Who to root for week 7
Week 7 Games
Chargers (4-1) at Jets (3-3) 1:00PM ET,
Rooting against the Jets is pretty much an automatic. Plus we want the Chargers to win the AFCW denying the Raiders. With the tiebreaker over the Chargers not overally worried about losing in seeding.
Colts (0-6) at Saints (4-2) 8:20PM ET,
We have the Saints first round pick the more they lose the better for us. Secondary reason: Neither having Luck going to the Colts or even worse a health Peyton plus all the picks the Colts get for trading the first pick overall benifits NE.
Bears (3-3) at Buccaneers (4-2)
We want the Bucs to win the NFCS denying the Saints.
Broncos (1-4) at Dolphins (0-5) 1:00PM ET,
rare I root for an AFCE rival, but I would rather the Broncos get a high draft pick than the Fins.
Falcons (3-3) at Lions (5-1) 1:00PM
If the playoffs were held today the Saints would get wildcard spot, Falcons, Redskins and Bears represent the best chances to take that away from them.
Redskins (3-2) at Panthers (1-5) 1:00PM ET,
See above. Plus I would rather the top picks go the the NFC rather than the AFC, Carolina loss helps in that.
Seahawks (2-3) at Browns (2-3) 1:00PM ET,
Seahawks represent an outside chance at taking a wildcard spot from the Saints.
Texans (3-3) at Titans (3-2) 1:00PM ET,
Neither team are much of a threat to NE at this point for seedings but of the two the Titans are slightly more of a threat.
Chiefs (2-3) at Raiders (4-2) 4:05PM ET,
We have the Raiders second round pick
Steelers (4-2) at Cardinals (1-4)
Steelers represnt one of the more significant threats in the AFC. Rooting for a tough physically exhausting game.
Packers (6-0) at Vikings (1-5) 4:15PM ET,
Let the Vikings get one of the higher draft picks
Rams (0-5) at Cowboys (2-3) 4:15PM ET,
Keep the high draft picks in the NFC.
Ravens (4-1) at Jaguars (1-5) MNF 8:30PM ET,
Ravens represnt a bigger threat to NE for playoff seeding than Jax.
Byes: 49ers (5-1), Bengals (4-2), Bills (4-2), Eagles (2-4), Giants (4-2), Patriots (5-1)
Hopefully we will have a good bye week.
Note: this the the first time I have been able to find a NEP reason for rooting in each and every game being played during a given week.
Citing the Bible as proof of God is like citing comic books to prove the existence of Superman.
