#185: NFL 2019 Week 16 Preview with Hal Bent Sports Krunch w/DKROM

    • Sports

1. Week 15 Takeaways



Me: It’s time to put Drew Brees in the discussion as one of the five best QB’s of all time  



Hal: 49ers with a huge lost opportunity



2. Truth/Exaggeration 



-The Browns should fire BOTH Freddie Kitchens and John Dorsey

-The Jaguars problems will only get worse if they retain Tom Coughlin

-Matt Patricia will get fired after the 2020 season if the Lions fail to sniff the playoffs

-The Buccaneers should extend Shaq Barrett by February and give Jameis Winston the franchise tag as opposed to a multi-year deal

-The Indianapolis Colts should use their first-round pick on Utah State QB Jordan Love if he significantly impresses them during the pre-draft process

-With their offense re-discovering its 2018 mojo and their defense playing underrated football, the Kansas City Chiefs are the team the Ravens should fear the most in the playoffs

-Kirk Cousins, Dak Prescott, Fred Warner, and Justin Simmons should have made the Pro Bowl as opposed to Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Luke Kuechly and Earl Thomas

-ALL NFC playoff teams outside of New Orleans should be praying hard that the Saints don’t get the NFC’s #1 seed again



3. Game of the Week: Bills at Patriots

-Should anybody be surprised if the Bills pull off the upset in Foxboro on Saturday?

-Is there a case for Tre’Davious White as already being on the level of Stephon Gilmore?

-Key matchups: Cole Beasley vs. Devin McCourty, Jordan Phillips and Ed Oliver versus Patriots iOL

-Game picks

4. Game of the Week: Packers at Vikings

-While some people may see a high-scoring shootout in this game, I also think a defensive struggle is just as likely, especially given the inconsistencies of the Packers offense and Dalvin Cook looking iffy to play. What do you think?

-X Factors for each team

Packers: Kenny Clark, Jaire Alexander/Kevin King 

Vikings: Alexander Mattison, Eric Kendricks/Linval Joseph

-Key matchups: David Bakhtiari/Bryan Bulaga vs. Danielle Hunter/Everson Griffen, Brian O’Neill vs. Za’Darius Smith, Blake Martinez vs. Alexander Mattison  

-Game picks



5. Picks for remainder of Week 16 games



-Texans at Buccaneers

-Rams at 49ers

-Jaguars at Falcons

-Ravens at Browns

-Saints at Titans

-Panthers at Colts

-Bengals at Dolphins

-Giants at Redskins

-Steelers at Jets

-Lions at Broncos

-Raiders at Chargers

-Cowboys at Eagles

-Cardinals at Seahawks

-Chiefs at Bears



6. BOLD PREDICTIONS



ME: Matt Prater wins the game for the Lions on an NFL record 65-yard field goal

HAL: Mitchell Trubisky throws 3 TD’s, 250 pasisng yards, 100 rushing yards



7. Challenge Flags



ME: San Francisco 49ers…let last weekend’s loss against the Falcons hurt as bad as it can and let it be your fuel these final two games and in the playoffs

HAL: Jason Garrett, Doug Pederson: WHO WANTS THE NFC EAST????
