2012 - week 08 - results
Very good week ATS, just barely below .500 for totals. And for the year I'm again above .500 !!
Interestingly enough key injuries may or may not have had affected their team. OAK was w/o their LT yet won their game on the road at KC or this could be just a reflection that KC as a team is 'lost', QB Quinn did go down in Q1, but QB Cassel sub'd and did fairly well.
TEN was also w/o their LT and they lost @home to IND. IND seems to have a running game
NYJ was w/o their LB Scott and were blown out @home by MIA, NYJ seems to be another 'lost' team.
WAS had questions with their MLB Fletcher as well prior to game, but he played and they still lost to PIT. Seems to me WAS WR's had the dropsies, could be the weather..
Speaking of the weather, it seemed to help CLE in their upset at home of SD. Can you believe a dome team beat a grass team in inclement weather? ATL did just that to PHI and now PHI may see a new HC in the coming year. JAC played way UP for their game with GB in cold conditions (under 40 degrees with wind chill) and w/o their RB or is it GB had too many skill players out (WRs) to get a +2TD victory (and cover the spread)?
weather games ... (see possible-weather-games-for-week-8 )
O/U 1-3, ATL @PHI end game total of 47 pts went just over the set 46.5 total, ATL scored on their first six possessions, just dominating, PHI got a garbage time TD
ATS 3-1 WAS lost to PIT due to WR's and play calling IMO, WAS should've run more
Again this year the designated home team (STL) for the overseas game, really lost from the beginning without home field advantage.
CAR DL played well, just their O has no consistency in passing or running game, so CHI won 'ugly' just like GB
DET was a bit lucky at home (another ugly win?), DAL was inept again at the end of a game (a NYG ugly win?).
I wonder if DEN will meet SF in NO for the super bowl?
teams coming off a bye week were 3-3 SU and ATS
teams going into their bye week were 2-2 SU and ATS
