Each week I write an article for Gaming Today, a popular newspaper published here in Las Vegas. This week, I forgot to hit send, and my article never made it to the publisher. Just wanted you to see, thoughts on my mind, before last week’s #TNF game. Was I right?
Rams head out on the road, looking to strike gold in Niner Country

Sometimes I get a good feeling when I look at a matchup and I know right away which side I want to be on. That’s not to say I don’t do my homework, but my gut feeling, when it’s strong, very often tends to be right. Only this week, I have none of those ‘warm and fuzzies’ for either team. Only somebody’s got to come out on top, and since I am charged with writing about Thursday night football, I need to decide which team has the edge in this matchup. Dare, I say neither?
Truly this one can go either way, and it’s sort of like deciding whether you want to put your money on ‘Red or Black’ because it’s going to be a toss up. So far this year, the Rams have dominated the Colts in Week One, and fallen short to the Washington Redskins in Week Two. The Niners, on the other hand, have yet to win a game. Only last week, they held the Seattle Seahawks to a total of twelve points. Only problem is they scored less than that, and did not take advantage of the opportunity.
Something to note that might be significant is that last year the Niners won two games, and both of them were to the Rams. In both of those games, the Niners scored more than twenty, not much more mind you, but more.

Not too sure, so I think it’s wise to stay away from the total, and look for the Niners to come out victorious. Why? They are home, they know they can beat this team, and they need to win. Nobody wan
