Well, I did a horrible job of picking last week, but, things are clearing up.
(3-4-0) Bengals The Bengals are coming off an easy win against the Browns. This will be a tougher game, but, they are at home and the Redskins are playing mediocre ball. This is a great test for both teams. The loser of this one will have a hard hill to climb to make it to the playoffs.
(4-2-0) Chiefs KC is rolling right now. I think they’ll continue to do so. KC gets the nod in this one because they have two things the Colts don’t …… a running game and a defense.
(3-3-1) Cardinals I really don’t know what happened to the Panthers, and I don’t care. The Cards were hurt more by the tie than Seattle. They desperately need a W to remain competitive, the Panthers seem obliged to give their opponents Ws.
(5-2-0) Raiders This game will be more competitive than many people may think. The Buccs have found a ground attack with Rodgers. If Oakland was smart they’d start feeding the ball to Murray. In the end, though, the Raiders have too many weapons for the Buccs to defend against.
(4-1-1) Seahawks This will be an interesting game. Despite their record, the Saints have a potent offense. The Seahawks offense doesn’t ……. well, it just doesn’t. I’m picking the Hawks, but ……….
(4-3-0) Texans The Lions are typically a pretty bad team on the road, today will re-affirm this notion.
(6-1-0) Patriots Can anyone stop the Pats? They’ll be tested today against a tough Bills defense, but, I’m still going with Brady and company.
(2-5-0) Jets Well, I hate this pick. I think the Browns are ready for their first win of the season, but, they’re 0-7, so I’m picking the Jets.
(5-2-0) Broncos I almost never pick against a decent Bronco team at home. Today is no different.
(4-3-0) Falcons I look for this game to have a lot of scoring. The Pack is a little less this year and Jones and Ryan have been on fire. I’m picking the Falcons.
(5-1-0) Cowboys Game of the Week!!!!!! This is a huge game for many different reasons. Two rookie phenom QBs facing each other. The difference is Wentz doesn’t have a Tony Romo waiting in the wings. If the Eagles win, look for Romo to be activated and start the next week. But, I don’t think the Eagles will win. Not because of the QBs, but, rather, the RB, Elliot. The Eagles don’t have one of those, either.
(5-1-0) Vikings The Vikings will get back on track after their first loss last week. The hapless Bears are a terrible team this year.
Those are my picks for this week, what do you think?
