In a season where we have been inundated by Taylor Swift’s ludicrous take over of live NFL coverage whenever the Kansas City Chiefs are playing. And, where we have seen injured Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers now challenge Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce to a COVID-vaccine debate, this season has been nothing short of bizarre storylines.

The “Tush Push” is the latest. This one involving the other Kelce, Jason Kelce, who plays center for the Eagles. On this play, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts gets pushed from behind by two running backs into Kelce in short yardage situations. So far it’s worked for them. Like 81-percent of the time.

Like numbers? How’s this one for you. The Eagles are 12-0 all time against the Jets. Will it continue? Look below.

  • Philadelphia (5-0) (-7.0) @ NY Jets (2-3)

    Tush push this! Tush push that! All the talk from the Jets this week as the prepare for the unbeaten Eagles is how they plan to stop Philly’s “Tush Push” in goalline situations. Easier said than done; the Eagles have been very successful at it, converting 13-of-16 attempts so far this season. But the facts are the Jets must find a way to stop the Eagles speed. The Jets have had issues handling teams that get in open space, i.e. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs a couple weeks ago. This will be a stiff test for Gang Green to go up against Jalen Hurts and crew. On the flip side, the Jets have to establish the run with Breece Hall in order to make life easier for Zach Wilson or else.

    PICK: EAGLES 24 – JETS 20

  • NY Giants (1-4) @ Buffalo (3-2) (-14.5)

    If things couldn’t get any uglier for the New York Giants, they head up to Buffalo to face the Bills who have put up 86 points in two home games this year at Orchard Park. While this is a homecoming of sorts for Giants head coach Brian Daboll, who was the Bills offensive coordinator a couple years ago, he comes in with a banged up offensive line, and questions at quarterback. Daniel Jones has not practiced much at all as he deals with a neck injury, which means the G-Men could end up rolling with Tyrod Taylor under center. Either way, it won’t be pretty again for the Giants.

    PICK: BILLS 34 – GIANTS 14. 

  • New England (1-4) @ Las Vegas (3-2) (-3.0)

    Why recommend this game? Well, simply because it’s the Pats against the ex-Pats.  Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is reportedly coming under fire from an angered Robert Kraft as New England has looked listless this season. The Pats are 1-4, and they can’t score points. Plus the defense is getting chewed up every week. The Patriots have dropped the last two games by a combined score of 72-3.

    On the flip side, ex-Patriots like Jimmy Garrappolo, head coach Josh McDaniels (former Patriots O.C.) and, of course, the Raiders new minority owner, some guy named Tom Brady (you may have heard of him) are coming off a 17-13 win over the Packers. At 2-3 the Raiders aren’t great, but they compete. As long as defensive end Maxx Crosby is heathy and chasing down Mac Jones, this will be another long day for the current Patriots.


  • Detroit (4-1) (-3.0) @ Tampa Bay (3-1)

    Who knew this would be a huge battle in the NFC when the season started six weeks ago? But, here we are. The Lions have been solid all year. Jared Goff has looked great under center, and the Lions defense can get after it; they have 14.5 sacks as a unit. That said, this is a tricky spot to go into Tampa against a prickly Bucs team coming off a bye. The Bucs stunned many with their win over the Saints a couple weeks ago, and Baker Mayfield hasn’t hurt this team yet with mistakes. Todd Bowles gets his guys ready to play too.


  • Dallas (3-2) (-2.5) @ LA Chargers (2-2)

    Will the real Dallas Cowboys please stand up? The Boys got a taste of their own medicine last week in Santa Clara when the 49ers blew them away 42-10. Prior to that game, the Cowboys three wins were all blow outs. This figures to be a closer game against the Bolts, who have won two in a row. Justin Herbert has played well, but the Chargers are just one of those teams –like the Cowboys — you just can’t trust all the time. Dallas figures it out this week.
