Nov. 17—Ouch. And Woo-hoo!
The ouch: I had my worst week of the season. I went 4-9-1 in Week 10. What was I thinking with some of my picks? This is why I don't gamble. I'd be bankrupt.
The woo-hoo: My Philadelphia Eagles looked good in beating the Denver Broncos. "Big Play" Darius Slay's 83-yard fumble return for a touchdown late in the third quarter put the game away. And nice "attempt" by Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to stop Slay as Slay ran past him. Making a business decision, Teddy?
At 4-6, the Eagles are somehow in a playoff position. Am I ready to finally pick them to win? Check below.
I am 86-65-1 for the season.
