NFL against the spread picks: The most disrespected 11-3 team (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Friday, 19 December 2014
Another quarterback injury has changed the perception of the Arizona Cardinals again, at least in the betting line. The Cardinals are the biggest underdogs ever for an 11-3 team, going back to when it was first tracked in 1980, according to OddsShark.com . Arizona is an eight-point underdog to the Seattle Seahawks, according to Yahoo Pro Football Pick 'em lines. They're a huge underdog even though they're at home. There haven't been too many teams that have been exactly 11-3, and even fewer that have been underdogs at all, so the sample size isn't tremendous, but the line is telling. [ Join FanDuel.com's $2M Week 16 fantasy league: $25 to enter; top 17,475 teams paid ] Nobody expects the Cardinals to win with third-string quarterback Ryan Lindley against a Seahawks' pass defense that has been stifling the past few weeks. Never put anything past the Cardinals, who have overcome numerous injuries to already clinch a playoff berth, but this task seems to be a bit much. And with a win, the Seahawks would pull even with the Cardinals and clinch the tiebreaker, so they’d have the inside track for the NFC West title. All these injuries are not really fair for the Cardinals. No team is fully healthy this time of the NFL season, but the Cardinals’ plight has been tougher than most. That won’t matter to the Seahawks, who are trying to repeat as Super Bowl champions. And I can’t pick Lindley and the Cardinals either. If Bruce Arians can muster enough points with a quarterback who has a 46.8 career rating to beat the Seahawks, he’s an even better coach that we realize. It’s unfortunate for the Cardinals that they have to play such a big game so shorthanded, but the NFL isn’t always fair. Here are the rest of the Week 16 picks: Jaguars (-3.5) over Titans ( picked Thursday ): Moving on. Redskins (+7.5) over Eagles: Seems like a letdown spot after such a big game for Philadelphia last week, though the Eagles might be focused coming off a loss. Either way, it’s nice to have Saturday NFL football back. 49ers (-1) over Chargers: The Chargers’ offensive explosion at Baltimore seems to be an outlier. It doesn’t surprise me at all to hear that Philip Rivers is dealing with injuries. He doesn’t look right lately and neither does San Diego.

DeSean Jackson says Jeremy Maclin is the only receiver the Eagles have (NBC on Yahoo Sports)
User Rating: / 0
Tuesday, 16 December 2014
The Philadelphia Eagles may miss DeSean Jackson, whether they are willing to admit it or not, but the feeling is not mutual. With the Birds on a collision course for Washington this week, Jackson wasted no time fanning the flames of his personal rivalry with his former employer. Following his team’s sixth consecutive loss on Sunday to drop to 3-11 on the season, the three-time Pro Bowler was quick to dismiss any notion he misses Philly, telling reporters, “There’s no point in living in the past.” It wasn’t enough for Jackson to say he’s happy where he is, though. The brash wideout had to take a shot at the Eagles receiving corps left behind in the wake of his release—all of them except for Jeremy Maclin, that is, as reported by Jeff McLane for The Inquirer . "They still got Maclin. I'm happy for my boy. He's been dealing all year," Jackson said. "But it's Maclin and that's all they got." Eagles fans would be hard-pressed to disagree. Maclin is a top-10 receiver in the NFL this season in terms of yards (7th) and touchdowns (t-8th), but there’s been little consistency behind him. Riley Cooper has shouldered the brunt of the criticism, the supposed No. 2 wideout’s production falling way short of last year’s breakout campaign. However, Josh Huff and his untimely miscues have drawn scrutiny as well, while fellow rookie Jordan Matthews has had his moments, but is not yet making an impact on a weekly basis. Do the Eagles miss Jackson’s ability? There’s no arguing the receiving corps would be deeper and more talented overall with Jackson than without. If nothing else, we would stop hearing about how Cooper has been such a letdown after every game, as if that’s supposed to be some kind of surprise. A lot of people would tend to agree with Jackson’s statement on some level, but Maclin apparently was not one of them. He posted what would appear to be a direct response to his former teammate on Instagram, and as much as Cooper has been a bust and Matthews may be learning on the job, it’s difficult to argue with the raw numbers.

DeMarco Murray needs surgery for broken bone in hand (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Tuesday, 16 December 2014
DeMarco Murray, whose workload for the Dallas Cowboys has been a topic of conversation since the first month of the season, has a broken bone in his hand and will undergo surgery, ESPN.com Dallas reports. Murray played the entire game on Sunday night at Philadelphia, helping the Cowboys to a 38-27 win. Murray had 81 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries. ESPN.com’s Todd Archer reported that Murray had a broken fourth metacarpal in his left hand, the long bone that goes from the base of the fourth finger to the wrist. The report said Murray has not been ruled out for this week's game. The Cowboys host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. If he does play, it will be interesting to see if he can perform all of his duties in the passing game with one good hand. Murray has a staggering 351 carries this season, and he has been tremendous for the Cowboys. He has 1,687 yards, which leads the NFL. Dallas took a huge step toward winning the NFC East on Sunday night. The Cowboys are now 10-4 and lead the Eagles by a game in the division. The Cowboys weren’t expected to compete for a division title coming into the season, but Murray’s play has been a main reason they’re in position to win the NFC East. Murray is also scheduled to become a free agent after the season. While his durability has been remarkable, given how many touches he has received, now the Cowboys have to worry if he’ll lose any effectiveness as they are closing in on a playoff spot. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.
