This week, HVRHS football coach Doug Richardson and Lakeville Journal Senior Reporter Patrick L. Sullivan share their predictions for the game on Sunday, Nov. 26, Green Bay at Pittsburgh. 
Doug’s Pick
It’s all about the quarterbacks — or lack thereof.
Without Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay is the Cleveland Browns of the NFL: simply awful. Last week’s thrashing by the Ravens has dropped them to less than .500 in the NFC North, and the chances of them climbing out of that hole are slim to none.

Choices for the week

This week, it’s the Buffalo Bills versus the Jets.
Doug’s Pick
I stopped rooting for the Jets when Joe Namath retired. They always have given the appearance of an old, wannabe AFL expansion team, and their lack of  Super Bowl appearances testifies to their inability to “get it done.” And they won’t this week either.

NFL Predictions: Browns vs. Vikings

This week, it’s the Cleveland Browns versus the Minnesota Vikings — in England.
Doug’s Pick
While one has to applaud the NFL’s quest to bring Light to our forebears  by periodically sending two teams across the pond to show the Brits what real football is, offering up what might be a bloodbath between the 5-2 Minnesota Vikings and the miserable, winless Cleveland Browns doesn’t seem like the right endeavor.
