Hakeem Nicks is one of two Giants who may be better off left on your bench this week
Week 10 marks the unofficial start to the second half of the NFL regular season. Eight games remain until the NFL’s postseason, but it’s fewer than that when you take into consideration the start of your fantasy league’s playoffs. Week 10 also means that fantasy owners begin their stretch run without the services of Aaron Rodgers, Robert Griffin III, Trent Richardson, Alfred Morris, Larry Fitzgerald, Randall Cobb, the Arizona and Green Bay DSTs, among others.
If the Eagles Fire Their Coach, Here Are Their Best Bets
It’s all beginning to fall apart in Philadelphia where the Eagles showed so much promise a year ago. Maybe it was never smart of them to embrace the “Dream Team” nickname, but after their spending spree before the 2011 season everyone was sure they’d be good.
Rookies, playoffs, Andy Reid, quarterbacks and more in our bold second half NFL predictions.
The second half is here and that means things are about to get interesting in the NFL. So I thought, in true Athlon Sports prognostication fashion, I would put on my predicting hat for the second half. Here are outlandish, outstanding and potentially out of touch bold predictions for the rest of the NFL season:
Drew Brees and Michael Vick will lead frustrated teams on Monday night.
Two NFC teams in desperate need of a win will meet on Monday Night Football, when the New Orleans Saints host the Philadelphia Eagles tonight at 8:30pm EST on ESPN. New Orleans’ tumultuous offseason has morphed into a terrible start on the field, with the Saints standing at 2-5 after going 13-3 last year.
Denver's Peyton Manning is 7-0 all-time vs. Cincinnati, with 17 TDs and three INTs.
NFL Week 9 previews and predictions for every game on the schedule:
Chiefs (1-6) at Chargers (3-4)
These two AFC West division rivals face off for the second time in six weeks. In Week 4, the Bolts lit up the Chiefs, 37–20. Overall, San Diego signal-caller Philip Rivers has a 9–4 record in his career against Kansas City. This Thursday night fight could be win No. 10 for Rivers vs. K.C. Chargers by 4
The Falcons are now 15-0 when Matt Ryan throws three or more TD passes.
Matt Ryan’s homecoming could not have gone much better. A product of Philadelphia’s William Penn Charter School, “Matty Ice” led the Atlanta Falcons to a 30–17 statement victory against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in the “City of Brotherly Love.”
