Denny Hamlin’s daughter Molly was seen trying her hand at NFL predictions, and it’s been quite the ride. Just the other day, she ended up with a bit of a mixed bag – an 8:5 win-loss score.

Then, faced with the Rams vs. Ravens, she went with the Rams. Colts and Bengals? She was all in for the Colts. The choices kept rolling: Browns over Jaguars, Lions trumping Bears, Buccaneers sailing past Falcons, Jets zooming past Texans, 49ers anytime over Seahawks, Raiders outmaneuvering Vikings, Bills charging past Chiefs, and Chargers electrifying against the Broncos.

But the real head-scratcher came with the Eagles vs. Cowboys. Molly paused a bit there but finally landed on the Eagles, agreeing to Denny Hamlin’s “Was that a tough one?” comment. Flashback to the NFL week 12, when one of Denny’s pals dropped by to quiz her. “Texans or Jaguars?” he asked. “Texans,” she shot back, quickly. Bengals or Steelers? Bengals, without a second thought. She didn’t even bat an eyelid picking the Panthers over the Titans. The streak went on: Buccaneers besting Colts, Falcons flying higher than Saints, and so it went.

One take at a time

Controversies, gossip, and breakneck speeds? Count me in! While F1 has its charm, NASCAR helps me relive those "Roadrash" gaming days. My favorite among the drivers has to be Tyler Reddick. The 23XI Racing pilot is not only likable but also a complete beast when he is on track, more specifically, road courses.
