St. Louis Rams At Jacksonville Jaguars
Filled with sloppy play and lopsided scores “Thursday Night Football” hasn’t been kind to fans, however it has been kind to the teams, who are 5-1 against the spread the following week. This is a great sign for the Rams. An even better sign for the Rams is that they are going up against one of the worst teams all time in the NFL, the 2013 Jacksonville Jaguars. Much like the Cleveland Indians in the movie “Major League,” this Jaguars team is pitiful. Unfortunately, it’s tough to imagine a naked cardboard cutout of their owner Shahid Khan inspiring this team to greatness.
Seattle Seahawks At Indianapolis Colts
Unlike RGIII, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck are on track to avoid the Sophomore Slump by leading their teams to a combined 7-1. Even more impressive is the Seattle Seahawks are undefeated against the spread — covering every game so far in the 2013 season. The Colts are a solid team especially at home, but this Seahawks team is on another level. When you’re playing so well that opposing teams fans are burning their QBs jerseys, you know you’ve really achieved greatness.
Denver Broncos At Dallas Cowboys
Normally Cowboys ride Broncos, but I don’t see anyone taming the wild stallion known as Peyton Manning who is on pace for 64 touchdowns while completing 75% of his passes. What do opportunities and leads have in common? They both get blown by the Cowboys who continue their bipolar ride to mediocrity. They look great, then they look bad. The Dallas Cowboys are as unpredictable as Kanye West’s twitter feed and not nearly as entertaining. Rapping, football or pizza — Peyton Manning just delivers.
