The Monday Night Mush: Week 5

Another week, another crappy Monday Night Football game. The NFL ratings are down and tonight will be no different. The Panthers are without some real key guys like Cam, Jonathan Stewart and “Big Mike” Michael Oher. The Bucs are down a few running backs with Doug Martin still out and now Charles Sims on IR. They’ll be going with Jacquizz Rodgers as their lead back (and I need him and Vincent Jackson to catch like 4 TDs each in one of my fantasy leagues cause I’m getting my shit kicked in) and it should just be kind of an ugly game. The line has Carolina -5.5 at home despite all their injuries.

Honestly, that really tells you how bad Jameis Winston and the Bucs have been. A lot of people (dumb people) had Jameis as an MVP candidate and the Bucs as a dark horse this year. That isn’t going well. Carolina will be going with Derek Anderson at QB tonight who isn’t a dumpster fire but that’s about all I can say about him. I don’t like either of these teams to do anything great tonight and I’ll be paying attention to the Sox game but I gotta pick so I’ll go with Tampa Bay to keep it close and maybe even sneak a win.

The Pick: Tampa Bay +5.5
