Maybe Dave Dameshek is right, the football gods are mocking domed stadiums.
The high-flying Packers scored three points against the Lions at Ford Field. The Lions. The Packers scored 28 points against the Lions in the great outdoors earlier this season. And to make matters worse, Rodgers ended the fantasy season of a lot of enthusiasts.
The Broncos have scored three points so far against the Cardinals. And the Cardinals defense is more easily duped than the unsuspecting minimum-wage workers on “Undercover Boss.” Hey Kyle Orton, Jay Feely has more touchdowns than you.
But look at the Patriots. That’s 33 points in the first half despite the snowy conditions of Soldier Field. Not that we should be surprised by QB Tom Brady thriving in the snowy conditions. But the Patriots are not having a letdown after a complete beatdown of the Jets on Monday night. Brady is turning in an excellent fantasy performance.
Although, that doesn’t explain why the football gods are angry with the Bears. Maybe they just don’t like Bears QB Jay Cutler.
So let this be a warning to those of you looking to get major points from the Giants or Vikings on Monday night.
