The Bottom Ten/NFL Week 17

By Gaylon Kent
The Writer's Shack

December 17, 2015

With another #1 team losing, B-10 fans are focusing on what might turn out to be the most exciting race for the Pete Rozelle Award - issued to the NFL's worst division - ever, as the NFC East and AFC South battle it out. With both divisions featuring 6-7 first place teams, B-10 pollsters may be forced to rely on the tiebreaker, which they are sure is lying around here somewhere.
 
Meanwhile, all eyes will be on Jacksonville this week as the Falcons invade, looking to show they are legitimate B-10 contenders.

This week's mess, as the bags charge down the stretch:
 
1.
Tennessee Titans (3-10; lost to NY Jets 30-8) - Defending B-10 champs reclaim top spot with strong, blowout loss, breaking out to 27-0 halftime deficit and cruising from there…24 rushing yards gained, 183 allowed show strong running game still key to B-10 glory…With B-10 race complete chaos, Titans can defend title by losing out…Next Loss: at New England
 
2.
Atlanta Falcons (6-7; lost to Carolina 38-0) - It's tough for a six-win team to make B-10 medal stand, but with current six-game losing skid nobody is playing worse football - week in and week out - than the Falcons…B-10 pollsters "pretty sure" Falcons can become first team "more or less ever" to start season 5-0 and finish on B-10 medal stand...Next Loss: at Jacksonville

3.
San Francisco 49ers (4-9; lost to Cleveland 24-10) - 49ers making late noises, with decisive loss to last week's #1 team…49ers coming on strong, having also lost three (3) of last four (4)…Next Loss: Cincinnati

4.
 Cleveland Browns (3-10; defeated San Francisco 24-10) - With B-10 title there for the losing, Browns blink with most untimely win in franchise history…After three (3) straight home games, Browns staff happy to hit road to avoid distractions of home in what is turning out to be a dogfight for B-10 title…Next Loss: at Seattle
 
5.
Dallas Cowboys (4-9; lost to Green Bay 28-7) - Cowboys in that infrequent, dread state of being in race for both NFL playoffs, B-10 title at same time…Cowboys need help for both, needing to finish 0-3, plus have other teams win to earn B-10 title; win out, have everyone else in division lose, have New Horizons spacecraft reverse course, land on Pluto to make playoffs…Next Loss: NY Jets
 
6.
NFL - Though league-wide .500 winning percentage isn't too bad, two-thirds of league, 21 teams, do not have winning records.
 
7.
AFC South (20-32) - Runaway choice for Marv Levy Broach, symbolic of AFC B-10 divisional supremacy. Indianapolis and Houston have each lost two (2) straight and stubbornly remain tied for first with 6-7 marks…Jacksonville broke a two-game skid with a win last Sunday, are 5-8 and are a game back.
 
8.
San Diego Chargers (3-10; lost to Kansas City 10-3) - Chargers peaking at right time, as offense has put up nine points in three of their last four games and have lost eight (8) of last nine (9)...Chargers so bad they are about to be eliminated from playoff contention for next year…Next Loss: Miami
 
9.
NFC East (22-30) - Easy pick for Ray Malavasi Pin, issued to NFC's worst division…Division so bad 4-9 Cowboys are still in it.
 
10.
Baltimore Ravens (4-9; lost Seattle 35-6) - Ravens throw hat into race for B-10 medal stand, with two-game losing streak…Ravens show strong finishing kick, easily turning 14-6 halftime deficit into type of blowout loss that turns B-10 pollster's heads…Next Loss: Kansas City

The Wife and I went for a walk today and ended up inside a house for rent a block down for us...The house is, at least, 8o years old while 80 years ago occupants would've marveled at the indoor plumbing, it would not be a very functional house right now…The stairs are very narrow and are mostly between two walls and don't have the handrails that become more and more important as you get older…Plus, the only bathroom is on the ground floor, also important as you get older, especially if your sleeping on the top floor and have to negotiate fun house stairs to get there.
The young couple that bought it was out staining the deck and said they've had some calls on it, but nothing has worked out so far…I forgot to ask how much they're asking for it.

Also on the walk we ran into a mom, Becky, out for a walk with her kids…One was a girl scout with an order form The Wife - an old girl scout herself - spotted from more than a block away…We thought it was for cookies, but no, it was for nuts and other assorted stuff like that…The Wife ordered some stuff that was chocolate covered and shaped like daisies, while I ordered some whole cashews, which I dearly love.

When we knocked off work Friday night we didn't know what we would be in store for Monday because our truck was being towed back to the branch…Well, Keith called me today and said we are driving to Town A Monday morning to pick one up that someone from Route 21 is driving up.

This means we will have to be on the road by 6am and ol' Sparrow will miss his now-treasured workout, but I will take the opportunity eat really well...I am almost down a notch on my belt and I am highly motivated to make it so I can get down a couple of more notches.
