Well, it was bound to happen. Last week was my first losing week of the season. 6-8 isn't terrible (and yes, I'm counting the Green Bay-Minnesota tie as a loss - I didn't predict a tie), I've had worse weeks - but it's definitely not where I want to be as a prognosticator.
But hey, now isn't the time to worry about what we didn't achieve - its Thanksgiving and we have a ton to be thankful for.
I'm alive, I'm relatively healthy, my lovely wife still puts up with my b.s. and we have a great home. I'm still employed, still writing, Star Mage impacts all comic book stores in April and hey, the Bucs have won three straight.
Let's see what NFL teams have to be thankful for.
Last Week: 6-8 43% Upset Specials: 1-1 50%
Season: 113-62 65% Upset Specials: 14-9 61%
Ravens 20, Steelers 13 - The Ravens are thankful they can look at their shiny Super Bowl rings for at least another couple months. The Steelers are thankful they played some weak sisters to get on a roll.
Colts 30, Titans 13 - The Colts are thankful they had a big enough lead in the division their slump isn't threatening their playoff position. The Flaming Thumbtacks are Thankful that Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't terrible.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
