Lions @ Giants 1:00 FOX

One of the better games this weekend takes place in New Jersey.  Both teams battling for playoff position and battling some injuries.  MVP candidate Matt Stafford has torn ligaments in his finger while the Giants will again be with out JPP.  Based on remaining schedules the Lions need this more.  Based on how the Giants are playing I’m not so sure the Lions have a great chance of pulling off the W.  The Lions like to throw and the one thing the Giants do well is defend the pass.

Giants Transactions:

12/10/2016 OL Adam Gettis – Waived
12/10/2016 RB Shane Vereen activated from Reserve/Injured; Designated for Return

Bucs @ Cowboys 8:30 NBC SNF

We are the point in the season where we get the Cowboys rammed down are freaking throats until after the Super Bowl (if they make it).  They have another primetime game and face a solid Bucs team dominating the defensive side of the ball.  No idea why a team currently 11-2 would even talk about benching it’s starting QB but that’s all the talk surrounding Dallas.  Dak Prescott had one bad game and now it might be Romo time?  I’m not so sure the Cowboys are as confident as they have been in the past.  This will be a great game.  Dallas cannot and will not be able to cover Mike Evans.  TB has the defensive horses to limit Elliot and Bryant.

Cowboys Transactions:

McFadden, Darren RB Reinstated 12/13
Smith, Jaylon LB Placed on IR – knee 12/13
Jackson, Darius RB Cut 12/13

Panthers @ Redskins 8:30 MNF

Another NFC East team takes the primetime stage in the second game.  This game is all about the Panthers facing their former teammate Josh Norman.  I’ll will all but guarantee Norman gets a 15 yard penalty at some point during this game.  The Redskins desperately need this game for their playoff hopes.  As of now they are on the outside looking in.  They need to win and get some help which could easily happen.

Redskins Transactions:

12/13/2016 Signed LB Nick Moody, placed Anthony Lanier on Injured Reserve, signed A.J. Francisand DB Shak Randolph and released DL Trevon Coley and DB Lee Hightower from the practice squad.
12/10/2016 Activated C Kory Lichtensteiger from the Reserve/Injured list and waived DL A.J. Francis.
12/07/2016 Signed CB Dashaun Phillips to the practice squad.
