Mr. Peebles took a beating this weekend, losing each and every pick he made. Also, since he bets his own picks, he loss a substantial chunk of money (thanks Patriots 😉 ) on what was supposed to be another Steeler win during Sunday Night Football. Unfortunately, it wasn’t: QB Tom Brady of the Patriots was on fire, and guided his team to score 39 points, including one touch down of his own. The Steelers, on the other hand, were miserable. Going into the 4th quarter, they had 3 – yes, just 3 points – on the board, but to their credit were able to add 23 more within the last few minutes of the game to attempt to save face. Alas, their efforts were in vain, 39-26 Patriots in a stunning loss.
Suffice to say, Mr. Peebles was definitely upset with the Detroit Lions, too. After this weekend, the lions are now 2-7, that seventh loss attributed to a boring 12-10 slog against the Buffalo Bills, the league’s punchline for any football jokes. Why did the Lions choose such a crappy team to lose to? Why not lose to the Falcons or Eagles 12-10? At least you could say you kept pace with one of the better teams in the league. Sadly, the Bills earned their first victory at the both and Lions’ and Mr. Peebles’ expense, which in all honesty will probably be their one and only triumph this season.
Mr. Peebles also bet on Monday Night Football, even though he didn’t make an official pick for the game. He took the Eagles and won a little cash, watching Michael “The Prick” Vick aid his team in an amazing victory over the Washington Redskings, 59-28. Towards the end of the game it was literally like target practice for the Eagles, who racked up the highest point total of the weekend, if not the last month of NFL football. The Eagles’ 6-3 standing now puts them at 2nd place in the AFC, in great position to look towards the post season.
