|Norv's "I'm taking a dump" and "We just lost to the Chiefs" faces|
San Diego at Kansas City (+1) ***NFL GAME OF THE MONTH***
The AFC West MIGHT produce an 8-8 division winner. And whether that division winner's record is 8-8 or whether it is 9-7, that division winner's name is the Kansas City Chiefs.
Don't be thrown off by Norville's 2-0 start, degens. The San Diego baby blue shirts are the same hapless, under achieving shit bags that Norv coaches every year, and its why he and his road map of a face will not be coaching in Tijuana North by next September. The Chargers drew two chumps in Oakland and Tennessee to start the season, but then last week got absolutely pummeled at home by Atlanta, who flew across country on a short work week to do so.
Kansas City struggled for the first 10 quarters of the 2012 campaign, but somehow saw the light during the second half in New Orleans last week. 21 second half points (including overtime) helped them send the lowly Saints to 0-3, and it was the official coming out party for the league's # 1 overall offense through 3 weeks, and eventual AFC West champs.
The Chiefs have covered 6 of last 8 against the Chargers, they've won 2 straight versus San Diego at Arrowhead, and the home team is 4-1 ATS last 5 in this series. Total players take note: the Chiefs have played 9 straight unders against the AFC West and the Chargers have played 6 straight unders following a double digit loss at home. Chiefs win 24-19.
New England at Buffalo(+4)
Belichick and crew are a wounded animal right now. Two straight losses and its the first time they've been under .500 since early 2003. Prior to last year's game in Buffalo, in which the Patriots rolled out to a 21-0 lead before eventually losing 34-31, they had beat the Bills 15 straight times. That's kind of dominating.
But things are not right through 3 weeks in Foxboro. Brady has only thrown 4 touchdowns and he's been sacked 7 times. The quick slant go to Wes Walker is gone folks, sorry to report, and both of Brady's TE options are hurt. Aaron Hernandez has been out, and now Gronk the porn star banger, and future broke former athlete, has injured his hip. Not to mention that Brady's blindside protector Logan Mankins didn't practice all week.
There were high hopes for Buffalo coming into the season, and they've responded well after getting BLOWED out in week 1 by the Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Stevie Johnson, and Fred Jackson are ready to assume the duties as rulers of the AFC East. And today's win against an older, banged up team that they're no longer intimidated by, will go a long way towards that statement. 27-21 Bills.
Washington (+1) at Tampa Bay
Hopes were high in DC following RG3's impressive debut in New Orleans 3 weeks ago. A week 1 dominating win at New Orleans had the DMV thinking real big things. But that was tempered real quick when us Skins fans realized that our Special Teams unit still resembles a Benny Hill Show skit and our defense is as competent as a Fox News film editor, whose working the 7 second delay button.
The Redskins offense has been impressive this year, and it's still the hope we hang our burgundy and gold hats on. RG3 HAS been impressive, and Skins rookie running back Alfred Morris has not been too shabby either. The 6th round draft pick is averaging almost 4.5 yards/carry, and is on pace to rush for over 1,400 yards.
Tampa plays their 3rd straight game against the NFC East. And through 3 weeks, they have the honor of having rushing and passing defenses on the polar opposite ends of each other. The Bucs have the #1 rushing defense in the league, yet their passing defense ranks DFL at 32nd. RG3 has another huge road game against an NFC South opponent, and the Redskins secondary gets healthy against Josh Freeman. The Bucs have lost 4 straight ATS the week before going into their bye week. 26-17 Redskins
Last Week 1-3 ATS
Thursday night 1-0 ATS
YTD 7-4-1 ATS
Since 2010 82-45-8 ATS (65%)
