Greetings kiddies and welcome to another spook-tacular edition of DLT's Walking Deadlocks. While the season has been frightful for some fanbases (fans of the London Jaguars and Tampa Bay Bucs, I'm stalking...excuse me, talking to you).
Okay...I can't do it. I can't write crypt keeper voice this entire article.
Last week I rebounded well, going 11-2. Would have been 12-1 if Dallas could hold a dang lead.
But hey, it's Halloween, I'm high on candycorn and Reese's cups so lets get cracking on Week 9!
Last Week: 11-2 85% Upset Specials: 1-1 50%
Season: 79-43 65% Upset Specials: 6-8 43%
Upset Special #1 Redskins 27, Chargers 16 - West coast to East coast make this one particularly scary for the Chargers. Equally scary? Washington's backup name if the league forces them to change their name. The Bravehearts? Terrifying.
Panthers 27, Falcons 13 - Atlanta expected a Super Bowl run. Little did they know the Panthers would have a better shot. But hey, Mike Smith, here's a Reese's Cup for your troubles. Trick, apparently.
