Patriots Look to Rebound against Chiefs in Week 14 BIZLAX GOTW

Thanksgiving Day Results - Big D For Depressing In Dallas, Falcons Flop In Nightcap

Dallas Dips, Saints Roll On

Bills Uncork On Cowboys, Falcons Freefall Continues

Let’s face it; the Cowboys just ain’t that good. In front of a home crowd, on national TV, with a head coach whose head is on the chopping block, Dallas turned in an uninspiring performance vs. the 9-3 Buffalo Bills at AT & T Stadium and lost 26-15 to drop to 6-6. Thankfully for Jerry Jones’ troops, they still possess first place in the woeful NFC East. In the nightcap, New Orleans bounced back from a Week 10 loss to Falcons by fending off Matt Ryan and a flurry of successful onside kicks to exit Atlanta with a 26-18 victory.

It was Thanksgiving Thursday and in NFL/Bizlax parlance that means big bucks on the board. Two hundred bucks a quarter and there were some tightrope moments for the Pool’s participants. Your trusty commissioner looked as if he had the halftime time hit locked up on the 7-7 score between Buffalo and Dallas with the Bills facing a fourth down deep in Dallas territory with 2 minutes to play. Buffalo QB Josh Allen fumbled the snap (HOORAY!) only to pluck the ball out of the scrum like grandma digging into a turkey’s ass to clean out it gizzards. Allen then dove over the top to pass the line to gain for a new set of downs. That’s when the Bills pulled out the old razzle dazzle and perfectly executed a double reverse option pass (John Brown to Devin Singletary) for the go ahead touchdown leaving “Big Electric” high & dry on the hit possibility. If that wasn’t enough torture, “Blind Clones” looked like a lock for the second quarter hit with a 4 & 7 in hand, but a missed PAT delivered “@Donthasselhoff” the halftime hit on the 13-7 score. The ‘Hoff” would connect in the third quarter as well (23-7, BUF) for a sweet $400 pay day.

As frustrating as it were for the Bixlaxians, the looks on the Cowboys fans as the game wore on told a similar story. Dak Prescott just could not rally his offense to do any meaningful harm to the Buffalo defense, which left Jerry Jones reeling and finding a way to justify the existence of Jason Garrett as his head coach. The Cowboys are far too talented to be a mediocre team.

In the evening match, we had multiple missed kicks (as in the afternoon game) that affected the outcomes on the scoreboard and the squares sheet. Tension in pool play was evident right from the get go as Atlanta (3-9), trailing 7-0, had the ball on the Saints 2-yard line, 4th and 1 and the clock winding down towards zero. I could hear “Benny” from 3,000 miles away screaming “Let it run down! Kill the clock!” even as “Gauc-A-F**ing-Mole” was shouting “GO! GO!” at his TV in Idaho. It was a no-go zone, as Falcons coach Dan Quinn chose to roll the 4th down play over into the second quarter. Bingo for “Benny”.

The conversion attempt failed anyway and it was just that kind of night for the Falcons. New Orleans (10-2) built a 23-9 lead and then fended off a flurry of onside kick recoveries that led to little more than field goal attempts to finalize the score at 26-18.

A lot of crooked numbers on the pool hits for T-Day 2019. No OT, so we jump up to $250 when we get back in action 10 days from now.
