The Woot and Wye Show Episode 160: Cousins, Missed Kicks & that 7-9 BS
The 160th Episode of The Woot and Wye Show is a comprehensive wrap up and discussion of the major issues that Week 11 of the NFL season spat out for us. This includes everything from those 12 record breaking missed extra points, Jeff Fisher tying the Tom Landry for the second most losses ever by an NFL head coach in 82 fewer games, the Chiefs stinking it up at home to an average Tampa Bay side and the Cowboys offensive line continued dominance.
Perhaps the most intriguing discussion on the podcast surrounded the form of two NFC playoff contenders in the New York Giants and Detroit Lions. Conor Orr of NFL.com produced an article this week looking at the historically low Margin of Victory for both teams. The Giants have 27 points separating their seven wins and the Lions have a chance to tie or beat that this Thanksgiving against Minnesota as they sit on 24 points across six wins. So we asked, are the Giants or Lions good or lucky?
The Giants margin of victory over 7 wins is 27 points, the lowest in NFL history.
Kirk Cousins decision to gamble on his playing future and future earnings has been a big talking point this week and we weigh in what type of money he will be looking at and what that means for the future of the Washington Redskins and the 2017 free agent QB class.
