NFL Week 8 Predictions

 

nfl-shield2

Its week 8 of the 2016 NFL season and the league shaping up really nicely for the Patriots and I am enjoying it. I got Thursday night footballs prediction right, I picked the Titans and they delivered. Here are my predictions for Week 8.

Jacksonville at Tennessee: I picked the Titans for this game

Washington at Cincinnati: This is a difficult game to pick. I think Washington has the right offence to go against the Bengals. Both teams are more like an 8 – 8 teams and it could go anywhere I pick the Redskins even-though it seems unlikely I think they might get this game

N.Y. Jets at Cleveland: I wish the Browns could win the game. I kind want them to win since they seem more of the underdog. The Jets should win but I pick the Browns.

Seattle at New Orleans: The saints will score enough points to stay ahead of the Seahawks. I pick the Saints

Arizona at Carolina: These two teams were expected to be high performers but they seem to be struggling. The panthers have only one good player in Cam Newton. Unfortunately he wouldn’t be enough to win at Arizona. I pick the Cardinals.

New England at Buffalo: I dont pick against the Patriots as a rule. The earlier meeting at the Gillette stadium was a disaster for the Patriots. With the Bills having some injuries in their offence I think the Patriots are going to be unforgiving especially the defense that was humiliated with that 16-0 shutout. I believe Tom Brady will have a great game against the Bills.

Oakland at Tampa Bay: The Raiders have a bad defense but their offence will be good enough to win against the Bucs. I pick the Raiders.

Kansas City at Indianapolis: The Colts stink and I dont believe they will win against the Chiefs. I pick the Chiefs.

Detroit at Houston: Matthew Stafford is playing like the best QB in the NFL. This week he has Ebron, Riddick in offence so even more weapons to throw to. They have Ezekiel Ansah and Hyder in defense and I think they are built to beat the Texans who are struggling to find themselves. The lions are my second favorite team this season and I pick them to win.

San Diego at Denver:  I said it before that I dont believe in the “superior” Denver defense. I dont think they are a great team and against a superior offence they will get scorched. The Chargers will win at Denver. Also the Chargers have a good defense and will easily deal with Trevor Simeon. I pick the Chargers.

Green Bay at Atlanta: The Packers have been exposed and Julio Jones is too good for Greenbay to handle. I dont see how the Packers will get a win. I expect the Falcons to win so I pick them.

Philadelphia at Dallas: Jerry world will see another victory this week. I have said this before, Dak Prescott is special. Together with Ezekiel Elliot, I expect Dallas to win. Also Dez Bryant will be available that offence will be hard to stop. Carson Wentz is good but Dak has the winning mentality to stay with the game till they win.

Minnesota at Chicago: The Vikings are going to the playoffs and the Bears are not going to take a game from them. This should be an easy win for the Vikings. I pick the Vikings to win.

Weekly Recap

There isn’t much to recap for this week. I was not well for most of the weeks and as results some of my posts came in late. But one constant theme was music and that never changes whether I am sick or not.

Music

I have been jamming to this tune the whole week hope you enjoy it too.

 

That’s it for this weeks recap. Short and sweet hope to feel better and blog even more next week. Hope you have a good weekend and enjoy some football. I will be looking forward to the Patriots vs  Bills revenge game.

Thursday Night Football Week 8: Jaguars @ Titans

jaquarstitans

          Its Thursday night and that means we have some football! So here is my pick for the game between the Jaguars and the Titans.

I think the Jaguars are a team that have a lot of maturing to do. They are too week and against a team like the Titans who are not doing well themselves, I expect them to fold. The Titans have good players and are capable of turning the heat at a any moment to get a win. I think the Titans smell a chance to get a much needed win and will take this game. I pick the Titans.

Weekly Recap

Hey there another week and another weekly recap. Lets get into it.

Space

Orbital Sciences Successfully launched its Cygnus Cargo ship to the ISS on its Antares Rocket. This is their first resupply mission on their own rocket since that unfortunate disaster last year when they lost their cargo ship and the rocket.

The Expedition 49-50 crew successfully launched and docked with the ISS. I mudt be honest that I missed this launch. Partly because an earlier launch was canceled due to an issue with the Soyuz space ship, as a result I lost track of the launch and I not much information was put out there before the launch.

And finally the ESA(European Space Agency) had some success and a some problems with its Exo-Mars mission. The mission consists of an orbiter and a lander. The orbiting module was successfully put into orbit around mars but the lander had some issues. I will talk more about this in another post.

Sports

After beating the Bengals the patriots will meet the Steelers on the road this Sunday. At the beginning of the season I thought with fixture will be tough but with the steelers not playing too well and with Ben Rothlesberger having an injury this is a match-up that I am keenly looking forward to. I will be publishing my predictions tomorrow so watch out for that.

Music

I am not sure if you have heard of Ta-Ku . But I have really fallen in love with one of his tracks. This is a remix of Estelle’s American Boy and he calls it American Girl. Trust me you will love this Jam. Also I am going to be creating a sound cloud account where I will be promoting the music that I love I think I need a platform where I can share and promote music that I enjoy.

 

Politics

Now this video I am going to share has nothing to do with my political views but I had a good laugh watching Donald Trump doing something that only he could do. If you watched the debate you will know that he refused the accept  the outcome of the elections before the elections had taken place. That drew a lot of offense with people saying that he lost the race by not going along with what had become tradition in the American presidential race. But his statement at a rally soon after is priceless.

So that it for the weekend recap. Hope you enjoy your weekend 🙂

 

NFL Week 7 Predictions: Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers

    Its Thursday night football again and Green Bay are in the spotlight again. This time gains the Bears. I will like to pick against the Packers with the injuries to Eddie Lacy and a luck of a running game to help Aaron Rodgers who is increasingly getting inaccurate with his throws. But I think after getting beaten at home I don’t think Aaron Rodgers will repeat his mistakes. The loss to the Cowboys was mainly his fault. I will pick the Packers against the Bears who have a greater potential to stink up a game. I pick the Green Bay Packers.

NFL Week 6 Prediction Recap

Week six is over and WOW what a week in the NFL. I was happy because the Patriots beat the Bengals. I hope Vontaze Burfict enjoyed the taste of defeat in his mouth(that guy lacks self control). I cant say too much about the other games that were played but I will be watching some games during the week. Top on my list is the Cowboys vs Green Bay Packers game. Like I correctly predicted Dak Prescott is turning out to be a great QB and there is no way I was picking the Packers against Dak and Ezekiel Elliot with that Dallas O-Line. The next will be the Bengals vs Patriots game and then the Rams vs Lions game. You might ask why watch the lions game whiles the Falcons vs Seahawks game is available. Well i king of like the Lions so I watch their games when I get the time.

So How did I do on my Predictions. Well I have my predictions below and I have highlighted my wrong predictions red and those that I had right in Green.

In total I got 7 predictions right which rounds up to 46.7% . That was a bad set of predictions.  Hopefully I get my predications better in week 7. Hope you have better luck with your predictions.

 

Denver at San Diego : With the kind of performance the Chargers are showing I will have to go with the Broncos. The Chargers don’t seem like they have a spine. Joey Bosa will make some great plays but the Chargers lack the ability to take advantage of situations. Denver will take any chance you give them. Chargers will start strong but I doubt they can finish well. I pick Denver Broncos.

L.A. Rams at Detroit Lions :  Although Matthew Stafford is not consistent I think he will play well in this home game. The lions might have Ezekiel Ansah back to boost their defense with Kerry Hyder. I think the Lions can take whatever the Rams bring. I pick Detroit Lions.

San Francisco at Buffalo :  Chip Kelly’s offence is no good when their best quarterback is still on the bench. It seems that decision was more of a legal one done Chip Kelly’s doing. If they start Colin Kaepernick they might have a chance against Rex Ryans defense which proved that it can handle any team when they played the Patriots. I think Buffalo Bills win this one.

Jacksonville at Chicago: This is a difficult one. The Bears stink and the Jaguars stink. I think home advantage might be enough to get Chicago the win . I pick the Chicago Bears.

Cleveland at Tennessee:  Cleveland don’t have a quarterback. That’s all I can say about that the Browns. The Titans seem to be finding their feet and are looking better as a team. if Marcus Mariota can avoid any interceptions and turnover’s in general they can close this one. The Browns are not to be taken lightly they could cause an upset if the Titans don’t close this early. I pick the Titan.

Philadelphia at Washington :  I will base this on the strength of the QB position. Carson Wentz will certainly outperform Kirk Cousins. I think the Eagles defense is solid. Kirk Cousins is not really reliable and will certainly throw  some interceptions (I am predicting 2) and Carson Wentz will have a great game. I will pick the Philadelphia Eagles.

Baltimore at N.Y. Giants : I expect the Ravens to dominate but we all know the Giants will win when you don’t expect it. Although Eli Manning has been really bad this year I expect him to have a great game. with wide receivers like Odell and Sterling, I think they will win but it will be a close game.  I pick the Giants.

Carolina at New Orleans: The Saints are back from a bye week and the panthers are sinking fast. If Cam Newton is still out then certainly the Saints will have a win. Drew Brees can get the Job done. I pick the Panthers to have an edge with Cam Newton.

Pittsburgh at Miami :  Miami are such a bad team I don’t see how they win this game. The Steelers win.

Cincinnati at New England : I don’t pick against the Patriots. Tom Brady will show how good he is with a win at Home. His first home game after the suspension. I expect the Patriots to win.

Kansas City at Oakland : I wont lie about this one. I like what is going on in Oakland. I Pick the Raiders.

Atlanta at Seattle: This will be a great game to watch. Seattle is good but Atlanta are having a good season with that electrifying offense. If Mat Ryan keeps up the good work I dont see Atlanta loosing. The most people though the Broncos will halt the falcons but it was a mismatch. I pick the Falcons to repeat the same success against the Seahawks. I pick the Falcons.

Dallas at Green Bay :  Green Bay are suck a good team it will be inconseavable to choose another team. But Dak Prescott is special. Together with Ezekiel Elliot I expect these two to cause a heavy upset. The Packer give away very few points to the running game but I still think Dak Prescott is special. I don’t think we have seen the best of this kid and if the test gets tougher I expect him to do something really special with the ball. I pick Dallas.

Indianapolis at Houston : Hmmm, Andrew Luck or Brock Osweiler. I think we all know the answer. The Colt win. Even though they are not  a good team with a terrible O-line they are good enough to win against the Texans. I pick the Indianapolis Colts.

N.Y. Jets at Arizona : I predict another Terrible game for Fitz Patrick. The honey badger will have a pick six. Also I don’t think the Jets have a good answer for Arizonas running game. David Johnson will have another monster game. I pick the Cardinals.
