Alright, so last week wasn't too hot. I went 8-5 and didn't get too close on any of the games. Although, if we forget about the 1st quarter, which apparently the Hawks did, the score of their game was 32-3, not far off from my 31-0 prediction. Close enough for me! Still riding the hot streak!
New Orleans @ St. Louis
Oh boy. How ugly could this one get? This ugly? Or just this ugly?
Tampa Bay @ Miami
Miami puts up a solid effort every week, and that's exactly what it's going to take to beat a Raheem Morris coached team when they're on a winning streak. Has an NFL team ever had 3 people rush for 100 yards in the same game? I think Brown-Williams-White could do it.
Detroit @ Minnesota
If there's one thing we learned about the Lions last week it's that they absolutely cannot defend the short pass, and this year that has been Favre's specialty. I'm not sure if that's entirely true but it sounds right. What does it matter anyway, this is a squash match. In fact, the Lions aren't even going to get entrance music, they'll just be on the field when Fox comes back from commercial, and they'll probably have wrestling jackets on just for good measure.
Jacksonville @ New York Jets
Anybody else getting tired of Rex Ryan thinking his team is really good for some reason? How about they just let him coach the Chargers so that the whole organization can just be cocky a-holes. That being said, they'll probably win this week because Jacksonville is not good.
Buffalo @ Tennessee
I'll say it again, VY just knows how to get the job done. either that or his first two games were against Jacksonville and San Francisco. And now he gets Buffalo at home. Oh, and Chris Johnson is ridiculous. Other than that it's all VY, and he's gonna do it again this week.
Cincinnati @ Pittsburgh
Alright, I made a mistake going against the Bengals at home last week, but I'm not going to do it again this week! That's because they're playing on the road.
Denver @ Washington
Good news! Ever since I asked the Broncos to lose out a couple weeks ago they have kindly obliged. This is going to be a bit of a tall order though. Honestly, if you played for the Skins what would you be more ashamed of, your play on the field or the fact that your team name is a racial slur? Trick question, they're actually most ashamed of the Scientologists in their luxury box.
Atlanta @ Carolina
What did I tell you about the heat that DeAngelo Hall would generate in his return to Atlanta. This leads me to my Wacky Pick of the Week. Hall will sneak onto the field in a Panthers uniform and attempt to sneak attack Falcons coach Mike Smith in a response to their altercation last week. However, Smith will see him coming and be like, "Oh hell no!" Then he'll beat him down Finn on Nick Van Exel style. Aside from that though, has anybody noticed that Matt Ryan isn't that good this year? I smell a mild upset.
Kansas City @ Oakland
He does this, he does that.
He big as a bull and quick as a cat.
Those are some lyrics from "Man Called Sting," ironically it was also the scouting report on JeMarcus Russell coming out of LSU.
Winner: The people at home in the Oakland area. Ok fine, Chiefs 14-13
Seattle @ Arizona
I've learned that when it comes to the Cardinals I should just pick against whatever my first inclination is. Which means I get to pick the Hawks again!
Dallas @ Green Bay
Up until last week Aaron Rodgers had only thrown 2 interceptions. That seems like a really good stat until you realize that he's now been sacked 37 times. That's almost 5 a game. Might be time to start slingin' the pigskin as if he were out in the backyard playin' ball with the boys all while wearing a comfortable pair of jeans.
Philadelphia @ San Diego
I think this will be a big win for San Diego. And if we see LaDanian Tomlinson making his pouty face on the sideline at the end of the game we'll know that Darren Sproles has helped them get that win.
New England @ Indianapolis
Baltimore @ Cleveland
Oh what a game! Did you know that the Saints defense has scored more touchdowns than the Browns offense? There's no joke here, well except for the Browns of course.
