Game of the Week:

Mike: NO at MIN

Game of the week has to be the Sunday Night Game between the Saints and Vikings. This is also the rematch of the divisional round of the playoffs last year when Minnesota won on a lucky Hail Mary type play. This also has big implications on the playoffs this year. The Saints are probably the second best team in the NFC right now, and Minnesota has righted the ship after a slow start, and they could arguably be the third best team. This will go a long way towards the seeding and tie breaker scenarios for the playoffs. The Saints will want their revenge. I say they get it and basically put them in a position to seperate from the next tier of teams and put them in position to get a first round bye. 

NO 32  MIN 24

Miz: DEN at KC

They met a few weeks ago on Monday night football where a tight game was played. Mahomes and the Chiefs struggled early on but found their rythium late. This time I see a shootout, Mahomes and Keenum will have huge games. 

KC 47  DEN 40

Joe: SF at ARI

This is my sarcastic game of the week. What is more exciting than the backup vs Big Bird? CJ Beathard vs Josh Rosen – there will be a lot of competitions going on: Who can throw more picks, who can lose more yardage via the sack, who can fumble more, and then I guess who can score more and ultimately win the game. If I were ever going to bet on a game finishing in a 0-0 tie….this is the one. But, Alas….I think Beathard should be able to pick apart the atrocity known as the Cardinals defense (and ultimately get our Birds a new CB in Patrick Peterson!). SF 17, ARI 3.

SF 17  ARI 3

Johnny: GB at LAR

Possibly a preview of the NFC playoff as GB travels to LAR. Rodgers will lead the Pack to victory in a high scoring affair 45-38 GB

GB 45  LAR 38
