The Backdrop 

Happy New Year’s and THANK YOU to all of our readers in 2017. This was a new weekly article for us this season and we will continue to expand it next year, as we look for more general NFL centric reads to compliment our weekly avalanche of Jets #content. This has been an up and down season for the league, but the quality of play has picked up the previous month to help weather the storm of losing so many key players to injury. Most NFL fans now settle into our sad yearly tradition of rooting for anybody except New England to win the Super Bowl. PLEASE GOD!

A Three Team Tease Is Always A Bad Idea But…

  • New England (-9), Pittsburgh (-4.5), Chargers (-1.5)

The Patriots and Steelers need to lock in their respective seeds against bad teams. It is a do or die game for the Chargers against a dead Raiders team.

Record: 9-7

Primetime Parlay

  • 49ers (-1), Chargers (-7.5)

The Rams will be resting their starters to help Jimmy G keep on rolling. See above for the Chargers, who won’t blow this to Oakland and should get the help needed to snag a wild card.

Record: 5-11

Straight Up 

  • Saints (-7)

Too much on the line for New Orleans not to handle business against a dismal Bucs team.

Record: 10-6

FanDuel Fun 

  • QB – Tom Brady
  • RB – Alvin Kamara
  • RB – DaVonta Freeman
  • WR – Mike Wallace
  • WR – Jarvis Landry
  • WR – Larry Fitzgerald
  • TE – Delanie Walker
  • K – Graham Gano
  • D – Philadelphia Eagles

Overrated Snack of the Week  

Pigs in a blanket! 

Unlike the slider, which shrinks down well from the burger, the same cannot be said for pigs in a blanket shrinking down from the hot dog. There is too many other better options out there to settle for a shrunken down, often microwaved hot dog. You will also end up eating 42 of these and then feeling like you need to shower immediately after and nap for five hours.

Random Internet Complaint 

The evergreen sports fan who takes criticism of his/her favorite team personally and decides to wage online war against all individuals who do not think their team is the greatest franchise to ever step foot on the field.

Assorted Predictions

  • The Chargers will be the AFC’s final wild card team.
  • The Falcons will be the NFC’s final wild card team.
  • The Saints will win the NFC South.
  • Jacksonville will stay in the #3 seed and get knocked out in round one.

NFL/GM Coach Reminders  

  • If your game means nothing, play the young pups.
  • If it is time to tank, tank appropriately.
  • How is Hue Jackson not one of the coaches who will definitely be fired?
