So, about last week ……… did I ever mention that I hated parity? I didn’t do very well, but, maybe this week I get back on track.
(4-5-0) Steelers Speaking of getting back on track …… The Browns should eventually win a game this year. But, prolly not today.
(8-1-0) Cowboys This should be a great test for the Cowboys’ dynamic rookies. The Ravens have a rock solid defense. Unfortunately for the Ravens, they don’t have much of an offense, while the ‘boys defense has been surprisingly effective this year. Look for a score of something like 20-10 Cowboys.
(5-4-0) Lions So, just prior to writing this, I clicked on MSN’s predictions. I got the giggles. Here’s one of their predictions …. “4. Jaguars declaw Lions after Blake Bortles throws four touchdowns” While it’s entirely possible Bortles does throw 4 tds, that won’t be enough to win at Detroit.
(5-5-0) Titans An interesting matchup, but, I think the Titans are playing much cleaner football, right now.
(3-5-1) Bengals This is another one which is tough to call. If the Bengals are going to make a run at the playoffs, they need to get started, right now. The loser of this game would put themselves in a huge hole to get to the post season. I think Cincy takes this one …….. maybe.
(7-2-0) Chiefs The Chiefs just don’t look as dominate as the 7-2 record would indicate. I expect today will be no different. And, I expect the results to be no different. They’ll get another W, today.
(6-3-0) Giants As the Cowboys tear up the league, it’s gone little noticed that the Giants remain within striking distance. They’ll remain so after this week.
(4-4-1) Cardinals Boy, you almost want to pick a tie in this game. While the Vikes are reeling with a 4 game losing streak, the Cards haven’t been all that impressive ….. but, they are 3-1-1 over their last 5. OTOH, the Vikes play better at home. Both teams have quality defenses. I don’t really know how to pick this one, but, if I had to bet, I’d bet on the Cards.
(5-4-0) Dolphins My fish are red hot! It’s like they suddenly discovered they could run the football! …… I would have considered this pick a bit more, but, the Rams are going to start rookie Jared Goff. Sorry coach Fisher, not everyone can be Dak, or even Wentz as a rookie in the NFL.
(7-2-0) Patriots Well, you have to play the game. SFs only chance is that if NE completely forgets they’re there to play a game. Brady and co. must be licking their chops at the prospects.
(6-2-1) Seahawks I’m a little scared about this pick, because, MSN also picked the Hawks! The Eagles are a good team. Not great, but, good. Seattle is at home where the play very well.
(5-3-1) Redskins It’s beginning to be a long season for the Pack fans, and, it’ll probably be longer after today. I’m not saying Rodgers can’t get it done today. But, the Redskins are riding pretty high, right now, being 3-1-1 over the last 5 games.
(7-2-0) Raiders This will be the game of the week! Two playoff hopefuls squaring off! The Raiders are only 2-2 at home, but, the game is being played in Mexico. I’m going with the Raiders because I believe they have more weapons at their disposal than the Texans.
Well, that’s how I see it. What do you think?
