By The Numbers: Week 1, 2016


The offseason always proves to go by quicker than expected. By the beginning of summer it feels like Football will never be back. Then, suddenly it’s September and the first games are airing. I’m a little behind on this post because as you know I’ve been a little bit of a slacker when it comes to posting but as I said, I’m trying to get back into the habit. I spent all of yesterday at the L.A. County Fair, so when I woke up to catch my beloved Green Bay Packers face off against the Jacksonville Jaguars I realized this was a thing I’ve been doing for a few years now.

I’ve missed my prediction for the Thursday night game, but I haven’t looked at scores for any of the games that are currently playing, so I’m gonna try and push this out prior to looking at them. Predictions are whatever, I do okay, but I would have been wrong in the case of that first game, where I would have picked the Panthers to win since the Broncos no longer have Peyton Manning under center. That proved to be the wrong choice, as the defending champs took the win. Supposedly there were some dirty hits on Cam Newton, but that’s football. During the preseason there were some notable stories that I’m sure you’ve already heard about, but I’ll touch on them briefly. Big surprise, Tony Romo is injured again. I don’t know how he’s remained the starter in Dallas for so long, as he’s been so fragile. Sure, QBs get injured, but this guy is out almost every season. Not so surprising, Colin Krappernick is being trash once again, sitting on the bench for the 49ers and forgetting how to stand during the National Anthem. This guy is a piece of work and there have been so many different positions on the story that I won’t get into them all. What I know is that I think bringing attention to other political issues is a great idea, but there’s a time and place and this piece of shit needs to realize that he’s privileged, and isn’t someone who struggles with oppression whatsoever. You get millions to sit on a bench. You can stand once a game. Anyway, on with my picks for week 1:

Packers 21, Jaguars 7
Falcons 27, Buccs 14
Texans 20, Bears 10
Saints 17, Raiders 13
Bengals 24, Jets 14
Eagles 21, Browns 3
Titans 17, Vikings 10
Seahawks 24, Dolphins 14
Giants 28, Cowboys 10
Colts 31, Lions 20
Cardinals 27, Patriots 24
Steelers 20, Redskins 17
Rams 30, 49ers 13

One thought on “By The Numbers: Week 1, 2016

  1. Despite Pittsburgh having a good monday night record. I look forward to the Redskins giving them a beating. I may live an hour south of the Steel City, but I don’t support the Steelers, Now Pens and Pirates yes,but not the Steelers. As for the twerp that decided to kneel for the national anthem. I don’t even go there.
