Impressive Prime Time Win for Bengals. Wait, What?

Thus marks the end of Monday Night Football for the 2014 NFL Season. I can't say it was a great catalog of games, but when your prime time competition is Sunday Night Football and Thursday Night Football, I guess finishing in the middle ain't that bad.  And while the game immediately looked like a normal Bengals effort, Andy Dalton's pick-six at the opening of the game seemed to...

Week 5 picks: Can the Carolina Panthers get back on track vs. Bears?

Carolina Panthers over Chicago Bears- After giving up 75 points the last two weeks, confidence in Carolina is at a low. I still don’t know how they almost shut out a potent Detroit offense.
