That was a frustrating non-cover if you had the Packers. After the two early big plays to Kenny Golladay and Marvin Hall, the Lions offense did nothing the rest of the game. But the Packers had two problems — terrible punt/kick returning, including a fumble and receivers who until the last five minutes simply could not make plays to save their lives.
Week 6 was a mixed bag. I lost my best bet, the Eagles, I lost another Super Contest pick, the Falcons, in part due to a missed PAT, and I went 7-6 overall despite the Dolphins getting me a miracle cover. On the other hand, I’m probably going 5-0 in fantasy, and one of my teams is 31st out of more than 3,000 in the NFFC with the Packers defense going tonight. It could have been worse.
When you’re running cold it’s tough to catch a break. I had the Giants +16.5, and they lost by 21, thanks to defense and special teams TDs. And they had a chance to cover on the last drive, but apparently pass interference doesn’t exist if the ref doesn’t see it on the field. What a pointless rule if they’re never going to reverse a call even when it’s obvious.
What a crazy game. The Seahawks were 1.5-point favorites but couldn’t cover thanks to a dropped two-point conversion, but the Rams couldn’t win thanks to a short missed FG from one of the best kickers in the league. And the Seahawks couldn’t close it out despite getting a turnover with two minutes left.
