Listen: Steelers, Vikings, Eagles discussed on The Herd
"Let's start with the eagles in the Redskins eagles clinched a playoff berth with a win. And a Vikings loss to the bears. You can't control what happens with the Vikings. But you can't control what happens on the football field. Remember, this is a first let's talk about the Redskins. It's a Redskins team which has been decimated by injuries. And then after the loss last week DJ swearing juror. Who is probably their best best defensive back. He called out the defensive coordinator play calling and he got himself cut. So in addition to injuries they actually jettisoned one of their best defensive player's the week before this game and Josh Johnson's still their quarterback. Meanwhile, the eagles have won four the last five they're actually scoring more points per game with Nick foles is their quarterback as opposed to Carson Wentz. They seem to figure things out. Looked eagles already beat the Redskins going back to week thirteen. I like the eagles lane six and a half points to win twenty four to six. Bengals at Steelers. You're the Bengals were on a course to have statistically the worst defense in the history of the National Football League in the history. That's for belief. So what they do they fired the defense coordinator Marvin Lewis who is a former defense coordinator with the ravens said, I'll call the defense place. You know, what they haven't been terrible terrible nearly beat the chargers on the road. They've been much much more competitive. Meanwhile, the Steelers can clinch the AFC north with a win. Any ravens lost to the Browns have lost for the last five games? Look when you are consistently inconsistent. You're just inconsistent for a reason this is a Steelers team that has a tendency to play down to their competition. The Steelers have the fifth worst turnover differential the season only the forty Niners who stink the buccaneers. Who stink. The jaguars. You stink. The cardinals who stink heavy worst turnover differential than the Steelers. That's what's hurting them. And it's because Big Ben Rothlisberger. Don't fifteen interceptions now. They should get healthy running back. They should win the game. But this is a fourteen and a half point line at home. Steelers beat the Bengals in week seven. This is the old defensive coordinator for the Bengals twenty eight to twenty one. I'll grant, you know, Andy Dalton so you're talking about Jeff Driscoll, but Jeff Driscoll they're going to shorten the game. Steelers win by ten twenty seven seventeen. Bears and Vikings bears at Vikings. Vikings can clinch a playoff berth with a win or an eagles loss. That means again must win their four and a half point favorites. They went back to back gains by fifteen plus points. They start to figure out offense. Their defense leaves league in sacks with fifty this season. And if they get a lead expect the bears to pack it in the bear, the the most important stat and the NFL is what do you do on third down. Can you get off the field? And there's nobody better than the NFL than the Minnesota. Vikings red zone. TV presents loud. I sacks. I that's better than the bears. So do I think they're often slice it up? No. But they only have to win by four and a half points or more. Mitch Trubisky has one or fewer touchdown pass in four or five road starts this season. So I don't think he throws touchdown pass. I think they kicked field goals. I think the Vikings win seventeen six. Chargers at Bronco the Broncos lost three consecutive games. Feels like Vance Joseph is is going to get fired."
