesota 28-14.

   PREDICTIONS: Week 5
  
by jeff beyel

...
  In a bit of a down year in the AFC, these two teams need a win badly to stay in playoff hunt. Raider back Latavius Murray has not gained more than 64 yds in any game this season hurts QB Blake Bortles. Niner QB Cam Newton's50.7 rating is beyond belief! Oakland 17-14.
...
  Broncos shutout KC earlier handing Chiefs first blanking in franchise history. Chiefs one of league's biggest disappoints thus far and things not looking great vs stout Bronco D and super-play of QB Sam Bradford (106.7 rating). Denver does not run ball well so that means this one likely another tour de force game.  Denver 21-17.
...
  Rams looking to get a strangle hold on NFC West head to a dangerous Steeler team getting QB Ben Roathlisberger back.  However, Steelers rely a lot on Big Ben's arm and rams secondary among best in football allowing just 50% completion rate.  Tom Brady still zero INTs.  Los Angeles 27-14.
...
  Miami's lone win was vs Jville and this game marks 3rd staight intra-state game for Dolphins. Jags have played well on D of late but scored just 7 points in each of last two games and only 17 in eachof the two games before that.  Low scoring affair.  Miami 17-14.
...
  Carolina up and down season continues.  Redskin QB Kirk Cousins coming off 4 TD game in which he completed 26 of 30 passes.  Shapes up as a great game if Panthers can cut down the 4 TOs that cost them game in DC two weeks ago.  Carolina 24-21.
...
  This is actually a very big game in the NFC.  Lions hoping to grab share of first place with a W while Bears seeking 4-1 start. Bears' QB Trevor Siemian becoming a folk hero and defense hawking ball leading to +5 TO ratio keys.  Lions playing better than expected with aged vet RB Frank Gore playing well.  Major issue is horrid 3rd down rate (22%).  Chicago 24-17.
...
  Two teams suddenly in a game where the loser could be in a bit of trouble. Pats coming off loss to Atlanta could slip behind upstart Bills with an L while Vikes could easily end up below .500 after 5 games and 2 games behind Bears!  Minny averaging 2.25 TOs per game and QB Philip Rivers has struggled but Vikings have history of winning these type games.  Minnesota 27-24.
...
  bolts barely a AA battery these days have had their entire backfield decimated. Colts, chomping at bit after playing three straight, tough games , should have their way against San Diego.  Indianapolis 28-10.
...
  The Bills are making a real push for the playoffs and could actually be in first place in the AFC after this week if they can take care of business vs the Browns.  Buffalo runs the ball well and gets after the QB.  The second annual "Mistake On the Lake" Bowl.  Buffalo 24-13.
...
.Powerl Bengals on fire behind perennial MVP candidate QB Drew Brees.  Defense is top tier level.  Cards have never been able to get value out of QB Aaron Rodgers and that fact continuing this season.  Cincinnati 31-14.
...
  Falcons saved season, for now, last week with big win over Patriotsbut now get into a really big game against Titans. QB Matt Ryan has been incredible with amazing 129.7 rating and had thrown for 300+ in three of first four games. He has 12 TD passes and 0 picks! Titans' Eli Manning just 1 pick in last 3 games but Tennessee vulnerable to pass and that means trouble vs Falcons. Atlanta 28-21.
...
  Eagles at 1-3 is mind boggling but here they are. Seahawks at 0-4 is unimaginable but here they are. Well, somebody has to win this one.  Philly loaded with talent but having trouble winning games and a loss in Seattle would be a complete disaster.  Not gonna happen. Philadelphia 31-17..
...
A huge game in the NFC Central.  The winner could be in 1st after this week and will be at 3-2 regardless.  Jameis Winston has been miserable for Pack and coming off terrible performance in 28-0 debacle vs Titans. Saints have been inconsistent as has been play of QB Andy Dalton.  A bit of a coin toss game due to both teams being so unpredictable. New Orleans24-21.
...
  GOTW:  This was game-of-the-week just two weeks ago and Big Blue died under the heated lights of Big D.  Can the G-men take that big step and become relevant or fall 2 behind Dallas and fizzle?
