For a few National Football League teams Week 15 is there entire season.  There has already been an “upset” this week as San Diego Chargers defeated the AFC best, Denver Broncos.  Once fans and the media started “predicting” a Denver/Seattle Super Bowl both teams just crumbled.  Will Seattle bounce back after being defeated by their rival, the 49ers?

This could not help the Broncos win

Other storylines that will come out Sunday and Monday.

  1. Brady with no Gronk- The Pats can lock up the AFC East, but they will have to do it without the best TE in the NFL.  They will be going against the Dolphins who are still playing for the Wild Card spot.
  2. The Red Tour- What a year for DC!  After the way the Redskins ended the 2012 season. People were on the band wagon and ready to see the Skins return to Championship form.  In case you didn’t get the memo the Redskins have have played like the Black Plague.  RG3 has proven to be a bust for the season.  His leg is not an excuse anymore.  Then there are the Shanahans.  Pops wanted to sit RG3 and his son said not so fast my friend.  Also, Mike Shanahan is rumored to not be coming back to the team.  Will he come back? Does anyone really care? The person caught in this storm is Kirk Cousins.  He has shown the ability to play in the NFL and he will have the opprotunity to show that Sunday at the sorry Atlanta Falcons.  This storyline would be a great sequel to Taylor Swift’s Red album.
  3. In the Game of the Week the Cincy Pussy Cats travel to the Pittsburgh Rust.  The Bengals never play good with their backs against the wall, but they will have the opprotunity to show that they are not the Chargers of the AFC North.  The Steelers must win out if they plan on playing on in January.

Week 14 NFL Picks

As we come down the home stretch of the NFL season, there are a few teams that need to make a move, while others need to move out of the way.

Teams that need W’s this week

  • Kansas City- Yes, a win over Washington can go a long way.  Them having a banged up defense is no longer an excuse.  After three straight loses in a tough AFC, we will see how good KC really is.
  • Dallas- This game is set up to be be a “How ’bout them Cowboys” fail game.  They will be going against a Jay Cutlerless Bears team.
  • Carolina- Are they really a contender? There will be an opprotunity to pickup a W against a divisional tough rival.  To stay in the Wild Card race or take the division lead, a win must be put on the board.

Those pretenders that can stop pretending

  • New York Football Giants- If they want to make history, the time is now.  Take a dump or get off the toilet!
  • Detroit- The NFC North has been their’s to lose, and it appears that they are trying to do so.  Minnesota has wasted the great talent, Adrian Peterson, and Chicago and Green Bay are playing with 41st string QB’s.  If the want to go to the playoffs the time is now.
  • San Francisco-  After being blown out by Seattle in the first meeting San Fran is bound to make this a game.  If the 49ers want to have opposing teams playing at Candlestick Park in the playoffs, they need to win this huge game.
