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.
Loss to Benefit Your Team?
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
Bengals High-Powered Offense
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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?
