This could be the week.
No, not when my three-week reign of terror at the bottom of the Around the League picks standings comes to a merciful end (though that would be awesome).
Before you point and laugh at me for the mere suggestion that the Browns could muster a massive upset of the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants (at the unfriendly confines of MetLife Stadium, no less), consider this little-known football fun fact: The Browns have defeated the last four Super Bowl champions. Check it out:
The Saints are back in the Superdome for a Sunday night showdown with the San Diego Chargers, the former team of Drew Brees. Brees, coincidentally, could break a record once considered "unbreakable." The consecutive games with a touchdown pass record, in my humble opinion, is a much more impressive mark than the one Brees broke a year ago. The record set by Johnny Unitas has stood for more than 50 years, and was established when the rules regarding the forward pass were much less tolerant than in today's game. This could be a historic night for Brees, and you know he'll be highly motivated to cap the record with a victory.
