Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I read a remarkable statistic the other day. In Russell Wilson's two years in the NFL, Seattle hasn't lost a single game by more than 7 points. Meanwhile, the last time Peyton Manning and the Broncos lost by more than 7 was a 10 point loss to New England in Week 5 of the 2012 season. If either team loses by more than a touchdown tomorrow, it'll be a rare event.

Not really as remarkable as you think. More 'small sample size' than anything else. If you go, on average, 13-3 or 12-4 every year, how many opportunities do you HAVE to lose by more than 7? Lose a couple close games, and you can drag that stat back quite a ways.

Did a 2-second search of the Patriots scores, just as a reference point for another winning team. Last time they lost by more than 7 in the regular season was October of 2011, lost by 8. November of 2010 was the last legit beatdown, lost by 20 to the Browns.

There WERE the AFC title game in 2012 and 2013, (28-13 and 26-16), but the point is that it's rare right until it's not. And with small sample size, you can draw lots of bad conclusions. And in your final game of the year, someone's gonna lose, so guarantees another shot for someone to lose by more than 7.

Hell, the stats show that each team wins about 85% of their games every year, including playoffs. Regardless, someone's gonna lose

Rooting for the Seahawks, but I still think the Broncos take it 35-27.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

For me, the magic number is 24. If Denver scores more than 24, they win. Less, they lose. They've been held to only 20 only once this season, which is an unreal stat.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Rooting for the Broncos because of Manning the Greater (and I'm so sick of Giants fans saying Manning the Lesser is a better quarterback because KISS THE RINGS), but their defense is really banged up -- if San Diego had started running on them earlier than the fourth quarter, the divisional round game would have been very interesting. So I honestly think the Seahawks will take it ... which will make everyone in my company's Seattle office even more insufferable than they already have been over the past few weeks.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I expect the Broncos to win with a score similar to their two playoff games (24-17 and 26-16).

Seattle's defense will absolutely slow down Denver's offense- no way they'll be scoring 40 or 50 points. But Denver has too many legitimate targets to be stopped completely and they'll put some points up. On the flip side, Seattle's offense flows through Lynch. Denver's defense has a low ranking, but that is largely due to poor performances against the pass. With one or two single-game exceptions, the Broncos have been exceptional against the run all year. And as a whole unit, they've played much better over the last 4 or 5 games (especially if you take out the the 4th quarter vs SD where Jammer was inflicted on the world and the 4th quarter vs NE where the "prevent" defense was inflicted on the world).

He didn't fucking rape a puppy on live tv, he just gave an emotional interview. There's nothing for him to redeem himself from.

Although he certainly put the stakes high for himself not to look like an idiot tonight...

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I'm going for the Broncos. I'll say 28-14.

I hope Manning throws a couple TD's over Sherman.
