NFL: Dolphins at Bills

-6 Bills come into Thursday night’s home contest with the 4-5 Dolphins giving up an NFL-worst 31.7 points per game. All three of their wins have come against low-scoring teams (Browns, Chiefs and Cardinals). In fact, in their six losses the Bills have given up almost 40 points per game. Ouch!

On the flip side, their offense featuring Fred Jackson, CJ Spiller and Ryan Fitzpatrick, has been tough to stop. Last week, in their best performance of the season (including any of their wins), the Bills took the Patriots down to the wire before losing in Foxboro. Continued »

NFL: Chiefs at Steelers

Results: The Chiefs made this the game nobody expected, pushing the Steelers to overtime — and in Steeler Town no less — but Pittsburgh gets the win.

Hey, Kansas City Chiefs. Look on the bright side. The Royals almost got to .500 this season and though you will not, sometimes it’s harder to be almost good instead of just bad. At least you know you can do better next year. Even the Royals don’t know that. Monday night the 1-7 Chiefs head to Steeler Town to take their punishment in a featured national game. But more good news, nobody is going to watch. The NBA, now in it second full week is going to own monday night eyes. And what a train wreck this game is going to be. Matt Cassel can pass up a storm but, can he do it with accuracy? His 11 interceptions and QB rating of 68.9 don’t say so. And the defense is allowing 30 points on average and 350 yards. The Steelers on the other hand are entering cruise control having won their last 3. But will they drive 55 and just get the win safe and sound or put the pedal to the metal?

NFL Extravaganza 9!

Now this is refreshing. The NFL and probably all pro sports are loaded with nutty antics of all kinds. Saying you’re a vegan doesn’t even hit the radar on nutty when it comes to the NFL. That’s junior achiever stuff. So how great is this quote from Arian Foster after being pressed on the subject, “”Nothing’s going to happen to me. I just wanted a piece of chicken. It wasn’t like temptation. I felt like I could use one.”  Do you feel that fresh air? Anyways, hope you played NCAA Extravaganza 11 but, college results are mostly a crap-shoot, so if you want to win this week’s B3TZ Sports game, it’s good to cover yourself. Here are some proper Pro b3tz for you. Yes the B3TZ Sports NFL Sunday Extravaganza is here. And if you don’t see a b3tz you want, comment on it and I will check back later and put it up if I can.

NFL: Eagles at Saints

Is anyone excited to watch this game? It seems more like turning to look at a car wreck. The Eagles should be kicking butt and so should the Saints but neither are. Michael Vick has been put on the hook for Philadelphia’s troubles and the Saints, well hell, with all the coaching suspensions they’re lucky to be where they are. Boy and there are some deep parallels here too. Continued »

NFL Extravaganza 8!

The good news is that the Tim Tebow news cycle is so worn out that NFL.com is now covering his girl friend list. Sad. I said last week, just LET THE MAN PLAY so we can all make a decision on this once and for all. Fortunately we can watch OTHER GAMES this Sunday like the throwback uniform rookie quarterback game (Why NFL? WHY!!!???). Hope you played NCAA Extravaganza 10 but, college results are mostly a crap-shoot, so if you want to win this week’s B3TZ Sports game, it’s good to cover yourself. Here are some proper Pro b3tz for you. Yes the B3TZ Sports NFL Sunday Extravaganza SIX is here. And if you don’t see a b3tz you want, comment on it and I will check back later and put it up if I can.

NFL: Chiefs at Chargers

Results: Chargers came to play and took apart the Chiefs.

[ed note: A hearty and formal welcome to Hunter James, who has joined B3TZ Sports as a regular contributor. We’re stoked to have him.] Thursday night in San Diego two of the NFL’s most disappointing teams square off in what promises to be one of the least anticipated prime-time matchups so far this season. Here’s the thing though: despite all the talk of how the Chargers have underachieved, and the building crescendo of voices calling for Norv Turner’s head, the Chargers still sit just one game out of first in the AFC West. After a couple of tough losses to the Saints and Broncos, most thought the Chargers were due for a bounce-back game against the Browns. So what happened? I have no idea, other than to think they were still in shock from their historic Monday night collapse against the Broncos the week before. So how about this week? Even though it’s a division opponent (AFC West games are usually close no matter who’s playing), and even though the Chiefs might get a spark from having Matt Cassel back in the saddle, expect the Chargers to bounce back and even their season record at 4-4.

NFL: 49ers at Cardinals — Monday Night Football

Results: Yeah. The Niners are not who you have in your house when you’re trying to clean things up. They just make a mess of things.

Are the once golden Cardinals really struggling as much as everyone says, and look? Having the 49ers in your house isn’t how you want to test that. Alex Smith is getting nothing but frowns but with a defense and running game like the Niners, who cares? The Cardinals are going to have to take their chances in the air because the Niners aren’t going to give them anything on the ground. And expect San Francisco to do some ground work also … oh, wait. They don’t have a running game.

And thanks for nothing World Series Champion San Francisco Giants… Now I don’t have any more baseball b3tz to write until spring. Sheesh. What good is a sweep in the World Series when it isn’t against the Yankees?! 2012 was a great year in baseball. Can’t wait until Spring.

NFL: Redskins at Steelers

Results: Our first guest blogger Hunter, nailed his first prediction as the Steelers took care of the Redskins. We look forward to enjoying more of his contributions.

[ed note: Special guest writer Hunter James provided this post and b3tz. Hope you enjoy it.] Outside of West Virginia not many know about the intense rivalry between these historic powers. Stuck between The Beltway and The Burgh, West Virginians’ rooting interests have been split for generations. Like Bud vs. Miller, this one really gets ‘em going. So how bout now Jethro? What’s it gonna be? Are the Skins—by all accounts on their way up led by presidential write-in candidate RG3—ready to take the next step and win one at Heinz? Are the Steelers, showing signs of age and decline, going to take a fall at home? Doubtful. Even without Troy Polamalu, the Steelers have enough fire-power and brain-power on defense to make it tough going for RG3. He’ll get his yards but mistakes and missed red-zone opportunities will be his downfall. On offense, the Steelers will pound away inside, controlling the clock and the game on a rainy Sunday in Pittsburgh. West Virginians will be sent into a drunken stupor one way or another.

NFL Extravaganza 7!

The Jets better damn well let Tebow play — a lot — this week. I know he’s with the G-O-D and stuff but it’s like he’s pure evil. You don’t want to be tempted but no matter how much you try to avoid him, there he is, just waiting for you. At least let’s stop the tease, Rex Ryan. Hope you played NCAA Extravaganza 8 but, college results are mostly a crap-shoot, so if you want to win this week’s B3TZ Sports game, it’s good to cover yourself. Here are some proper Pro b3tz for you. Yes the B3TZ Sports NFL Sunday Extravaganza SIX is here. And if you don’t see a b3tz you want, comment on it and I will check back later and put it up if I can.

NFL: Lions at Bears

Results: Bears’ D did the job and sleepy Lions woke up too late.

I wasn’t much of a fan of the show Cheers when it ran. You might not remember it at all. There was this one episode I saw though where Diane wanted to be a part of the gang at the bar and joined their football pool. And started winning every bet she made. What was her secret? She matches up team mascots against each other. “A Dolphin could never win fight against a Bear!” It was hilarious. So when the Lions comes to Chicago on Monday Night Football could you apply this same technique? Hard to say. If they are grumpy bears (looking at you, Jay Cutler!) and can’t get the offense rolling and the Lions wake up early from the normal first-half catnap then Bears win. If it’s close toward the end of the 3rd quarter the Lions could spring up and take this one. Alright. That’s enough pedestrian animal metaphors for today…
