Unlike you (apparently), I can admit when I'm wrong.
I only looked at the title of the post and did not RTFA. I went back and read it later and saw that his prediction included 2 TD's. So that is a different story. My bad, but Portis still did well.
You, on the other hand essentially made this counter-prediction and you were way off, but have yet to fess up to it:

Remember now, they played SD, which has LT, and KC, which had Priest and LJ. LT scored the only 2 TDs that they've given up at home but they held him to 52 yards on 19 carries, I don't know about your math but that puts him at 2.7 ypc. They held KC to 3.4 ypc. So Denver is super tough against the run at home. Portis has 63 carries and 263 yards giving him 4.2 on the ground and no TDs this year. In his only game on the road this year he had 52 yards on 17 carries. That was against Dallas who is the 23rd ranked run D. Now if Portis can only manage 3 ypc vs. the 9th worst run D in the NFL, how do you think he will fair vs. the 4th best run D in the NFL? I think they will shut him down."
I will stand behind the part of my statement where I said "Shut your pie hole".
