If thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one thing SundayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s games reminded me, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not a gambler. (Remember: I offer a disclaimer every week with this where I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t actually claim to know anything about the game itself, I just like writing about it)
I missed Ã¢â‚¬â€œ badly Ã¢â‚¬â€œ on every single one of the games I picked, not just against the spread, but the results straight-up. I got caught up too much in the premise of the Ã¢â‚¬Å“hot team,Ã¢â‚¬Â and forgot that some teams were just flat-out better, and those teams were playing at home.
The one road team to win was the Jets, in what was an upset to everyone but their coach. I have no love lost for the Jets personally as a Dolphins fan, but I respect the style theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re winning with in that theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re spitting in the face of the current football convention.
