NFL WEEK 12 2014 : A THANKSGIVING SPECIAL

We roar into Week 12 of the 2014 NFL season with our Fantasy Football league very competitive, our two remaining survivor pool players in a death grip struggle for the title, and with football set for Sunday, Sunday night, two games Monday and then the traditional Thanksgiving day games. Is there any better week for football? With a cold front expected to hit our fair town Wednesday, its shaping up to be a great holiday week. 

Need some flow for Black Friday?  Try out these money makers. 

The Broncos had their let down game last week. So this is the week Peyton and company bounce back against our Dolphins. It's going to be warm, if not downright sticky, and Peyton does much better in warm weather than cold. Petyon has a palatial condo on the tip of  South Beach, so maybe he's had some home cooking and this isn't as much a road trip for him as say Buffalo. 
 But we like the Dolphins to keep it close. They have been playing well, are well rested, and can compete. Take the 7 points for the hometown Fins and head on out to the stadium and cheer your cash home. 

The Bears came though for us last week, and we like the Bruins at home again, -5, against the Bucs. 

The Cowpokes on the road against the woeful Giants in New Jersey.  The Gints are getting 4 at home, while the pokes are coming off a bye week after a game in our favourite city in the world: London. We were initially thinking the Giants would keep it close against a rival. But on further review,  we like the under 48. 

Love the Saints at home Monday night against the Ravens -3. Can't see the Saints losing three in a row at home. 

Updated: Like the Texans over the visiting Bengals, even with RB Arian Foster out.  Take the Lone Star State boys with their new QB over the up and down Bengals. This is the cats third road trip in a row, and after a blow out by the Pack, an upset over the Saints, they are due to revert to their mean, and lose in Texas. Texans -2 over the Bungles. 

Also like the Bills in Detroit over the Jets. There's something about adversity that makes a team concentrate and perform.  Take the boys from snow-land giving up a pedestrian -2.5 over the hapless J..E…T…S

"With the first pick in the 2015 NFL draft the Oakland Raiders trade their first round pick to the NY Jets for the Jets first round picks in 2015, 2016, and 2017. The New York Jets are on the clock. 

With the first round pick in the 2015 draft, the New Jets select Jameis Winston, quarterback, Florida State."

Great picks last week. I like the Bears this week and I think the Dolphins could pull out an upset- say 24-23 on a last second 48 yd fg?

For the last few weeks the big fella has been flying in one and then two fresh pigs from the market in Chicago and then his chefs go to town with pork sliders, pan con lechon, and of course the most amazing chicarones in town. Fresh, crackling and sizzling hot roasted pig skin. This week however, they added to the menu the rare organic Elmwood Heritage Turkeys- wild raised, almost impossible to get- $20/pound. They deep fried the turkey after brining it in a soy/miso sauce. The most amazing, buttery, delicious turkey i have ever had. Then the chefs made turkey skin chicharones and served them on a plate with the pork skin, with a dollop of caviar and sour cream. Heaven.

Uh, I hate to break it to you, but the Dolphin game is IN Denver. Dementia is a bitch, isn't it.

Christ, is REN still open? I thought the Health Dept. came in and shuttered that place after a multitude of patrons had food poisoning.

Dolphin game is in Denver. It's that attention to detail that makes you one of the top trial attorneys around I suppose.

Dolphins 21-17 at the half. Bears won and covered. yeah, I'm real upset with these picks. Knuckleheads.

Rumpole said...

Yeah real stupid of me to take the Fins +7. They covered and damn near won the game. But what a lousy pick.
