NFL Week 6 Quick Picks

Last week I had my best record this season nailing nine out of 13 games correctly. Hopefully, I can get 10 with the forthcoming slate of games. It begins on Thursday with two teams coming off their first loss. Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills: The Chiefs suffered their first loss last week to the Raiders while the Bills got lambasted by the Tennessee Titans just a few night ...

NFL Week 5 Short Takes

Another week has passed in the NFL and more games affected by COVID-19. But games were played some with surprising results and others with an expected finish. A quick breakdown of each follows. Chicago 20 / Tampa 19: Is Tom Brady approaching the end of the road? He certainly hasn’t been playing “Tom Brady-like.” He got blasted by media and fans for apparently forgetting which ...

The Daniel Jones Dilemma

There is a growing concern for the New York Giants. This season starting with a winless 0-5 record is embarrassing. Especially after losing to the Dallas Cowboys late in the fourth quarter after two back-to-back monster gains, the Giants gave up in the air to Michael Gallup. Setting up the game-winning field goal for Dallas to notch over the G-Men in a 34-37 victory in Arlingto ...

NFL Week 5 Quick Picks

As we enter Week 5 in the NFL, thanks to the postponement of the Titans/Steelers game last week I was spared having either a .500 record or with a Steelers win, nine correct predictions in 16 games. So after scoring eight of those games correctly I also missed seven. So far for this weekend’s games, we have only 14 scheduled with two teams having a bye (Detroit and Green Bay). ...

NFL Week 4 Short Takes

With the fourth week of the NFL season in the books, one game never happened and another was rescheduled without the starting quarterback. Here are my week #4 short takes for the games that happened. Kansas City 26 / New England 10: Cam Newton didn’t play because of COVID but the question is, “would he have made a difference?” I think not. The Chiefs are way ahead of every oth ...

NFL Week 4 Quick Picks

It’s week four in the National Football League and in forecasting this weekend’s slate of games I’ll try to improve on the losing record I posted last week. The action begins on Thursday with what most regard as a real snoozer of a game as the winless Denver Broncos take on the equally 0-3 New York Jets. Denver Broncos at New York Jets In an empty stadium, the worst team in t ...

NFL Week 3 Short Takes

My forecast of NFL games for week three did not turn out so well. Seven games right, nine games wrong, with one game coming close to what I had called. That would be the Cleveland Browns/Washington football team result for which I had said the browns would win 34-20 and the final was 31-20. Very briefly, here is my immediate reaction to what took place on the field last Thursd ...

NFL Week 3 Quick Picks

Thursday Night Football September 24th Miami Dolphins at Jacksonville Many had predicted the Jaguars to be the worst team in football but after a 1-1 start with Gardner Minshew looking like an all-pro quarterback, Jacksonville is far from being the worst team in the NFL. That belongs to the New York Jets or this Dolphins team they will face on Thursday night. Prediction: Ja ...

Will Super Bowl LV Be a Not-So-Super Bowl?

Most National Football League fans know that teams are allowing none to very few fans in their respective stadiums thus far in the 2020 season due to the coronavirus. That brings to mind the question of “if this trend continues to Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida, how many fans will be sitting in the seats of Raymond James Stadium, this season’s Super Bowl host?” The venue has ...
