Monday Morning Mancave: 11/16/2015 Edition

Welcome to the latest installment of the Monday Morning Man Cave. After an incredible weekend in sports, this week  ahead holds no punches back. Between  Monday Night Football to Survivor Series, this week  lineup  is  loaded with more kicks  then a Holm vs Rousey fight.Sit back , relax and lets take a look at this week’s lineup , in sports and pop culture .

Monday Night Football –  Houston Texans vs Cincinnati Bengals :The Bengals sit at a franchise-best 8-0 start and with remarkable health. Houston is quite the opposite at 3-5 with a laundry list of an injury report. Still, these Texans look dangerous because they’re still alive in the playoff hunt thanks to residing in what may be one of the worst divisions in history, the AFC South. The  Bengals  will look to continue  to stay undefeated  and to  keep pace  with the Patriots for AFC supremacy .

Tuesday College Basketball #2 Kentucky  vs  #5 Duke: The college basketball season really begins with the annual 24-hour hoops marathon that ends with the Champions Classic, which features the Kentucky Wildcats taking on the Duke Blue Devils. Both teams  have  championship aspirations.When  these  two  teams play each other, it’s always must see TV. This match up will be the second of two games in the fifth annual State Farm Champions Classic from the United Center in Chicago with the second being Michigan State vs. Kansas. The four teams face off  as part of the 24-hour marathon of college basketball on the ESPN network.

Thursday Night Football – Tennessee Titans  vs  Jacksonville Jaguars :  With  the Colts under performing ,  this  division is wide open. The Jaguars  can  claim a share of  first place  with a win  against  the Titans on Thursday Night. Bortles  has been the most consistent  QB in the AFC South all season.

Friday – Netflix- Marvel’s  Jessica Jones : Netflix and Marvel , team up  for  another  amazing series called  Jessica Jones.  Jessica settles in New York City and opens her own detective agency, called Alias Investigations, which seems to be called into cases involving people who have special abilities. Suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Jessica wants to do good, but her primary interest isn’t in saving the world, it’s saving her apartment and getting through each day. With Adult language and a  very dark  tone , this series isn’t for kids. Expect a lot of  cameo appearances in this  14 episode season. Start your binging on Friday

Saturday College Football   #13 Michigan State  vs  #3  Ohio State : Finally ,we are going to see  Ohio State  Buckeyes  take on  real  competition. The third-ranked Buckeyes (10-0) have breezed through their schedule despite looking less than stellar against over matched teams, but the slate will be much tougher as they move toward another berth in the College Football Playoff.Standing in their way this week is No. 13 Michigan State (9-1), who’s looking for revenge from last year’s 49-37 loss to Ohio State. ESPN’s College GameDay crew, will be in attendance and the selection committee will be watching closely this Saturday.

Sunday NFL  Week  11  Key Games :   Week 11  is  here and  where rapidly approaching the  4th quarter of the NFL season. Some key games to look at are :

Green Bay  vs   Minnesota: Winner will be  in first place in the NFC North.

Denver  vs  Chicago :  The wheels are  falling off  fast for Denver. Chicago quietly are still in the playoff hunt.

Cincinnati vs Arizona : Could be a  possible Superbowl preview .



Sunday –  WWE Survivor Series : On Sunday November 22WWE Survivor Series 2015 will take place .This will be the 29th installment in what’s been known as one of WWE’s “Big Four” PPV shows. This year’s show is being built as a celebration of the Undertaker’s 25 year anniversary in the company. On November 22, 1990, Survivor Series featured the very first on-air appearance of the Undertaker as a mystery partner for Ted Dibiase’s Million Dollar Team.  At Survior Series ,Undertaker and Kane will face two members of the Wyatt Family. Seth Rollins ,was suppose to defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship , agaist Roman Reigns. Unfortunately, Rollins suffered a torn ACL  injury and now will be sidelined until Summerslam. Instead, WWE will hold a tournament to determine who the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion will be. Look for Reigns vs Ambrose  final. I see a  Heel turn coming from Reigns as well as him  being crowned the new Champ. Other note worthy matches include: Charlotte vs Paige for the Divas Championship. New Day vs  The USOS  for the WWE Tag Team Championship
