#179: NFL 2019 Week 11 Preview with Hal Bent Sports Krunch w/DKROM

    • Sports

1. Week 10 Takeaways

Me: 

-So much for the “Fish Tank” in Miami. The Dolphins are now winners of two straight games…and their previous three losses have been by an average of eight points. This borderline bare cupboard of a roster is playing HARD football, and that is a testament to the incredible job Brian Flores is doing as head coach. The Dolphins MUST keep him for at least three more seasons. He has proven himself to be THE guy to see this rebuild through.  



Hal: The Steelers defense is for real



2. Truth/Exaggeration (Division race edition)



-AFC West (The Raiders have an EXCELLENT chance to overtake the Chiefs and win the AFC West)



CHIEFS REMAINING SCHEDULE RAIDERS REMAINING SCHEDULE

@ Chargers Bengals

BYE @ Jets

Raiders @ Chiefs

@ Patriots Titans

Broncos Jaguars

@ Bears @ Chargers

Chargers @ Broncos

 

-NFC North (The NFC North battle will likely be decided when these two teams meet Week 16 on Monday Night Football)



PACKERS REMAINING SCHEDULE VIKINGS REMAINING SCHEDULE

BYE Broncos

@ 49ers BYE

@ Giants @ Seahawks

Redskins Lions

Bears @ Chargers

@ Vikings Packers

@ Lions Bears



-NFC West (Whoever wins the Week 17 matchup, wins the NFC West)



49ERS REMAINING SCHEDULE SEAHAWKS REMAINING SCHEDULE

Cardinals Bye

Packers @ Eagles

@ Ravens Vikings

@ Saints @ Rams

Falcons @ Panthers

Rams Cardinals

@ Seahawks 49ers



-Given their easier schedule the rest of the way, the Eagles should be at least slightly favored to win the NFC East





3. GAME OF THE WEEK: Texans at Ravens

-The Texans defense did an excellent job minus JJ Watt against the Jaguars a few weeks ago. But know they face MVP candidate Lamar Jackson and that MONSTROUS Ravens ground attack. Do you have tremendous concern that the absences of both Watt AND Jadeveon Clowney will be felt big time in this game?

-The Ravens defense did a tremendous job a few weeks ago against Russell Wilson. What makes Deshaun Watson and the Texans O just as difficult for them to defend (if not more so)?

-Game deciding matchups: DeAndre Hopkins vs. Marcus Peters

-Game Predictions



4. Waiver Wire: Gem or Garbage?



-Nick Foles

-Brian Hill

-Derrius Guice

-Dede Westbrook

-Diontae Johnson

-Jacob Hollister

-Noah Fant



5. Game Predictions



-Steelers at Browns

-Bills at Dolphins

-Jets at Redskins

-Cowboys at Lions

-Broncos at Vikings

-Jaguars at Colts

-Falcons at Panthers

-Saints at Buccaneers

-Cardinals at 49ers

-Patriots at Eagles

-Bengals at Raiders

-Bears at Rams

-Chiefs at Chargers

7. BOLD PREDICTIONS



ME: Minkah Fitzpatrick picks off Baker Mayfield THREE times

HAL: Kyler Murray 4 TD’s (3 passing, 1 rushing), 300+ yards passing, 100+ yards rushing

8. Challenge Flags



ME: Rams. Every game from here on out is a playoff game. Either feed Todd Gurley 20 touches per game or come clean about his health once and for all

HAL: Jon Gruden and Raiders…MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!!!!
