• Week 13 Runnin' and Gunnin': Pick the High Score of the Week



    The Rams put 42 on the Bears to earn last week’s High Score honors. Not surprisingly, nobody picked them. I mean, Kellen Clemens, you know? Interestingly, the Rams also won Week 6.

    Lots of us loved the Saints. You have to wonder if the Thursday night “crappy game jinx” didn’t strike them down. Fate (or whoever the heck runs the universe) is laughing at us, because of course we have three Thursday games this week. I hereby vow to not touch them. Also, after Sunday’s debacle, I ain’t going near the Lions.

    Perusing the schedule, you have to say that the Monday night tilt in Seattle looks promising. The only other team which appeals to me is New England. But in anticipation of a shootout and a home victory, I’m picking the Seahawks.


    Packers @ Lions – 12:30 p.m.
    Raiders @ Cowboys – 4:30 p.m.
    Steelers @ Ravens -- 8 p.m.
    Broncos @ Chiefs -- 1 p.m.
    Titans @ Colts -- 1 p.m.
    Jaguars @ Browns -- 1 p.m.
    Buccaneers @ Panthers -- 1 p.m.
    Bears @ Vikings – 1 p.m.
    Cardinals @ Eagles – 1 p.m.
    Dolphins @ Jets – 1 p.m.
    Falcons @ Bills -- 4:05 p.m.
    Rams @ 49ers – 4:05 p.m.
    Patriots @ Texans – 4:25 p.m.
    Bengals @ Chargers – 4:25 p.m.
    Giants @ Redskins -- 8:30 p.m.
    Saints @ Seahawks -- 8:40 p.m.

      The Bears. The Viqqueens cant stop the pass, the Bears will allow Petersen to rack up 300 yds.

      Patriots. 34 in the cold = 45 in Houston, or some sort of bad logic like that.

      This feels like another week of weirdness.

      Gimme the Bills. Atlanta is mathematically eliminated from playoff contention and it feels like its time for a full on implosion. Getting housed in Orchard Park is a good way to get that train rolling.

      Think that Washington is going to implode.

      I was really on the fence last night and I still am. I'm dithering on Denver. KC's pass rush may be neutered and if they give Manning as much time as they gave Rivers, it could be a nice bounce-back game for the Broncos.

      Tony Romo has a 105 rating, over 1800 yards passing, and 17 TD passes in 6 Thanksgiving Day games.

      This year's opponent? The Raiders.

      Gimme the Cowboys

      Four of y'all picked Dallas. If you figure that 40+ is the minimum needed to set the high score, the Pokes were flirting with it going into the 4th quarter. They got the ball early in the quarter. If they'd scored a TD, that would have put them at 34 with maybe 10 minutes left to get the ball and score again. But they couldn't score and that sort of doomed them.
