OutOfSight NFL Week ┃13 Top 10 Power Rankings

  1. Philadelphia Eagles (10-1)

Superhuman performances during prime-time games can serve as ultra-fuel in the MVP race. Jalen Hurts showed a huge audience what a difference-maker he can be on Sunday Night Football, breaking Michael Vick’s franchise record for quarterbacks with 157 rushing yards in a 40-33 win over the Packers. Hurts also became the first NFL quarterback since 1950 to record 150 rushing yards, 150 passing yards, and at least two passing touchdowns in the same game. The Eagles nearly made team history as well: Philadelphia rushed for 363 yards, falling just 13 yards short of the 1948 franchise record. Said RB Miles Sanders: “It’s chasing greatness every week.”

2. Kansas City Chiefs (9-2)

On Sunday, the Chiefs were not at their best, but their margin of error was significant against the fading Rams and backup quarterback Bryce Perkins at Arrowhead. The 26-10 victory was decisive despite special teams errors, red-zone miscues, and Patrick Mahomes’ lack of enthusiasm after the game. On Sunday, the Chiefs were not at their best, but their margin of error was significant against the fading Rams and backup quarterback Bryce Perkins at Arrowhead. The 26-10 victory was decisive despite special teams errors, red-zone miscues, and Patrick Mahomes’ lack of enthusiasm after the game. You like the win, but we have a lot to get better at,” Mahomes said, “especially me.” In the fourth quarter, Mahomes threw an interception in the end zone, but he also connected with Travis Kelce for another touchdown. Kelce has established a new career-high with 12 receiving touchdowns on the season, with a whopping six games left to play.

3. San Fransisco 49ers (7-4)

The 49ers are an NFL powerhouse because they can defeat opponents in a variety of ways. Two Mondays ago in Mexico City, we witnessed what the offense is capable of when in rhythm. In a 13-0 victory against the Saints on Sunday, it was the defense’s turn to flex its muscles. During their four-game winning streak, the 49ers have not allowed a single second-half point, with opponents averaging just 10 points per game during that span. In terms of both yards and points allowed, DeMeco Ryans’ squad will enter December as the NFL’s top defense. In their extensive history, the 49ers have never finished a season atop both categories simultaneously. Santa Clara has something special cooking.

4. Buffalo Bills (8-3)

Two games at Ford Field in five days and two victories for the Bills, who appear to be regaining their footing after a turbulent midseason. Thanksgiving’s 28-25 victory was decided by Tyler Bass’ 45-yard field goal in the final seconds, but the winning drive will be remembered for the 36-yard pass from Josh Allen to Stefon Diggs that put Buffalo in scoring position asap. Very few quarterbacks are able to execute such a throw from such a distance, but Allen was able to do so despite a weak elbow that continues to cause him problems. Von Miller exited the game with a knee injury that will sideline him for an indeterminate amount of time. The Buffalo defense will suffer without its closer.

5. Dallas Cowboys (8-3)

There has been a constant barrage of speculation linking Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cowboys, but perhaps “The Boys” would be better off without the renowned wide receiver (even excluding factors related to his recent air-travel mishap). Last Thursday’s 28-20 victory over the Giants was the clearest indication yet that Michael Gallup is regaining his form after offseason knee surgery. CeeDee Lamb continues to play the role of a legitimate No. 1 (with two 100-yard performances in the past three weeks), while a healthy Gallup projects as a highly capable #2 wideout. Why mess with a winning formula?

6. Miami Dolphins (8-3)

Sunday, the Dolphins dispatched the league’s worst Texans by jumping out to a 30-point halftime lead and coasting to their fifth consecutive victory. Here is where things become extremely intriguing for Mike McDaniel and the leaders of the AFC East. Next, the Dolphins will face the red-hot 49ers on the road in Week 13, followed by AFC playoff contenders in the Chargers, Bills, Patriots, and Jets. By the end of December, we’ll have a much better idea of how seriously we should take this team as a Super Bowl contender despite the fact that Miami has annihilated the competition during its easy portion of the schedule.

7. Minnesota Vikings (9-2)

The victory over the Patriots on Thanksgiving night was crucial for the Vikings, who desperately needed to change the narrative following their humiliating blowout loss to the Cowboys four days prior. Justin Jefferson was outstanding.  The Pro Bowl wide receiver finished the game with nine receptions for 139 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets, pushing almost everything beneficial for the Minnesota offense. The greatness of Jefferson makes life so much easier for Kirk Cousins, who was able to silence rumors about his failures in prime-time games until, well, the next time the Vikings play in prime-time. On Sunday, Minnesota can win the NFC North with a victory over the upstart Jets and a loss by the Lions against the Jaguars this Sunday.

8. Cincinnati Bengals (7-4)

The Bengals defeated the Titans in Nashville without the help of Joe Mixon (concussion) or Ja’Marr Chase (hip). As the most difficult portion of their schedule approaches, it is the clearest indication that the defending AFC champions have found their way up to this point of the NFL season. “This is the kind of game that great teams win,” who threw for 270 yards and the to-be game winning touchdown to Tee Higgins in the early in the fourth quarter. Burrow, who was sacked nine times in Cincinnati’s Divisional Round playoff victory over Tennessee January, was sacked only once on this November Sunday. The best news now for Burrow: Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Chase is on track to return for Week 13’s matchup against the Chiefs.

9. Tennessee Titans (7-4)

The Titans defeat their opponents by imposing their will on them. On Sunday, the Bengals traveled to Nissan Stadium and were the more physical team on both offense and defense in a 20-16 win over the Titans that served as a rematch of a memorable playoff game from January which I spoke of earlier. A penalty for unnecessary roughness by offensive lineman Kevin Strong ended the game in an anticlimactic manner, but the Titans should focus entirely on how to get ELITE running back Derrick Henry going against a potential playoff opponent from the AFC they very well could see again down the road. Henry rushed for a lackluster total of 38 yards on 17 carries on Sunday and has averaged just 2.75 yards per carry in his last two contests against vs the Bengals. King Henry was locked down by their defense a few days ago, and Henry must be effective for the Titans to achieve their ultimate goal.

10. Baltimore Ravens (7-4)

John Harbaugh’s Ravens appear to have a fatal flaw, the inability to finish off opponents. The Baltimore Ravens have lost four games this season despite holding a lead of at least nine points in the second half of each of those four contests. The most recent defeat may have been the worst, as the defense was torn apart by Trevor Lawrence on a last-second touchdown drive before allowing a two-point conversion to seal a 28-27 loss. Harbaugh described it as “out of character,” and the Ravens did not exactly shine in Week 12. Look for the Ravens to bounce back this Sunday vs my Broncos unfortunately and get back to their winning ways.

OSU HC Believes Buckeyes should still be in CFB Playoff Consideration

Ohio State lost to the Wolverines by a score of 45-23 on Saturday, losing “The Game” for the second consecutive season. The loss may have also ended the team’s chances of making the College Football Playoff as well.

OSU HC Ryan Day

Ohio State, which entered the week as the No. 2 team in the College Football Playoff rankings, must hope for a final stretch of chaos. The Ohio State Buckeyes will conclude the regular season with an 11-1 record, no shot at a conference title, and no chance to enhance their resume.

After the loss, coach Ryan Day was asked if he believes his team should still be considered for the College Football Playoff and he said this,

“Well, I mean, I thought we were in it. We
were fighting there at the end, and
obviously it got out of control down the
stretch. But it wasn’t like we were
outmatched in terms of just overall play, I
don’t think. So yeah, as we get to those
decisions, you have to look at the body of
work and what we’ve done. We’ve got a lot
of good pieces on this team. We came up
short today, but I think if we were able to
get a shot in the top four, we’d be a
dangerous team.”

Earlier in the season, Ohio State defeated 11th-ranked Penn State and 15th-ranked Notre Dame. They won all of their 11 games by at least two touchdowns as well.

With that being said, Georgia, Michigan, and TCU appear to be in the driver’s seat for College Football Playoff berths if they finish the season undefeated. Ohio State, LSU, USC, and Alabama are also contenders but their chances are slim.

Quite frankly, I believe that they have absolutely no case whatsoever. The Buckeyes were 9 point favorites, Michigan’s best player got hurt and they also had the “revenge factor” on their side. One of the worst OSU losses I can remember in my lifetime.

Lakers lose despite historic performance from AD

Lakers lose despite historic performance from AD

The Lakers were riding a three-game win streak into Tuesday’s game against the Suns thanks in large part to Anthony Davis’s monster effectiveness recently. The winning streak was put to bed in a 115-105 loss to the Suns tonight, but Davis’ dominant play continued with a line that must be seen to be believed: 37 points, 21 rebounds, five steals, and five blocks. A performance for the Ages

According to NBA Stats & INFO:
Davis is the only player to record a line of blocks and steals since the statistic was introduced in 1973.

This is remarkable to me. Watching the first half of this game, I found myself saying, “same ol’ A.D.” as he wasn’t getting into the paint and forcing downhill action like had been in his three previous performances, instead lingering around the perimeter and taking jump shots (he made two early on, but I thought this was a bad sign). But the Suns were cutting the downhill stuff off, and Davis remained patient while the Lakers somewhat neutralized him by leaving him behind and pushing the pace. 

Until some lanes started opening up on rolls, and in transition, he crashed the offensive glass and got to the free-throw line, which has been a theme of this recent run. By the end, Davis had made 15 of 16 free throws and 11 of 17 shots. He engulfed rebounds all night. He was late to react to a few actions in the paint defensively, or perhaps he was just exhausted by the end of an effort like this, but you can’t ask for more from a guy who is now just the third player in Lakers history to record four straight 30-15 games. He joins some pretty good company.

Latest SI Mock Draft has Cards taking DB with 7th pick

Latest SI Mock Draft has Cards taking DB with 7th pick

After a dreadful 3-6 start to the year, the Arizona Cardinals are virtually assured of having a high pick in the NFL Draft in 2023.

The team is currently expected to draft seventh , but there is still a significant amount of time for that estimate to go either direction.

If the Cards do ultimately do end up with the 7th pick in the 2023 draft, what should they do?

🚨 🚀 New piece out! ⬇️ #RedSea

Many believe multiple quarterbacks will go at the very top of the draft, which would push other positional talent further down the board, where it will be available to teams like the Cardinals.

Despite the fact that outside linebacker, defensive lineman, and offensive lineman are the positions that the Cardinals are most likely to target, the most recent mock draft from Sports Illustrated predicts that Arizona will select Georgia cornerback Kelee Ringo as their first overall pick.

Kelee Jahari-Hale Ringo was a cornerback prospect of the highest magnitude in the 2020 recruiting class. He earned five stars as a prospect as well and  was named an All-American after playing for three years for Saguaro High School, where he played running back. During his senior season, he ran for 712 yards and tallied 13 touchdowns, garnering him the award. During this time, he won the 100-meter and 200-meter races at the AIA DIII state championships.

Ringo played his rookie year in 2020 as a redshirt because he had chosen Georgia over more than 30 other schools that had offered him a scholarship, including Alabama, Ohio State, and Notre Dame. A ruptured labrum is a common injury, especially at the level of the SEC, but the big cornerback had to have surgery to repair it early in his career. This prevented him from playing on the field.

Ringo was honored as a freshman All-SEC selection in the year 2021. During his career, he played in 15 games and recorded a total of 34 tackles, eight pass breakups, and two interceptions. While his first pick came in the game against UAB, his second pick was the one that helped Georgia win their first national title in almost four decades. It was the first time in his career that an interception was returned for a touchdown, and it went for 79 yards. It is anticipated that the cornerback for Georgia will serve as the leader of the secondary for the Bulldogs during the college football season of 2022.

MNF FREE PICK ┊10/31/22 ┊ Week 8

By: DawgHasPicks

10/30/21

MNF FREE PICK ┊10/31/22 ┊ Week 8

The Bengals finally used their full arsenal of pass-catchers last week, allowing Joe Burrow to throw for an astounding 459 yards. The next day, their best receiver goes down. Injuries have sidelined Ja’Marr Chase, who has scored six touchdowns this year and been the recipient of 27 percent of Burrow’s passes. Consequently, we can expect to see a decrease in passing plays and an increase in handoffs, with the bulk going to Joe Mixon. The Browns have also suffered a loss, though not nearly as devastating: TE David Njoku, the teams second leading pass catcher, is also out with an injury. With all of this being said, let’s get to the pick.

A lot of playmakers are going to be out for a Bengals offense that finally was able to break out last week. Losing Ja’Marr Chase is irreplaceable, as he is one of the best playmakers in the world and brings a whole new dynamic to that offense. Ultimately, I would expect a 17-10, 14-10 type of game. Not to mention, the line has already dropped from 47 total points too

THE PICK: U45 Points

Hawks Fall to 4-2 in Close Game vs Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Atlanta Hawks 123-115 on Saturday night to keep their perfect record intact, led by 34-point scorers Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday.

Antetokounmpo had a total of 34 points, 30 of which came after intermission. He also grabbed 17 boards. In addition to his 42 points, Holiday added 12 assists as the Bucks defeated the Hawks, despite a game-high 42 from Trae Young.

“We really just stayed confident,” Holiday stated after the game. “I don’t think we felt any type of pressure. We kind of knew what we had to do. Down the stretch, we did a great job.”

The Hawks called timeout down 118-115 with 23.2 seconds remaining, but before Atlanta could throw the ball inbounds, they were called for an offensive foul by De’Andre Hunter on Wesley Matthews. Matthews and Young collided after Hunter made contact with him.

“The guy basically ran him over,” Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer said postgame. “I don’t know if he’s trying to create some confusion and try to create a call the other way, but good officiating to see it and call it. That’s the kind of thing Wes does to help us win.”

Trae Young certainly didn’t agree with Bud.

“I think the refs got it wrong, but it is what it is,” Young said. “We’ve got to move on to the next one.”

The Bucks were 19-for-29 from the charity stripe, while the Hawks were just 12-for-15. The Hawks didn’t to the free throw line in the fourth quarter, while the Bucks shot 9 of 16 from the line in the last 12 minutes of play.

“We’ve got to be more aggressive getting to the basket. Tonight I thought we settled a lot for the jump shot and the deep ball.” Hawks coach Nate McMillan said postgame.

After Milwaukee’s offensive foul, Holiday stole the ball from Young, and Antetokounmpo dunked it to seal the win.

In his last four games, Antetokounmpo has scored 151 points, the most he has ever scored in a four-game span in his career. The two-time Most Valuable Player is confident that he can improve even more.

“I’m not going to lie to you — I haven’t had that feeling, this feeling I always have when I play big-time games,” The Greek Freak said. “I haven’t had it yet. I don’t think I’m in a rhythm yet. I’m still chasing it. I’m still chasing that feeling.”

For the Bucks, Brook Lopez scored 21 points, while Jordan Nwora added 11.

The Hawks’ scoring was distributed as follows: 21 points from Dejounte Murray, 14 from Hunter, and 11 from Clint Capela.

Despite being down by 10 points with under 10 minutes to play, the Hawks rallied to knot the game at 104 on Young’s 10-footer with 4:36 to go. This was the first time Milwaukee had not led since there were about seven minutes left in the fourth quarter.

To counter Antetokounmpo’s drive and dunk with his left hand, Young buried a 3-pointer from more than 30 feet out with 4:09 left to give the Hawks their first lead since the opening period.

There were only three minutes and fifty-six seconds left in the game when Giannis Antetokounmpo dunked the ball again to give the Bucks the lead for good. Milwaukee went on a 7-0 run to seal the deal.

Postgame takeaways

Atlanta

Atlanta had a 53-19 edge over Detroit in bench scoring in a Friday victory over the Pistons but couldn’t get the same type of production from its reserves Saturday. Milwaukee’s reserves outscored Atlanta’s bench 30-23. … Justin Holiday’s 10 points were a season high. Justin Holiday is Jrue’s older brother. Justin’s younger brother is Atlanta’s Aaron Holiday who scored three points in 24 minutes.

Milwaukee.

After shooting a combined 1 of 11 from 3-point range in victories over Brooklyn and New York this week, Lopez was 5 of 8 from beyond the arc Saturday. He made his first five attempts and had 19 points in the first 19 minutes.

The Hawks next game is Monday in Toronto against the Raptors, while the Bucks go on to play a 2 game series against the Pistons, with the first game being at home Monday as well

NBA Player Suspended for Last Night’s Actions

10/26/22

By: @OOSSports

NBA Player Suspended for Last Night’s Actions

Joe Dumars, the Executive Vice President and Head of Basketball Operations for the Boston Celtics, made the decision today that Grant Williams, a forward for the Celtics, is being suspended for one game without pay for recklessly making contact with a game official. He also had some choice words for the ref as well.

The incident, which occurred with 8 minutes and 58 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of Boston’s loss to the Chicago Bulls by a score of 120-102 on October 24 at United Center, resulted in Williams receiving a technical foul and being ejected from the game.

Williams will serve the serve his one game suspension during the Celtics’ home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers this Friday.

Although it was short, this rookie made his NBA debut COUNT!

After registering 2 DNPs in a row to start his NBA career, Atlanta Hawks head coach Nate McMillian brought in his newest first round pick in a blowout loss to the Hornets. Although he

The Hawks rookie scored five consecutive points in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 126-109 loss to the Hornets at State Farm Arena.

Griffin entered the game at the beginning of the fourth quarter. He began his career with a steal and a three-pointer. He got his second steal by intercepting a PJ Washington pass to Kelly Oubre Jr. and then receiving a pass from John Collins to set up a fast-break layup.

Despite the final score, he impressed superstar PG Trae Young,

“It’s exciting, it’s good,” Ice Trae stated, “He’s gonna have a long NBA career. He’s a sponge to learning new things. He wants to do great every time he’s on the court. It’s a start and he can play too at the same time. I was excited for him.”

Griffin, a first-round pick out of Duke (No. 16 overall), did not play in the Hawks’ first two games of the regular season. A blowout got him into his first game.
Griffin was subbed out at 7:13 left in the fourth quarter and returned with 1:40 remaining.

New Hawk Dejounte Murray also had this to say of AJ Griffin, “Him being ready to go. I don’t think you see that from young guys, not being used to playing right away then being thrown in the fire. So got to give respect to him for being ready to come in and compete at a high level.”

He made another 3-pointer once he returned to finish the game. He ended with eight points and 3 of 4 from the field.
Griffin was brought in by Hawks coach Nate McMillan in pursuit of a spark:

He made another 3-pointer once he returned to finish the game. He ended with eight points and 3 of 4 from the field.
Griffin was brought in by Hawks coach Nate McMillan in search of a spark:

“I was looking for some activity,” said McMillan. “We needed shooting, we couldn’t make any shots and I wanted to give him a try. We put him out there and he was able to knock down a shot. Got him out on the floor to bring some type of energy to that lineup.”

It might have been a short debut, but Griffin capitalized in it. It will be interesting to see the trajectory of his career and what he can ultimately turn into as a player.

After dropping 31 tonight, How close is The King from passing Kareem?

By: OOSSports

After dropping 31 tonight, How close is The King from passing Kareem?

LeBron James set his sights on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the NBA’s current all-time leading scorer, after passing Karl Malone for second place on the career regular-season points list.

Abdul-Jabbar has held the career points record since April 5, 1984, eight months before James was born, when he broke Wilt Chamberlain’s record. Now, after opening the season with 31 points against the Golden State Warriors, James only needs 1,295 points to break Abdul-career Jabbar’s total of 38,387.

At his career scoring average of 27.1 points per game, James would need 48 games to reach that total, putting him on pace to break the record on Jan. 25 against the San Antonio Spurs if he continues to play.

TNF Bears vs Commanders NFL Free Pick ┊10/13/22

October 13th, 2022

By @OOSSports

Thursday Night Football NFL Free Pick ┊10/13/22

 WASHINGTON @ CHICAGO | 10/13 | 8:15 PM EDT

Although I believed the Bears were the NFL’s weakest team, I’m beginning to change my mind. While they haven’t been overpowered by an opponent more than once this season, they have lack a passing game, an offensive line, and a strong defense. Both of their most recent road opponents are now 4-1, thanks to CLOSE wins vs the the Bears.. That’s a tribute to what appears to be a competent coaching staff on the Bear’s sideline, which is more than I can say about the current regime in Washington. Chicago should be minor favorites at home on a short week, because of the closeness of the margin between them and the visiting club. Therefore, I’ll be betting on them and crossing my fingers that coaching prevails.

THE PICK: CHICAGO PK
