This time of year even the coaches are banged up

Patriots LB coach Pepper Johnson underwent surgery this week for torn quad muscle that will leave him on crutches for today’s game vs Colts.

NFL SUNDAY SIX PACK

1. Lions +3.5

The Saints defense is awful read previous post--and the Raiders do great after a blowout loss (18-8-1 ATS)

let's go throwback on the Raiders---

New York is averaging fewer than 200 passing yards and has been held to 10 points or fewer in four of its six losses. Mark Sanchez has thrown nearly as many interceptions (nine) as touchdowns (10) and went just 9-of-22 for 124 yards and a pick in the 28-7 loss at Seattle last week. Steven Jackson, who rushed over 100 yards last week in San Francisco, could have a big day against a New York defense that ranks 30th against the run. These teams have played over the total in four of their last five meetings.

NFL (MIS)Matchup

More support for my Raiders play

Dennis Allen’s familiarity vs. Joe Vitt’s inexperience

Raiders head coach Dennis Allen knows a little something about the Saints, serving as the team’s defensive backs coach from 2008 to 2010, including the Super Bowl run in 2009, under now-suspended Sean Payton. New Orleans had nothing but great things to say about Allen this week, tabbing the Oakland coach as a “sharp individual”.

If Allen is as sharp as they say – and he is – expect him to use all his inside info about the Saints’ schemes to help his team. Vitt, New Orleans interim head coach, has his squad on a roll after handing Atlanta its first loss of the year last weekend. However, Vitt isn’t reinventing the wheel in New Orleans and is likely using similar signs and calls when it comes to Peyton’s game plans. Expect Allen to pick up on a few familiar things before this one is over.
