The ’72 Dolphins. The ’07 New England Patriots (save for an unfortunate Super Bowl loss). The Westfield High School gymnastics team (just about any season prior to 2017). The 2017 Southwick Rams golf team.
Larry S. White went undefeated in Week 7 of our “Beat ‘The Putz’” pro football contest. And the list of unbeatens continues to grow.
In Week 8, six contestants posted a record of 11-0, but so did yours truly. Better luck next time … or rather (from your perspective) jinx to me.
The best teams in the National Football League this year include the 7-1 Philadelphia Eagles, the Kansas City Chiefs (6-2), New England Patriots (6-2), Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2), Minnesota Vikings (6-2), Buffalo Bills (5-2), New Orleans Saints (5-2), Seattle Seahawks (5-2), and Los Angeles Rams (5-2).
Here’s hoping it’s another charmed year for the Brady, Belichick, and the red, white, and blue.
On the flip side, the slate of Week 9 games is far from perfect as there is only one matchup of winning teams with the Chiefs visiting the Dallas Cowboys (4-3).
In our Sunday night tiebreaker, the Oakland Raiders visit the Miami Dolphins.
