So, last week wasn’t very good. 8-6 with my picks. But, things are starting to clear up, so maybe I’ll show some progress this week.
(3-3-0) Rams Well, yeh, things have cleared up a bit. It’s clear the Rams and the Giants are two mediocre teams. I have no idea how to pick this. Rams win my virtual coin toss, so I’m going with them.
(3-2-0) Chiefs This will test a Chiefs d-backfield. But, fortunately, the Saints d-backfield has been tested, and failed. Combine that with a superior Chiefs running game, and the Chiefs should get this one.
(3-3-0) Titans It seems really strange to be picking the Titans in this one. But, the Colt defense just isn’t there.
(5-0-0) Vikings The Vikings D has been crushing all year. This week they’re matched against a good rookie QB. It should be an interesting contest, but, I think the Vikings get this one, too.
(2-4-0) Bengals I think it’s just a matter of time before the Browns pull a win out. The Bengals aren’t anywhere close to what they were last year. But, in this battle for Ohio, I think they’ll get this one.
(4-2-0) Redskins I don’t like picking against the Lions when they play at home. It’s usually a bad idea. However, the Redskins are playing good football right now.
(4-2-0) Raiders This should be a high-scoring affair, in that both teams have very suspect defenses. I think Carr is the better of the two QBs, so I’m going with the Raiders.
(4-2-0) Bills Can my Dolphins continue their winning ways after stunning the Steelers? Uhmm, no, probably not.
(3-3-0) Ravens The Jets have changed QBs. It won’t help. They’re a terrible team.
(2-3-0) Buccaneers Speaking of terrible teams, here’s a matchup of two! Newly acquired Rodgers ran the ball 30+ times last week. Today, he’ll be facing a weak run defense.
(4-2-0) Falcons Believe it or not, this is a tough pick. The Chargers have very competitive in their games and just watching, it seems that they’re getting better at closing them out. But, Ryan and team are flying high. So, I’m going with the home team.
(5-1-0) Patriots Big Ben is out. The question is if the Pat defense can keep Bell contained. I think they will contain him enough to win.
(3-3-0) Cardinals The Cards seem to be getting back on track. But, Palmer is a bit gimpy. He’s not known to be a mobile QB, anyway. If this game was played up north, no question, I’d pick the Seahawks. This is a huge ‘must watch’ game.
(4-2-0) Broncos Going with the Broncs because they’re playing in Mile High.
Well, those are my picks. What do you think?
