IT'S back down to business on Boxing Day with plenty of sport to feast on while scoffing the leftover turkey.
The penultimate week of the NFL regular season is almost over and Jordan has a couple of fancies, with one kicking off in the early hours of Boxing Day and the next 24 hours later.
Jordan's NFL Tips
Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs
Weather could play a big factor here with high winds and rain predicted. The Chiefs haven’t held running backs down too well and the Chiefs pass rush should see a big run attack from the Broncos. Justin Forsett has taken over the lead role over rookie Booker, and should get more touches. His yardage seems low for rush and receiving considering the Chiefs rushing defense, now without Derrick Johnson at MLB, and Justin Houston expected to miss time. Two key defensive players.
Justin Forsett (Denver Broncos) Over 55.5 Rush & Receiving Yards @ 17-20 @– 4 points
Detroit Lions @ Dallas Cowboys
Matthew Stafford (Detroit Lions) Over 260.5 Passing Yards @ 10-11 @– 5.5 points
Was in two minds here with Golden Tate seeing so many targets over the past few weeks, but Stafford
is carrying the Lions and needs a win here in Big D that would seal the NFC North. The Cowboys are through and have their first round bye in place, so starters may not see as much time, but they won’t take a loss at home to a conference rival that they could possibly play again in the post season. Expect Zeke to be ‘fed’ and Dallas to come out on top, but Stafford will need to air it out but with his ligament damage and special glove, he is limited. Still threw for 272 yards against the Jets. Golden Tate has seen double digit targets in his last three and his line of 66.5 is reasonable against a suspect secondary.
