I'm really hoping this is just the Ravens getting hot while the league has plenty of time to adapt and figure them out...

Gotta say I've been rather impressed with Lamar's progress as an actual passer this season. Last year, and even early this season it often looked like he couldn't throw an accurate ball to save his life, overthrowing balls nonstop. He seems to be really finding his footing now though as an actual QB, who just so happens to also be the fastest, most agile mofo on the field most days. Dude is a complete defensive nightmare now.



Honestly, I'm not drinking the Ravens/Lamar kool-aid yet. Do the NFL teams have amnesia? The Browns gave us the blueprint on shutting them down early in the season. If you can collapse the pocket, Ravens offense goes to sleep and Lamar starts throwing interceptions. Teams are focusing too much on the rush defense and pass defense with the Ravens which is why we have this illusion of a great offensive Ravens team. That being said, their defense is still dangerous, and Lamar's crazy unpredictable runs are a huge threat to keep their downs alive.

I personally can't wait until they get exposed in the playoffs. And I still believe Lamar is gonna get hurt, and that he is a shit passer under pressure.

OK, so what are they supposed to focus on?

Also, who is supposed to expose them in the playoffs?



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

The Rams got routed even moreso than the Packers. The Rams lost by a bigger margin, couldn't score a TD and they played at home.

In the bigger playoff picture, it's narrowing down to one wild card between SF and SEA, and one wild card between GB and MIN. It's hard to see any of those four teams miss the playoffs despite the NFC North duo suffering embarrassing defeats during this season. In the NFC we might even see five teams with 12+ wins in the playoffs.

On the other hand, the AFC is wide open. While Buffalo is on track to get a wild card with relative ease (8-3 record), there is a bunch of teams at 6-5 and 5-6 that could sneak into the playoffs with a final record of 9-7. Or perhaps one of those inconsistent teams can get their act together and achieve 10 wins.

Cowboys will win against the cheaters known as the patriots.

You guys are lucky the rest of your division sucks so bad, or you'd be a sixth seed at best.

You're lucky the Refs are being paid off by the Patriots and the NFL won't do anything about it or else you wouldn't have won a super bowl.



So the hall of fame is going to have 20 new members in its next class and it looks like Larry Centers still will not make it in what a crock. The only active back field player that might have a chance of getting more then his 827 career receptions is Christian McCaffrey.

Cowboys' fan accusing the Patriots of refball. Would you like to be pot or kettle?

Week 13 picks.

I picked the Panthers to win in the game Packers@Giants. Obviously means Packers after you've changed it.

Good to see that the Vikings have to travel to Seattle. Hopefully they'll get a beating.

Man, I might have to go back and change a few picks as I'm not confident in several of my week 13 picks.

Here are a few games I highly encourage you all to watch.
49ers @ Ravens - This game will either expose Baltimore for the fakes I believe they are or make me a believer in them.
Browns @ Steelers - Not only is this a gritty rivalry, but a lot of players are gonna get hurt... real bad. Steelers want blood after last week's incident. Winner has a stronger chance of making that 6th AFC playoff spot
Buffalo and Dallas should be a good turkey day game
