Firstly - I am sorry for not getting my post out last week. Was traveling for the holidays and could not get access to a computer. I know it shouldn't matter as we live in an age where many of us pay our bills from a cell phone...but technology sometimes like to laugh at me. As mentioned before in the comment sections of these posts before...I still have an old school bookie; and I keep a paper book, which I write in with an actual pen.
Secondly - Regardless of which specific holiday you celebrate, I hope it was spent safely, with family and loved ones...preferably around a TV watching football with some cold ones! Let's recap Week 15 (and I'll comment on my week 16 plays):
JAX@ATL OVER 42: (W)
CAR@HOU OVER 45: (L) Houston had a 1st and goal from inside the 5 and couldn't punch it in for the score...should have covered
IND+6.5: (W) everyone thought I was crazy!
BAL-2.5: (L) SD came out guns slingin...too bad it won't save Norv
Other week 15 plays: NE-8 (W), Cincy-7 (P) for a 5-2-1 record on the week
Not that it matters much because it is all after the fact, but I went 5-4-0 with:
SD@Det OVER 52.5 (L)
Den@Buf+3 (W) - my buddy's gave me hell for this pick!
Chi@GB-13 (W) - almost lost this one in garbage time
Atl@NO OVER 52 (W)
Record on the season is now 78-60-7. My plays for Week 17 are after the jump.
I do not have the luxury of typing all of the lines this week so go to http://www.scoresandodds.com/footballschedule_thisweek.html for all the numbers. Here are my plays:
SF-10.5@ STL - Love the 49ers in this spot...they will cover this twice over
CAR+7.5@NO - Like Cam Newton and Company to come in and keep this one close enough until Brees sits...then the Panthers go crazy on them.
CHI@MIN-1 - This is as close to a meaningful game as you will find in Week 17 with two teams not going to make the playoffs - Divisional slugfest for bragging rights!
BUF+10.5@NE - Like the Bills to lay some numbers once the Brady Bunch all sit down and let the scrubs fill time.
Dal@NYG-3 - This is purely a HATE pick...I HATE the cowboys!
Well - whatcha all like this weekend?
