In this blog, I will be reflecting on the games that happened last week and having a short prediction list of this week’s games that way there is something to talk about for next weeks blog. Last week was a horrible week for me guessing the right games with 6 of my guesses being wrong. This week I will just be going over the games I guessed wrong.
The biggest upset for me was the Bears against the Giants this was a high scoring game leaving people thinking that maybe the Giants are better than their record suggests. Although The main reason why the bears lost was because they did not have their starting quarterback in. I predicted this game to be won by the bears and I was wrong. The Packers against the Cardinals was just a horrible game by the Packers which as a result they fired their head coach Mike McCarthy which is better for the organization he was trying to make the team something that it wasn’t this season with everything revolved around the passing game. He refused to start the star running back Aaron Jones for the majority of the season and only gives he an average of 12 carries a game when he should be getting 20 plus carries. Cardinals won this game somehow with a quarterback only throwing for 149 yards (NFL). My prediction was wrong. The next game I guess wrong was the Colts against the Jags. This was just a good game for the Jags defense shutting out the Colts. They kept them from scoring any points meanwhile the Colts defense is so bad that they allowed the Jags offense to score which is very bad on their part. The Colts came into this game on a winning streak and I thought they were a good enough team to hold that streak, but I guessed wrong. The next game that I guessed wrong was the Vikings against Patriots game. The Vikings failed to get the running game going and they sometimes try to force the ball into their playmaker’s hands like Diggs and Thielen. The Patriots seemed calm and were able to come into that game doing whatever they wanted to win that game. I guessed that game and this will probably be the last time that I predict the Vikings to win because they look horrible. The next game that I guessed wrong was the Eagles against the Redskins, I guessed the Redskins because I felt that Alex Smith was not that big of a deal to this team because of all the other players they have on defense, but I was mistaken and they lost to a very injured Eagles team. This will also be the last time that I guess the game for the Redskins. Another game I guessed wrong was the Chargers against Steelers game and I knew that the Chargers were good, but in my defense, they have been inconsistent and they lost their running back Melvin Gordon. The Chargers played at a very high level this game and Keenan Allen had an incredible game it seemed as if he was the only other receiver in the game with how many plays he made. The last game that I guessed wrong was the Dolphins against the Bills game. The Dolphins got their quarterback back which he threw for 3 touchdowns. Both teams looked similar in skills. in my opinion, the bills should’ve won this game Josh Allen needed a little more air on the game-winning play. Either way, I still guessed the game wrong which I guessed the Bills to win mainly because of their good defense, but I was wrong. My predictions for next week are Titans vs Jags: Titans, Panthers vs Browns: Panthers, Ravens vs Chiefs: Chiefs, Colts vs Texans: Texans, Patriots vs Dolphins: Pats, Giants vs Redskins: Giants, Saints vs Bucs: Saints, Falcons vs Packers: Packers, Jets vs Bills: Bills, Bengals vs Chargers: Chargers, Broncos vs 49ers: Broncos, Cowboys vs Eagles: Cowboys, Steelers vs Raiders: Steelers, Lions vs Cardinals: Lions, Bears vs Rams: Bears, Vikings vs Seahawks: Seahawks.
