AFCW Early Offseason Outlook

First off, congrats to the 2 Chiefs fans on their long-awaited SB run. I’m sure they’re as shocked as we are that Fat Andy didn’t choke again. All those years of Andy Reid being a shitty father raising 2 deadbeat sons, finally paid off. Also, fuck you.

As we move on to the offseason, the theme for the other 3 losers is simple, yet not so simple: “How the fuck do we catch the Chiefs?” A lot is about to take place from now thru August, when training camp starts, so buckle up because this already has the makings of an all-time AFCW offseason.

A few key offseason dates:

Feb. 24 – Mar. 2nd: NFL Combine

Feb. 25 – Mar. 10th: Teams can designate Franchise or Transition players.

Mar. 16th: Clubs may enter negotiations with free agents. AKA legal tampering period.

Mar. 18th: The 2020 league year and FA begins at 1pm EST.

Apr. 23 – 25th: 2020 NFL Draft

Apr. 27th: Teams may tryout, sign current XFL players.

Who gives a fuck about the rest.

Early AFCW Headlines:

Chargers moving on from Rivers – The Chargers and Rivers have mutually agreed to part ways. Sounds like an old love story, “it’s not you, it’s me.” Either way, this creates a HUGE hole at the single most important position for LAC. Tank for Sunshine 2020?

Raiders are expected to show interest in Tom Brady – Another offseason, another media driven QB controversy for the Raiders. I’d say it’s 80/20 that Carr is the week 1 starter for the LV opener.

Not much else going on other than the Broncos need to figure out their ownership structure, but who really GAF about that, and hopefully the Chiefs are hungover all offseason.

That’s it for now. We’ll get more of an in depth look at each team’s needs and targets via FA and draft closer to those dates, along with some mock drafts to pass the time. Plus, I’m sure we can all agree that we’re sick of looking at the fucking Chiefs SB article, minus the hot chick of course. Moving on…

And good luck this offseason, other than our 2 Chiefs fans, we fucking need it.

Yours Truly,


Super Bowl LIV Chiefs vs. 49ers:

They finally did it!   I’ve been a fan of the Chiefs since I started caring about football (early 90’s) and this has been a long time coming.  After a couple of home playoff wins where the old demons seemed to be back only to be vanquished by Mahomes and crew the Chiefs are in the Super Bowl.

If you put fan loyalties aside I think this is one of the best matchups football fans could of asked for.  Both teams have been excellent most of the year and both teams have exciting big play potential.  The Chiefs big plays tend to come on offense where the 49ers defense is usually the ones making big plays.  This game should be a battle and I expect a close high scoring affair.  Look for a key turnover or two to determine the out come.

There are many good story lines for this game.  From Dee Ford, to the new young QBs and even to Andy Reid with another opportunity to cement his claim as one of the all time greats.  I’m not going to get into all of them here.  What follows will be what I see as the keys to the game for each team and a game prediction.

49ers Key to the Game: Run the damn ball. I think we will see the 49ers try to keep up what has been working and that is run the ball.  If they can keep their offense on the field and run through KC like they did the Packers then that’s exactly what they will do.  While the 49ers are better equipped to do some damage through the air than the Titans were the Chiefs defensive strength has been in defending the pass.

On the defensive side the 49ers have to pressure Mahomes (with 4) while containing him inside the pocket.  Don’t give him an escape route and don’t give him too much time to have receivers get open.  There is tons of speed on the 49ers defense and this will be the biggest challenge Mahomes has faced all year.

Chiefs Keys to the Game:  The offensive line needs to hold up against a nasty front 7.  Give Mahomes the time he needs to survey the field and give the receivers the time to find the soft spot in the zone coverage.  49ers play mostly zone and they are very good at it.  Mahomes is also very good passing against zone coverage, strength vs. strength.  I also think screens will be a big part of this game to slow down the 49ers aggressiveness.    

On defense the Chiefs must first prove yet again they can slow down or stop the run.   They need to play as a team to fill the holes in the run game and seal the outside edge. Their goal should be to get to 3rd and 5+ and make Jimmy G beat you. This season the Chiefs have been very good at defending the pass when the can pin their ears back and rush the passer.

It’s a very similar breakdown of the Titans game and that is because I view the Niners as a much better version of the Titans.

Both these teams have tons and tons of talent and this Niners team will be the toughest challenge the Chiefs have faced.  While only 1 point I was personally surprised the Chiefs were the favored team.

In the end I see Mahomes continuing what has been a historically good playoffs.  I see the Chiefs defense stepping up again against the run and forcing more passes than the 49ers would ideally like and I see Jimmy G throwing a key pick.   I can’t wait for this game, this season has been amazing and the Chiefs are one win from their ultimate goal.

Chiefs win: 34-31

AFC Championship Game Take Two

Here we are again.  The Chiefs are one win away from the super bowl, they are at home and coming off a big win in the divisional round.

The big names have been knocked out.  Brady gone.  Lamar gone.  What is left are the Tennessee Titans and Derrick Henry who very well could be the scariest football player in these playoffs.   Teams know the running game is coming and have been completely incapable of stopping it.  Both the Ravens and Patriots had top run defenses this season and both got completely run over.   The Chiefs do not have a top run defense and by many metrics is toward the bottom of the league.  Derrick Henry will get his in this game.

On the other side you have the high flying Chiefs who just scored 51 points in less than 3 full quarters erasing a 24-0 1st quarter hole.  In Kansas City they prefer to keep the ball in the MVP’s hand throwing to their playmakers.  There isn’t much interest in running the ball until the end of the game.  These two teams at least offensively are complete opposites.  Like Henry Mahomes and crew will get theirs.

Titans keys to the game:  Do not fall behind early in this one.   If the Titans find themselves down 14-0 in the early going it will take them out of their game plan and force Tannehill to sling it around the field.  Tannehill has been great this season but he isn’t asked to do too much.  He hasn’t even thrown over 100 yards in either playoff win.   The Titans run game opens up the passing game but if they find themselves in an early hole and their passing game becomes more predictable I think you will see a Tannehill closer to what made him a backup at the start of the year.  Titans need to keep on riding Henry with some play action mixed in for some big plays. As long as this game is close the Titans can keep feeding Henry all day long allowing him to wear out the Chiefs defense.

Chiefs keys to the game:  Tackling and finishing off those tackles will be HUGE.  If someone gets their hands on Henry they need to get him on the turf, he has done tons of damage after first contact. They don’t have to stop Henry but they must slow him down and force Tannehill to pick up more first downs rather than letting them just run for them all day long.  This game is all about the Chiefs defense, Mahomes and crew will score but how many chances they have will be determined by how many stops the Defense will be able to come up with.

Both these teams are hot right now.  Chiefs have won 7 in a row, the Titans have been taking down division winners left and right.   Chiefs want to come out fast and get the early lead.  The Titans want to slow the game down and limit the Chiefs offensive possessions.  Neither team can afford early mental errors or turnovers.

In the end I think Mahomes is too much for the Titans pass defense and the Chiefs defense does enough to slow down the running game of the Titans.

Prediction:  31-24 Chiefs win.

AFCW Week 13 Preview

Well…………Its safe to say that last week was a clusterfuck as big as a monkey fucking a football. Denver was destroyed by Buffalo and the Raiders were bitch slapped by the Jets. The Chargers and Chiefs were on their bye week and that was the best thing that happened to the division. This week we have the AFC West vs the AFC West. Let’s get into it.

Chargers at Broncos
The Chargers are traveling to the winter wonderland that is Denver to play the Broncos. The weather is calling for a high of 39 degrees. Perfect weather for running the ball and controlling the clock. The only question is which team will actually do that. Both teams have good running games with two good backs. To make things even more interesting, Rivers has started to regress and that is a big factor. Both teams have good pass rushers. The more you look at this game the more interesting it becomes.

The Broncos are a very tough team to beat at home and even harder in cold weather. The Chargers play well on the road against division teams and I expect them to do exactly that. This game will come down to a big play or two , a commitment to the run and great defense.

My Prediction: Broncos 23 Chargers 20

Fantasy Player of the Game: The running backs for both teams are a great call. Eckler/Gordon and Lindsay/Freeman. The only bad part is which duo will show up.

(Sidenote from Balls: Never trust a man that sports this look)

Raiders at Chiefs
This is a red flag game for the Raiders in every way. Carr has never won in Kansas City and he does not play well in the cold. To make matter worse, Andy Reid does not lose coming off a bye week. His teams are always ready. Add in it is a home game, that is like 3 strikes right there. Let’s take it a step further, WR Hill is playing which is not good for the Raiders but great for the Chiefs.

The Raiders have a great run game and are pissed after being destroyed by the Jets. That is the Chiefs weakest link. The Chiefs are well aware and are going to be ready for this. They also know that the Raiders have a huge issue with speed receivers which they have plenty of. This is going to be a the game that defines the division.

My Prediction: Chiefs 42 Raiders 17

Fantasy Player of the Game: Tyreek Hill is coming back and with his speed, the Raiders are in trouble. This guy is a nightmare for most teams but even worse for a bad secondary.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and your families!

The OG, AKA The Old Fart

AFCW Week 11 Preview

What a wild week, week 10 was. Another game winning drive for Derek Carr, who has the most game winning drives since entering the league in 2014. We had Philip “Givers” making an appearance. And the Chiefs getting ran through like a San Francisco homeless hooker. But hey, we’re not here to prosecute ones “quality of life”, so let’s get to some football.

Broncos at Vikings:

The Broncos, fresh off a bye week, travel into the Mall of America to take on the 7-3 Vikings. I wonder if Dude will be at the game? Actually, I don’t. Anyway, as we all know by now, the Vikings are good. I believe I saw a stat that has them as a top 5 offense over the last 5 weeks, while the Broncos have been able to maintain one of the league’s better defenses.

Can this Brandon Allen guy do it again? He wasn’t asked to do much with only 20 attempts vs the Browns, but he made the most of them with 190 yards and 2 TD’s. Unfortunately for Allen, the Vikings defense poses a much greater threat as they’ll take away the run game and force the inexperienced QB to beat them. And I don’t see that going well for Denver.

My predicktion: Vikings 27, Broncos 13

Fantasy player of the game: I’ve said his name here before, and I’ll say it again, Alexander Mattison. He’s getting a decent workload for a b/u RB and could see some garbage time work this week. With some fantasy relevant teams on a bye, plug him in if you need a body at RB.

Bengals at Raiders:

The last of their 3 game homestand, the Raiders look to keep the momentum rolling against the league’s worst team… the 0-9 Bengals. Let’s hope the team comes out with just as much fire as they did on TNF vs. the Chargers because a well decided victory is exactly what the team, moreso the fans, need at this point in the season.

The Bengals are pretty much the worst at everything. Offensively, they’ve given up by benching Dalton for Ryan Finley. Defensively, they give up the most yards/game, most notably on the ground with 173/game. Well above the next worst team. The Raiders need to take advantage of that and should use Jacobs and Washington in heavy doses. Pound the rock effectively and come away with a comfortable victory. However, I’ve been a fan long enough to know not to put any amount of failure past the Raiders. So we’ll see.

My predicktion: Raiders 32, Bengals 17

Fantasy player of the game: Jacobs is a no brainer. He should dominate this matchup, but I think Tyrell Williams gets back on track too with a TD.

Chiefs at Chargers in Mexico City on MNF:

The marquee game of week 11 in the AFCW. The Chargers, trying to keep their season alive, and the Chiefs, 1-3 in Mahomes’ last 4 starts, head into the shithole otherwise known as Mexico City for Monday Night Football.

This is a good matchup. Quietly, the Chargers defense has been playing solid football since the return of Melvin Ingram. Looking at those last 3 games, they’re holding opposing offenses to fewer than 20 points (Rivers cost the defense 10 pts vs. the Raiders). And on the other side of the ball, we’re just starting to see the other Melvin – Gordon – get his legs back and it couldn’t come at a better time than against a soft Chiefs defense. Run, Melvin, run.

For the Chiefs, it starts with Mahomes. He needs to be the mobile Mahomes of old as Bosa and Ingram will be on his doorstep with every drop back. Will the knee hold up? Defensively, Frank Clark has to be licking his chops right now after watching what Clelin Ferrell was able to do to that Chargers OL, but none of that will matter if they can’t stop the run. Although that’s if the Chargers aren’t dumb enough to abandon the run again like they did last week. This one will be close.

My predicktion: Chiefs 24, Chargers 20

Fantasy player of the game: Melvin Gordon is a top 5 RB play this week, and keep an eye on the KC backfield. If they hold McCoy out again, fire up Damien Williams.

Yours truly,


AFCW Week 10 Preview

Week 10 Preview

After a week 9 sweep by the AFC West, the Division moved to within one game of a 500 record (17-18). With that said, we still suck. We have a HUGE prime-time game between the 2nd and 3rd place teams. Let’s get this party started!

Raiders vs Chargers Go Chargers!
The Chargers smashed the Packers at home with a smothering defense and balanced offense. The Chargers put up 442 yards on offense. 3 sacks and 6 tackles for loss on defense. It was a very complete game for them. Phillip Rivers is leading the league in passing yards and having all of his weapons at his disposal makes this offense scary. Go Chargers!

The Raiders won a shoot out with the Lions with the defense making the play to win the game. The offense put up 460 yards and the defense put up 2 sacks and 4 tackles for loss. The offensive line is sick and the so is Josh Jacobs. Derek Carr is leading the league in completion percentage.

This game is in prime-time in Oakland and is going to be a flat out slobber-knocker! At this point, the offenses are about even but the Chargers have an advantage when it comes to the defenses. This will be must see TV.

JMC’s Prediction: Chargers 21 Raiders 24

Fantasy Player of the Game: This will be all about TE Hunter Henry and RB Josh Jacobs. I expect both of them to have huge games.

Chiefs vs Titans
The Chiefs beat a very game Vikings team with a last second field goal. They put up 422 yards of offense and a very solid defensive showing. There is a possibility that QB Mahomes returns to the starting role. If he does the offensive line will have to play better as they surrendered 5 sack to the Vikings.

The Titans lost to the Panthers by ten points but put up 452 yards of offense. They also had 3 turnovers. This team is a true Jekyll and Hyde. One week they are great and the next they SUCK!

This game is going to be close or a flat out ass whooping and it all depends on which Titans team shows up. Big Andy will have his team up for this game.

JMC’s Prediction: Chiefs 31 Titans 17

Fantasy Player of the Game: WR Tyreek Hill will light the Titans up! This is going to be a “Showtime” game for him so enjoy!

Denver is on a Bye Week
Denver has their bye week and look to get healthy and prepare for the second half of the season. Enjoy the week off Bronchoes!

At ease Ladies! Enjoy the games.

Love always,


AFCW Week 9 Preview

Heading into week 9, let’s just call a spade a spade. The AFCW is not a good division right now. We’ve been dominated by the NFCN (3-6), and the AFCS (3-7) We suck… Welp, now that that’s out of the way, let’s take a look at this coming week.

Vikings at Chiefs:

The Vikings head into Methville, USA at 6-2 and 2nd in the NFCN. They’re a good football team with some firepower offensively: Cook, Diggs, and Thielen. Can the Chiefs defense slow them down? I hope not. Will we see the return of Patrick Mahomes this week? It’s been 2 weeks since his knee injury, and reports out of KC last week said he looked good in his limited practice time. So we’re going to assume he plays.

Looking at this matchup, you have the league’s leading rusher in Dalvin Cook vs. the league’s 3rd worst run defense. I wonder what the Vikings will try to do? Getting Chris Jones back this week could be a huge boost in containing Cook for KC, but they’ll probably be without Frank Clark again. Offensively for the Chiefs, it’s obvious, they go as Mahomes goes. They still can’t run the ball for shit, so in order to win this game, not only will they need Mahomes back, but need him at close to 100%. And I’m not sure we’re there yet. He struggled with that ankle injury earlier this year, so I can’t imagine he’s back to his MVP caliber self 2 weeks removed from his knee cap being on the side of his leg.

My predicktion: Vikings 27, Chiefs 24

Fantasy Player of the Game: All the obvious plays here, including Cousins, but if you’re in need of a deep bye week fill in at RB, Alexander Mattison could have a decent workload behind Cook as the Vikings look to pound the ball.

Lions at Raiders:

Tough loss last week for the Raiders. Not only did they have the lead for the majority of the game, but losing to the Texans puts them in a big hole for a possible WC spot. But here they are at a respectable 3-4 having just finished the most brutal road schedule the NFL has ever seen, and finally back at home for a 3-game stand starting with Axel Foley’s Detroit Lions. The Lions are a pretty good team. Like the Raiders, they sit at 3-4, so we’re looking at a fairly even matchup here.

The challenge for the Raiders will be stopping Stafford and his trio of WR’s: Golladay, Jones Jr., and Amendola. Fortunately for the Raiders, Stafford can’t beat them with his legs like Watson did after O’Brien realized all he had to do was roll him out to his right and the Raiders were too fucking stupid to adjust. Anyway, offensively for the Raiders they should be able to attack one of the league’s worst defenses. Detroit is one of 2 teams who give up more passing yards than Oakland and are one of the worst against the run as well. I’m thinking a good ol’ fashioned shoot out here.

My predicktion: Raiders 31, Lions 27

Fantasy Player of the Game: Both QB’s. Carr and Stafford have favorable matchups vs. 2 of the leagues worst at defending the pass. Amendola a solid PPR play as we saw the Raiders inability to cover the middle of the field vs. the Texans.

Browns at Broncos:

The tanks keep rolling along in Denver with Joe Flacco’s season now all but over with an apparent neck injury. He was a below average QB anyway. So in comes Brandon Allen (who tha fook is that guy?) to keep the seat warm, or cold, for however long it takes Drew Lock to get ready to play. This is the 6th starting QB since PFM retired, Lock will be the 7th. It’s safe to say that Elway has no fucking clue what he’s doing after having a SB winning team fall in his lap. His drafts are terrible, coaching decisions haven’t been any better, but can/will the Bowlen’s (or whoever is making that decision) fire every Bronco fans hero?

Oddly enough, the Browns have been so bad, that the Broncos actually have a good chance of winning this game. And here’s why: Chris Harris. He’s shed the slot CB label and become the best CB in the league. Period. He shuts down your FFB teams WR1. Every. Fucking. Week. Also, the Broncos are still pretty good running the ball, which is every no name starting QB’s best friend. The last thing Denver wants to do here is drop back to pass more than 15 times and not all because of Allen at QB, but because of Bolles vs. Myles Garrett. Yikes. As much as I want to predickt a Broncos win, I just have no fucking clue what we’re going to get from Brandon Allen and why the Browns don’t just stack the box on every down and force whoever the fuck that guy is to beat them.

My predicktion:  Browns 14, Broncos 13

Fantasy Player of the Game: Chubb is an obvious play, but if you’re streaming defenses like me, and you should be because only an idiot drafts a D/ST before the 2nd to last round, I like both here in what should be a low scoring game.

Chargers at Packers in LA:

Once again, this might as well be an away game for the Chargers. They’ll be “home”, but that place will be packed with dumbass Mid Westerners wearing a fake block of cheese on their head. For all the shit Raiders fans get for their costumes, it doesn’t get any fucking dumber than that. Minus that Broncos fan dressed as a pom pom of course. Anyway, this will be the last of the Packers AFCW schedule, and so far they’ve dominated with a 3-0 record. Aaron Rodgers is back in the MVP discussion and has his Packers leading the NFCN once again. The Chargers on the other hand, did just beat the Bears in Chicago, but it took a 42-yard FG miss at the buzzer. Not impressed.

So how do the Chargers go about beating a 7-1 team? For one, they’re going to have to be successful running the ball, which is where the Packers defense is most vulnerable. The problem here is, the Chargers can’t run the ball. Behind one of the league’s worst OL’s, they average 5th lowest rushing yards/game and a paltry 3.5 ypc. That’s not good. And since his triumphant return, Melvin Gordon averages 2.5 ypc. That’s even worse. While Rivers is known for doing just enough to keep the Chargers competitive in just about every game, I think they’re just simply over-matched in this one.

My predicktion: Packers 27, Chargers 17

Fantasy Player of the Game: Rodgers has been spreading the wealth without Adams making picking one of his WR’s a nightmare, but I do like his RB’s here. Jones a must play, and Williams has been sneaky good too. 4 TD’s in their last 3 games, and averaging over 4 targets/game in that span as well. Giddy up.

Good luck, dickheads.



Rest in Peace Willie

AFCW Week 8 Preview

What a fucking week, week 7 was for the AFCW. Patty Mahomes had to have his knee popped back in place, the Broncos were outscored 30 to -1 after their opening possession, Rodgers is still throwing TD’s on the Raiders, and the Chargers Charger’d their way to another L. Let’s all just pretend that didn’t happen, shall we? Moving on to week 8 for what looks like another good one…

Chargers at Bears:

The schedule doesn’t lighten up any for the Chargers this week as they head into Chicago to face the monsters of the midway. Granted, the Bears offense is struggling as expected and Teddy Bridgewater just hung, wait can we say hung? Teddy Bridgewater just put 36 on that vaunted defense without Alvin Kamara – that’s better. So they aren’t looking too great either. It’s now or never for the Chargers.

Without a single starting caliber offensive lineman on the roster, the Chargers are going to struggle. Khalil Mack is going to feast, and unlike last week, the Chicago defense is going to live up to its hype. Defensively, the Chargers are going to have to force Trubisky to beat them. Stop the run, and make that sorry son of a bitch air it out. That’s the only way to win this one.

My predicktion: Bears 20, Chargers 17

Fantasy player of the game: He hasn’t been great, but Nagy has pointed out the importance of getting rookie Montgomery going. I think he does and finishes over 100 total yards and a TD.

Broncos at Colts:

WTF is that? Is that an Earthquake in Denver? No, it’s the sound of tanks rolling in. These next 5 days are going to tell us a lot about the future of the Denver Broncos. Is Elway going to steamroll his roster for picks, or try to hang on to guys like CHJr even though they are surely to leave in FA? Hey, maybe Denver fans will get lucky and the tanks will roll over Elway too…

The Broncos are the last of the AFCW teams to face the Colts, so it’s been well documented already that they’re a solid team, who now leads the AFCS and are healthier than they’ve been in weeks. Don’t really see any advantageous matchups for the Broncos here, but maybe they’ll care enough to play for the shreds of dignity that Elway has yet to take. But I don’t think so.

My predicktion: Colts 27, Broncos 10

Fantasy player of the game: Keep riding the Sutton train. He’s now in the borderline WR1 discussion without sharing the targets with Sanders.

Raiders at Texans:

Will the real Raiders please stand up? No, not you assholes from last week, you can sit the fuck back down. We’ve seen the Texans in here before. They’re 2-0 so far in the season series vs. the AFCW. So we’re not in for any surprises. They did just lose Will Fuller, which is good news for a secondary who couldn’t cover me. Random tidbit for the game, Raiders traded its starting CB to the Texans in exchange for a 3rd round pick. Now Gruden gets his chance to pick on Conley’s sorry ass for once.

HOU’s OL isn’t nearly as good as GB’s, so the Raiders should be able to get some sort of pressure on Watson this week. That will be key as he and Hopkins will dismantle any secondary, let alone the Raiders, with time to throw. Offensively, the Raiders could be getting Tyrell Williams back to attack a defense that’s given up the 4th most yards to QB’s this season. If Carr can cut out the RZ TO’s, the Raiders will be in this one.

My predicktion: Texans 27, Raiders 24

Fantasy player of the game: Flip a coin between Kenny Stills and Keke Coutee. One of them, or both, will run right past the Raiders secondary for a long TD.

Packers at Chiefs:

It’s hard for me to believe the Chiefs are really that fucking stupid. They can’t possibly start their franchise QB/savior 10 days post dislocating his kneecap. That’s insane. The rest of us can only hope that they’d be dumb enough to mortgage their future for a regular season game. We obviously don’t wish injury on anyone other than the child beater, but stupidity by Andy Reid and the Chiefs organization is always welcome.

Anyway, the Packers are getting the Chiefs at the exact right time. I really don’t think Mahomes will play, and the Packers should see the return of Davante Adams to give Rodgers his full arsenal of weaponry. The Chiefs on the other hand will most likely be playing with Matt Moore at QB, and he won’t have any semblance of a running game to support him as the Chiefs are in the bottom quarter of the league in rushing. Minus Mahomes, this should be an easy win for the 6-1 Packers.

My predicktion: Packers 31, Chiefs 20

Fantasy player of the game: Aaron Jones. KC gives up the 4th most yards to RB’s. He’s a must start.

Look at this little bitch. Garrett Bolles should be proud. “My God, my knee! Can I play this week coach?”

*I hate predickting an 0-4 week with the AFCW, but here we are.

Yours truly,


AFCW Week 7 Preview

AFCW Week 7 Preview

Week 6 was another crazy week of football. The Chiefs’ run defense was horrible and the Texans took advantage of that in Kansas City. The Broncos’ defense was flat out nasty as they got their 2nd win of the season against the Titans. The Steelers defense flat out punched the Chargers in the mouth and won a game in primetime that was more of a home game than a road game. The Raiders had their bye week which was needed after quite a bit of travel. Let’s look at week 7 and the match ups.

Chiefs vs Broncos
The Chiefs travel to Mile High after suffereing back to back loses at home. Their run defense has been flat out HORRIBLE. Mahomes has been dealing with an ankle injury and it has affected his scrambling ability and throwing accuracy. Tyreek Hill returned and scored twice last week. Having him back should help the passing game.

The Broncos defense posted a shut out at home against the Titans last week. When you post 7 sacks, 3 interceptions and 11 tackles for loss, you are playing well. Their offense did not do much but they did not lose the game either. They will have to run the ball well this week if they want to win.

Fantasy Player of the Game: This is a hard one. Mahomes could light it up but the Broncos running back tandum of Lindsay and Freeman could have a huge game. I am going with the Broncos running game at home.

My Prediction: Broncos 23 Chiefs 20 (OT)

Chargers vs Titans
The Chargers go to the Titans in a almost must win game. They get OT Russell Okung back and they need him. Against the Steelers last week the rushed 14 times for 32 yards. That will not cut it. Rivers lead a second half comeback only to throw a late interception that cost his team the game. He will have to take care of the ball.

The Titans were shut out by Denver last week and changed quaterbacks. Tannehill will get the start and I see them trying to lean on their run game to help him out.

Fantasy Player of the Game: This is easy, Hunter Henry is the choice. He is a match-up nightmare. I see another big game for him.

My Prediction: Chargers 24 Titans 17

Raiders vs Packers
The Raiders are coming off their bye week. They will be without their top receiver again. They traded for Zay Jones but I don’t know how much he will play. They will need to run the ball and keep it away from the Packers. They get Gabe Jackson AKA Big Smooth back which will help in the run and pass game.

The Packers are coming off a home win against the Lions. The officiating was great for the Packers and more than likely cost the Lions the game. They ran the ball well and have Aaron Rodgers. He is playing quite well right now.

Fantasy Player of the Game: With the return of Big Smooth, the Raiders will run the ball and a lot. Josh Jacobs should have a big game.

My Prediction: Packers 28 Raiders 20

Have a great football weekend!

AFCW Week 3 Preview

Ravens at Chiefs:

In what is expected to be the highest point total of the week, the undefeated Ravens head into the meth capital of the world to take on the undefeated Chiefs. Vegas has the point total for this game at 52, so we should be in for a shootout.

With no child beater since early in week 1, the Chiefs offense hasn’t skipped a beat and I don’t see that changing this week. In what will be their toughest test of the season so far, I don’t see them struggling to put points on the board and ultimately come away victorious. BAL with LJ, and Hollywood can hang in to keep it somewhat close with a late score.

My predicktion – KC 32, BAL 27

Raiders at Vikings:

After a big MNF victory vs. the Broncos in week 1, the Raiders laid a fat fucking egg week 2 vs. the Chiefs. So what team will we see this week on the road vs. a decent Vikings squad? Probably the team they are, which is below average at best.

The Raiders are in trouble here. Trent Brown is banged up and hasn’t practiced all week. The significance of that is that his backup, Brandon Parker, is a big piece of shit. Offensively, Carr and the Raiders are going to struggle, while his counterpart finally opens up that passing attack with Diggs and Thielen, not to mention Cooks on the ground, and it’s just a recipe for disaster for the Raiders. Sorry folks, but I just don’t feel good about this one.

My predicktion – MIN 31, OAK 17

Broncos at Packers:

Not looking good so far for the Broncos. 0-2 and heading into GB to face Rodgers. We all expected a good Broncos defense this year led by new HC Vic Fangio, but haven’t seen that so far. Vonn and Chubb combine for 0 sacks and that’s just flat fucking unacceptable.

GB’s defense looks improved and DEN’s offense isn’t, to say the least. On the other side of the ball, expect shadow coverage from Harris on Adams, but Rodgers will just take advantage of the matchups on the other side of the field. He’s too good. Here’s to Manny Sanders tho. WTF did he take to heal so damn quickly?

My predicktion – GB 24, DEN 10

Texans “at” Chargers:

The Chargers currently look like one of the more overrated teams heading into the season. Eeked out a W vs. a Luck-less Colts in week 1 and lose on the road to the Lions in week 2. Now face a tough Texans team at “home” for week 3, can they regain their 2018 form?

No. JJ Watt has a huge mismatch with whoever the shitty tackle is infront of him, which will limit Rivers ability to make his progressions that he’s so damn good at. On the other side of the ball, look for Watson and Hopkins to continue to dominate, and they’ve been surprisingly productive on the ground too. I do think this one is close and will come down to the final whistle.

My predicktion – HOU 21, LAC 17

With all of my heart,
