This Jose Fernandez Story Is Gut Wrenching And In A Lot Of Ways Eerie.

Been consumed by this horrible story.  This guy had everything, and in a very short amount of time was going to make 100s of millions of dollars.  He had just announced a week ago that his wife was pregnant.  Just so tragic.  The Marlins had decided to push Jose Fernandez’s next start back, so that he would be home, and to try and effect the pennant race.  The move ended up effecting the 24 year old’s life.  Just INCREDIBLE.

 

Hard not to be moved by this.  Gordon could barely keep it together as he was crossing home plate.

 

An amazing and moving tribute to the young athlete.

As I’m getting ready to make this post I came across this SHOCKING news.  Jose Fernandez a top baseball pitcher for the Marlins dies at age 24 in a boating accident.  Absolutely HORRIBLE.  My condolances to his family and friends.

The Denver Broncos visit the Cincinnati Bengals.  I look for the Bengals to bounce back after last weeks division loss.  I’ll take The Bengals -3 1/2.

The Raiders visit the Titans.  The Raiders are the better team in my opinion.  I’ll take The Raiders -1 1/2.

The Cardinals visit The Buffalo Bills.  The Bills are horrible.  I’ll take The Cardinals -4 1/2.

 

The Ravens visit The Jags.    I’ll take The Jags +1 1/2.

 

The Browns visit The Dolphins.  As bad as the The Browns are I don’t think the Dolphins should 9 1/2 point favorites against anyone.  I’ll take The Browns +9 1/2.

 

The Redskins visit The  Giants.  I see this game coming down to a field goal.  I’ll take The Redskins +4.

 

The Lions visit The Packers.  I see The Packers bouncing back at home in a high scoring game.  I’ll take The Packers -6  1/2.

The Vikings visit The Panthers.  I see The Panther continuing to surge after last weeks impressive victory.  I’ll take The Panthers -6 1/2.

 

The 49ers visit The Seahawks.  I think The Seahawks are going to be out for blood after ast weeks loss.  And they are home.  I’ll take The Seahawks -10 1/2.

 

The Rams visit The Bucs.  I think the Bucs are the much more talented team and they are home.  I’ll take The Bucs -3 1/2.

 

The Steelers visit The Eagles.  I think this game will come down to a field goal either way.  I’ll take The Eagles +4.

 

The Jets visit The chiefs.  Another game where I think the line is perfect so I will take the Points.  I’ll take The Jets +3.

 

The Chargers visit The Colts.  The Colts absolutely have to win this game if they want to have any kind of a season.  I see Andrew luck getting it done in a high scoring game.  I’ll take The Colts -1 1/2.

 

The Chicago Bears visit The Dallas Cowboys.  The spread is a little high but I think Dallas is definitely the better team, and Prescott continues to improve and gain confidence.  Hopefully Eliott has learned how to hold onto the ball.  I’ll take The Dallas Cowboys -7.

The Falcons visit The Saints.  I have no feel for this game, so as always in that situation I’ll take the points.  I’ll take The Falcons +3.
