I went 2-1 in week one against the spread with my LOCKS, week two saw even more success. Had the Raiders not completely blown the game I'd be 3-0 this week, but they at least held on for the good old PUSH. 4-1-1 to start the young season is pretty good. But let's look beyond just the score here....
What I said about the Raiders/Bills game:
Darren McFadden is going to run wild on the Bills, it's going to be epic. I say he goes over 150, at least 2 touches. Since I have Michael Bush on my fantasy team he obviously isn't going to do shit, it will be DMC all day err day. Raiders pass D is a lot better than the Chiefs, and Fitzpatrick comes back to earth this Sunday.
DMC did not run for 150 yards. But I didn't exactly say that. He ran for 72 and caught 71 more. That's 143 yards and what? What's that? 2 touchdowns.
Prediction: 150 yards and 2 scores. Actual: 143 yards and 2 scores.
What I said about the Chargers/Patriots game:
Philip Rivers can't beat the Patriots, just can't do it. Including postseason he's 1-4 with a 78.4 rating against them. Plus, did anyone else catch a pass from Tom Brady last weekend? Guy just told all of New England to show up hammered drunk and rowdy as shit for their home opener. With that going on behind him, he might put up 600 yards and Gronk will have 2 scores. This will be a barn burner but New England will put up most of those points.
Fine, 600 yards was a stretch, but I said he MIGHT put up 600. He threw for 423 yards, same thing. Gronk came through, because he's the fucking man.
Prediction: Gronk will have 2 scores. Actual: Gronk had 2 scores (4 rec, 86 yds, 2 TD's)
What I said about the Seahawks/Steelers game:
I usually stay away from spreads this big, that's what she said, but Pitt is coming off an embarrassing loss to Baltimore last week in which they made 7 turnovers and Hines Ward got fucking laid out. You don't think they're going to come out a little pissed off?? Seattle is still rebuilding and they have no idea what they're walking into at Heinz field. Crowd will be nuts and the Steelers will be fired up. This should be a blowout.
Prediction: This should be a blowout. Actual: It was a blowout.
