What a time Frank Ragnow Jersey for mayhem.Who do you trust? Hubba hubba, money money money. In truth, precious little left is there to trust in this rotten league of miscreants and savage half-death. Take what you can get because the boss isnt going to do you right.Vontae Davis had it all proper. Was it professional to walk off in the middle of his job? Hell no. But dont think for a second that such means its not right. No sir, in this league the boss can fire you at any point, yank you off the bus and leave you on the side of the road because some dork with a spreadsheet got randy about compensatory picks. Like every small business in a right-to-work state, the boss is a psycho here. The only right move is to give him the same courtesy back. 隆Adios, muchachos!But were missing the main spin of the past week. The Steelers are what every football team should aspire to be. Lauded for rusted glories and dysfunctional beyond belief. If your goal is win, win, do it now, then I suppose they wont be much fun, but the circus doesnt rely on steely determination and grit. No sir, the clowns are out and everyones gotta get paid. The only difference between the skinflints in Pennsylvania and the ones down in southern Ohio is a matter of forgotten hardware.Wed be remiss if we couldnt try to make some money. I missed last week and didnt get the picks about due to a bad case of blues and vision quests. I dont know what the record is, so like any good gambling scum Ill just say Im perfect. You cant refute me and if you do Ill tell you where you can send the check.Tampa Bay +1 vs. PittsburghThe sooner the league puts Jameis Winston out to slum it in the XFL the better. I think with all the wildebeest energy coursing through central Florida right now its probably the Bucs come back down to earth, but Ill ride the hot hand against the bu cu mal energy sticking on this Steelers team. Also http://www.authenticsdetroitlions.com/cheap-tavon-wilson-jersey , home dog.Carolina -3 vs CincinnatiQuietly the Bengals have become one of the best teams in the AFC for this early season. Improbable and infuriating. That said, deserve has nothing to do with nothing. Consider the temporary loss of Joe Mixon and the annihilation that comes for all winning streaks in this league. Fading Cincinnati is the appropriate measure.Green Bay -3 @ WashingtonConversely, the football club with a racist moniker from Washington is quietly one of the worst teams in the league, buoyed only by feasting on a pathetic Arizona squad a while back. The Packers will get their just desserts soontheres only so many holes Aaron Rodgers can claw out of while jumping around on his one good legbut Washington wont be that.Detroit vs. New England UNDER 52The Patriots are going to annihilate this team. Scorch the earth, burn and salt whatever sprout Patricia could have represented. Abandon hope and get out of here. Still, this is a primetime game, which is a textbook case of ugly, suffocating football.New York +3 @ ClevelandThese ads running for Thursday Night Football are an affront to God. Nobody is looking at the schedule for these games and becoming marvelously impressed. Case in point. Cleveland keeps getting achingly close to a victory and unlocking those beer cases, and hell with it, but Ill happily fade them on a short week.Miami -3 vs OaklandOakland isnt a real place.Los Angeles +7 @ Los AngelesLos Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles Los Angeles.All the restKansas City -6.5 vs. San FranciscoArizona vs. Chicago UNDER 38Dallas +1.5 @ SeattleHouston -6 vs. New YorkMinnesota vs. Buffalo OVER 41Baltimore vs. Denver UNDER 44Indianapolis +6.5 @ PhiladelphiaNew Orleans +3 @ AtlantaThe Detroit Lions are already facing a must-win game vs. the Packers The Detroit Lions are in a must-win situation. I feel like this is something Ive said before this early in the season. Actually it is. In 2016, I wrote about why the Lions needed to beat the Packers early in the year. Now in 2018, the feeling is exactly the same. Last weekend was a crucial weekend for the Lions. They entered the week at 1-2 with the need to get to .500. They also needed all of their NFC North counterpoints to take losses as well. For a moment it looked as thought the Lions might get that second win of the year until Jarrad Davis found himself covering Ezekiel Elliott down the field for some reason. The Lions dropped to 1-3 before the excitement from Golden Tates second touchdown could wore off. To make matters worse, the Packers and Bears both walked away with big wins. The Rams did do the Lions a favor with the Vikings, though. Adjust your Christmas cards accordingly. So after a tumultuous weekend http://www.authenticsdetroitlions.com/cheap-glover-quin-jersey , the Lions find themselves with the worst record in the division. Worse yet, if the season ended today, the Lions would have the second pick in the draft. Believe it or not, things could get much worse from here. The deck is stacked against the Lions for the rest of the season. Starting at 1-3 is not good. But how bad is it? Since 1990, only 24 teams have started 1-3 and went on to make the playoffs. The last team to do it was actually the 2016 Lions. So the Lions have experience in doing this sort of thing already. If that werent bad enough, the Lions have still yet to play against any of their division rivals and still have two tough NFC opponents in the Panthers and the Rams left to play. Did I mention how stacked this deck was? Heres what the Lions have going for them. They have beaten the Bears a ton over the years. That may not mean anything now because their defense is tougher than ever, but hey, who knows right? The Lions have also played quite well against the Packers and Vikings in recent years. Both teams havent done anything spectacular this year. The Vikings look to be taking a step back despite everyone thinking they would be the team to beat in the division. Of course, the other thing in the Lions favor is that this division constantly changes. Every single time we think we have a grasp on what things are going to look like at the end of the season, the entire layout changes three times before we get there. I can completely see that happening again. As far as outside the division, the Lions are going to get some help on their schedule soon. If there was a time to expect a run of wins, regardless of if it helps or not, its right after the bye. The Lions will take on the Dolphins, who are the kings of looking better than they are right now Youth Ricky Wagner Jersey , a bad Seahawks team, and then the Vikings. The Lions could potentially get themselves to 5-3 or at least 4-4 by the time they go on the crazy run of Bears, Panthers, Bears and Rams. If the Lions make that initial run, those next four games will be the buzzsaw that will determine Detroits fate.So with all of this in mind, we return to our first point. The Lions are in a must-win situation this weekend against the Green Bay Packers, and for multiple reasons. The first is obvious: The Lions cant afford another loss. Digging yourself out of a 1-3 hole has to be easier than a 1-4 hole, right? At least in the 1-3 hole you might have half of a broken shovel. At 1-4 youre crawling out with your hands. At 1-5 youre buried in the hole forever. The other reason is also obvious: The Packers are a division foe. The season may be over to most people, but theres still a chance for the Lions to make some noise. We mentioned that the division is ever changing as the season goes on. Well if youre the Lions, you have to go out there and get these division wins just in case you do go on some sort of unprecedented run. Theyll come in handy later. Plus, the chance to knock one of these teams down to your level is an opportunity you have to capture. The last reason is because the schedule for the other division teams really helps the Lions in this upcoming chunk. For example, on the way to the Lions, the Bears have to play in Miami, then welcome the Patriotsa team they havent beaten in 18 yearsthen round it out withthe Bills and Jets. Thats probably two gimmes for them http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-t.j.-lang-jersey , but, hey, those other two games are good. In route to the Lions game with the Vikings, the team from Minnesota will have to play in Philadelphia and take on the high scoring Saints offense. They do get the gimmes against the Jets and the Cardinals, though. Lastly, after the Lions play the Packers on Sunday, Green Bay plays the 49ers, then heads to Los Angeles to play the Rams and then Plays the Patriots on the road the next week. The Packers have it harder than anyone in the coming weeks. So. If things work out the way you hope they will, heres what the NFC North standings could realistically look like going into the Lions Week 10 meeting with the Bears. Bears: 5-3Lions 5-3Vikings 3-4-1Packers 3-4-1A lot would have to go right there, but if all that stuff does go right, the Lions are somehow playing the Bears for ownership of the division in Week 10. Just as the prophets have foretold they would. None of this means anything if the Lions dont win this weekend. We are standing on the precipice of the Lions either turning the season around or searching for the best mock drafts this time of year. I dont know if the Lions can do it or not. I have all the faith in the world in their 11th ranked offense right now. I have zero faith in their defense though. This is all going to take a lot of wishful thinking. Fortunately Im the king of wishful thinking.
