And the law of averages is coming back to bite me. Some of my NFL Week 13 predictions went amiss because of the point spread, but there are a few surprises in there that really pushed my relative accuracy into a tailspin. I was amazed to see the Steelers destroy the Pats, but the Broncos’ stomping of the New York Jets is even more noteworthy.
Here are the rest of this week’s results:
I’m glad to see that the Baltimore Ravens are continuing their winning ways and the New York Giants continue to demonstrate why they are the Super Bowl champions, despite the absence of Plaxico Burress. I’m also quite impressed that the Indianapolis Colts managed to win with just 10 points and no offensive touchdowns.
During the Monday Night Football pregame, the analysts predicted who would make the playoffs. The legendary Emmitt Smith said that the Dallas Cowboys would not be attending the post-season, because the Atlanta Falcons and Washington Redskins would be nabbing the NFC Wild Card spots instead.
The Falcons maybe, but the Redskins? Sorry. The combination of Terrell Owens and Tony Romo is vastly superior to Jason Campbell and Santana Moss (though I have to hand it to Clinton Portis). We’ll see. Either way, wouldn’t it be great to see a NYJ-NYG Super Bowl matchup? Subway series, baby!
