Hi everyone! Today I want to discuss which games I got right and wrong! I predicted that the Bears would beat the Lions 25-22, but the final score was 16-14 Bears over the Lions. The Bears scored a game-winning field goal and the Lions continued to find ways to lose the game. I predicted that the Bills would beat the Saints 30-27, but the final score was 31-6 Bills over the Saints in a blowout. The Bills offense and defense played very well and the Saints did not get anything going except for the touchdown they put together. I predicted that the Patriots would beat the Titans 36-29, but the final score was 36-13 Patriots over the Titans. The Titans just could not get their offense going to beat the Patriots and the Patriots are playing much better football. My prediction there was 16 points away from predicting the correct score! I predicted that the Buccaneers would beat the Colts 35-27, but the final score was 38-31 Buccaneers over the Colts. The Colts almost scored a touchdown after they had a big return inside Buccaneers territory. Tom Brady rallied to win the game for the Bucs after being down pretty much in the entire quarter. I predicted that the Packers would beat the Rams 30-17, but the final score was 36-28 Packers over the Rams in a close game. The Packers offense did just enough to finish the game to beat the Rams. I predicted that the Ravens would beat the Browns 31-28, but the final score was 16-10 Ravens over the Browns in a close game, but a low scoring game. I predicted that the Washington Football Team would beat the Seahawks 29-10, but the final score was 17-15 Washington Football Team over the Seahawks in a very close game. The Football Team almost beat themselves in the end. Luckily for them, there was an illegal shift by the Seahawks which they had an outside kick recovery. If there was not an illegal shift by the Seahawks, then they would have beaten the Football Team.
I predicted that the Cowboys would beat the Raiders 36-29, but the final score was 33-30 Raiders over the Cowboys in overtime thriller. The Raiders kicked a game-winning field goal after the Cowboys offense couldn’t get the ball down the field when they got the ball first. I predicted that the Steelers would beat the Bengals 29-19, but the final score was 41-10 Bengals over the Steelers in a huge blowout. I predicted that the Eagles would beat the Giants 33-20, but the final score was 13-7 Giants over the Eagles in a very close game, but a low scoring game. The Eagles offense did not really get the ball down the field. However, they were able to get it down the field, but they missed an opportunity to win the game. The wide receiver for the Eagles Jalen Reagor dropped 2 game-winning touchdown passes and it cost the Eagles the game there. So yeah, I think the Eagles should have won that game. I predicted that the Chargers would beat the Broncos 24-20, but the final score was 28-13 Broncos over the Chargers. I predicted that the Vikings would beat the 49ers 36-33, but the final score was 34-26 49ers over the Vikings in a close game.
So, I have gotten 7 out of 12 picks correct! Now, let’s get to the week 13 picks, shall we?! The first game I will predict is the Colts @Texans game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Colts will beat the Texans 34-17. The next game I will predict is the Vikings @Lions game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Vikings will beat the Lions 27-17. The Lions just keep finding ways to lose games and they will certainly find a way to lose this one to the Vikings. The next game I will predict is the Buccaneers @Falcons game, the divisional rivalries. I think this might be a good game. Both of these teams are coming off with their wins last week and are fighting for their playoff spots. I am going to give the edge to the Buccaneers over the Falcons in a close game 29-23. I think the Falcons will eventually find a way to lose this game to Tom Brady who can come back and win games when he is down so big like the Super Bowl while Tom Brady was with the Patriots when they came back being down 28-3 against the Falcons. Yeah, I don’t see that happening again anytime soon unless something changes. The next game I will predict is the Eagles @Jets game. I think the Eagles will beat the Jets 28-13. The next game I will predict is the Cardinals @Bears game. The Cardinals are coming off with a much-needed bye week given that they have some injuries and the Bears are coming off with their win over the Lions on Thanksgiving. The Cardinals are hoping that Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins will be playing tomorrow. The Bears will be starting the quarterback Andy Dalton. They will be without Justin Fields, Allen Robinson, wide receiver, and a defensive linebacker/defensive end Akiem Hicks. However, Robert Quinn a defensive player will be playing tomorrow which is somebody who the Cardinals have to block to not let him ruin your game plan. The weather in Chicago might be pretty cold and it could possibly have an impact on both teams especially the Cardinals if it is raining there. The Cardinals may not experience the cold weather, but they may have it tomorrow. The Cardinals still must get off to a good start. Let the Bears get the ball first to put your defense up first, don’t shoot yourselves in the foot, don’t let the cold weather bother you, focus on catching the ball, wear good gloves if you need to, stop the run, pressure Andy Dalton, get some turnovers, create some big plays, get the Bears into 3rd and longs, score many touchdowns as you can, take what the defense gives you and a lot more. I do think the Cardinals will beat the Bears 31-16. The Cardinals just need to show that they can be a dangerous team to watch and they have to just stay ahead of the Green Bay Packers who have a bye week. The next game I will predict is the Chargers @Bengals game. I think this should be a close game. I think the Bengals will beat the Chargers 29-24. The next game I will predict is the Jaguars @Rams game. I think the Rams should beat the Jags pretty easily 37-16. The Rams have to win this game because if they don’t, I’m going to be stunned and that might cost their chances of winning the division and it could put the Rams in a tough spot for the playoffs. The next game I will predict is the Washington Football Team @Raiders game. Both of these teams are coming off with their wins last week. I think the Raiders will beat the Football Team 33-21. The next game I will predict is the Ravens @Steelers game, the divisional rivalries. I think this should be a pretty good game. However, I think the Ravens will beat the Steelers 31-17. The Steelers have not been playing as good of the football team like they used to play particularity because of their offensive struggles. The next game I will predict is the 49ers @Seahawks game, the divisional rivalries. I honestly think the 49ers will beat the Seahawks 35-24. The Seahawks season is pretty much over and they have not played good football this season. The next game I will predict is the Broncos @Chiefs game, the divisional rivalries on Sunday Night Football. I think this should be a pretty close game. I am going to give the edge to the Chiefs over the Broncos 27-24. I think the Chiefs fans will make it a little bit too much for the Broncos to overcome and it is going to be pretty packed in Arrowhead. The last game I will predict is the Patriots @Bills game, the divisional rivalries on Monday Night Football. This is the game match-up that everyone has been waiting for to watch. Both of these teams are head to head in the AFC divisional rivalry. I think this should be a very close game. I am going to barely give the edge to the Bills over the Patriots 37-34 in a shootout.
