Seattle at Baltimore should not be a pick 'em. Baltimore is utterly depleted by injuries on both sides of the ball. Seattle should win easy, even if they are playing an early game on the east coast.
Philly gets no respect after beating the Pats. New England only a 3 point favorite in Houston, probably without Gronk and Edelman yet again. I’m a little surprised Arizona is such a big favorite tonight.
NFL.com has me confused. They are saying Carolina need one more win or a Green Bay loss to clinch a first round bye. The worst Carolina can do is 12-4. The best Green Bay can do is 12-4. Carolina has already beaten Green Bay in a head-to-head. Why isn’t Carolina guaranteed a first round bye?
It’s possible for there to be a three-way tie between Green Bay, Arizona, and Carolina such that Carolina loses the tiebreakers and ends up third. In that scenario, the head-to-head wouldn’t apply, and Carolina would lose out with the worst in-conference record. Their last 4 games, which they’d have lost, are all NFC teams.
I’m actively rooting for the Browns to lose now. I’m afraid they might win this one for absolutely no fucking reason whatsoever and drop from the #1 pick to the #3 pick, we miss another chance at a top QB, and continue to win 4-7 games for the next 5 years.
They’ll take a QB if they can get one of the top ones.
Manziel is doubly fighting for his life. He needs to do well to have any value and any chance to play in the NFL, but he also would ruin the Browns draft position with any potential wins, decreasing the chance they can get a top QB prospect. He’ll be playing his ass off out there while everyone else has checked out for the season.
Not for “no fucking reason”, San Francisco is just straight up sad this year. This looks like the late-70s Niners, for whom 3-11 was a good season. Meanwhile, your Brownies had better check their mirrors, those ratbirds look like they are trying to chase Cleveland to the bottom.
