Grinding Ax Pigskin and Pucks Sunday: FREE NFL Picks, NY Rangers Pride

FREEHOLD, NJ –  There are some great games on the NFL docket today. Football fans were treated to some tasty Thanksgiving Day stuffing as the Raiders & Cowboys served up an overtime game for the largest regular season viewership in thirty one years! Over 38 million gobbled up an exciting game between two of the world’s most popular franchises. Sunday will roll out some desert for those still craving pigskin. Let’s get to today’s docket; FREE NFL Picks, Rangers Pride

FREE NFL Picks

Eagles vs Giants-  Both teams have been playing better defense lately,  so look for turnovers to make a difference in this one. Something tells me that Danny Dimes Jones finds a way to pull this one out in front of an enthusiastic Big Blew crowd. Jalen Hurts will win the turnover contest but not the game. Philadelphia gets thumped in the Meadowlands dump!  Giants 24 Eagles 21

Battle of the Also-Rans
Chasing the Trophy

Steelers at Bengals-  If Cincinnati is able to limit Najee Harris’s yards to seventy or less, pressure will rest on Big Ben Roethlisberger to find his receivers to have a shot. Joe Burrow passing to JaMarr Chase will draw lots of attention so look for Tyler Boyd to get mostly single coverage. The problem Burrow will have comes with the return of TJ Watt. This guy is simply disruptive to opposing offenses.  Joe Mixon should get more carries if the Bengals can score early and that would be the difference in this AFC North Showdown. The Bengals need a W to stay in the race with the Ravens.  I’m banking on Burrow playing in front of his home crowd. Bengals 28 Steelers 27 

Mike Vrabel takes on former coach Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.  Can Ryan Tannehill defeat a solid Patriots defense that appears to know what the opposition is doing. Haha . The running game will be the difference in this one. Patriots will prevail in a game not as close as you may be thinking. Mac Jones continues his maturation process . Patriots 34 Titans 24

Angry Ward longs for a Minnesota Vikings winning streak with a big win over  Snatch and Grab City’s  49ers . Can Curt Cousins avoid being crushed by Nick Bosa? Will San Francisco take advantage of a less than stellar Vikings run defense? This battle of five and five teams will end with the Norsemen pillaging and murdering Jimmy Garoppolo and his crew. Look for Justin Jefferson to put together another amazing effort. Vikings 27  49ers 24

Here We Come!

Rangers Pride

I am damn proud of what the New York Rangers are becoming.  They not only embarrassed the Cheesy Bruins on Black Friday, they looked like the tougher team! Watching Chowda heads look bewildered was uplifting . The Blueshirts are climbing the points board and while I believe they are about a year away, they have the ability to upset anyone in the NHL.

Feel free to toss in your two cents and make sure to come back tomorrow for MTM’s  resident soccer guru, José Mourinho’s protege Junoir Blaber.
