How ‘bout football yesterday? Some surprising blow-outs, and even more surprising upsets! (Although I am claiming that my post from mid-game yesterday brought back the struggling Giants AND Ravens).
How’d I do?
Alright, the last thing I want to get to is a quick Monday Night Preview, real life is calling with it being Halloween and all. I did pick the Chargers to win, but I have a slight feeling it might be a closer game than most are expecting. The Chargers had a really tough game against the Jets last week, failing to close it out once a lead was built. And they’re going to have to be very careful with that this week playing in one of the loudest stadiums in the country out at Arrowhead, especially on a holiday which will likely have the fans extra energized. I predict the Chargers getting a quick lead, but if the Chiefs look to start a comeback… beware of the fans playing a huge role in creating momentum. As far as fantasy is concerned, Philip Rivers is projected to get about 15, which I think sounds about right against the middle of the road Chiefs Pass D (ranked 18th in yards allowed, but T4th in TD’s given up). Reports are also saying that second string/goal line RB Mike Tolbert is likely going to be out with a combo hamstring/hand injury, so look for Ryan Mathews to have a better than usual game, and to bounce back after a poor showing against the Jets. As for the Chiefs, their skill players have always been a little sporadic for my taste, Bowe has had both a 1 and over 20 point game game this season, and Cassel has had a high 20’s game and a -3 effort. So, if they’re who you’re stuck with, then good luck to ya… Mark Sanchez has had a negative point game this season, and he managed to get 18 on the Chargers.
