If you want to play in January and February in the NFL, you have to win football games in December. The NFL season doesn’t begin in earnest until the turkey has been scarfed down on Thanksgiving, and with the first week of December just about in the rearview, it’s go time for teams on the bubble.
As is the case this time of the year, the Week 14 slate has a plethora of divisional and conference matchups, just about all of them featuring some sort of playoff implications.
Let’s take a look at the lines for Week 14, shall we? As always, these are coming to you via Bovada.lv.
Denver (-10.5) at Oakland
The Broncos are already AFC West champions, but Peyton Manning will look to carve up the Raiders defense in this rivalry matchup.
Baltimore at Washington (-3)
What a difference a week makes, as the upstart Redskins are favorites at home against a Ravens team that a few weeks ago was considered one of the AFC’s best team.
Chicago (-3) at Minnesota
These two teams met just two weeks ago, a...
BEST OF MAXIM
Six more divisional rematches as we get ready for the final four weeks of the regular season. With four playoff spots secure, the race is on.
I was jacked back then Juan…
Earlier this week, in the Fantasy Football Support Group post, I broke down the strange, new curse that is the Thursday Night Football QB conundrum. Basically, with very few exceptions, quarterbacks – and a lot of stars in general – have been terrible on the NFL Network this season. As I finished writing that, something horrifying dawned on me – I have Peyton Manning on Thursday...
Denver controlled the game but settled for four field goals on its way to a 26-13 victory in Oakland Thursday night. Peyton Manning did not have his "MVP moment" but nor did he need one: the Broncos may be the most complete team in football.
Led by their resurgent superstar quarterback, the Denver Broncos have plenty to play for over the next four weeks even though they've already clinched the AFC West title.
The Oakland Raiders, meanwhile, are searching for any signs of progress amid their 10th straight season without a playoff appearance.
In the midst of their longest winning streak in 14 years, the visiting...
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning told Kurt Warner in an interview that aired before Thursday night's Broncos game in Oakland that playing in the Super Bowl in his hometown has crossed his mind.
"Yeah I guess you think about it, you know, sometimes," Manning said. "New Orleans has been a special place for my family and for brother, Cooper, who lives there...
Fingers in the remote control. Switch from Thursday Night Football imminent.
Thurs., December 6, 9-3 Denver Broncos at 3-9 Oakland Raiders – For fantasy eyes only
The marketing trolls at the NFL Network are working overtime to promote tonight's Thursday Night Football contest between the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders.
This stinker will interest only...
Remember when we all made fun of Rob Lowe earlier this year when he “broke” the “exclusive” “news” on Twitter that Peyton Manning not only wasn’t re-signing with the Indianapolis Colts, but he was never going to play football again? Yeah, that was a fun time. By the way, in case you haven’t had the luxury of Manning carrying your fantasy football team to the playoffs...
(Author's note: I came up with the general theme and "Stop it." idea halfway through writing this. Hence why it seems a bit disorganized. Still in better shape than the Bills, I think.)
Hey everybody! Did you miss me?
Ok then. Well if anybody even knows/remembers who the hell I am, I have not written for Buffalo Wins for a long time because of...
