And just like that…COVID is back in the NFL!
Did you miss it?
Still more entertaining than a Sex & the City revival, COVID is the Carrie Bradshaw of the NFL, shredding the careers of fully grown men.
So what does this mean for Week 15 in the NFL?
We will break it all down for you in our Deck the League podcast.
Wade & Ryan are back and virus free, as they offer you a Christmas Party of a podcast.
Don’t worry about missing out on the pub, just crank this up to 11 and see what knowledge drip feeds into your lineups.
Thus far, 3 of the NFL games for Week 13 have been moved due to COVID, but more could come.
Sean Payton is already out for the big game against the Bucs after testing positive, too bad the trailer for his new Netflix movie had no tests of positivity.
We will let you know anything that we hear about the games, and when they might be played.
Among some of the games the guys look at in the episode include:
Patriots (9-4) vs -2 Colts (7-6) +45.5
The Patriots are one of the few teams not to get sidelined by the virus this weekend, as we all know that Bill Belichick plans for the biggest threat against them.
See ya virus.
The Colts are favoured by 2 points, despite having a worse record than New England? What does Las Vegas know that we don’t?
Ryan and Wade both like the Pats to keep moving on here, as they seem to dink and dunk enough to get the job done.
Ryan thinks that the game will be a low scoring one, and Wade thinks it will be a back and forth, tight chess match that could get boring for a late night UK fan.
Ryan-Pats 21 Colts 17
Wade-Pats 27 Colts 24
Panthers (5-8) vs -10.5 Bills (7-6)
Oh how the mighty have fallen, a statement that echoes for both of these teams.
Carolina started strong on the back of Christian Mc, and a solid defence.
Now the Panthers are struggling to stay in games, and Cam Newton is atrocious.
Buffalo has gone from number one on the division, to hoping to make a shot at the playoffs.
They need to win this one to stay in it!
Ryan likes his Bills to blow out the lowly Panthers, and get back to their winning ways at home.
Wade struggles to see the Bills covering such a large spread given injuries, COVID and western New York weather.
Ryan-Bills 35 Panthers 13
Wade-Bills 24 Panthers 14
Seahawks (5-8) vs -5 LA Rams (9-4) +45.5
Russ is cooking once again on the back of a rejuvenated running game, and Tyler Lockett getting his groove back.
The Seahawks are in a deep playoff hole, and the chances of them making a post season run fall deeper every week.
LA Rams finally got a win, batting down the pesky Cardinals in a game that saw them still stay in contention for a solid playoff chance. They also got COVID. A lot of it.
Ryan thinks that Seattle will continue their winning ways, sticking it to Matt Stafford and his bad back of infected team mates.
Wade thinks that even an LA Rams team covered in COVID is still better than a healthy Seattle team.
Ryan-Seahawks 30 Rams 24
Wade-Rams 26 Seahawks 23
