Scott Shapiro’s NFC Championship Game Analysis- Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints

The first of two rematches on Championship Sunday in the National Football League pits the two-seeded Los Angeles Rams against the top-seeded New Orleans Saints, and like their first encounter, this contest is in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but unlike that first game, I do not anticipate this being as high-scoring as it was in Week 9 when both teams peaked on the offensive side of the ball. The Rams were the early favorites to win the Super [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 13 Thursday Night Analysis- Saints at Cowboys

The bye weeks are behind us meaning each squad in the National Football League has just five games left on their 2018 schedules. Some teams have little left to play for given poor performances more times than not through the first 11 games, but two of them with plenty still on the line meet on Thursday in Dallas to kick off Week 13. The New Orleans Saints are the hottest team in the league. Not only have they rattled off [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Thanksgiving Day NFL Thoughts and Selections

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am still catching my breath from the shootout in the Coliseum where the Los Angeles Rams outdueled Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the highest scoring contest in Monday Night Football history 54-51. This year I am thankful for a lot of things, but the Eagles offense is not one of them. Philadelphia let me down big time when scoring just 7 points last week to keep my Week 11 “Top Play” UNDER the [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 11 NFL 4-Pack

Week 11 got off to a strong start in Seattle on Thursday night as the home team came out on top in a tight one 27-24. I am really looking forward to a strong slate of games this weekend. Here is my Sunday 4-Pack: Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints (O/U 56) The red-hot Saints, fresh off a 51-14 romp of the Bengals, return to Louisiana to take on an Eagles team that has failed to resemble their championship squad [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 7 NFL 4-Pack

A solid slate of games is on tap this Sunday in the NFL after a terrible performance from the Arizona Cardinals to start Week 7 NFL on Thursday Night. Here is my Week 7 NFL 4-Pack: Jacksonville Jaguars (-5.5) vs Houston Texans The AFC South does not look like one of the stronger divisions in football in 2018, but first place is on the line in this matchup in North Florida on Sunday afternoon. Jacksonville almost made the Super Bowl [...]
