Podcast: Football Picks 2020 Week 15 / Christmastime in the City (12-16-2020)

2020-12-16-xmas-football-picks-wk15.jpg

It's our DITCOW Season Finale and our Football Picks Finale for 2020.  John in Orlando joins us as our Week 15 guest picker as we recap arguably the best NFL game of the year so far between the Ravens and Browns.  Lamar Jackson comes out of the tunnel after an apparent injury and leads the Ravens to a comeback win in an otherwise back-and-forth meeting with Cleveland.  More ridiculous bad beats blow covers for teams in the NFL schedule, the Eagles shock the Saints with Jalen Hurts' first start, and more action from both NFL and the College Slate.  LSU upsets Florida out of nowhere to blow up their playoff chances, games are cancelled in various conferences in part to aid the path for the top teams in the sport, and USC outlasts UCLA in a great game featuring a bad beat of their own.  We look ahead to the Week 15 football action which includes a fantastic Saturday chock full of Conference Championships and an NFL Doubleheader.  Later we look at who to watch for in the NFL playoff chases, make our picks, and reflect on a very different holiday season within a pandemic.

Chris in Syracuse is our guest picker as Ron, John, and Dave break down the miracle comeback loss for the Jets as they keep their #1 draft pic hopes alive in a dubious finish against the Raiders.  Carr throws a touchdown pass to Henry Ruggs to also keep the Raiders playoff hopes alive.  We cover that and many other wacky endings in a wild, wild NFL Witching Hour last weekend.  Later we dig into the absurdity of the playoff rankings, the dearth of juice in College Football, a roundup of our panel's bad beats of the week, and the picks.   Ron, Dave, and John are separated by only 5 points in the season standings, and we see what each of them offer to close the gap or extend the lead.   Plus, we get Andy and Chris' picks as we head to the home stretch of the season.

Robert in VA is our guest picker this week as Ron, John, Andy, and Dave dig into all the chaos in pro and college football.     We recap Tyreek Hill's huge day for the Chiefs against the Bucs, 49ers/Rams, the COVID outbreak that pushed Ravens/Steelers back six days, and more from NFL Week 12.  From College, we break down the ridiculous pampering the CFP committee gave a mediocre Ohio State on Tuesday, more cancellations and postponements all over the NCAA.   The crew then make their picks with Ron, Dave, and John within five points of each other in the season standings.
