Now it’s time for that game that should be the best one on TV this week.

Game of the Week:

What could be bigger than Brett Favre against the Packers? What could be bigger than Baltimore’s showdown with New England? A showdown in New Orleans takes center stage; the undefeated Jets take on the undefeated Saints. Both teams are hurting but capable of winning. Saints QB Drew Brees is nearly untouchable when blitzed, which is the Jet Defense’s specialty. Brees could be shut down by the Jets, but the Jets will be missing their back-up safeties. The Saints’ Defense is ranked in the top 10. Mark Sanchez will have his first true test against a potential playoff contender. This should be a good old smash mouth match-up. The Jets will fight valiantly, but they will suffer their first loss of the season.

Prediction: Saints 24-23

Well, that’s all the time I have for today. I will get a little MLB playoff preview this Monday. So stay tuned. If you disagree with anything I say, leave a comment below or email me at spidey23us@yahoo.com. Thanks for reading and good luck with your teams.

Yours Truly,

Sebastian Maldonado

  1. Although I read your predictions with interest, the only teams I’m interested in are the ones with ‘NY’ somewhere in the name. And I happen to agree with you: this week, the Giants will win and the Jets will lose. But don’t you think the Jets will lose by more than one point? I do. Mark has been living a dream these passed few weeks. Here comes reality.

    Bring on the Yankees!
