Scott Pianowski and Frank Schwab give you their picks against the spread for each NFL game this week in an attempt to hopefully help win you some money. They also occasionally get side-tracked with conversations about who should be the Seahawks starting QB, how a 2021 redraft would go, if Troy Aikman had the best setup of any QB, and an appreciation of the 1999 Carolina Panthers. Yup, it’s going to be fun.
The Carolina Panthers have lost starting cornerback Donte Jackson for the remainder of the season to a groin injury. Jackson was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. It has yet to be determined if Jackson, who is due to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason, will need surgery.
After four consecutive losses going into the bye week, Ron Rivera recalculated how Washington could win games. The result has been a three-game winning streak to move into the final playoff position in the NFC at 5-6. A strong running game led by second-year back Antonio Gibson has been at the heart of it.
