Well I honestly hadn't planned on doing another one of these posts, but after nailing the IND-STL game on the nose (42-6) I feel I owe it to myself and the shitload of readers to keep this thing going at least one more week. Not to mention that I went 10-3 in terms of straight up winners and losers which is better than most of the "experts" at ESPN and Fox Sports. Need another reason? My pick NE 34, TB 9; actual score NE 35, TB 7. Look if you haven't figured it out yet, I'm doing picks again this week because damn it, I earned it!
Houston @ Buffalo
The past few weeks Houston has proved that they're not awful, while Buffalo has had two excruciating wins and proven that they may, in fact, still be awful.
Cleveland @ Chicago
Both of these teams were humiliated in blowout losses last week. For the Bears this will probably light a fire under them and they'll be hungry for redemption; for the Browns, it'll just be business as usual.
Seattle @ Dallas
On paper this looks like a recipe for disaster. DeMarcus Ware going against a 4th string (might even count as 5th now) left tackle. But games aren't played on paper, they're played on the field, and sometimes at 10am PT, which is the case this week, and we all know how the Hawks do in those games .... fannnnnnnntastic.
Hawks 21-20 (wink)
St. Louis @ Detroit
I smell a Stinger.
Denver @ Baltimore
Alright Denver, you've already ruined what I thought was going to be a great draft pick. The least you could do at this point is lose out and get us something in the 8-12 range.
San Francisco @ Indianapolis
Well it only took 3 years for that Alex Smith to Vernon Davis connection to come alive, and it will take about 4 and a half minutes for it to die.
Miami @ New York Jets
Anybody heard of this wildcat thing? It's supposed to be wild.
New York Giants @ Philadelphia
I heard they're combining the score from this game with the score from the World Series game later in the night. And whichever city has more ... well nothing will change, why would one game affect the other? That would be stupid. You're an idiot.
Jacksonville @ Tennessee
Oh baby, Vince Young is back as a starter. This could end up being both bad and good. It'll be bad for VY when he throws 4 interceptions, but it'll be good for all of us who have always wanted to see a real-life version of "The Last Boy Scout" opening scene.
Oakland @ San Diego
When I was in school this is the type of game that would come on at 1pm on CBS and I'd decide, "Well I guess it's time to do some homework."
Carolina @ Arizona
This year the Cardinals have been much better on the road, but that's probably just because they haven't played the Panthers at home yet.
Minnesota @ Green Bay
Could somebody get away with assassinating Brett Favre during this game? I say yes. And I'll be banking on that Sunday as I load my gun outside of Lambeau.
Atlanta @ New Orleans
Saints players are starting to talk about going undefeated, which means they'll surely lose. But wait, Atlanta sucks against decent teams on the road.
