Today's Preview
All thirteen NFL games. That's right - the Streak has put all thirteen NFL games up on our board as straight-up matchups. You pick the winner, and you're a winner. Plus, we've thrown in a few NFL props, and of course the obligatory morning soccer.

The Premier League opens the day, though at the more sedate hour of 10 AM. Newcastle hosts Tottenham, and we're giving the Spurs the draw as they are a considerable underdog. The two teams are currently tied in the EPL standings.

At 1 PM there are seven NFL games to choose from - or you can pick a side in our player prop between Marques Colston and Calvin Johnson. It's a "more receiving yards" matchup - Colston has the better thrower, but last week Streakers found out to their chagrin that the Saints' passing game works better at home than it does on the road.

Later in the afternoon we've got five more NFL games, a player prop, and a "who will win by more" proposition. Fans on both sides of the country will be watching the Jets take on the Seahawks in Mike Holmgren's final home game as the Seattle coach. Will Favre beat his former mentor, or will the disappointing 'Hawks dig deep and pull out a win? With snow currently on the ground in Seattle, it might be the Jets that are more used to the weather conditions.


NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins
The surging Eagles try to win their fourth in a row as they make a late playoff push. The Redskins have lost their last three, and are only playing for pride. Nevertheless, there are no gimmes when these division rivals meet, and the Redskins will have the home crowd behind them as they try to regain their early-season form. Jim Zorn and Clinton Portis both have something to prove in this one.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers climbed back above 50% for the first time since Monday by backing the ACC - the two biggest streak extenders were the Blue Devils in hoops and the Deacon Demons on the gridiron. Countering those successes were unexpected losses by the Memphis Tigers on the hardwood, and the BYU Cougars on the football field.
