Green Bay’s pass defense, shaky and beset by injuries, might not have an easy time against Dallas QB Dak Prescott, a preternaturally poised rookie who threw for three TDs in the October matchup. The No. 1 seeded Cowboys’ other first year sensation, Ezekiel Elliott, gained 157 yards in his first game against the NFL’s eighth best run defense.
But, the Dolphins offense is woeful. Last week, against a Titans team that was flamethrowered (yes I know I made that word up) by Texans rookie QB Deshaun Watson, Jay Cutler managed the following line: 12/26 92 yards 1 TD 1 INT. I don trust this Miami offense at all as they shown no signs of improvement over four full games..
Extra bottle caps lying around? Need a quick way to display ’em? Just need a few more fridge magnets? A quick, cheap, and simple way to turn your extra bottle caps into simple yet cool fridge magnets. You could go crazy with materials, but I can’t personally justify spending tons of money on extra bottle caps. Total cost, if you factor in the glue used, comes to around 15 cents per magnet.
Based on 10,000 simulated seasons using Football Outsiders’ early season projected win totals, the Week 15 matchup on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers is the most likely loss for the Patriots (48.2 percent chance). The road game against the Broncos in Week 10 is the next toughest for New England; Denver has a 44 percent chance of winning that contest. After that, the odds tilt heavily in the Patriots’ favor..
Then again, the Steelers simply could try to outscore the Patriots. Given Carson Wentz’s season ending injury, lackluster performances from Brady and Russell Wilson, and Antonio Brown’s 200 yards receiving this weekend, Brown may have nudged his way into the MVP conversion. A wide receiver has never claimed the award, but with a big game in a victory, Brown will thrust himself into the forefront..
Pro Bowl defensive end Cliff Avril has a neck issue that is serious enough that his career is in doubt; he been contemplating neck surgery. Special teams mainstay Dewey McDonald underwent surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament in late September, so he going to remain out. Fullback Tre Madden (calf) and offensive lineman Rees Odhiambo (surgery on multiple fingers) could be candidates to return, but are less important to the here and now for this team than are Carson and Prosise..
Yet another All American candidate to crack this list, JuJu Smith Schuster represents a stellar combination of speed and size. Although the USC offense has taken a step back from last season, Smith Schuster is still capable of producing at a high level. He averaged 16.3 yards per catch and hauled in 10 touchdown passes as a sophomore, but is still seeking his first 100 yard game in 2016 after producing eight in his career thus far.
