TNF LIKE A BAD MOVIE...
NFL 2019 TNF WEEK EIGHT
WASHINGTON NATIVES @ MINNESOTA VIKINGSS -17 42 [O]
GAIRZO’S TNF RECORD = 2-5
Thursday Nights are killing your humble prognosticator. 2-5???
Geez, a blind chimp throwing a handful of darts would do better…
This is supposed to be Kirk Cousins’ revenge game against his former employer---the NFL’s
racist-in-chief, Natives owner, Daniel Snyder.
Maybe, I’m just not sure a guy who’s already earned 54 million bucks on top of the 57 million guaranteed on his remaining contract with the Norsemen—with one playoff start—has a right to avenge anyone or anything.
No doubt, Cousins would love to put it to Snyder good, but I’m sure his week is filled with game planning and, you know, basic praying he’ll survive another week as 300 pound men attempt to break him in two.
Besides, Khan, the memorable Star Trek villain—who, we’re told, had an affinity for fine Corinthian leather—reminds us, “Revenge is a dish, best served cold.”
I’m sure Case Keenum, who the Vikings once touted as a great quarterback, and Adrian Peterson who holds that franchise’s every rushing record are icing down their offerings for this midweek pot-luck. Both were unceremoniously de-horned as Vikings and neither have been shy telling reporters they want to stick it to their former team.
· The Redskins are 0-9 SU and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games vs the NFC.
· The Vikings are 15-2 SU and 12-4-1 ATS in their last 17 at home vs teams with losing records.
· The Redskins are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games as an underdog.
This is the kind of game Zimmer and his team seldom took lightly in the past. Since 2014, Minny is 23-10-1 as a home favorite—but last year’s embarrassing 21-point loss to the 16.5 underdog Bills shouldn’t be forgotten.
Gotta figure the Vikes are sure to win by two touchdowns, even if Cousins has a bad prime time record, and even if Adam Thielen is out with a hammy, but I have a hard time giving 17 points to any NFL team.
I’ll take Washington, the points—and the Over…
I’m watching the sightless simian throw his darts now…Ow! My ass!
What’s that little bastard’s name? What? You’re kidding…
