I haven’t had a lot of time to write as of late. However, I am trying to make a come back. Baby steps though. So here comes the return of three things to watch in week 12.
1. The Giants aren’t terrible: I have to give it to Eli and this offense. They have put together tow back to back really solid offensive performances. When you have talent like Sterling Sheppard and Evan Engram emerging plus the offensive rookie of the year in Saqoun Barkley you should be able to improve. Eli’s arm hasn’t looked terrible the past two weeks. The Eagles are a heavily battered team in the secondary. I would expect the Giants, whose biggest problem at the moment is defense to come away with a nice win against Philly this week.
2. Baker Mayfield is due for another huge day: The Bengals have allowed 500 yards in there last four games and I don’t see that trend ending against the Browns. Who are now quietly protecting Baker Mayfield much better than they had in October. Freddy Kitchens is putting together an interesting offense and I would lump him in with coaching candidates for this team. The Bengals get AJ Green back and hopefully that rejuvenates what has been a stale offense for the last two months. I think the Browns take this one though!
3. The Seahawks will stay hot against Carolina: The Panthers defense has been susceptible to the run over the past month and in comes one of the best running teams in the league in the Seattle Seahawks. Though it would be hard to see the Panthers losing three in the row I have lost a lot of confidence in this team over the past two weeks. The Seahawks on the other hand are suddenly putting the ball back in Russel Wilsons hands. This should be a good close game but I got the Seahawks!
Thanks for reading everyone see you next week!
