Vikings just fired John DeFilippo.

Wrong coach got canned, IMO, but no way is Zimmer going anywhere.... this year.

Best TNF game of the year with two historically great AFC west QBs lighting up the scoreboard and vying for first place.   Brees has gotten the attention with the 3rd highest single season QB rating of all time thus far (120.8) but KC's Mahomes has come out of nowhere to have the 7th highest QBR (115.2 on 66.8%, 4300 yds, 43 TDs, 11 INTs) and SD's Rivers is right behind at #9 (114.5 on 69.4 / 3638 / 29 / 6).  That's right, 3 of the top 9 all-time QB statistical seasons of the past six NFL decades (closer to 100 years if you count pre-AFL days) are all happening this year.   The over/under is a towering 56.5 and I might take the over.

KC has been in every game to the last play and they're 6-0 at home.  SD has played great on the road (5-1) and has won 9 of 10 with their only loss by one point.   Just an awesome matchup all the way around.  Right now I'm leaning Chiefs since they're at home.

Vikings fans strongly disagree with you.  We love Zimmer.  The OC was never a good fit with Zim's style.  He'll have to answer that question at the end of the year, but the vast majority of Vikings fans are happy with our HC.

Thursday, December 13

·        Chargers at Chiefs - I like both squads, so I'm going Chiefs in Arrowhead that makes the difference.

Saturday, December 15

·        Texans at Jets - Rebound game.

·        Browns at Broncos - I don't think I've picked the Browns so many times in one season...ever!  Just not impressed at all with Denver.  Even at home.

·        Texans at Jets - By land or by sea, Jets suck.

      ·        Browns at Broncos  Cleveland is in favor but this is still a tough game and they're 1-5 on the road (sole win vs. Bengals squad with 5 straight losses.)

Chargers are hot right now (that first half against Pittsburgh aside) but I am going to play it safe and take the Chiefs.

Well, we got Charlie Brown'd by the Chargers - and I for one do not feel an ounce of shame.

Nope.  I was rooting for them the whole time.  What a great game and a fantastic finish with a truly gutsy call to win instead of play OT.

It's not often that two teams relocate to one city and go on to play some of the best football in the league.  LA couldn't have asked for a better start to build two separate fanbases.

D'accord, a fun game to watch all the way.  And it is a nice boon for LA, the second largest city in the country, who was ridiculously and unjustly shut out of football for just over two decades. 

The initial "over" number came in.  By one half point.  Thanks to an atypical late two point try and conversion. On the final play of the game.  The Vegas oddsmakers know what they're doing.

Rick!  You spoke French!  *kisses up and down Rick's arm*

Excuse me.  Lost myself in the moment!

Saturday, December 15

·        Texans at Jets

·        Browns at Broncos (MATT DISAGREES!!)  Saturday Night Drama!  I think home field helps the Broncos pull it off.  However, this has been Cleveland's year for righting the ship, and if they want to continue breaking streaks, here's one to cross off: the Browns have lost eleven times in a row to the Broncos (5-23 overall)

"Ah, la vache!"  Other than hello and goodbye and a few idioms, that's about the limit of my Français. "C'est dommage."  Where's Philippe when we need him?


Sunday, December 16

·        Cardinals at Falcons Birds of a feather stink together.

·        Lions at Bills

·        Packers at Bears

·        Raiders at Bengals

·        Cowboys at Colts Colts still in it surprisingly but Cowboys too hot

·      Dolphins at Vikings

·      Titans at Giants  Should be close

·      Redskins at Jaguars  Two clubs on which I would not bet a nickel at present, so I go home

·     Buccaneers at Ravens Baltimore's defense is the decider

·     Seahawks at 49ers

·     Patriots at Steelers NE just lost embarrassingly but Pitt has swooned after their strong start

·     Eagles at Rams Playoffs right around the corner... Goff needs to restore his confidence against Philly's once was defense

Monday, December 17

·      Saints at Panthers Panthers are 5-1 at home but Brees will destroy their secondary

Well, just like that my one-game lead is toast.  I'm kind of glad; for the Browns to be in playoff contention after their recent/typical lamentable fortunes makes this AFC North fan proud.

If the Steelers beat the Patriots, then and only then will I entertain the possibility that the games are fixed.  Anyway:

Sunday, December 16

·        Cardinals at Falcons

·        Lions at Bills

·        Packers at Bears

·        Raiders at Bengals

·        Cowboys at Colts

·        Dolphins at Vikings

·        Titans at Giants (MATT DISAGREES!!)

·        Redskins at Jaguars

·        Buccaneers at Ravens

·        Seahawks at 49ers

·        Patriots at Steelers

·        Eagles at Rams

Monday, December 17

·        Saints at Panthers

Only one disagree!  And it's me taking the Giants!  Ugh.  I don't feel so good...
