XANDAMERE’S SHOWDOWN SLANT
Week 8 is here and so is a new Showdown writeup! Thursday night brings us a game that looked really exciting to start but has turned weird (though still exciting) thanks to two of Green Bay’s top receivers, Davante Adams and Allen Lazard, being put on the Covid list. It’s possible Davante could be cleared in time to play (since he’s vaccinated, he needs two negative tests 24 hours apart to be cleared which is unlikely but theoretically possible), while Lazard is unvaccinated and definitely out, as he’s required to be away . . .
