Welp, here it is folks - yet another NFL season has past us by. It goes by so quickly doesn't? A symphony of clashing pads (just don't go high), thrilling plays and impossible comebacks. This season may end with a 9-7 team in the playoffs and an 11-5 team out in the NFC.
Unlike my beloved Buccaneers, I'm finishing the season strong. Last week I had a season's best 14-2 record with only Detroit and Kansas City letting me down. I was 2-0 once more in my upset specials as well and it's been a surprisingly good year in that department.
So for one last time in 2013 - let's see what the deadlocks have for us.
Last Week: 14-2 88% Upset Specials: 2-0 100%
Season: 157-82 66% Upset Specials: 18-13 58%
Upset Special: Falcons 20, Panthers 10 - Surprise, I know - but I have a feeling the kitties are feeling pretty good about themselves right now. The Falcons may not be the team we thought but they can still beat someone on their home turf - especially if its a rival that knocks them out of a division championship.
Titans 20, Texans 13 - Could this be the last go for Mike Munchak? At least I know his name now (and yes, I know he's a hall-of-famer and what not - he's an offensive lineman - who knows their names unless they have MRSA?)
Packers 30, Bears 20 - Of course Discount Doublecheck is back to beat the Bears. Did you expect anything else? Nice job Lovie's replacement Marc Trestman. You ended up in the same spot with less victories.
Saints 40, Buccaneers 10 - Can the Bucs pull off the upset? Sorry Arizona. No. I honestly can't believe Greg Schiano couldn't manage MORE than 4 wins with this football team.
Happy New Year everyone, see you in 2014!
