(6-4-0) Browns Well, I think I’ve missed every Brown game I’ve picked. So, this doesn’t bode well for them, but, I think they’ll beat the Falcons (leaders of the worst division in the NFL)
(7-3-0) Eagles The NFL has shown that on any given Sunday …… but, this should be a yawner.
(8-2-0) Patriots This should be a great matchup. A strong defense against a strong offense. Last week, the Pats showed they can run the ball as well as pass. They’ve also recently signed LeGarrette Blount, a talented head-case. He played for the Pats last year and did really well.
(7-3-0) Packers The Vikings are in trouble at RB. McKinnon, a fine back is beat up, but, all the other backs are out. They’ve picked up a warm body from Cleveland to backup McKinnon. This means it will likely be up to the QB …… I don’t think Bridgewater is going to winning a passing contest against Rodgers.
(6-4-0) Colts This is another which should be a yawner. The Colts need this win to remain ahead of the Texans.
(5-5-0) Texans This is a tough one to pick. I can’t figure out the Texans. Foster is questionable today, but, they didn’t need him against the Browns, as they dominated them. A team which humiliated the Bengals just a week prior. I’m going with the home team in this one.
(4-6-0) Bears Well, someone has to win this game, right? The Bears should come to the game ready to play. Another loss and their season should be effectively over.
(9-1-0) Cardinals What a difference a year makes. The Seahawks are tough at home, but, I haven’t seen the perform at the level they did last year. And the Card defense is smothering. Word has it the ‘Hawks are thinking about using Sherman at the WR spot for a few plays. Interesting. Usually, there’s a reason why a player is a defensive player rather than an offensive one. I look for this to be a great game.
(6-4-0) Chargers The Rams shocked the NFL with a win over the Broncos last week. My impression of the two teams is that they’re very close. The Rams aren’t any punks. But, it’s at San Diego, and it’s a pretty talented offense, so I’m going with the Chargers.
(6-4-0) 49ers Well, RGIIIs return to QB has, thus far, been a bust. It’s not going to get any easier for him, today. Heck, we don’t even know if he’ll be the starter, today. But, it isn’t as if it’s just RGIII, their defense was scorched by a rookie WR for over 200 yards. One of the touchdowns he caught had a linebacker trying to defend him. The 9ers should easily win this one.
(7-3-0) Broncos Did the Rams show the world how to beat the Broncs? Well, they went 1-2 on a three game road trip, but, they’re at home, today. The Dolphins are a decent team with a good defense, so, anything can happen, but, I think the Broncs will return to form.
(7-3-0) Cowboys The Cowboys had a much needed bye last week, after playing in a snoozer against Jacksonville. If they’re focused, this should be a win for the ‘Boys. But, it’s the Giants and they get up to play in this rivalry.
(5-5-0) Bills Funny, with Mark Sanchez’ recent success at Philly, maybe it wasn’t just him screwing up the offense. The Bills game has been moved to Monday and moved to Detroit, because of all the snow they’re having in upstate NY. They should beat the Jets.
(6-4-0) Ravens Well, both teams are in a struggle to be leaders of their respective divisions. It’s just that the Ravens are in probably the toughest division and the Saints are in the worst. The Saints shouldn’t be overlooked, though. Drew Brees is still a fantastic QB.
(7-4-0) Chiefs 20
(1-10-0) Raiders 24 The Raiders screwed up and have now jeopardized their draft spot! Could there be anything more deflating than losing to the Raiders?
Well, those are my picks for the week. What are your thoughts?
