Raiders at Texans (-3.5, O/U 36.5) The game we all have been waiting for, the first game of the NFL Playoffs. In one corner we have Rookie Connor Cook and in the other we have the $72M dollar man Brock Oslweiler. Ok fine, this isn’t the exact game we were hoping for when the season started.

We are all Team Big Blue over here at AVS but that shouldn’t stop us talking about New Jersey Team B. The Jets have really helped us on in our Homer picks each week!

The original is classic, so many good underrated quotes, and while 2-4 aren’t Oscar worthy 5-7 were awesome action movies, no question! Fast 8 will have a different tone without Paul Walker (RIP) but I expect more of the same from the rest of the gang. This small LA family has taken the world by storm the past few years with many Continue reading Pop Culture: Coming Soon to the Movies
