So you think you know the NFL?
Perhaps you can predict the future, tame the weather and forecast winning lottery numbers, too.
Those claiming to know what will happen in pro football need only look at what went on this wild weekend, which featured a half-dozen super matchups that didn’t turn out quite so super.
Nothing could be juicier than the defending champion New York Giants at Atlanta.
Oops: Falcons 34, Giants 0.
OK, then Denver at Baltimore. Delicious.
Sorry: Broncos 34, Ravens 17.
Houston, coming off an embarrassing Monday night rout at New England, against Indianapolis for AFC South supremacy.
Pffft: Texans 29-17 to clinch the division.
For something even more absurd than the lack of competitiveness in those games, try this one: San Francisco 31, New England 3 in the third quarter.
And this: Patriots 31, 49ers 31 with 6:43 left in the fourth quarter.
A little bit? That’s the NFL this season.
If anyone thinks the weirdness has ended with two weeks remaining, well, don’t count on it.View Entire Story
