By the Numbers: Week 6, 2018

What an atrocious game that was on Sunday. Not only are the refs consistently screwing up calls (that first touchdown came off of a botched call, where it was pretty damn clear that the punt hit a Lion first, not the other way around), but our kicker cost us the game, missing 13 points worth of kicks. Mason Crosby has been pretty damn reliable through the years, but talk about shooting us in the foot on Sunday. It didn’t help either, that twice Rodgers went down and lost the football, but that still didn’t count us out of the game the way the missed kicks did. Whatever the case, at 2-2-1 on the season, we’re not too far gone so I’m not calling for heads or losing hope. I’m just frustrated with the way the first chunk of the season has gone so far. Perhaps getting back some of our better receivers from injury will help. Let’s see how I did with my picks for last week:

Patriots 27, Colts 14 – Correct
Broncos 24, Jets 13
Panthers 30, Giants 17 – Correct
Bengals 20, Dolphins 17 – Correct
Ravens 28, Browns 10
Packers 27, Lions 14
Jaguars 21, Chiefs 20
Titans 23, Bills 7
Falcons 20, Steelers 10
Chargers 26, Raiders 21 – Correct
Eagles 31, Vikings 21
49ers 20, Cardinals 13
Rams 31, Seahawks 17 – Correct
Cowboys 24, Texans 20
Saints 33, Redskins 21 – Correct

Ugh, a terrible week for my picks as well. I went 6-9, which brings me to 43-44 on the season… dropping my score back below .500, sigh. Oh well, the season is still pretty young. Time to make some better picks for next week.

Eagles 24, Giants 14
Jets 21, Colts 13
Bengals 26, Steelers 21
Chargers 27, Browns 21
Bills 20, Texans 10
Bears 21, Dolphins 20
Vikings 28, Cardinals 20
Buccs 24, Falcons 21
Seahawks 30, Raiders 24
Panthers 28, Redskins 17
Rams 21, Broncos 19
Jaguars 23, Cowboys 17
Ravens 24, Titans 14
Chiefs 27, Patriots 26
Packers 27, 49ers 13

I foresee the team getting back on track this week. The 49ers are in disarray due to their QB’s injury and they haven’t really been a force for a couple of years. I’m hoping at this point that the Bears drop a game, though I picked them to win this week, it would just be nice to get back in the lead of the division. Time will tell though, and I’m looking forward to seeing next week’s results!

One thought on “By the Numbers: Week 6, 2018

  1. Our season has been so-so until now. We don’t have one big favourite team, more like a couple of teams that we like more than the others. 🙂

    The Bengals are doing a lot better than I had anticipated. Coming back from 0:17 last week (if I remember correctly) was pretty stellar. They’re 4-1 now and can pull well ahead if they defeat the Steelers this week.

    The Seahawks on the other hand…man, I wouldn’t have thought that it’s possible to actively lose a game by taking a timeout, but Pete Carrol (or whoever called it) managed to do exactly that. Bummer.

    Overall I have to say it’s a pretty interesting and fun to watch season until now. We don’t have enough time to watch all games we’d like to. I’m glad that they dialed back the calls against pass rushers a bit though, that was getting ridiculous.
