NFL Week 13 down and we are nearing the end of the regular season. There were some games with implications. There were games that ruined the chance of playoff appearances, some which kept teams in it and some that virtually locked their chances to get in. As always, the teams that are bolded are the teams that won their respective matches. Dashed to the right are the teams that I picked to win. Overall, not that bad for this week.
Cowboys at Vikings - Vikings
Lions at Saints – Saints
Rams at Patriots – Patriots
Broncos at Jaguars – Broncos
49ers at Bears – 49ers
Texans at Packers – Packers
Chiefs at Falcons – Chiefs
Dolphins at Ravens – Ravens
Eagles at Bengals – Eagles
Bills at Raiders – Raiders
Buccaneers at Chargers – Chargers
Giants at Steelers – Steelers
Redskins at Cardinals – Cardinals
Panthers at Seahawks – Seahawks
Colts at Jets – Colts
Top 3 take-aways from NFL Week 13
1. I know I am not the only one that feels this way but I have been more outspoken than most. It seems more and more that I do not watch football for the product anymore. I find myself more focused on my fantasy team than I do on actual games. The product put forth in the NFL seems to take a downward spiral from week to week. Whether it’s the NFL officiating of the sheer fact that the CBA ruined a team’s ability to properly prepare, I do not know. However, what I do know is this. The NFL should thank the fantasy football world for the ratings they manage to have. Otherwise, where would the NFL be?
2. The Cowboys are 11-1 and just continue to win games in different way. Home field advantage is all but a forgone conclusion for them moving forward, barring any hiccups in the last few weeks of the season. I am exited to see how this young duo will hold-up in a different environment that is the post-season.
3. How in the world are any of the Jets Quarterbacks still employed? I understand we are a QB starved league and all but, damn, this is getting out of hand. Along with that, isn’t Todd Bowles a "defensive minded" coach? If so, why hasn’t Revis been moved to safety? Why are they so damn terrible? This is getting pretty pathetic.
