Week 11 Bozo of the week:

The first SECOND-TIME winner of this award goes to Kim (who I now know fo’ sho’ doesn’t read these). Kim put up a SMOOOOOOOTH 26.70 points by having her kicker on a bye, her RB Mark Ingram on a bye, and her only QB Sam Bradford out. She also had the unfortunate circumstance of having her other RB Devonta Freeman suffer a head injury, but she DID leave Demaryius Thomas and Chris Ivory on the bench, so there’s that. Congrats!
Time to take up a collection:
Because they each have such low ‘Q Scores’, two NFL stars teamed up in a commercial that will hopefully make them some cash on the side because between their measly salaries and other commercials, they don’t have quite enough scratch.
Yes, you saw right, that’s Peyton Manning and JJ Watt in a new Papa John’s pizza commercial. I don’t want to cast stones on how much $$ anyone should try to make, but if you’re Peyton Manning, do you REALLY need to make a paid cameo at a Sweet 16 birthday party? And JJ, I know you don’t need THAT much cash because your summer cabin in the woods of Wisconsin is so small and minimalistic, right?
I know this is America and you can make however much money you like, but that doesn’t mean I have to WANT to see you on my TV every 32.64 seconds. Join me, people! Make a stand. Tell your TV providers that we DON’T need to see the same 3 white NFL stars all the time. Where are AJ Green and Julio Jones’ commercials? Why can’t Cam Newton get something more than a Greek yogurt commercial? Where’s the love for Chandler Jones, Ezekiel Ansah, Todd Gurley, Antonio Brown and DeAndre Hopkins? Tell ’em Jean-Luc! http://gph.is/18ChBA1
In the college game:
I know this is an NFL league, but please catch a couple of NCAA games…

Michigan State ended our long national nightmare of Ohioans believing they are superior to anyone else by beating Ohio State AT Ohio State with their THIRD string QB. Game Winning FG by Michael Geiger (native of Toledo, Ohio) who had THE best celebration for a kicker (better than Justin Tucker) and topped it off with profanity on Michigan State radio in the post game. It’s a good thing that Urban Meyer taught his kids how to handle defeat with grace because as soon as it happened, multiple OSU players acted like rats leaving a sinking ship and started blaming everyone and declaring they’re going pro. The other great thing about this game is that beforehand, Akron native LeBron James bet Michigan State alum Draymond Green cases of wine about the outcome. Well, like everything else this year, the Warriors won again (15-0 in the NBA, 1-0 in bets) and LeBron now has to pay up. Michigan tuned up for their big game v Ohio State by winning AT Penn State 28-16. Iowa stayed undefeated by beating Purdue 40-20.
In other games, Florida needed OT AT HOME to beat 2-9 Florida Atlantic 20-14. Yeah, good luck with Florida State 9-2 (W 52-13 v Chattanooga) followed by Alabama 10-1 (W 56-6 v Charleston Southern), boys. LSU is in free fall after being #2 in the country, they’ve now lost 3 straight to Alabama, Arkansas, and now #22 Ole Miss 38-17.
Sneaky North Carolina 10-1 won AT Va Tech in Frank Beamer’s final home game 30-27 in OT. #1 Clemson stayed undefeated by beating Wake Forest 33-13.
The Big 12 is a mess. #7 Oklahoma 10-1 beat #18 TCU 9-2 when the TCU coach decided to go for two and the win instead of the tie and OT . Super Important Note: Oklahoma’s staring QB was knocked out of the game at the time. #10 Baylor 9-1 with their second string QB (because their starter broke his neck 4 weeks ago) won AT #6 Oklahoma State 10-1 (45-35). Oklahoma starting QB Baker Mayfield is questionable with concussion-like symptoms before next week’s big game AT Oklahoma State.
In other news, Notre Dame beat BC in a ‘home game’ for ND IN Fenway Park and no one gave a crap.
Week 12 Thursday Games:
Philadelphia AT Detroit 12:30p

Carolina AT Dallas 4:30p

Chicago AT Green Bay 8:30p

Brett Favre is getting his number retired at halftime.
Whatever the temperature in Green Bay, you know Brett will be in Real. Comfortable. Jeans.
