Yo, What's up, everybody? It's Jacob.
Billy the underdog Sports network.
Crazy Crazy Week.
Another one in the NFL Re 10 is now behind us.
Um, we think good in our picks this week.
Um, if you're watching the pick stream where we preview week, Um, see, how many games to be lose, I think.
Well, I lost too.
Um, I predicted that the cardinals would be the bucks they lost.
And I predicted that the Cowboys would be the Vikings.
They lost, but into everything else.
I think we go 11 and two on the weak, and that is something that we will take.
Um um, this week, we're gonna start.
Um, we'll go game by game.
Little bit recap for each game.
I'm not giving my power rankings and a little bit of breaking news.
Um, I just learned a few hours ago, Um, then I'll get into a little bit as well.
So stick around the end of two of the stream for that.
So start off Detroit, Chicago.
Uh, right before the game starts, we learn that Matthew Stafford's gonna miss the game due to fractures in his back.
Jeff Driscoll gets the start place surprisingly well through a long touchdown pass.
The lines were in it throughout the game.
Dubinsky played, uM, probably his best game all season.
Threw three touchdown passes.
Um, this game is a lot closer than it should have been, though.
A jester school quarterback.
No disrespect to Jeff Driskel.
He's not exactly a starting quarterback in this league, I would say, um, but he played well, Uh, threw the ball relatively well, ran a little bit, even caught a pass, and the Lions defense played well enough to keep them in it.
Um, relatively low scoring game.
The Bears get the win 20 to 13 there now for a five on the year trying to get things back on track and get back into the playoff mix.
Baltimore Cincinnati Really a snooze fest, but Lamar Jackson played really well for total touchdowns, another perfect lacerating for him.
Um, they beat the worst team in the NFL by a lot, and they seem to have had a trend of doing that, Obviously, the weak one dismantling of the Dolphins and how they do it against the bangles.
Um, no, more like really good defensively.
They look good but they didn't really have too much to worry about.
Marcus Peters had another pick. Six.
So, UM, he's at what to pick sixes and three games so far with the Ravens.
So he's become a very valuable asset for the Ravens defense.
So good pickup for Baltimore.
Offensively, they look great.
They ran that that Heisman Baggage, where they had RG three Lamar and Mark Ingram in there, said three Heisman.
But I thought that was pretty cool.
Um, even a play where Lamar pitching rg three. He got some urine.
So they're showing a lot of versatility with the things that they want to do with the run game, the thing that they really revolve around on offense.
So good one for Baltimore.
Uh, Mark Jackson look good, and I really like what they're doing offensively in terms of just making not their focal point.
Um, around what? He does well during the ball.
Ah ah, Buffalo In Cleveland, I pick the Browns to win the game.
Unfortunately, my podcast partner, Kurt Thomas er, has lovely bills.
I can't get the wind in Cleveland.
Um, there was, you know, the chance for the late few.
Ogle my house ca He misses it.
Um, Cleveland And look as well as I thought they would This game, Um, I thought that they would come alive.
I thought they'd kind of roll, um, to a big win.
I thought I'd be pretty convincing. It wasn't.
It's still a win over a team.
Was gonna be a playoff team for Cleveland.
They should have beat Denver.
That was again that they really needed to win to start this kind of role. Ah.
So I was sitting at three and six going into our They host Pittsburgh this week.
Um, so I'm gonna say that the Browns win this week as well.
I'll get into that a little bit more later.
Um, but I think they kind of keep this role going and, ah, we'll see what they do.
But they win this past week over Buffalo.
So a good win for the Browns to kind of finally get off the schneid.
Jarvis Landry kind of touchdown. Higgins.
Carly, attention Pass for Cleveland.
Um, a little bit of a confrontation between Jarvis Landry and Baker Mayfield on the sideline.
Ah, in this game.
So maybe a little bit of ah fire lighting under Baker, Mayfield, Atlanta, New Orleans. I pick the Falcons.
They were plus 14 going into the game, and I said Bet on them to win straight up.
And would you know it, uh, Falcons got the win.
And I don't think this changes anything in terms of, you know, the NFC playoff picture.
And I'll get into that when I talk about power rankings.
But the Saints were bound for Los eventually that we're gonna go 15 and one, and the Falcons were bound for a win eventually.
It just kind of the perfect storm, uh, coming together.
When it's a divisional game, it makes it even more.
Um, likely that happened is because you can't really rule anybody out in the divisional game.
Um, the Falcons defense came alive.
They came into the game with only seven ***.
I believe they had four this past game against Drew Brees and Saints.
Um, Matt Ryan look good, Julio Jones.
A good Devante Freeman did get hurt, as did Austin.
Hooper there started on, so we'll see how that plays out for Atlanta going forward.
Even they're sending a tune 70 really much to play for in the first place, getting winner of the Saints.
You could see and Dan Quinn how much that meant to him in that team.
So going for the Falcons, they won 26 to 9 Giants and Jets.
I said it would be kind of a shootout on it, kind of was.
I mean, Daniel Jones went off a little bit, for I think you have, what, four touchdowns with three touchdowns? Golden Tate had a few touchdowns Darius Slay and had a few touchdowns.
So really good overall game for the Giants offense.
Unfortunately, the Jets defense play well.
Jamal Adams had that play where he just ripped the ball away from Daniel James and ran it back for a touchdown.
Um, so he played very well, Really.
Um, a couple of young safeties and lily Gray now lighting up or Jamaat Adams and make a fitzpatrick.
We'll talk about it a little bit.
Um, but the jets, um, get their second went on the year.
Um and then same darling said that they saw a chance of the playoffs, which I thought was laughable.
But what else is going to say? You know, um so the jets go to two and seven.
The Giants two and eight on the year after that, it was gonna be a fun game to watch.
And it was, um, a couple young offenses shooting it out.
Ah, young defensive player, Young stud making a big play.
And it was an impact all game.
Had a play where he jumped over the line of scrimmage.
Troy Polamalu was known for doing to stop a short run.
So I mean, Jamal, I was remarkable, and the Jets got the win.
Another fun game to watch Kyle, a Marine.
That offense of greater and greater each week, unfortunately, didn't do enough to get the job done.
And Tampa Bay Kristen Kirk had three touchdown receptions, though, so it was really back and forth Game, Um, but I think the biggest take away from me and that game was the fact that Kyla Murray looks great.
The offense looks like it's getting better each week.
It's clicking Kliff Kingsbury and it is gonna work.
Uh, so I think that's the biggest thing that Arizona fancy date can take away from.
This is the fact that, um, you know this thing with Kyla Murray? There's a lot of question marks about.
Is he too small? Is this offense gonna work? Is this Cliff Kingsbury system gonna work? And so far, it's showing that it will, um, the only situation going on with them when I was a running back situation, which, I mean, they've got three guys who can legitimately get carries is just the fact that what they're gonna do with David Johnson, because he was really a nonfactor this past game, because canyon drinks getting a majority of Gary's, not because he's kind of earned it, since he's shown up there.
Um, Chase Edmunds, who stepped in for David Johnson with an injury.
He played well, um, so I mean, that's kind of leaving David Johnson the odd man out.
I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see him in Arizona next year.
So if Arizona has Dragon Edmonds and they can trade David Johnson for pieces, I don't see why you don't do it.
So I I want to be surprised at all if we don't see David Johnson back in Arizona next year.
That's another story for another time.
Ah, the big thing right here is that the bucks got the win at home, 13 23.
But I think the biggest story right now, uh, and from that game is how well the Cardinalsoffense is playing Kansas City in Tennessee.
I also told you to bet the Titans would win straight up.
They were plus six going in game, and Ryan Tannehill came through in the clutch.
Um, it's a problem for the Chiefs, Um, that Pat Mahomes throws for 400 plus yards and three touchdowns, and they lose.
Such says a lot about their defense.
Uh, Ryan Tannehill Haddock.
Lush, UM, game winning drive, his third since taking over as a starter for Mark's Marios There, Game one Driving Force starts.
So the Titans, they look like they're gonna be in the playoff mix in the A F. C.
Um, they said, I believe, what five and five now, Um, Kansas, sitting out six and four and in that division, um, you know, with Oakland looming, I think that's something that they need to start kind of kicking it into high gear.
But like I said, if Patrick moves during for north of 400 yards and three touchdowns and your defense does the game free, that's a problem so I wouldn't be surprised.
I said going into the season, um, that maybe the chiefs kind of stumble and they were the wild card team on the outside looking in.
I kind of refrained those statements as I started looking hot.
Um, I think that the injury is kind of, uh to my home's kind of derailed them a little bit.
And but he looked phenomenal on Sunday as just the fact that the defense gonna do anything to stop the Titans.
Unfortunately for the Chiefs and other sitting at six and four with Oakland, only a game back and they've been playing well, I thought that I thought it was gonna be the Chargers that was gonna be the team's kind of unseeded them going into the year.
The charges were my Super Bowl team pick.
Obviously, they're kind of out of it.
Um, but that said, uh, you can't overlook Oakland the way they've played this season, the way they're currently playing, Um, And if you're the chief's, you kind of got to start lighting a fire under your butt and start winning.
They didn't do it this week.
I told you to pick the Titans who were plus six. You're welcome.
If you did that, uh, the titans got the wind up sitting at +55 in the a f c.
Very competitive, ABC South with the tax inciting than cold right now.
So very interesting playing out there.
Miami in Indianapolis.
I told you to pick the dolphins to They were plus 10 and 1/2 and gas plot they want.
Um, I didn't believe in Brian Hoyer whatsoever.
He threw three interceptions.
The officers look terrible.
Really, really bad game for the offense.
Um, Ryan Fitzpatrick out of rushing. Touchdown.
Um, I think Miami is just the better overall team, Which is weird to say.
But when you look at the quarterback play, I'd rather have Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Hoyer.
And it showed I said 17.
13 would be the final score of this game.
I was kind of ****ed about that.
Um, about Miami's won two in a row.
How about that? And the Colts have lost two in a row and are stumbling, and the season under today they wouldn't be in the playoffs, so they're really hoping that jacoby percent on the way home get back because their winless without T y Hilton in that lineup think that what? Open seven without the white album.
And they need you go deeper set because Brian horror and get the job done.
Uh, Caroline, and grieve a really good game.
Um, kind of sloppy with snow and everything.
Uh, Carolina really help their own in Lambeau, I thought was gonna be more of a blowout.
It came down to the last play where Christian McCaffrey was stopped on the one yard line.
Um, Green Bay escapes of the 24 to 6 team win.
I'll get more in Green Bay, my power rankings of us.
But the gist of that game is kind of a sloppy game.
Um, nothing really to explosive playing in the snow.
And Lambeau. So you know how that goes.
The Rams and the Steelers.
This is one of those I got wrong s.
I actually want 10 3 on the week, I believe, um, I pick the rams to be them. I thought I'd be pretty convincing.
I thought they went by around 10.
And the Steelers defense is making me a believer, which scares me, because the second I usually get an ounce of faith.
It's usually just ripped away from me.
My hearts ripped out on the Steelers.
Just let me down.
And I think that's why it's gonna happen this week cause I kind of have a little bit of faith in them right now.
And I think they're gonna walk in and lose to Cleveland.
Um, that said, though, How about Mika Fitzpatrick? This dude has been an absolute bonified studs and showing up in Pittsburgh.
You got another touchdown on Sunday, got another interception on Sunday, the things that he's doing for this defense.
