This week was all about streak breaking. The competition for wildcard slots is really picking up. Some teams have firm entrenched identities and others seem to change week to week. Are you happy with how your team is performing?
The Dallas Cowboys have asserted themselves as the team to beat in the NFC East after their defense was able to ground the high flying New Orleans Saints offense. The Philadelphia Eagles are right on their tail, though after rocking the Redskins on Monday Night Football. The two play each other in Week 14 and if the Eagles hope to have any hopes of retaking command in the division, they will have to win that game.
The West Coast has a few teams that are impressing and I don’t mean only in Los Angeles. The Rams and Chargers are both running through their schedules with relative ease but the Seattle Seahawks have really turned it on in recent weeks culminating with a dominating performance this week vs the San Francisco 49ers. The sad fact of the matter is that regardless of how well they play from here on out, they are likely relegated to a wild card spot as they share a division with the powerful LA Rams. Seattle could win another division outright but are unlucky enough to be paired with another power in a clear example of why divisional seperations should not be used to determine playoff participants.
I sound like a broken record but, once again, my best bets failed to break .500. My only saving grace is that due to starting the year off so strong, I am still sitting at 54.5%. I have got to turn this around soon or I won’t be profitable for much longer. Be prepared for next week’s picks soon. Until then, good luck!
