FANTASY FOOTBALL: THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS (WEEK 3)
THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS (WEEK 3)
BEAST DOME NATION.
*I WILL BE LIVE IN BEAST DOME CHAT FROM 5-5:30pm PST*
A division rivalry against two teams that nobody would care about watching, unless it was on Thursday Night Football. Or you owned Odell Beckham Jr. in Fantasy Football. This is a matchup against two teams that have no business saying the word, “Playoffs” yet both teams have a realistic shot of making the playoffs. With the Cowboys losing Dez and Romo to injuries early, and the Eagles playing Football like a High School team in Bel Air. The NFC East is 100% up for grabs.
In this matchup you have a very underrated run Defense in the Washington Redskins who will force Eli Manning to throw the ball more times than he probably should. When Eli throws the ball more times than he probably should, usually bad things happen. Sacks, Turnovers, Fumbles, Washington will be jumping all over the place being one step ahead of the competition. When Washington has the ball, they will ground and pound, ground and pound, with Alfred Morris all day. Then when the defense over commits to stop the run, the play action to get Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed will be wide open down field. When those guys have one-on-one matchups, they usually win them. The Redskins will control this Football game in what will ultimately be another reason for everyone to boo Eli Manning out of the building.
