Mickey’s back for another week while Vinnie’s still in the hospital. Split last weeks games…not great, but not bad. Why don’t we take a special look at this Thanksgiving Day games since it’s not a holiday without Turkey, stuffing and some action on the games!
Jacksonville @ New York Jets (-4)
Ugh. Both teams could barely move the ball (what happened Chad?) And then the Jets win the game by 3 and don’t cover. I guess it was closer than it thought it was going to be.
Cincinnati @ San Diego (+3)
Like I said San Diego is just awful, although it was nice to see David Boston getting back into the swing of things. Cincinnati just looks terrific right now. The Buggles are finally gone. Never a doubt about the outcome of this one.
Onto this weeks gems:
Green Bay @ Detroit (+7)
I like Detroit in this one. Detroit as witnessed by one of the longest road game loosing streaks in NFL history shows that this is not a good road team. On the other hand. They’ve been playing pretty well at home lately. Favre still seems to be hurting a bit, but Ahman Green has looked fabulous. I just see a closer game than 7 points. Take Detroit +7 (3 stars)
Miami @ Dallas (-3)
Both of these teams are absolutely desperate for a win. Miami is still in the wildcard hunt, but needs to keep pace. Dallas has the surging Eagles right on their tail. You know Tuna and Jones will want a win in front of a national audience. But, Miami and Ricky Williams should be able to do some damage. Tough call on this one. I’ll take Miami and the 3 points in a squeaker. (1 star)
Detroit +7 (3 stars)
Miami +3 (1 star)
