NFL: Week 11 ‘Ain’t Happening’ Storylines
ESPN SportsNation' More Likely Game Re-Imagined as FTS' Ain't Happening.
NFL More Unlikely Scenarios
FTS loves SportsNation on ESPN. Colin Cowherd was tolerable for once, and hosts including, Michelle Beadle, Charissa Thompson, Max Kellerman, and Marcellus Wiley make us laugh daily. SportsNation’s games ‘Love or Shove It’, ‘Too Many Angles’, and ‘Verse vs. Verse’ are comedy gold. We are paying tribute to SportsNation’s ‘More Likely Game’ with our Ain’t Happening column. We examine the most intriguing storylines and NFL matchups from this weekend.
Eagles-Cowboys Prediction, Week 11
RB Ezekiel Elliot (suspension), LT Tyron Smith, and LB Sean Lee are out. Dallas’ offensive line and running game controls the clock and sets up play action passes for QB Dak Prescott. Without Elliot and Smith, the ground game is suffering and Prescott has faced more pressure in the pocket. “Dak” was sacked six times by Falcons’ DE Adrian Clayborn in Week 10. We predict Philly will blowout the ‘Boys on Sunday night.
Vikings’ Defense Shuts Down the LA Rams
Minnesota will not stop the LA Rams’ potent offense. ‘It ain’t happening.’ The Rams offensive players Todd Gurley, Cooper Kupp, and Jared Goff are too potent. The Vikings may have the fifth-rated defense in the league, but their stats are inflated from playing the Buccaneers, Browns, and Bears this season. Plus, perennial backup QB Case Keenum will not threaten the Rams’ defense enough to tire them out. We expect the Rams’ pass rush to overwhelm the Vikings offensive line.
Carr Beats Brady
Tom Brady will pass for more yards than Derek Carr. Sorry Derek, ‘It ain’t happening.” The game is in Mexico City, so there is no home-field advantage. Belichick’s game plan will force the Raiders defense to spend more time on the field than Derek Carr. NFL.com projects Tom Brady will score 20 points. Carr is expected to reach 17 points in standard league fantasy football league scoring.
