The Stack joins you this Monday after a Sunday filled with plenty of twists from the NFL. It was a wild Sunday. Picks were a little shaky this week, 7-6 so far. We’re down to one undefeated team remaining in the NFL and no winless teams. We’ll get to all that and more including a preview and prediction for Monday night’s big AFC West showdown between the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers. Now let’s get to everything in “the stack” for today, Monday, October 15:
Atlanta 23 Oakland 20
It was far from pretty, especially for Matt Ryan (three interceptions), but thanks to the defense who had a pick six and kicker Matt Bryant, the Falcons are 6-0 and the lone undefeated team in the NFL. They can only get better too and that will keep them hungry.
Baltimore 31 Dallas 29
The Cowboys had plenty of miscues in this game that cost them a victory. Whether it be the failed two point conversion, the missed field goal, the Cowboys didn’t execute to perfection. It’s not all smooth sailing for the Ravens though. They cannot stop the run and it may be even easier for opposing teams to run against them with the injuries they suffered Sunday. Ray Lewis (triceps) and Lardarius Webb (possible torn ACL) most likely are done for the year. Haloti Ngata was also injured. All is not well in Baltimore despite being 5-1.
