2011 NFL Page

Week 13 NFL schedule

Eagles (4-7) @ Seahawks (4-7)—Long road trip on short work week (Jets/49ers lost last two Thursdays doing same thing) for Philly team that actually plays better on road (3-2) than at Linc (1-5), but Iggles’ season pretty much died Sunday night. Philly is 3-6 as a favorite this year, 2-2 on road- they’re 5-2 in last seven visits here, winning last three 27-3/27-20/26-7 in series where road team won last six meetings. Seattle is 6-1-1 vs spread in last eight games as underdog; they’re +5 in turnovers last three games, starting 10 of 38 drives in enemy territory, compared to just 2 of 35 for opponents. NFC East favorites are 6-11-1 in non-divisional games, 3-2-1 on road; NFC West home underdogs are 3-6-1. Three of last four Seahawk games stayed under total.

Jets (6-5) @ Redskins (4-7)—Washington snapped 6-game skid last week in Seattle, passing for 306 yards, giving them 582 passing yards in last two games, but they’ve turned ball over 2+ times in each of last eight games (-11), which is horrible. Jets are 5-1 this season when they have 2+ takeaways, but they only have one in last three games. Jets are 5-0 when they score more than 24 points, a figure Skins allowed just twice this season (Panthers/Dallas), 1-1 when they score exactly 24, 0-4 when they score less than 24. Redskins won eight of nine series games, with four of last six in series decided by 3 or less points; only Jet win was 3-0 here in ’93. Redskins/49ers are only two NFL teams that haven’t allowed a TD on offense/special teams this season. Four of Jets’ last five opponents currently have losing records, so no excuse for their not making playoffs.

Titans (6-5) @ Bills (5-6)—Buffalo is 4-0 when it scores 31+ points, 1-5 when it doesn’t, bad stat for team that plays December home games in western NY. Bills missed chance to pull upset last week in Swamp and get back over .500, now they’ve lost four games in row, allowing average of 33.5 ppg. Titans are 5-0 when they score 23+, 1-5 when they don’t; they’re 4-1-1 vs spread as a dog, 2-3 SU on road, winning at Cleveland/Carolina. Tennessee won last three series games by 2-1-24 points, with average total of 57; they won two of last three visits here, after losing previous six. Three of last four series games were won by 3 or less points. AFC East home favorites are 6-3-1 vs spread in non-divisional games; AFC South underdogs are 6-11-1, 4-7-1 on foreign soil. Titans’ last five games all stayed under total.

Chiefs (4-7) @ Bears (7-4)—First home start for Hanie finds struggling Chiefs (one TD/last 41 drives, 7 turnovers/last 20) visiting Windy City having lost last four games by average score of 24-6, but former Bear Orton looms as quick sub for struggling journeyman Palko under center, which would help Chiefs dramatically, if Orton knows playbook. Bears had 5-game win streak snapped last week, as Hanie threw three picks, only second time this year Bears lost turnover battle. Chicago is 3-1 as home favorite, winning last three at soldier Field, 39-10/37-13/31-20. Home side won last four series games, with average total in last six, 32.0; Chiefs lost four of five visits here, but only one of losses was by more than a FG. Chiefs’ last six games stayed under total; Chicago’s last four went over.

Raiders (7-4) @ Dolphins (3-8)—First-place Oakland won/covered last three games, scored 24+ points in last four, as Palmer settled in as starting QB. Raiders are 4-1-1 as an underdog this year, 3-0-1 on road- they’re 4-1 SU on road, with only loss by 3 at Buffalo (led 21-3 at half). Miami had 3-game win streak snapped last week at Dallas; they’ve covered last five games, winning last two at home by combined score of 55-17, only two games they’ve been favored in this year. Last three Fish losses were all by 3 or less points. Dolphins won eight of last ten series games, including 33-17 romp in Oakland LY; Raiders lost five of last six visits here, with three of last four losses by 3 or less points. AFC West road underdogs are 4-6-1 in non-divisional games. Under is 9-0-1 in last ten Miami games.

Bengals (7-4) @ Steelers (8-3)—Pitt (-3) won first meeting 24-17 in Queen City three weeks ago, in game where Bengals scored only a FG on three drives that started in Steeler territory. Cincy lost three of last four visits here, losing by 14-17-16 points; this series has been swept last four years. Bengals are 4-2 on road, 4-0-1 as road dogs, losing by 2 at Denver, 7 at Baltimore- they haven’t lost a game by more than 7 points. Steelers won six of last seven games, are 2-2 as home favorite, winning at home by 24-21-4-8 points, with loss to Ravens. Home teams are 1-4-1 vs spread in AFC North divisional games this year, with five of six games going over total. Five of last seven Bengal games went over; three of last four Steeler games stayed under. Average total in Bengals’ last four visits here is 32.8.

Ravens (8-3) @ Browns (4-7)— Baltimore won last six series games, with five wins by 10+ points, last four by combined score of 94-30; Ravens are 8-4 in town they used to call home, winning last three 37-27/16-0/20-10, but Ravens are just 2-3 on road, beating Rams (37-7)/Steelers (23-20), losing to Titans/Jags/Seattle, not an impressive resume. Cleveland’s last three games were decided by total of 8 points; in their last six games, Browns started just one drive in enemy territory, while opponents started 8 on Browns’ side of 50. Week 2 at Indy is only time this year Browns had better field position in a game, which is fatal for team with sketchy offense. Four of last five Cleveland home games stayed under total. Having extra three days to prepare after Thanksgiving game may give Ray Lewis time enough to heal and play here.

Falcons (7-4) @ Texans (8-3)—This was supposed to be Schaub vs his old team in potential Super Bowl preview, but Schaub is hurt and Texans are down to rookie #3 QB Yates, who played well last week before Kubiak pulled reins in while protecting lead in second half, since he had no other QB had Yates gotten hurt. Houston won/covered its last five games; they’re 4-1 as home favorite, with only loss to Raiders the week Al Davis died. Atlanta won five of last six games, with only loss to Saints in OT- they’ve also won last three away games. 10 of last 36 Houston drives started in enemy territory. Teams have only met twice, with home side winning both games. AFC South underdogs are 6-11-1 vs spread, 2-4 at home; NFC South favorites are 9-7-2, 3-3 on foreign soil. Last seven Atlanta games and six of last eight Texan tilts stayed under the total.

Panthers (3-8) @ Buccaneers (4-7)— Third week in row on road for Carolina, which is 3-0 if it allows 20 or less points, 0-8 when it doesn‘t; they’re 1-3 as road dogs this year, but covered only previous outdoor road game, at Chicago. Road team is 8-5 in last 13 series games; Panthers won six of last eight visits here, but were swept by Bucs LY for first time since ’02. Carolina lost six of its last eight games overall. Bucs lost five games in row, turning ball over 11 times in last three games, when they lost field position by 15-14-9 yards; they’re 3-2 at home, 1-2 as home favorites. Home side is 5-1 vs spread in NFC South divisional games this year, with five of the six staying under total. Five of last six Tampa bay games stayed under; four of last five Carolina road games went over. Fun game to watch; bad game to invest in.

Broncos (6-5) @ Vikings (2-9)—Fourth road game in five weeks for Tebow-led Denver, which is 5-1 since changing QB’s despite being outscored 60-30 in first half of those games. Broncos ran ball for average of 225.5 yards/game last six weeks, which takes ton of heat off their defense- they’re 0-5 this year when allowing more than 17 points. Vikings are 0-3 since their bye, allowing 32 ppg; they’re 1-4 at home, with only win vs Arizona. Home side lost four of last six series games, with four of last five decided by 4 or less points. Four of five Minnesota home games went over the total; last three Denver games stayed under. Viking coach Frazier showed no aptitude for game management last week, forgoing FG with 5:00 left when Minnesota was down 10. This is Denver’s first game on artificial turf this season.

Packers (11-0) @ Giants (6-5)—Big Blue lost last three games since beating Patriots, giving up average of 31 ppg, now unbeaten Pack comes to town with three extra days to prepare after Turkey Day win in Detroit. Green Bay is 4-2 as road favorite this year, winning by 7-10-11-6-7-12 points. Giants were riddled for 577 yards by machine-like Saints Monday; opponents converted 14 of last 23 3rd down plays against Giants, and started eight of last 34 drives in Jersey territory. Giants are 3-2 at home, losing by 11 to Seattle, by 7 to Eagles. Home team lost five of last six series games, with Pack winning last three visits here, 37-3/34-25/35-13. NFC East underdogs are 4-7 in non-divisional games, 0-2 as home dogs. NFC North favorites are 11-8, 4-2 on road. Four of last five Packer games went over the total.

Rams (2-9) @ 49ers (9-2)—Niners won five of last six series games, winning last three played here, 35-16/35-0/23-20ot; they’ve had three extra days to prepare after Turkey Day loss in Baltimore, now have to guard against complacency since they’ve already clinched division. Playing for first round bye is their motivation now. Rams are 1-4 as road underdogs, losing away games by 12-31-27-6 points, with win at equally-awful Cleveland. 49ers allowed average of 12.3 ppg in last seven games, giving up only 8 TDs on last 77 drives; they’re 5-0 as home favorites, winning at Candlestick by 16-45-10-7-16 points. Rams haven’t averaged six yards per pass attempt since Week 5 at Lambeau, when they were getting crushed right off bat. Under is 6-2 in last eight St Louis games, 5-1 in last six 49er games.

Thursday's six-pack

-- Big Dozen won the Big Dozen-ACC Challenge for the third year in a row. They're the best league in the country from top to bottom.

-- UNLV survived a trap game after beating North Carolina; Rebels won in double OT at a good UCSB team, 94-88.

-- Creighton was down 17 early, rallied to win 85-83 at San Diego State, which plays a close game just about every time out.

-- Rhode Island is 1-6 after losing at Brown. Yikes.

-- Denver won by 13 at Utah State; Aggies don't lose very many home games. Pioneers play like Princeton, have an experienced team.

-- Teams that won the two Disney tournaments and the Atlantis event last weekend all lost their next game this week. Go figure.

Thursday's Dirty Dozen: Things I'm looking for in December......

12) At some point, the baseball free agents will start signing with new teams, with Pujols-Fielder-Reyes the three most interesting cases.

11) Who is running the Red Sox? The new kid GM didn’t seem to want Bobby Valentine as manager, but that’s who the Sox hired, so how much clout does the new GM really have? Are Red Sox owners placating their fanbase by hiring a manager the players don't want?

10) Who will ESPN name to replace Valentine in the Sunday night TV booth? Bobby V and Orel Hershiser were a huge improvement as analysts over Joe Morgan, the previous Sunday night analyst. As long as they don’t bring Morgan back and don’t promote Rick Sutcliffe, it’ll be OK.

9) Which NFL teams go in the tank, and which will show spunk and make the playoffs? Remember, the Packers were the #6 seed in the NFC LY and won the Super Bowl, so getting in tournament is still the main thing.

8) Speaking of Green Bay, if they beat the Giants this week, will their being unbeaten become a burden?

7) On the other end of the spectrum, can Dan Orlovsky lead the Colts to an 0-16 finish? He had a hand in Detroit’s 0-16 season in 2008, and we know there’s no substitute for experience.

6) Am curious to follow Duke’s progress as they had towards ACC play, after they got spanked at Ohio State Tuesday; they’re not real strong in the backcourt, which will be their undoing in March.

5) Hopefully Steve Lavin will regain his strength and be able to return to the St John’s bench soon. We enjoyed his seven years of work on ESPN and miss hearing him on TV. Get well soon.

4) What will the quality of play be like when the NBA starts up again? What will the schedule look like? Will the league be smart enough to reduce the price of the DirecTV package?

3) Spooky Express Bowl selections. Have not had a losing record in bowl season since 1977 and yes I was knee high to a grasshopper back then. Certainly had a few years mixed in that were around .500 but its always fun when we go bowling for dollars.

2) College football coaching changes have to be done fairly quickly, so that staffs are in place for recruiting season; put a staff in place too late, and that staff loses a full year in the recruiting cycle, so it’ll be very interesting to see how some of these schools fill their coaching vacancies.

1) I enjoy watching the bowl games and seeing different matchups, but it would be lot more fun if there were a playoff. You know, like there is in basketball, and in I-AA, D-II and D-III football. And in just about every other sport. Even squash.

Posted my play for tonight in College Football forum but the NFL is just plain old shit tonight. Unsure of the game although I lean
towards the underdog and the under. So gonna focus on college football as we get ready for bowl season.

Good Luck!

Sunday's Lit of 13: Wrapping up a college sports Saturday........

13) Has a team ever scored 42 points in a game without picking up a first down in the first half? LSU gets more production out of defense/special teams than any football team since the 1985 Bears.

12) North Carolina made 11 of 18 shots behind arc and still lost by one at Kentucky, in a game that seemed a lot more like March than December.

11) When was the last time Oklahoma/Texas both lost conference games by 20+ points on the same day? Oklahoma State beat the Sooners for the first time in nine years. Baylor beat Longhorns for second straight year.

10) Big East won 8-4 in the Big East-SEC Challenge, with Georgetown's win at Alabama Thursday the best game of the 12. Going to be a long year in Knoxville, if Pitt won there without injured point guard Woodall.

9) Tough day for Conference USA and the Houston Cougars, as Southern Mississippi won the C-USA title game 49-28, costing the league its first BCS bowl slot and an estimated $11M payday. Rough way for the great career of Houston QB Case Keenum to come to an end.

8) Purdue led by 19 at Xavier with under 11:00 left but lost by 3, a great win for the Musketeers, who will be challenged by Saint Louis for the top spot in the Atlantic 14. Purdue's oft-injured Robbie Hummel had trouble with his legs again, this time with severe cramping. Sad thing to see.

7) Wild ending to Wisconsin's 42-39 win over Michigan State in the first Big Dozen title game; Spartans ran a Wisconsin punt back to the 5-yard line in the last 2:00, but Michigan State just barely ran into the punter, giving the Badgers a game-ending first down. If Michigan State gained 471 yards on Wisconsin, what is Oregon's offense going to do to them when they meet in the Rose Bowl?

6) Speaking of the Badgers, rough week on the hardwood, as they lost by 7 at home to Marquette after losing by 3 in Chapel Hill during the week. Its still beneficial to play games like that, just better, obviously, to win them.

5) Utah State (7-5) and Wyoming (8-4) are teams we haven't seen a lot of that will be going bowling. Good for them.

4) Going to be a rough year for Georgia Tech, who lost 57-52 at Tulane, a game you cannot lose if you have any hope of being a good ACC team. Green Wave has gotten better, but not that much better.

3) Wow. Didn't think Clemson had it in them to spank Virginia Tech again but they did 38-10, making the total score in their two meetings this year a convincing 61-13. Tigers will go to Orange Bowl for first time since 1981, when they beat Nebraska 22-15, and won the national championship.

2) Detroit Titans are 1-6 vs D-I opponents after losing to Cleveland State at home Saturday; they're playing St John's Monday night and are naming their court after Dick Vitale, who coached the Titans for a few years, but is being honored for his great contributions to college basketball over the last 30 years. He really has been a great ambassador for the sport, and has also helped raise over $100M for cancer research through the V Foundation.

1) So tomorrow night the bowl matchups will be set; 35 games stretching from December 17 until early January. Think about it; 70 of the 120 D-I teams go to a bowl and one of the best teams (USC) is on probation and can't go to one. Every coach who misses a bowl is on the hot seat for next season. A few coaches who make bowls have already been or will be fired.

Get ready for Spooky's Bowling for Dollars Express here at BangtheBook!!!
