We’re almost halfway through the 2021 season! Where did it all go?
Ryan is back from Canada, as the guys look ahead to their Week 8 Preview podcast.
The London games might be over, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t still put on great events every Sunday!
Join us at either the Sports Bar and Grill Old Street, or Clapham so that you can watch all the games on their own TV.
Make sure you book a table now!
Among some of the other things that Wade and Ryan talk about in this episode of the podcast.
The clocks wind back at 2am on Oct 31st, allowing British fans more of an NFL witching hour.
NFL games in the UK will start at 5pm and 8:20pm for Week 8, so make sure that you kick out any relatives, and turn off any soccer that might get in your way.
The Sunday Night Game airs at a respectable 12:30 am Monday morning, which means you can still catch the game and get a good nights rest.
Work from home! You have our permission.
The broken toy that is JJ Watt finally collapsed into a heap after another season of crippling injuries.
This isn’t the first time that Watt had to limp away from an NFL season due to injury, but with the amount of problems that JJ has been piling on his body, the finish line for his career must surely be in site.
Watson looks like he might be cleared to be traded, but what doe that really mean in NFL terms?
While Deshaun has yet to be formerly charged (with anything), civil and criminal lawsuits are widely different in terms of the way that they are handled.
The NFL could clear him to play, then suddenly decide he needs to sit out 8 games for effrontery to the league.
Whatever the situation ends up being, the biggest loser here is Tua.
Here are some of the games that Wade and Ryan chat about in this episode of the podcast.
Eagles (2-5) -3 vs Lions (0-7) +48.5
Dan Campbell might be the best 0-7 coach in the NFL right now, but that’s not much of a distinction given how bad Jared Goff and the Lions are playing right now.
The only thing that Detroit has going for it is the running game, but how can that last when it faces the pressure every week.
Jalen Hurts is an unappreciated QB as well, putting up big fantasy numbers every week despite the Eagles not being able to stay competitive. They have been close in good games, and beaten in bad ones. Philly does seem to be figuring it out however, with the team staying competitive in most matches.
Ryan thinks that Dan Campbell and the Lions will get their first win of the season here but stuffing out the Phily squad. He likes Goff and the boys to thwart the birds in their pursuit of a win in Michigan.
Wade likes Jalen and the guys to get it down in Motown. The Lions lost an emotional game against Matt Stafford last week, despite throwing every trick play they could at them.
Ryan-Lions 24 Eagles 17
Wade- Eagles 30 Lions 23
Steelers (3-3) vs Browns (4-3) -3.5 +42.5
Bloated Big Ben is slowly easing his way out of what looks to be his final season.
There’s no more zip on that ball, and his O line is barely able to protect him and the running game on each drive.
Cleveland has been stuck in quicksand this season, slowly realising that Baker might not be the best chef in the kitchen to move this team forward. The Browns D and O line carries more of load than the rest of the team.
Ryan is betting on Big Ben and the running game to stick it to the flopping Browns, riding their bye week to a big W against a division rival.
Wade thinks that the Browns still have too much talent on D to rattle Ben and that shaky O line.
Chubb is back, and that’s all they’ll need to stick it to the Steelers.
Ryan- Steelers 24 Browns 20
Wade- Browns 26 Steelers 18
