Besides Bryan Cranston's wig clearly breaking bad, all I could think about was the 1960s movie "King Kong vs. Godzilla." Godzilla was supposed to be several-hundred feet tall, and King Kong 35 feet tall -- yet the producers made them the same height in that flick. Not only did I know that was a total sham at 8 years old, but I also knew King Kong was just some goofy actor in a gorilla suit. I might have even seen the zipper.
Now let's get to it!
Elliot Harrison went 10-3 on his predictions for Week 10, giving him a record of 94-52-1 so far this season. How will he fare in Week 11? His picks are below.
Sure, it's a long walk to the game preview, but this might be the most underrated series in the history of the NFL. As in the game I watched last week, the 49ers are hitting the road. To be frank, the season is starting to look lost for the 3-6 Giants, who are 1-2 in the NFC East and too far back to compete with the Eagles or Cowboys. Rashad Jennings is expected back; he'll have to show up big-time in his first game in a month. You know San Francisco is going to pound Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde after seeing Seattle roll up 350 rushing yards on Big Blue last week. This is the kind of game in which Eli Manning must play lights-out if the Giants are to have a chance. #SFvsNYG
C) Who will win the Megatron/Tate vs. Peterson/Cromartie matchup?
While I feel "C" will go to the Lions, "B" could present a problem for Detroit's defense in the desert. Don't underestimate Stanton. In fact, while driving, I heard Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan on SiriusXM NFL Radio discussing that very subject. I nodded my head in agreement ... before switching over to Joe Jackson live in concert. Yes, he sang this song, in case you were wondering. By the way, this matchup represented one of the worst performances from the Detroit offense in 2013. I don't see Matthew Stafford stinking up the joint this time around. #DETvsAZ
