Three Things to Watch This Week - Week 15

The defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots play Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday December 17th at 4:25 PM.



Me avoiding spoilers this week
(“I am one with the Force and the Force is with me.”)

I'm hoping last week was a fluke.  Because that game was no fun to watch.

No Thursday Morning Third Down Back Game Balls (TM) for anyone for Monday night's efforts.  Maybe the whole team was so excited for Last Jedi they forgot to practice last week?  Don't know.  Tough to say.


Kenny Power Rankings:

1) Loggins

2) Tom

3) Baker

4) McCormick

5) Rogers


Here's three things I'll be watching this Sunday afternoon:


1) Kenny Britt - Kenny Britt?  Prisint! (Also, I did not realize he was 6'3''.  I didn't know WRs were allowed to be that tall.)

2) Rob Gronkowski - Gronk back?  Gronk back.  Good.  Now don't go out there and do antything stupid again.

3) Dion Lewis - Dion did NOT average 6 yards per carry last week.  I wa…

Decent game last week.  Thursday Morning Third Down Back Game Balls (TM) go to :

1) Eric Lee (who?) for having the game of his life against his former team last week.  Interception!Sack!

2) Dion Lewis - Dion had 92 yards on 15 carries for a gaudy 6.1 yard average. 

3) Rex Burkhead - Rex also averaged over 6 yards per card and added tw…

I'll say it...  I did not particularly care for the way the Dolphins played defense last week.  Bunch of cheap shot artists.

Here's three thoughts I had about last Sunday:

1) Nate Ebner - Great effort on the fake punt... and now he's done for the year.  Rat farts.

2) Trey Flowers - Probably having the best year of anyone on the defensive line.

3) Stephon Gilmore - I still think Butler is a better corner, but Gilmore has looked less awful out there as of late.

My prediction: Pats 24, Bills 16

2) Rhett

3) Alfred

4) University

5) Adam

Here's three things I liked about last week:

1) Stephen Gostkowski - Gostkowski kicked a 62 yard field goal last week that looked like it would have been good from 70 yards.  Whoa.

2) Tom Brady - Brady started 12 for 12 against Oakland and it was all over early.  Not a ton of suspense last week.  If they go up by four scores again at any point, please take him out and put him in bubble wrap.

3) Brandin Cooks - I still like the Brandin Cooks trade.  Just the right number of Cooks.

My prediction: Pats 30, Dolphins 17

(Ritz would have been up here few years ago, but I feel like they've changed the recipe since Kraft sold the brand off.)

Looks like we won't have to worry about a playoff game in Denver this year.  Brock Osweiler was not so good for the Broncos last week.  Right after Cris Collinsworth came out with  "He looks sharp out here tonight!", the Brocketship immediately threw this beauty

Bonus Brock gif!  Watch out, Blue Jacket Guy!

Here's three things I liked about last week:

1) Rob Gronkowski - That was definitely a touchdown.

2) Dion Lewis - Love Dion Lewis.  That return TD was a thing of beauty. 

3) …

1) Martellus

2) Mags

3) Tony

4) Michael

5) Dickie


1) Martellus Bennett - Marty back?  Marty's back!  Woo hoo!  Wait a minute... Source: Bennett has torn rotator cuff, labrum.  Yikes.

2) James White - Still love me some James White.  He's flying under the radar with 43 receptions already.

3) Trey Flowers - Watch Trey get back onsides before San Diego can snap the ball.  That's great hustle!


My prediction: Pats 31, Broncos 21

This week we have Fake Josh McDaniels filling for Fake Bill Belichick.

What's up, Brolins and Lady Brolins?

WE TRADED JIMMY G?  AND THAT'S ALL WE GOT FOR HIM?!

Jimmy G was my future.  Bill and Tom were going to retire then Jimmy and me were going to take over and win the next six Super Bowls together.

What am I even doing here now?

This is sadder…

We lost Hightower for the season?  Farts.

With inclement weather in the forecast for Sunday, let's focus on the ground game this week:

1) Dion Lewis - I've never seen anyone cut and change direction as fast as he can.

2) James White - He's been fantastic on third downs.  He's like that third bowl of porridge for this offense.  Juuuuust right.

3) Rex Burkhead - Is this the week Burkhead has his breakout game?  Maybe!


My prediction:  Patriots 27, Chargers 24
