Week 13: SportsRealm Panel Results

Atul’s Week 13 Record: 10-6-0 (SU), 7-9-0 (ATS), Confidence Score = 82/136, Survivor Pick = Green Bay Packers (-)

That sucked! But, at least Mike McCarthy is finally NOT the coach of that team. Took LONG ENOUGH! So who will be next on the firing lines? Marvin Lewis? Todd Bowles? Adam Gase? Rough ATS week overall, a week full of upsets and surprises. Some awesome games – granted probably depends on fandom as applicable. The Steelers/Chargers ending was definitely epic, as back to back missed FGs negated by offsides calls is far from the norm, and the Steelers literally handed the Chargers the win with those horrific errors at the most inopportune moments. Even if you get caught once, ok, but TWICE? SHAME!!! The Bears epic comeback fell short in an OT loss, the Colts laid an egg in Jacksonville, and I have NO IDEA what the heck the Panthers were doing down in Tampa Bay (well, other than blowing their chances at a wild card spot). And there was the start of this miserable week, an inspired defensive performance and victory by the Cowboys over the hottest team at that point in the NFL in the New Orleans Saints. The 2018 NFL playoff race is getting more interesting by the week!

Other side of the coin holds more intrigue to me personally, as the Jets are now in solid position at 3-9 and only behind the Niners and Raiders as the only 2 win teams remaining. If one of them lose, the Jets move up into the top 2! So they clearly still have a shot at Nick Bosa, which I am psyched about. The Cardinals, while providing entertainment and cause for a firing post-victory, do their fans wonder WHY? I know I would – they didn’t need that win. But it did show how far the mighty Packers have fallen. They are an organization in disarray and looking to find itself. They lack identity and talent – not a good mix. (as a Jets fan, as I am AS WELL EQUIPPED to recognize those qualities in an organization as any, and my Knicks and Mets only add to my qualifications!)
