When the games start moving to Thursday the NFL week really gets on you fast, I cannot believe we already have a game tonight
Texans @ Eagles -8- This is a bad match-up for the Texans. There have been distractions all week in Houston with the Andre Johnson fight, which I applaud Johnson for, Cortland Finnegan is a cockroach who needs to get smacked. The Texans pass defense is horrendous and Andre Reid is addicted to the pass, this will not be pretty.
Heat -5.5 – Cavs- I have hated almost everything Lebron has done sine The Decision. I do not like a lot of the reports that are coming out about him, about his allowing the coach to be the fall guy, none of it. I think a lot of what Lebron is starting to represent is a lot of what is bad about sports. This guy has been crowned the greatest and has won nothing when it mattered. Great talent, but I have not heard great things regarding his work ethic to get better.
I hope the sports gods give Cleveland a moral victory tonight with a win over the Heat. However, if Lebron is able to play great tonight and get the Heat a win this would maybe one of the biggest wins of his career in my mind. The guy is starting to come off as a front-runner, well there will be none of that tonight. This is not an easy game for the Heat to win, even if they are favored.
