NFL: Las Vegas Raiders at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Are you looking forward to LSU football this Saturday? Wait you aren’t? Oh yeah that’s right. Well the good news is we have plenty of former LSU Tigers the next day (and one on Tuesday!) to fill that void. Let’s see what we got this week.

SAINTS at FALCONS

When: Dec. 6, 12:00 CST on FOX

Former LSU Saints Players: LB Kwon Alexander, C Will Clapp

Former LSU Falcons Players: LB Deion Jones, WR Russell Gage

We’ve talked about DBU a lot, but do we have a case for LBU? Devin White is upon the most feared LBs in the league, Patrick Queen has been a rookie revelation, Deion Jones pulled off a pick six last Sunday and Kwon Alexander was a shoe string tackle away from his own defensive TD, even Duke Riley, Kevin Minter and Barkevious Mingo are still contributing. I have no idea how this compares to other schools’ claims to LBU, but it was just on my mind for this Kwon-Deion matchup.

SCORE: 7/10

BROWNS at TITANS

When: Dec. 6, 12:00 CST on CBS

Former LSU Browns Players: WR Jarvis Landry, LB Jacob Phillips, WR Odell Beckham Jr (injured), CB Greedy Williams (injured, if he’s still even alive??)

Former LSU Titans Players: CB Kristian Fulton

Somehow it took until Week 12 for Baker Mayfield to throw a TD to Jarvis Landry. I would say the Browns need to work on some things, but this is their best 11-game start since 1994. Sooooo interesting! These teams are both 8-3 and it might be kind interesting??

SCORE: 6/10

RAIDERS at JETS

When: Dec. 6, 12:00 CST on CBS

Former LSU Raiders Players: TE Foster Moreau, DE Arden Key

Former LSU Jets Players: None

Coaches out here getting fired while 0-11 Adam Gase is still sliding his keycard into the facility every morning. Incredible stuff.

SCORE: 4/10

JAGUARS at VIKINGS

When: Dec. 6, 12:00 CST on CBS

Former LSU Jaguars Players: WR DJ Chark, LB K’Lavon Chaisson

Former LSU Vikings Players: WR Justin Jefferson

The Vikings traded Stefon Diggs to Buffalo in exchange for a first-round pick. They used that pick to draft Justin Jefferson, who is already a better receiver. Tough luck, Bills. Vikes games are gonna score high as JJ’s OROY Campaign heats up, but DJ Chark makes this a really solid watch.

SCORE: 8/10

BENGALS at DOLPHINS

When: Dec. 6, 12:00 CST on CBS

Former LSU Bengals Players: QB Joe Burrow (fuckin’ Bengals)

Former LSU Dolphins Players: LS Blake Ferguson

The Bengals really blew our chance at seeing Burrow v Tua III. I’m pissed. Tua has his own injury he’s dealing with so it still might not have happened, but it was great to her that he reached out to Joe and sent good vibes his way.

Love to see it. Still a boring game.

SCORE: 1/10

COLTS at TEXANS

When: Dec. 6, 12:00 CST on CBS

Former LSU Colts Players: None

Former LSU Texans Players: None

Even worse!

SCORE: 0/10

LIONS at BEARS

When: Dec. 6, 12:00 CST on FOX

Former LSU Lions Players: None

Former LSU Bears Players: LB Barkevious Mingo

At least it’s not in prime time.

SCORE: 1/10

GIANTS at SEAHAWKS

When: Dec. 6, 3:05 CST on FOX

Former LSU Giants Players: None

Former LSU Seahawks Players: S Jamal Adams, G Damien Lewis, C Ethan Pocic

A 4-7 team and 8-3 team facing off. Also the 3 and 4 seeds in the NFC. Abolish the NFC East.

SCORE: 5/10

RAMS at CARDINALS

When: Dec. 6, 3:05 CST on FOX

Former LSU Rams Players: DT Michael Brockers, T Andrew Whitworth (injured)

Former LSU Cardinals Players: CB Patrick Peterson, DE Rashard Lawrence

The NFC West really is the Thunderdome.

SCORE: 5/10

PATRIOTS at CHARGERS

When: Dec. 6, 3:25 CST on CBS

Former LSU Patriots Players: LB Tashawn Bower

Former LSU Chargers Players: G Trai Turner, DE Breiden Fehoko

Big shout out to Fehoko for playing his first NFL game! He wasn’t just an extra body, he was a force!

If you contributed in literally any way to the 2019 LSU Tigers, you’re probably good enough to play in the NFL.

SCORE: 4/10

EAGLES at PACKERS

When: Dec. 6, 3:25 CST on CBS

Former LSU Eagles Players: S Jalen Mills, LB Duke Riley

Former LSU Packers Players: None

I just realized I forgot to mention Seahawks-Eagles on last week’s preview. You shouldn’t watch the NFC East. I regret nothing.

SCORE: 3/10

BRONCOS at CHIEFS

When: Dec. 6, 7:20 CST on NBC

Former LSU Broncos Players: C Lloyd Cushenberry, CB Kevin Toliver

Former LSU Chiefs Players: RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB Darrell Williams, S Tyrann Mathieu

Remember how I said Kwon Alexander almost had a TD last week? Our other boy Lloyd won’t look back on that fondly.

I doubt he’ll look back on playing the Chiefs fondly either.

SCORE: 7/10

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM at STEELERS

When: Dec. 7, 4:00 CST on FOX

Former LSU Washington Players: None

Former LSU Steelers Players: T Jerald Hawkins

A bonus Monday afternoon game! You Jerald Hawkins stans are gonna love this!

SCORE: 1/10

BILLS at 49ERS

When: Dec. 7, 7:15 CST on ESPN

Former LSU Bills Players: CB Tre’Davious White, LS Reid Ferguson

Former LSU 49ers Players: None

Tre White against a backup QB has good odds of being fun for LSU fans.

SCORE: 4/10

COWBOYS at RAVENS

When: Dec. 8, 7:05 CST on FOX, NFL NETWORK, AMAZON

Former LSU Cowboys Players: None

Former LSU Ravens Players: LB Patrick Queen

Be honest, you’re gonna watch this.

SCORE: 5/10
