The Prognosticator – Thanksgiving Edition

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator.  May it be your drumstick.

 

With a short week this week for us at FantasySharks and the fact that I’m with friends in Kentucky this week, I’ve put together what I can.  We spent a couple of days in Canada at Niagara Falls on the way to Kentucky, an area I had never seen before, and it was quite a sight.  Did you know the first person to go over the falls was a woman in a barrel and she brought her cat?  They survived just fine with no broken anything.  The next person tried it 10 years later in a steel capsule and he spent 3 months in the hospital recovering from two broken knee caps and various other broken things.  It made me wonder whether a cat always landing on its feet was the reason.

Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions        Thursday 12:30p

Don’t look now but Michael Vick is turning into a real NFL QB.  This could be very, very scary.

 

Prediction: Falcons 23 – Lions 20


Denver Broncos at Dallas Cowboys       Thursday  4:15p

The Broncos are just too dominant on the ground.

 

Prediction: Broncos 28 – Cowboys 24


Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday    1:00p

A heavy dose of Thomas Jones and Defense will keep the Bears in the game.  The Bucs however will walk away with the W but it won’t be pretty.

 

Prediction: Buccaneers 24 – Bears 20


Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals   Sunday    1:00p

That other RB continues to see time.  The Bengals emphasize their passing game as usual.

 

Prediction: Bengals 27 – Ravens 13


St. Louis Rams at Houston Texans       Sunday    1:00p

The Rams will be dominant both on the ground and in the air but the coaching staff will manage to lose the game.  The Texans will run well.

 

Prediction: Texans 28 – Rams 27


San Francisco 49ers at Tennessee Titans     Sunday    1:00p

A decent day in the air for the Titans.

 

Prediction: Titans 24 – 49’ers 20


Carolina Panthers at Buffalo Bills        Sunday    1:00p

The Panthers passing game the story here. 

 

Prediction: Panthers 32 – Bills 17


San Diego Chargers at Washington Redskins  Sunday    1:00p

Drew Brees takes his turn and wins this one for the Chargers.

 

Prediction: Chargers 30 – Redskins 27


New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs   Sunday    1:00p

Chiefs are favored and that is a little silly.  Patriots offense will click against the Chiefs and the Chiefs don’t match up that well with the Patriots D.

 

Prediction: Patriots 28 – Chiefs 24


Cleveland Browns at Minnesota Vikings    Sunday    1:00p

Trent Dilfer packs in a decent day but the Vikings are starting to figure out how to win by the hair on their chinny-chin-chins.

 

Prediction: Vikings 27 – Browns 20


Jacksonville Jaguars at Arizona Cardinals    Sunday    4:05p

Jaguars are on a roll.  Welcome back Anquan Boldin.

 

Prediction: Jaguars 28 – Cardinals 24


Miami Dolphins at Oakland Raiders      Sunday    4:05p

The Dolphins will have a tough day slowing the Raiders passing game down.  Randy Moss and Jerry Porter do well.

 

Prediction: Raiders 31 – Dolphins 14


Green Bay Packers at Philadelphia Eagles  Sunday    4:15p

A lot of passing in this contest from both teams.  If you recall, we said Sam Gado was about to demonstrate why he was low on the depth chart to start with last week.  Hopefully you heeded the advice.  He’ll continue to not perform well here.

 

Prediction: Eagles 21 – Packers 20


New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks     Sunday    4:15p

The Giants will pass well and will play well but the Seahawks are just too much.  If they only played a half they’d have a chance but four whole quarters against the Seahawks is too much to ask.

 

Prediction: Seahawks 33 – Giants 24


New Orleans Saints at New York Jets        Sunday    8:30p

It’s been a while for the Jets.  Curtis Martin in line for a big one here.

 

Prediction: Jets 21 – Saints 14


Pittsburgh Steelers at Indianapolis Colts   Monday    9:00p

Good luck Steelers. 

 

Prediction: Colts 35 – Steelers 24
