Unless you’ve been under a rock this last week, which is honestly understandable, you’re probably aware of the Covid-related incidents that have been rippling through the sports world.
Obviously, this is about Kyrie Irving returning to the Nets, only to immediately go into health and safety protocol.
Just kidding, we’re talking about the NFL moving games to weekdays in Week 15 thanks in part to a slew of positive Covid-19 tests across multiple teams in the league. The NFL’s issues with Covid-19 outbreaks come on the heels of the NHL’s postponement and cancellation of certain games, and while some NBA teams are down to their reserves. Things got so bad for the Chicago Bulls that Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson offered to take the floor for them.
It’s been a week, but that also means we get some bonus NFL football and we can stave off the boring College Bowl games just a little longer.
Last Week = 8-5
So far this week = 8-3
Season-to-Date = 113-90-2
The 15th Week of the 2021 NFL Season, Part 2
Las Vegas Raiders @ Cleveland Browns (-5.5) – Moved to Monday
Giving more than 3 points when you’re starting a third-string QB seems like a stretch.
The Pick = Las Vegas
Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears (+3.5)
Sometimes you just pick the better team.
The Pick = Minnesota
Washington Football Team @ Philadelphia Eagles (-6.5) – Moved to Tuesday
There is too much uncertainty around the WFT QB situation for me.
The Pick = Philadelphia
Seattle Seahawks @ Los Angeles Rams (-4.5) – Moved to Tuesday
I am just so done with the Seahawks.
The Pick = Los Angeles
Ideally, we wouldn’t still be delaying with COVID-related delays in 2021, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned over these last two years, it’s to roll with things. Sure, we’re hoping next year is better, but until then, let’s just have some fun and enjoy the next three days of football! Cheers!
