Well, it wasn’t until after many of the games were already over that I discovered that I hadn’t posted my picks, last week. This is probably a good thing, in that I hadn’t been picking all that well, so maybe this changes things.
(3-1-0) Patriots Brady’s back, the Browns are terrible, once again.
(3-0-0) Eagles Is the rookie Wentz for real? Today will be another test for him. I’d like to see him in a shoot-out. But, we may not see that for a while. It’s the Eagle defense which has been carrying the day, so far, but, it’s the Lions at home, so, perhaps….
(1-3-0) Colts Heh! A very weak force against a very movable object!!!! If the Colts are going to salvage their season, then, they’ll have to start today. I think they will against the hapless Bears.
(1-3-0) Dolphins Sigh, another difficult pick between to losing teams. So, I go with the home team.
(3-1-0) Ravens The Ravens seem to have a serviceable team this year. I think they should start emphasizing West in the running game more.
(4-0-0) Vikings The Texan offense isn’t that good. The Viking defense has been crushing, this year.
(3-1-0) Steelers A very good Eagle defense has been the only team successful against the Steelers this year. The Jets defense is not similar to the Eagles’. The Steelers have too many downfield threats for a team like the Jets.
(4-0-0) Broncos Both of these teams have surprised me this year. We’ll see if Mile High will cause the Ryan-Jones connection to come down to earth.
(3-1-0) Cowboys Another great test for the other rookie QB! Is Prescott for real? Is Elliot for real? A few more wins and I think Romo’s career in Dallas will be coming to an end.
(3-1-0) Rams I don’t think either team is all that good, but, maybe the Rams have finally turned the corner. Don’t expect much scoring in this one!
(3-1-0) Raiders Raider RB Murray is out for today. I don’t think it will make much of an impact. IDK, perhaps the Chargers will get it together. It isn’t as if they’re an awful team, it’s just that they can’t play in the 4th quarter.
(2-1-0) Packers Playing at Lambeau is always tough. I don’t think the Giants are up to the task.
(1-3-0) Panthers Maybe it’s time to stop the idiotic Superman impersonations. Newton will be on the sidelines with a concussion this week. Their defense is in shambles. Still, I think they’re better than the Buccs.
Well, those are my picks for today. What do you think?
