As I wrote in my last Wildcard weekend post, these playoffs are beautiful! This divisional round is going to be interesting because we have QB, Defensive and even Special teams battles. So here we go:
Today at 4:35 pm Colts vs Chiefs
This is in a fun one for one reason: DEFENSE. Deadass this is going to be a defensive clash because we know one thing for sure both offenses are gonna go BRAZY! Personally I see Darius Leonard having a monster game and the Colts beating Mahomes, I trust the Colts D-Line to apply pressure and force turnovers. 24-7 Colts win.
Today at 8:15 pm Cowboys vs Rams
Let’s keep it real, the dummy Dallas Cowboys found the secret sauce…smh…Run the ball and DEFENSE! Again this game will be played in the trenches, which Line wins and I trust the Dallas O line to bully Aaron Donald and Suh. I trust Damarcus Lawrence and Jaylon Smith to apply pressure on Goff. Dallas wins 20-14.
Tomorrow at 1:05 pm Patriots vs Chargers
Controversial pick but I have the Chargers STEAMROLLING the Pats. Why? Patriots have no reliable receivers…yes you heard me…they have NO RECEIVERS ! Edleman is the closest to a true #1 but he is inconsistent and the Chargers secondary will take him out. On every level DEFENSE, Special Teams, Offense the Chargers are a better team. Even Quarterback play, I’d rather have Rivers than 42 year old Brady. 35-7 Chargers BLOW that back out.
Tomorrow at 4:40 pm Saints vs Eagles
This one was hard very very hard to predict but I’m going soft on this one, Saints take this by a field goal and here is why: the Eagles should have lost last week. I know that sounds weird or cringe but we gotta keep it real: the Football Gods are real and so is Karma. Saints lost a heart breaker in Minnesota last year and this year is revenge, on top of that Brees is amazing in the Superdome, I predict a 400 yard 5 TD game, Saints take this one 45-40.
I don’t know what’s more juicy, a fresh watermelon on a hot summer day or Lamar Jackson running between tackles for a 30 yard TD. I’m looking forward to both! Here are my predictions for this JUICY weekend!
Today 4:35 pm Colts vs Texans
Texans: I can salute the Colts amazing O-Line and what Andrew Luck has been doing this season, I can salute Darius Leonard (Defensive player of the year candidate) but I can’t ignore one guy TYRANN MATHIEU ! Plain and simple the defense is going to win this game for Houston. This game will be a 32-27 shootout with the last 4 minutes 4th quarter being the deciding factor. I trust J J Watt or The Honey Badger to create turnovers. Watt has a career high 7 Forced Fumbles and Mathieu is having a pro bowl worthy season. On top of that the Texans are 6-2 at home, after this they’ll be 7-2.
Today at 8:15 pm Seahawks vs Cowboys
Cowboys: I HATE THE BOYS…If you’ve read this blog you know that…but I know football and the Cowboys are better than the Hawks. One simple reason: Zeke will be unleashed. He averages 20 rushes and 112 yards vs the Hawks (according to PFF) which gives Dak enough time to find Beasley and Cooper on the seam. Cowboys control the pace and that’s how they win tonight. 18-7 then they get slapped by the Rams/Saints next week and my smile is bigger than Zeke in this pic!
Tomorrow at 1:05 pm Chargers vs Ravens
Ravens: Am I a Ravens fan? Is China hacking phones? Is Trump gonna win in 2020? Do my balls stink? Yes, Yes, Yes and ABSOLUTELY. Marty Morningweg is a terrible Coordinator but he’s consistent, he’s gonna make us run the ball 40 times. LaMARVELOUS Jackson and Gus “the Bus” Edwards which will kill the clock and force Rivers to throw risky passes that Marlon Humperys will intercept. 21-14 tough physical game.
Tomorrow at 4:40 pm Eagles vs Bears
Bears: Sorry Eagles fans Nick Foles will run out of magic. We all know about the Bears defense, the only way they lose is if Trubisky gets 3 or more turnovers. The Bears defense alone can take them to the SB and despite the late game heroics of Foles I can’t imagine an Eagles win. 34-28 nail bitter with Khalil Mack getting a pick 6 or a scoop and score fumble recovery.
I love Week 15-17 of the NFL season, because you find out who has balls (literally). The defenses play better, offenses thrive or die and special teams become special. Overall we see the same trends with the past 5 years: Cowboys barely make it in, Ravens flop :(, New England is 1st or 2nd seed and the NFC is a mess with one or two teams that are clearly above everyone. Here are 5 of my bold predictions of the next 2 weeks of football
- The Pats are done: Gronk can’t get separation, Brady’s O Line is trash, Bill isn’t making the right calls and the Pats defense is pathetic (Even with the refs help) The Dynasty is over, they will never make another Super Bowl. Praise God!
- The Bears are going to Atlanta: The Bears are better than the Rams and the Saints. This is not even a discussion…Trubisky is in the Dak Prescott “meh” QB discussion but let me make this clear, the Defense is why they’re making the SuperBowl
- Cowboys aint making the playoffs: they can’t sustain a consistent offense and the Eagles are gonna take this division with a 9-7 record under Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles
- Lamar Jackson will take the Ravens far: Every Ravens team that made it to the superbowl had two things in common, amazing runners and amazing defense. Lamar Jackson opens up the run game so much and the defense leads the league in turnovers, we know how this goes!
- The Chargers are the best team in the NFL: I hate to say it but its the truth, even with their stars injured its a “Next Man Up” mentality, this team is playing possessed. That’s what you need in come January, strong defense and resilient O.
Long story short, they’re a boosted franchise and team. They have literally a decade of playoff irrelevance and all of a sudden they have a bomb ass season with the greatest o-line of our generation and niggas think they actually matter…NO. HELL TO THE NO. The issue here lies in the promotion and the hype behind the Dallas Cowboys, which is literally the NFL’s fault. Dak Prescott is amazing, so is Zeke and it would take a dummy to think that they’re not, I will not dispute this. I know they’re getting co-rookie of the year, they deserve it, not MVP. Now here we must acknowledge that despite they’re amazing talent the fact still remains, there’s a crazy hype machine behind them and I hate it. People gon pretend that this aint the same franchise that literally hasn’t made it to the superbowl since the 90s. Cowboys fans are the most delusional bunch to ever grace sports. They’re equatable to that guy at the bar that gets curved 6 times a night and still believes he has game, nah fam you don’t. Until they actually make it to the Superbowl (they won’t) I will doubt them and have no belief in them. Now i’m not a pure hater (even though i hate the stupid cowboys) I objectively like seeing them play. They’re a top 3 regular season team in 2016-2017 but will they get it done? No. Rookie QB, Rookie RB, a disgruntled HOF Tight End, dive WR who doesn’t deliver in the clutch, average to mediocre defense, that BAAAAAD MAN Aaron Rodges will carve this pumpkin ass cowboys D. This goes back to the essence of my hatred, the culture of hype, just because something seems and is presented as a brownie doesn’t mean its not square shaped poop. You need too look deeply at what it truly is. In summation, fuck the cowboys, their fans and the NFL media for treating them like they matter.
After Atlanta just slapped the Seahawks (word to Ciara and her cursed kitty) I can see them beating Greenbay and going to the Superbowl
Cowboys are getting merked by Greenbay (32-24)
New England is gonna munch the Texans (40-21)
Kansas city shocks the dumbass NFL media and slaps the Steelers (27-24)
