The NFL is offering two for the price of none

VIP NFL Football's Dirty Dozen | The worst Pro Football teams against the spread coupled with bonehead decisions.
Forget the ‘72 Dolphins which gave us the NFL’s only undefeated team. The sadists that make up the Dirty Dozen panel are ecstatic at the thought of two winless teams in the same season.
Yes folks, the Cleveland Browns of the AFC and the San Francisco 49ers of the NFC have yet to taste victory and very possibly will run the table for the imperfect 0-16 season. Ah, we can only hope.
The Browns seem safe this week, an 11-point road dog at Detroit. However we are concerned about the Niners as a live 2.5 point home dog to the New York Giants, who have plenty of problems of their own. But the Giants have a win. We want the Niners to reach 0-10 and the Browns 0-9.
Our biggest concern is that the 49ers will come to their senses and play Jimmy Garoppolo at some point instead of C.J. Beathard at QB. They say they’re not, but Nick Saban once upon a time said he wasn’t leaving the Dolphins for Alabama and you know that story.
Heck, as bad as this Lame of the Week sets up, it wouldn’t shock us if Eli Manning started the first half for the Giants and the second half for the Niners. As for the Browns, DeShone Kizer is their flavor of the month at QB facing the richest gunslinger in pro football Matthew Stafford, who is playing like it. Kizer against Stafford is like attacking the infantry with a pop gun.
