Nobody believes in the Texans. Us either. We like the remaining three games to be close, being eternal optimists, but like both home teams to win on Sunday. While we both like Seattle to cover, Dave still likes Atlanta to win. Still can’t tell if he’s being honest or goat mouthing the Falcons. Plus: Chopper, and the Chargers give San Diego the final kiss off.
Can’t lie: Dave got the sniffles pretty good about halfway through and it’s not that easy to listen to. Wild Card Picks: Raiders & Lions to cover. Seattle & maybe Raiders for the win. Pittsburgh all day and strong lean towards Giants against the spread. Happy New Year, y’all!
Pod opens with a lament for the Chargers, who must have goat-mouthed themselves. A deep dive on the end of the Ryan (Rex & Rob) era in Buffalo, Chopper, and a concerted attempt to navigate the furious reverse line movement you only see at the end of the regular season. Happy New Year!
As the regular season wraps up, value reappears. The challenge: trying to figure out if any teams have already started to mail it in. Like, for example, the Jets. Or the Browns. On the other hand, lots of presents for the Bears and Texans, a little for the Vikings. Chopper’s still upset.
