Week 17

Recommended Posts

Tennessee is favored by a touchdown in Indianapolis, Atlanta by a field goal against Seattle, Houston by six against Jacksonville, Carolina by a field goal in Tampa, and Washington by nine against Dallas. What a horrible slate of games. Is it a coincidence that the college bowls are there to pick up the slack for a rather meaningless Week 17?

I'm surprised by the lines on the Redskins and Titans games. Have the Colts said they're going to rest their starters this week? All indications (so far) are that Dallas will play to win 14 games in a season for the first time in franchise history.

I don't know about anybody else here, but I'll be watching that game, hoping for a Redskins win and trip to Seattle.

I will be at the game, too, but the Cowboys won't be playing their starters much, if at all. TO is out, Pro Bowl C Andre Gurode will be held out as will Pro Bowl CB Terence Newman. Romo is most likely going to go for at most one quarter and then Brad Johnson is taking over. Pro Bowl RB Marion Barber is playing only until he gets 19 yards (for 1,000...as a backup). Pro Bowl TE Jason Witten will try and get the necessary receptions to become the 2nd TE in history with 100 catches. NT Jay Ratliff (just signed to a 5 year extension for big money) wil not not be suiting up. Basically, anybody with any sort of injury is not going to play. Terry Glenn will be making his season debut, however, Wade Phillips has made clear that he won't be playing a full game.

The Cowboys will of course be playing to win. But, they won't be playing the players who have helped them win 13 so far. The names you will hear are Miles Austin, Sam Hurd, Anthony Fasano, Nate Jones, Courtney Brown, Brad Johnson and Pat McQuistan.
