Looking Forward To A Great Day Of Football Tomorrow-Sports Talk With Anthony Bonelli

Before I get to the football games tomorrow, I will briefly talk about the Pinstripe Bowl as I said in my prior post Rutgers and Notre Dame were tied at halftime. As a disappointed Rutgers fan I watched the second half as Rutgers got outplayed in every aspect of the game. They could not get a stop on defense, let alone make a big play on offense. They had 22 yards of total offense in the second half. I believe that says it all.

Anyway getting to the games tomorrow, there are two headline matchups which will decide the winner of two different division.. The first matchup is the Chicago Bears versus the Green Bay Packers, for the NFC North title. The big story in this game, is quarterback Arron Rogers will start. Rogers missed eight weeks with a broken collarbone, and I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that the Packers will be happy to have him back on the field. So I guess you want to know who I am picking to win, well you are going to have to wait for my week 17 NFL picks post.

The other division title game is the Philadelphia Eagles versus the Dallas Cowboys, the big story in this game also centers around a starting quarterback, but this quarterback won’t start Tony Romo won’t start in this game and will reportedly miss the rest of the season if the Cowboys move on to the playoffs. This is a huge story, because not only are the Eagles hot, but the Cowboys are decimated by injuries on both sides of the ball.

The last AFC wild-card spot will also come down to the final week, the scenarios are to complicated to explain but the Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers, and the Baltimore Ravens all have a chance to make the playoffs.

The NFC playoff picture is just as complicated, let’s just say the only team that is in the playoffs right now, are the Seattle Seahawks.

All these scenarios should make for an exciting day of football, enjoy it everyone and stay tuned to abonelli.com for my weeks 17 NFL picks post
