I have to say, this has been one of my favorite columns to keep track of and write throughout the season. With that being said, we are getting about half of the bold predictions right each and every weekend so far. With that being said let’s get 100% of them right and go 4/4! let’s get straight to it.
Titans win on Monday Night Football, Ending Texans 7-game win streak:
As of right now, we have no word whether Marcus Mariota or Blaine Gabbert are starting MNF but regardless, that won’t change my prediction. I low-key hope Gabbert starts just to make the prediction bolder. Gabbert reminds me of Brock Osweiler to be honest with you. They start off hot for a week or two for some reason, then boom, they instantly return to playing like a backup at a D3 college. It’s honestly going to come down to which Titans D we see on Monday night. Will it be the Titans D that shut down the Patriots 2 weeks ago or the Titans D that let the Colts destroy them last week? I honestly think it will be a low scoring divisional showdown with Ryan Succop kicking a game-winner in the 4th.
Matt Breida finishes the week as a top-10 RB:
As a fan of the NFL, I can’t wait to see how the San Francisco 49ers incorporate Matt Breida and Jerick Mckinnon as a tandem in the 2019 season. We will save that topic for another day. Anyway, I have loved getting to watch the compliment bell-cow role that Matt Breida has reached this season. Before the bye week, he totaled 141 total yards and 2 touchdowns against the New York Giants suspect defense. The Buccaneers RB’s have allowed a league-high 17 touchdowns to the RB position which is just crazy to think about. That’s around 1.7 touchdowns per game on average. I think this could easily be his best game of the season.
Odell Beckham Jr. Sets a new career high in receiving yards:
For the record, OBJ’s career-high receiving yards in a game is 222. Yes, I’m predicting he passes that this Sunday. As mentioned last weekend on this same article, the Eagles secondary is pure awful right now. If Michael Thomas would have gotten more than 5 targets, my prediction last week would have had some chance. Regardless, Odell is better anyway right? Anyway, listen to the players on this secondary… Check out the list of Rasul Douglas, Avonte Davis, and Chandon Sullivan. Do you think these guys can guard OBJ in triple coverage? me neither! As long as the volume is present, this will be an early Christmas present for Odell this Sunday.
Andrew Luck throws 5 Touchdowns and extends the streak!
Did you know that Andrew Luck now has 7 games in a row with 3+ touchdowns? that is third all-time in terms of the streak. So we’re going to say the streak will be extended and then some! The Dolphins have allowed 4 QB’s to throw for 3+ TD’s in the last 6 games. Andrew Luck has been on a tear and I don’t expect him to stop against this porous Miami Dolphins when he’s been going up against defenses like the Tennessee Titans and the Jacksonville Jaguars in the past couple of weeks. Other than Patrick Mahomes and Drew Brees, Andrew Luck has been one of the most reliable QBs in the league.
