NFL: Who Lost Week 9?
Week 9 in the NFL will go down as one of the craziest in the 2000's for NFL-- first off DOGS went 9-4 Against The Spread and 7 Underdogs won outright. So the immediate answer to who won "Lost Week 9?" is...
Every parlay and teaser had the Buffalo Bills or the Dallas Cowboys in it. But that is not what this is for (or maybe it is)-- let's look at the teams and individuals with those teams that made this week awful for specific fans and NFL fans.
The Bills flew into Jacksonville at a 15.5 point favorite. Josh Allen was in the midst of an MVP campaign and things were looking great. When the game was over, the Bills became part of history as a team that is #7 on the list of losing to a team that the spread was so large. Look at their game history this season, they might be a charade.
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
Mike Shanahan's winning percentage as a coach in now .444. Not good. The 49er are running out of excuses of who is injured and who isn't. They just got beat by a divisional rival AT HOME, against a BACKUP QB, and that team was without their #1 Wide Receiver.
GREEN BY PACKERS
Dear Lord. If I need to explain this to you, you should not be reading this post.
Joe Burrow and the Bengals looked great against the Ravens 2 weeks ago. Now they have back to back loses to the NY Jets and divisional rival NY Jets. That Offensive Line is showing early fatigue. That is not a good thing.
How do you not show up for a professional football game in your "big house" and then get worked, at times by 30 points, to a team coached by a 70 year old? Oh yeah, Mike McCarthy is your coach. I guess you get a pass for now since you covered for 7 straight weeks.
LOS ANGELES RAMS
You traded for Von Miller. You are linked to maybe OBJ as a signing (I doubt it). And you have said that Stafford was your missing piece to the Championship. But yet you lost to a Derek Henry-less Titans at home. What is up, bro?
SO THERE ARE YOU CANDIDATES....
Adrian did a great job of breaking it down today on "DON'T HASSLE US WE'RE LOCAL."
It is the San Francisco 49ers. They had the worst week. Playing at home against a Colt McOld and without Hopkins and you get worked that hard. Terrible. Ridiculous. The coach isn't a genius, he has just survived by convincing the front office that he is.
LET'S NOT FORGET THERE IS ONE MORE GAME TONIGHT...
Either QB Fields and the Chicago Bears or QB Roethlisberger and the Steelers will do something epic and stupid that makes us forget Sunday. But I have a prediction for you...
