Scott co-hosts The Scott Garceau Show, an afternoon drive-time Sports Talk Show on Baltimore’s 105.7 The Fan that is also telecast on MASN. A member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Selectors, he is one of 44 members that meet each year at the Super Bowl to select the Hall of Fame inductees.
Last week, Scott Garceau went 4-for-4 on his picks with all four home teams winning in the wildcard round (the year before all four home teams lost). Here’s his best guess at this weekend’s games.
The four franchises with the most postseason berths in NFL history – the Dallas Cowboys (32), Green Bay Packers (32), New York Giants (32) and Pittsburgh Steelers (30) – are all in the 2016 NFL playoffs.
There isn’t much history between these I-95 neighbors; in the Ravens 21-year history they’ve only met the Eagles four times in the regular season.
I think the Patriots (10-2) are a very good football team and I think the Ravens (7-5) might be a very good football team.
December means NFL teams are in the stretch run eyeing division titles or wild-card sports that will earn them a spot in the playoffs. Here’s a look at teams that right now qualify for the 5 in and 5 out spots.
The Ravens at Dallas are among the top three games on the schedule this weekend.
The Ravens have turned a 4-game losing streak into a 2-game win streak with a Thursday night win over the Cleveland Browns.
The Ravens have an 11-9 lead in games played in Baltimore and Pittsburgh is 3-1 in postseason games between the two.
You can start at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday morning with the Redskins and Bengals from Wembley Stadium in London. The Bengals at 3-4 are tied with the Ravens for second place in the AFC North the Redskins (4-3) 4 game win streak ended last Sunday with a 20-17 loss in Detroit.
The only time the Ravens lost to the Jets was 1997, the first time they played. If the Ravens’ 2016 season is going anywhere (like the playoffs) you can put this game in the must-win column.
So what can we expect “Marty Ball” to look like Sunday against the Giants? I didn’t get the memo but I expect a couple of things to look different.
When it comes to rivalries The Ravens have the Steelers and the Redskins have the Cowboys, so let’s not get confused and call Sundays game a rivalry.
