Cheers, settle welcome back to the on the ball podcast. This is episode eighty six of the show. Pleasure to have you here once again. If you new to the channel, welcome. If you've been here before, welcome back. Thanks for rejoining us for our weekly NFL chat. If you've a lot, if you're a fan of the channel, you've probably realize it's bit of a patting going on now. So we do a weekly NFL review episode where we chat about the weekends Games gone by and then we do a fantasy episode the following day. So today it is the real life day, so we will be talking about we ten of the NFL. I am without piach today. My loyal guest life took life two priority today, which is fair enough. Appreciate what he does for the podcast always, but he will be back tomorrow for the fantasy episode. But today we'll just be me chatting about the NFL and I'll be gone through the same segments as we did last week and we'll see how it goes and might be a little bit shorter because it's just me chatting, but we'll see. All right, let's get started. Match of the week. I I'm going to start. It's probably the obvious one. I think. Think there's a little bit of a Smoky in Detroit. Washington almost put off come back of the year. But yeah, it's got to go to the bills vers of cardinals. The Hail Mary Game The cardinals one thirty, two to thirty at home. Thirty seconds to go, the bills were down and Josh Allen through a bit of it off throw to Stephan digs. It resulted in a touchdown, but it was more the catch that made it a touchdown than the throw. Thirty seconds ago you thought that was it. You thought that was game over. You thought the cardinals might have a couple cracks at it and the bills will walk off winners, go, go back home with their eight win record. But then Kylamari and Deandre Hopkins decided to have other plans. Really, two seconds to go, Kylamari scrambles out of the pocket, laces out from about fifty a perfect hail Mary just two yards into the end zone. Hopkins Goes Up. Yes, he's one of the got the best hands in the NFL at the moment, but he had three blokes on him and he you just like yeah, no chances getting back down. And then he just comes out with it and yeah, just incredible. Couch. This throw was also pretty good, but more impressed by the catch personally. I know a lot of people are saying it was the throw that made it, but for me that was just incredible. But in terms of the game in general, Josh Allen and Kyle Amari both had over three hundred yards from scrimmage. So the will not from scrimmage, passing and rushing yards combined. The tale of the day, though, was the...

...bills struggling to stop the run. Arizona just ran it down their throats with chase edmonds, Kenyan Drake and obviously Kylamari. They all had over fifty yards. Ken and Drake crack the hundred. But yeah, in the air, Hopkins had a field day. I think you had a hundred and twenty seven yards in the air. But then on the other side, to be fair, the bigs sor not the biggest. I just looked at Beasley and digs. The bills receivers, I don't know, had a pretty good day as well. Beasley had over a hundred yards, Diggs had ninety. Old John Brown, first time he's had a good game in a while. He's been battling injury, but he had about seventy five. So the bills looked good in the air, but ultimately there's just the cardinals who were too good. But yeah, it's cracking game and that moves us into our winners and losers of the week, and the cardinals are my first winner, as well as Calamari. Calamari is now his MVP chances are looking actually kind of tasty at the moment. Patrick my homes is still probably the favor I even looked at the betting markets or anything, but after Wilson's week, and we'll talk about that in a little bit, I think his favoritism has dwindled a lot in the last fortnight and now Kyli probably next to my homes. They're the two favorites in my opinion. And I still think Aaron Rodgers is being overlooked pretty harshly, but I think that's due to the fact that they haven't played too many blockbuster games where people have taken notice, where the cardinals seem to be playing a good team week and week out. But yeah, he's MVP. He chances took a huge boost mahomes was on the bi so that he didn't overshadow him. Wilson had a shot go through two in exceptions of three interceptions or whatever through. Will talk about that later. But now the cardinals are top of that nfce West Division, which is absolutely stacked. The cardinals, rams and seahawks are all six and three, but the cardinals, due to their record against those two teams, go on top. And Look, I don't know if you can say this, but they're almost a lock for the playoffs, just not necessarily based on their record but just how well they're playing. It's hard not to see them winning two or three more games for the rest of the season, which is probably what they would have to do to miss out on finals or playoffs. So yeah, I think we can almost lock them in now, not necessarily as a division winner, but as a wild card for sure. And Yeah, if I was a third or fourth seed in the NFC I would be pretty scared of coming up against the cardinals as a wild card team. They look very dangerous on both sides of the ball. But yeah, they just keep scoring points for funds. So hard to stop Kyli because if you good in the air then he just you know, runs for Russias for a hundred yards and edmonds and drake are starting to form a pretty formidable partnership on the ground. So they're my first winner of the week. My second winner of the week is the New York giants. They beat the Eagles by ten points. Their NFC East division rival, Daniel Jones, had an absolute cracker of a game. had over three hundred yards rushing and passing combined, and one thing that surprised me was how fast he...

...is. I think it was that rushing touchdown he scored. There was a gap opened up, is pretty big gap, but he absolutely steamed through that hole and before he knew it he was gone like there was no stopping him. I didn't realize how fast it was. I knew he was our Gile and stuff like that, but that was incredible. They're now three and seven, which you think isn't too great, but they're now the eagles are on top of that division, but they've only got three wins. They had to tie, which is putting them up over the giants at the moment. But yeah, very close to taking the lead in that NFC east very exciting division, although it is very low quality, but it's anyone's game still. But yet to add to the great weekend that the giants had by beating their eagles rivals and drag bringing them in closer. The lions beat the football team, the Washington football team, who, as I mentioned earlier, almost had a great comeback and if Washington one, for me they almost would have been the favorites to win that division, because I think Washington are probably the most solid team out of the for like the most reliable. But yet losing that, I think is going to be like that's game Washington. If they wanted to win, they probably needed to beat Detroit. So yeah, now it's probably down to the eagles versus the giants, and I think in the last two rounds all four of the teams play each other. So like the last two rounds features to NFC East divisional matches, which is going to be pretty entertaining. In terms of the giants, though, they've got the by this week and then they played the bangles the following week, which is going to be a huge match up. If they win that, they're going to have a pretty good chance of making the playoffs. If they lose that, like I wouldn't write them off completely, but they basically it's a must win, but at the same time if they lose they probably still not out of it, but you can't really be losing to the Bangles and making the playoffs. But and then they've got a tough month after that. I think they play some of the NFC west teams or something like that. And why know? They definitely play the cardinals and so do the eagles. I think they all play in the NFC west. So tough month after that. But if they can get a win against the bengals there, then they're on four wins. It's probably likely only going to need six or maybe seven wins to win this division. So if they get up to four wins they're upset a big team in the following month and then they win their last two divisional games in the last two weeks of the comball then they're good chance of making it the in terms of the eagles, they have the browns this week, which is a huge match for both teams actually, because the browns are in wild card didn't contention as well. and similar to the giants, after this week for the eagles they have very tough month as well. I think they've got the seahawks, the cardinals, maybe the packers as well, I think. But Yeah, very exciting division it's turning out to be, and the giants pilched predict they would win the division last week and I think he's not too far off there.

I'll talk about who I've got winning that division in in a little bit. So Yep, second winner of the week is the giant for me. Before I get into my third winner, I just like to say if you wouldn't mind liking, commenting and subscribing to the channel of the greatly appreciate it. Or if you're listening, to get around us on the platform that you are listening by reviewing it and following the podcast would be very much appreciated. Or my third winner is actually not a full team, it's a half team. It is the saints. On the defensive side of the ball, they are restricted to the forty nine, is to thirteen points after holding the bucks two three just a week ago. Since the start of October, they've conceded the eighth fewest yards per tempt in the air, the least yards per carry on the ground and the fifth least points against in total. So it's been a pretty scintillating you know, five or six matches for the Saints d they started very slow and there was a lot of shootouts they were getting into at the start of the season, but now their defense is starting to step up and it's an important time for the defense because drew brees is out punctured lung, fractured ribs, could be out for as long, as you know, four or five weeks. So they do have Jamis, who's probably one of the better backups going around in the league. Or if they played Taysom Hill. We don't know what's going on yet, but their defense is probably going to have to win them games in the next month. They don't have the toughest schedule going around. I think they've got the falcons, broncos falcons, but if they if the saints can keep those teams to under twenty points like they have been in the last fortnight, even with Jamis, I think they will pretty comfortably win those matches. So yeah, brilliant stuff in the Saints Defense. They've really stepped it up. They started slow but starting to get hot at the right time. It's a shame breeze got injured because I think the saints were starting to grow into an FC favoriteism for me personally. So it's a shame to see him go down, but it's going to be interesting to see how Jamis goes. Is your transform men under Sean Pateon or not? They've got the Falcons this week, which should be an interesting one because obviously the Falcons, they've been pretty bad this year, but their offense is still got a lot of quality on it, so it will be interesting to see how that matches up against the saints informed defense. And then it's a big test for Jamis because if there's any defense you should be carving up, it's going to be this Atlantic d so big match there. But yeah, that's my third win of the Saints Defense. My fourth and final winner of week ten of the NFL is the Las Vegas Raiders, probably not getting enough recognition for this season. I think they're going severely under the radar. They're now six and three. People are starting to take a look at them as a wild card chance, but up until this week I don't think anyone would even mentioned them in the playoff picture, despite their impressive results. They're six and three and their three losses have been to the Patriots in week three, so before they went bad, basically they lost to the bills and they lost to the buccaneers, so and they've beaten teams like the saints. So I...

...think the raiders are definitely not getting enough recognition for what they're doing. They're just very talented. They're actually pretty good on the defensive side of the ball as well, probably better than what you would expect, but more on the offensive side they're absolutely killing it. They pump the broncos thirty seven to twelve. That's why they're making this list of comprehensive win over a division rival. But for the season they're eight. They have the eight most total points, seventh most rushing yards, second highest scoring percentage per drive. So each drive they have the second highest percentage out of any team in terms of chance of scoring. Was a bad explanation, but basically just means they're highly efficient offense. I think they average like the third longest drives. So car, although he's not going down field too often, he's just marching the boys up. Jacobs and Davante book are getting it going on the ground and at the moment they're looking like a pretty hard team to stop. On the offensive side, it looks like you're going to have to put up thirty plus to beat them. They've got a big game against the chiefs this week. It's obviously going to be tough for them, the chiefs coming off the BIB, but they did beat them last time. But after this they've got the after that match they've got the Falcons and the jets, than the colts, than the chargers, than the dolphins, than the broncos. So they're six and three. You'd Imagine Eight and eight will get you to the playoffs, maybe nine and seven to be sure. So that means they've only got to win three of those matches and there's at least four or five winnable games in there. So I think very rosy times at the moment for Los Vegas and I'll talk about them in my predicted playoff bracket in a little bit. Now time for my losers of the week. My start. I'm going to start with the big name, Russell Wilson and the Seattle seahawks. They've gone from NFC west winning locks to they're not even guaranteed to make the playoffs anymore. Like I still think they will and I'll talk about that in the next section, but at this point they've lost three of their last four matches. They've lost to the cardinals, the bills and the rams, who are all three good teams. Button they're now third and the NFC west and they have negative head to head records against their rivals in their division. So it looks like that. It looks like they're still probably I don't know if they are the best team of that division anymore, but I think they're still going to win it personally. But they're definitely a lot more flawed than we thought. Their offense, as soon as it doesn't put up thirty five points, they lose. Basically, Russell Wilson, his MVP hopes in the last month of been uked pretty strongly for me. He's not really in the conversation anymore unless he turns it on the last six weeks. But he's now throw on seven interceptions in four matches. He's been sacked eleven times and two weeks. So that can sucking. Getting sacked as a hard start, because there's so many different very bills, your receivers might not be getting open, you might be holding onto the ball...

...too long or your own line might suck, and it's probably a combination of all three of those. So that's worrying for the Olne for the offense. Sorry, and he's been forced to rush it a lot more, which is probably another suggestion that the receivers aren't getting open all the Olnees not holding the pocket long enough. I think it's been rushing it like seven, seven to eight times a game the last couple matches. Huge game against the cardinals this week on Thursday night football. Usually Thursday night football is pretty irrelevant, but this is a big one. They've got an easy month after this. As I mentioned before. They play the AFC east, I think was saying that, or the NFCE. Sorry, but they've have a lot of easy games coming up in the next month, will even the next six weeks really, except for the divisional games of the end. So if they can win this game they're right back on track. They're probably going to be at number one, number two, number three seed in the NFC. But if they lose this one, all of a sudden they will be a win behind the cardinals and they will have lost four out of their last five. So huge game for the seahawks. I I'll talk about my predictions at the end, but I reckon there are a good chance of bouncing back here, because I can't see Wilson having too many shockers in a row because he's a high quality court quarterback. My next loses are the Baltimore Ravens. They've probably been in the losers section a lot this season, but I've got to say the Patriots to blow this game. I don't think they're getting enough credit. I think people are just going straight to bagging out the ravens. So well done to the Patriots, but yeah, they're now the ravens are now not even guaranteed to make playoffs, which is unheard of. If you's told me that week three or something. The now level on six and three with the dolphins. The rage is the Browns, the cults and the Titans. So yeah, definitely not even locks at this point. I would still say they're a good chance of making it, but they don't have the easiest fixture to come. They've got the titans this weak up leave and they've obviously got to still play the time the steelers in the browns in their division there at the moment the second last and total passing yards last year they were twenty seven. So it's probably not as bad as it sounds. But this is the clear fault in their team. It's all good if you have a great rushing quarterback and a great rushing game in terms of your running backs, but if you can't move the ball at all in the air, it's okay if it's just mediocre, if it's average in the league. And then your combined that was your great rushing game. You've got a great offense, but at the moment the passing game is so bad it's making it hard for the rushing game to work as well. But the problem is the rushing gems on even that great either at the moment. It's a wet game against the Patriots. was like monsoon in the second half, so you'd expect there to be a lot of rushing yards against the bad run defense in the Patriots this year they had their third least rushing out of the season and last week they their secondly. So yeah, worrying...

...times of the Ravens, especially on the offensive side. The defense is still playing great, but their offense is just not scoring enough points at the moment for them to win games and they've got to turn it around fast because before they know it they lose a couple games in the next three weeks and they are genuinely behind the April making the wild card spots, let alone pushing for higher honors which they would have been aiming for in the preseason. So they've got a lift. A lot of Lamar's getting a lot of flak, but I don't think he's actually been that bad. I just think their offense as a holes it's been pretty bad. My final loser of the week is the Chicago bears. I think they've probably been similar to the Ravens. Been in the losers quite a lot last month, but they lost a massive divisional match up to the Vikings this week on Monday night football. Huge wild card implications as well. Both teams aren't going to win the division with the packers in great form, but yeah, they would. Whoever finishes higher out of the bears and the Vikings has a good shot of getting that third wild card in the NFC conference. Will the I just said the NF conference conference, but the NFCD. Yeah, the defense is playing so well and it's just frustrating US talking to it with Pilch last night. That goes our loyal guest who can't make it today. But they've just got like their defenses in premiership window. If they do somewhat decent offense, they would genuinely be super bowl contenders. Head of how could their defenses, but their offense is so bad and so far away from being good, like I don't know what they're going to do moving forward. At the moment is just stale, like they're so boring to watch. They don't get any yards on the ground, they struggle to get anything going in the air and I'm honestly just sick of watching them. They just can't score enough points to win. Their defense consistently holds teams to under twenty five points and they struggle to put up more than fifteen. They've lost four in a row, so they started at five and one and they're now five and five. Folds had a hundred and six yards in the air with an interception. He did look hurt and he did get stretched off in the last quarter. They're going to the by this week and true Biscay was injured going into the last game, so it's going to be interesting to see what happens the other side of the by. It wouldn't really shock me if true Biscay players, if folds is still bit injured, but who knows what's going on with the true biscy's injury either. Yeah, the team for the team with such a bad air game, they're rushing game is equally bad. They have had under a hundred rushing yards as a team for the seventh consecutive game on Monday night football, and yet they just don't get much going. Their own lines apparently being destroyed by injury, but it's just not playing well at all. And they've got the packers after their by which is going to be tough. Then after that they've got a nice schedule home, but they're going to have to lift their form. Really they're not going to beat many team scoring thirteen points like they did against the Vikings, who aren't even an...

...exceptional defense this year. So they've definitely got a lift. I would not put a line through them yet, at in terms of playoff contention, but they've got a lift. They're likely going to be sitting at five and six after the packers game and they're probably going to have to win three or four of their last five. But with that defense anything's possible. But they've got some serious thinking to do over the buy about that offense and how it's been operating. That's it for the winners and losers. Now on to my predicted playoff bracket. This is a new segment last week, so we're going to each week we're going to update our predicted playoff brackets and we're going to talk about the changes. And while we've made those changes, first of all, in the NFC, mines looking pretty similar actually. I've still got the packers of the number one seat. Still got the Seahawks as the number three see, despite looking shaky at the moment. Similarly, I've still got the eagles in the number four seat. I still think they're slightly better than the giants. One change I have made, which is strange after the week that's just happened with drew brees getting injured. But this week I'd used to playoff predictor so I went through every game this season and predicted it. I've actually got the saints winning the NFC now, not the Bux, the NFC south. Sorry, and I've got the bucks now the fifth seed stead of the saints. So that just to swap. They're still got the cardinals and the sixth seed. And I said it last week, the bears with my number seven, but I said if the vikings beaten this week, it's probably going to swap, and I do have them swapping. I've now got the vikings in seventh and they are tied. They're making it over the rams based on strength of victory, who are going to finish an eighth according to my current predictions. So a few changes there. The Vikings. They look it wasn't a pretty win against the bears, but it was a big win for them. I think they're going to make the playoffs now. But I think everyone, including myself, a probably underrating the brams a little bit. They've had a tough fixture and they've done pretty well. They're on the same record as the cardinals and the SEAHAWKS and they've had a few big wins and no one really seems to take notice just because they don't really light it up like the cardinals or the seahawks do, but they've been good, so you probably should respect them a little bit more in terms of the playoff conversation. But I just think the Vikings and the bears have it easier fixture. So I still think one of them is going to make it and for me it's the Vikings. This week. But yeah, in terms of the saints, it's going to be interesting to see how they deal with post drew brees life for the next three or four weeks. I don't actually think it's going to did them too much with how could that defense is playing at the moment and we saw last week the saint last year, the saints when undefeated when Teddy Bridge water stepped in for breeze. So I don't think there's going to be too much disconnection there with Winston coming in or Taysom Hill or whatever they do. I think their fixtures very, very kind to them in this time of injury. So yeah, I've got the saints piving the bucks now. But yeah, I still like the seahawks and eagles. But another loss this week or in the...

...coming two weeks then things might start to change there for me. But that's what I've got happening in the NFC now. In terms of the AFC, I've got the steelers on top now. I had the chiefs on top last week, but I've now got the steels on top. Don't really know why I had the chiefs on top last week. I just think the steel is they've got a fairly easy run home. I don't really see them losing to anyone, if only like maximum, they're going to lose one game, I reckon from here on in. Like I don't think they're that Gould to be honest. I I can't really see a world where the steels when the playoffs the super bowl at the moment, but they did look pretty good on the weekend against the Paul Bills Team. So that means I've got the chiefs the second seed. Interestingly enough, this is another thing, like the saints of the Bucks. You wouldn't expect it, but I've done a lot of predicted this week instead of just going off the top of my head. I've actually now got the bills winning the AFC sinstead of the dolphins like I did last week. So the bills are my number three seed. They did lose to the cardinals, but I think that's a pretty good result, losing to the cardinals to a Hail Mary at the very end. The Dolphins, they did win against the chargers, but their defense is kind of carrying and carrying them at the moment. But nothing against the dolphins. I think they'll make the playoffs. Last week I had the fifth seats. The Ravens. I've still got them there, but another week. If they lose to the minds this week, then all of a sudden I have to reconsider that one. And then in seventh spot, rather than the colts, even though they had a big win against the Times, I've actually got the raiders, who comprehensively whipped the broncos. I just think the raiders they've got an easier run home than the colts and I like the fact that they can put up, you know, thirty plus points against anyone, whereas the colts kind of rely, similar to the bears, on limiting their opposition to twenty or less points. So That's my new playoff prediction bracket. Let Me Know Yours and the comments down below or, if you're listening, D me on Instagram if you disagree. That moves us into our third and final section. Well, we've got a fourth section of game predictions, but our third analysis section of week ten the weekly awards. So offensive players of the week. I've actually gone three running backs here. My number three was Josh Jacobs. A hundred and thirty six yards from scrimmage, two touchdowns. He's second a hundred plus or yard rushing game in three weeks. So he's really starting to hit form after a few lean weeks. They're, a month ago, instrumental in that huge win over the Bron because that I keep talking about. Him and Devante book are starting to form a pretty good partnership on the ground and yeah, they're looking pretty dangerous the raiders on in both the air and on the ground. My number two was Ronald Jones. He stats obviously got carried by that ninety eight yard touchdown or whatever it was. Let leaped away from the defense. You could...

...see him looking into the big screen and he was like lifting up his heels when he could see someone coming. It was pretty smile actually, but he had a hundred ninety eight yards from scrimmage. He did have a fun bill, but I overlooked that one. And Yeah, he was back into the action this week. He obviously the bucks broke the record last week for the least amount of carries ever rushing attempts, and this week he had twenty four touches. So big week for Ronald Jones after having less than fifteen touches in his last three matches can consecutively. Big reason why they got the win over the panthers. But obviously Tom Brady played pretty well as as well. So yet and then my number one. It's boring, but scoring three touchdowns like like he does a lot. Alvin Komara to rushing, one receiving. He actually got stopped on the ground here and they had fifteen yards from mate carries, but eighty three hours from seven catches, just under a hundred yards from scrimmage. But, as I mentioned before, the three touchdowns a huge reason why they got up over the forty nine is, even though breeze did go down at halftime, along with that defense. Kamar and that defense really help them get over the line there and have them in a prime spot going into the playoffs. And once again I'm expecting some huge stat lines coming up from Kamara and the next month. I think with breeze and all the players coming back from injury, they were starting to expand their offense and it was going to hurt Kaumara are stat line. But I think now that they've got Winston, I think they might simplify the game plan for him. or I hope not because it will be fun to see Jamis playing something sophisticated. But I reckon he might just do a lot of dropdowns to Kamara or just hits lants with Thomas. So they're my top three offensive players at the week. Honorable Mentions go to Niheim hines, deandre swift, Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford. Mark has vound it, there's scantling and Deandre Hopkins. They were all pretty awesome as well, but huge week for the running backs in tough conditions all over the country. It seemed the passing games weren't as on, so the rushing games got a good work out. That's why my top three role running backs, offensive rookie of the week, I've gone with t higgins. He has had a hundred fifteen yards receiving against an outstanding steelers defense. He had one touchdown as well. He's fast getting growing a seriously strong bond with Joe Burrow that he loves Tyler Boyd as well, but Higgins and Boyd, they're starting to become a dynamic duo on offense. And yet he's really I think he's going under the radar a little bit just because the bangles aren't all that relevant. Apart from borrow being, you know, one of the biggest names, like draftees of all time, the amount of hype he came into the League with. That's all the only reason why anyone pays any attention to the bangles, but tea higgins is definitely going under the radar. It's having an incredible season. Honorable Mentions have got to go to Justin Jefferson, deandre swift,...

...who I mentioned before, and Tonio Gibson and tour also played pretty decent. To steree side. To win over the charges defensive player of the week, I've actually given it to two people. I've gone the rams. cornerback pairing of Darius Williams and Jalen Ramsey huge reason why the rams got up over the seahawks. They held metcalf and lock it to just seven catches and ninety four yards. Seems like quite a lot of yardage, but considering what these two can pump out, anything under a hundred is insane. If you shut those two down, all of a sudden they're receiving options don't look as spicy. Obviously David Moore's pretty decent. They've got a few tight end options. But yet if you shut those two down, put a little bit of pressure on Russ and that Oline, all of a sudden they don't look as invincible, and that's what the rams did. Ramsey played in man coverage on metcalf most of the night. Metcalfs only two catches came in zone coverage. Ramsey let us know that in his press conference. So Ramsy just asserted himself once again as one of the League's top cornerbacks and showed us why you got paid all that money. Darius Williams also he's bit of a lesser known player, but he had two interceptions defended three passes as well. He also had an outstanding game. So yet the rands quarterbacks pairing of Williams and Ramsey had an absolute nail. Will Not a nail, how an absolute bawling don't even know what I'm saying this point. Had an absolute blast out there. Just an update on my votes rankings. So I do a ten to one votes every week for the quarterback, wide receiver, running back and tight end. I'm also doing it for the defensive positions, but I'm a bit behind on those ones at the moment. In the quarterback rankings I've got Aaron Rodgers on fifty three votes. Kirk cousins actually in the second just because of his efficiency he's on thirty nine votes. Patrick Mahomes is on thirt in three, thirty seven votes, Russell Wilson in fourth on thirty votes, Tom Brady in fifth on twenty eight votes, and then to rund out the top ten, we've got rivers, town of Hill, Murray, Jackson and Watson, so some interesting names in their running backs. Alvin Camars clearly leading them on fifty two votes, down and cook second on thirty seven. Josh Jacobs is now up into the third on twenty eight votes. Derrick Henry and James Robinson are tied fourth on twenty three votes. Two rand out of the top ten. Christian McCaffrey's in there despite only playing a handful of games. Aaron Jones, Zeke Elliott, girly and Chub round out the top ten wide receivers. Davante Adams is up there on the top along with Rogers, the two Green Bay boys leading those two positions. He's on thirty five votes. Then Justin Jefferson is in the second, which is a surprising one, but he's probably going a little bit unsung like t higgins is. He's on twenty four votes. Then tyree kills twenty three votes. Lock at metcalf fourth and fifth, and then to...

...round out the top ten, we've got hopkins, Ridley, feel and Jones and chark. And then the tight ends. Or there's not much going on here, but Kelsey is absolutely leading the pack by and Mile, almost doubling second place. He's I'm fifty five votes. Johnny Smiths on Thirty Votes, Rob Gronkowski is now up to twenty nine votes, Mark Andrews Twenty Seven Votes, Darren Waller Twenty four votes, and then to round out my top ten, I've got Howkinson, Cook, kidd'll Tonyan and Graham. Or that's probably not great podcast entertainment just reading that off, but that's what we're going to deal with. Or right now time for our week eleven predictions. I'm going to go through some of the matches of the week. Actually, let's just go through all of them. Why not? It's just me here today and I've got no stat questions, so we'll roll through this. Thursday night football. Arizona in Seattle. I think Arizona are definitely the form team going into it, but I'm actually going to go the Seattle bounce back. I think there their offense can't really have to bad games in a row, Kennet. It's that there's that much talent in the receiver and quarterback position. So I'm going to say the city seahawks when a shootout, but it's going to be interesting to see how they restrict the cardinals offense because it's going to be hard seeing the cardinals score anything less than, you know, thirty five points against them at the moment. They're moving into the Sunday their Games Cincinnati in Washington, or I'd like to say Washington, but I'll give it to the bangles. I think they've been underrated this year. They've had a tough draw, so I'll give them the win there, but it's going to be tough with their running defense stopping that Rut Washington run game. Saints play host to the Falcons. I'll give it to the saints. Still is away at the JAGS. steelers. Patriots a way to the Texans. That's actually a big game. Will Not a big game in terms of significance, but it's a close one. Or that's Toff, that's toime. I'm going to give it to the Texans. I think they're passing game will provide too many issues for the Patriots. Eagles with the browns. I'll give it to the browns. The Eagles need to hit forms soon, otherwise the giants will steal that playoff spot from them. But yeah, I'm giving it to the browns at the moment to push them further into that mix. For the wild cards, the lines at the panthers, or I'll give it to the lions, just because there's a bit of an injury cloud over Teddy Bridge. Order at the moment tightens at the Ravens. That's tough because I can definitely see a world where the times come out and win this. The Ravens Rush Defense is actually understatedly bad. Or but now I've got to go the Ravens. I can't see the time scoring too many points against that Raven's defense. So I'll go then jets at the chargers. I'll say the charges finally get a win. The dolphins at the broncos. I think this is a danger game for the dolphins with...

...a good broncos defense, but I back the dolphins defense to limit the broncos enough so that they get the win there. The cowboys at the Vikings. Look, you've just got it back in the Vikings run game. I think down and cook will go huge. The packers of the colts. The cults are in great form. I could see them winning this. But I'm going to be boring and back in the packers. Even against one of the best defenses in the COMP I think they're off. The colds will struggle to restrict the packers to not, you know, scoring thirty points. Chiefs at the raiders. I'm going to go the chiefs, once again boring and the rams. That the buccaneers or that's stuff. I could definitely see the rams winning that, but I'm going to go the bucks. They need a bounce back in prime time.
