We knew it would come down to Brady versus Manning, right?

First of all, mad props to the San Diego Chargers for hanging tough with the Patriots on Sunday. If the Pats aren’t blowing a team out, they’re playing just well enough to win, and the latter was definitely the case on Sunday. I don’t know about you, but I feel the Patriots won that game because of their defense, not because of “Tom Terrific.” If anything, Brady was “Tom Lethargic” yesterday. If the Chargers had a healthy LT, Gates, and also Rivers, they might have won that game. But it matters little; the Pats dodged a bullet.

Take that notion and how the Giants gave the Pats all they could handle less than a month ago, and I believe the Giants have a puncher’s chance in the Super Bowl.

You really have to tip your cap to the G-Men and their coaching staff. They have played incredibly impressive football.

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
