Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 9 of the NFL season!
We started with a blowout on Thursday, as the Titans defeated the Jaguars in convincing fashion. We then started Sunday with another tie, this time in London. Thanks to a missed field goal once again, the Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins ended in a tie at 27 across the pond.
Luckily, the other two games that went into overtime ended with victors. Oakland managed to overcome a missed field goal as the Raiders took home the victory in Tampa Bay. Sunday night saw the first battle of Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz and Dallas’ Dak Prescott duel into free football. It was Prescott that led the Cowboy to victory against the Eagles.
I went 9-4 for Week 8, bringing my total to 68-52 for the season. Ties count as losses when you make picks. It’s simple: if your team doesn’t win, you still get the big L. Here’s a recap of what I got right and wrong:
|Thu Oct 27||8:25 pm||Jacksonville Jaguars||Tennessee Titans|
|Sun Oct 30||9:30 am||Washington Redskins||Cincinnati Bengals X|
|1:00 pm||Detroit Lions||Houston Texans X|
