LAST WEEK: 11-4-1 :: OVERALL: 97-62-1
A tie! Has been 6 years since the last time that happened, and this time, it fooled one of the games best quarterbacks. Have you heard that? Eagles QB Donovan McNabb said after the game that he was unaware that a game could end in a tie. Wow. You’d think that one of the premier players in the league might actually know the rules! (Especially when my seven year old knows that!!)
On to the picks for this week…
Cincinnati was a bit better than expected, but really… no one expected much anyway. So it wasn’t hard. WINNER: Pittsburgh.
It really does seem this team might go 0-16. WINNER: Tampa Bay
Game could go either way, but Houston has been more impressive in their mediocrity this season. WINNER: Houston
Remember when this game was a highlight of the NFL season? WINNER: Dallas
Philly may not know all the rules, but the Ravens looked awful against another NFC East team last week. WINNER: Philadelphia
This could be a really good game… two power running teams, and good defenses. Jags are home. Vikes haven’t overly impressed. WINNER: Jacksonville
Do you really think Belichick will lose twice to them in one season? WINNER: New England
This game is actually kind of tough to pick. Give the edge to Tennessee because Chicago is starting Rex Grossman. WINNER: Tennessee
St. Louis had three good games… but I don’t expect any more. WINNER: Chicago
If the J-E-T-S are the “second best” team in the AFC, then the AFC is really, really bad. WINNER: Tennessee
The Bills finally get a chance to beat up on somebody. WINNER: Buffalo
Oakland (the players) really is much better than their record, but this game is in Denver (who probably aren’t as good as their record…) WINNER: Denver
Everyone likes playing the NFC West this year. But I have a funny feeling about this one. WINNER: Seattle
I know the Giants just made the Ravens – a good team – look silly, but I just like the Cards chances. They really do play well at home. (But the Giants play well on the road…) Anyway… WINNER: Arizona
Why are these two teams winning so many games? This one goes to the home team. WINNER: Atlanta
Manning is just too good to lose to this year’s Chargers. WINNER: Indianapolis
These teams are both 5-5 for a reason. They’re pretty good, but unpredictable. I’ll probably get this wrong, but going with the home team and the offense. WINNER: New Orleans.
Time for the Bills to get back on track. Chiefs defense is really not great… Bills may have gotten the running game untracked… let’s hope it all comes together!
