NFL Week 6 GotW: Carolina @ Tampa Bay (+2)

    We have a revenge game for the Elldee Sports Game of the Week.  Back in Week 2, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went into Charlotte and outmuscled the Carolina Panthers.  That was a different Panther team and Carolina wants to prove it to the nation. Tampa Bay is off to a 2-3 start, alternatingContinue reading “NFL Week 6 GotW: Carolina @ Tampa Bay (+2)”

NFL Week 5 GotW: Arizona @ Cincinnati (-3.5)

     Two winless teams, both looking for a brighter future.  Each of these teams have reason for optimism but success doesn’t come easy in the National Football League.  Arizona has high hopes for rookie sensation Kyler Murray and his playmaking ability while Cincinnati is leaning on the knowledge and prowess of new head coachContinue reading “NFL Week 5 GotW: Arizona @ Cincinnati (-3.5)”

NFL Week 4 GotW: Kansas City @ Detroit (+6)

     We have a wild one on tap for this Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the Detroit Lions.  Heading into Week 4, neither of these teams have tasted defeat but barring a tie, looking at you Detroit, one of these two will lose.  Mahomes vs. Stafford looks to be appointment TV. KansasContinue reading “NFL Week 4 GotW: Kansas City @ Detroit (+6)”

Week 2 NFL GotW: Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans (-3)

    Welcome to Week 2 of the NFL season.  The excitement of a fresh season is beginning to wear off and it is time to get to the nitty-gritty of hard-nosed football!  The Elldee Sports Game of the Week for the NFL is the Indianapolis Colts at the Tennessee Titans.  After the Titans dismantledContinue reading “Week 2 NFL GotW: Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans (-3)”

Green Bay @ Chicago

    It’s finally here…the NFL season kickoff!  The first game is a Thursday night doozy between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears.  Divisional matchups are always hotly contested and this one will be no different as both of these squads have their eyes on the playoffs.  Although it is only Week One,Continue reading “Green Bay @ Chicago”

AFC North: Will the Old Guard Finally Pass the Torch?

    In the AFC North, there is a good combination of Veteran leaders and youthful potential.  The Pittsburgh Steelers are led by Mike Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger, two men who have lifted this rich franchise to the top of the mountain twice.  The Cincinnati Bengals are a proud franchise that has fallen on hardContinue reading “AFC North: Will the Old Guard Finally Pass the Torch?”

AFC West: Is the West Coast the Best Coast?

    The AFC West had an argument last season that they were the best division in the NFL, with the Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs both finishing 12-4.  In fact, the 12-4 records were the two best in all of the AFC.  When you have two teams finish so well, though, thatContinue reading “AFC West: Is the West Coast the Best Coast?”

AFC South: Has Luck Run Out For the Colts?

    Will the AFC South have a repeat of last season?  Only two games separated the first place Houston Texans and the third place Tennessee Titans, with the Indianapolis Colts sandwiched right in the middle.  The Jacksonville Jaguars would also like to force their way into that conversation instead of floundering at the bottomContinue reading “AFC South: Has Luck Run Out For the Colts?”

AFC East: Beast of the Least

    Things are not bright in the AFC East.  This division has the unenviable position of being the worst group in all of the NFL.  The lone bright spot in New England still shines but there’s not much after them.  The Miami Dolphins, NY Jets, and (to a lesser extent) Buffalo Bills are pitiful. Continue reading “AFC East: Beast of the Least”
