Week 14 in the NFL

Alex and Chris pick the weekend's NFL games and offer insight on their differences.

Alex: Ok, our first difference. You have Philly, I have NYG. I just wish I could believe that Plaxico is that big a problem for them.

Chris: Probably a poor pick on my part, taking handicapped Philly on the road, IN New Jersey, but stranger things have happened. Upset.

Alex: I know. And it'd be real nice for us. Who knows? Maybe a bunch of Philly fans show up with crutches in Plaxico jerseys.

Chris: Or Harris Smith jerseys.

Alex: Let's move on to Cle-Ten. You picked Cle.

Chris: Again, taking chances.

Alex: You realize that Brady and Derek are out for the year?

Chris: Yeah.

Alex: Their QB is Ken Dorsey. Let me say that again: their QB is Ken Dorsey.

Chris: Did a certain 40-year old QB beat a division-leading team this year? Singlehandedly? I think so.

Alex: Singlehandedly? Might be a stretch. But I wouldn't be suprised if we finally get our Vinny sighting in the upcoming weeks.

Chris: Sure, Brad Johnson had some help, but it's not his fault his defense is great.

Alex: Haha.

Alex: Ok, next. You have faith in Buffalo over Miami?

Chris: I think Buffalo could spring back, they've been consistently inconsistent. Plus I don't know if the wildcat works in Toronto.

Alex: Haha. I hear this week they're only having 3 downs. And moving the goalposts up to the front of the end zone. That's just what I hear, though.

Alex: Final difference this week, you have KC over Denver?

Chris: Again, two inconsistent teams. Who knows which Denver will show up?

Alex: I just think KC is too bad against this Denver O.

Chris: Is it still a rivalry? It was fun in the late '90s.

Alex: I don't think so much anymore. I mean, it's division. So there's something there. I don't think it's as intense though.

Chris: That's too bad.

Alex: Ok, big finale. Both of these come in the same game. We're lucky this week. First, Roethlis-rating?

Chris: Roethlis-chicken breast: no legs.

Alex: Hahaha. Roethlis-sack lunch meat. I think it's pretty obvious where I'm going with that. DeMarcus is hungry.

Chris: Haha. I think our defense will be just fine against their O.

Alex: Oh, yessir. Bobby-effect this week?

Chris: Misses tackles because he's been surfing the net from his iPhone instead of paying attention during meetings.

Alex: What is he searching? "How To: Form Tackle, with Joe Theisman and LT, with special guest, Shawne Merriman"

Chris: That or Googling his name to see what kind of fan blogs are out there.
