Daly Dose 09-18-19 Early CFB and NFL overreactions

This week on the Daly Dose, the New York Giants are benching Eli Manning, Drew Brees is hurt, Jalen Ramsey wants out of Jacksonville, and a young man gets some very bad news from the University of Tennessee. Plus, we reveal the source of our own personal insomnia!

Then, we take a look at some very early sports media overreactions to both college and pro football. Is the SEC overrated? Has the Pac 12 already missed out on the College Football Playoff? Are NFL coaches being gutsy by going for two point conversions in late game situations? Are the New England Patriots finally going to be the first team to go 19-0? We answer these questions and many more!

Finally, last week we saw Las Vegas sports books set the Patriots as nearly a 20 point favorite over the Miami Dolphins, but was that the biggest NFL point spread ever? Our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down five times Vegas gave even less respect to the underdogs!

Then, we conclude our 2019 National Football League preview, as we look at each team and discuss who will come out on top of each division! A long time friend of the show stops by, and we jump into the AFC South. With all of the recent changes in that division, who will come out on top? The NFC South is consistently one of the most difficult divisions to predict. Can the New Orleans Saints remain on top?

We make our way to the AFC West, and discuss how our hometown Denver Broncos will do, and try to predict who will win one of the toughest divisions in the league. The NFC West looks to be top heavy with the Los Angeles Rams leading the way, but could another team sneak up and surprise them?

Finally, we finish our preview, by making our way too early predictions for Super Bowl 54!
