Welcome to the Tuesday edition of the Pick Six Newsletter!
First, let me start off here by saying that you guys should be happy that I’m not a Bears fan, because if I were, I would the spend THE ENTIRE newsletter today complaining about the horrible calls that went against the Bears in their 29-27 loss to the Steelers last night. I personally haven’t seen officiating that bad since Wrestlemania XII.
The officiating was so bad that we actually will spend some time talking about it in today’s newsletter. We’ll also be offering some Week 9 picks, plus Prisco’s Power Rankings. Also, don’t forget that today is “National Odell Beckham might find a new team to play for” day. NFL teams have until 4 p.m. ET to make a claim for him on waivers, which means Odell MIGHT have a new team by 4:01 p.m., so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that. Alright, let’s get to the rundown.
As always, here’s your weekly reminder to tell all your friends to sign up for the Pick Six newsletter. To get your friends to sign up, all you have to do is click here and then share this link with them. If your friends don’t want to sign up, you should trade them for new friends or claim a new friend off waivers. If you do that, I believe you have until 4 p.m. today.
1. Today’s show: Recapping the Steelers’ controversial win over the Bears
For the first two quarters of Monday’s game, it looked like it was going to turn into a blowout and that’s mostly because the Steelers quickly jumped out to a 14-0 lead. Hopefully you didn’t go to bed at halftime though, because things got wild in the second half. The Steelers had to hold on for dear life as the Bears clawed their way back into the game. In the end, the Steelers and the refs were able to take down the Bears 29-27 in a game that wasn’t officially decided until Cairo Santos missed a 65-yard field goal on the final play (You can see the kick by clicking here).
