Season 9 is complete! Season 8 saw Emmitt going to North Korea to stop Kim Jong-un from destroying the world. It featured a mind-blowing twist at the very end that you absolutely need to check out if you haven't already. Season 9 dealt with the election, as well as the League of Failed General Managers, led by Matt Millen and Hillary Clinton.
A reminder that Jerks of the Week
for this week is up, so just click the link. This week's jerks entry is Walter Goes to Harrisburg, Part 1.
The Steelers destroyed the Chiefs on a Sunday night back in Week 4, as Ben Roethlisberger torched a secondary that was just realizing that it missed Sean Smith, who defected for Oakland. Kansas City didn't have a strong No. 2 corner at the time, but that has changed recently. Terrance Mitchell has come out of nowhere to perform on a high level for them.
That said, it's still going to be difficult to contain Antonio Brown, as well as Ben Roethlisberger's other weapons. This includes Le'Veon Bell. The Chiefs have struggled to stop the run this year, and not having Derrick Johnson on the field will hurt tremendously. Bell just ripped through the Dolphins, and I imagine him doing the same to Kansas City.
The one caveat is Roethlisberger's health. For some reason, Todd Haley called a pass play with 4:30 remaining in regulation despite his team being up 30-12. Roethlisberger took a big hit and was wincing in pain as he grabbed his shoulder. Roethlisberger then showed up to the post-game press conference in a walking boot. I'm not sure why he needed a walking boot after grabbing his shoulder in pain, but perhaps his body is just weird. Nevertheless, Roethlisberger potentially not being 100 percent would obviously have an enormous impact on this game.
KANSAS CITY OFFENSE:
While Roethlisberger torched the Chiefs' secondary in the Week 4 blowout, Alex Smith didn't fare nearly as well. Smith was just 13-of-21 for 131 yards and an interception in the opening half, but he was able to throw his two scores in garbage time when the Steelers stopped trying. Smith is a quality game-manager, but he's usually not equipped to thrive in shootouts. If he'll be asked to do so again, things probably won't end well for him.
One area of concern is the pass protection. Left tackle Eric Fisher is not very good, and he'll be going up against James Harrison, who is somehow still playing on a Pro Bowl level. I also don't trust the interior to block Stephon Tuitt. Thus, Smith will have to release quick passes, and I imagine he'll be able to engineer some successful offensive drives doing so. He'll obviously target Travis Kelce heavily, and given that the Steelers aren't very good at defending tight ends, Kelce should have a great afternoon. However, the dink-and-dunk approach isn't very consistent, which is why the Chiefs often get to 17 or 20 points and just sit on that sum without being able to do anything.
I don't expect Kansas City to run effectively versus a defense that just put the clamps on Jay Ajayi, so the Chiefs will need Tyreek Hill to hit a big play. Hill is usually good for one of those per game, so whether that happens or not could decide if the Chiefs move on to the AFC Championship or not.
I made this spread -1.5, and after this line bounced around a bit, that's exactly what it is right now.
I'm taking the Steelers. I think they're slightly better overall, and Kansas City has no home-field advantage, owning just a 13-18 spread record as hosts under Andy Reid. Roethlisberger is the superior quarterback, and Pittsburgh has the better offensive line.
However, the reason I'm not betting this game, aside from the lack of value - I was hoping for +3 - is a potential Roethlisberger injury. If he's completely healthy, I'm confident the Steelers will win. But what if he's not? He took a pretty crushing blow on his final pass attempt, so it's possible that he could be at 80-percent capacity or worse.
I may put a unit on the Steelers. I'm thinking about it. Ben Roethlisberger is out of his walking boot even though he hurt his shoulder. I don't know. I don't get it. But the Steelers are the better team, and they figure to have a huge advantage if the field is very wet from the potential snow and rain.
I was hoping to see one of two things: One, for this line would be +3, which would make me confident enough to wager a couple of units on the Steelers. And two, horrible weather, which would give Pittsburgh a big advantage because of its superior ground attack. Neither has happened. This line stopped moving at +2.5, and while there might be some light rain, the wind isn't expected to be heavy. I think this line is set about right where it should be. I'm taking the Steelers, but at +2.5, I don't like them enough to bet them.

The Game. Edge: Packers.
This week on FOX , we're going to have Joe Buck and Troy Aikman calling the shots instead the great preseason homers like Kevin Reilly, Ron Wolfley and Don Tollefson, inept ESPN guys Emmitt, Herman Edwards and Matt Millen, and aloof people like Dan Fouts. Here's what it would sound like if these seven dudes (and some special guests) were calling this game:
Reilly: Welcome to the city of Hell, known as Dallas, Texas. Tonight, we have the Dallas Cowgirls taking on the Green Bay Packers. Guys, mother let me watch the college football national championship last night between the Alabama Elephants and the Clemson Lions. I was looking for players for my Eagles to pick in the draft this June, and then after the game, the Clemson players kept talking about God. And that got me thinking - why don't I invoke the power of God to smite the Cowboys? I've tried to kill NFC East quarterbacks who beat my Eagles this year, and I've failed, so why not let God do it?
Emmitt: Abraham, from what I understand from reading the Bible novel, God is the guy in the heaven who make thing happen. He real powerful and strongful, so why would he listen to a regular ol' guy like yourselfs?
Reilly: Because I want the Cowboys to die, and God is great enough to make that happen! Plus, mother says I'm special, so God has to listen to a special person right?
Herm: NOT SPECIAL! DEFINITELY NOT SPECIAL! ABSOLUTELY NOT SPECIAL! FAR FROM SPECIAL! NOT SPECIAL SAUCE! NO SPECIAL SAUCE HERE! NO SPECIAL SAUCE AVAILABLE! HERM HATES SPECIAL SAUCE! IT COMES ON SANDWICHES SOMETIMES AND RUINS THEM! WHY CAN'T PEOPLE JUST EAT PLAIN!? WHAT'S WRONG WITH PLAIN!? HERM LIKES TO RIDE THE PLANE! PLANES ARE FUN! UNLESS YOU GET FRISKED BY SECURITY! THEN PLANES ARE NO GOOD! NOT GOOD AT ALL! BUT HOW DID HERM START TALKING ABOUT PLANES!? NEXT HERM'S GONNA START TALKING ABOUT TRAINS! THEN HE'S GONNA START TALKING ABOUT AUTOMOBILES! PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES! SOUNDS LIKE A CLEVER FILM TITLE HERM JUST MADE UP! HERM'S COINING THE PHRASE! HERM'S GOING TO THE COPYRIGHT OFFICE RIGHT NOW TO MAKE IT LEGAL! SEE YA! PEACE OUT!
Millen: Herm, even though you're not here anymore, I'm going to address you. Getting frisked at the airport is one of the best reasons to ride a plane. When I go to the airport, I typically stuff numerous kielbasas into my backside so that when the 100-percent USDA TSA Guard searches it, he'll find them and have to pull them out of my backside! Then, I give him some of that special sauce you're talking about, and I smear it on the kielbasas and ask him to re-insert them into my backside.
Tollefson: Millen, it's funny you should bring up frisking. One time, a female TSA agent had the audacity to frisk me. As if she should've been working instead of slaving away in the kitchen. She started searching for me, and that's when I seized the opportunity and grabbed a baseball bat and clubbed her over the head. When she came to, she was in a sexy maid's outfit and had a broom in her hand. She cleaned my apartment until she passed out, and then I threw her in the dumpster.
Reilly: Tolly, it's so cool that you can talk to women like that. I'm too scared, and mother says I'm not ready. But I will talk to God. Zeus, if you can hear me, please throw some lightning bolts and deal three damage to Dak Prescott so that he dies and then my Eagles will always beat the Cowboys.
Wolfley: I ONCE SPOKE TO GOD. HE DISGUISED HIMSELF AS A DOG WEARING A BANDANA. HE TOLD ME TO GIVE HIM A MEATLOAF SO I GAVE IT TO HIM. COME TO THINK OF IT, THAT MIGHT HAVE JUST BEEN A DOG WEARING A BANDANA AND NOT GOD.
Reilly: Zeus, please, listen to me. Destroy Dak Prescott!
Fouts: And here's what he means by destroy Dak Prescott. Destroy is a complicated word, and if you break it apart, you see that it's really two words: Des and troy. Des is the first three letters of desk, destination and Desmond. That means you write on it while spending time on vacation and pushing a button every 108 minutes, which is one more than 107 minutes, but two fewer than 110 minutes. Then, there's Troy. That was a city where people snuck in by giving people Trojan condoms, and then they had sex with everyone and no one got pregnant, and they didn't understand why. That's why they called it the Trojan condom horse.
Reilly: That's not how that happened at all, idiot. Mother told me what happened. God, Zeus, why are you not listening to me!? All I want you to do is kill someone, and you're not doing it. Life sucks!
God's Voice: Kevin Reilly, my son, I will do what you ask, my son.
Reilly: What!? Really!? YES, FINALLY!
God's Voice: Kevin, I'm going to kill your enemies, my son. The Cowboys are your enemies, my son. The Giants are foes for your Eagles, my son. The Redskins are threats to your Eagles, my son. The Buccaneers beat your team in the playoffs once, so they need to go too, my son. How about the Panthers, who knocked you out once, my son? Let's discuss the Rams, who beat you once, my son. What about the Saints, who ruined your playoff chances once, my son? Let's guess one more, my son. Can you guess another team that knocked your Eagles out of the playoffs, my son?
Reilly: Uhh... the umm... wait a second, why does God sound vaguely familiar? If I didn't know better, I'd...
God's Voice: Sorry, my son, the answer is not pepperoni pizza, my son. The answer is the Packers, my son. I also would've accepted the Saints, my son.
Reilly: F*** YOU CHARLES D- I mean, uhh, God, why are you talking like Charles Davis? If you talk like Charles Davis, I'd rather go to Hell! Satan? Satan, can you hear-
God's Voice: My son, I can't grant your wishes, my son. Not because I hate you, my son, but because I am Charles Davis, my son. I am pretending to be God because I'm just guessing you asked God to do something you wanted to do, but couldn't, Kevin. Sorry to trick you, Kevin. Just having some fun, Kevin. Need to have fun, Kevin, because I'm kidnapped and only you can save me, Kevin. Please, Kevin, they are torturing me, Kevin. You're my only hope, Kevin.
Reilly: GOD F***ING DAMN IT, I HATE YOU CHARLES DAVIS AND I HATE YOU GOD, AND I AM GOING TO KILL ALL OF YOU, YES I'M GOING TO GO TO HEAVEN AND DESTROY YOU, GOD, AND THEN I'LL THROW LIGHTNING BOLTS AT THE COWBOYS AND CHARLES DAVIS AND THEN I'LL F***ING STUFF PEPPERONI PIZZAS IN HIS F***ING FACE! We'll be back after this...
GREEN BAY OFFENSE: Aaron Rodgers has been running the table thus far, but now it seems as though he'll have to do so without Jordy Nelson, who suffered a rib injury in the early stages of the victory over the Giants. Though Rodgers struggled for one-and-a-half quarters, he got into a groove and ultimately torched New York without Nelson's services, so he won't need his No. 1 receiver, right?
Probably not. Rodgers is the hottest quarterback in the NFL and is fully deserving the MVP award because the Packers would be completely lost without him. Rodgers now has a healthy Randall Cobb to throw to, which hasn't been the case this year. Rodgers also has an easier matchup this week, as Dallas' secondary isn't nearly as potent as New York's, especially without Morris Claiborne being at full strength. The Cowboys don't have the personnel to rattle Rodgers at all either. Rodgers had an eternity to throw against the Giants at times, despite battling a pass rush that is certainly better than Dallas'. The Cowboys have David Irving, and, well, that's about it. Green Bay possesses an elite offensive line and will be able to keep Rodgers clean.
The Packers just seem to match up extremely well against the Cowboys on this side of the ball. Dallas' one defensive strength is being able to stop the run, but the Packers have shown that they don't need a consistent ground attack to be successful. Christine Michael will pick up a decent gain here or there, but Green Bay will primarily move the ball via Rodgers' excellent passing, which the Cowboys aren't equipped to stop.
DALLAS OFFENSE: Everyone talks about Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott, and rightfully so. They've been amazing despite being rookies. However, the engine behind the Cowboys' scoring attack is the offensive line, which is one of the league's best. Aside from Doug Free, there aren't any liabilities for the Cowboys up front.
That may not be the case in this contest, however. Left tackle Tyron Smith suffered a knee injury when the Cowboys were inexplicably trying to run up the score in a meaningless Week 16 game against the Lions. Smith is likely to play, but what if he's not 100 percent? The Cowboys already had a weakness in Free trying to block Nick Perry, and if Smith isn't fully healthy, he may have some issues versus Julius Peppers, who had a terrific performance last week.
If Smith is healthy, there's no doubt the Cowboys will put up some points, as the Packers have obvious weaknesses in their secondary. Green Bay isn't bad against the run, but containing Ezekiel Elliott is not like putting the clamps on Paul Perkins and Rashad Jennings.
RECAP: I don't understand this spread. Let me get this straight... a rookie quarterback making his first playoff start is favored by 4.5 points over the best quarterback in the NFL, who happens to be absolutely on fire right now? Uhh... what?
I made this line Cowboys -3, and I thought that might be kind of high. Dallas has a horrible home-field advantage; the team was 5-3 against the spread as hosts this year, but was lucky to cover versus Philadelphia and Baltimore. Meanwhile, the Packers, under Rodgers, have been terrific in dome environments for the most part, covering five of their previous seven indoor games. Given that this contest will be played in perfect conditions, Rodgers will be able to torch the Cowboys without having to worry about the wind or rain.
The Cowboys also aren't as good as their record indicates. They really had just one convincing victory over a true playoff team all year, beating the Steelers in the final seconds. They defeated the Packers in Week 6, but Green Bay had a Thursday night game coming up, so it wasn't completely focused. Since Thanksgiving, the Cowboys nearly lost to the Vikings (and would have if Adam Thielen didn't muff a punt), dropped a game to the overrated Giants, barely snuck by the Buccaneers, and then thrashed the Lions, a team that ended its season on a four-game losing streak because of countless injuries. I'm not saying the Cowboys aren't a good team, or anything, because they are. However, their record is inflated, and this spread happens to be as well.
Besides, we're getting 4.5 points with Rodgers, for crying out loud. How often does that happen? It hasn't occurred yet this year, though it's happened twice in the playoffs the past couple of years. Rodgers, despite being banged up in battles against the Seahawks and Cardinals, was able to cover large spreads in those contests. Rodgers is completely healthy now, and his offensive line is as well. I don't see why he couldn't win this game, or at least keep it close. Even if the Packers are down, Rodgers can certainly engineer a back-door scoring drive.
This is my top pick of the week, as I'm taking the Packers for five units. I already made my January NFL Pick of the Month, but if this line were +6 or more, I'd actually consider a second pick of the month.
THURSDAY THOUGHTS: I still love the Packers. I'm hoping this line moves up, but I also fear it dropping beneath +4. If this drops to +4, I'll definitely think about locking it in.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Argh. This spread rose to +6 last night. I didn't lock it in because I thought there might be a chance that the line could move up to +6.5 like it did in the Seattle-Atlanta game. Alas, it did not, as there was some sharp action at +6. Before you get too excited, professional money moved this line to -6 in the first place, but that could've been phantom movement in an attempt to get a great number. At any rate, I'm holding out for +6, so I'll be closely monitoring this spread. Either way, I love the Packers, as getting more than a field goal with the best quarterback in the NFL seems like a gift. I think the Packers cover this spread more often than not, especially with the Cowboys being a bit overrated as a result of their easy schedule and poor home-field advantage.
