Well, I forgot last week. But, I’m pretty sure I would have gotten most right! This is what I think will happen this week ……
(5-3-0) Texans At the start of the season, most thought the Jags would be a lot better. They’re a terrible team. Add another W to the Texans playoff run.
(4-4-0) Saints This is my upset pick of the day!!!!! After a horrible start this year, the Saints are 4-1 over the last 5 games with Brees being on fire! The Broncs are 2-3 over their last 5 games and 2-2 on the road.
(3-6-0) Jets I can never tell on these sort of games. Neither team is very good, but, both can play defense a bit. I’m going with the Jets because they’re at home against a west coast team.
(6-3-0) Falcons This is another hard pick for me. I think the Eagles are better than what they’ve recently showed, but, Ryan is having a great year. I’m going with Atlanta.
(6-2-0) Chiefs This is a harder call then what the records would appear. The Panthers have won their last two. They seem to be gaining their swagger back. The Chiefs get Smith back, today. They’re going to need him to be on top of his game.
(3-5-0) Buccaneers At Tampa? I’ll take the Bucs over the Bears. Neither team is very good.
(4-3-1) Redskins The Vikes are reeling as of late. I don’t think the Redskins are going to give them a chance to regroup.
(4-4-0) Packers I think the Pack run defense will be just good enough to allow Rodgers to do his magic.
(4-5-0) Chargers Will the real Chargers and Dolphins please step forward? They’re both playing good football of late, with the Dolphins discovering their run game. I’m going with the Chargers because SD is 3-1 at home, while the Dolphins are 0-3 on the road.
(3-4-1) Cardinals For fantasy football players, this offers a horrible dilemma. Sure, the 9ers seem poised to give up huge amounts of passing yardage to Palmer and the Cards …….. except, the 9ers have a horrible run defense, and the Cards have a running game. Expect Johnson to have the better day than Palmer.
(7-1-0) Cowboys Oh, the memories! ……. well, time changes everything, so I won’t dwell on the past. Right now, the Steelers aren’t looking very dominant. Big Ben is beat up and their defense doesn’t look very good. Still, I expect this to be one of the tougher challenges for the young Elliot and Prescott.
(7-1-0) Patriots This should be the game of the day! In the end, I don’t think Seattle’s offense is going to be enough. Maybe their D can pull it off and score some points, but, that’s about the only way I see them winning this one.
(5-3-0) Giants I think Manning has too many weapons for Cincy. I think the NY defense is good enough to keep the Bengal offense in check.
Well, that’s how I see it. What do you think?
