Doug’s NFL picks Week 5

Week 4 9-6

Season Standings 40-23

Thursday Night

Bills 2-2 at Browns 2-2

Sunday Games 1:00

The winner will be 3-2, which in today’s NFL means they will be in the Playoff hunt. The Bills are fresh off a thumping of the Ravens, and the Browns have won two straight after trading Trent Richardson and benching Brandon Weeden. Make it three in a row tonight

Pats 4-0 at Bengals 2-2

The Pats just keep winning, the Bengals just keep finding ways to set NFL unis back twenty years. Pats win

Lions 3-1 at Pack 1-2

This might be the year the Lions finally break out, but not this week, Packers win

Ravens 2-2 at Dolphins 3-1 The Dolphins got whacked Monday night in New Orleans, but that happens a lot on that city, this week the Ravens get mugged in Miami

Seahawks 4-0 at Colts 3-1

Best game of the week? It could well be. A Superbowl preview? how the Hell would I know I am only 17-14 in the last two weeks. But, Colts win a close one

Saints 4-0 at Bears 3-1

The Saints hope to go undefeated, the Bears will crush that hope

Eagles 1-3 at NY Giants 0-4

The Eagles looked great in the first half of the first game, but since then their new fast offense has averaged a loss every 18 seconds. Giants win

Chiefs 4-0 at Titans 3-1

Andy Reid is on track for coach of the year, and the Chiefs win a close contest. Is it too much to ask the Titans to bust out their old Oiler unis this week? 

Jags 0-4 at Rams 1-3

The Rams are bad, but the Jags are uglier than their helmets. Rams win

Sunday Games 4:00

Panthers 1-3 at Cards 2-2

Can I be honest here? No one will watch this game, no one cares, but Panthers will win any way

Broncos 4-0 at Cowboys 2-2

The Cowboys are on their win one, lose one formula headed to another 8-8 year. Peyton Manning is on a different level. 

Sunday Night

Texans 2-2 at Niners 2-2

Two teams that should have better records. Two teams that REALLY need a win. Hmmm, I will go with the Niners

Chargers 2-2 at Raiders 1-3

The good news for Oakland is that the A’s are in the playoffs. The bad news for Oakland is they get their starting QB back. The worse news for Oakland? That QB is Terrell Pryor. Chargers win

Monday Night

Jets 2-2 at Falcons 1-3

The Jets are 2-2, headed for 3-13, the Falcons are 1-3 headed for 11-5. Falcons roll!

 

Dougs NFL picks Week 4

Week 1 11-5

Week 2 12-4

Week 3 8-8 (UGH)

Season 31-17

Week 4

Time to rebound after an awful week 3

Thursday Night Niners over Rams. Easy pick, and yes, I forgot to do this Thursday before the game, so sue me

Sunday 1:00 games

Ravens 2-1 vs Bills 1-2

No reason the Ravens should lose, but this is the NFL so you just never know. So, take the Ravens, and strippers with champagne bottles

Cards 1-2 at Bucs 0-3. the Bucs should be 2-1, the Cardinals should still be in St. Louis. take the Bucs and their new QB

Steelers 0-3 vs Vikings 0-3. Let’s see two winless teams playing in England. Who wins? Steelers Who loses, fans in the UK

Giants 0-3 at Chiefs 3-0. Are the Giants really 0-3? Are the Chiefs really 3-0? Why the Hell not? Chiefs win

Colts 2-1 at Jags 0-3. Yes the Colts will win, we all know that. The real question is will the Jags ever finish painting their helmets?

Seahawks 3-0 at Texans 2-1. Best game of the day? Possible Superbowl preview? Why do sports reporters always ask those stupid questions? Here are your answers to those burning questions. Yes. No. Because they think they are supposed to. Texans win

Bengals 2-1 at Browns 1-2. The BATTLE of OHIO! No, just an easy Bengal win

Bears 3-0 at Lions 2-1. Are the Lions finally ready to take that next step? At home against the Bears I say yes

4:00 games

Jets 2-1 at Titans 2-1. What is more shocking? The Jets being 2-1 or the Titans being 2-1? Or that some people will actually CHOOSE to watch this game. Titans win

Redskins 0-3 at Raiders 1-2. What a great game this would have been in 1982 or 1983. Oh well, Redskins get off the winless list

Eagles 1-2 at Broncos 3-0. Odd fact #1. Chip Kelly left the Ducks and college football’s most dynamic offense to coach the Eagles who have the footballs most obnoxious fans. Odd fact #2 today Chip Kelly gets to see up close what it is like to get steamrolled by  a great offense. Broncos big!

Cowboys 2-1 at Chargers 1-2. The Cowboys cannot win, or lose more than one game in a row, and the injury bug has descended upon them, so the Chargers win. That is the bad news for Dallas. The worse news is that yet another incredibly awful post-game presser by Jerry Jones awaits after the game.

Sunday Night! Ah Carrie Underwood!

Pats 3-0 at Falcons 1-2. The Pats are lucky to be 3-0, and the Falcons are unlucky to be 1-2. Look for Atlanta to bury the Pats

Monday Night. Dolphins 3-0 at Saints 3-0. Are the Dolphins for real? Maybe. Are the Saints going to be 4-0? Yes!

Ravens stun Broncos, Niners level Pack to win spots in conference championships

Baltimore gets tie Broncos in final 30 seconds, win in double OT

Welcome to NFL immortality, Joe Flacco.

Somewhere up there in the all-time playoff archives near the “Hail Mary” by Roger Staubach and the “Immaculate Reception” by Franco Harris now lives the “Flacco Fling” by theBaltimore Ravens quarterback.

One big throw down the sideline, 70 make-or-break yards on a wing and a prayer — a high, arcing touchdown pass that soared through the icy air, flew over two defenders, landed in the hands of Jacoby Jones, saved the game for Baltimore and kept Ray Lewis‘ 17-year career going at least one more week.

The record will show Justin Tucker kicked a 47-yard field goal 1:42 into the second overtime Saturday to give the Ravens a 38-35 victory overPeyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. The highlight? That would be Flacco’s game-tying touchdown to Jones on third-and-3 from the 30 with 31 seconds left in regulation and no timeouts.

“At that point,” Flacco said, “you have to start taking shots. You have to get a little lucky.”

Kaepernick runs wild, Green Bay hardest hit

The unproven kid thoroughly beat the former Super Bowl champion and reigning MVP.

With a strong arm that allowed him to pick the Packers apart from the pocket and speedy legs that helped him break free for big gains, Colin Kaepernick did a little bit of everything in a record-setting, sensational playoff debut — and Aaron Rodgers just couldn’t keep up.

Kaepernick passed for 263 yards and ran theSan Francisco 49ers right back to the NFC Championship Game with a 45-31 win over Green Bay in an NFC divisional game Saturday night.

Kaepernick rushed for a quarterback-record 181 yards and two touchdowns and threw two scoring passes to Michael Crabtree. Next up for the Niners: a game on Jan. 20 for a spot in the Super Bowl, against the winner of Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Falcons at Atlanta.

 

NFL Playoff picks for Divisional Round

Only eight teams are left standing, and after Sunday, there will be four. So who makes the cut?

The action kicks off later today with the Broncos hosting the Ravens in cold Denver. My pick, Denver. Yes Denver might score less than normal, but so will the Ravens, and that spells doom for Baltimore.

Game of the weekend? The Niners hosting the Pack. Such a tough call here. I have been going back and forth on this one. But, I am sticking with my original pick, the Niners, although I will be rooting against them.

Sunday sees the Falcons host the Seahwaks. Another very tough choice. I can see it go either way, but Seattle is hot right now, and the Falcons have yet to prove they can win in the post season.

Lastly, the Pats will destroy the Texans. I wish it was going to be different, but I do not see it.

Ravens roll Colts, Seahawaks shut down Skins

The Colts ran up over 400 yards of offense, but could only mange three field goals in Baltimore. The Ravens now head to Denver to play the Broncos

 

The Baltimore Ravens want one long final ride for Ray Lewis. Having disposed of Andrew Luck and the Colts, they now face a more imposing challenge.

Next up, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Anquan Boldin set a franchise record with 145 yards receiving, including the clinching touchdown in the Ravens’ 24-9 victory Sunday over Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game. The win delays star linebacker Lewis’ retirement for at least another week as Baltimore (11-6) heads to top-seeded Denver (13-3) next Saturday.

Can the Ravens D stand up against Peyton’s offense?

Seahawks too much for Skins, ailing RG3

The Seattle Seahawks finally won a road playoff game Sunday, taking a 24-14 NFC wild-card victory over the Washington Redskins, who lost Robert Griffin III to another knee injury in the fourth quarter.

Marshawn Lynch ran for 131 yards, and Russell Wilson completed 15 of 26 passes for 187 yards and ran eight times for 67 yards for the Seahawks, who broke an eight-game postseason losing streak away from home.

Seattle will visit the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.

Lynch’s 27-yard run with 7:08 remaining gave the Seahawks (12-5) the lead. On Washington’s next series, Griffin reinjured the right knee he sprained about a month ago while trying to field a bad shotgun snap.

The knee buckled badly, and the Seahawks recovered the fumble and kicked an insurance field goal

Can the Atlanta Falcons stop red hot Seattle next week?

Oh yes, the NFL Playoffs DO start today

And here are my picks for the opening weekend

The slumping Texans will edge the Bengals in a close game. 

The Pack will nip the Vikings

The Colts will go back to Baltimore and defeat the Ravens in Ray Lewis’s last game. And that means we NEVER have to watch that moronic pre-game dance Lewis does! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Finally, the Seahawks go to DC and knock off the Skins

NFL reaches agreement with refs

 

Via the Blaze

The NFL and National Football League Referees Association, have finally reached an agreement, which probably means the end of lingerie-league rejects making boneheaded calls in stadium end zones.

Around midnight Thursday morning, after days of long and heated negotiations, word reached reporters that NFL-trained referees will be back on the field in time for Thursday night’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns.

Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL agreed to hike referees’ annual compensation from $149,000 to $173,000. The new package will also reportedly include better benefits and 401(k) plans.

Great! Now highly paid professionals can screw up calls like only highly trained professionals can!

 

Kicker Loses AFC Championship Game For Ravens, Wins Title Of Most Hated Man In Baltimore

Patriots Edge Ravens To Reach Seventh Super Bowl – AFP

New England quarterback Tom Brady scored on a 1-yard run with 11:29 to play on Sunday to give the Patriots a 23-20 NFL playoff victory over Baltimore and their seventh trip to the Super Bowl.

The outcome was not decided until Baltimore kicker Billy Cundiff missed wide of the left upright on an attempt at an equalizing 32-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining.

……………

Brady, who will match John Elway with a record five career Super Bowl starts, improved to 10-2 in home playoff games and 5-1 in American Conference finals over his 11 seasons as a starter for New England.

The Patriots will face the winner of Sunday’s later National Conference final between the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants in Super Bowl 46 on February 5 at Indianapolis, Indiana.

New England has won the Super Bowl three times, all under Brady’s direction, in 2002, 2004 and 2005. The Patriots lost the championship spectacle in 1986, 1997 and 2008, when their bid for a perfect season was spoiled by the Giants.

Brady dived over his blockers on a fourth-down play inches from the goal line for a touchdown that gave the Patriots a 23-20 lead with 11:29 remaining, capping an 11-play, 63-yard drive.

New England’s Brandon Spikes intercepted a Joe Flacco pass on Baltimore’s next drive to give the Patriots the ball at midfield, only to have Jimmy Smith intercept a Brady pass on the next play to give the ball back to the Ravens.

Baltimore coach John Harbaugh chose not to have Cundiff attempt a 51-yard field goal, having seen him make only 1-of-6 from beyond 50 yards all season. But Flacco was incomplete on a fourth-down-and-six-yard pass play.

The Patriots took over with 2:45 remaining, but could not run out the clock, setting the stage for Baltimore’s final drive, which ended in heartbreak on two Flacco incompletions and Cundiff’s miss.

Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 35-yard field goal with 3:00 to play in the second quarter to give New England a 13-10 half-time lead and added another from 24 yards six minutes into the third quarter.

The Ravens responded with a 29-yard touchdown pass to Smith, taking their first lead at 17-16 with 5:49 to play in the third.

Smith caught the pass at the line of scrimmage, evaded one defender and outraced another along the sideline to the front edge of the end zone.

Baltimore got the ball back after the ensuing kickoff when New England’s Danny Woodhead fumbled and the Ravens’ Emanuel Cook recovered, setting up a 39-yard Cundiff field goal for a 20-16 edge entering the fourth quarter.

Benjarvus Green-Ellis had scored on an 7-yard run only 4:25 into the second quarter to give New England a 10-3 lead. Green-Ellis ran for 36 yards on the Patriots’ 13-play touchdown drive.

Baltimore answered just 4:32 later, pulling level at 10-10 when Flacco completed his seventh consecutive pass, a 6-yard touchdown toss to Dennis Pitta, to complete an 8-play, 80-yard drive.

The Ravens’ first penalty in 180 plays wiped out an interception on New England’s first drive across midfield, a 13-play march that ended on a 29-yard Gostkowski field goal for a 3-0 Patriots lead with only 9:11 elapsed.

Baltimore’s Lardarius Webb picked off Brady on the next New England series and Flacco followed with a 42-yard pass to Smith that set up a 20-yard Cundiff field goal two plays into the second quarter.
