My VERY late Week 16 NFL Preview

Yeah I know:  I’m a week too late with this post.  Hey, this is what happens when you change web hosting services and domain names.

At any rate…

Game of the Week

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons. This is for all the marbles in the NFC South (and arguably the NFC, period).  The Saints hurt themselves by losing in Baltimore last week, thus leaving them 2 games behind the Falcons.  And while it’s unlikely the Falcons will lose to the Panthers next week, it’s all about the Saints sending a message.  That message would be the following:  “we can – and WILL – win in your house in the playoffs”.  Unfortunately for the Saints, I do not see that happening.  Falcons 24, Saints 21.

“Who Gives a Damn?” Game of the Week

Texans at Broncos. The only reason people would pay attention to this game is if they have gambling addictions.

Upset Special

Raiders over Colts. The Colts are coming off an emotional home victory over the Jaguars last Sunday to keep their AFC South championship hopes alive – which leads to the classic “letdown”.  The Raiders are playing well as of late, and they can run the football on almost everybody (except my Steelers, of course).  Last I checked, the Colts have had trouble stopping the run this season.  The biggest factor of all is that this game will be played in Oakland, and the Colts have not been the best team outdoors this season.
